By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Three boats worked their way around the north end of Lake Montgomery Wednesday morning, slicing through the still water and the heavy fog to reach the patchwork of litter cluttering the popular fish ing spot. On each boat, men from the citys Public Works Department and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reached their nets deep into the lilly pads and weedy edges to capture the floating debris clinging to the lakes surface. Only once in the last 20 years has Lake Montgomerys shoreline been cleaned by local or state officials, estimated Thomas Henry, director of the public works department. It needed it. Milk gallons, tangled fishing line, water bottles, chip bags, styrofoam cups and countless cigarettes have accumulated over time along the shoreline and vegetation. Is this going to be a 100 percent fix? No, Henry said. Is the lake going to be 100 percent clean today? No. Its just going to take time. On Nov. 6, lakeside resident George Hudson brought attention to the litter by contacting the Lake City Reporter.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Phil Collins brings charity to Florida MIAMI BEACH — Singer Phil Collins is expanding his philan-thropic prowess to South Florida through his Little Dreams Foundation. The British musician announced Wednesday in Miami Beach that his nonprofit will help South Florida children with artis-tic and athletic dreams to fulfill their potential. Collins created the organization in 2000. Children are selected based on talent, motivation and enthusiasm. Once accepted, they get to work with mentors, who have included Tina Turner, Natalie Cole and others. Past Little Dreams children include figure skater Timonthee Manard and Joe Frank, who currently performs with Earth, Wind and Fire. Collins got his start as the drummer for “Genesis” in the 1970s before becom-ing a solo star in the 1980s with hits such as “In the Air Tonight.”Student shot at Orlando-area HS WINTER GARDEN — The principal of an Orlando-area high school says a student has been shot but is alert. West Orange High School Principal Doug Szcinski posted on the school’s Facebook page that a stu-dent was shot Wednesday afternoon and taken to a hospital for treatment. Szcinski says the school is on lockdown with safety procedures being taken. Szcinski says deputies are at the high school investigating the shooting.Family of shooting victim files lawsuit TAMPA — The Florida family of a woman slain dur-ing the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard is the first to file a lawsuit against the government and defense contractors, alleg-ing that officials ignored red flags about the killer’s dete-riorating mental health. The suit on behalf of the family of Mary DeLorenzo Knight was filed Tuesday morning in federal court in Tampa. The lawsuit named the Navy, the Department of Veterans Affairs and two defense contractors as defen-dants. It’s seeking at least $37.5 million in damages. “We’re all just torn apart,” said Patricia DeLorenzo, the sister of the victim. “We just want to get through this.” Mary DeLorenzo Knight was one of 12 people killed by Aaron Alexis on Sept. 16 before he was killed in a shootout with police.Man pleads not guilty in killing MIAMI — A South Florida man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to first-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of his wife, whose bloody corpse was later depicted in photos he posted on Facebook. The plea was entered during a brief hearing by an attorney for Derek Medina, 31, who also faces charges of illegally discharging a firearm inside their South Miami home and with child neglect without violence. The young daughter of Medina’s wife, 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso, was in the home at the time, but was not harmed. No decision has been made on whether the state will seek the death pen-alty, said Assistant State Attorney J. Scott Dunn. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Yvonne Colodny set a Jan. 29 status hearing to discuss the potential death penalty and scheduled a tentative trial date for March 17.Cities lead nation in foreclosures ORLANDO — Two Florida cities lead the nation in foreclosures of high-end properties worth $5 million or more. The research firm RealtyTrac said in a report Wednesday that Miami and Orlando were at the top of the list of foreclosure activity on homes in the $5 million-plus range. The number of high-end foreclosures is relatively small — only about 200 compared to the 1.2 million properties that had foreclo-sure activity this year. Award-winning chef Judy Rogers dies SAN FRANCISCOJudy Rodgers, the award-winning chef-owner of San Francisco’s Zuni Cafe, has died. She was 57. Gilbert Pilgram, her business partner and longtime friend, said Rodgers died Monday after suc-cumbing to cancer of the appendix. The James Beard Foundation named the Zuni Cafe 2003’s Outstanding Restaurant in America. Rodgers won Beard’s Outstanding Chef award a year later, beating out notable chef Mario Batali and others. Rodgers started cooking in the 1970s after being inspired by Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse, where she met her business partner Pilgram. Pilgram says he’ll continue to run Zuni’s kitchen.Boy’s ‘gun art’ on display at art fair MIAMI — Charles Gitnick is only 11 years old, but his art appears far more mature. The sixth-grader from Los Angeles places toy guns that look like real weapons on a canvas and paints over them, purposely camou-flaging them in an abstract design. He says it’s a way to express his fear of gun violence. His work will be on display at an exhibit, “3D Gun Art,” which coin-cides with Art Basel Miami Beach, one the world’s most prestigious contemporary art fairs. The event is the U.S. extension of the fair held each June in Basel, Switzerland. It runs through Sunday. Charles started painting landscapes, seascapes and palm trees at age 5. In 2011, he wrapped a toy rifle in newspaper clippings of violence and mounted it on a canvass of simi-lar news articles. “This seemed like a way to say to Wednesday:6-3-4 Wednesday:2-6-9-5 Tuesday:2-8-17-24-29 Correction The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2013 3AFrom staff reporterColumbia County has been chosen to receive $9,121 to supplement emer-gency food and shelter pro-grams in the county. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of rep-resentatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Jewish Federations of North America; The Salvation Army; and United Way Worldwide. The Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capac-ity of food and shelter pro-grams in high-need areas around the country. A Local Board made up of a local government official, a faith community represen-tative, and representatives from American Red Cross, Another Way, Catholic Charities, Columbia County Senior Services, Suwannee River Economic Council, The Salvation Army, United Way of Suwannee Valley, and Vivid Visions will deter-mine how the funds award-ed to Columbia County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is respon-sible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies cho-sen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of gov-ernment, 2) be eligible to receive Federal funds, 3) have an accounting system, 4) practice nondiscrimina-tion, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 6) if they are private voluntary organizations, have a vol-untary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Columbia County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with Another Way, Catholic Charities, Suwannee River Economic Council, United Way of Suwannee Valley and Vivid Visions partici-pating. These agencies were responsible for pro-viding 947 meals, 757 shel-ter nights and assistance with 12 rent/mortgage pay-ments. Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Jayne L. Wilson, United Way of Suwannee Valley, at 386-752-5604 x 102 for an appli-cation. The deadline for applications to be received is December 13. County to receive $9,121 in federal emergency funds Non-profits must apply by Dec. 13 to receive funds. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.comLake City residents can discuss annual statistical crime data with the Lake City Police Chief during her quarterly Breakfast with the Chief Saturday at 10 a.m. in the First Apostolic Church. Over a traditional breakfast of eggs and sausage, Chief Argatha Gilmore will detail a mixture of annual in-house statistics from the police department and quarterly reports from Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Held Saturday between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., the event is free for the public to attend. “This is the last Breakfast of 2013,” said LCPD public information officer Steve Shaw. “If any-one has not had the oppor-tunity to come to any of the others, I would encour-age them to come to this one to see what the Lake City Police Department is doing in the community.” Similar to previous Breakfasts, the police department plans to pres-ent their report card on crime. Normally, Shaw said these are quarterly statis-tics, but on Saturday they will be yearly statistics. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement semi-annual Uniform Crime Report, the city’s crime index decreased 2.9 percent, sliding from 580 in 2012 to 563 in 2013. Breakfast with Chief Saturday at 10 a.m. slay both his wife and son sometime Monday, accord-ing to BSO’s preliminary investigation. Following the apparent double homicide, Maldonado Sr. drove to Tallahassee and checked into a room at the University Inn on Tennessee Street, BSO said. He attacked another son, Jose Maldonado, 21, a student at Florida State University, around 7:00 a.m. Tuesday, BSO said. Maldonado nicked his elder son in the ear after fir-ing upon him with the cross-bow and attempted to stran-gle him, authorities said. Although Jose Maldonado was able to escape and elude his father, he did not report the inci-dent to local authorities, BSO said. Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter said staff checked Maldonado Sr. into Cabot Lodge around 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, but could not speculate why Maldonado chose to stop in Lake City. Maldonado Sr. allegedly confessed his crimes to a man in Miami, who in turn contacted Broward deputies around 4:00 p.m., BSO said. “When [SWAT] got to the house, it was dark, there was no response,” BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said. Broward deputies found the wife and son deceased inside after they entered the home around 6:00 p.m., they said. BSO’s Moschella said that initial interviews with the surviving son found that Maldonado Sr. once imported and exported police equipment to South America. He had no criminal history and the family, origi-nally from Ecuador, were once legal residents of the United States but their visas had expired, reports said. “The whole family was possibly facing deporta-tion to Ecuador, the son told us,” Moschella said in her interview. “This was not a family beset with domestic violence. He was depressed because of his financial situation.” BSO said it did not have the crossbow as of press time. Broward deputies immediately issued a nationwide alert for Maldonado Sr.’s arrest, requesting assis-tance from CCSO regard-ing a lead produced by confidential investigative techniques, authorities said. “We did canvassing of the area and were able to able to locate [Maldonado’s black Volvo SUV] at the Cabot Lodge,” Hunter said. CCSO SWAT deputies evacuated the hotel guests from their rooms around 11:00 p.m. while crisis negotiators made several attempts to contact Maldonado Sr. via his cell phone, room phone and over megaphone, before making the call to force entry into the room around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, Hunter said. Initial investigations revealed Maldonado Sr. had not made contact with anyone at the hotel follow-ing his check-in with front desk staff Tuesday morn-ing, he said. Authorities said they won’t be able to pinpoint Maldonado Sr.’s time of death until the medical examiner in Jacksonville produces an autopsy report. People were still trying to piece together the situ-ation and find some under-standing as to what may have triggered Maldonado Sr. to go on his rampage. “There’s just so little known at this point to try to infer a level of motivation without knowing the back-ground of the individual or individuals,” said University of Florida criminology pro-fessor Frederick Shenkman. “One is trying to connect the dots and there aren’t even enough dots to con-nect at this point.” On Wednesday morning, some of the Maldonados’ neighbors said that although the connected townhome walls are thin, there was no indication of the violence that unfolded inside the residence. Marie-Anne Sabourin said she was feeding a neighbor’s cat in Weston when deputies ordered her to remain indoors on Tuesday. “You’re used to seeing this on the news,” she said. “There are no words to express how sad, and to be here not knowing what’s happening inside. It’s ter-rible; it’s terrible.” Neighbors described the Maldonado family as quiet individuals, who kept to themselves. But the teen boy’s drumming was con-stant, they said. He was described as having been a member of the band at nearby Cypress Bay High School. In fact, Sabourin said she would sometimes lin-ger in her car if she heard him playing as she came home, because the beats were good. The boy’s Facebook page has photographs taken while he was making music and with bandmates. Ana Maldonado, who shares Maldonado Sr.’s last name but is not relat-ed, said she never heard a disturbance in the home. She said the family had moved in little more than six months ago. “Truthfully, it’s a really horrible tragedy,” she said. “I had trouble sleeping.” Officials said the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Tallahassee Police and Lake City Police also contributed to the investigation.

BY EMAIL: Teacher grading system still broken Eating my way through the holidays Making short work of a bully A ll the talk about bullying these days reminded me of a day long ago when one bully was cured and went on to be a good wife and mother. This is a true story and none of the names have been changed to protect the innocent, but since I think they’re all dead now, I’m safe. Immediately after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the federal gov-ernment was faced with the dilem-ma of what to do with the Japanese residents who were all congregated on the west coast of our United States. They were considered security risks because California was the nearest access point for a Japanese invasion of the US, and these folks could be potential allies of such an invading force. Therefore, some 120,000 Japanese men, women and children, were rounded up and sent to vari-ous compounds scattered mostly over the west, but some as far east as Arkansas. They were released following the Japanese surrender on September 2, 1945, but these uprooted people really had no place to go, plus our government wanted them scattered and divided in order to remove any future threat. That’s how my little town in Missouri got two Japanese families who were sent there and put to work in the kitchen, dorms and outdoor campus of the Presbyterian Orphanage. There were only two school-age children in these fami-lies, a girl and a boy, cousins who were both in the 8th grade in 1945. They spoke little English, had been interned in a fenced compound for more than three years and were now literally thrown into a class-room of white children, some of whom had lost loved ones at the hands of the Japanese. The only concession they had been given was the choice of a new American name, presumably to make them less conspicuous. The boy chose Gordon and the girl chose Rose. Can you imagine what these children must have felt? They were stared at like apes in a cage, even though our teacher, Miss Nellie Halter, had prepared us for their arrival and tried to keep the disrup-tion to a minimum. While Gordon was quite bright and learned quick-ly, Rose was just the opposite. She was “retarded,” a common expres-sion at that time, and it was obvious she was not capable of learning in a regular classroom. My best friend’s name was Peggy, and although she was an average student, she was not ath-letic in any way, so when we chose sides for a ball game, she was usu-ally the last selected. But with Rose on the scene, she was suddenly better than someone else, so she set about drawing it to everyone’s attention. On this fateful day, poor Rose, who was not only intellectually chal-lenged, but physically challenged as well, had to take her turn at bat. Peggy began by yelling proudly, “Well, here’s an easy out!” Then every time Rose took a swing, usu-ally long after the ball had passed over home plate, Peggy would belt out some other insult. Being 12 years old at the time and full of myself, I told her to shut up, but she didn’t. Inevitably, I wiped up the playground with her, and she was in quite a state of disarray by the time Miss Nellie pulled me off her and led me to the classroom by one ear. Miss Nellie scolded me for not coming to her with the problem so she could “talk” to Peggy, but I told her I already “talked” to her and she just kept on. Miss Nellie never told the principal or my parents about the beating, and Peggy never bullied anyone again to my knowl-edge. Today, I would probably be incarcerated, but I think Miss Nellie real-ized that justice had been served and decided to give it a rest. Rose was later removed from the public school system and learned what she could at home, and Gordon? Well, he was our varsity football quarterback and class president of my high school graduation class of 1950. He immediately took off for California and has never attended a class reunion or been heard from since. The bullying of Rose was handled in less than five minutes and never came up again, but I guess there are some people these days who just don’t appreciate efficiency, effectiveness and expediency! O nce again, every single public educa-tor in the Columbia County School District got glowing reviews in annual state evaluations, released Tuesday by FDOE. This year, according to the numbers, we did even better than last. A remarkable 78.5 percent of local teachers were rated “Highly Effective,” while 21.1 percent were judged “Effective.” That’s up from last year’s figures of 57.5 percent and 42.5 percent, respectively. And just like last year, not one was rated “Needs Improvement” or “Unsatisfactory.” That would be great news.Except for one thing.According to Supt. Terry Huddleston, some local teachers could stand at least a little improvement. Their evaluations by their own principals say so.For a sizeable portion of these educators, however, other factors came into play under the rules, including school grades. The school grade buoyed their less-than-stellar individual numbers, the result being a final assessment, not of “Needs Improvement,” but of “Effective.” Of course, these instructors will still be required to complete a remedial program under state law in order to remain in the classroom. The results were nearly the same throughout the state. Overall, only 1.4 percent of Sunshine State teachers were placed in the category “Needs Improvement,” down from 1.9 percent last year. Just 0.2 percent were deemed “Unsatisfactory.”And here’s the kicker.Once merit-pay mechanisms are in place throughout the state, as required by law, these evaluations will be used to help determine just who should be rewarded with higher salaries for superb performance. So depending on just how our local merit-pay plan is configured, Huddleston observed, teach-ers who do in fact need improvement – and are enrolled in remedial programs to achieve it – could actually qualify for bonus pay. There’s something seriously wrong with this picture. We’re not down on teachers by any means.But not every member of any given profession can be equally adept at his or her job. Some indi-viduals inevitably rise to the top, and they are the ones who deserve to be rewarded. If we are to have accountability in the classroom, we first need intellectual honesty at FDOE. Evaluation systems that mask the shortcomings of those they purport to judge, don’t serve anyone well. C hristmas is a-coming, the old song goes, and the goose is not the only one getting fat. I’ve used that line before and it isn’t as funny as it used to be. Just once, I would like to eat my way through the holidays without picturing, the instant I imbibe in a bit of fudge or a swig of eggnog, exactly how it’s going to look on my hips. It’s an image I’d welcome if it ever prevented or even gave me momen-tary pause from partaking in the tra-ditional holiday eating/drinking orgy. But no, picturing how I will look doesn’t help; it only heaps a big greasy layer of guilt on top of all the fat which, either way, still ends up on my hips. My friends are no help either. Recently I received an early Christmas gift from Joy, a woman who clearly knows no shame. Having grown up, as I did, in the Deep South (where sugar and fat are two of the four basic food groups, along with alcohol and salt) Joy knows all too well my various vulnerabilities. And still, she dared to present me with a time-honored token of our heritage – a gift that can only be truly appreciated when bestowed by one Southerner on another – a big old box of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I was so touched, I could barely speak. Especially with three dough-nuts in my mouth. When I came to my senses, I offered to share one with her (not a glazed one, of course, because those are my favor-ites, but perhaps one of the tacky ones with sprinkles.) And she, bless her heart, had the nerve to say, “Oh, no, I wouldn’t think of it, they’re all for you!!” Then she pro-ceeded to tell me about her latest diet on which she has shed enough pounds to wither away from a whop-ping size 6 to a 4. What do you think? Should I give her a gallon of my grandmother’s famous “Merry Christmas Eggnog,” a recipe made even merrier by a secret ingredient that my grandfa-ther always slipped into his? Fat, it seems, is a relative term, especially to my relatives, whose standards for defining obesity vary widely. My aunt Jane, for example, a woman of uncommon kindness and grace, might describe someone (never mind who) as “a mite big-boned, but cute.” Others in my family (and they know who they are) would not hesitate to say that person is “not bad looking, if only she’d lose a little weight.” Which might explain, while I love all my kin, I liked my aunt Jane better than most. But the person I like best -in the way that he sees me, or rather, in the way I see myself in his eyes -is my brother Joe. Here’s a tip: If you want a true assessment of your weight and how you wear it, don’t step on a scale; ask a blind man. “You look good, Sister,” Joe says as he runs his hand over my face to “see” how I look. I feel good, too, when I hear him say it. Too bad I don’t see him more often. I was thinking this morning about Christmas lights. You know, those little twinkly white lights with long curly strands? By night, they look so lovely, like icicles made of diamonds. And by day, they look like gobs of tacky plastic hair. They’re the same, night or day, rain or shine, Christmas or the Fourth of July. So are we, really, despite the addition of a few extra pounds or years. The real difference, it seems, is in the kind of light that shines upon us -whether it makes us feel as lovely as diamonds or as tacky as plastic hair. My plan for the holidays is to see myself in the best light possible, in the eyes of those who love me as I am, and to reflect that same light on them. I can always diet in January.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2013 5A OBITUARIES Each month, Hudson paddles his boat onto the lake with a pitchfork, collecting garbage from around his property’s edge. While the expanse of water in front of his home remains unblemished by litter, Hudson’s view across the lake is dotted with people’s trash. He decided the pollution was just too much. A call to Lake City Public Works revealed the depart-ment believed the FWC was responsible for cleaning Lake Montgomery. However, the state agency said trash collec-tion is not a responsibility of its biologists, who monitor the local fish populations. Both agencies agreed to help get the lake cleaned — and on Wednesday, FWC provided the boats and the city provided manpower. The city’s employees arrived at the lake at 8:30 a.m. armed with approximately 100 trash-bags, each capable of holding 55 gallons. They started clean-ing the shore as soon as they arrived, using trash grabbers to reach the pieces they could. They filled 30 garbage bags by lunchtime, and even located in the lake two trashcans missing from the dock. Already the city has placed green-and-white signs near every trashcan in the park, ask-ing the visitors to “Pitch in!” “We’re doing everything we can,” Henry said. “What we’re going to have to do is figure out who is going to take responsi-bility of Lake Montgomery. It’s not really the city’s responsibil-ity to clean waterways.” Since the problem was brought to his attention, Henry worked to make the first clean-up possible by making phone calls to the FWC. The state agency jumped on board as soon as Henry contacted them. The plan is to continue to clean the lake, but he hopes to get the Suwannee River Water Management District involved. “Any boat ramp we come to, we just can’t leave it covered in trash,” said FWC fisheries biol-ogist Dan Dorosheff. “We’ve left this place because you just can’t do it all. We like to leave our areas that are supposed to be nice habitats looking clean. We don’t like litterbugs.” The three FWC boats pushed away from shore loaded with two city employees, spreading out across the lake to tackle as much trash as they possibly could. A lot of the trash was too entangled in roots and weeds to reach, even from the boat. Meat trays, lipstick containers, children’s toys — the items piled in the boat’s center, cov-ered in muck from the lake. Car oil containers, lighters and fast-food straws — there was no limit to the variety of trash the group found. But for as much as they could do, the group could only get so much. “Trash on the bottom never gets cleaned,” Dorosheff said. “It just gets buried. It gets entombed. ... This litter [on the surface] is an easy form of pol-lution to address. I can see it.” As the boat pushed through the lilly pads, remnants of trash still clung to the plants. A wake of trash, Dorosheff added. With the local FWC branched across 17 counties, Dorosheff said he has seen lakes just as pollut-ed as Lake Montgomery. The lake’s water isn’t tainted, but the floating trash visually pol-lutes the water and can cause harm to the local wildlife. Lake City resident James Montgomery came out Wednesday to help with the clean-up. After he noticed the problem when he visited the lake a couple months ago, Montgomery said he called Lake City to see what could be don. “It’s embarrassing how trashy it was,” Montgomery said, whose family gave the lake its name. “But it’s like trash on the highways, it will be back. We’re just in a throwaway society.” LAKEContinued From 1A Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLake City Public Works crew lead-er Jody Raulerson sifts through garbage scooped out of Lake Montgomery during a clean up campaign Wednesday morning. care of yourself, following doctor’s directions and taking meds on time,” he said. Pineda has been a part of the tour since it started its showings in 2012. “This means a lot because we get to help a lot of people,” he said. “It’s best to get treated so you can find out your status before it’s too late,” he said. Pineda lives in Central Florida and has attended Faces of HIV exhibits there before and he also plans to attend the exhibit in Lake City on Saturday. “Our exhibition tells our stories, so we can educate and help others understand about the virus and cut the stigma as well,” he said. Larette King, a Prevention Training consultant with the Columbia County Health Department, said the exhibit travels around Florida and has already been to Gainesville and other central Florida towns, but this will be its first stop in Lake City. She said she hopes the exhibit has a profound impact on Columbia County residents and compels them to be tested. “We hope residents here will see the Faces of AIDS, people that are living with HIV and AIDS, and through hearing their story about how they contracted HIV and are living with HIV, will get rid of the stigma of HIV,” she said. “These are people that are showing their status and really working towards helping others.

The superstars latest single, Dirt Road Anthem, was also written by Gilbert. CHARLIE DANIELS Fiddle-playing country music icon, Grand Ole Opry member, Emmy winner, songwriter and staunch supporter of American freedom Charlie Daniels has performed for more than 50 years. In 1958, Daniels began his professional music career performing with The Rockets, and 50 years later (Jan. 2008) was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. His style is an exhila rating mixture of rock, country, bluegrass, blues and gospel. Formed in 1972, a new CDB release pays tribute to its musi cal heritage with Southern Rock favorites Freebird, Long Haired Country Boy and Cant You See. Daniels is a vocal advocate of preserving American freedoms, authored Aint No Rag: Freedom, Family and the Flag, is an awarding winning songwriter for country, Christian and childrens music. COLT FORD Cathead biscuits, hunting dogs in the back of dusty pickup trucks, life in mobile homes, hunting and fish ing, mud-bogging, beautiful Southern women, bull-riding anthems, firing up the out door grill, beer drinking, good name it, and its in the language of Southern rednecks. Thats the language Colt Ford speaks to his thou sands of fans when he writes country rap songs that speak to rednecks everywhere! This Athens, Georgia husband and father of two who believes in God, country, the South and freedom of expression began his rise to fame early in his music career at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. Hes now a world-wide celebrity, plays all over, has been nominated for many awards and makes albums left and right. His latest video is Back with Jake Owen. He just released Ride Through the Country Revisited to go with his Driving Around video and more. MONTGOMERY GENTRY Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry as Montgomery Gentry are poised to stake their claim as one of country musics alltime greatest duos. These two Kentucky boys first busted onto the national scene in 1999 with the defiant Hillbilly Shoes, and notice was servedcoun try music had never seen a hard driving duo like this. Montgomery Gentry remains in touch with its working class roots in spite of millions of sold albums, scores of awards and accolades. We are blue col lar workers, and we lived the songs that we sing, says Troy. The duo has 14 Top 10 singles, # 1 singles Something To Be Proud Of, If You Ever Stop Loving Me, Lucky Man, Back When I Knew It All and Roll With Me and the list goes on and on. JUSTIN MOORE Its a dirt road, a fishing pole, a cold beer sittin on a tailgate, an old church, a kind word, its where I was born and raised, Heaven aint that far away. The lyrics from Justin Moores self-penned song, If Heaven Wasnt That Far Away, typifies his philoso phy on life. Moore embodies the soul and character of a kid from a small town where he was born. One set of grand parents farmed, and thats where Moore learned about helping with chores and hard work. Justin Moores recent hit, Point At You, went #1, as did If Heaven Wasnt So Far Away. Other hits include Bait A Hook, and Small Town USA. CHRIS CAGLE After trying college a while, Chris Cagle set off for Nashville to write and play music. After several years of scraping up enough cash to record four original songs for a demo tape, Cagles first #1 smash, I Breathe In, I Breathe Out, remains a fan favorite. After two gold albums, two # 1 albums and 12 charted songs, Cagle felt burned out and retreated to Oklahoma for a while, built his own home, mar ried and has a daughter now. Cagles 2012, Back In The Saddle is his homecoming a rekindling of his creative flame and a roaring reminder of his rock-infused country roots. Cagle still has a fire, but his passion is driven not only by music, but family, horses and a place he calls home. JJ LAWHORN JJ Lawhorn is the epitome of a good ol southern boy. With hunting, fishing and working on his truck as just a few of his hobbies, this rural Virginian lives a life most country artists only sing about. I grew up working with my handsyou knowdoing good hard physical labor, says Lawhorn. Im proud of my heritage. Im proud of where I come from.

Tigers, Indians ready to meet in first game of annual seriesBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt was an even split last year for the Tigers and Indians, so both Columbia and Fort White high school’s bas-ketball programs will be playing for bragging rights tonight. The first contest of the annual two-game series tips off in Lake City at 7:30 p.m. today. Both teams are off to impressive starts this season with only one loss between them. Columbia (3-1) dropped the first game of the sea-son, but has since rebounded to win three straight games. The Indians (2-0) enter the game with an undefeated mark and want more than anything to avoid the blemish from the hands of their rival. “We will be playing at their place and they will be fired up,” Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. “We will try to keep it close. It will be a lot different from Suwannee. We will press full court. We have decent speed and that’s what we do. We will play our game.” Fort White is coming off a 75-35 win against Suwannee High, which Columbia also defeated earlier this season, but the Tigers also had an impressive victory on Tuesday. The Tigers went over to Middleburg High and came away with a 57-47 dis-trict win. The game was out of hand early before Middleburg scored 25 points in the fourth quarter to draw the final margin to 10 points. “The game wasn’t as close as the score,” Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson said. “We didn’t take care of business like I would have liked to down the stretch. The score shrunk. I didn’t play the starters over the final 10 minutes of the game and everybody got in the contest. The good thing is that we’re now 1-0 in the district.” Darrell Jones led the way for the Tigers with 20 points in the contest. “He’s pretty solid,” Jefferson said. “I think I eluded to it in the initial preview to the season. He’s a guy that can score inside and out. He hit three 3-point shots. What’s impressive is he didn’t play very much in the second half. He had all his points in the first three quarters.” Jones wasn’t the only player in double figures for the Tigers as he was joined by Tre Simmons and Dilan Hall with 10 points apiece. Jordan Coppock and Robert Dace added five points each. Columbia now turns their attention to making it two straight against the Indians after closing out last year’s series with a home win. Jefferson knows it’s going to be a tough task after seeing what the Indians were able to do against Suwannee. “I heard they won really big,” he said. “They’re pretty good, just like they were last year. They can shoot the ball. With (Melton) Sanders and (Jalen) Wyche alone, they can give you 40 points on any given night.” Jefferson admits that the Tigers haven’t played their best game yet and it’s going to take a collective best effort of the season for Columbia to hand the Indians their first loss. “We have to play better than we did against Suwannee and we defi-nitely have to play better than we did (Tuesday),” Jefferson said. He also knows that the game will have a special feeling in the air and a Indians pressure too much for Suwannee, 75-35From staff reportsFort White High’s basketball team smoked Suwannee High, 75-35, in Live Oak on Tuesday. Melton Sanders led four Indians in double figures with 24 points. Paul Perry scored 16, Chris Cottrell scored 12 and Jalen Wyche scored 10. “I watched Suwannee and I knew their offense,” Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. “Our guys came out with full-court pressure. It was tight in the first quarter, but we got No. 13 (Kevarrius Hayes) in foul trouble early and that helped. We made them sub.” Phillips continued to run in his Indians and they blew out the Bulldogs. “The main thing is we Sanders scores 24 points to lead Fort White to victory.

A 6-iron on No. 17 was good for the elusive ace. Persons topped off his first ace by joining Ed Snow, Howard Whitaker and Nick Whitehurst in overcoming the team of Dennis Hendershot, Bruce Turner, Jim Stevens and Merle Hibbard by a count of 4-3. In match two, the team of Jerry West, Jim McGriff, Eli Witt and Dan Stephens had little trouble in posting a 5-2 win over the foursome of Marc Risk, Paul Davis, Larry Ward and Emerson Darst. Risk posted the best individual score with a 38-39-77. West and “Who Dat?” Stephens checked in with rounds of 79. Stevens, Davis and Snow all shot 39 on the front side. The recent trend continued as scores in the A flight of Wednesday’s blitz were on the anemic side. Mike Jacobs (+4) and Mike Gough (+2) were on top with the day’s only pos-itive numbers. Jonathan Hope and Bob Randall tied for third with -1. Brandon Moore (+9) waltzed to a four-point win over Pete Skantos in the B flight. George Burnham, Lynn Smith and Dell Sanders were all at +3. Dennis Crawford got into the action with a skin on No. 18 that would have taken a nice pot hole payoff if he’d been in the game. Randall, Moore and Jacobs had a skin apiece. Both pot holes carried over. Randy Sommers (+8) nursed a birdie on No 1 to a one-point victory in the Saturday blitz. Jonathan Allen (+7) and Steve Peters (+6) gave Sommers plenty of competition. Keith Shaw (+3) took third place, three points better than Cory DePratter and Jerry West. Scott Kishton and Dave Mehl split the skins pay-out with Sommers and DePratter. Bruce Ford rolled in an eagle on No. 16 to finish in a first-place tie with Russ Adams at +9 in Sunday’s blitz. Dave Mehl was two points back in third place. Closest to the pin winners were Mickey Willcox on No. 5, Mike Gough on No. 7, David Rhodes on No. 15 and Mickey Wallace on No. 17. Ford’s eagle and a birdie held up for skins. Terry Hunter, Gough and Willcox had the other skins. The weekly LGA match was washed out. The pro shop is fully stocked with everything a golfer could want for Christmas. Gift cards are available.

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Nicki Newmans full crowd on hand. “It’s going to be an emotional game to start, but when all that wears off we have to be ready to fight,” Jefferson said. The Tigers have hammered in the idea of compet-ing for a full game through-out the preseason and into the early stages of the year. Tonight, they’ll have a chance to compete for a full 32 minutes in a game that the coach expects to come down to the wire. “We have to go out and compete, but we also have to play smart,” Jefferson said. “I’ve said it all year, but if we can do those two things, then good things are going to happen for us.” Jefferson said one of the keys for a Tigers’ win will be eliminating some of the mistakes he has seen early in the schedule. “We can’t do the things that we’ve done all year,” he said. And more importantly, the Tigers have to be able to combat the things that the Indians are able to throw at them. “I’m concerned about their high screen,” Jefferson said. “We have to defend it. They’ll either go to the bas-ket or they’ll kick it out for an open shot. If we can find a way to defend that, we should be in good shape for a good game.” kept the pressure on and we kept it at full speed,” Phillips said. “We played all our guys to keep them fresh and they responded well. Things may not go our way, but we have got to do what we do.” Five other Indians contributed points. Tyler Velez scored five, with three from Dre Brown, two each from Quan Porter and Isaiah Sampson and a free throw from Joe Powers. Suwannee fell to 0-2 and will play Baker County High at 7:30 p.m. today in Glen St. Mary. Fort White (2-0, 1-0) plays at Columbia High at 7:30 p.m. today. The Indians will close out the week at Oak Hall School at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Fort White returns home on Monday for a district doubleheader with the Lady Indians against Bradford High. The Lady Indians play at 6 p.m. and the Indians will tip-off at 7:30 p.m. Keystone Heights High visits at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 10. INDIANS: Down Bulldogs, 75-35 Continued From Page 1B


DEAR ABBY: I’m the proud mother of four beauti-ful children -a daughter, a son and 8-year-old twin boys. I am having a hard time get-ting people to understand that my boys, whom I rarely refer to as “twins,” are two SEPARATE people! Every year at Christmas some fam-ily members buy gifts for our daughter and our eldest son, and then ONE gift our younger boys are expected to share. Abby, they once received one T-shirt, which was meant for both of them. This also happens on their birthday. Yes, they share a room and they are twins, but they deserve the same respect as their siblings. We have never dressed them alike. They are individuals who should be treated as such like their sister and brother. Christmas is around the corner, and I don’t know how to tell my family members to please buy gifts for both the boys. I realize we have a large family. I don’t expect anyone to go broke. The gift can be a small one. Can you please help me find the right words without sounding greedy? — MOM OF FOUR IN OTTAWA DEAR MOM: Your relatives don’t appear to be particularly sensitive, or they would already realize that children are individuals whether they happen to be wombmates or not. Their “frugality” puts a damper on what are supposed to be happy occasions. It would not be “greedy” to tell them that if they can’t afford a gift for each child -regardless of how small it might be -it would cause fewer hurt feel-ings if they sent none at all for any of your children. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend’s daughter, “Heather,” came to me the other day and told me a girl at school is having sex with a 36-year-old. Abby, the girl is only 13. When I told Heather I want-ed to tell a counselor, she begged me not to because she’s new in the school and doesn’t want to be labeled a snitch. I am torn about what to do. I don’t want her mad at me, but I can’t just stand back and let this continue to happen. Heather and I are nine years apart, so I don’t really come across as a parental figure. I don’t know if I should tell her dad or not. Please help. — DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO DEAR DON’T KNOW: The girl in question is being raped. The 36-year-old is a predator. What you should do is find out the girl’s name and then let her parents know what is going on so they can possibly inform the police. If you can’t locate the parents, talk to a counselor at the school, because a counselor is ethically and legally required to report a crime like this. DEAR ABBY: I recently realized that my parents lied about their wedding date. Because of my mother’s age and health, I haven’t told her I know the truth. My father passed away several years ago, so his obituary states the date they always used. When my mother passes, do I state the true date in her obituary or perpetuate the lie? — DAUGHTER WITH A SECRET DEAR DAUGHTER: I think you should do what-ever you think your mother would want when the time comes. nless your friends read the wedding date with calculators in hand, I doubt they will notice the relation-ship between your age and the nuptials. But if anyone should be so tasteless as to say anything, just smile and say, “Yes, I was a love child.” DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Don’t just sit back; make choices and get things moving. Don’t let what others do paralyze you. Use your energy, time and money wisely. Restlessness will cause distress if you don’t take action. Don’t assume, over-react or overspend. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Keep moving. You’ll be surprised at how much you accomplish. Focus, discipline and showing off your skills and talents will help you reach your goals. Love is on the rise and romance should be planned for the evening hours. +++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Don’t push your luck. Observe and consider your options. Deception and disillusion-ment regarding a partner-ship is apparent. Protect your assets, possessions and reputation. Make alterations based on what works for you, not on what someone tries to manipu-late. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Emotions will surface regarding con-tracts and money matters. Opportunities are within reach, and you should not hesitate to make a move if it will benefit your home, family and future. Love is in the stars and romance will bring you added benefits. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Try something new or travel to an unfamiliar destination. What you learn through the experi-ences you have will help you rethink the way to move forward. New begin-nings will help you put an end to regrets or setbacks. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone with experience and wisdom will offer you advice. Check facts before you decide to make a move based on what you’ve been told. The information given may need to be updated in order for it to work in your favor. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Bad influences will affect your emotional well-being. Don’t make a move or change the way you do things based on demands that someone else is mak-ing. Use your intelligence to help counteract any-one trying to take what belongs to you. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Put what you want to do into play. You can get ahead if you are honest and refuse to give in to defeat. Developing a new approach to an old idea will pay off. Back away from anyone looking for a handout. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Remembering the past will help you avoid making the same mistake twice. Question any information you are given. Base what-ever move you decide to make on facts. Clear up debts and take care of any pending legal, financial or medical matters. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Coast along and share your ideas and plans with people you feel can contribute to your goals. A hidden source may give you reason to question someone’s intentions. Don’t get involved in a partner-ship that appears to have a hidden agenda. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Speak up. You have to make it clear what you want. A contract will ensure that you are taken care of financially. A change in the way you live and earn your living is apparent and will lead to a brighter future. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Participate, but don’t give away your secrets. The more mysteri-ous you are, the greater the interest will become in what you have to offer. Romance is in the stars. Make special plans and you will enhance your love life. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

By JOEDY McCREARY Associated Press DURHAM, N.C. Nobodys laughing at Dukes football program anymore. The 20th-ranked Blue Devils are playing No. 1 Florida State Saturday for an ACC championship and an Orange Bowl berth. Still, it wasnt that long ago when Duke defensive tackle Sydney Sarmiento heard somebody wondering why the perpetually putrid program even bothered to field a football team. Not the butt of every bodys joke anymore, Sarmiento said. The Blue Devils have made believers out of the Seminoles, who routed Duke 48-7 last year in Tallahassee. Just as Florida State has bought into coach (Jimbo) Fishers coaching, I think those guys have bought into their team, Seminoles safety Lamarcus Joyner said. You just see a group of guys that believe in each other, and when you have a belief you can do a lot of wonders. ... I just see a team that believes in each other and has a great coach and some smart players. Theyre on a roll. Now they have to find a way to beat a Seminoles team thats a 29-point favor ite and on track to play for the BCS championship. They also must figure out how to deal with quarter back Jameis Winston the ACCs rookie of the year, a leading Heisman Trophy candidate and the subject of an ongoing investiga tion into sexual assault allegations. Our entire season has been based on people telling us what we cant do, tight end Braxton Deaver said. Youre last in the ACC oh, thats funny, now were first in the Coastal (Division). But what looks from the outside like an out-ofnowhere rise actually has been the product of coach David Cutcliffes patient reconstruction project. Its not an accident. Its a process, Cutcliffe said. Those young men on the 2008 team, 09 team, team all took part in the development of these seniors and upperclassmen. ... Its not just a year. Its not just an event that happened this year. Picked in the preseason to finish last in the division, Duke (10-2, 6-2) has already set a school record for vic tories, captured its first division title and sewn up the first consecutive bowl berths in school history. Thats quite a turnaround for a program that went win less four times from 19962007 with two other one-win seasons while setting the standard for football futility among power-conference schools during what defen sive end Kenny Anunike called the dark years. Deaver said when he arrived in 2010, some longgone veterans from the previous regime carried an attitude of Im going to get my degree and get out of here. And according to Anunike, some of those ex-teammates didnt believe they could win games and instead went into them hoping merely to keep it close. We knew football was on the low end of the totem pole, said running back Josh Snead, a Durham native. We knew it was going to take time. Coach Cut, when he recruited me, told me, Just give me a few years and youll see the changes. Indeed, this Duke pro gram is completely differ ent from the one Cutcliffe inherited from Ted Roof. These Blue Devils were built in the weight room one of Cutcliffes first goals upon his hiring was having the players lose a combined 1,000 pounds during off season conditioning and developed through a patient redshirting process. Lone gone are those days when Duke was pressed into playing most of its freshmen before they were ready. Of the 52 players on the offensive and defensive depth charts, 34 have been redshirted at least once including each of the 10 offensive linemen, all three tight ends, and eight of the 10 along the defensive line. Only four player on the depth chart are in their first year in the program. Conversely, every offensive lineman is a redshirt sopho more or older and the starters along both lines have stayed healthy enough to start every game. Thats basically loading your back end, Anunike said. You might sacrifice a few opportunities where guys might be able to play, but (Cutcliffe is) looking at what theyll blossom into later in their redshirt junior year, redshirt senior year, and see how much more theyll benefit the program than if they got thrown right into the fire. That patience paid off in a most unlikely division title and a chance at an even bigger accomplishment this weekend in Charlotte. Fisher says the Blue Devils caught his eye as a pos sible opponent about three weeks ago.
