Lake City Reporter SUNDAY, JANUARY 12, 2014 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.50 LAKECITYRE PO RTER.COM Chamber building gets a facelift. Local reaction to Florida States perfect season. SUNDAY EDITION 1D 1C By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org A recent spike in the severity of flu cases in North Central Florida has resulted in the death of at least one Columbia County resident hospitalized at UF Health Shands. The Gainesville hospital has seen a striking increase in patients exhibiting influenza symptoms with more than 150 admissions and a dozen deaths since late October, states a press release from UF Health on Thursday. One of those deceased individuals lived in Columbia County, said county Health Department administrator Mark Lander. The name, age and gender of the person has not been released. Gainesville has seen six to 12 cases coming in each week, which is not usually high, Lander said. But the severity of the flu, especially in ages we dont normally see, is the concern. Its having a strong impact on the middle-aged group instead of the elderly and young children. A variant of H1N1, the flu strain currently making its way through north central Florida originally sur faced in 2009, officials said. It seems that a number of young patients are highly susceptible to the virus. Flu seasons can be unpredictable, Lander said, adding that flu-associated deaths in the United States ranged from a low of 3,000 to a high of 49,000 per year between 1976 to 2006. KILLER FLU At least one Columbia County resident has died as a result of flu. More than a DOZEN deaths since October Six to twelve casesEACH WEEK 5 deaths under 40 years of age FILE Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center people admitted 150 to UF Health Shands in Gainesville New emergency protocol underway at countys communication center By TONY BRITT email@example.com The Columbia County Combined Communications Center has imple mented new protocols asking new and more in-depth questions which may save lives during emergencies. The 911 communications center has implemented a program Priority Dispatch called Emergency Medical Dispatch and Emergency Fire Dispatch. Both of these provide a scripted program for dispatchers to follow in medical and fire calls where we can provide the first responders more and better information about what theyre responding to, said Thomas Brazil, director of the 911 communications center and the 911 coordinator. In medical calls the questions can encompass things such as the patients medical history and gives dispatchers the ability to provide prearrival instructions for first respond ers. If necessary the dispatchers could provide information on how to perform CPR or offer first aid assis tance such as how to stop bleeding. Emergency Medical Dispatch was implemented in early October, while Emergency Fire Dispatch was imple mented in early December. Since weve implemented them weve already had three cases where weve given directions on how to do CPR on the phone and weve had two baby deliveries where we gave instructions on what to do over the phone, Brazil said. Prior to implementing the new sys tem, the old protocol was to take basic information such as name and address and send the emergency units. This actually gives the dispatch ers the opportunity to be the first of the first responders in providing assistance to people both with medi cal and fire calls, Brazil said. The protocols recently implement ed at the local 911 center are the protocols used around the world, Brazil said. Its used in China, Europe, Australia, New Zealand they use the same program in multiple lan guages all over the world, Brazil said. Now were following medically scripted questions that will prompt them for additional information... all the things the medics need to know. Theyll have the information in advance and wont have to ask the patient or family what the medical history is when they get there.

Following the hearing, the board will receive a presenta tion from Bruce Kelley, Senior Vice President of the Hospital Mergers & Acquisitions branch of asset management firm First Southwest, who will explain the hospital sale process in greater depth. Then the board of trustees will have a discussion, LSHA Executive Director Jack Berry said. The question they will have to propose and answer is Is the sale of the Lake Shore Hospital Authority assets in the best inter est of the Columbia County citi zens? If the board is inclined to pur sue the sale, they will then have to approve a request for proposal (RFP) for appraisal of LSHAs assets, Berry said. That could happen Monday evening. Next, the board will vote to approve an RFP for a transaction broker and advisor, who would negotiate and sell the hospital a hospital real estate agent, more or less.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Faith Nichole born on Jan. 2By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comTrey and Hayley Smith wouldnt change a thing about their new life filled with the excitement of parent-hood dirty diapers, late nights and the cries of Faith Nichole. Born on Jan. 2 at 7:53 a.m., Faith is the first baby born this year in Columbia County. The Smiths received a basket complete with a handmade quilt, an outfit, a babys first spoon and a doll for their tiny bundle of joy. Faith was born a month before her mothers due date on Jan. 28, weighing 5 pounds, 5 ounces. It has changed my life, Hayley Smith, 20, said. I was nervous at first because I didnt know a whole lot about being a mother. But every-thing came so naturally. Its a bless-ing to be a mom, and the best thing to ever happen to me. Since her birth a week ago, baby Faith goes by several different nick-names, such as Tootie and Princess. Shes been a blessing to the young couple who dated for over a year before tying the knot. For Trey, the new addition to his family has inspired him to change his lifestyle. Hes left behind the partying and decided to change the people he associates with. I cant wait to watch her grow up, Hayley Smith said, adding with a laugh that soon her daughter would be bringing home boys. Trey, cradling tiny Faith in his arms, seemed skeptical. Thats when it will become application time, he said. Shes a week old yesterday, and were already worried about her dat-ing, Hayley Smith responded. Doctors originally believed Hayley Smith was pregnant with a baby boy. The Baker County couple began to select boy names they liked, includ-ing Nathan and Ethan. It wasnt long after when they realized their little boy would, in fact, be a little girl. Coming from a religious family, Trey Smith said he just felt like the name Faith fit his baby. I havent ever had anyone depend on me, except for work, he said. It feels good that she depends on me and I depend on her. I could have a bad day. But when I walk into the room and pick her up, it all just goes away. Hayley Smith said shes never seen her husband as happy as he is when hes holding his little girl. His tiny foot-ball, he calls her. Since there isnt much in their hometown of Sanderson, Trey Smith hopes his daughter might even-tually take up sports. Or whatever her little heart desires, he said. Daddy will back her up no matter what she decides to do. After a violent bout of morning sickness, Hayley Smith said her pregnancy went pretty smoothly. She was, however, addicted to Lucky Charms. As 5 a.m. rolled around on New Years Day, she began to experience cramps. Soon, the cramps became contractions closer and closer together. After 28 hours of labor, Faith finally came into the world. Premature, but healthy. Both of the Smiths remember their favor-ite moment so far with their only child as a snapshot from inside the Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Hayley Smith said it was the moment she first laid eyes on Faith, while Trey believes it was the moment he first held her. Faith became the first baby he has ever held in his life. The couple doesnt plan providing Faith with siblings any time soon. I want to enjoy her, enjoy this beautiful little girl for a while, Hayley Smith said. Every moment has been great, even the poopy dia-pers. 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER SUNDAY REPORT SUNDAY, JANUARY 12, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 HOW TO REACH USMain number ........(386) 752-1293 Fax number ..............752-9400Circulation ...............755-5445Online... www.lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Reporter, an affiliate of Community Newspapers Inc., is pub-lished Tuesday through Friday and Sunday at 180 E.

Around Florida By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High Schools Student Government Association members worked on feeding the local homeless population Saturday, as they partici-pated in a statewide project. The group set up in the gazebo at Olustee Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with hopes of feeding homeless residents chili and water. In addition they had bags of personal hygiene items for anyone in need. Its a homeless soup kitchen for student govern-ment and its a state project amongst the student coun-cils in the state, said Jill Hunter, the CHS Student Government advisor. The project was chosen by our state president, so each stu-dent council in the state is supposed to do something in their community. About 80 CHS students took part in the local project. The students have been working on this for about three months just planning and they put out fliers, Hunter said, noting that about 25 students helped set up for Saturdays event. The parents of several students prepared the food and donated it as part of the project. Enough chili was prepared to feed 150-200 people. Not many homeless residents stopped by the gazebo in Olustee Park during the first hour of the event but the students formed groups and circulated in the down-town area to let the public know about the project. Hunter said any food that is left over following the event will be donated to the needy. Whatever we have left over today were going to take down to the soup kitchen, she said.

Nine of the patients who died in Gainesville as a result of the flu were trans ferred to UF Health Shands Hospital from neighbor ing counties, including Columbia. According to the release from the hospi tal, 11 of the patients had not been vaccinated. Five of them were under the age of 40, which raises concerns with UF Health that this years strain is virulent for younger popu lations. Every year, I would like to see a decrease in activity, Lander said. But theres an increase in some areas and its remaining steady in our county. The local trend in North Central Florida mirrors pat terns seen by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in multiple cities across the county. I think what this does is stress the importance of getting that vaccine, he said. If you dont want to do it for yourself, do it for your family, your friends and your neigh bors... Every person we vaccinate for the flu is one less person who can transmit it. Columbia County Health Department still has doses for individuals between the ages of 18 to 65. The shot costs $20. The CDC recommends a three-step approach to fighting influenza: Get a flu vaccine at a local pharmacy or your health-care providers office. Take everyday pre ventive actions to stop the spread of germs, such as washing your hands and using hand sanitizer, and covering your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough. If you do con tract the flu, stay home. Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them.

Lauren Williams, ARNP Law enforcement offi cials agree the law is a step in the right direction, but many bemoan its sec ondary offense status. You have to see some other offense first, said Murray Smith, Public Information Officer for the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. Because its a new law, they do it that way. You couldnt just stop somebody for [tex ting-while-driving]. Authorities must make a traffic stop for some other primary offense, such as speeding or driving with a broken tail light, before citing someone with tex ting-while-driving. However, catching driv ers in the act has proven difficult for law enforce ment. Even if they were to see someone using their phone behind the wheel, certain operations, like using the phone for navigation purposes or radio broadcasts, are acceptable under the law. Theres so many dif ferent aspects that are allowed, and you have to prove they were tex ting while driving, LCPD Investigator Craig Strickland said. Unless [the officer] is right next to [the driver] and their thumbs are going like crazy, thats about the only way. If they really wanted to enforce it, theyd make it like seatbelts and move it to a primary offense. Florida previously gave secondary offense status to their 1986 seat belt law, but bumped it up to a pri mary offense in 2009. I think as more time goes by, well be able to eventually get some [cita tions]. If it was primary, then thats different, FHP Public Affairs Officer Tracy Hisler-Pace said. Its just stepping stones. Im thinking people are maybe taking heed and not texting and driving. Authorities believe the texting-while-driving stat ute will evolve with time as law enforcement and the public become accli mated to the new law. Its one of those things where everybody has a break-in period on this, Smith said. Its a worth while law, certainly worth while when distracted drivers are dangerous to public. The legislation says first-time offenders will be charged with a non-mov ing violation and $30 fine, while second-time offend ers will be charged with a moving-violation and $60 fine. However, fines vary county-by-county in Florida for traffic violations. Text and drive in Columbia County and youll receive a $114 non-moving violation fine the first time around, and a $164 moving violation fine for a second offense. Any additional court costs are not included in the pen alties. Ultimately, authorities agree texting-while-driv ing is nothing to LOL at. When youre texting and driving, nine times out of ten your eyes spend more time on your screen than ahead or around you, Strickland said. Its unsafe to you, your passengers and everyone else around you. TEXTING Continued From 1A FLU Continued From 1A in public meetings. Berry said he aims to have two separate organi zations fill the appraiser and the transaction broker positions, believing theyll receive a better, more objective appraisal. The board will hold a series of public meetings throughout the sale pro cess, which Berry believes could take anywhere from one to two years. If we sell the hospital, that would terminate our taxing authority, Berry said. There wont be any more tax on the citizens. Thats the main purpose of us selling the hospital. The hospital would then continue as a private facil ity. The sale of the hospi tal, Berry said, would go directly to two different funds: an indigent care fund, providing health care services to individu als without insurance, and an economic developing trust fund that could only be used for medical eco nomic development, such as a doctor setting up his or her own practice. Once sold, it would be up to the state legislature to dissolve LSHA. Until that point, he said the LSHA would continue to have a role in the community after the sale, but declined to comment on specifics due to the pending negotia tions. Now is the perfect time for us to do this, Berry said. Theres so much changes in the healthcare system right now. Theres a lot of consolidation and stuff going on that makes it the ideal time for it...[The healthcare system] is going to be a whole new land scape in five years. The hearing will be held at the Lake Shore Hospital Authority Administrative Building Monday at 5:15 p.m. Man indicted in stabbing of brother By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org A Columbia County grand jury indicted Anthony Richard Avallone Jr. for the Dec. 3 stabbing death of his brother, Matthew Patrick Avallone. The grand jury returned the true bill on manslaughter charges levied against Anthony Avallone, 32, on Thursday afternoon. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, the Columbia County 911 dispatch received a tele phone call on Dec. 3 in reference to a stabbing. The first caller who spoke to the dispatcher was a woman, later identified as Patty L. Avallone, who said they asked EMS to respond to 1396 SW Dekle Road. The telephone was then given to a man, later identified as Anthony Avallone, who reportedly told the 911 dispatcher that he had stabbed his brother with a knife. He told the dispatcher that his brother jumped on him and thats when he stabbed him. According to witness statements, Matthew and Anthony Avallone were involved in a heated argument that escalated into a fight when the stabbing occurred. Anthony Avallone told authorities that while he was in his bedroom Matthew came over and started yell ing at him. Anthony Avallone said they were exchanging words and he told Matthew that he had a knife and would cut him. Anthony Avallone told authorities he opened the knife and Matthew told him he would break his neck. Anthony said Matthew then charged at him and started hitting him in the back of the head. Anthony said the blade was open but he didnt remember stabbing Matthew. He said after Matthew was stabbed Matthew walked towards the front door and fell on the ground. He said he called 911 and didnt mean to kill his brother, reports said. A trial date has not been set.

I f we had believed that the death of Osama bin Laden ended the terrorist threat to world peace that had been posed by al-Qaida, developments in the Middle East have shown we were wrong. And the decision in Washington to stay out of the conflict in Syria, while welcomed by most Americans, has had troubling con-sequences, as Lebanese novelist Elias Khoury suggested in an inter-view last week. I think we are witnessing a turning point, and it could be one of the worst in all our history, Khoury told The New York Times. The West is not there, and we are in the hands of two regional powers, the Saudis and Iranians, each of which is fanatical in its own way. I dont see how they can reach any entente, any rational solution. Americans understand that as long as the Middle East remains politically and militarily volatile, the world must remain poised to cope with the threat of terrorism. But that doesnt argue for boots on the ground. Support of any kind for one side in the region will inevi-tably invite anger and perhaps acts of terrorism against the United States from the other. What is now clearly a civil war in Syria initially generated consider-able American sympathy for the rebels, who typically (and correctly) were portrayed as risking their lives to dislodge the longtime leadership of Bashar al-Assad, a dictator who is strongly supported by one branch of the nations Islamic population at the expense of the other. That portrayal of the rebels no longer is relevant. Now it isnt sim-ply a case of freedom lovers fight-ing to unseat a dictator because, on an alarming scale, their effort has been joined by divisive extremist elements linked to al-Qaida. And now there is open warfare between the original rebels and the al-Qaida jihadists. Across northern Syria last weekend there was a rebel uprising against the newcom-ers representing the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), one of the most powerful al-Qaida-related organizations operating in the area. The ISIS fighters care more about imposing their own branch (Sunni) of Islam on the Shiites in Syria and elsewhere than in the cause of the original fighters. These same extremists are also fighting in neighboring Lebanon and in Iraq, where they pose a seri-ous risk to the mostly Shiite gov-ernment elected after the end of the American-led war that doomed the regime of Saddam Hussein, a Sunni who had often brutalized Iraqs Shiites. Last week these extremists captured two cities west of Baghdad. American troops had lost 1,300 lives when they defeated insurgen-cies in these two cities, Fallujah and Ramadi. Now theyre in enemy hands. While visiting Israel Sunday, Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States is ready to help Iraq fight these enemies in every way it can, but he ruled out the return of American forces. That pre-sumably leaves American weapons as the aid he has in mind.... The worsening situation in Iraq may be instructive for the Obama administration as it contemplates the pending withdrawal of all American combat forces from Afghanistan later this year. Its not in Americas interests to have troops in the middle of every conflict in the Middle East, or to be permanently involved in open-ended wars in the Middle East, Benjamin J. Rhodes, a White House deputy national security adviser, observed the other day. Rhodes may be right, but keeping our troops at home does not guarantee peace any more than kill-ing bin Laden ended the threat of terrorism. We must remain vigilant, as uncomfortable as that may be.

All this was made possible by a 2012 constitutional amendment passed with 55 percent of the vote. The venture is intensely regulated and heavily taxed. Purchasers have to be 21 or older. They can buy no more than an ounce. They cannot consume in public. They cannot transport the drug across state lines. Although federal law still prohibits pot use, the Obama administration has said it will mostly look the other way. Its thought Colorado is a gateway state and others will follow suit. The state of Washington is set to go next year. The justifications? There are a number. One is that this countrys war on drugs has imprisoned people for minor infractions and has helped generate and sustain drug-dealing crime of a frightening, bloody reach. Another is that we Americans should have the free-dom to do what we like as long as we arent hurting others; after all, it is argued, alcohol is legal. Still another point is that the economy and government coffers will be pleasantly blessed. Our incarceration rate the highest in the world is indeed a horror, and rehab is a better answer to drug abuse than jail. But marijuana use is no longer treated a fraction as harshly as once upon a time sometimes all you get is the equivalent of a parking ticket and such powerfully punishing drugs as cocaine, heroin and meth are still illegal everywhere in this land. They and some of their cousins are surely enough to keep the criminal drug biz busy. Liberty in the pursuit of pleasure seems to appeal to a wider ideo-logical swath than freedom from too much government generally, but thats not the end of the world even if the comparison to alcohol is the end of careful thinking. Booze is much more embedded in our culture than pot, meaning its pro-hibition was a much bigger deal than marijuanas. Booze also kills something like 75,000 Americans a year through disease, violence and accidents, meaning we do not need more of that. But, its said, marijuana doesnt hurt anyone. There are arguments all over the lot on this, but yes, it does, and yes, pot businesses are going to make a mint in Colorado even as competition drives prices down and the drug is likely used to an extent never before imagined. One of the worst possible conse-quences, if increasing amounts ille-gally get in the hands of teenagers, is that their IQ development will be thwarted and their chances of psy-chosis immensely aggravated. One writer says an example of the disor-der is believing a TV is forwarding secret messages. My message is that other states should watch Colorado carefully for a number of years before experi-menting themselves with the lives of their children. Q The Tampa Tribune TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1773, the first public museum in America was organized in Charleston, S.C. In 1828, the United States and Mexico signed a Treaty of Limits defining the boundary between the two countries to be the same as the one established by an 1819 treaty between the U.S. and Spain.

Never get sick, and when you do, you just tough it out and go to work anyway? That strategy may have served you well in the past, but might not this flu season. This flu is bad news.Whats striking about the current strain is the number of people under 40 who are dying as a result. Five in North Central Florida alone.We urge you to play it safe. Get a flu shot, whether you normally do or not. As of yet theres no vaccine shortage, as in previous years, and no excuse. And should you become infected, dont try to tough it out and go to work anyway. However strong you may think you are, your co-workers arent. It is the height of selfishness to risk getting them sick as well. Our state has been hit plenty hard by this years flu, but not as hard as others thus far. Lets try to keep it that way.

There will be some lingering snow showers over northern New England. 87, Immokalee Regional Airport, FL -2, Alamosa, CO Saturday Today Saturday Today Saturday Today Saturday Today Saturday Today Saturday Today Albany NY 78/68/.00 80/62/s Albuquerque 50/28/.00 54/25/pc Anchorage 23/21/.00 18/13/pc Atlanta 64/48/2.25 56/41/s Baltimore 57/35/.65 47/30/pc Billings 44/30/.00 42/32/pc Birmingham 64/57/.69 58/43/s Bismarck 30/17/.00 39/12/pc Boise 46/39/.00 40/30/fl Boston 57/34/.08 48/34/pc Buffalo 50/39/.42 35/29/i Charleston SC 71/64/.01 64/42/s Charleston WV 61/48/.64 47/34/pc Charlotte 64/42/1.38 56/37/s Cheyenne 46/30/.00 38/25/pc Chicago 39/34/.07 43/33/pc Cincinnati 52/43/.83 47/36/pc Cleveland 51/46/.17 42/35/pc Columbia SC 45/34/.06 58/34/pc Dallas 68/39/.00 72/43/pc Daytona Beach 82/68/.00 68/52/pc Denver 35/19/.00 45/30/pc Des Moines 34/25/.00 50/25/pc Detroit 41/37/.24 38/31/pc El Paso 60/35/.00 69/37/pc Fairbanks -27/-34/.00 -26/-37/pc Greensboro 59/37/1.32 54/37/s Hartford 57/33/.73 45/25/pc Honolulu 75/66/.00 81/66/ts Houston 73/57/.01 73/60/pc Indianapolis 42/33/.07 44/35/pc Jackson MS 66/57/.35 67/47/pc Jacksonville 79/59/.00 66/43/s Kansas City 35/29/.00 56/30/pc Las Vegas 57/42/.00 63/39/pc Little Rock 57/41/.00 65/45/pc Los Angeles 70/48/.00 74/49/s Memphis 57/46/.11 63/49/pc Miami 82/73/.00 77/68/pc Minneapolis 30/24/.00 39/18/pc Mobile 71/63/.57 63/50/pc New Orleans 73/66/.52 65/53/pc New York 53/37/.31 46/35/pc Oakland 54/44/.00 58/39/pc Oklahoma City 62/37/.00 68/36/pc Omaha 43/21/.00 48/25/pc Orlando 84/69/.00 73/53/pc Philadelphia 61/35/.35 47/32/pc Phoenix 66/44/.00 72/44/pc Pittsburgh 54/44/.48 39/32/pc Portland ME 46/30/.31 44/26/fg Portland OR 57/46/.38 46/40/r Raleigh 69/44/.23 59/36/s Rapid City 45/24/.00 44/23/pc Reno 54/30/.00 47/21/pc Sacramento 52/41/.00 60/34/pc Salt Lake City 46/36/.00 33/24/sn San Antonio 60/49/.00 74/54/pc San Diego 68/50/.00 64/52/fg San Francisco 54/46/.00 56/48/pc Seattle 57/44/.59 49/45/r Spokane 46/39/.07 40/36/pc St. Louis 48/37/.02 58/39/pc Tampa 76/69/.00 72/55/pc Tucson 66/39/.00 70/37/pc Washington 55/37/.75 48/36/pc Acapulco 86/73/.00 86/73/s Amsterdam 46/41/.00 50/33/r Athens 59/44/.00 62/46/pc Auckland 71/59/.00 71/57/pc Beijing 41/8/.00 39/19/s Berlin 46/37/.00 44/37/pc Buenos Aires 77/64/.00 75/66/pc Cairo 66/50/.00 64/50/s Geneva 51/33/.00 51/32/pc Havana 84/62/.00 82/68/pc Helsinki 28/23/.00 26/17/pc Hong Kong 71/57/.00 69/60/s Kingston 86/77/.00 87/75/pc La Paz 62/37/.00 62/42/ts Lima 78/68/.00 75/69/pc London 48/37/.00 44/30/s Madrid 57/41/.00 57/35/pc Mexico City 68/46/.00 68/42/r Montreal 41/21/.00 41/32/sn Moscow 39/26/.00 35/26/r Nairobi 82/57/.00 82/55/pc Nassau 82/73/.00 82/71/pc New Delhi 64/41/.00 64/42/s Oslo 39/35/.00 35/28/sn Panama 86/75/.00 89/73/ts Paris 46/37/.00 51/32/cd Rio 100/78/.00 95/75/s Rome 53/37/.00 59/39/fg San Juan PR 84/73/.09 82/77/pc Santiago 80/66/.00 84/66/pc Seoul 33/24/.00 37/28/pc Singapore 87/77/.00 86/77/ts St. Thomas VI 84/73/.04 85/73/r Sydney 89/67/.00 86/68/s Tel Aviv 66/51/.00 64/50/pc Tokyo 44/32/.00 46/37/s Toronto 41/35/.00 41/30/r Vienna 46/28/.00 44/35/s Warsaw 42/39/.00 42/33/pc H H 45/21 Bangor 48/34 Boston 46/33 New York 48/36 Washington D.C. 56/37 Charlotte 56/41 Atlanta 68/36 City 74/44 Dallas 73/60 Houston 39/18 Minneapolis 43/33 Chicago 63/49 Memphis 47/35 Cincinnati 38/33 Detroit 72/55 Orlando 77/68 Miami Oklahoma 34/8 Falls International 58/39 Louis St. 48/25 Omaha 45/30 Denver 54/25 Albuquerque 72/44 Phoenix 42/32 Billings 40/30 Boise 46/40 Portland 49/45 Seattle 65/53 Orleans New 44/23 City Rapid 33/24 City Salt Lake 60/40 Vegas Las 72/51 Angeles Los 56/48 Francisco San 19/14 Anchorage -26/-37 Fairbanks 81/66 Honolulu -20 -15 -10 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat 76 66 41 53 65 79 78 51 36 25 30 48 62 62 Actual high Actual low Average high Average low WEATHER BY-THE-DAY Moderate 5 30 mins to burn Sunny Slight chance of rain showers Partly cloudy Mostly sunny Mostly sunny Light wind SUN 67 40 MON 72 49 TUE 68 40 WED 61 29 THU 61 34 HI LO HI LO HI LO HI LO HI LO 2014 6A ATTN: EILEEN BENNETT LAKE CITY REPORTER Runs: Sunday, December 29, 2013 Size: 6 col.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Kelvin Jonas makes a shot against Middleburg High on Tuesday. Columbia beat Middleburg 76-51. Tigers fall on road to Oakleaf in district game By BRANDON FINLEY firstname.lastname@example.org Columbia High fell to Oakleaf High in a district road contest to fall to 5-7 on the year. The Tigers were out scored in every quarter before a 28-17 fourth quar ter helped the Tigers reach striking distance. The Knights were able to hold off Columbia at the end, however, for a 78-73 win. Oakleaf pulled out to a 22-18 lead and led Columbia by 10 at the half, 39-29. The Tigers went into the fourth quarter down 16 points before making their run. We came out and strug gled early, Columbia head Columbia rallies in fourth, but Knights hold on.

Columbia knocks off Fort White, 6-0, on senior night By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com Columbia High picked up its second win of the sea son on a night when they needed it most. As the Tigers looked to honor the six seniors on this years team, Columbia knocked off Fort White High in a county clash, 6-0. Tim Bagley, Nick Jones, Braeden Lehman, Kaleb Rossignol, Ty Williams and Rogelio Arradilla-Sosa were honored at halftime of the contest. Arradilla-Sosa had the biggest night of the seniors by scoring two goals. He opened the game with a goal to give Columbia a 1-0 lead and opened the second half with another goal. Caleb Carswell gave the Tigers a 2--0 lead and Columbia was aided by two own goals from Fort White to take a 4-0 lead into the half. After Arradilla-Sosas goal to start the second half, Ty Williams capped off the night with a goal to make it 6-0. The goal was a little dif ferent for Williams as he usually plays keeper for the Tigers. The seniors played well and they played the whole game, Columbia head coach Trevor Tyler said. Fort White fought hard and showed a lot of effort. Perry (Sauls) has done a good job with them since taking over. It was good to see Ty get the last touch of the night and it was his best touch of the night. Columbia moves to 2-9-1 after the win. Fort White falls to 1-16-1. The Tigers have a packed week of play before the dis trict tournament begins on Dec. 21. Columbia travels to Vanguard High at 7:30 on Monday, Taylor County High at 7 p.m. on Wednesday and Suwannee High at 7 p.m. on Friday. Fort White closes the season at Lafayette High at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
F ort Whites all-state football players Kellen Snider, Tavaris Williams and A.J. Kluess are seniors, but next years opponents have a similar problem. All of the dozen all-state players the Indians faced on the field this season are seniors. Among district foes, only Taylor County had all-state players and there were three. Linebacker Luke Kallschmidt (No. 20) was second team, as was Daniel Wentworth (No. 16) as a punter. Wide receiver Moral Stephens (No. 3) was honorable mention. Wentworth also quarterbacked the Bulldogs and he had a good game in their loss to Fort White. He was 17 of 31 for 241 yards and two touchdowns. Stephens had three of the catches for 21 yards. A first-team all-stater that Fort White helped make the grade was wide receiver Kenny Dinkins (No. 18) of Bradford. Dinkins torched the Indians with six catches for 142 yards and touchdowns of 54 and 30 yards. He also returned a kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown. KeAris Ardley (No. 3) was second team as a utility player. Fort White kept him in check with one catch for 11 yards in the Indians win. Of the two Class 7A teams Fort White defeated, only Jerome Johnson (No. 55) of Buchholz made all-state. The defensive lineman was second team. In Class 1A Newberry produced first-teamers offensive lineman Zac Rich (No. 52) and defensive back Monte Seabrook (No. 2). Seabrook also played on offense and had five catches for 29 yards in the Indians victory and ran one time for 23 yards. Other Class 4A all-state players that Fort White went up against played for East Gadsden. Offensive lineman Derrick Kelly (No. 74) was first team. Defensive back Jajuan Perkins (No. 9) was second team and defensive lineman Geomary Smith (No. 11) was honorable mention. A second-team player on the schedule that Fort White did not get to see was Hamilton County quarterback Antefernee Smith. The opponent with the most all-state players was Dixie County, which Fort White played in the kickoff classic. Making first team for the Bears were defensive lineman Trey Simmons and defensive back Duke Dawson, with running back Kendall Copeland and offensive lineman Eli Long on second team, and utility player Shaquille Mitchem as honorable mention.

We got down 10 early and pulled it back at the end of the first quarter, but it was kind of downhill from there until the fourth quar-ter. We fought back, but we have to play the whole game like we did at the end of the first and in the fourth quarter. The Tigers were again money from the 3-point line making 13 in the contest. Tre Simmons led the bunch with five from deep and Darrell Jones connected on four 3-pointers. Jones led the team in scoring with 21 points, fol-lowed by Simmons with 19. Dilan Hall and Kelvin Jonas each had 10 points in the game. Andrew Moemeka had six points and Jordan Coppock had five. Darrell had four points in the first half, but shot the ball well late, Jefferson said. Tre kind of carried us early. The Tigers fall to 7-7 on the year, while Oakleaf improves to 9-5. The two teams will meet again this week when Columbia hosts the Knights at 7:30 on Thursday. Columbia begins the week by hosting Gainesville High at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Its a really big week, Jefferson said. One of these three teams are going to win the district. The good news is that we still have a chance. The bad news is that we will need a little help.Lady Tigers soccerColumbia High fell on the road to Santa Fe High on Thursday, 6-0, in a non-district match. The Lady Tigers trailed 2-0 at the half before giving up four goals in the second half of the loss. Santa Fe is 20-1 on the year after the win. The Lady Tigers fell 1-0 in their final regular sea-son game of the year at Suwannee High on Friday. We played great, but they scored a goal in the first minute of the game on a silly mistake, Columbia head coach Lindsay McCardle said. But we fought hard and controlled the game with possession, so I am happy with their performance. Its a bitter-sweet loss though because they played so well. The Lady Tigers end the season at 5-12. Columbia opens the District 2-4A soccer tourna-ment against Lincoln High at 7 p.m. on Monday. The games will be played at Leon High in Tallahassee.

By RICK FREEMAN AP Sports Writer NEW YORK Welcome to the Super Bowl, where demand always beats sup ply and the teams dont really matter. The NFL championship game is one of the larg est sports and entertain ment spectacles in the world. The teams arent exactly afterthoughts, but tickets are going to move quickly no matter how popular the two con tenders are. In fact, the number print ed after the dollar sign on the front of a Super Bowl ticket has about as much in common with the price paid by its holder as the point spread does with the final. So, as we near the big game on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., lets take an inside look at the ticket trade. HOW MUCH? Even on NFL.com, users in search of tickets are directed to a resell ers website, operated by Ticketmaster. On Thursday night, the cheapest ticket available was over $3,000. (The league also conducts a lottery to purchase tick ets for $500. These cannot be resold.) On Stubhub, people were willing to part with seats for a little more than $2,500, 24 days and an hour before kickoff. Needless to say, these were all in the nosebleed sections. But fans eager to lock down seats now would probably be advised to wait. What were probably going to see is over time, the closer we get to the game, the more the pric es will drop, said Smita Saran, Stubhubs senior spokeswoman. WHOS PLAYING? The teams in the game should have some bearing on the price. Large fanbases close to the New York City area think New England could cause demand and prices to rise. Three West Coast teams are still alive in the playoffs, and no mat ter how ardently supported the San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks are, being a continent away from see ing the game in person will probably thin the hordes ranks. The remaining teams in order of proxim ity to Newark Airport, just down the turnpike from the Meadowlands, are the Carolina Panthers (from Charlotte, N.C.), Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos. The halftime show is set. Thatll be Grammywinner Bruno Mars. The 28-year-old pop star isnt as venerable as some of the heavy hitters to grace the halftime stage in the past Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney have albums older than he is but he should be a bigger draw than Up With People. WHATS THE WEATHER LIKE? Regardless of what team is in the game, one more major factor could affect prices the weather forecast. If the prospect of playing out side in 40-degree weath er (the average for East Rutherford, N.J.), doesnt seem so bad, that could be because most of the United States just experi enced a polar vortex with nighttime temperatures getting down into the sin gle digits. As this is the first Super Bowl outdoors in a coldweather city, theres no data on how a cold snap affects interest in tickets, but after the polar vor tex, its probably safe to assume demand would not be strong to sit outside for four hours or longer on a cold night in northern New Jersey. WHAT ABOUT TRAFFIC? New Jersey is not known as the easiest place to drive. And that was before Gov. Chris Christies adminis tration was found to have arranged for intentional traffic jams for political ret ribution. After previously assur ing the public that his staff had nothing to do with the lane closings in September that caused major backups at the George Washington Bridge, Christie said he had to fire an aide. His news conference to address the scandal made national news three weeks before his state is on display for the world as host of the Super Bowl. That said, no governor can control New York City area traffic, but the states transportation authority will be running trains on a new line completed ahead of the stadiums 2010 open ing. An armada of buses will also be available, and organizers are discourag ing drivers the host committee website even refers to parking as th and Long. By TONY BRITT email@example.com T he Lake CityColumbia County Chamber of Commerce office opened 2014 with a facelift. The chamber office is in the process of getting a metal roof. Work on the roof began the final week of December and is expected to be completed by the end of the month. Dennille Decker, Lake City Columbia County Chamber of Commerce executive director, said the roof is being replaced because chamber employ ees noticed parts of the roof were falling in on the interior of the building. She said they also noticed one day while cleaning the windows, an area of the roof appeared to have a bubble. One of our board mem bers climbed out there and realized the roof was deteriorating underneath, she said. The chamber had two members, who are roofers, inspect the area and give a recommendation on the best solution. The recommenda tion from both of them was for us to replace the roof, Decker said. We are in a historical build ing that was built in the early 1900s its the old Dodd home and weve been here since about 1996. The discussion to replace the roof was final ized after several chamber board meetings. The roof replacement project, which is being done by Reed Roofing, is estimated at $14,619. We decided to go with a metal roof because it will last forever, Decker said. With the tradi tional shingles, it was our understanding, that it had about a 30-year lifespan, if that. The roof will be char coal in color. We just tried to pick a color that would blend in with the colors of the paint on the outside of the house, Decker said. We didnt want to get into expensive things like repainting the house. Close to two years ago the chamber replaced its front porch and updated its handicapped accessible ramp by moving it to the front of the building and making it ADA complain ant. Decker said the roof project could have waited a year or two, but there could have been more rot ting wood and potentially more issues. We feel real fortunate to have this old historical home where were housed because visitors from out of town are amazed just at the historic nature of the building, she said. With the old house comes a lot of maintenance and we have to take good care of the house or we could find ourselves in serious trouble. No other upgrades have been scheduled for the building and Decker said the primary reason the roof is being replaced now is because it emerged as a priority. The main goal of this project is for us to be good stewards of this building, Decker said, noting shes been told the City of Lake City gave the building to the chamber. The chamber board, since Ive been here, has been extremely fis cal responsible and took any improvements with a great deal of caution to make sure it was some thing we absolutely need ed. After much discussion, it was determined that in the long run we would end up spending more if we didnt fix it now com pared to later. 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter Week of January 12-18, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

Today, Dr. Angiolillos research is reducing Normans chances of another heart attack. And its another invisible connection thats helping us move medicine forward. UF Health and Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center, an innovative alliance to enhance our community. Dominick wasnt there for Normans first heart attack. But he could be what prevents the next one. Cutting calories By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press WASHINGTON Some of the nations largest food companies have cut daily calo rie counts by an average of 78 per person, a new study says, more than four times the amount the industry pledged to slash by next year. The study sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that between 2007 and 2012, the estimated total cut in food product calories from a group of 16 major food companies was in the range of 6.4 trillion. Seventy-eight calories would be about the same as an average cookie or a medi um apple, and the federal government estimates an average daily diet at around 2,000 calories. The study said the calories cut averaged out to 78 calories per day for the entire U.S. population. The 2010 pledge taken by the com panies including General Mills Inc., Campbell Soup Co., ConAgra Foods Inc., Kraft Foods Inc., Kellogg Co., Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo Inc. and Hershey Co. was to cut 1 trillion calories by 2012 and 1.5 tril lion calories by 2015. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation signed on to hold the companies account able, and that group hired researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to painstakingly count the calories in almost every single packaged item in the grocery store. To do that, the UNC researchers used the store-based scanner data of hundreds of thousands of foods, commercial databases and nutrition facts panels to calculate exactly how many calo ries the companies were selling. The researchers arent yet releasing the entire study, but they said Thursday that the companies have exceeded their own goals by a wide margin. Dr. James Marks, director of the Health Group at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, said the group is pleased with the results but the companies must sustain that reduction, as theyve pledged to do, and other food companies should follow their lead. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is a nonpartisan philanthropic and research organization that works to improve the nations health. Even though the companies that made the commitment represent most of the nations most well-known food companies, they sold only a little more than a third of all packaged foods and beverages at the beginning of the study. Missing are many off-label brands sold under the names of retailers, and its unknown whether those products have changed. It is also unclear how the reduction in calories translates into consumers diets. When the companies made the pledge in 2010, they said one way they would try and reduce calories would be to change portion sizes in an attempt to persuade consumers to eat less. The companies also said that they would develop new lowercalorie options and change existing prod ucts so they have fewer calories. Evidence of those efforts are visible on any grocery store shelf. Many products now come in lower calorie versions, are baked instead of fried, or sold in miniature as well as larger versions. Marks says he believes that companies efforts to package smaller servings 100 calorie packs of popular snacks, for example and smaller cans of sugary drinks may have contributed to the reduction in calories. He says the main contributors most likely were the publics increasing willing ness to buy healthier foods and companies responding to those consumers.

Deep freeze may have cost economy about $5 billion By STEVE KARNOWSKI Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS Hunkering down at home rather than going to work, canceling thousands of flights and repairing burst pipes from the Midwest to the Southeast has its price. By one estimate, about $5 billion. The country may be warming up from the polar vortex, but the bone-chilling cold, snow and ice that gripped much of the country affecting about 200 mil lion people brought about the biggest eco nomic disruption deliv ered by the weather since Superstorm Sandy in 2012, said Evan Gold, senior vice president at Planalytics, a business weather intelligence company in suburban Philadelphia. While the impact came nowhere close to Sandy, which caused an estimat ed $65 billion in property damage alone, the deep freezes impact came from its breadth. Theres a lot of eco nomic activity that didnt happen, Gold said. Some of that will be made up but some of it just gets lost. Still, Gold noted his $5 billion estimate pales in comparison with an annu al gross domestic prod uct of about $15 trillion working out to maybe one-seventh to one-eighth of one days production for the entire country. Its a small fraction of a percent, but its still an impact, Gold said. Major U.S. airlines, which canceled about 20,000 flights starting last Thursday, lost any where from $50 million to $100 million, said Helane Becker, an analyst with Cowen and Co. in New York. JetBlue was hit espe cially hard because 80 percent of its flights go through New York or Boston, where the car rier shut down Monday evening into Tuesday. The airline also was affected by other airport closures and new regulations limiting pilot hours. School closures took their own toll, keep ing home parents who couldnt find alterna tives for their kids. Even if those parents worked from home, they might not have been as produc tive, said Tony Madden, regional economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. People in the northern climates are used to deal ing with issues of snow and cold, Madden said. However, when you get a one-in-20-year event like this, that disrupts activi ties. The insurance indus try has yet to estimate costs, but Robert Hartwig, president of the Insurance Information Institute in New York, said insurers plan for about $1.4 billion in winter storm catastrophe losses in any given year. We certainly know there is an epidemic of frozen and burst pipes this week, Hartwig said. Damage to a Minnesota state health laboratory in St. Paul could top $1 million after the heat ing system failed and pipes leaked. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentleys home in Tuscaloosa took an esti mated $50,000 blow from a burst water pipe. RotoRooter in Minneapolis and elsewhere has been inundated with calls about burst pipes and even frozen sewer lines since the cold snap, plumbing manager Paul Teale said. Governments are meanwhile tallying costs for depleted road salt reserves, blown overtime budgets and repairs. Other impacts will be felt in about 30 days when high heating bills start coming due, Gold said, which will affect how much consumers can spend in February. But somebody always benefits, he said. On-demand cable TV and restaurant delivery services gained, as did home centers and con venience stores where people went to stock up. Online retailers benefit ed from customers with an estimated $30 billion worth of new holiday gift cards burning holes in their pockets, he said. Other beneficiaries may be farther away. Boston-based Hopper Research says the frigid temperatures caused a 52 percent spike in searches for flights to Cancun, Mexico, from people in Minneapolis and Chicago.

LIFE Sunday, January 12, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?Contact EditorRobert Bridges754firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter Chewing up CharlestonC harleston, South Carolina is one of our favorite places to visit. We have a timeshare right downtown on East Bay Street, conveniently located to everything so that when we park the car, we dont have to get back into it until its time to leave again. I also have a cousin who lives there and we try to visit often. Back when I was running, wed go every spring for the Cooper River Bridge Run. Now that was a good time. Scott and I would sometimes go by ourselves, with family or friends. When I had to quit running, we started going in December and loved how the city was decorated for the holidays. During our visits weve eaten a lot of good food at many different res-taurants, taken a horse and carriage ride; toured some of the historic homes some restored beautifully and others just preserved in their original state with peeling wallpaper and all, driven to the beaches area, and walked through the old straw markets and shops. On our last visit, just a couple of weeks ago, our goal was to get away for some R & R, before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. It felt like all we did was eat and sleep. And speaking of eat, we tried all new res-taurants on this trip Peninsula Grill and Tattooed Moose were just a cou-ple and ate some of the best food. For example, without reservations at any of our old stand-bys, I pulled up the map and just did a search for something close by. I found Burwells Stone Fire Grill and went to their website to view the menu. What I saw was appetizing so we went. When we got there the atmosphere was what I expected and it was early enough that we got a table without any problem. We ordered drinks and then I was a little disap-pointed when I looked at the menu. What I saw on line was not on this menu. So I asked the waitress about TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comThe 2013 BCS national championship had all the makings of a legendary showdown a Florida State team with 13 straight blowouts led by fresh-man prodigy Jameis Winston against Auburns Team of Destiny pulling out miraculous last minute wins against jugger-nauts like Alabama all season long. Only one problem Auburn was fresh out of miracles. Local residents were glued to the final BCS championship Monday night, taking fans on an emotional roller coaster theyll never forget. It was a great national championship game, said CHS Football Head Coach Brian Allen, who also played line-backer on the 1999 FSU nation-al championship team before a five-year NFL career. Not many games in the BCS era were as dynamic as that one. Local resident Jim Arnold, who made his football debut at FSU in 1950 (FSUs first unde-feated season) as a defensive end, also expressed his satisfac-tion with the Seminoles third championship run. Im just so proud of them, Arnold said. Its a good feeling to win the national champion-ship and all Ws. It all worked out real good. A few local Noles were lucky enough to have tickets the game, spreading the uncon-quered spirit throughout sunny Pasadena, Calif. Six of us went to stay in Vegas prior to the game, said Kyle Keen, president of the Lake City Seminole Club. The Las Vegas Seminole Club arranged for charter buses to the game. The FSU alumni association organized a tailgate party and had sold 7,000 tickets. We went there and hung out there, they had the Marching Chiefs, FSUs athletic director, President [Eric] Barron, base-ball head coach Mike Martin and the guy who plays Chief Osceola stop by. The Seminoles had their hands full throughout the night, trailing Auburn by as much as 18 points in the first half. I was thinking, what is going on, said Pat Arnold, also an FSU alum and wife to Jim Arnold. We havent seen anything like that this year. I was saying, God forgive me for praying about football. LCPD Chief and FSU grad Argatha Gilmore was worried, as well. The first half certainly was a little scary, she said. Were thinking, Oh my goodness, will Auburn walk away with this? But its not over until its over. NOLES FANS ON TOP CHARLESTON continued on 4D January so much to do between freezesT he January garden may look like its resting peacefully, especially when every-thing is frozen stiff as during Monday nights winter vortex. Believe it or not, the average January daytime tempera-ture for Columbia County is in the mid 50s. Plan ahead for your winter gardening tasks so youll be to ready to enjoy crisp air and warm sun when those normal weather days appear. If you have a cool season garden, there are a few last minute additions you can make. In some cases, you may even want to replace some plants that recently froze out. Some cool season vegeta-bles are beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, turnips, radishes and mustard. On the average, our cold-est temperatures arrive during the last week of January or the first week in February, so stay pre-pared to cover your ten-der plants with sheets and blankets for a few more weeks. Plan your spring vegetable garden now. Cuddle up by a sunny window on a frosty morning and daydream with those gar-den books and seed cata-logues. Are you going to try to grow something new or unusual? Which vegetables do you want to try this year? If you are looking for particular seed cultivars that do well in Floridas climate, try to get them ordered soon. Bring a soil sample in to the UF/IFAS Extension Office and the Master Gardeners will do a free pH test for you. Then you can prepare your garden soil, work in manure and compost, and make pH adjustments so your spring garden will be ready to go. Now is the time to be planting those deciduous fruit trees that youve been thinking about. By planting trees and land-scape plants now, you give the roots plenty of time to develop before the dry, spring months arrive. Have you noticed that the camellias are beginning to bloom? By purchasing them now from the gar-den stores, you can really see the flower color.

DEAR ABBY: We rented a car while we were on vaca-tion. Most of the newer cars have all kinds of high-tech equipment and devices -dif-ferent kinds for different models of vehicles. The problem is the instruction booklets that describe how the equipment operates are never provided with the cars. Its dangerous to try and figure out how the equip-ment operates by trial and error while starting to drive an unfamiliar vehicle. Why dont the rental agencies provide the instruction manuals, or at least a pam-phlet summarizing the pro-cedures? Surely not many people would steal them, since theyre just using the cars for a short time. Also, it would be helpful if the rental agencies would include an inex-pensive ice scraper with every car in appropriate areas of the country, so customers could clean their windshields and avoid the hazard of obstructed vision. CAR RENTER IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. DEAR CAR RENTER: What youre describing is also true with loaner cars that are offered when a vehi-cle is being serviced. I am pretty sure the reason those items are not provided is fear that they would be stolen. However, I agree that knowing how to operate the radio, heating, air-con-ditioning and street map functions on the newer cars can be confusing which is why you should ask to have the pertinent pages of the manual photocopied so you can refer to them as needed. (The technologically inclined can Google the make of car and ask How to turn on the radio, etc. because the infor-mation is available online.) DEAR ABBY: My best friend died from the flu in November. She was only 63 and had been my friend for 23 years. She died because she was stubborn and insisted to all her friends myself included that she was fine and didnt need to see a doctor or go to the emergency room. We had all threatened to come and drag her to the doctor or the ER or call 911, but because she insisted she was getting better, we took her word for it. Now were kicking ourselves for not getting her the help she obviously needed. Abby, please tell your readers that when a friend or family member is sick enough to cause this kind of concern, to ignore the person and get her (or him) to a doctor! I will miss my friend every day for the rest of my life because I can no longer call to say good morning. Her name was Abby, too, and she was the best friend Ive ever had. DEVASTATED IN TARZANA, CALIF. DEAR DEVASTATED: Im sorry for the loss of your friend. But none of you should blame yourselves for what happened to her. She made an unwise choice. It is not unusual for people who experience serious symptoms to go into a state of denial (Lets wait, It will pass, etc.). But unless your friend was experienc-ing extreme respiratory distress or an unusually high fever, she might have recovered from that virus without intervention. P.S. I cant help but wonder if your friend got her flu vaccination last fall when they started being offered. While its not 100 percent effective for every-one, it is effective in many people. I get one every year, and its worth dis-cussing with your doctor. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your ideas can lead to an interesting partnership, but before you jump in, you are best to clarify what you have to offer and are willing to do and what you expect in return. Organization and documentation will elimi-nate any miscommunication. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Say little and do a lot. Taking a proactive approach to a project you feel is worthwhile will put you in a good position and draw attention to your cause. Romance should be planned in order to avoid being accused of neglect. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Mix what you know with information you gather and you will come up with an idea that leads to greater cash flow. A service you offer or using your skills to teach others something you already mastered will change your life. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Catching up will put your mind at ease. Dont ignore friends and family; get them to pitch in and help and you will forge tight-er relationships with the people who mean the most to you. Love is highlighted. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Visit places that will clear your head and ease your stress. Getting out of the mainstream will help you relax and rethink what you want to do next. Good fortune is within reach, but you have to explore the best route to take. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Dont give in to emotional blackmail. You deserve a break and should plan to spend time doing the things you enjoy with the people you love. A no-nonsense attitude will make people realize that you have backbone. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Offering an innovative, simple and emotional slant to what you share will cap-ture your audience but also set off controversy, bring-ing about change that will set you free to follow your dreams, hopes and wishes. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Dont let a fastcash scheme tempt you. Coming up with your own means to bring in extra money will give you greater control and possibilities. If you love someone, take action. What you do will mean more than what you say. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make arrangements that are conducive to altering the way you earn your living. Elaborate on and promote what you have to offer in a resume or while networking and you will be considered for a position that interests you. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Make travel plans or sign up for a class that will help you improve your game, your professional skills or your appearance. Talks will be futile. You are best to wait until you have more evidence or input before you challenge some-one. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Your ideas are good and your ability to convince others to join in will enable you to follow through and complete your plans. Advancement is within reach and a change in your financial situation looks good. Dont limit the possibilities. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Emotional issues will arise if you or someone you are dealing with is not being honest. Rethink your strategy when helping someone. Offer sug-gestions, but dont take over and do the work or pay for someone elses mistake. ++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD CLUED IN By ALAN DERKAZARIAN / Edited by Will Shor tz No. 0105 ACROSS1The who of a Clue accusation, whose identity is hinted at by the three shaded answers in this quadrant8Most ___ (For sure)11The where of a Clue accusation, whose identity is hinted at by the three shaded answers in this quadrant15Not skilled in21What you can bring up, in a phrase22Photo lab abbr.23M*A*S*H star24Midwest capital25Georges mother on Seinfeld26Luau dish27Part of Caesars boast28Thrown out of the country29Got logged off, in a way31Textile tool33The Lion King queen34Blows ones mind37Aint right?38Southern terminus of I-3540Pyrexia41Unfrost42Old Tokyo43Go pfft44Varsity award45Early Coleco handheld game53The Palins, e.g.55Musical notation56___ bleu57Tad58Motor coach62To boot64Lay off65MGM symbol66Orbit competitor67Bloody Mary stirrer68Others, to Ovid69Make a boner70Colorful bird71Bam! man72Advance73The what of a Clue accusation, whose identity is hinted at by the three shaded answers in this quadrant79Saturnalia83Thing in doubt?90Conned93Wrestling star Lou94Opening for a dermatologist?95Running wild96Jungian complex97Bordeaux wine98Some Ivy Leaguers99Start of the accusation101Untouched?102___ girl104Firm group: Abbr.105Tenniss Petrova106Like some football teams108Fringe109___-Cat111Makeshift ballot box112Classic gaming inits.113Middle of the accusation118Expressing121Feature of a baseball shutout122Sainted archbishop of Canterbury who founded Scholasticism123Phone abbr.126Friend of Franco127What Lou Gehrig played1321939 Garland co-star133Home-body?135End of the accusation137Author Kingsley or Martin138Actor Richard139So thats ___?1401990s-2000s Volkswagenvehicle1412010 film ___ Men142Greeted the villain143Want144Director Mack of early slapstick DOWN1Chateau ___ Michelle2Hesitant sounds3Fixed4Ballpark fare5More elusive6Appeases7Coat rack8A.T.M. offering9Formally declare10Move like a butterfly11Become entwined12Tony the Twin13More anomalous14Its seal has an anchor and a moose 15Prehistoric menace16Noughts-andcrosses loser17Have a thought18Cool it!19Cub Scouts leader20Cries of pride30It may contain aspartame32Starting point?34Genial35Not so smooth, maybe36An ace is a good one39Completely, after in41Major part of a tooth44Bush who wrote Spoken From the Heart45___ to the finish46I dont care what they do47Basket fiber48Its a knockout49Ordeal50Confound51Farrell or Firth52Work, as clay54Actor William59Entreat60French article61Bering ___: Abbr.63Mr. Onassis73W.W.

I was happy because now I could try their Pulled Pork Hush Puppies. I really didnt know what to expect. I thought maybe there would be some pork mixed in with the dough of a traditional hush puppy. But when these were served, (there were about 6 since it was an appetizer) the plate was drizzled with a mustard, peppercorn BBQ sauce and they looked like doughnut holes. When I cut my fork into the first one, I was amazed because it was filled with nothing but pulled pork. They were lightly breaded and fried, not too heavy and oh the flavor . Hmmmm it was some of the best Id ever had. I told Scott that he wouldnt like them so I didnt have to share. But of course I did share. They were a real treat and something so unusual. After our dinner, we finished our drinks upstairs on their rooftop bar. It was very quaint with couch seating and heat lamps, which I needed in December. I pulled up their website while writing this column and found a poignant message. It says Burwells is The Next Generation of the Steakhouse, Burwells is an extremely local, seasonally driven estab-lishment, therefore their menu can change day by day based on what is fresh and available. My philosophy is to always ask if you dont see some-thing, because you never know what treat might be lurking behind the kitchen door. make certain your new plants are watered well during their first year, espe-cially during dry spells. Maybe youve seen the big, white crinum lil-ies blooming now, also. These are bulbs to set out now before you forget about how pretty they are. Agapanthus bulbs can be planted now, too. Dianthus, pansies, snaps and dusty miller are a few colorful plants that will tol-erate winter, especially in a protected location.

It is going to continue in 2014 and beyond as Viva Florida! The Columbia County Public Library has many books on travel to places all over the world. The Fodors guides are excel-lent and quite comprehen-sive giving you thorough listings of what to see, where to stay, and where to eat. The Library has them for the U.S., as well as Europe and South America. Lonely Planet travel guides are also very helpful and are geared a little more to travel off the beaten track. Another very popular series of travel guides are the Frommers, similar to Fodors. Who does not like a good deal? You might try The Everything Family Guide to Budget Travel: Hundreds of Fun Family Vacations to Fit Any Budget! (917.304932 MER). The Library also has many Disney World guides you can check out. If you like cruises, or think you might like to try one, check out Caribbean Cruises (917.2904 CAR). Tom and I just completed our 31st cruise the week of Thanksgiving. When we were investigating cruising twenty years ago, we found cruise guides like the one previously listed to be very helpful in selecting where we wanted to go and what cruise lines would be good fits. The Library also has travel DVDs: Travel with Kids (914.1504 TRA), Florence: Cradle of the Renaissance (914.55104 FLO), Disney Parks, Disney World and Disneyland: the Secrets and Stories and Magic Behind the Scenes (975.924 DIS), and Encounters at the End of the World (998 ENC), to name only a few. If you do not have access to a computer, stop by any of our three library locations to use one of our public comput-ers. The travel guide book publishers have websites you can visit; www.fodors.com or www.lonelyplanet.com. If you are looking for reviews of places by real travelers, there are many travel message boards or forums where you can post questions and receive nitty gritty information. Some of these include www.tripadvisor.com and www.cruisecritic.com. You can become an armchair traveler you do not need to actually leave your house to experience faraway places and people. Visit the Library and check out books, DVDs, or magazines to learn about interesting places you might like to visit someday, or places that just plain fascinate you and your imagination.

She spent the final seven years as custodian at Fort White Elementary School. Mary began work with CCSB at age 18. She expects to continue to serve the Fort White Schools as an active vol-unteer of their programs, but she looks forward to having control of her own time, at least for awhile. Principal Wanda Conner said that Mary will be greatly missed. The staff at FWES hosted a retire-ment reception for Mary, including a cake created by Jane MacManus espe-cially for Mary. Principal Wanda Conner presents a cake to Mary Fleming congratulating her on retirement after 38 years of service COURTESY PHOTOSCustodian Mary Fleming was honored with a retirement rec eption. Shown, FWES head custodian Isaih Phillips, Mary Fleming, and Marys husba nd and coworker Glen Fleming. They came back strong. Some chalked up FSUs rocky first half to a bit of hubris. We mightve come in a little overconfident, local resident Carlton Jones of Cochran Forest Products said. They keep telling you, youre the best, youre the best, and you killed everybody by 40-point mar-gins, thats got to affect you somewhat. Many fans agree one of the games pivotal moments came in the sec-ond quarter when FSU faked a punt on fourth down. I dont know if it was just a feel-ing, but I definitely knew it was com-ing, Allen said. It was at the point where you would want to run one. That, and the [punt] formation was different than how they normally ran it...My mindset was, emotions were going to kill you, but [Coach Bowden] always talked about tal-ent taking over in moments like those. But in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, FSU made a series of skillful plays that brought them back into the lead. I could hardly speak I was yelling so loud at the game, said local resident Georgia Jones, whos had season tickets to FSU games for 25 years and also attended the championship with her daughter. It was the best FSU game Ive ever had the opportunity to see. It was awesome. Great time to be a Seminole. Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, Lake Citys very own hometown hero, ran himself ragged holding back a brutal Auburn offense, but ended up becoming one of the games key playmakers, despite struggling with the flu during the game. I heard announcers talk about him and it made goosebumps come up, Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams said. It means a lot when those sports com-mentators say hes one of the best. Local FSU fans celebrated well into the night, soaking in every moment to the end of the Seminoles 14-year championship drought. I stayed up until 2 a.m. watching the after shows, Lake City Seminole Booster Board Member Norbie Ronsonet Jr. said. We were surprised from beginning to end. It was unreal. Even fans of opposing teams enjoyed the spectacle. My father graduated from Auburn, so I was a bit of an Auburn fan that night..., Mayor Stephen Witt said. But the whole game was exciting. It was just a good game.
