Chamber Ball set for Jan. 25. 1C Mixup may leave Babe Ruth with bills to pay By STEVEN RICHMOND The Tourist Development Council and the local Babe Ruth youth baseball league found themselves in the rough when it was learned two golf carts were bought outside of county purchasing policies. During a routine TDC meeting midday Wednesday, Babe Ruth (Lake City/Columbia County Youth Baseball) Treasurer Jack Muenchen requested com pensation for two golf carts, $10,000 combined, purchased for the TDC to use during tournaments at the Southside Recreation Complex. But something wasnt quite right, according to board mem ber Nick Patel. How did they purchase [the carts] without this boards approval? he asked. At a meeting of the Sports Advisory Council last November, Landscape and Parks Director Clint Pittman, Muenchen and the council discussed the need for golf carts during tourna ments at Southside. Local outdoor sporting goods store McDuffie Marine had let Southside staff borrow golf carts for occasional tourna ments in return for sponsorship banners at Southside. But as Southsides events increased in frequency over the years, staff realized it was time to purchase their own carts. Before the purchase could be made, the TDC, a public entity funded by taxpayer revenue, was required to get at least three bids in order to determine the lowest price that needed to be paid, according to county fiscal policy. However, to TDC Executive Director Harvey Campbells surprise, the carts had already been purchased without the bids or approval from the TDC board. I think I told [Pittman and Muenchen] that I was Misunderstanding leads to $10,000 golf cart purchase. DREAM MORE By AMANDA WILLIAMSON | Like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Brooke Mobley grew up with a dream clasped close to her heart. It wasnt one of equality, peace or brotherhood though her dream could bring peace, foster brotherhood and blossom in equality. Instead, she wanted to be a physician. Many hardships and many blessings later, after accomplishing that goal, she wanted to dream more. As Dr. Mobley spoke to more than 100 medical profession als, public officials and community members at a Saturday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 85th Birthday Observance, she encour aged them to do the same. Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Fort White Middle Schools Zoey Love takes a look at her project Does Temp. Tell All? after being named one of the first place winners in the junior category on Friday. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON cience fair projects from across Columbia County have been studied, the best ones selected and the awards hand ed out but already Linash Thomas will begin contemplat ing her topic for next year. Analyzing how temperature affects the evapo ration process, 13-year-old Linash earned Best in Fair for the junior division. According to her father, Shaji Thomas, Linash starts the plan ning process for her science fair projects far in advance crafting several ideas, fleshing them out and then narrowing the list down to one core project she likes the most. She spent approximately three to four months working on her Just Keep Cool project for the 2014 Science Fair, hosted by Florida Gateway College. Science is my favorite subject, Linash said. I was excited to win Best in Fair. I didnt really know who they were talking about at first because, you know, they said the winner wouldnt be able to carry the award. As Linash spoke, her tiny arms clasped the large, granite award given to the two participants who placed best overall. Provided by Florida Gateway College, the award probably weighs 15 pounds. Linash isnt a newbie to Science Fair fame. She took third place in the state competition last year, and has earned Best in Fair three times in Columbia County. Local physicians honored, inspired at MLK Jr. event. MLK Jr. festivities continue Monday By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. bravely fought for equality during a time when America seemed set in its separate, but equal ways, preaching peace in the face of tyranny and injus tice. Now, the Northeast Florida Leadership Council seeks to uphold his memory through community-wide events. The organization hopes to bring the public together on Monday, MLK Day, with a parade, a church service and festival-style outing at Annie Mattox Park. According to Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams, the events have been orga nized by Northeast Florida Leadership Council ever since Kings birthday became a national holiday 30 years ago. Its a day not only for black Americans, Williams said. Its a day for all Americans. The annual Martin Luther King Jr. parade will begin at 10 a.m. on Monday, start ing from the Department of Transportation office on South Marion Avenue and winding its way to Memorial Stadium. Local organizations, churches and schools will par ticipate in the event. Any organization that has not signed up, but wishes to participate, can simply show up Monday as the parade route begins to form at approxi mately 9 a.m. Its never too late to be a part of the MLK parade, Williams said, adding that there is no fee to join. Former Columbia County School District employees Mr. and Mrs. Hayward Lofton will be the parade marshals. Both are retired school teachers who worked for the district before segregation ended and after. Williams encourages every one to come out for the event, which should last from 45 minutes to an hour. Following the parade, a church service will be held at noon at the Mount Pisgah AME (African Methodist Episcopal) Church, 519 NE Washington St. Well have preaching and singing, Williams said. It will be church service. In addition, a festival-esque event will be held at Annie Mattox Park throughout the day. Food vendors will be on site. Children and adults will be able to participate in flag football games and basketball games being held during the celebration. 21 53 99 6 63 Sc I En C E The winning formula: 16 S County students display their skills.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Man allegedly rapes girlfriend, threatens to burn down home By STEVEN RICHMOND A Lake City man was arrested after sexually assaulting his girl friend and threatening to burn their house down, CCSO reports. A woman claiming to be the girlfriend of Christopher Travis Deese, 26, of 254 SE Rachel Way, waved down a deputy outside OfficeMax Wednesday, according to the arrest report. She told the deputy she and Deese had an argument Monday morning and began striking her with a T-shirt, the report said. According to the woman, the altercation escalated, with Deese holding her forcibly by the arms to the point of leaving bruises, the report said. Although sev eral details in the report were redacted for inves tigative purposes, CCSOs Murray Smith confirmed there was an alle gation of rape against Deese. The alleged victim said she was afraid of Deese, claiming he had threatened several times to kill her should she try to leave him, deputies reported. Deese had already been arrest ed once before on a charge of battery April 1, 2013 after alleg edly striking her with a tele Deese Glynnell and Bernice Presley stand together at their Presley EXCEL and Scholars Program/ Youth for Christ Ministry event, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 85th Birthday Observance.

2A PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Zimmerman prosecutor doesnt read the news JACKSONVILLE T he state attorney who oversaw the prosecution of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin says she doesnt read newspapers and doesnt think the public should know any details about a criminal case until it goes to a jury. Angela Corey of the Jacksonville-based 4th Circuit Court discussed her news preferences and her opinions on Floridas open-government laws dur ing an address Friday to the First Coast Tiger Bay Club. Area newspapers report that Corey declined to speak with reporters after the event. According to reports, Corey was asked about a recent New York Times article about a police investigation in St. Johns County. Corey said she had not read the article because she doesnt read any media. I dont read any news papers, she said. My people tell me what I need to know. Corey also said that media should not be allowed to report on highprofile cases because they publish details that are never heard by a jury, such as text messages in Zimmermans case that were reported by several news outlets but never pre sented as evidence. The public doesnt need to know anything about a case before it goes to trial, she said. If the public doesnt know whats happen ing, prosecutors and law enforcement are more likely to abuse their power and withhold crucial information in a case, said Barbara Petersen, president of Floridas First Amendment Foundation. The whole purpose of our public records laws is accountability, Petersen said. And its especially important to hold prosecu tors and law enforcement accountable. Christie comes for fundraisers MIAMI New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is leaving behind a political scandal back home and raising money for fellow Republicans in Florida this weekend. Christie is the headliner at a series of fundraisers to help Floridas governor, Rick Scott, and the state party. The events are giving Christie his first chance since the scandal escalated to reassure big financial donors that he remains a viable presidential con tender for 2016. The apparent political payback scheme caused massive traffic jams last fall by closing local access lanes to the George Washington Bridge, one of the worlds busiest bridges. Many Republicans have come to Christies defense and credited him with taking responsibility for the scandal. Other GOP leaders say his future will depend on whether his account of what happened proves accurate. Deputy charged with child abuse SPRING HILL A Tampa Bay-area detention deputy has been arrested for allegedly burning a child with a hairdryer. According to the Hernando County Sheriffs Office, deputies were called Friday to a Spring Hill hos pital about a 3-year-old boy with severe burn marks. The child had been in the care of Hernando County Detention Deputy Cody Marrone. Their relationship was not immediately clear. Authorities say Marrone initially told detectives that the child had injured himself with a hairdryer. The sheriffs office says Marrone later told investi gators that he had used the hairdryer to burn the boy as a form of punishment for not letting him sleep. Marrone was held on $20,000 bond on charges of aggravated child abuse and child neglect. It wasnt known whether Marrone had an attorney. Teen charged with shooting at deputy ORANGE CITY A central Florida teenager is facing an attempted murder charge after alleg edly shooting at a sheriffs deputy, striking him in his protective vest. According to the Volusia County Sheriffs Office, the Orange City 16-yearold was a suspect in a robbery at a convenience store earlier in the week. Investigators tracked the teen to his girlfriends home Friday night. Authorities say the teen responded to Deputy John Vedders commands by fir ing multiple times. Vedder released his police dog, which bit the teens hand and wrist. The teen was taken into custody and treated for his wounds. The sheriffs office says one of the bullets fired by the teen struck Vedders body armor. Vedder did not suf fer any serious injuries. WASHINGTON M ichelle Obama turned 50 on Friday and promptly showed off her AARP card. Excited to join Barack in the 50+ club today ... check out my @AARP card! the first lady told her more than 600,000 Twitter followers in a post that included a photo of her smiling and holding up the red-andwhite membership card that bears her name. President Barack Obama turned 50 in 2011. Other than the Twitter pic, the first lady spent her big day out of sight, with no public appearances after back-to-back events at the White House earlier this week. It was probably a good way to spend the birthday, laying low and resting up for a big birthday dance party the president had been plan ning for Saturday night at the White House. The president apparently was not treating his wife to dinner out on the town because the White House press office called a travel lid after he returned from signing the govern ment funding bill. That was a signal to the press corps that Obama was expected to spend the rest of Friday behind the White House gates. Ive got to get back because somebody is having a birthday today, Obama said at a nearby conference center. Ive got to make sure I pay them some attention. The White House isnt releasing any party details but word did leak out that guests have been told to come prepared to dance. Hernandez not allowed to watch team play FALL RIVER, Mass. Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez isnt allowed to watch the AFC championship game at the prison where hes awaiting trial on murder charges. Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told The Associated Press on Friday that if Hernandez wants to find out if his former teammates will be playing in the Super Bowl, hell have to overhear it from an officer or a fellow inmate. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the June shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-yearold semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandezs girlfriend. Police are also investigating whether he might have been involved in a 2012 shooting that killed two people in Boston. Winfrey, Thompson are OK with Oscar snubs LOS ANGELES Oprah Winfrey says shes already won. And Emma Thompson says shes at least relieved not to have to put on another frock and heels. Both actresses, snubbed by Oscar this year, are waxing philosophical about the situation, and looking at the bright side. Dont be annoyed, Winfrey, overlooked in the supporting actress category for Lee Daniels The Butler, said of her reaction. ... I really look at that category and look who is nominated in that category: my friend Julia (Roberts) and June (Squibb), whom I dont know, but Sally Hawkins and Jennifer (Lawrence) and Lupita (Nyongo.) I think thats fantastic. And so I havent picked up the act ing chops in 15 years. So to be able to be a part of a film that could get that kind of attention, that could earn the kind of audience respect that it has, Ive been saying all along, Ive already won. I already won. As for Thompson, passed over for best actress in Saving Mr. Banks, she noted: You just go Oh! and then you (say) Ooh, that means I can work in March instead of get ting into another frock and heels. Both actresses spoke at the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday in Santa Monica.

3A Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JANUARY 19, 2014 3A “Dr. King knew there was something he wanted to do, he knew it would be difficult but he knew it had to be done,” Mobley said. “Your first step is to dream, then gather your support, research, will and work your hardest ... Once your dream is accomplished, dream more. Make sure you leave your legacy, just like Dr. King.” Hosted by the Presley EXCEL and Scholars Program and Youth for Christ Ministry, the event also fea-tured presentations by area youth and a recognition of outstanding dignitaries in the medical field. Mobley, who specializes in nephrology and hypertension at DaVita Kidney Specialists of North Florida, was the keynote speaker for the breakfast held at the Woman’s Club. “I think that if Dr. King was here he would be smil-ing. He would be laughing, and he would be pleased at what he saw,” said Glynnell Presley. “Young people, they’re just coming on the scene. They need to learn the historical background of what transpired. They need to understand Dr. King really suffered and died in order to make things right for those yet born.” Fourth-grade honor student from Five Points Elementary School Jameria White provided the “Occasion” for the annual birthday observance. Even for her young age, she told the audience it is hard to overstate the impact King had on all races of peo-ple in the United States. “Great leaders are often remembered for events in their lives or words spo-ken that crystallized for eternity those things which they stood for,” Jameria said. “Dr. King holds a rightful place among great American leaders. The work he began is not fully finished, but we are a much better nation because of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Happy birthday, Dr. King.” Seventh-grade honor student Devon Guice of Tampa entertained the audience with a violin solo. For the rest of the event, Dr. Tony Buzzella, Shining Star Academy principal, provided the music. In addition to Mobley, the event honored Dr. Jean-Felert Cadet, Dr. Morgan Ellis, Dr. Mohammad A. Faisal, Dr. Amapola Garcia, Dr. Bobby Harrison, Dr. Aria Murphy, Dr. Ankem Ravindra and Dr. Gary Williams. “Being a physician was something I dreamed about at a very young age,” Mobley said. “This was a dream not based on famil-iarity. I knew no doctors that looked like me. I didn’t have any doctors in my family or in my immedi-ate community. It was my dream because it was in my heart.” To accomplish the task, she surrounded herself with people who were posi-tive, supportive and expe-rienced in her goals. She forced herself to study harder and work harder. In 2008, she graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and started her internship. While her dream could have ended there, she chose to set more goals. She aspires to be the best physicians she can be and help others accomplish their dreams. “...Know that dreams do come true,” she said. “I stand here before you today to prove this to you.” Her words spoke to 13year-old DeeAsia Brown, who thinks of Mobley as her role model. Through DeeAsia’s work with Bernice Presley and the Presley EXCEL and Scholars Program/Youth for Christ Ministry, she has grown in confidence. Bernice Presley, she said, really makes her students feel important. “We have so many people in the community who love the youth,” Bernice Presley said. “Their love tells the children that they can do anything they want to do, be anyone they want to be. ... Dr. King’s message was a motivation to everyone. He preached love and unity. If you have love, that’s God. That’s what I want to instill in my children — that you need love.” Third Judicial Circuit Judge Leandra Johnson gave the last word, but chose to use words by Dr. King rather than her own. “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the star-less midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality,” she quoted. “I believe that unarmed truth and uncon-ditional love will have the final word.” DREAMContinued From 1Agoing to go ahead with this and needed a memo and three quotes so I could proceed,” Campbell said. However, a day before the TDC meet-ing, Campbell received a memo and McDuffie Marine paperwork on two refurbished golf carts from Pittman’s secretary. “I was astonished to hear they already had the golf carts,” Campbell said. A reporter visited McDuffie Marine to determine how payment was made. A call to First Federal Bank of Florida revealed the check came from Lake City/Columbia County Youth Baseball. “We have used Babe Ruth baseball a lot to expe-dite matters in that they’re not required to bid stuff and certainly won’t have the red tape the county would,” Campbell said. However, Muenchen believes there was a mis-understanding. “I think when I was told to purchase them, [Campbell] said ‘go ahead and get them,’” Muenchen said, who admitted that “them” may have referred to the bids instead of the carts themselves. The TDC approved the reimbursement at its Wednesday meeting, but County Manager Dale Williams said Youth Baseball may not see 100 percent reimbursement for the $10,000. “They can’t just write them a check and say ‘here’s your money back’ because they can only reimburse them what the value would be had they complied with county purchasing policies,” Williams said Friday. “What [Campbell] has to do to get a reimbursement check cut is to show what the value would be had they complied with county purchasing policies.” Any deficit at that point would Youth Baseball’s burden to bear. “I have to go back to the Babe Ruth board and say we’re at risk,” Muenchen said. “But I don’t think we’re going to come up short.” Muenchen and Campbell both chalked the situation up to a misunderstanding. Both had difficulty remem-bering the exact details of the initial conversation. “I would say it was my fault that we purchased them,” Campbell said. “The cart got in front of the horse. I didn’t real-ize they were going to physically go and get [the carts...] I got a good group [the TDC board], and they were totally appropriate to say this wasn’t the way to do it. Now it’s my job to make sure there isn’t a reoccur-rence of this.” TDCContinued From 1Aphone, the report said. On Wednesday, the alleged victim said she decided to leave Deese and returned to their residence to gather her clothes and other items, the report said. However, Deese allegedly told her he would burn the house to the ground if she didn’t return by nightfall, CCSO said. When deputies made contact with Deese at his residence, he told them the burning-the-house-down threat was “anger talk,” assuring deputies “it was [his] house, too,” and would have no reason to act on his threats, the report said. When asked about the bruises on the woman’s arm, he said she bruises easily and was wary about being physical with her since his April arrest, according to the report. Deese was booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $27,000 bond. He faces charges of assault with intent to commit a felony, battery by touch or strike, and sexual assault with physical force. “She works hard,” Shaji Thomas said. “And she does it all herself. I carry the board and bring it here — that’s what I do. Everything else, she does.” While Linash carried her award-winning project home, Columbia High School sophmore Brandy Britt earned Best in Fair for the senior division. Her project “Color Confusion” tested the Stroop effect, which is related to the abil-ity of people to read words more quickly and automati-cally than they can name colors. For example, if a word is written in a color different from the color it actually names — the word green in red ink — then individuals may have a hard time noticing the color. Brandy hypothesized that she could lessen the Stroop effect by warping the words, allowing the new shape to distract from the word itself. She wit-nessed an approximately two second increase in the response time of her test subjects when naming the color of a warped word. “I like psychology and behavioral sciences,” Brandy said. “It’s just inter-esting to see how people think about things and why they do what they do. ... It’s funny to watch peo-ple struggle to name the colors. I’ve done it prob-ably a million times myself and I know how hard it is.” All projects were judged on creativity, scientific thought, skill, clarity and thoroughness, said Janet Sweat, Richardson Middle School teacher and science fair organizer. Approximately 150 students participated this year in the Science Fair, with Columbia High School returning after an absence from the event. The fair lasted three days, starting on Wednesday with children setting up their projects. Judges studied the projects on Thursday, and the awards were handed out Friday in the FGC Levy Performing Arts Center. “It gives you pride in your community that all these kids are participat-ing and doing a very good job on all of their projects,” Mike McKee, Executive Director of Media & Public Information at FGC. “I know they will represent Columbia County well in the regional competition. You know, the state of Florida has an emphasis on science, and seeing the quality of these projects is exciting. We’re hoping these kids will come to school at Florida Gateway College.” Other first place winners in the senior division are CHS student Corrie Yorke for her “Boiling Point Elevation” and CHS student Troy Brinkley for “Taking Flight and High-Speed Racing with Bernoulli’s Effect.” Junior first place winners are Hannah Knight (“Music and Memory”), Veronica Rosenbaum (“The Effect of B12 on marigolds”), Deneb Delos Trinos (“Solar Catchers”), Christian Chiong (“The Winglet Effect”), Zoey Love (“Does Temp Tell All?”) and Jacob Zecher (“Magnets: Hot or Cold”).

M ost of my Friday was spent showcasing a portion of Columbia County’s natural beauty to a traveling guest. We had limited time so there was one obvious choice for the tour stop: Ichetucknee Springs. You remember, it was a glorious day on Friday. Beautiful sunshine. Warmed to 60. No wind. A fantastic winter day in North Florida. My friend took his camera, breathed easy as we left the park-ing lot and walked down the sand-path approach. He stopped in his tracks as the spring head came into view. After a few quick photos, he quickly navigated the steps, moved to water’s edge and continued click-ing photos. He excitedly moved about the rocks, examining the angles and how, as he moved, the light shim-mer changed the color of the land-scape. He spotted fish and rock formations. He was blown away.I am quick to admit that every time I visit the springs or our abundant rivers, I, too, see something new. Every step into the wilds of our North Florida brings a new awakening. I see something new, feel a new connection to our area with every step. For a winter Friday, there were a lot of tourists with us on our brief visit to Ichetucknee. One couple was from the Pacific Northwest, being guided by friends who live nearby and were showcasing the widely unknown beauty of the Sunshine State. Their reactions were the same – amazed. Another group appeared to be college-aged students. All armed with cameras, they moved about with purpose, snapping photos from all angles, talking quietly among themselves in small groups. They never took their eyes off the crystal clear water. I’m restating what we’ve said in the Lake City Reporter a thousand times and I wholeheartedly believe: Ichetucknee Springs is the crown jewel of our region. It’s the spar-kling centerpiece of our ecosystem. It’s winter and traffic to the springs and river is much different than in summer. Now, we have our river back. We have it mostly undis-turbed and to ourselves to enjoy. The adjacent trails are quiet. We live in a magnificent place with many wonderful outdoor opportunities. Don’t take it for granted. Be mindful to protect it, but don’t neglect it. Canoe, kayak or take a walk in the woods. Winter is the perfect time of year to get out and reconnect with the world just outside your door.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.comBranford leads the way Ichetucknee remains majestic TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1861, Georgia became the fifth state to secede from the Union. In 1955, a presidential news conference was filmed for television for the first time, with the permission of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1970, President Richard M. Nixon nominated G. Harrold Carswell to the Supreme Court; the nomination was defeated because of controversy over Carswell’s past racial views. In 1977, President Gerald R. Ford pardoned Iva Toguri D’Aquino, an American convicted of treason for making wartime broadcasts for Japan. In 2007, Denny Doherty, a member of the 1960s folk-rock group The Mamas & the Papas, died near Toronto at age 66. Q Associated Press C ongratulations to our neigh-bors in Branford for the top-of-the-line skateboard park set to open there next Saturday. It’s still a work in progress – only Phase One is completed – but what a beauty it is already. At least one design element is unique to skate parks across the nation. In very small towns like Branford, and fairly small towns like Lake City, it’s not uncommon for youngsters to complain there’s nothing to do. There’s now one less reason to make that complaint, thanks to Branford’s Bill Procko, area business owner and skate-boarder, and the force behind the new park. Due to the hard work of Bill as well as the park’s many financial supporters, folks young and old, from throughout the region, will have a safe place to skate. They may have company as well.The park’s unique design is expected to attract visitors from well beyond the reaches of North Central Florida. Especially for the special events that are sure to come. Skateboard tourism. Who would have thought it? We’ll be following this thread with interest to see how it plays out.In DC, doubletalk persists H ere in your nation’s capital, things are not always what they seem. There is great excitement that an actual “budget” has been hammered out in Congress, averting another gov-ernment shutdown. This is the first budget since 2011. Even though it is Congress’ job to devise an annual budget, this once-in-three-years development is hailed as remark-able. Never mind that the budget permits the coal industry to keep dumping toxic waste in public streams although 300,000 West Virginians just went through days when tapwater was so poisoned it couldn’t be used for anything except flushing toi-lets. Never mind that despite the 2008 recession caused by misman-agement by big money, govern-ment financial regulators such as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission will not get the enforcement money they need. President Obama also has changed. He came into office pledg-ing to work with Congress, includ-ing Republicans, to get things done. Now he says whenever he can get away with doing something by executive action without Congress, he will. After Obama vowed that he will curtail overreaching by the National Security Agency, which has been spying on close U.S. allies and American citizens, it turns out the NSA has secretly put secret spying and cyberattack software on 100,000 computers. And never mind that the government now uses drones not just against foreign dictators and terror-ists but also for domestic surveillance. Growing marijuana may be legal in some states but in other states if you grow weed, a drone will catch you and authorities will whisk you off to jail. In this country many think work determines who you are although just about everyone wants the respect that comes with having a job. And the government taxes workers to provide for compensa-tion if they lose their jobs. But with three Americans in pursuit of every job opening, somebody is going to be left behind. Nonetheless, Congress cut off benefits to a mil-lion unemployed Americans saying they had been unemployed too long and that it must be their fault. Never mind that their families are now destitute. I have a young, intelligent relative who lost the use of his right arm after being attacked as an inno-cent bystander by two killers, one now in prison for life and the other on death row. After 27 surgeries, this college graduate has been on 40 straight job interviews without success despite great charm and an incomparable work ethic. If it is hard in this economy for able-bodied people to find jobs, it is even harder for the physically impaired. Yet many in Congress don’t seem to care why people can’t find jobs or what they are supposed to do with-out any income. Some legislators also don’t seem to worry that after more than a decade of war, the nation is exhausted, its blood and trea-sure spent. The men and women of the armed forces need a break. The budget calls for more defense spending and new weapons although mass transit and infra-structure projects (we are 25th in the world behind Barbados for fixing roads and bridges) were not funded. (The good news is that mili-tary employees get a one percent pay raise.) Without giving time for Obama’s nuclear disarmament talks with Iran to conclude, some lawmakers are demanding tougher sanctions on Iran. Some appear eager for war with Iran, much larger and even more complicated than Iraq. We’re already spending about $92 billion a year on war. But lest you are disappointed by such government shenani-gans, some amazing budgetary compromises were made. No money may be spent on the man-datory switchover from incan-descent bulbs. Federal agencies will get no more money for worker-training videos spoofing “Gilligan’s Island” or “Star Trek.” Despite attacks on U.S. embas-sies in such places as Benghazi, $224 million less is allocated to embassy security. There are many more Washington maneuverings to fol-low, if you can get past the double-talk. Ann Q Columnist Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.

TODD WILSON /Lake City Reporter Boardwalk rebuilt Construction crews work to rebuild the Blue Hole Springs boardwalk near the head spring inside Ichetucknee Springs State Park on Friday. The work to reconstruct the boardwalk should be complete within the next several weeks. By TONY BRITT A US Navy band is scheduled to perform during Olustee Battle Festival activities commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Olustee. The Navy Band Southeasts Contemporary Entertainment Ensemble, Pride, has a repertoire of hits spanning 50 years and will be featured performers dur ing the festival. Pride will perform for the Olustee Battle Festival Reenactment 150th Anniversary at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at Olustee Park. I think its a special treat for our community to have the Navy band here, said Faye Bowling Warren, BlueGrey Army Executive director. At one time we had the US Marine group here but thats been several years ago. Its just wonderful they (Navy band) are so nearby in Jacksonville and can come to our event. From all indications they are excited as well. Established in 1995, Navy Band Southeast is one of 13 official U.S. Navy bands. The band represent the Commander, Navy Region Southeast and consists of 45 highly trained professional musicians dedicated to the highest levels of musical performance. Highly versatile, the band or any of its various subgroups perform in a wide variety of musical settings, including military ceremonies, public concerts, parades and much more. Inspiring pride and patriotism through music, this incredibly popular unit performs more than 500 engagements annually throughout the Southeastern United States. The Blue-Grey Army had been attempting to secure the Navy Band as a festival performer since September. Warren said having the Navy ensemble perform will enhance to the Olustee Battle Festival experience. It adds a different flair, she said. The fact that were having the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Olustee and that has to do with armed forces is certainly a tribute to that particular event. I think it also brings a new element to our festival entertainment that we havent had in a long time. Its a not a large group, but its one that we welcome. Were just happy that theyre coming.

COURTESYLake City Middle School’s Falcons soccer team won the Fl orida Star Conference championship on Thursday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comLake City Middle School had two times the reason to celebrate after both soccer teams captured the Florida Star Conference championship in Live Oak on Thursday. The Lady Falcons started the night off right with a 3-1 win against Suwannee and the Falcons followed up with a 3-0 shutout in the second half of the doubleheader for the championships. “It was a super fly end to a great season,” Lady Falcons head coach Brian Schwartz said. “It was a 100 percent team effort from the players, coaches, fans, faculty and those awesome parents. Everyone played their part perfectly.” Morgan Hoyle began the game with a goal for the Lady Falcons and an own goal gave Lake City a 2-0 edge. Irene Camarillo capped off the night with Lake City’s other goal for the 3-1 final. Schwartz was not only proud of the girls that scored goals, but of the defense demonstrated by the Falcons in the win. “Special recognition to a beast of a keeper, Carlie Carswell, and her hardcore defense of Jessica Birchard, Allie Robinson, S.K. Lewis and Hanna Hamilton,” Schwartz said. But the Lady Falcons were also pretty good in the midfield and up front according to the head coach. “Lauren Hutchinson controlled the centerfield,” Schwartz said. “Savannah Ampara had amazing ball control and leadership. Last, but not least, our goal makers deserve a special recognition. Up and coming star Irene Carrillo and young gun Morgan Hoyle did a great job.” Schwartz said the Lady Falcons lived by one philosophy all season and it ended up in a championship. “They came to play, they played to win and they all gave 110 percent,” Schwartz said. “As their coach, I cannot be more proud of each and every one of these girls.” Schwartz also extended a special thanks for the help he had throughout the year from assistant head coach Ashtyn Vincent. The boys wouldn’t let anyone down in the second half of the doubleheader and concluded their season with a 3-0 victory against Suwannee. “Suwannee is the only team that we didn’t mercy rule this season,” Falcons head coach Jared Albury said. “They were our stiffest competition by far, so hats off to them. They brought out the best in our boys. Myself and assistant coach Kyle Roberts couldn’t be prouder of them.” Captain Trent Morrison scored in the opening minutes of the game off an assist by Ian Anders to give the Falcons a 1-0 lead against Suwannee. Morrison later returned the favor on an assist for Anderson to give the Falcons a 2-0 score at halftime. “Suwannee had decent pressure, but hard, physical play by sweeper Tyler Pierce prevented many threats,” Albury said. “Any shots on goal were stopped by keeper Caleb Strickland, who didn’t allow a goal all season.” Strickland played in nine of 13 games for the Falcons, but missed four games due to injury. He was replaced by Clayton Steinruck in those games and he only allowed one goal. Albury said it all started with the defense. “It begins with my starting five defenders,” he said. “Billy Friar, Nick Jerome, Grey Thompson, Tyler Pierce and Caleb Strickland anchor us. They even had a few games that there were no shots on goal, which is rare. Cumulative this season, we have outscored teams 78-1.” The Falcons came out of the half and played scoreless in the second half until two minutes remained in the contest. Steinruck scored the final goal of the season off an assist from Morrison. Albury gave special mention to Morrison for scoring 28 goals and dishing out 10 assists on the season.

By TONY BRITT T he fourth annual Lake City Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Ball will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds banquet hall. Dennille Decker, Lake City Columbia County Chamber of Commerce executive director, said 376 tickets were sold for the event. We sold out Friday, Jan. 10, she said. Were out of tickets now but we are taking a waiting list because sometimes things happen and peoples plans change. Decker said the Ball is where the Chambers annual report is given. Its basically where we provide our members our state of the union report, she said. An annual Chamber business meeting was held before the Chamber Ball concept was devel oped. We decided instead of holding an annual business meeting, we would make it into a fundraiser and have it as a unique and fun event, Decker said. So far since weve done it, its been really successful. Weve sold out every year. Dress for the event will be cocktail attire, and the theme for this years Chamber Ball is mas querade. The title sponsor for the event is Rountree-Moore. We dont normally have a theme, but we were trying to keep things interesting and keep people wanting to come back, so we decided to go with a masquer ade, Decker said. People dont have to wear a mask, but we just thought it would be fun.

TDC Hires New Marking Director The Columbia County Tourist Development Council will be promoting current Administrative Assistant Lori Regan to the position of Marketing Director effec tive immediately. The current Marketing Director, Paulette Lord, will soon be retiring from the TDC after 19 years of service. Mrs. Regan will shadow Ms. Lord for the next several months to insure a seamless transi tion as she assumes the marketing duties and responsibilities of the TDC. During the time Lori has been with the TDC, she has proven without a doubt to be the best choice to take over my position when I retire. stated Ms. Lord. I have every confidence Lori will continue to grow the tourism industry in Floridas Suwannee River Valley using her past marketing experience together with what she has learned here. Trade Show Season is Underway January is always the start of a very active five-month period of special events and trade shows for the Columbia County Tourist Development Council and our partners in Floridas Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group. Shows got underway with the Tampa RV Super Show at the Florida State Fairgrounds January 13-19 with attendance expected to be 50,000 60,000. The Villages Travel Expo was held January 17 with approximately 5,000 attendees. In all, we will be involved with approximately 30 shows between now and the end of May, including nearly a dozen military base tourism shows. Southside Recreation Complex Taking Shape Significant progress continues to be made in improvements to the Southside Recreation Complex. In the past 45 days construction has been completed on the three new rest room/concession buildings at the complex. The new electronic message center on the Bascom Norris Bypass has been installed and is operational, shade structures have been installed at most of the fields and reroof ing of several existing buildings is ongoing. Approximately 20 baseball and softball tour naments have already been booked for the first half of 2014. The new Musco Lighting is scheduled to be delivered on February 10 for installation at the eight-field girls softball complex. In addition, improvements are being made to the lighting at the five-field soccer complex that should alleviate problems we have had with breakers and power outages at the facility. Gov. Scott Seeks Record Funding for VISIT FLORIDA Florida Governor Rick Scott announced this week that he will be requesting a record $100 million for tourism promotion activi ties for VISIT FLORIDA in the upcoming 2014-15 budget year, which begins on July 1. Last year, we secured $63 million for VISIT FLORIDA and we made record gains in tour ism, Governor Scott said. We are on track for another record year, and we hope to build on this incredible momentum and make the Sunshine State the number one travel destina tion in the world. Because every 85 visitors to our state supports one Florida job, a grow ing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy. Tourism Day Upcoming in Florida Legislature March 11-12 is the opportunity for the tourism industry to speak with legislators about opportunities to increase employ ment within Florida through destination marketing. The event is co-sponsored by the Florida Association of Destination Marketing Organizations (FADMO), the Florida Association of Recreational Vehicles, Florida Attractions Association, Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association and VISIT Florida. The two-day event includes a FADMO Board of Directors meeting and evening event with Governor Scott, briefings by the partnership of Floridas Tourism Industry, a networking luncheon, organized group visits with state lawmakers at the Capitol and a Tourism Day Street Party and V.I.P Reception. For addi tional information about Tourism Day activi ties call 386-758-1312.

Olustee Battle Festival is Right Around the Corner February 16 will mark the 150th anniversa ry of the Olustee Battle, originally fought on February 20, 1864. According to Florida State Park personnel, other reenactments around the country have seen 50 percent increases in attendance when commemorating their 150th anniversary and park personnel are expect ing a similar influx. In addition, Columbia High School will be hosting some 1,500 high school juniors and seniors that same weekend of February 14-16. The students are here for a leadership conference and specifically booked that weekend because of the Olustee Battle Festival and Re-enactment. As usual, shuttle buses will operate from the Lake City Airport and Baker Correctional Institute. The parade will be held on Saturday morning and there will be free kids shows both Friday and Saturday. Annual Media Mission Teena Peavey of Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park accompanied TDC staff on our annual media mission to Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, Valdosta, Thomasville, Tallahassee, Perry and Madison to visit news papers and television stations at locales within 100 miles of Floridas Suwannee River Valley to distribute press kits about Olustee and the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park festivals. We had 29 appointments over the course of three days and will be sending re-enactors to various television stations over the next four weeks for on-air interviews to promote the Olustee event. Posters and local radio spots are currently being prepared and a spon sor reception will be hosted at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center on Tuesday, 11. A special thank you to the many hotels, restaurants, area businesses and individuals who give so generously to allow the festival and re-enact ment to grow each year. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JANUARY 19-25, 2014 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Harvey Campbell is the executive director of the Columbia County Tourist Development Council.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! (3) Buying more house than you can afford Sure, a bigger home may be more appealing. But will each mortgage payment be a struggle? Remember that life can throw some wrenches our way. Consider getting preapproved for a mortgage before shopping and focusing on what you can afford. Live below your means, and youll be able to sock away money for retirement, too. (4) Being too fussy in your home-selection process Dont rule out various types of homes without checking them out and truly considering them. Dont let an outdated bathroom, shag rug or paint color put you off, as those can be changed. A homes location does matter, though, as does its layout and room sizes. (5) Avoiding real estate agents Yes, you might save a few thousand dollars by going it alone but a skilled agent can steer you toward the best buys and might be able to get you a better price. Good agents can be well worth their cost. Occasional financial mistakes are inevitable, but armed with a sound perspective, you can reduce them. A Shiny Portfolio Candidate Stock in U.S. aluminum giant Alcoa (NYSE: AA) gained 24 percent in 2013, and the stock has more room to run. (That 24 percent actually underperformed the S&P 500, which gained about 32 percent in 2013.) Aluminum producers have suffered lately from low aluminum prices, but there are reasons to be optimistic about Alcoas future. Our global economic slowdown did depress demand, but it also created a production deficit that should widen over the coming years. The rebounding auto industry also bodes well for Alcoa. Meanwhile, Alcoa is branching out into specialty markets that offer higher profit margins and should drive future earnings. Alcoa is grabbing opportunities such as producing lightweight alloys for airplanes, and it recently snagged a $110 million contract from Airbus. Its also looking at the housing industry, where new window products can boost energy efficiency. Alcoas value-add businesses now account for 57 percent of total revenues and 79 percent of after-tax operating profits. Its looking to add more than $2 billion in new revenues to its business, though a good part of its plan comes from firming prices in the marketplace. With a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio well below its five-year average and a 1.2 percent dividend yield, Alcoa seems likely to reward long-term shareholders. The M ot l ey Foo l To Educate, Amuse & Enrich Loss Not Stopped My dumbest investment was buying TTM Technologies without a stop-loss order on it. I ended up down 59 percent. B.B., online The Fool Responds: TTM Technologies is a top maker of printed circuit boards, and it has seen its stock surge and plunge over the past year. Its fans like its diverse customer base and how it offers customers rapid one-stop manufacturing. Doubters dont like its debt load or cyclical volatility. It can make sense to place stoploss orders on stocks, which will trigger an automatic sale if the stock falls by a set percentage. While a stop-loss order can prevent a big loss, it can also prevent a big gain, kicking you out of a solid stock just because it had a temporary hiccup. (Though remember, you can always buy back into the stock later.) These orders can be handy if youre heading out on a long vacation and wont be checking up on your holdings. With a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 8, well below its five-year average of 33, the stock seems appealingly valued. (The Motley Fools newsletters have recommended TTM Technologies.)

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Mutual Fund Mysteries Q How can I know exactly which stocks my mutual fund has invested in? G.C., Warsaw, Ind. A Funds dont reveal what they buy and sell each day, but they do generally publish monthly or quarterly lists of their holdings. Youll find these reports on the fund companys website. You can also click over to to look up all kinds of information on various funds. Remember, though, that while a fund may have many shares of a company as of the end of last quarter, it might have sold off most of them by the time youre reading the quarterly report. Also, some fund managers engage in window dressing, loading their funds near the end of a quarter with hot stocks that have soared recently, so that theyll look smart. *** Q Do I have to buy 100 shares at a time of any stock? B.F., Watertown, Wis. A Most brokerages dont restrict how many shares of stock you can buy. You can buy 13, or 72, or even just one share. Pay attention to what percentage of your investment is going to commissions, though. If youre buying 10 shares of a $40 stock for $400, but are paying a $25 commission to your broker, then that represents more than 6 percent of your investment, which is too costly. (25 divided by 400 is 0.0625, or 6.25 percent.) Aim to pay 2 percent or less in commissions. If you buy $1,250 of stock in a company and pay a $25 commission, thats just 2 percent. Many brokerages these days charge commissions of $10 or lower per trade. With a $400 investment, an $8 commission would be just 2 percent. Learn more at Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us Avoid These HomeBuying Mistakes For many of us, our home is the biggest asset well ever own. Most of us dont know very much about home-buying, though, and that can hurt us. Here are a few blunders to avoid: (1) Thinking of your home as a guaranteed good investment Buy it because you like it and need a place to live, but know that real estate markets can be fickle, especially in the short run. According to Yale economist and recent Nobel Prize-winner Robert Shiller, between 1890 to 1990, home prices adjusted for inflation were virtually unchanged. In general, homes are not the best path to wealth. (2) Focusing on the cost of the home more than the cost of the loan Mortgages are huge purchases of money and their terms can vary widely. Be smart about which kind of loan serves you best (fixed-rate or adjustable-rate, 15 or 30 years, etc.), and seek low rates and fees. 2014 T HE M OTLEY F OOL /D IST BY U NIVERSAL U CLICK 1/16 Foreman is the outgoing president, while this years incoming president is John Kuykendall.

From staff reports The law firm of McRae & McRae is pleased to announce that Kevin A. McNeill, Esq. has joined the firm as a partner. The name of the firm will now be McRae & McNeill. Im extremely excited about this opportunity to come to Lake City. I heard yall play good high school football up here and I love good football, McNeill said. McNeill formerly prac ticed law in Gainesville with the law firm of Dell Graham, P.A. for more than nine years. For a long time, Ive want ed to get to a smaller com munity where lawyers can have genuine relationships with the people they repre sent. Lake City fits that to a tee, he said. McNeill was raised in Port Charlotte. He moved to Gainesville where he attend ed and graduated from the University of Florida. He attended law school at the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University and worked as an attorney in Fort Lauderdale for two years with the law firm of Conrad & Scherer, LLP, before working in Gainesville. When asked if he will miss anything about work ing in Fort Lauderdale and Gainesville, he answered, Nothing except for the peo ple I worked with. When I think of the perfect life as a lawyer, its not in some 10story building in a city where it takes 30 minutes to drive five miles. I think about peo ple knowing me by my first name. I think about being someone that people who are hurt or having a hard time can turn to for help. McNeill is married to Kimberly Woodham McNeill. They have three children: Julian, who cur rently attends the University of Florida; Jordan, who is in her first year of high school; and Jett, who is in his first year of middle school. McNeill is a member of the Board of Directors of Three Rivers Legal Services. I think that the work I do with the Bar complements my work as an attorney, he said. For me, the bottom line is that I want to help others because I believe in old-fashioned lawyers lawyers that were a part of the community and that made the community better. So reaching out to promote inclusion, or helping young lawyers get involved in lead ership roles, or doing what I can to protect legal aid for those who cannot neces sarily afford an attorney is important to me. 4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JANUARY 19-25, 2014 4CBIZ NOW LEASING Lake Citys Premier Apartment Complex 2 BR, 1, 1 1 / 2 or 2 BA, Free 200 Dish Network Channels, Gated Community, Pool, with W/D hookups, tankless water heater, energy ecient appliances Starting At $599 mo.

LIFE Sunday, January 19, 2014 Section D Story ideas?Contact EditorRobert Lake City Reporter1DLIFEBy AMANDA As last year’s graduating Columbia High School senior class left Tiger Stadium with diplomas in hand, Holly Wheeler’s dream had already started. During her valedictorian speech, she borrowed Henry David Thoreau’s words to encourage stu-dents to go confidently in the direc-tion of their dreams. But what many audience members might not have realized was how much work she had already done toward accomplish-ing her life goals. Her hard work earned her the title of Columbia County Academic Top Scholar for the 2012-13, an honor presented to one student in a school district each year. Wheeler was hon-ored to receive the award. “I decided when I was about 14 that I wanted to be a dentist like my mom,” she said. “When she gives someone a new set of dentures, it completely transforms their smile. I love that, and I want to be able to help people in that way.” For Wheeler’s whole life, she has received straight A’s in school. In addition to good grades, she joined Future Health Professionals (HOSA) and participated in the Finance Program at Columbia High School. Before graduating high school, Wheeler had already earned her AA from Florida Gateway College and acquired her Certified Nursing Assistant license. She now attends the University of North Florida full-time, majoring in Biology for Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Leadership. When she gets the chance, Wheeler shadows her mother, Lorrie Wheeler, at The Oakhill Dental Group. “Knowing what I want to do has helped me in school,” Wheeler said. “I’m at UNF now, and I know exactly what I need to take. ... I think, over-all, dentistry is a great career. My mom needs someone to buy her practice when she retires, so I think I want to do that.” Wheeler also worked at the Tiger Bank when she was in high school, which led to a part-time job as a sales associate at First Federal Bank of Florida. She just celebrated her third anniversary with the company. “They are awesome to me,” she added. “If I need off for school, they let me off. They just do so much for me.” As a high school student, Wheeler took dual-enrollment classes at night or online so that she could continue to work at First Federal during the day. By her junior and senior years, she was only taking two courses on the CHS campus — the health and finance classes. “I think my parents want to see me succeed in whatever I do,” Wheeler said. “I want them to be proud of me. ... My mom has never pushed me in any direction I didn’t want to go. I want to be like them. I admire both of them so much.” Wheeler is the oldest of four children, and knows that she has set high expectations for her younger siblings. However, she said all three of them do just as well in school as their older sister. “She’s one of those kids who you can’t have any higher expectations for because she already has such high expectations for herself,” Lorrie Wheeler said. “I take it as such a huge compliment when people com-pare me to her.” According to Lorrie Wheeler, her xceeding xpectations AMANDA WILLIAMSON/ Lake City Reporter “God has blessed me with an amazing lie, and I am most thankful for my relationship with Him,” Holly Wheeler said, pictured above at he r place of employment, First Federal Bank of Florida. “My family, school and work are preparing me for what’s to come, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for m y future.”Criteria for the Academic Top Scholar AwardThe Florida Department of Education One Florida Academic Scholar (FAS) award recipient in each district (including public and private high schools) will be designated the ATS award recipient. The ATS recipient will receive a cost per credit hour award (established by the Florida Legislature in the General Appropria-tions Act) in addition to the Florida Academic Scholars award. To be designated an Academic Top Scholar, a student must:Q Meet the eligibility requirements for an initial Florida Academic Scholar award.Q Have received funding at an eligible Florida postsecondary institution during the fall term of the academic year following high school graduation.Q Be the highest ranked FAS award recipient in the county where the student last attended high school. For this determination, FAS award re-cipients will be ranked based on the product of their Bright Futures’ grade point average and combined SAT score, or equivalent ACT score. W e hope that you all had wonderful holidays, the decorations are down and put away and that you have good luck keeping those New Year’s resolutions. You may have had ham during the holi-days but you may be in the mood again like Genie was. She cooked a ham and a turkey for Christmas dinner for 13 people and one sweet dog. When the crowd had gone with packages of leftovers, she decided to make a ham sandwich only to discover there wasn’t any leftover ham. So, she had company this past weekend and decided to cook another ham so she could have plenty of leftover ham for sandwiches, seasoning and soup making. Her favorite way to make ham is so simple. Ham with CokeQ cup brown sugar Q 2 Tbs. yellow mustard Q 1 can of Coca Cola (can be diet)Q Ham Directions:Thoroughly combine brown sugar and mus-tard moistened with just enough coke to make a smooth paste, reserv-ing remaining coke. Rub entire ham with mixture. Place ham in crock pot and add remaining coke. Cover and cook on high setting for one hour, then turn to low setting for 6-7 hours if ham weighs 3 to 4 lbs. and 8 – 10 hours if ham weighs 5-plus lbs. To accompany ham you can’t go wrong with this pineapple casserole which is so easy and so delicious.Pineapple CasseroleQ 3 lg. cans crushed pineapple, completely drainedQ cup of sugar Q 1 cups shredded cheddar cheeseQ 2 Tbs. self-rising flour Q 2 cups crushed cheddar crackers e.g. cheese-its or gold fish Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 pan with non-stick cook-ing oil. Mix sugar with the shredded cheese, add flour and toss with the cheddar cheese mixture. Add drained pineapple to the mixture, mix and pour into prepared pan. You might want to taste this before you put in the pan to make sure it is sweet enough. You can add up to a cup of sugar if need-ed but start small. Top with crushed cheddar cheese crackers (we think gold fish crackers are the best). Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Our last column included our recipe for corn and sausage Hammin’ it up after holidays TASTE BUDDIES Genie Norman and Mary Kay TASTE continued on 4D GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@ufl.eduDiscoverthe beauty of mossM any of us had out-of-state visitors over the holidays; friends and fam-ily who were fascinated with Columbia County and ‘real’ Florida. Many residents are new to the area, also, and they are discovering the many charms of the county on a daily basis. Even if your lifelong existence has been in Columbia County, you can’t be immune to occasionally being struck with the sudden aware-ness of… Wide skies and beautiful purple, pink and orange sunsets. Waves of colorful wildflowers flowing along fields and roadways. Gracefully-moving shadows of mother and calf mana-tees in a warm, spring-fed river. Scenic rolling pastures scattered with contentedly grazing Charolais cattle. The feel and smell of the air after rain on a warm, January evening. I love discovering new places and new things. It is also enjoyable redis-covering that which is already familiar, but in a different way. One such place that deserves visiting over and over again is the Ichetucknee Springs State Park near Fort White. My family and I spent New Year’s morning at the park on a nature hike led by Ranger Sam Cole. You’ll always learn something new about our native plants when you attend one of Ranger Sam’s events. View his upcom-ing Ichetucknee park tours at Magnificent spreading oaks draped in Spanish moss are just a part of Florida’s natural landscape. But to new-comers and visitors, the combination is a fascinat-ing part of the scenery. BEAUTY continued on 4D E Local couple’s grandson breaking ground in chemistryFrom staff reportsBOILING SPRINGS, N.C. — Gardner-Webb University senior William “Will” Payne never expected that a summer intern-ship research project would result in an opportunity to present his findings to industry professionals, scientists, professors and students at the Southeast Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society. Yet, Payne’s research was among only 50 submissions chosen for oral presentation during the con-ference, which was held recently in Atlanta. “The research I presented was conducted in a summer internship in conjunction with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation,” Payne said. “I gained real lab experience through the program, in a graduate school research setting.” Payne is the grandson of Jim and Lena Hamilton, longtime residents of Lake City. He is the son of Dr. Albert Payne and Sandy Hamilton Payne — a graduate of Lake City Community College. The family resides in Pendleton, Ind. Set to graduate in May with a double major in Chemistry and Computer Science, Payne arrived at Gardner-Webb having earned an athletic scholarship and then spent three years on the University’s swim team. He decided to focus on his studies and professional development during his senior year. Last sum-mer, he began working to design a nanoparticle that can remove organic pollutants common in pub-lic water sources and runoff. “The title of my presentation was ‘Polymer Functionalization of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube for Nano-Resin Water Purification,’” Payne said. “At low concentrations, certain water pollutants are very difficult to remove. The particle I made was able to remove certain organic mol-ecules from water successfully.” Undergraduate students were eligible to present their findings at the conference as long as they had conducted research and written a paper, and selection was based on originality of research and results. “Most students who present come from larger universities with deeper research budgets,” Payne said. “There were many well-quali-fied undergraduate students, pro-fessors and professionals of all types at the event, and I really enjoyed the experience. It was a great step forward in my profes-sional development and prepara-tion for grad school.” With his eye on a career in biomedical research, Payne is now looking into his options for continu-ing his education. “I’m in the pro-cess of applying to graduate school right now, and plan to pursue a PhD in Biomedical Engineering,” he said. “Presenting at this confer-ence was my first time to share my findings in such a setting. I plan on continuing research through-out my career, and presenting will be a large part of that, so this was a great starting point to continue to develop my skills and experi-ences.” COURTESYWill Payne is the grandson of Lake City residents Jim and Lena Hamilton. He presented his chemistry research findings at the Southeast Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Atlanta. WHEELER continued on 4D

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “George,” and I have been married for 13 years. Last night he dropped a bombshell. He told me that while he loves me, he isn’t happy. He assured me he has no inclination to divorce me, but he pretty much laid the entire reason for his unhappiness at my feet. I don’t handle people well. I love George and our son, but I am most relaxed and comfortable when I’m by myself. I don’t neglect them. We do lots of stuff outside the house as a fam-ily. I have no close friends, and that’s how I prefer it. George’s complaint is that I keep him from hav-ing friends. I have never tried to stop him. In fact, I have encouraged him to cultivate friendships and hang out with “the guys,” join groups, etc. He says he can’t do that and leave me at home. I wouldn’t mind his going out, but it’s nerve-racking for me to go. Abby, in 13 years I don’t think I have ever looked George or my son in the eye. It’s not something I’m comfortable with. My husband knew how I was when he married me. What can I do? — OKLAHOMA LONER DEAR LONER: You need to find out why you are unable to look even the people closest to you in the eye. Eye contact is an important part of commu-nication, and that you are unable to do it even with your child is of concern to me. There may be a psy-chological or neurological reason for it. While it’s fine for you to encourage your husband to socialize without you, it’s understandable that he would feel uncomfortable doing it all the time. He isn’t a bachelor. Couples usually socialize together, and the women often initi-ate the arranging. If the root of your problem is a social anxiety disor-der, there is help available for it. Your doctor may be able to refer you to a spe-cialist. For the sake of your marriage and your family, please don’t put it off. DEAR ABBY: I’m thinking about marrying my longtime boyfriend, but I’m hesitant because he wants me to change my last name. I want to keep my maiden name as my mother did. Most of the women I look up to in my life kept their names. My boyfriend says my wanting to keep my name tells him I am not commit-ted. He says he’d be really hurt if I did it. I feel that retaining my name is the ultimate in female empow-erment. The tradition of women changing their last name goes back to when we were treated as proper-ty and not educated. What do you think I should do? — FEMALE FIRST, WIFE SECOND DEAR FEMALE FIRST: Your boyfriend appears to be very tradi-tional in his thinking. Stop for a moment and ask yourself what that would mean for your future if you marry him. Would he be willing to compromise if you offer to hyphenate your name with his? If he isn’t, and you feel giving up your name would make you feel like chattel, then perhaps you should look for a man whose beliefs are closer to your own. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21April 19): Prepare to follow through. The more proof and skills you have, the more clout you will obtain and the further you will go. Don’t allow anyone to alter your course or push you aside. Believe in yourself. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Refrain from saying too much. It’s your actions that will count, and although not everyone will like what you choose to do, it will map out your course and show your determination to proceed to the finish line. Love is high-lighted. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Emotional manipulation is apparent. Whether it’s you doing the manipulating or being manipulated, you must put a stop to it before some-one gets hurt. Make changes that benefit both you and those around you. Focus on what’s proper. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Step back and revisit some of the ideas you have had in the past. With a couple of adjustments, you can turn an old project into an innovative and prosperous pastime. An emotional issue can be resolved with truth and promises. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Start the ball rolling. All those creative ideas you’ve been harboring can be revis-ited and the best ones put into play. Domestic changes will help improve your life but are best done with great thought, legal assistance or other expertise. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Step up the pace. Enjoy challenging activities that motivate you to do your best. Love is on the rise and spending time with someone special will lead to changes. Don’t let anyone convince you to do something you don’t want to do. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will relate better to outsiders than to the people you live with. Put your feel-ers out and get opinions regarding some of the situ-ations you face and the con-cerns you have. Good advice will come from an unusual source. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Form an agreement with someone who can contribute to your goals. An unusual partnership looks good, but first come to terms with who will be responsible for what. Someone or some-thing you have connected to in the past will offer an opportunity. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Pending matters must be looked at again and new considerations should be made. Self-decep-tion due to an emotional matter will lead you astray. Get grounded and ask some-one you trust for an opinion. Honesty will be essential. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Fine-tuning a deal or coming into cash or a good deal is apparent. Aggressive action will bring about the change you desire and that you feel will help broaden your horizons and send you on a prosperous journey. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Take heed of what’s offered intellectually, as well as physically and financially. You stand to get ahead if you are willing to make changes to the way you do things. A new posi-tion will help you change a negative situation. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Look at your relationships and reassess who is in your best interest and who is not. It’s time to weed out any negative influ-ences to lead the way to a better and more prosperous future. Replace the old with the new. +++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD IT’S ONLY “A” GAME By ANDREW CHAIKIN / Edited by Will Shortz No. 0112 ACROSS1Last name in Scotch6Stream10Bloke14Like blokes18Napoleon, e.g., twice19Steakhouse order20Test subject22Grand-slam drama that stars Bacall’s man24Half an Xmas “Halls” chant251976 horror hit, with “The”26Point value of an A in Scrabble27Little to no29Heavily favored30All-inclusive32Beat poet Cassady and others33Captain Hook’s right hand3469-Across, e.g.37Scrams38Astral saga that has a Darth part42Cutting edge43Gulager of TV’s “The Virginian”44French Oscar46Bit of Google programming47Staple of a waiting room48Work on the roof, say50“Movin’ ___” (TV theme song)52One of die Planeten53Kitty, e.g.54Count ___55“___ Anything” (“Oliver!” song)56“The Witches” writer57King Arthur of tennis59Kris ___ (music duo)61Like classical poetry63Fab “backwardgram” la “Sam, aha!

By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterAt first glance, Rum 138 looks like any of a number of other businesses sup-porting water activities in southern Columbia County. A sign outside advertises canoe and kayak rentals, along with snacks and drinks – and an art gallery? The art gallery isn’t the only one of the surprises Rum 138 has to offer, but it’s the most obvious one. On stepping inside, one is immediately struck by the colorful works of art displayed along the walls and on desks and stands. There are paintings, photographs, ceramics, carvings and beaded jew-elry, all centered around the theme of water and especially on the life and beauty of the nearby Santa Fe River and its associated springs. All are available for viewing or purchase. “We have work from about 30 artists here,” says Rum 138 co-owner Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson. “Most of them are locally based, but some have statewide or even national reputations. For instance, John Moran’s photographs were recently featured in the ‘Springs Eternal’ exhib-it at the Florida Museum of Natural History. There’s also Barbara Knutson; she has a stu-dio right in this area, but she’s a nationally known ceramicist whose work has appeared in textbooks.” An artist in her own right – she paints and also creates the hand-dyed T-shirts sold at the store – Jipson becomes animated when discussing the natural beauty that her art celebrates. “Most people think only of the Ichetucknee when you say ‘river’ in Columbia County,” she says. “They don’t realize that the Santa Fe is also a major system here. In fact, it’s Columbia County’s southern border (separating Columbia from Alachua and Gilchrist counties) and is legally owned by the county. It’s part of Rum Island, the county’s only free park that includes a spring anyone can swim in. And its health affects all of us.” Given her passion for the river, it should come as no surprise that Jipson is the president of Our Santa Fe River, Inc. (, a non-profit corporation dedicated to promoting awareness and preservation of the waters and lands of the Santa Fe River water-shed. Meetings are held at 6:30 pm on the fourth Wednesday of every month at Rum 138, which also makes its meeting room available free of charge to other area non-profits and civic groups. “Part of what we do here is to serve as an information center,” said Doug Jipson, Merrillee’s husband and business partner. “We stock bro-chures for area busi-nesses related to the river and for non-profits and public services related to maintaining the health of the Santa Fe watershed. When someone comes here to canoe or kayak on the river, to visit the art gallery, or to have Merrillee style their hair (she is a licensed cosme-tologist and has a small hair salon on the prem-ises), we want that person to have the opportunity to go away better educated about the Santa Fe River.” Doug Jipson estimates that Rum 138 currently receives 10 to 20 visi-tors daily, divided evenly between local residents and tourists. “Word of mouth is our best adver-tising,” he said with a grin. “It sometimes works in roundabout ways. Last week we had a group from Marietta, Georgia come down here and they invited friends from Lake City to come along. The funny thing was that their friends had never heard of us even though they live less than 30 miles away.” The Jipsons are both dedicated to their com-munity and to living in an environmentally friendly way, a commitment expressed in their devel-opment of Rum 138. “This used to be an old convenience shop and a butcher shop, but it had been abandoned for a while before we bought it in June of 2012,” Merrillee Jipson said. “It was pretty much gutted inside. We rebuilt it with efficiency in mind and used recycled materials where we could.” Today, the neat, brightly-painted building at the corner of County Road 138 and Rum Island Road not only houses Rum 138 but also holds Doug Jipson’s Digitel Video, which pro-duces advertising and mar-keting videos for the Web and other media outlets. After 11 years in Columbia County, the Jipsons are an established part of the Rum Island community. “We love it here,” Merrillee Jipson said. “But there’s so much more we’d like to see done. This area had a bad reputation for a while for people coming out here and trashing the roads and the park. I think it’s getting better as people become more aware of what we have here. And that’s really what we’re about at Rum 138 – making people aware of the river and what it means to all of us.” 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JANUARY 19, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-04244DLIFE soup.

These bold trees with mass-es of gray-green moss are such beautiful exclamations in the winter landscape. There are many misconcep-tions about Spanish moss because it looks and grows so much differently than other plants. Spanish moss is not a moss or a tree parasite; it has no roots and it isn’t even Spanish. This plant is an epiphyte, which means it grows on another plant only for support, and it pro-duces its own food. Water and nutrients from the air are obtained by absorp-tion through its leaves and stems. Spanish moss needs lots of light, so trees with filtered canopies, like live oaks, make perfect homes. Some people have the misconception that Spanish moss kills their trees. Sick and weak trees with thinning canopies provide sunny homes. The declining tree comes first, and then the moss can grow. Another misconception is that wet moss is heavy and breaks limbs. The reality is that the branch was weak and would have broken anyway. For more research based informa-tion, read the UF/IFAS document If you have questions about Spanish moss, veg-etable gardens, pruning or other gardening topics, call the Master gardeners at 752-5384 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You can also visit them at the Fort White public library on Wednesday afternoons. The first step towards pre-paring a spring garden is getting your free soil pH test at the Extension office.

Lorrie Wheeler believes Holly’s dedication to First Federal served her better than if she had worked at The Oakhill Dental Group. The experience gained from Holly Wheeler’s employment at the local bank, Lorrie Wheeler said, has complemented instruc-tion given by her parents to be a better business person. “We love having Holly with us,” said Gigi Register, Regional Sales Manager at First Federal and Wheeler’s boss. “She is a great testimo-ny of our partnership with the Finance Academy at CHS.” Holly Wheeler’s father, Brad Wheeler, is a retired funeral director. Occasionally, he takes time out of his retirement to help out at the Gateway-Forest Lawn Funeral Home. “She is one of those kids who has listened,” Lorrie Wheeler said. “She hasn’t always liked what I’ve said ... But I’ve told her, it’s not my job to tell you what you want to hear, but to tell you what you need to hear.” Holly Wheeler plans to attend the College of Dentistry at the University of Florida or Nova Southeastern beginning in the fall of 2016.
