President of Robinson, Kennon & Kendron, P.A., Robinson has been working as an attorney for 42 years since his admission to the Florida Bar in 1972. He is a graduate of Columbia High School (’62), Florida State University (’66) and the University of Florida Law School with Honors (’71). “When I was an undergrad studying history and political science, I became fascinated by the legal system at the time,” Robinson said. “When I got off active duty, I still had wanted to go into law. It was very interest-ing to me.” Robinson to run for county attorney Robinson By JIM TURNER The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott is floating a $55 million proposal to restore and maintain the state’s natural springs, as state lawmakers increasingly focus on issues of water quality and quantity. The springs pro-posal, released Tuesday, is the lat-est issue Scott has highlighted as he contin-ues to roll out different aspects of his pro-posed re-election year bud-get. “These dollars will fund infrastructure projects that better utilize water, reduce water usage and decrease the amount of nutrients that end up in Florida’s wells,” Scott said. “In other words, we’ll pro-tect our water, resources and wildlife, while restor-ing water quality.” Scott said the money for the springs is expect-ed to be matched by local governments, boosting the funding.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol media release, Jake A. Hansen was transport-ed to Lake City Medical Center. He was driving his 2000 Suzuki 750 northbound on State Road 47 at 10:22 a.m. several vehicles behind Rafael Comesana, 51, of Fort White, the report read. Comesana began to turn left onto Southwest Sunview Street in his 2006 Jeep Wrangler when Hansen decided to pass the row of vehicles. Hansen struck the left front side of the Jeep, and was thrown into a wire fence on the north side of Southwest Sunview about 20 feet away, according to FHP. His motorcycle came to rest on the north shoulder. A helicopter was called in for Hansen and landed at the scene. However, he was too critically injured for transport, accord-ing to a source at the scene. Charges are pending further investigation, according to FHP. A report said Hansen was wear-ing a helmet at the time of the accident and the Comesanas were both wearing seatbelts. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, FHP said.

By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comLaw enforcement is on the lookout for a woman accused of pin-ning her husband against a car with her own vehicle and shoot-ing him in the leg, according to a Tuesday press release from LCPD. Around 6:00 p.m. Monday, Ruby L. Sheppard, 33, drove into the parking lot of Annie Mattox Park near NE Denver Street and attempted to run over her hus-band, Anthony L. Sheppard, 43, who was at the park with fam-ily and friends celebrating Martin Luther King Day, the release said. Witness said Mrs. Sheppard pinned her husband between two cars, got out and started a verbal argument with him while he was trying to extricate himself, the release said. Mrs. Sheppard returned to her vehicle, retrieved a semi-automat-ic handgun and began pistol whip-ping her husband, the release said. Their 21-year-old son attempted to break up the fight, but was pushed out of the way by his father when Mrs. Sheppard aimed the gun at her son, the release said. She then fired the gun, shooting Mr. Sheppard a single time in the upper left thigh before she fled the scene in her vehicle, the release said. Mr. Sheppard’s family brought him to Shands at Lake Shore to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. Police said they found Mrs. Sheppard’s vehicle at her resi-dence, but added she was still at large at press time. “Due to the citizens who stayed at the park to provide law enforceReport: Woman attacks husband with car, gun Sheppard SHEPPARD continued on 3A ROBINSON continued on 3A SPRINGS continued on 3A Photo-ban proposal laid to rest by city councilPATRICK SCOTT /Special to the Reporter JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterBy STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City City Council closed the shutter on a pho-tography ban proposed for the council’s rules of procedure Tuesday evening. Council members unanimously approved a resolution outlin-ing the city’s meeting procedures that contains no language barring the use of photography during meetings. The rules of the city council were drafted in response to SB50, a piece of state legislation designed to set bare minimums for citizen participation during public meetings. The first draft said photography would only be allowed before or after the meeting, or at the discretion of the Mayor or presiding officer. The final draft of the meeting rules omits any language regarding use of photography, but retained sections that allows law enforcement to remove unruly members of the audi-ence, according to Florida stat-ute 871.01. The council also voted to:•Approve a task order for Hatch Mott MacDonald to pro-ceed with the design, permit-ting, bid document preparation and bid process to construct the 1.5 MGD (million gallons per day) Kicklighter Wastewater Treatment Facility and construct a force main to reroute water from the existing St. Margaret Wastewater Treatment Facility to Kicklighter; •Award General Engineering Services Contracts to Tetra Tech Inc., Hatch Mott MacDonald and Jones Edmunds & Associates for future engineering projects, particularly in the field of utili-ties; COUNCIL continued on 3A

Stewart presented the changes and fielded ques-tions from the Board of Education and its meeting in Miami. The benchmarks for learning in language arts and math were adopted by Florida in 2010 and have been approved by more than 40 other states. The standards were developed by a coalition of state lead-ers and establish what a student should know to be prepared for college and the workforce. In Florida and elsewhere, the standards have been criticized as being part of a “federal intru-sion” into state education and a strategy to force children to take more high-stakes testing. Much of the criticism has come from conservative activists and the Republican Party of Florida. In response, Gov. Rick Scott ordered hearings on the standards. The state fielded more than 19,000 comments from teach-ers, parents and others. The result is 99 proposed changes, including 37 clarifications to the cur-rent standards, 60 new standards, 52 of which are for calculus, and two dele-tions.6 gay couples sue to overturn ban MIAMI BEACH — Six gay couples filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to over-turn Florida’s ban on same-sex marriage, the latest in a series of cases across the country that contend such prohibitions are uncon-stitutional and effectively relegate gay partners to second-class status. The lawsuit was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on behalf of the couples by Equality Florida Institute Inc., a civil rights orga-nization that works for fairness for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgen-der people. The lawsuit claims Florida’s gay mar-riage ban violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of equal protection and due process. The couples, many of whom have children and have been together for years, said they see no rea-son to be forced to move to a state that permits same-sex marriage when they have built lives in Florida. Vanessa Alenier, who is raising a 5-year-old son with partner Melanie Alenier, said they decided to share the same last name to come as close to marriage as possible — but the same-sex ban blocks that final step. “We want our son to understand that his fam-ily is secure and just as respected as any other family,” said Vanessa Alenier. “Melanie and I have worked so hard to build and protect our family, but nothing can come close to matching the protections that marriage provides.”Stand your ground denied for wife BARTOW — A Florida judge has rejected a wom-an’s “stand your ground” claim in the shooting death of her husband. Circuit Judge Catherine Combee concluded in an order filed Jan. 7 that the self-defense claim by 57-year-old Sheree Peters is “not credible.” The Ledger of Lakeland reports Peters is accused of manslaughter in the November 2012 death of her 62-year-old husband James Dennis Peters. She claims he threatened and attacked her before the shooting. Assistant Public Defender Patrick Long, argued in a motion that Peters was acting in self-defense when she tried to wrestle the gun away from her husband.Opera star to sing anthem at Super BowlNEW YORK T he Super Bowl will have a touch of the classical this year: Opera star Renee Fleming will sing the national anthem. The four-time Grammy winner will perform before the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Feb 2. Fleming is the first opera star to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. In recent years, it has been per-formed mainly by a mix of pop and country stars. Known as “The People’s Diva,” the soprano is closely identified with the New York City region, hav-ing spent years singing on iconic stages such as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. Last year, she received the National Medal of Arts, the highest honor the government gives to artists. Fleming, who lives in New York City, sang the national anthem before Game 2 of the 2003 World Series at Yankee Stadium.Jamaican bobsledders hit Sundance PARK CITY, Utah — This year’s Sundance Film Festival has featured two former presidential candidates, rap stars, male strippers and res-cue dogs. So why not the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team? The group appeared at the festival on Monday to promote their trip to Sochi for the Olympic Winter Games and seek some much-needed cash. When the team was approved entry this month, Jamaican officials said they didn’t have the money to travel to Russia to compete. Coach Wayne Thomas said some funding has flowed in, but the team is still in need. “What we really need now is money to buy the equipment, specif-ically the runners,” Thomas said of the skates attached to the bobsled. “The runners that we are using are very close to illegal right now.” When asked what the deadline was for the cash, he joked, “Yesterday.” So the team decided to head to Sundance to raise awareness, hop-ing that some celebrities with deep pockets might want to contribute. “We’re here to let people know that we are here and still in need of funding,” Coach Wayne Thomas said, adding jokingly, “And also to see some stars.” “Only lady stars,” said pilot Winston Watt, as the team broke into laughter. ‘Inside Edition’ adds Gabby Douglas NEW YORK — Olympic gymnastics champion Gabby Douglas will work as a special correspondent for “Inside Edition” at the Super Bowl. The 18-year-old Douglas won allaround and team gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics. The show said Tuesday she will report on the NFL championship from Jan. 28 through game day on Feb. 2. Douglas has said she plans to try to defend her title at the 2016 Olympics, but she’s been busy with plenty of TV appearances since London.

3A HIALEAH, FL. -An ingredient used to treat inflammation in thoroughbred racehorse legs, is now recognized as safe and effective for human use. The ingredient has been formulated into a product called ARTH ARREST TM and comes in a strength designed for humans. Developed by a pharmacist and a chemist, the ARTH ARREST formula is a breakthrough in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis. Researchers are excited and say the formula can relieve arthritis pain for millions. Scientists suggest that ARTH ARREST works by intercepting the pain messenger substance that sends pain signals to the brain. Although the mechanism is not totally clear, pain is relieved in the affected area because the pain signal actually disappears after continued use.. ARTH ARREST is the only product on the market with Neurocaine and is available in a convenient, roll-on applicator without a prescription. Considered a medical miracle by some, ARTH ARRREST is available in pharmacies or by calling 1-800-339-3301.

Columbia is Floridas only county with an elect ed county attorney. Building in Tallahassee. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, RLake City, was pleased with the announcement, calling $55 million a good number. However, she said there was more to be done. This is just one step in what I hope to be a long road in springs pro tection and restoration, she said. Porters main focus will once again be Ichetucknee Springs. Certainly I will do whatever I can to bring as much of that allo cation as possible to benefit the Ichetucknee, she said. Obvious next step Porter believes the county will get a significant portion of the money this year, despite receiving the lions share of the funds last year. The Everglades have come such a long way that it is not in such a crisis anymore, so we can move our focus elsewhere, she said. I think the springs are an obvious next step. Scotts proposal comes as a group of senators works on a $380 million long-range funding package for the natural water bodies that are sprinkled throughout central and northern Florida. Springs restora tion efforts are also expected to be in a House package that addresses water issues statewide. Scotts request easily overshad ows the $6.5 million he proposed for the springs prior to the 2013 session. Lawmakers will consider the new proposal during the legis lative session that starts March 4. The governors latest figure also easily outpaces both the Department of Environmental Protections $15 million request for the coming session and a $5.2 mil lion request from the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services to reduce agricultural nutrients from reaching the states northern freshwater springs. Scotts proposal includes $25 mil lion to improve water quality by reducing pollutants that run off in the waterways and $25 million for resto ration work. Also, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services would get $5 million to help agri cultural operations increase water conservation and use more efficient fertilization practices. Measurable improvements No projects have been designat ed for the money, and Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Herschel Vinyard said the money would be directed towards springs based on priority. The key is we (have) got to look to our scientists to decide where are we going to best be able to utilize those dollars, Vinyard said. Our focus is to look to the springs that are most in need, where we can also utilize cost sharing. We were able to expand the $10 million appropriation last year to about $37 million in projects, not studies but actually projects where we could see measurable improvements in our springs. The state Legislature was able to match the $10 million set aside for springs in 2013 with $27 mil lion from local contributions for projects in eight areas between Central Florida and the Panhandle, including: Silver Springs in Marion County; Ichetucknee Springs in Columbia County; Wekiwa Springs in the Orlando area; Kings Bay in the Crystal River; springs in the Homosassa and Weeki Wachee areas; Suwannee River Springs in Dixie County; Jackson Blue Spring in Marianna; and Williford Spring in Youngstown. We have to build on our suc cess, Scott added. Drew Bartlett, Department of Environmental Protection deputy secretary for water policy and eco system restoration, added that the state agency will ask the public for input on projects to fund. We have pristine springs, we also have impaired springs, so we certainly are looking at fixing the impaired springs and protecting the clean springs, Bartlett said. Last year, water-management districts drafted a $122 million plan to start the restoration effort for a number of endangered springs, which face threats from groundwa ter pumping and pollution. Stop pollution at the source Ann Shortelle, Suwannee River Water Management District execu tive director, said in a release the money would allow the district to continue reducing nutrient load ing and restoring flows. The springs --there are more than 700 in Florida --are threat ened by defective septic systems, excessive fertilizer use, run-off from urban communities and the growing demand for water as Florida will soon become the third most-populated state in the nation. But not everyone is on board. John Moran, co-director of the Springs Eternal Project, a collab orative of researchers and artists focused on the states springs as part of the Alachua Conservation Trust, said Scott needs to provide leadership by stressing a reduction in the use of water and springskilling fertilizer. What ails our springs cannot be fixed just by throwing a few million dollars at the problem, Moran said in an email. We must stop over pumping the aquifer, and we must stop pollution at its source. Moran added that without a healthy environment the state can not sustain a healthy economy. The issues plaguing our springs are largely the same issues afflict ing waters from the St. Johns River to Lake Okeechobee and the Indian River Lagoon, Moran added. The condition of our springs and rivers and lakes and coasts is a growing public health threat, a deepening environmental crisis and a looming economic disaster. I see a public relations nightmare for a state that can ill afford to lose its reputation for natural abundance and clean water. The springs proposal will be debated along with a Senate pack age that is expected include new regulations regarding wastewa ter-treatment plants, fertilizer use and reducing nutrients from septic tanks. The package is being pro posed by Sens. David Simmons, RAltamonte Springs, Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, and Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee. The governors commitment of funding for springs restora tion underscores the importance of moving quickly to address the challenge we face, Montford said in a release. Lake City Reporter staff writer Amanda Williamson contributed to this story. ment with an eyewitness account of these tragic events, the officers were able to quickly identify the aggressor in this crime and will be diligent ly searching for her for her immediate arrest, said LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore. The suspect faces charges of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault pend ing further investigation. Police encourage any one with knowledge of Ruby L. Sheppards whereabouts to contact Investigator Tammy Cox at 386-758-5471 or the anonymous TIP line at 386-719-2068. ROBINSON Continued From 1A SHEPPARD Continued From 1A Log truck overturns on Main Street By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com A tractor trailer carrying pine wood logs tipped Tuesday morn ing as it turned onto Main Street from State Road 47, spilling its cargo onto the nearby sidewalk and ditch. No one was injured, but police blocked one lane of traffic for sev eral hours while the logs were cleared away. Absolute Trucking driver John Jacobs said he believed his trailer was a bit top-heavy which caused it to tip as he made the turn. It was the first time he had ever tipped a trailer. It just had a mind of its own, he said. Once you get that weight going, theres nothing you can do. ... The only thing I could think about was making sure no one was in the way. I take a risk as a truck driver, but if anybody else had been hurt I dont think I could have lived with it. As the trailer tipped, it left skid marks on Main Street and blew one of the semi-trucks tires. Lake City Police Department responded to the scene, informing Jacobs his company would be held respon sible for the clean-up. According to Jacobs, the kingpin plate the part that holds the trailer to the truck broke off the trailer.

By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com A group of Floridians con cerned about water conservation have organized 16 simultaneous events this morning to promote their Floridians Clean Water Declaration Pledge campaign. Composed of representatives from over 100 different civic, water and environmental orga nizations around the state, the campaign aims to get policymak ers and citizens on the same page when it comes to find ing solutions to Floridas water qual ity and quan tity prob lems, said Merrillee MalwitzJipson, President of Our Sante Fe River, Inc. This pledge was designed to be collabora tive, not com bative. Our intention was not only to get citizens to sign the pledge, but also officials in unison, MalwitzJipson said. Were trying to promote a unified collaborative process with all water stakehold ers and those that govern our water. The declaration itself out lines Floridians six inalienable rights in regard to water and responsibilities activists believe government and industrial enti ties should have. Their signature will show their acknowledge that we all want the same thing, Malwitz-Jipson said. This pledge is a real no-brainer. When you read it, youd say How can I not sign that? While the events this morn ing are being held in larger cities such as Gainesville and Tallahassee, Malwitz-Jipson said she plans to approach Columbia County about enacting resolu tions on water conservation efforts.

T he innovative program called We Are One People has opened new doors on the path to higher education for 15 young Cubans at the biggest campus in the United States, Miami Dade College. Many of these stu-dents have been barred from uni-versities by Cuba’s dogmatic educa-tional czars because of the students’ articulate and well-founded criti-cism of the dictatorial regime that governs the country, or because of their association with dissidents. That should be a badge of honor, but in Cuba they were branded political heretics and cast out of the tightly controlled educational system for daring to speak their minds. Now, in Miami, they will have a chance to study English until March and then other courses in the curriculum. The idea is that after finishing the program they will then return to Cuba to share what they’ve learned with others who have not had their opportunity, according to Juan Antonio Blanco, director of the Center for Caribbean and Latin American Initiatives at Miami Dade College. Their costs are covered by the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba, a Miami-based nonprofit whose objective is to promote the growth of civil society on the island nation. This imaginative initiative places the advantages of free edu-cation, with no strings attached, within the reach of young people rejected by the educational system in their own country. In Miami, they will enjoy the blessings of a free country and a learning program that offers a broader vision of education and human potential than anything they would find in Cuba. The college provides a window to the world that does not exist in Cuba’s shuttered confines. The government’s ideological barricades are slowly being breached by the efforts of dissi-dents, visits by Cuban exiles and more-frequent travel abroad by Cubans now that the government has dropped the requirement of an exit visa for nearly everyone on the island. But the universities remain bastions of political dogma where free thinking and new ideas are spurned. Upon their return to Cuba, the students will be able to transmit the treasure of new ideas that open wider horizons for Cuba’s future, free of the stifling propaganda that poisons official discourse on the island. More broadly, the We Are One People scholarship lays the founda-tion for a genuine and significant student-exchange program. Now, it’s no longer a simple matter of American students visiting Cuba to take classes in their uni-versities. Now, for the first time, a group of students from Cuba comes to Miami to receive classes in a uni-versity recognized for its academic achievements. Now, it’s no longer a one-way street, although there is a long way to go before Cubans have ready access to colleges and univer-sities available in this country. More programs of this kind should be established on campuses across America for Cubans who seek knowledge free of the strait-jacket of “approved thinking.” Contact with a free society will benefit not only the Cuban stu-dents, but Cubans on both sides of the Florida Straits, as well as civil society in Cuba. By JOHN ORCUTTT he exotic-sounding name of the Suwannee River has led to it being the subject of more than a half dozen songs and consequently, becoming one of the most notable rivers in the world. One of the more popular songs about the river was written by Stephen C. Foster (1879), titled “Old Folks At Home.” Even though the lyrics of songs have made the river famous, relatively few people have actually been on or around the river. I personally remember as a child, decades ago, crossing the Suwannee River by car in route from cold Michigan to Florida’s beaches thinking, “wow, what a cool place.” However, it wasn’t until just a few years ago that I spent any time on the river. Now it is in my blood and is where I like to get away from a well populated coastal Florida beach community to commune with nature. It is a part of Florida that still illustrates the heritage of the people and natural beauty of the state 100 years ago. Geographically, the Suwannee begins at its headwaters in south Georgia in the Okefenokee Swamp and meanders 230 miles southwest through North Florida where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico just north of Cedar Key at the small village of Suwannee, Florida. Measured in terms of drainage basin and total water discharge the Suwannee is the second largest river in Florida. It holds the desig-nation as an “Outstanding Florida Waters” by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and has been referred to as one of the more pristine and undeveloped river systems in the United States. The river provides a wonderful opportunity for those who want to remove themselves from the fast pace, hustle-bustle of more populated areas. With over 65,000 acres, 130 (24 percent) miles along the river in public ownership for conservation and public recreation there is ample opportunity for hik-ing, boating, canoeing/kayaking, horseback riding, bicycling or just nature watching. The Suwanee River Wilderness Trail, a partner-ship between state agencies, coun-ties, cities, businesses and citizens provides facilities for multiday trips by land or down the river for those more adventuresome folks. The surrounding towns celebrate their heritage with special celebration events such as, Mayo’s fall Pioneer Days celebration and the spring folk festival at Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs. The numer-ous springs and swimming holes along the river provide an opportu-nity to cool off on those warm sum-mer afternoons. Personally, my family and I have spent a significant amount of time at one swimming hole located 100 yards down river from the old Drew railroad bridge, a white sand beach known to locals as Mayo Beach. Although there is not a crystal clear spring at this location it is a superb place to commune with nature. Over a few hours one can remove oneself from the sounds of popula-tion centers, enjoy a cool refreshing swim, wave at canoeists moving gently down the river, watch a pair of pileated woodpeckers move from tree to tree, or a fisherman pull in a bluegill. In the late after-noon you often hear the powerful sound of the barred owl or on a rare occasion see a mother deer and her young moving through the woods across the river. However, the most unique characteristic of this location is that it is seasonally (May-November) frequented by Gulf sturgeon. These ancient fish have heavy scales arranged in five rows of bony plates. They grow up to eight feet long, can weight over 200 pounds and have a habit of jumping high out of the water. This jumping makes them especially dangerous to fast moving motor boats or people on jet skis and can scare the breath out of an unaware swimmer. Scientists speculate the undammed Suwannee supports the largest population of Gulf Sturgeon with estimates of 10,000 – 14,000 fish, and I am pleased some of them share their swimming hole with me. The Suwannee River is a fabulous resource. However, like many bodies of water in Florida it is at risk from the pressures of people both in terms of water quantity and water quality. There are significant demands on surrounding ground water for urban use and agricul-tural wells. Such impacts have already caused reduced flow in ground water springs that support the river and water is being mined for bottling at several springs at a rate of a million gallons a day. Water quality has been negatively impacted by waste water treatment plants in Georgia and agricultural operations in the Suwannee River basin. It is important that we treat this resource with respect. It will be important to monitor the river closely and have the political will to take action to insure the quality of this unique resource. It is fortunate that a number of environmental organizations are working to this end. I hope they are successful so future generations of my family will enjoy swimming at Mayo Beach.

In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson pleaded for an end to war in Europe, calling for “peace without vic-tory.” (By April, however, America also was at war.) In 1944, during World War II, Allied forces began landing at Anzio, Italy. In 1959, 12 workers were killed in the Knox Mine Disaster in Pennsylvania. In 1968, the fast-paced sketch comedy series “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” premiered on NBC-TV. In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court, in its Roe v.

In 1984, the Los Angeles Raiders defeated the Washington Redskins 38-9 to win Super Bowl XVIII, played at Tampa Stadium in Florida. (The game broad-cast on CBS-TV featured Apple Computer’s famous “1984” ad introducing the Macintosh computer.) Q Associated Press G ov. Rick Scott’s announcement Tuesday that he would push for $55 million in funding for Florida’s freshwater springs was welcome news. It’s not enough to finish the job started last year, but does show Scott hasn’t taken his eye off the ball. Undoing decades of abuse and neglect will take a while longer, and a good deal more cash. Nonetheless – provided lawmakers actually appropriate the funds, and state bureaucrats divide them fairly – we’ll be well ahead of where we might have feared not too far back. Local springs champion Rep. Liz Porter, R-Lake City, has been fighting to save our freshwater treasures since the day she set foot in Talahassee. Her counterpart in the Florida Senate, Charlie Dean, has taken up the cause as well. As chairman of the Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, Dean did us proud last year, helping steer nearly $4 million to our own Ichetucknee restoration project. Let’s hope our legislative delegation comes through again this year – and while we’re at it, the year after that. Advantages of an American education Q John Orcutt is an Audubon Florida board member.

US Hwy. 90 386.755.2233 "MM.FEJDBSFQBSU%QMBOTBDDFQUFE Dear Pharmacist, I’m taking a prescription drug version of fish oils for my heart and cholesterol. I want a plant-derived option because I’m a vegetarian, plus I get “fish burp.” Are there plant-derived essen-tial fatty acids, or do you have to get it from fish? —H.B., Plano, Texas Answer: Fish burp often happens if you have a defi-ciency of probiotics and digestive enzymes, how-ever people assume the burp happens from rancid oil. Fish oils aren’t usually rancid nowadays. They’ve are the gold standard sup-plement for people seeking essential fatty acids. I’ve been a fan of essential fatty acids, and fish oil in particular for many years, however, I respect your desire to find a veg-etarian source. Depending on the oil, you won’t get as high a concentration of EPA and DHA from a non-fish oil supplement, but you will get other benefits. I per-sonally take plant-derived essential fatty acids, and cook with some too! I put other oils on my face too. I’m not fat phobic, I think good ‘fats‘ are crucial to feeling well. Oils lube the joints, and help with regu-larity, they plump the skin and support heart health! Here are my favorite oils and how you can take them, then you can decide what’s right for you. Not all of them have EPA/DHA in them, these are just my personal favorite oils: Coconut Oil: I love applying this to my skin, and cooking with it. I also put this in my smooth-ies. Coconut oil helps my brain, it’s known to sup-port brain health. Chia Seed Oil: I love chia seed oil as a supple-ment (Chia Omega by Essential Formula’s is the newest kid on the block, sold at health food stores nationwide). Chia seed oil provides your body with “alpha linolenic acid.” Then, your body converts that to some EPA and DHA, which are the two primary ingredients in fish oil! Chia seeds also pro-vide quercetin and antioxi-dants to support general cellular health. Grape seed Oil: I love cooking with grape seed oil because it has a mild flavor, so I use it in my pesto sauce recipe, in salad dressings and in place of olive oil. Moringa: A superfood used to combat malnutri-tion for centuries. The name “moringa” means “reddish brown” likely referring to the seed color. One popular brand is made by “Organic India” and I like this one because they use organic moringa, plus it comes in a powder for my smoothies and soft-gels for supplementation. Argan Oil: It comes from a nut, common to Morroco, and it’s used cos-metically. I use it on my skin for fine lines and elbows/heels. I sometimes spray “Morrocoan Oil” on my hair for lightweight shine. Flaxseed Oil: It provides a natural source of estrogen, which is thought to knock out bad estro-gen from your cells.

Rick Scott said Tuesday he will vote against a proposed constitutional amend-ment to allow the medi-cal use of marijuana if it makes the 2014 ballot. “I have a great deal of empathy for people bat-tling difficult diseases and I understand arguments in favor of this initiative. But, having seen the terrible effects of alcohol and drug abuse first-hand, I cannot endorse sending Florida down this path and I would personally vote against it,” Scott said through a spokes-woman. “No matter my per-sonal beliefs, however, a bal-lot initiative would be up to the voters to decide.” The issue will put him at odds with Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist, who is seeking the nomination to get his old job back with his new party. Scott, who is the former CEO of the Columbia/HCA hospital chain, has previously said he is opposed to “illegal drug abuse” but hasn’t specifically expressed opposition to the effort to allow use of marijuana for medical purposes when prescribed by a doctor. Scott also supports Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi’s effort to keep the pro-posal off the ballot by arguing the 74-word sum-mary of the proposed amendment is confus-ing. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz, both Republicans, also support Bondi’s effort. Crist’s boss, John Morgan of the Morgan & Morgan law firm, is lead-ing a petition drive to put the proposed amendment on the ballot. He’s less than 90,000-voter signatures away from the 683,149 needed to put the issue before Floridians. Morgan has spent nearly $3 million on the petition drive. “No disrespect to the attorney general, but the notion of trying to get it to a point where you and I and the people of Florida don’t get the opportunity to make this decision is not what a public servant should be doing. I support it, it’s the right thing to do, it is out of compassion and I’m glad John’s doing it,” Crist said last week. Morgan didn’t return calls to his cellphone seeking comment. The Supreme Court is considering Bondi’s argu-ment to strike the ballot language. The court will not rule on whether it approves of medical mari-juana, but rather whether the 74-word ballot sum-mary is misleading or not. Citizen initiatives are limited to 75 words when summing up a proposed constitutional amendment.Gov. Scott will vote against medical marijuanaInsurance through work? Health law affects you, tooBy CARLA K. JOHNSON and TOM MURPHYAssociated PressThe health care overhaul’s reach stretches far beyond the millions of unin-sured Americans it is expected to help. It also could touch everything from the drug choices to doctor bills of people who have insurance through work. The law isn’t expected to prompt sudden, radical changes for workers. So you proba-bly won’t lose your job due to the overhaul, despite claims by the law’s opponents. But benefits experts say there are several other ways the law can leave fingerprints on the benefits of the roughly 149 million people who are covered through their jobs. Is my job safe?Republicans have called the overhaul the “Job-Killing Health Law.” This is in part because of the law’s requirement that companies with 50 or more workers offer full-time workers — defined as those work-ing 30 hours or more — health coverage. Some companies have said they are cutting part-time workers’ hours to keep them below that threshold. Texell Credit Union in Temple, Texas, is one. CEO Tony Hale told a credit union trade publication last month: “We don’t like doing this because that takes hours out of paychecks and we know people need the money.” But the anecdotes of companies cutting employees’ hours aren’t showing up in official U.S. employment numbers. In fact, recent government figures show job gains, not losses. Employers are giving workers about the same number of hours as a year ago. And the number of part-time workers who would rather work full time is lower than a year ago. And not every employer is looking to make cuts. Caterer David Borris, who has 25 full-time workers and up to 80 others during the holiday party season, said he’s offered insurance for full-time workers since 1990. He believes the law has stabilized what he pays for insurance premiums. Borris, whose suburban Chicago company is too small to fall under the law’s mandate, argues that health benefits attract good workers. “Good employees ain’t a dime a dozen,” he said. “I need a cook who doesn’t put too much pesto on the vegetable focaccia sandwich. I need drivers who don’t get lost.” Still, it’s a long time yet before larger employers would pay a penalty for not pro-viding health insurance to full-time work-ers. That penalty, along with the coverage requirement, was delayed until 2015. So the law’s biggest hiring effects could be ahead. Will I pay more?Many companies already are starting to change benefits to avoid an overhaul-mandated tax on high-cost plans that takes effect in 2018. One way a company can lower the cost is to raise an employee’s out-of-pocket expenses. So, your plan may introduce a bigger deductible, which is the amount you have to pay for care before most coverage starts. It also might require you to start paying more at the doctor’s office in the form of a higher co-payment. Employers think these moves also will help control rising health care costs, a problem that has been around longer than the overhaul. The idea is that patients who have to satisfy a $1,000 deductible before insurance coverage starts will shop around for the best deal on the MRI their doctor ordered. Overall, the federal law could raise the total cost of an employer-sponsored health plan from 1 percent to 5 percent, said Tracy Watts, a senior partner with the human resources consultant Mercer. Employees pay a portion of that total through paycheck deductions, and wheth-er those grow will depends on the employ-er and the coverage. For instance, costs could rise if your coverage has to be adjusted to meet a minimum value set by the law or if your employer winds up cover-ing more people. The overhaul also requires coverage of a list of benefits considered essential, including things like mental health treat-ments and pediatric dental and vision care. A company’s costs could rise if they don’t already cover everything on that list. That could then be passed on to employees. Taxes and fees required by the law also could add to insurance bills. Will my coverage change?The law may prompt some companies to drop coverage for their part-time workers and send them to public health insurance exchanges. Some businesses also may start excluding spouses from their coverage, but most companies have avoided doing that, said Jim Winkler of the benefits consulting firm Aon Hewitt. And drug plans also may start offering fewer choices for prescriptions or a nar-rower network of pharmacies that people can visit. The 2018 tax that is motivating companies to adjust their health insurance plans also is prompting them to narrow the list of drugs they cover, said Dr. Steve Miller, chief medical officer for Express Scripts Holding Co., the nation’s largest pharmacy benefits manager. That means a plan may offer a choice of two options instead of three for a particu-lar prescription. Being restrictive like that gives drug plans leverage to negotiate bet-ter prices and consequently, lower costs. At the same time, most people can now get flu shots or fill birth control prescrip-tions with no out-of-pocket costs because of an overhaul provision that makes it easier for people to get preventive care. What about wellness programs?For years, employers have tried to control medical costs by offering voluntary wellness programs that reward work-ers for participation. T-shirts and gym memberships progressed to discounts on employees’ share of insurance premiums if workers kept their cholesterol levels low or their weight down. The trend got a boost from the health law starting Jan. 1, when employers could begin offering bigger incentives than pre-viously permitted by law. The rewards now can equal up to 30 percent of the cost of health coverage. That means a worker who normally pays half of a $5,000 annual premium for health coverage could get up to a $1,500 discount for losing weight. Additional rewards are permitted for tak-ing part in stop-smoking programs. Employers are paying attention. The nonprofit International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans said two in five employers are ramping up their wellness initiatives because of the law. But concerns about fairness and discrimination have been raised by unions and consumer advo-cates, which could dampen the trend. WIKIMEDIA COMMONSA 2-year-old North Atlantic right whale died off the shor e of St. Augustine in early 2011 and was dragged onto the beach for an autopsy. More than 40 whales were beached on Florida’s coastal lines last year — at least another e ight have been found since 2014 began. 8 pilot whales found dead off Miami’s coastAssociated PressMIAMI — Authorities said eight pilot whales have died in shallow waters off Florida’s southwest coast. Six others remain unac-counted for. The Coast Guard temporarily closed the area to traffic and ordered boaters to reduce speeds Tuesday as they searched for the other whales. On Monday, two whales died and two others were euthanized after beach-ing themselves near Fort Myers. Officials said necropsies will be performed on the dead whales to find out whether they were sick. In December, more than 50 pilot whales stranded in Everglades National Park. Several died. Pilot whales live in deep water and swim inland if they suffer from toxicity or disease. They tend to travel in pods of a couple dozen or more and tend to follow one or two pod lead-ers, or navigators.MARINE LIFE Associated PressMELBOURNE — Central Florida health offi-cials say a woman in her mid-30s who recently gave birth has died from the flu. The woman is the second flu fatality in Brevard County this season. Officials said Monday that the woman gave birth in early December. Another woman in her 30s died Jan. 5 at the same Melbourne hospital. The director of the county’s health department tells Florida Today that two other people in Brevard hospitals remain on life support due to influenza. Earlier this month, health officials in north Florida reported that 12 people had died from the flu at a Gainesville hospital since October, including five people under age 40. Officials say it’s not too late in the virus’ season to get the flu vaccine.Flu deaths continue

DEAR ABBY: I am a 53-year-old male who is fit, healthy and has a good job. I also have two failed marriages behind me, which have cost me dearly, both emotionally and financially. I have no intention of making that mistake again! I have been on my own for five years, and in that time I have had five relationships -always with women my age (give or take a few years). My problem is that women my age seem to have only one agenda: marriage. One very nice lady finally clarified her feelings by saying that at this time in her life, she didn’t have time for “just dating” because in a few years she’d be 60. I understand her dilemma, but I’m not interested in younger women. I try hard to make it clear at the beginning of any rela-tionship that marriage is out of the question, and I don’t proceed with the relationship unless the lady wholeheartedly agrees. But somehow I have broken five good hearts, whose only trans-gression was falling in love with me. — NOBODY’S RETIREMENT HUSBAND DEAR N.R.H.: I admire your self-image. You must be doing something right to have the ladies lining up the way they are. However, you may not be as effective a communicator as you think you are if five differ-ent women failed to get the message you said you con-vey. I have several thoughts about your predicament: If your only fear of marriage is that you would again be cleaned out finan-cially, a strong prenuptial agreement could help you avoid any problem if a third marriage didn’t work. However, if variety is what you prefer, then you should restate your message every few months as these rela-tionships blossom. DEAR ABBY: Once a year I type my ZIP code into a website to see who the registered sex offend-ers are in my area so I can be better informed and protect myself and my fam-ily. A photo, address and the charges attributed to the offender are posted on the site. My jaw dropped to the floor when I saw a man listed that I work with and see quite often. The picture looked recent. Should I tell my teenage daughter who sometimes visits me in the office? Should I tell the other women who work here? If a co-worker knew this kind of information and showed it to me, I’d be grateful to know. What do you think I should do? — STUNNED IN THE CITY DEAR STUNNED: Tell your daughter to keep her distance from this co-worker. But before you drop this bombshell at the office, you should first discuss what you have learned with your employer. DEAR ABBY: I hope you can help with this eti-quette question. My son and his wife believe that when you finish a good meal, you toss your napkin on the now-empty plate. They say this sends a message that the food was great. I do not agree. Is placing a grubby napkin on the plate inappropriate behav-ior or is this legit? — NOT A NAPKIN-TOSSING DAD DEAR DAD: Your son and his wife need to re-read the chapter on table man-ners in their etiquette book. When a meal is finished and the plate is empty, diners should place their used napkins on the table BESIDE their dessert plate. It should not be placed on top of a dirty plate. P.S. If they don’t own an etiquette book, it appears they could use one. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): What you do to help a cause will raise ques-tions. Take care of personal responsibilities before offering your services to outsiders. A relationship will take an emotional turn. Speak up and air your con-cerns, but don’t make an impulsive move. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Opportunities are present, but you may misunderstand what’s expected of you. Do not make a commitment. You are better off learning all you can and developing a plan that will enable you to handle whatever situation you face with ease. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Put your best foot forward. Ask ques-tions and take on new projects. What you offer will be greatly appreciated. A change will occur in the way you move forward with your plans if you lend someone a helping hand. +++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Emotional matters will lead to arguments if you aren’t careful about how you deal with others. Take a deep breath and get involved in something you enjoy doing. Avoiding sticky situations will give you time to think matters through and regroup. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get moving. The more mobile you are, the happier you’ll be. Taking on domestic tasks will help improve your surround-ings, comfort and attitude. A partnership looks good and details regarding how to move forward can be made. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Before making a decision, listen to what’s being offered. An impulsive move will turn out to be costly. Love is in the stars and romance will set the mood. Children will play a role in a decision you make. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t overdo it at home. Too much to eat or drink will result in physi-cal or emotional problems. You are better off going to a destination that makes you feel relaxed, or spend-ing time with someone who brings you comfort and joy. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Get together with someone who brings out the best in you. New ideas will result in changes that will encourage you to live better. Ease stress by addressing emotional issues. Take care of per-sonal business and move on. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Getting together with a colleague you used to work with will spark ideas that can lead to new opportunities. Share your insight and experi-ence and you will change the way people view you. A change at home will bring you emotional satisfaction. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Expect to face some opposition along the way. It may annoy you, but showing anger will not fix what’s wrong. Back away until you have a better idea on how you want to handle this situ-ation. Focus on love and romance. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Go over your personal papers and look at your financial situation. An old idea used in an updated and diverse manner will help you bring in extra cash. Use past experience and physical endurance and you will excel. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Get out and mingle, offer assistance and go where the action is. There are deals to be for-mulated and money to be made. Don’t let a change in partnerships slow you down. Opportunity doesn’t linger. Make your move and don’t look back. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

GOLF REPORTS Frost brings no problems A surprising number of diehards waited out a long frost delay to play in the MGA BU/BB tournament. It was worth the wait for the team of Bob Randall, Bruce Gibson, David Rhodes and Mike Boris, who picked up a score card decision over Jordan Hale, Chris Lewis, Eddy Brown and Tom Wade. Steve Thomas had the day’s best individual gross score of 74 and Mickey Willcox was first in the net category with 67. Jonathan Allen birdied the first hole and added two more later in his round to take first place at +8 in the A flight of Wednesday’s blitz. Dennis Crawford gave chase with five birdies of his own and posted a three under par 69, good for +6 points and a second place finish. Unfortunately for the competition Crawford skipped the pot hole game and let Bob Randall’s deuce on number five hold up for a nice pot hole win. Keith Shaw and Mike Jacobs were in third at +1. Buddy Slay took an easy win in B flight with +10, four points ahead of Mickey Willcox. John Raulerson and Corey Bannister tied for third place with +4. Crawford collected for three skins; Jacobs and Allen had one apiece. The maxed out pot hole carried over. In the Sunday blitz, Joe Paul and Steve Thomas rolled in late birdies to pull even with Mike Jacobs in a three way tie for first at +3. B flight almost ended in a three way tie but Bob Randall hung on to outscore John Raulerson and Tom Wade by a point. In closest to the pin action, winners were Jacobs on No, 5, Dell Sanders on No. 7, Thomas on No. 15 and Mickey Willcox on No. 17. The skins payout was split among Paul with two, Scott Kishton, Timmy Rogers, and Wade. The Good Old Boys continued their string of close matches. In three way action the team of Rob Brown, Emerson Darst, Larry Ward and Bob Wheary put four points on the board to take the win. The four-some of Ed Snow, Dennis Hendershot, Mike Spencer and Stan Woolbert matched the team of Bobby Simmons, Steve Crane, Joe Persons and Steve Peters in a second place tie with three points. In the second match, Marc Risk joined Jim Bell, Merle Hibbard, Dave Cannon and Howard Whitaker for a 6-5 win over the team of Rhea Hart, Jim Stevens, Nick Whitehurst and Dan Stephens. Risk (39-37-76) extended his hold on the medal-ist seat to the third week. Snow (38-40-78) provided the only competition. In nine hole play Bell eagled No. 8 to finish in a tie with Rob Brown at 39. Peters was the back nine winner with a 38, one stroke better than Hart and Simmons. COUNTRY CLUB at LAKE CITY Ed Goff The big blitz winner this week was Luther Huffman with his +7.
