Ronald Gene Maddox, 43, 723 NW Ridgewood Ave., was charged with larceny in connection with the crime. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $10,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, on Monday Deputy Kevin Bailey met with a representative from Ameriseal Highway Striping out of Jacksonville, who told him that the St. Johns County Sheriffs Office is investigating a case where Maddox, an employee, had been using a company gas card for personal use.

Report: Man caught with animal, child porn By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested Monday after local deputies found in his possession photographs depicting sexual acts with animals and with children, CCSO reports. John Thomas Clarke, 34, of 535 NW Moore Road, had a falling out with an unknown individual around Thanksgiving last year and was told to pack up his things and leave, according to the arrest report. However, Clarke left many of his personal items after his move, prompting the individual to clean out his room, the report said. The person reported find ing a collection of explicit pho tographs and sexual devices, including a cell phone memory card, in Clarkes old room, according to the report. Deputies found photos of minors in sexual circumstances and Clarke erotically engaging a black and white dog as well as himself, the report said. Clark Wildfire protection plan in the works By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Local officials are working to develop an emergency plan that addresses wildfire emergencies in the area. For at least the next 10 months they will work to create the Columbia County Wildfire Protection Plan. Doc Bloodworth, Florida Forest Service wildfire miti gation specialist and public information officer, said the plan is very similar to the local mitigation strategy. The Local Mitigation Strategy is a written plan that helps county officials identify ways to alleviate damage from floods, hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes, sinkholes and other disasters. While the local mitigation strategy addresses all haz ardous, manmade and natural disasters, Bloodworths plan focuses just on fires. Wildfire is considered in the LMS, but the Community Wildfire Protection Plan will give greater focus and enhance that portion of the LMS, Bloodworth said. Every year in Florida, an average of 3,500 wildfires burn nearly 140,000 acres, with residential and commer cial structures involved about 80 percent of the time. The Wildfire Protection Plan will identify the com munities at risk along with the values of properties and structures.

Ill have served eight years on the commission, Bailey said. Ive got three little girls [ages 13 months, six years and eight years old] and Im ready to be able to spend more time with them as theyre get ting a little bit older. Bailey was first elected in November 2006, tak ing over a vacated seat occupied by governorappointed interim com missioner Bill Whitleya seat sought by five other candidates that year. I took office at the point where there was no money and there were tons of cuts coming from every direction, Bailey said. Now we are a very healthy county financially, ranked very high. Were an example folks use and look at as a model for a small community, and thats certainly a very good thing. He said he was proud to be a part of a board that was able to bring water and sewage solu tions to the Ellisville area, secure funding for Bailey BAILEY continued on 3A

March trial date set for Bieber MIAMI A trial date has been set for Justin Bieber in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license. A Miami-Dade County judge set trial for the three misdemeanors for March 3. Biebers attorneys have already filed a written plea of not guilty. Initial trial dates are often delayed. The 19-year-old pop star was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two exotic sports cars. Breath tests showed Biebers blood alcohol con tent below the .02 thresh old for underage drivers. But police say a toxicology test detected the presence of marijuana and Xanax. Insurance fraud ring arrests made MIAMI Authorities say a number of arrests are being made in a major home insurance fraud ring operating in South Florida. Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and state Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater were scheduled to discuss details of the case Tuesday afternoon. Authorities say the fraud ring caused mil lions of dollars in losses to insurance companies. Much of the fraud involved arson-set fires at properties in the Miami area and elsewhere. Law enforcement authorities in South Florida have recently been battling several kinds of insurance fraud, includ ing staged auto accidents and faked personal injury cases. 2AWEATHER 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 5 06 07 08 09 Thursday Friday Cape Canaveral 75/63/sh 79/64/sh Daytona Beach 69/60/sh 75/61/sh Fort Myers 82/64/sh 83/65/pc Ft.

An admitted drug addict who first sought professional help more than two decades ago, Hoffman apparently succumbed to his illness with an overdose despite a return to rehab last March. A father of three with a thriving career, the Oscar winner died Sunday with a needle in his arm and baggies of what appeared to be heroin nearby. New York City medical examiners were conducting an autopsy on Hoffmans body Monday as investigators scrutinize evidence found in his apartment, including at least four dozen plastic packets, some confirmed to have contained heroin. His death, which came after a long period of sobriety that ended last year, epitomizes the tragedy of drug addic tion in our society, said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Here you have an extraordinarily tal ented actor who had the resources, who had been in treatment, who obviously realized the problem of drugs and had been able to stay clean, she said, adding that Hoffmans case shows how devastat ing addiction can be. Success has no more bearing on drug addiction than it does on heart failure, doctors say: Both can be fatal without consistent care. And while rehab may be part of treatment, its no antidote. Amy Winehouse and Cory Monteith had both been to rehab before eventually dying from overdoses. Addiction is a chronic, progressive illness. No one can be cured, said Dr. Akikur Reza Mohammad, a psychiatrist and addiction-medicine specialist who works as a professor at USCs Keck School of Medicine and is founding chief of Inspire Malibu Treatment Center. If someone is suffering from addiction, they cannot relax at any time. The brain neuro chemistry changes... so these people are prone to relapse. The younger a person begins using drugs, the more likely he is to develop an addiction, Volkow said. Hoffman wasnt specific about his poisons when he told CBS Minutes in 2006 that he used anything I could get my hands on before cleaning up with rehab at age 22. He said in interviews last year that he sought treatment for heroin addiction after 23 years of sobriety. Addiction causes chemical changes in the brain that remain long after a person stops using the substance, said Volkow, who described the condition as a chronic disease with a very long dura tion. Abstinence or substitute medication is often required to prevent the addict from losing control around his desired substance. Scripture of the Day Failure is not our only punishment for lazi ness; there is also the success of others. Jules Renard, French author (1864-1910) I will love thee O Lord my strength.

3A AND 159 SW Spencer Court, Lake City, FL O 242 near Casey Jones Campground (386) 243-1607 Email: Earl.bishop60@gmail.com For more information: Lake City Healing Room Announce the Opening of the Hours: Monday Evening 6-9:00 p.m. (Other times by appointment) Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 3A The Community Wildfire Protection plan will include projects that we need to implement in those areas with regard to defensible space for wildfires, looking at the ignitability of the struc tures and the assets in these areas next to the wildland/urban interface, also the hazardous fuel reductions that we do, Bloodworth said. Defensible space for wildfires, a clean zone where fuels have been cleared, reduced or changed to act as a barri er between the advancing wildfire and the property to be protected. Defensible space usu ally is a 30-foot-wide vegetation management zone around a structure, although fuels should be thinned beyond this first zone in high-risk areas. An 18-page draft of the Community Wildfire Protection Plan has been undertaken with help from the U.S. Forest Service and Florida Forest Service. Were looking a 10month period where we can convene folks and get concurrence on the plan as we develop it, Bloodworth said. Hopefully in October we can present it to the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners. A subcommittee of the Local Mitigation Strategy Working Group was formed and tasked with working on the Community Wildlife Protection Plan. The sub committee consists of rep resentatives from the U.S. Forest Service, Florida Forest Service, Columbia County Fire Department, Lake City Fire Department and representatives from other first responder and public safety agencies. The Community Wildfire Protection Plan that local, state and fed eral officials are working on is the first plan of this type for Columbia County to solely address wildfire. This would be new for Columbia County and it will be countywide, Bloodworth said. The main impetus comes from the fact that we have so much National Forest in Columbia County. There are 126 miles, 80,640 acres, of the Osceola National Forest in Columbia County. Officials are using a history of Columbia County wildfires to iden tify specific areas which may be more hazardous than other areas. Through the data a level of concerns list will be compiled, listing areas that are more susceptible to wildfire compared to other areas of the county. We can identify areas, not only geographically, but also in terms of juris dictions and neighbor hoods, Bloodworth said. These homes are identi fied, we know where they are, where people live and we know where the fires historically occur. We have to a little more pro active as we try to inform folks of the risks and the things they can do to miti gate those risks. Bloodworth said its important to develop a Community Wildfire Protection Plan because it represents a collabora tive approach to wildland fire protection and the identification of wildland fire risks and alternatives for wildfire mitigation. Black History month events well underway By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com More than 30 local residents gathered to celebrate the begin ning of Black History Month 2014 during a community event. Saturday night at the Richardson Community Center, the history, concept and reasoning behind Black History Month was chron icled as participants in the Its About My Effortsv program held a Black History Month opening ceremony. The program also chronicled the lives, contributions and accom plishments of African Americans and others. During the program, several area youngsters read biog raphies which detailed the contri butions of many African Americans to society. In addition, the program also fea tured a recording of a civil rights address by former president John F. Kennedy. Celebrating black history pro vides education to the community about black people and their con tributions locally and throughout the world, said Befaithful Coker, Its About My Efforts execu tive director. This instills selfconfidence in our youths and par ticularly aides in helping them develop a healthy foundation of identity. Coker said the children who participated in the program, from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, enjoyed it and especially enjoyed City of Lake City mayor Stephen Witt presenting a proclamation to them and telling them that people who look like them have and con tinue to make contributions that are significant. The children were elated that he was the mayor making those statements to them and some actu ally asked to touch him, she said. Witt presented a proclamation on behalf of the city, indicating the lives of African-Americans, both historically and presently, are significant and African-Americans have made improvements in edu cation, religion, business, science, literature, art, theater, music, tech nology and athletics. He encouraged every one to join him in celebrating Black History Month, Coker said. TONY BRITT/Lake City Reporter Local youths sit in the Richardson Community Center gymnasium Saturday night as Ansh Barot (standing) is aided Columbia County School Board mem ber Linard Johnson while giving a speech during the opening ceremony for Black History Month 2014. gave Bailey several docu ments showing stores, transactions and amounts of fuel purchased that totaled $10,732 of fuel purchased from Dec. 4, 2013 Jan. 21, 2014, at multiple Columbia County gas stations. The representative told Bailey when the company learned the purchases had been made illegally, they began questioning Maddox and after several attempts failed for him to admit the theft of the fuel card and the transactions, Maddox was terminated on Jan. 31. Bailey found Maddox at a Ridgewood Avenue address and he agreed to speak to Bailey. Although Maddox origi nally told Bailey his wallet had been stolen, reports said he later changed his story and he told Bailey that he did in fact use the card multiple times and he also said he gave people fuel in return for money or drugs. Maddox completed a sworn statement and was then arrested by Bailey and taken to jail. MADDOX Continued From 1A FORESTRY Continued From 1A he was born with a cleft lip. But UF Health Shands worked hard to ensure Owens received constant updates on her sons con dition and acquired all the information she needed. It was hard, but the peo ple at Shands were very, very supportive, she said. Very dedicated Between her dedication and her assistant manager Shauna Tyres hard work, the single store raised $4,196 the highest amount raised out of all the S&S Food Stores. From bake sales to raffles, the store employees con stantly found new ways to raise money for Childrens Miracle Network. Last year, they raised about $700 at a Jail and Bail event, where they locked store employ ees and community mem bers in jail. The inmates then raised money to bail themselves out. I dont think we could do it without the communi ty, Owens said. They are very dedicated. Every day, I see customers dropping their spare change into the bucket for the Childrens Miracle Network. Store 15 followed closely behind their sister store, raising $3,988. As the third highest fundraiser, store 52 pulled in $2,698. The Lake City community, home to 11 stores supervised by Patrick Nolan, pulled in the largest contribution for the S&S company at $17,584. We just have tremen dous support from the people who come into our stores, Nolan said. Its through their charitable contributions that we are able to donate directly to Shands. According to Scaff, the company bounced back in 2013 from a down turned local economy the year before a result of Tropical Storm Debby. S&S customers recovered from the county-wide flood ing and started spending money again, he said. Because of the uptick, the company placed $200,000 into the profit share plan. Everything is looking good, Scaff said. Were just planning on another great year. A great company with good people Keith Brown, vice presi dent of marketing and com munications, announced S&S employees celebrating their five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 40-year anniversaries. Brown himself was recog nized for his 40 years of service. Brown also named the 2013 employees of the month Shannon Wells in January, Ana Moore in February, Malinda Zamora in March, Thomas Klenk in April, Sherry Kennedy in May, Cody Arusa in June, Tracie Spradley in July, Mike Crews in August, Amy Davis in September, Debbie Malone in October, Matt Ginn in November and Kim Kinsey in December. The company pulled its Team Member of the Year from the pool of top 2013 employees. Spradley, man ager of store 37, earned the title. I never would have thought I would have won, she said. Six years ago, Spradley started at S&S Food Stores as a cashier. Quickly, she progressed through the ranks. Within three years, she managed the whole store. Honestly, I have to give credit to Lisa, my supervi sor. She saw something in me that I didnt see myself, Spradley said. Without her, I know I wouldnt be where Im at now. Before Spradley started her job at S&S Food Stores, she was a stay-at-home mom raising her three boys. When they were old enough to watch them selves, she sought a job to bring the family some extra income. I never would have thought when I went to work at S&S that I would love my job as much as I do, Spradley said. I really enjoy my job. Its a great company with good people. ... I love it just as much today as I did when I start ed. According to Spradley, a lot of her success comes from having a wonderful assistant manager and a great team. Now that shes manager, her job entails a little bit of everything grocery orders, paper work, merchandising, cashiering, maintenance and more. I dont expect them to do anything I wouldnt do, she said. Ill even scrub toilets. Promoted quickly Spradleys supervisor Lisa Gandiana nominated the hard-working employee for the honor of Employee of the Month. All the responsibil ity is on our store man agers the entire store, from the front door to the back door, Gandiana said. [Spradleys] always risen up and taken the store as her own, even before she was a manager. So now that she is a manager, its just multiplied. Three years ago, Spradley was promoted to manager of store 37, which sits close to Interstate 10. The store draws a mixed crowd of interstate traf fic, truck drivers and local shoppers. The mixture requires Spradley to con stantly evaluate what prod ucts would cater to each client base, and sometimes the ever-changing demand can become tricky. But Gandiana said she has always seen a drive, a passion and a dedication in Spradley that keeps the store manager learning and striving to achieve more. I take pride in this one, Gandiana said. We all love her. S&S Continued From 1A The Department of Children and Families took the children involved into custody, the report said. After deputies made con tact with him, Clarke con fessed to taking the photo graphs and performing the acts depicted, adding there may be additional photos of bestiality on his computer, the report said. However, he denied touching [redacted] and claimed that he would not do that while they were aware of it. He also stated he was a victim of child hood abuse, the report said. Clarke was arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility without incident on $85,000 bond. He faces charges of cruelty toward a child (pro mote sexual performance), possession of obscene material (child pornogra phy) and sexual activity involving animals. CLARK Continued From 1A various road projects (such as Old Wire Road and Herlong Street), invest in Southside Recreational Complex improvements and the countys growing sports tourism industry, and maintain the countys fire safety rating and qual ity of service. Ive thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciate the opportunity I was afforded to serve as county com missioner, he said. But its time to let someone else have the reigns. Commissioner Bailey has served as the board chair twice and vice-chair twice. His eight-year ten ure is second only to com missioner Ron Williams in terms of sitting board members.

QUILT RAFFLE Senate sends $100B farm bill to Obama By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press WASHINGTON The sweeping farm bill that Congress sent to President Obama Tuesday has some thing for almost everyone, from the nations 47 million food stamp recipients to Southern peanut growers, Midwest corn farmers and the maple syrup industry in the Northeast. After years of setbacks, the Senate on Tuesday sent the nearly $100 billion-a-year measure to President Barack Obama. The White House said the president will sign the bill on Friday in Michigan, the home state of Senate Agriculture Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow. The Senate passed the bill 68-32 after House passage last week. The bill provides a financial cushion for farm ers who face unpredictable weather and market condi tions. It also provides subsidies for rural communities and environmentally-sensitive land. But the bulk of its cost is for the food stamp program, which aids 1 in 7 Americans. The bill would cut food stamps by $800 mil lion a year, or around 1 percent. House Republicans had hoped to reduce the bills costs even further, pointing to a booming agriculture sector in recent years and arguing that the now $80 bil lion-a-year food stamp program has spiraled out of con trol. The House passed a bill in September that would have made a cut to food stamps that was five times more than the eventual cut. Those partisan disagreements stalled the bill for more than two years, but conservatives were eventu ally outnumbered as the Democratic Senate, the White House and a still-powerful bipartisan coalition of farmstate lawmakers pushed to get the bill done. The White House has been mostly quiet as Congress worked out its differences on the bill. But in a statement after the vote, Obama said the bill would reduce the deficit without gutting the vital assistance programs millions of hardworking Americans count on to help put food on the table for their families.

T here’s a classic David vs. Goliath battle brewing in the Florida Legislature over beer. When it comes to a head, lawmakers should side with consumers by supporting competitive markets. Like most states, Florida’s alcohol beverage laws reflect a time when there were limited choices of beers and people were more loyal to brands than to types of brews. The production and distribution of lagers and ales were controlled by a relative few large companies. In recent years, though, so-called “craft beers” have proliferated as consumers seek more diversity in their suds. These are small-batch beverages with offbeat tastes, often heavier on hops, malt or barley than traditional, mass-market beers. Many are sold in specialty shops, high-end liquor stores and pubs and bistros. As demand for their products increases, these microbreweries are seeking new ways to reach the public. But they are running up against a three-tiered legal frame-work of manufacturers, distributors and retailers that makes it difficult for the little guys to penetrate the market. Bills in the Legislature seek to modernize that structure. One would allow beer to be sold onsite in 64-ounce containers, called “growlers,” in addition to the current legal sizes of 32 and 128 ounces. The 64-ounce growler is the most popular size for craft beer enthusiasts and is legal in 47 other states. The other measure would allow retailers, such as supermarkets, to offer free beer tastings, much the way they do with wine. That would allow microbreweries to promote their products. Those seem simple enough. But the growler bill, which failed last year, is again stalled in committee. The tasting bill passed the Senate Regulatory Affairs Committee last week, but has an uncertain future. Although Anheuser-Busch has opposed the growler bill, opposition isn’t limited to large beer manufac-turers. Distributors also don’t want to give the little guys an exception to the middle tier of the regulatory system. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Mitch Rubin, a lobbyist representing Florida’s beer distribu-tors, told the Regulated Industries Committee last week that beer and wine tastings should be treated differently because wine tastings tend to be “more subdued” affairs. Stores promoting free beer sam-ples, he said, could create a “party atmosphere” on their property that could ultimately hurt the industry. He said that if the law gets changed to allow public tastings, there should be tighter regulations. That reasoning falls flat. It shouldn’t be the state’s job to tell retailers how to promote the products they sell, or to protect an industry’s image. If beer tastings become rambunctious, the stores will have to suffer the public rela-tions consequences, and perhaps answer to local law enforcement. There’s too much turf-protecting gumming up the works, with lob-byists (shockingly!) using political influence to rig the rules in their favor. The state ultimately needs to reform the alcohol laws — which were created when government feared post-Prohibition-era mob-sters would monopolize the booze supply — to reflect the modern marketplace, and to ensure that everyone has equal access. W e make the world a better place by being better people – kinder, gentler, slow to judge, quick to offer grace. I believe that. But some days, it’s easier said than done. Last week, I stopped at the market to pick up a few things. I was in a rush to get home and start dinner. Yes, that’s a lame excuse, but it’s all I’ve got. I grabbed what I needed and dashed to the check-out stand. Lines were long, except at the 15-items-or-less counter, where only one customer was ahead of me: A man with just one item, a small jar of some kind of salve. He slammed it on the counter. “I bought this yesterday,” he told her, “and didn’t get points. I want you to give me the points.” I hate points. I’m never sure how to use them. Apparently, if you save them up, you can get 10 cents off a gallon of gas under a full moon at a Speedy Mart 40 miles across town, if your membership card will scan at the pump, which mine will not. I hate those cards. I can never find them when I need them. Then I have to get dirty looks for holding up the line while I paw through my purse for something that will give me a discount that everybody ought to get anyway. But back to the man and his points. The clerk smiled and said, “Sorry, sir, you need to take that to customer service.” “No,” he said. “You do it.”So she spent five minutes punching in numbers to refund, and then re-ring, the sale. Meanwhile, the man ranted a blue streak on his cell phone to some poor soul (his wife?) about the audacity of the store, the inepti-tude of its employees and the gen-eral unfairness of life. “Here you go, sir,” the clerk said. “I gave you the points.” He studied the receipt.“I had more points before. What did you do with them?” I started to offer him all the points that I never use, but a man-ager showed up to escort him to customer service. When I told the clerk I admired her graciousness, she laughed. “Goes with the job,” she said. Driving home, I thought about her answer. It made me wonder. Is it really our “job” to offer grace to someone who is being so complete-ly ungracious? I’ve been asking myself that question for days now, and the answer keeps coming up “yes.” Not because, like the clerk, I get paid to be gracious. But because grace is a gift I’ve been given countless times with just one condition: That I give it back. I have no idea why the point man behaved as he did. I know nothing about him or what was going on his life. Years ago, when my first husband was battling cancer, I lost patience for lots of stuff. The December before he died, a friend came to stay with him so I could do some Christmas shopping. I promised to hurry back. In line at Macy’s, I heard a woman com-plaining that she always had to buy her own gifts because her husband never gave her anything she liked. I bit my lip so hard I tasted blood. Then a man cut in line to ask the clerk a question and I lost it. I heard myself yell, “Hey, buddy! There’s a line here!” Every head in the store turned to stare at me. I was mortified. I want-ed to crawl under the counter and hide. Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse, I burst into tears. And the woman who’d complained about her husband said, “It’s OK, honey,” and handed me a tissue. No one that day could have known why I behaved as I did. I certainly didn’t. But somehow it seemed they agreed, God bless them, to give me a little break. I wish I’d done the same for the man who wanted his points. Everybody needs a break once in a while. We don’t have to know the reasons. We just have to remember that sooner or later, it will be our turn, yours or mine, to need a little grace. Not to worry.It will probably be me.

Saving grace — for someone else Q The Washington Times Q The Panama City News Herald Florida’s beer warsO bamacare isn’t popular, and nobody knows it better than President Obama. In an inter-view with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News, Mr. Obama danced around the question of why he hasn’t fired Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the face of the fiasco. The president may have found a new cheerleader for Obamacare in Dr. Vivek Murthy, an English-born, Boston-based physician nominated to become surgeon general. His chief qualification appears to be that in 2008 he founded Doctors for Obama — now called Doctors for America. Doctors for America is a physicians as sociation linked by umbilical cord to Obamacare. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will decide whether to recommend that the 36-year-old Dr. Murthy will get the position. We can expect the majority Democrats to shift the discussion to the nominee, educated at both Harvard and Yale, having helped start a rural health program in Sringeri, India, and an AIDS program for young people in both India and the United States. Dr. Murthy’s roots are in India. The last thing committee Democrats want to hear are the concerns of a former surgeon general with bipartisan bona fides, who warned the White House against nominating such a “relatively inexperienced and untested physician” who shouldn’t be considered for the post so early in his career. Dr. Richard H. Carmona served for four years as surgeon general in the administration of a Republic an, President George W. Bush, and then ran for the U.S. Senate from Arizona as a Democrat, losing in 2012 t o Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican. In a letter to President Obama, Dr. Carmona wrote that a nominee without substantial public health experience or work in the U.S. Public Health Servic e Commissioned Corps would be at a “distinct disadvan tage in credibility, knowledge, and depth and bread th of experience when attempting to address complex publi c health issues.” The surgeon general may not have to be an advocate for public health. He may be assigned to attack-dog duties. Dr. Carmona went out of his way to endear h imself to Democrats after leaving the office by criti cizing the Bush administration for suppressing scientific findings that conflicted with the administration’s ideo logical agenda. There’s every likelihood that the founder of an Obama campaign booster club won’t resist being a shill for the administration’s health care takeover. Dr. Murthy has even hinted that the surgeon general ’s office might be a bully pulpit to promote gun contr ol as a “health” issue. “Signs of progress,” he tweeted las t April, “we got 20 votes in the Senate in favor of gun-viol ence legislation that we wouldn’t have had a year ago. Have faith.” A fight over the nomination is unlikely. With Senate Democrats having blown up confirmation rules, Mr. Obama’s most controversial nominees can get through the Senate with a mere 51 votes. Several red-state Democratic incumbent senators up for re-election in November would be wise to consid er whether to distance themselves from the new face of Obamacare in the interests of their own survival.

He said to wash my hair every few days rather than every day to avoid going bald. Is there any truth to this? D.G., Round Rock, Texas Answer: No, its not true. Balding has more to do with genetics, hor mone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies and drug side effects. It may seem that daily shampooing increas es hair loss because we see hair fall out during the washing process. But its possible to lose up to a 100 hair fibers a day and still boast a full head of hair. The shedding has nothing to do with shampooing. Its because hair follicles cycle between growth and rest. The growth phase may last for years but eventually, that hair follicle has to rest. Eventually, that hair fiber is pushed out by a new hair fiber growing beneath it. Brushing, combing or shampooing may loosen and detach these old hair fibers but this was their natural destiny anyway.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE — Columbia High is the defending Class 6A state champions. Kayli Kvistad is the reigning Class 6A player of the year. Both showed why on the open-ing night of the season. The Lady Tigers opened their quest for a repeat with a 2-1 victory against Atlantic Coast High on Tuesday. It’s one of five games on the road to start the season. Pitching was at a premium with hits hard to come by through the first five innings. A pair of sis-ters changed that in the sixth. Brittney Morgan had Columbia’s only two hits (double, triple) coming into the sixth, but the Lady Tigers were unable to move her home. Kamdyn Kvistad delivered a bloop single in her first varsity game and big sister Kayli Kvistad hit a homer on a rope in the following at-bat to break the scoreless tie. “Our bats have been on fire, including pre-season,” Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. “We’ve hit four in two games between Brandy (Morgan) and Kayli. That is just the first of many games Kayli will win for us this year.” Atlantic Coast got one From staff reportsColumbia High’s tennis teams got the season off to a good start with match wins at home for the girls and boys. The Lady Tigers nipped Orange Park High, 4-3, while the boys beat Union County High 8-0. “We have pretty much a freshman team and that was a very good start,” coach Tabatha McMahon said. “They toughed it out in the doubles.” Columbia hosts Middleburg High at 3 p.m. Thursday. Scores follow. CHS 4, Orange Park 3 Singles No. 1 — Cassidy Lear (C) d. Jordan Gray, 8-4; No. 2 — Megan Zahlne (C) d. Carley Hall, 8-6; No. 3 — Emily Wood (OP) d. Tori Jackson, 8-2; No. 4 — Allison Chu (OP) By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High baseball will be rebuilding in 2014 following a couple of years with outstanding teams. Leading the way is new head coach Rick Julius, who is moving up from coaching the junior varsity. Fort White played St. Francis High in a preseason classic game on Tuesday and will play Lincoln at 7 p.m. Thursday in another classic game at Gainesville. Columbia High visits Fort White for the regular season opener at 7 p.m. Feb. 11. Julius is not new to coaching baseball. He was an assistant coach at Keystone Heights High for 17 years, during which time the Indians from Clay County made 13 state play-off appearances. “We went to the state championship game the first two years, but that doesn’t happen every day,” Julius said. Julius’ new Indians will be competing with the old ones in District 5-4A. Bradford, Interlachen and Santa Fe high schools also return in the district, joined by P.K. Yonge School. Last year’s district champion, Williston High, is gone, but P.K. Yonge was district champ in 3-3A “(The district) doesn’t get any easier,” Julius said. “Even Interlachen has two good pitchers. Every night we will have to play our best game to compete.” Fort White will have to find pitching to replace the top three starters from last year who graduated. “We have Rhett Willis coming back and Tyler Parker also pitches,” Julius said. “We are young on the mound and that will be a huge part of our develop-ing block. My philosophy is throw a lot of strikes. Pitch to contact — three pitches and out. Let them hit the ball and play defense.” Returning to the varsity with junior Willis and senior Parker are senior Kodey Owens and juniors Trace Wilkinson and Willie Carter. Other seniors are Thomas Hatch, Brent Beach, Steve Giradina and Jayson Brock. Juniors Corey Pentolino and Austin Dupree and sophomore Ryan Ellis complete the Indians’ roster. “We had a big junior class and the majority played we me on JV,” Julius said. “They know how I like to run things and what they are getting into. They have had a great attitude and work ethic so far.” Julius is looking for base hits, then hustling on the base paths. “We have a few guys who are great gap people,” Julius said. “I think the long ball is usually the mistake of a bad swing. We want to stay away from the strike-outs and pop-ups. We are not blessed with speed, but you don’t have to have just speed to be a great base runner. All pitchers have tendencies.” The new baseball varsity head coach is happy with the start. “We have a great bunch of kids and they are learn-ing the way I like to play the game — hard, but right,” Julius said. “Our team rules are respect, do the right thing, be on time and give 100 percent. If not, there are consequences.” Lake City Reporter SPORTS Wednesday, February 5, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com 1BSPORTS BRIEFS Coach Rick Julius takes over young Fort White team.

Fort White made it into the sixth inning before the Lady Dogs brought on the mercy rule in a 10-0 win. Suwannee pitcher Haejin Choe shut down the Lady Indians on two hits. Alexa Hatcher had a two-out single in the first inning and Choe retired 15 batters before Ashley Chesney singled to deep short. Choe struck out six and hit a batter. Suwannee scored three runs in the first inning, five in the fourth inning and Choe drove in the two runs for the mercy rule with a double — her third hit and third RBI of the game. Morgan Cushman went the distance on the mound for Fort White. She struck out three and walked one. Shayla Kicklighter was 3-for-4 with a two-run double and three runs scored. Blakely Burch had a triple and two-run double. Kaitlyn Rogers had two hits and two RBIs. Fort White opens at home at 6 p.m. Friday against Santa Fe High.

DILBERT BABY BLUES DEAR ABBY BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: After a two-year relationship ended, I got pregnant on the rebound. I called my ex and told him I was having a baby with another man because I wanted to hurt him. Apparently it worked -at least that’s what his best friend told me. Now that a few months have passed, I ran into him and all those loving feelings I had for him came rush-ing back. Should I tell him? The father of this baby is a good-for-nothing deadbeat. He wants to be father-of-the-year without helping me financially. What should I do about my feelings for my ex, and what should I do about the father of my baby? — CAN’T DECIDE IN NEW JERSEY DEAR CAN’T DECIDE: It is time for you to grow up and accept responsibility for the situ-ation you’re in right now. Your behavior has been immature and irrespon-sible. The child you’re carrying is going to need someone who can provide for him or her financially and emotionally. Because you have feelings for your ex, contact him and let him know, but don’t count on him wanting to reconcile. Then you should also contact a lawyer about ensuring that “Babydaddy” lives up to his financial responsibilities. And in the future, when you decide to have sex with someone, recognize there could be conse-quences and use birth con-trol. Every time! DEAR ABBY: Recently my mother and I got into an argument on a four-hour road trip. She didn’t like my opinions or my answers, so she kicked my 17-year-old daughter and me out of her vehicle and abandoned us in an unsafe neighborhood two hours from our home. She has done it twice before, and I have yet to hear an apol-ogy from her for dumping us on the curb. Luckily, my son was able to come and retrieve us. Most people would have cut her off the first time she pulled this stunt, but I’m a “three-strikes-you’reout” kind of person. I have given my mother many opportunities to apologize for her behavior, but she refuses to acknowledge her own wrongdoing. I have decided this is the last time this will happen to me. I no longer speak to her and won’t allow my daughter to go anywhere with her for fear she will be dumped somewhere unsafe. My other kids -ages 21 and 22 -say I should get over it. Was cut-ting her off a reasonable response? — THUMBIN’ FOR A RIDE DEAR THUMBIN’: Your mother appears to have a short fuse and poor judgment. Is cutting her off a reasonable response? I think so. Dumping someone in an unsafe neighborhood could get the person killed, some-thing we see all too often in the media. If you ever decide to relent, however, and go anywhere with her, make sure you are the one behind the wheel because it’s clear Mama can’t be trusted when she’s in the driver’s seat. HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Impulse will be your downfall. Fight against any desire to get involved in an argument or to do some-thing totally out of charac-ter. Erratic behavior will leave you in a vulnerable position with few choices. Proceed in secrecy. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Communication and sharing plans with people who have common interests will result in an opportunity to travel, learn or discover new ways to enjoy and live your life. A chance to spend time with someone spe-cial will improve your relation-ship. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): What you are told will be questionable. Stick to facts when discussing per-sonal or professional mat-ters. You can ask for favors, but first find out what’s expected of you in return. Contact old colleagues if you feel uncertain about your current position. +++CANCER (June 21-July 22): Add flare to whatever you do or say. The way you express your likes and dis-likes will make a difference to the outcome. There are gains to be made if you con-nect with the right people. Share your concerns and your solutions. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you don’t like something, change it. Taking action and being proactive will show how capable you are, but don’t expect everyone to like what you do or say. Be pre-pared to deal with emotional issues that are brought to your attention. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Your personal finances will suffer if you make emotional purchases. Don’t overspend or feel you have to pay for others. Joint ventures will not turn out as planed. Focus on self-improvement, romance and family fun that you can afford. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t make personal or domestic changes. Moderation in all that you do will be necessary if you want to avoid loss. Invest in something that will bring you a safe and steady return. Accept a contract or settle-ment that is offered. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Getting together with people from different backgrounds will be enlight-ening. A change in attitude or to the way you live will enhance your life and bring you great joy. A change at home will inspire you to do something creative. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t exaggerate when discussing problems with friends or relatives. Gossip will lead to trouble that can affect your reputa-tion. Stick close to home and catch up on odd jobs that have been left undone. Don’t let someone from your past cause trouble. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t make unnecessary alterations to the way you do things. Keep relying on what’s worked for you in the past. Keep life simple and you will not have any need to worry about what’s going to happen next. Consistency equals stability. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Initiate change and follow through with your plans. Don’t allow an emotional meddler to come between you and your accomplishments. Actions will speak louder than words and bring you the results you are looking for. Stick to the rules and you’ll avoid interference. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Someone from your past will play an intri-cate role in your life now. Do your best to reconnect and explore new possibili-ties based on past interests. You can stabilize your finan-cial situation if you make the right choice or move. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Woman on the rebound wants back in ex’s court Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
