By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA man shot to death after aiming a handgun at a police officer at a DUI checkpoint was a violent felon who served time in a Tennessee prison for rape, records there show. Jimmy Eugene Barker, 60, of Louisville, Tenn., was stopped Friday shortly before midnight at a Lake City Police Department checkpoint in the 1400 block of US 90 West, across from the Florida Highway Patrol office. As Officer Mike Lee approached, Barker drew a handgun and pointed it out the window at him, according to an LCPD news Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, MARCH 16, 2014 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.50 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM COMMUNITYRichardson Middle School receives donation, 5A.

Were going through third-party certification with a company called McCallum Sweeney, Plum Creek Real Estate Manager Allison Megrath said Friday. What that means is they will take all of our due diligence and review it against a very extensive checklist...If we meet that standard, they will certify the site as a mega industrial park [aka megasite]. According to documents published by McCallum Sweeney, megasite certification entails three main components: The site must be available for sale; The site must be fully served by utilities or have research showing the logistics of installing sufficient utility infrastructure; The site must be free of all easement, right-of-way, environmental, geological and historical concerns, including surveys to determine if any existing cultural resources (like historical artifacts) would inhibit development. They dont cut any corners, Megrath said. It separates this site from other like sites when a prospect is looking...The end users know, once they see that [certification], they dont have to worry about it. One of the main benefits of the certification, Megrath said, is that prospective end-users businesses looking to physically establish locations in the park could save a substantial amount of time during the negotiation process. Once we get [certified], we can use that as a marketing tool to reach out to potential end-users to locate on the site, Megrath said. It shaves off six to eight months for a prospect having to review all of the due diligence because they know McCallum Sweeney has already done that for us. She said Plum Creek expects to submit what appears to be the final paperwork to complete the process within the next 30 days. McCallum Sweeney also serves as a liaison for businesses looking to expand and would be in a position to recommend the intermodal park to prospective clients once certifications is complete. There are only two other McCallum Sweeneycertified megasites Plum Creek site status to soar Intermodal Park soon to be certified as megasite.

The three-day rodeo, which ends today, drew people from across the region. Denise Minatree came from Live Oak and said she enjoyed the show. My favorite event is always the bull riding my son used to do it, she said, noting she had not attended the rodeo in a while. My friend asked if I wanted to go and I said, sure. From bareback riding, saddle bronc, barrel racing, calf roping, steer wrestling, bull riding and team roping, the crowd yelled and howled throughout the evening Friday. Wylie Williams attended with his father, Casey Williams. The rodeo was good, said the five-year-old. I had a great time watching the bucking horses.

Crash kills central Fla. motorcyclist LAKELAND A motorcyclist is dead in central Florida after running a red light and colliding with a sports utility vehicle. The Lakeland police depart ment announced the 2004 Suzuki motorcycle struck a 2000 Jeep Cherokee SUV in the intersec tion of South Florida Avenue and Lime Street shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. The ensuing investigation revealed that the motorcycle was reported stolen from Kissimmee in December. Peter Nelson of Tampa was driving the Cherokee and was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.After 37 years on run, killer caught DEERFIELD BEACH In the nearly 40 years after he escaped from the maximum-se curity military prison at Fort Leavenworth, convicted killer James Robert Jones carved out a new life for himself in Florida, living under an assumed name, getting married and working for an air conditioning company. It all came to an end this week when Jones or Bruce Walter Keith, as the former Army private was known in Florida was recaptured with the help of technology that was more sci-fi than reality when he broke out during the disco era: facial-rec ognition software. The first words out of his mouth were, I knew this would catch up with me someday, Barry Golden, a senior inspector with the U.S. Marshals Service, said Friday. Jones, 59, was one of the Armys 15 most-wanted fugitives after his 1977 escape from the Kansas prison dubbed The Castle for its large walls and tower keeps. He was convicted of murder and assault in the 1974 killing of a fellow soldier at Fort Dix in New Jersey. According to the archives of The Times of Trenton, Jones, who is originally from Ontario, Calif., was found guilty in the stabbing death of Lonnie Eaton, 18, and the wounding of anoth er man. Police at the time said Eaton and a friend were walking back to the base from a bar when they were attacked by three men with knives after one approached and asked if they had any marijuana to sell. Jones was serving a 23-year sentence when he escaped. The marshals caught up with Jones on Thursday after using facial-recognition technology to match a Florida drivers license he was issued in 1981 in Keiths name with his old military photograph. Jones was arrested outside the Pompano Beach business where he worked.Judge to decide Tampa killers fate TAMPA A Hillsborough County judge is deliberating the fate of a man convicted of killing two Tampa police officers. Hillsborough Circuit Judge William Fuente heard testimony Thursday and Friday regard ing Dontae Morris. A jury in November found Morris guilty of the murders of Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis and recommended he be sentenced to death. He fatally shot the officers during a traffic stop in 2010. During Fridays hearing, a doctor said she could find little in Morris behavior to suggest his judgment was crippled by below-av erage intelligence. His attorneys have suggested otherwise. Fuente asked prosecutors and defense attorneys to submit written arguments about whether Morris should receive the death penalty. The judge is expected to make a decision by the end of May.Charges dropped in FAMU case ORLANDO An attorney for one of the remaining defendants charged in the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major said Saturday that prosecutors will not pursue charges against his client. Zachary White, the attorney for ex-band member Henry Nesbitt, told The Associated Press that the state attorney is dismissing manslaughter and felony hazing charges against Nesbitt in Robert Champions November 2011 death following a hazing ritual aboard a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel. A message left with the state attorneys office was not imme diately returned, but a Nolle Prosequi was filed Friday in Nesbitts case. The Latin phrase means the charges are not being pursued.

More than 300 books related to the Holocaust victim, including The Diary of a Young Girl, have been found vandalized recently at libraries across Japans capital. Tokyo police said the man, 36, sneaked into a library on Feb. 5 and ripped pages from 23 Frank-related books, including at least one copy of the diary. Some of the ripped pages were found in a plastic bag at an unidentified house in Tokyo. Police said the suspect admitted to ripping the pages out of the books, but that his motive was unclear. They didnt release the suspects name. Frank wrote her diary during the two years her family hid from the Nazis during World War II. She was 15 when she died in a concentration camp in 1945. Her father survived and published the diary, which has become the most widely read document to emerge from the Holocaust.Hollywood reporter Bob Thomas dead at 92 LOS ANGELES He was the insti tutional memory for the movies at The Associated Press and a passage for the world to a Hollywood both longed for and long gone. Bob Thomas, who died Friday at his Encino, Calif., home at age 92, started reporting when Clark Gable was a mid dle-aged king, Bette Davis was in her big-eyed prime, and Kirk Douglas and Lauren Bacall were emerging stars. Independent movies were a rarity during the studio-controlled era and celebrity gossip was dispensed by rival columnists Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons rather than Internet sites. Thomas is survived by his wife of 67 years, Patricia; daughters Nancy Thomas, Janet Thomas and Caroline Thomas; and three grandchildren.Obamas Funny or Die skit over 15 million hits NEW YORK President Barack Obamas appearance on the Between Two Ferns satirical online talk show this week has reached 15 million views almost at Justin Bieber levels. The website Funny or Die said Friday that Obamas interview with Zach Galifianakis, posted Tuesday, will like ly beat Biebers record of 17.8 million views for the show. The pop singers appearance was posted in September. The presidents appearance to per suade young people to sign up for health insurance is a key moment for the Internet, much like Franklin Roosevelts fireside chats were for radio and the Kennedy-Nixon debate for television, said Dick Glover, CEO of the comic web site started by Will Ferrell. It truly validates that it is an incredi bly valuable medium for the president, he said. For his part, Obama told Ryan Seacrest in an interview that he figured hed reached his target audience when his daughter Malia was excited that hed done the interview when he told her at the dinner table. Shes seen most of the Between Two Ferns posts, he said. Galifianakis act is to ask his guest hostile or inappropriate questions. But Obama said he seemed nervous at the White House taping. He was looking around at all the Secret Service guys with guns and think ing, I wonder what happens if I cross the line? the president said. Obama will have a way to go to beat Funny or Dies record of 81 million views for a video posted in 2007, show ing Ferrell being harassed by a pint-sized landlord. Now that Galifianakis has interviewed Obama, whos next on the Between Two Ferns wish list? (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is certainly up there, Glover said.

In addition, infrastruc ture development just outside the roughly 2,600-acre site is progressing according to plan, con sidering a recent agree ment between Columbia County, Plum Creek and the U.S. Forest Service. Following a land swap agreement with Plum Creek and the USFS, stakeholders plan to con struct a rail spur within the boundaries of Osceola National Forest. The USFS is in the pro cess of having the land cleared for construction and, according to Plum Creek representatives, should have the bureaucrat ic process completed within eight to 12 months as the federal agency follows due diligence procedures out lined by the 1969 National Environmental Policy Act (biological/cultural sur veys, public hearings, etc.). The originally-proposed site for the rail spur was delayed several months until the USFS could find a new location that would not disrupt a fragile pop ulation of red-cockaded woodpeckers. The county and Plum Creek hope the land will make full use of its impend ing magnet site designa tion as part of JAXPORTs Foreign Trade Zone, espe cially as Jacksonville con tinues to push for a port dredging to accommodate an influx of trade vessel once the Panama Canal is finally widened sometime next year. Developers plan to hype up the sites proximity to nearby CSX rail lines and the neighboring Gateway Airport, which could effec tively turn the site into a logistics park, or inland port, as well.

Barker, who served time in a Tennessee prison for rapes committed in 1997, 1998 and 1999, was released from custo dy in 2009, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation website. The Tennessee Department of Corrections website does not indicate how long he served and officials here did not immediately know. According to the TBI website, Barker, classified as a violent offender, was on probation as recently as Dec. 12, 2013. The Tennessee DOC site listed Barkers supervision status as inactive. It is not known if Barker, who did not have a valid drivers license, was at liberty to travel out of Tennessee, according to Craig Strickland, LCPD public information officer. There were no warrants for his arrest, Strickland said. Barkers ties to Lake City are unclear. Strickland said there was reasoning for him being here, but the [Florida Department of Law Enforcement] is working with that now. The FDLE is looking into the motivations for the things that happened last night, he added, but declined to elaborate. Barkers brother, who was riding with him, was unharmed. The man, who police declined to identify, was not charged with a crime and is returning home. Through assistance of the Columbia County Sheriffs Office victims advocate, Hope Crawford, and Sandy Tice at Chances For Children, the brother was given a bus ticket back to Tennessee, Strickland said. The auto safety and DUI checkpoint began at 8:20 p.m. Friday. Westbound traffic was diverted into the Lake City Professional Plaza on US 90 West. The vehicle in front of Barkers had just been released at 11:49 p.m. when Lee approached Barkers black 2012 Dodge pickup, Strickland said. The pickup was registered to Barker, according to information posted on the TBI website. Strickland said it is not known whether Barker was under the influence of alco hol or drugs due to the brief nature of the encoun ter. His body has been sent to the medical examiners officer for autopsy and toxi cology tests. Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister, who was on the scene, said he had not been briefed on the case by FDLE as of press time, but expected to be shortly. Siegmeister said he called FDLE to the scene. Most of the officers there are all witnesses and they cant interview them selves, he said. Siegmeister said a grand jury will determine if the shooting was justified. I present all killings whether they be mur der, justified or with law enforcement they all go before a grand jury, he said. If someone dies, bad guy or not, I think I owe it to the public to take it in front of a grand jury. Lee, employed at LCPD since June 2010, works as the departments Crime Prevention Specialist. He will be placed on administrative leave per department policy, Strickland said. The Florida Highway Patrol and the Perry Police Departments DUI Enforcement Unit were working with LCPD during the DUI enforcement detail, he said.

We have adults, par ents, grandparents and people from different orga nizations that came to help and support what these children are starting to learn in middle school that water is so important that weve got to be able to protect that resource, she said. The event, which began at 9 a.m. and lasted until noon, featured close to a dozen booths, all designed to show participants what role they can play in water conservation. Our goal is that peo ple have a chance to visit the education center thats right here at the south entrance so that they see that resource is here all year long, Johannesen said. This is our way of letting them know whats going on here at the park and our way of teaching them something about the importance of water. Were hoping well see more stu dents encouraging their families to come out to the park and enjoy it during their off time during the summer months, and at the same time being able to take home the message to their families to reduce the amount of wastes, learn to recycle the items they use everyday and realize how much water it takes to just make the things they use day in and day out. If they can cut back on it, just a little bit, its going to make a differ ence in the long run. The program was sponsored through a $5,000 Department of Environment Protection grant regional mini-grant. The grant allowed teacher training and design, devel opment and implementa tion of the water protection plan through the event. Stephanie Bundy, an AP Science teacher at the high school, said Saturdays event fits with the program because the students have already learned about the water cycle and they were given the opportunity to explain it to people at the event. Michelle Faul, a Columbia City area resi dent, said she learned about the importance of water by attending the event. From what Ive seen of the event, it was very interesting, she said. I did not understand how much water actually went into the food that we eat, so this was very interest ing. WATERContinued From 1A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com The sound of bowling balls crashing against pins competed with laughter and conversation Saturday at Lake City Bowl during an annual community fundraiser. The 21st Annual CARC-Advocates for Citizens with Disabilities Bowl-A-Thon drew a large crowd and a number of teams to the facility with hopes of raising money for local programs to help the physically and mentally challenged. Stephen Bailey, CARC-Advocates for Citizens With Disabilities executive direc tor, said there were 26 teams competing in this years fundraiser. We had an excellent turnout of community support for our annual bowl-a-thon, he said. Bailey, said there was no specific fund raising goal, but noted that all 16 lanes were filled for the 1-3 p.m. session of the fundraiser and more than half the lanes were filled for the 3-4:30 p.m. session. The teams bowled two games each. Sherry Bush, Columbia Bank mar keting coordinator, said she and several other bank employees felt it was import ant to take part in the annual fundraiser. Columbia Bank had four teams, 20 employ ees, participate in the event. We think its an awesome opportunity to join in raising funds for CARCs disabled citizens and its a chance for us to be out in our community and bring all our team together, she said.

T he passing of former Governor Reubin Askew left a lonesome place against the Florida sky last week as our state lost one of the earliest and stron-gest advocates for government in the sunshine. While representing Northwest Florida in the State Senate in the 1960s, Governor Askew success-fully advocated for the prohibition against committees meeting without a quorum and for the elimination of voting by proxy. As Governor, Reubin Askew famously organized Floridas first successful citizen petition initiative, resulting in the adoption of the Sunshine Amendment, which was approved by nearly 80 percent of voters and instituted many of the ethics standards still in place today. Prior to our being sworn in as presiding officers of the House and Senate in the fall of 2012, Speaker Weatherford and I set a specific goal. During our tenure, we would work to raise the standard of con-duct among elected officials, to improve Floridas reputation as the government in the sunshine state, and to review, update, clarify and improve existing ethics and trans-parency laws. Last year, the House and Senate worked in a bipartisan, bicam-eral fashion to build on Governor Askews legacy through the passage of ethics reform legislation that places elected officials financial disclosures online, provides the Commission on Ethics with more authority and requires state officers to abstain from voting on matters that benefit them directly. The 2013 legislation also requires ethics training for constitutional officers, places greater restrictions on public employment while in office, and prohibits officials from accepting gifts from political committees. During the 2014 legislative session, supported by Floridas First Amendment Foundation, the Senate is prepared for a floor vote on a bipartisan legislative pro-posal to substantially amend public records and public meetings laws by clarifying how the public may access records and how agencies should respond. This legislation, Senate Bill 1648, brings additional transparency to organizations that accept membership fees from the government and to businesses with government contracts, and requires agencies to appropriately train their employees regarding Floridas pub-lic records laws. Additionally this session, Speaker Weatherford and I included in our joint agenda, Work Plan 2014, sev-eral proposals to further extend eth-ics and open government reforms. Now entering the third week of session, with bipartisan support in our respective chambers, we have already made significant headway. First, we dusted off the law requiring lobbyist compensation audits, passed in 2005 but never enforced. It is an important part of open government to know who is spending how much on whom to advocate for public policy positions. A joint committee established scope of work for these audits, which will begin for quarterly reports filed this year. Next, to address the issue of legislative residency, raised at vari-ous times by both parties, on the first day of session, the legislature passed a joint rule that will explic-itly set forth what residency means and how and by whom the residen-cy rule is enforced. Now ready for a vote on the Senate floor, Senate Bill 846 extends specific provisions within the Code of Ethics, such as anti-nepotism provisions, the voting conflict standards, and post-employment lobbying restrictions, to statutorily created quasi-governmental entities, like the Florida Clerk of Courts, Enterprise Florida, and Citizens Property Insurance. Under this pro-posal, Direct Support Organizations (DSOs) and Citizen Support Organizations (CSOs) would be required to adopt their own Code of Ethics at least as stringent as the states, elected municipal officers, like constitutional officers, would be required to complete four hours of ethics training annually, and the Commission on Ethics would be given the authority to investigate individuals who refuse to file their annual financial disclosure. A second proposal, Senate Bill 1194, requires each DSO or CSO to annually submit a report to their parent agency. The report will then be available on the agency website. The legislation also creates a five-year sunset review provision for laws creating or authorizing each DSO or CSO in existence on July 1, 2014, and for any such orga-nization created or authorized in the future. DSOs and CSOs often perform the traditional functions of gov-ernment. They receive taxpayer funds. They operate under the endorsement of government. They represent government officials and government interests. For better or worse, their activities become synonymous with government. 2014 ethics legislation will increase trans-parency and accountability within statutorily-created CSOs and DSOs, so we can ensure Florida taxpay-ers that entities which are in some cases indistinguishable from gov-ernment have the proper oversight of government. Senate Bill 1194 has one stop left before the Senate floor, and Im hopeful that this bill, along with SB 1648 and SB 648, will receive bipartisan, bicameral sup-port. Despite the hard work and best intentions of elected officials, the only perfect laws were the 10 Moses brought down from the mountain. So I agree with another former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, who is fond of saying, reform is never finished, success is never final. My hope is that when we close the books on this session, we can tell Floridians we did our part, and in this small way we can uphold the great legacy of govern-ment in the sunshine started by our friend Reubin Askew. May he rest in peace.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org T here is a ray of hope for stronger public records laws in Florida as we recognize Sunshine Week, an annual event that calls attention to the importance of open govern-ment and often rings the alarm bell to warn of attempts to keep public records secret. The Senate will consider a bill this week that would make a series of positive changes to ensure that public records are available and affordable. Credit Senate President Don Gaetz for moving forward with reforms reinforcing the spirit of the states long tradition of openness. The legislation, SB 1648, would broaden the public records law to require foundations or associations that accept dues from public agencies to open their fina ncial and membership records that are related to the publ ic agency or are generally available to members. That would make it easier for taxpayers to better understand t he relationship between government and private groups that may be acting on its behalf or carrying out governm ent functions. Too often, it is far too difficult for t axpayers to trace how their money flows from government to priv ate groups and hold those groups accountable for work t hey perform that they claim is in the publics interest Private contractors that have contracts to perform government functions already are required to make reco rds relating to that work public, but they can be uncoo perative about producing them. The legislation would re quire contractors to notify the public agency before deny ing a public records request or if the contractor is abou t to be sued for failure to produce public records.... But the greatest impact of the legislation could be a new requirement that all public employees who deal with public records requests undergo training about the public records law. Too often, local and state gove rnment workers deny access to public records because they are uninformed about the law, not because they are intentionally trying to hide public documents. The news is not all good from Tallahassee, as lawmakers annually chip away at public records under the guise of security or privacy concerns. One bad proposal sponsored by Sen. Jack Latvala and Rep. Ed Hooper, both Clearwater Republicans, would exempt from the public record email addresses collected by county tax collectors in order to send tax notices.... Another bad bill, HB 481 by Rep. Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, would keep secret the dates of birth listed on voter registration lists. That would undercut the ability of the news media and other outside groups to spot voter fraud. Gov. Rick Scott, who once offered great promise in promoting open government, has been a disappoint-ment. He pledged to make easily available on the Internet his emails and those of his staff, but Sun burst has been a bust because of time delays and his admi nistrations efforts to avoid email. A promising effor t by the Senate to make public more state financial records in a searchable form collapsed when lawmakers handed off the task to the governor, who refused to accept it. ... The Senates proposed improvements to the public records law are encouraging. But as always, there are other attempts to keep Floridians in the dark that law-makers should reject.

By BRANDON LARRABEEThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Despite all the action underway during the legislative session over the last week, the Capitol seemed like a place stuck in past decades. The death of former Gov. Reubin Askew, one of the most important figures in Florida history, triggered nostalgia for the days when the teetotaling chief executive worked to safeguard the environment, repair scandal-tarnished courts and open government business to the public. Askew passed away on the same day that the Florida Supreme Court threw out a medical malpractice law approved by the Legislature 11 years ago and subject to controversy ever since. Both events came a couple of days after former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, who first ran for statewide office in 2006, once again stood before voters, this time in a special congressional election that was instead won by Republican lobbyist David Jolly. And while the Legislature spent the week on present and future concerns, GOP lawmakers devoted much of their time to discussing one of the partys golden oldie issues: Tax cuts. The legislative session isnt history yet not even close but the week was a reminder that even once it has ended, its effects can be felt for years.Remembering AskewWith the exception of the late Gov. LeRoy Collins, Askew is seen as perhaps the most influential politician in Florida history. The prim, almost prudish Democrat was first elected in 1970, defeating incumbent Republican Claude Kirk, the first GOP governor in the modern era. Askew won again in 1974, becoming the first governor in Florida history to be elected to successive four-year terms. (Many, though not all, earlier governors were barred from running for more than one term, or could only run for two-year terms, depending on the Constitution at the time.) Florida was in the midst of a population and development boom when Askew took over as chief exec utive. The state was still grappling with racial tensions prompted by the U.S. Supreme Court decision that put an end to school segregation. The devoutly religious Askew, born in Muskogee, Okla., was on the opposite side of many other Southern politicians, as well as many of his Pensacola constituents, in his call for racial reconciliation. Askew clashed with conservatives over a straw poll opposing school busing, offering his own proposal asking voters if they wanted to keep schools integrated. Neither was binding, and both were approved. The governor led a drive to reform the states judicial system after two state Supreme Court justices were forced out of office. He successfully pushed for a constitutional amendment requiring public officials to disclose information about their financial affairs and forcing government records into the sunshine. On the environment, Askew backed legislation creating water management districts and requiring local comprehensive planning. He was a visionary. He saw issues, whether they were in areas of racial fairness or educational opportunities or environmental protection, in a generational perspective, not just whats going to be the best position for the next election. He led by his personal example and by the wisdom of his ideas and the strength of his passions, said former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, a Democrat who also served as governor.Medical law ruling disappointingAfter more than a decade of legislative and legal battles, the Florida Supreme Court had the final say on a 2003 law limiting damages in medical-malpractice lawsuits. It was unconstitutional, the justices said in a 5-2 ruling. The court sided with the family of a Panhandle woman who died of complications after giving birth. In doing so, justices also sided indirectly with plaintiffs lawyers who have fiercely opposed limits on so-called non-economic damages. Physicians and insurance companies, who have made a priority of reining in medical-malpractice lawsuits, came out the losers. At the present time, the cap on non-economic damages serves no purpose other than to arbitrarily punish the most grievously injured or their surviving family members, Justice R. Fred Lewis wrote. The two most conservative justices dissented. This court has previously recognized the existence of a medical malpractice insurance crisis as a legitimate state interest, Chief Justice Ricky Polston wrote. Further, it is undisputed that increasing the quality, availability, and affordability of health care for Floridians is a legitimate state interest. And the Legislatures policy choice of enacting a cap on non-economic damag es in medical malpractice cases is rationally related to these state interests. The ruling stemmed from the February 2006 death of 20-year-old Michelle McCall, who gave birth to a son at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center but died days later because of complications from severe bleeding. Republicans, who have often warred with the trial bar over the years and pushed the caps through the Legislature in 2003, were predictably upset by Thursdays decision. Disappointing, as usual, from them, Senate Rules Chairman John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, said when asked about the justices ruling. But well see what we have to do to address it.Jolly comes out on topWhile much of the states political and business establishment had been focused on the legislative session underway in Tallahassee, the national media and a handful of big-money groups were zeroing in on another corner of the state: Pinellas County, where Sink was attempting a comeback and Jolly was looking to move from K Street to the U.S. Capitol. In the end, Jolly won the contentious and expensive special election on Tuesday to replace his former boss, the late Republican Congressman C.W. Bill Young. The swingy district, which Young and President Barack Obama both won in 2008 and 2012, was monitored by strategists and analysts looking for tea leaves about the November elections that will decide who controls Congress during Obamas last two years in office. As usual, the winning side portrayed the victory as a signal about what would happen almost eight months from now. Tonight, one of Nancy Pelosis most prized can didates was ultimately brought down because of her unwavering support for ObamaCare, and that should be a loud warning for other Democrats running coast to coast, U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said in a press release after the vote.More money, tax cutsAt a Wednesday meeting in an obscure corner of the Knott Building, state economists huddled and predicted that the state would take in about $150 million more over the next 16 months than current estimates called for. It didnt take long for House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, to decide where the money would go. Obviously, a lot of its going to be spent on tax cuts, he told reporters. Lawmakers had already set a goal of $500 million in reductions in taxes and fees, following a benchmark set by Gov. Rick Scott last year. That overall number isnt likely to change even with the new revenue figures, but it does give lawmakers more wiggle room. On Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Committee unanimously amended a proposal (SB 156) by Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, to reduce the vehicle registration fees. Under the revised proposal, motorists would potentially save between $20 and $25 per vehicle registra tion, depending on the size of the vehicle. The reduction would collectively save motorists about $309 million during the upcoming 2014-15 budget year, with the new rates going into effect Sept. 1, and about $395 million the following fiscal year, when they would be in effect for the full 12 months starting July 1. A similar House proposal (PCB 14-04) was unanimously backed Thursday by the House Finance and Tax Subcommittee, even as Democrats complained the reduction was more about getting Scott re-elected than fiscal policy. Other tax bills were also moving. The Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee on Monday unanimously supported a measure (SB 792) by Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami, that would lift sales taxes on clothes, school supplies and electronics for three days at the start of August. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER STATE SUNDAY, MARCH 16, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Our of ce is proud to welcome our new provider!WE ARE WOMEN, WE ARE MOTHERS, WE UNDERSTAND Daina Greene, MDBoard Certi ed Healthcare ProviderMarlene Summers, CNM SPECIALIZING IN: Womens health and Primary CareNew Patients WelcomeCall today for a personal appointment:386-755-0500449 SE Baya Drive Lake City, Florida 32025 www.dainagreenemd.com offering DaVinci Robotic Surgeries.Lauren Williams, ARNP (352) 335-7777We Accept Most Insurance We Accept Most Insurancewww.kidsonlydentalplace.comDr. Robert N.

activities in the Rodeo Kids Zone. Elizabeth Underwood said she first attended the local rodeo about two years ago and she planned to attend Friday and Saturday this year. She said she liked all the events and she liked the childrens area for her granddaughter. While the audience was excited about watching the rodeo competition, local par ticipants were also excited about having an opportunity to compete in front of their friends and families. Austin Barber, who attends Ranger College in Ranger, Texas, on a rodeo schol arship, is from Lake City and returned to compete in the team roping competition. Im looking forward to letting every body that lives around here see what I do, he said. Aaron Barber, Austins 16-year-old brother, said he also plans to participate in team roping. He said he likes the event because its challenging, with five minds the cow, your horse, your partners horse, you and your partner. Its really challenging because there are so many variables, he said. Its pret ty fun being in front of the home crowd and everybody who never gets to see what you do. Its giving them a shot to see you at your sport. Brandon Callen, also of Lake City, regis tered for the team roping competition also. Ive been team roping since I was a little boy and thats what I grew up doing, he said. Out here, its just about having everybody from our hometown come out and see what we do around here. Friday nights event also featured the crowning of the 2014 Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo Queens. Amy Kelly, 17, of Alachua was crowned 2014 Miss Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo. Im so extremely proud of me and my horse and I know my parents are proud, she said moments after leaving the arena. I just hope to be a great inspiration and role model to all the little cowgirls and cowboys out there and make Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo proud. Horsemanship skills are part of the pageant. Kelly, an 11th grader at Santa Fe High School, competed in the local barrel racing category last year, but this year entered the beauty pageant. I cant wait to do all the activities as queen, like cutting the ribbon for the fair and the annual Smokin Pig BBQ Fest and be really involved in the parades, she said. I want to be a good inspiration. I love the kids and being looked up to is just an amazing feeling.

Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MARCH 16, 2014 3B By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs junior varsity baseball team ral-lied for four runs in the sixth inning to post a 7-5 home win over Middleburg High on Friday. Brock Edge burned the right fielder for a two-run triple with two outs in the sixth to put the Tigers back on top. Jonathan Hardin singled in Edge for an insurance run. Tyson Ellis started the rally with a lead-off walk. Witt Register singled with one out and Chase Cervantes followed with an RBI-single to set the stage. Columbia had squandered a three-run lead up to that point, as the Broncos had to replace their starter with an injury after three batters into the game. Edge and Hardin walked and pulled a double steal. While Harrison Shubert was walking, Edge scored on a wild pitch. Hardin scored on an error on Wesley Blakelys ground ball and James Shimmel walked to load the bases. Register was hit by a pitch to bring in Shubert three runs with no hits. Garrett Finnells single in the second inning was Columbias only hit until the sixth. Middleburg scored two runs in the fourth inning on two hits, two errors and a sac fly. Zach Huskisson hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning and the Broncos added another run in the sixth. Shubert relieved Blakely with one out and two on base in the sixth inning and got the last five outs, three on strikeouts, for the win. Blakely struck out four and did not walk a batter in 5 13 innings.

The game was as tight as the score says with the Broncos tying it up in the top of the seventh inning and Columbia High push-ing across the winning run in the bottom half on a play at the plate. Dalton Mauldin walked to lead of the seventh inning and Tyler Myrick bunted. Both were safe when the throw to second pulled the fielder off the bag. After an out Alex Milton hit a scorcher that the first baseman could only knock down and the bases were loaded. Middleburg pulled in the infield and Jordan Culp hit a ground ball to the third baseman. He stepped on the bag to take away the force at home and threw to the plate with Mauldin sliding in safely. It was high intensity, a game you like to coach in, CHS head coach Heath Phillips said. We came out a little flat tonight, but picked up the intensity. Columbia scored a run in the first inning. Myrick singled with one out and stole second and third. With two outs, Dylan Davis entered as a courtesy runner for the catcher and notched the run scored when Miltons ground ball was booted. It looked like that run would be enough as Vaughn opened up with four perfect innings. He finished with a three-hitter with one walk and eight strikeouts. Caleb stepped up again, Phillips said. He threw 75 pitches and got a com-plete game. That is what we are trying to do throw strikes a lot and let our defense work. Middleburg (4-6, 2-4) small-balled its way to a run in the fifth inning. Kevin Heminger singled to open the inning and Pearson McMahan walked. Brent Stokes bunted the runners up and Cyle Miller sent in the run with a ground out to second. Columbia got the run gifted right back in the bot-tom of the fifth inning. Steven Rendel started with an infield hit. Mauldin walked and Levi Hollingsworth was hit by a pitch with two outs. Milton worked a walk to score Rendel. Vaughn got the first two batters in the seventh inning on called strikes. Stokes singled and moved into scoring position when the ball skidded under the fielders glove. The Broncos made Columbia pay with a pinch-hit single to score the tying run. Nathan Heminger went six innings for the Broncos with three hits, two earned runs, three walks and nine strikeouts. McMahan relieved and got two outs, one a KO. Columbia (10-2, 2-0) opens a string of three dis-trict games next week with a trip to Gainesville High on Monday. Game time is 6:30 p.m. Orange Park High and Oakleaf High are on deck. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs softball team ran its record to 14-0 with two more wins late last week. The Lady Tigers beat Palatka High, 5-1, at home on Friday, following a 16-0 shellacking of Suwannee High in Live Oak on Thursday. Kayli Kvistad and Kamdyn Kvistad each had two RBIs against Palatka and Tatum Morgan led off the third inning with a home run. Columbia scored one run without a hit in the first inning. Lacey King walked, stole second base, took third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly by Kayli Kvistad. The Lady Tigers added two runs in the second inning. Brittney Morgan was hit by a pitch and stole second base. After a walk to Kayli Kvistad, Kamdyn Kvistad doubled off the top of the fence in left field to score both runners. In the fourth inning, Brittney Morgan walked, stole second base and scored on a single by Kayli Kvistad. Ashley Shoup pitched five innings with four hits and five strikeouts. She gave way to Erin Anderson after two hits in the sixth inning and Anderson got out of the inning with Palatka scoring its only run. Columbia spanked Suwannee, a ranked team in its own right, on the strength of four home runs. Kayli Kvistad had two dingers with five RBIs and three runs scored. Hollianne Dohrn had a home run, three RBIs and scored two runs. Caleigh McCauley had a three-run shot. Anderson had a pair of doubles with two RBIs and two runs scored.

T he middle of March is typically a great time to fish, both fresh and saltwater. For the saltwater fans, the inshore and near-shore bites start catching fire. For the freshwater fans, the big female largemouth bass begin their annual spawning. Typically.Thanks to Punxsutawney Phil our weather has had more ups and downs than a rollercoaster at Six Flags. Theres been no consistent pattern. We get 3-4 days of beautiful weather, and then a streak of cold and rain. If you think youre confused, imagine what the fish are thinking. Heres spring, here comes the bait, actually wait, were going to get another freeze, worry about warmth and forget about food. Theyre as confused as a batter facing Pedro Martinez in his prime. Even more confusing are the drastic weather changes in just a single day. If youve ever fished in North Florida during March, youve had this experience. Its really cold; you wake up, and put on 17 layers of clothes. Your crew looks like a boat full of Sasquatches in anticipation of the freezing daybreak boat ride. En route to the first fishing spot, everyone huddles around the boat windshield like its a campfire. Your eyes start watering like a pack of sorority sisters watching The Notebook, and your lips get more chapped than a baboons derrire playing musical chairs. Fast forward to early afternoon. Now its hot. And now you have to figure out how to stuff two tons of clothes into a dry storage bin, a cooler (or two), an empty live well, the anchor well, and some oversized Tupperware you stole from the kitchen. Its a classic North Florida whacky half-winter, half-summer day, where the temperature rises 40 degrees in six hours. Luckily for us, there is one species thats not overly worried about the zigzagging thermometer. If our waters gave out monthly beauty pageant winners, this months winner would be Miss Sheepshead. It wouldnt be close. Shed sweep the swimsuit, evening gown, and the talent (cough) competition. Shed make Miss USA, Miss America and even Honey Boo Boos mom jealous. Anglers look forward to the annual spawning of sheepshead from Cedar Key to Keaton Beach. You dont have to travel to the Middle Grounds; in fact, if you can find the right patch of hard bottom or rocks, they can be caught inside of 10 miles. Some popular public reefs include Hedemon Reef off Suwannee and Seahorse Reef off of Cedar Key. Several more artificial reefs in the 30-foot areas will host the monster females that begin spawning. In order to entice them to eat, go natural. Fiddler crabs are the filet mignon, and shrimp are the prime rib. If theyre feeding, theyre not picky. If theyre being finicky, go light. Lighten your leader, lighten your weights or jig head, and you can literally feel them picking the shells off the shrimp. If you want the perfect storm of ideal fishing competitions, fish the outgoing tide this week, following todays full moon. I fish for sport, but I also fish for meat. If you are looking for quality eating, Google poor mans lobster, and youll think that sheepshead finger youre dipping in butter tastes like a $30 lobster tail from Red Lobster. Well, almost anyways!

Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MARCH 16, 2014 5B Gators wear down VolsJASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFloridas Michael Frazier II (20) brings the trap to Kentuc ky guard Andrew Harrison in the ODome on March 8. The Gators play the Wildcats today for the SEC tournament cham pionship. PAUL NEWBERRYAssociated PressATLANTA Even facing its biggest deficit since November, No. 1 Florida never panicked. The Gators know their defense will never let them down. Swarming relentlessly in the second half, Florida rallied from 10 points down and defeated Tennessee 56-49 in the semifinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament Saturday. Patric Young scored 16 points and Scottie Wilbekin added 14, but this victory had nothing to do with what happened at the offen-sive end. It was all about what Tennessee faced when it had the ball after halftime. The Volunteers made only 5-of20 shots with 11 turnovers, and things really got grim down the stretch as they were stifled time and time again making just one of their last 11 attempts from the field, while turning it over five times. Everywhere they turned, it seemed like a Florida player was waiting, ready to take a swipe at the ball. We didnt really switch anything up, Wilbekin said. We just tried to go into an extra gear. Florida (31-2) extended its school-record winning streak to 25 in a row after being down 35-28 at halftime. This group has a resiliency and a competitiveness, coach Billy Donovan said. We have our faults. Were not perfect. But Ive never walked off the court say-ing, Wow, these guys didnt get after it, they didnt compete. Tennessee (21-12) had a chance to post its most impressive win of the season. Now, its postseason fate rests in the hands of the NCAA selec-tion committee. The Gators, improving to 20-0 against SEC opponents, advanced to face Kentucky in the champi-onship game today. Ive seen a lot of teams. Ive watched a lot of teams from afar, Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said. Theyre one of the best defensive teams in the country. Jordan McRae led Tennessee with 15 points, while Jarnell Stokes had 13 points and seven rebounds. The final minutes were marred by a number of questionable calls, including a technical on Tennessees Jeronne Maymon for disputing that he threw a shoulder. It was the fifth foul on Maymon, knocking him out of the game with more than 4 12 minutes remaining after he scored 10 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Then with just over a minute left, there was a long break while the officials went to the replay to rule on a potential flagrant foul against Wilbekin, even though it wasnt even clear if he touched a Tennessee player while swinging his arms high. I think my elbow nicked his chin a little bit, Wilbekin said with a slight grin. He did a good job of selling it. It didnt matter at the end. The Gators defeated Tennessee for the third time this season, each one following the same plot line. The Vols held their own in the first half, only to get dominated by Florida in the second. The cumulative secondhalf score in the three games was Florida 103, Tennessee 60 including a 28-14 edge on Saturday. Despite the loss, the Vols are confident of their NCAA chanc-es based on one of the nations toughest schedules and an RPI in the low 40s. I feel like the statement was already made before coming into this game, Stokes said. In the first half, at least, Tennessee certainly looked wor-thy of a spot in the 68-team field. The Vols were the first team to lead Florida by double digits since the first of its two losses, at Wisconsin on Nov. 12. Wilbekin cut the deficit to seven at halftime with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer, but Florida still went to the locker room facing its second-biggest deficit of the season at the midway point. Not that the Gators were ruffled by being in that position it was the eighth time they had trailed at the break, and theyve now come back to win six in a row. I told the guys at halftime, Weve been in this situation before, Wilbekin said. We know what it takes to win in the second half. Tennessee should know. The Vols stayed right with Florida before halftime in both regular-season meetings, only to get blown out 67-41 in Gainesville and fall 67-58 in Knoxville. Wilbekin, Floridas senior leader, didnt have his usual stel-lar game though he did go 3 of 7 from 3-point range. He was definitely off in the first half, throwing up an airball on an off-balance shot from the baseline and barely grazing the rim with another attempt. But his defense was there all the way.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA rea softball players are dusting off their gloves, cleaning their cleats and swinging their bats as they prepare for a tournament to raise money for cancer treatment and research. The Second Annual Relay For Life Softball Tournament will take place Saturday, March 29 at the Southside Recreation Complex, 1963 SW Bascom Norris Drive. The first game is set to start at 7 a.m. The tournament is double elimination with a three-game guarantee. Teams will be placed in brackets on a first-come basis. The team registration fee is $170 per team and event organizers have room to field a few more teams. I think we have nine or ten openings left, said Aimee Richer, Relay For Life Softball Tournament organizer. The tournament field will be capped at 16 teams. Last year we raised a little over $1,100. So, it was pretty good for our first year, Richer said. Richer is a member of the Corrections Corporation of America team and was also involved in last years tournament. This year the fundraising goal for the CCA team is $2,500, she said. The proceeds we raise go to the Relay For Life event for Columbia County and the American Cancer Society. Richer said she supports the American Cancer Society and the work it does with the proceeds for research and cancer awareness. There are too many people whose lives are touched by cancer and I would like to see it elimi-nated from the face of the planet, she said. For more information contact Richer at (386) 288-7861.

Rule targets for-profit colleges over student debtBY PHILIP ELLIOTTAssociated PressWASHINGTON The for-profit college industry says it will vigorously oppose pro-posed regulations by the Obama admin-istration designed to protect students at for-profit colleges from amassing huge debt they cant pay off. The proposed regulations would penalize career oriented programs that produce graduates without the training needed to find a job with a salary that will allow them to pay off their debt. Schools, for-profit or not, that dont comply would lose access to the federal student aid programs. Career-training programs offer millions of Americans an opportunity they des-perately need to further their education and reach the middle class, Education Secretary Arne Duncan told reporters Thursday. Today, too many of these programs fail to provide students with the training that they need at taxpayers expense and the cost to these students futures. If finalized, the regulations would take effect in 2016. In 2012, the for-profit colleges convinced a judge that similar regulations were too arbitrary. Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities, said in a state-ment that the proposed regulations would deny millions of students the opportu-nity for higher earnings. His association argues that the regulations would have a long-term impact on the nations ability to address workforce demands and improve the economy, and he called the proposed regulations discriminatory and puni-tive. For-profit programs are popular among non-traditional students, some of who have been laid off during the economic down-turn. The government should be in the business protecting opportunity not restricting it, Gunderson said. He said no decision has been made on whether more legal action will be taken. The administration has long sought to block federal student aid from programs that do not prepare students for gainDEBT continued on 2C1CColumbia Inc. n $nnrr*n"!&$'&!n!")n*"'$n$&$ !&n%(!%nn!n(n "$n"##"$&'!&*n&"n$")n(!nn*"'n$*n(n!nn%)$n&%n%*n&"n&$!%$n&n&"n!n)$n"!%nn!n!n$(!nn&nr&"rn'!n*"'n%$( nnnrnnnrnrnrn rr Steve Jones, CFPFinancial Advisor 2929 West U S Highway 90Suite 114Lake City, FL 32055386-752-3847 Robert Woodard, AAMS Financial Advisor 148 N Marion AveLake City, FL 32055386-752-1215 Jay Poole, AAMS Financial Advisor 846 S W Baya DriveLake City, FL 32025386-752-3545 But the April 15 Deadline for IRA Contributions Isnt.You have only so many years to prepare forretirement.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MARCH 16-22, 2014 ful employment in a rec-ognized occupation. The programs covered under the proposed regulations include nearly all programs at for-profit schools, as well as certificate programs at public and private non-profit institutions, such as community colleges, according to the Education Department. Duncan said for-profit colleges can receive up to 90 percent of their revenue from federal financial aid programs. If blocked from participating, some could be forced to close, he said. Some of these programs whether public, private or for-profit empower students to succeed by pro-viding high-quality educa-tion and career training. But many of these programs, particularly those at for-profit colleges, are failing to do so, the Education Department said in a fact sheet. On Capitol Hill, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, the chair-man of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, said he was concerned that the pro-posed regulations dont go far enough in protecting stu-dents. But Republicans criticized the administrations actions and said low-income students would be dispro-portionately affected. At a time when demand is great and the stakes are high, government should focus on increasing edu-cation opportunities, not unjustly penalizing insti-tutions that are trying to prepare students and workers for a changing economy, said Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee. The latest proposal closely follows those that were struck down in 2012 by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras, but it makes technical changes tailored to the courts concerns that the benchmarks were arbitrary. We tried to base that on expert research and mort-gage industry standards for acceptable levels of debt, Duncan said. For instance, a typical graduate should not pay more than 20 percent of his or her discretionary income to repaying loans. The pre-vious regulations sought a limit of 30 percent of that income going to repayment. The proposed regulation also says graduates should not be paying more than 8 percent of their total income to student loans. The department previously sought a 12 percent cap. The proposed regulations also set a default rate of no more than 30 percent. In many cases, students who graduate from Education Department-approved programs would keep a greater percentage of their paychecks in their pockets. Education Department reports show for-profit pro-grams account for about 13 percent of all college stu-dents but 46 percent of all loan defaults. At the same time, 22 percent of for-profit stu-dent borrowers defaulted on their loans within three years. At public colleges, that number is 13 percent of borrowers. And for schools that the Education Department could review, 72 percent of for-profit colleges produce graduates who earn less than high school dropouts. Duncan said the proposed regulations target those who are both failing students and taxpayers. The public has 60 days to comment on the proposed regulations. AP Education Writer Kimberly Hefling contrib-uted to this report. DEBT: Colleges targeted Continued From Page 1C Spring break: Here come the tourists By MELISSA NELSON-GABRIELAssociated PressPENSACOLA From portable beach jails to extra emergency medi-cal staffing, Florida is coping with the annual but not altogether unwelcome invasion otherwise known as spring break. But if your impression of spring break from MTV and Girls Gone Wild is of an unscripted, chaotic mess of beaches, booze and biki-nis, youre only partly right. The states Gulf Coast does experience an onslaught of thousands of teen-agers and college students every spring. But the fact is, the bulk of spring tourism to the state is fami-lies, said Paul Phipps, spokesman for Visit Florida. And this year, Phipps expects March and April to break Florida tourism records because of pent-up demand created by unusually cold and snowy weather in much of the country. January and February numbers were up over last year and we expect that trend to continue, he said. More than half the states spring break visitors will head to theme parks and other attractions in Orlando. This is the third-most popu-lar time of year to visit Orlando after peak summer and Christmastime, according to Mark Jaronski, spokes-man for Visit Orlando. Advance hotel bookings for March and April already indicate a record spring sea-son for the area, he said, despite the lack of discounts this time of year. In Panama City Beach, officials are preparing for a different demo-graphic: thousands of teens and 20-somethings. Dan Rowe, president of the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, expects 250,000 to 300,000 college students during March. The city brings in dozens of additional law enforcement staffers from outside agencies to handle the crowds, along with a mobile booking unit with a juvenile detention area. Panama City Beach Police Chief Drew Whitman, who has 20 years of experience with spring break law enforcement, said the mobile unit allows officers to enforce underage drinking and other violations with-out making the two-hour round trip from beach to county jail. The spike in law enforcement activity following a slow winter has already started. Between March 7 and March 12, Whitman said Panama City Beach made 211 arrests, most for underage drinking, public intoxi-cation, DUI and other spring break-related offenses, including one per-son charged with sexual assault, he said. And despite precautions and enforcement, tragedies happen. Rice University student Reny Jose went missing early March 3 after witness-es said he took LSD the previous evening at a beach house. Officials have been searching for him since. Another spring breaker died March 9 in a DUI-related crash. Whitman encourages commonsense safety for spring breakers like sticking together and keeping an eye on each other and an eye on drinks, so nobody can slip anything in them. The hotels have extra security staff, we have on our website infor-mation about how to enjoy spring break responsibly, and police walk the beaches and interact with the kids throughout the day to make sure that they are staying smart and to addresses situations before they occur, said Rowe, the convention and visitors bureau president. Even after spring break, Panama City Beach law enforcement stays busy through the summer with tens of thousands of visiting families and other tourists. Other beaches have fewer college-age spring breakers, but still expect crowds. Destin has long been a favorite destination for vacation-ers throughout the Southeast and expects crowds again this season. Another concern is beach safety in a region where rip currents claim lives from drowning every year. The beach is a lot of fun but it can be a dangerous place par-ticularly when people are drinking and there is rough surf, said Sgt. Jason Fulghum, who oversees beach patrols for the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office. Buck Lee, president of the Santa Rosa Island Authority, which over-sees Pensacola Beach, said officials monitor beach conditions and add life guards and beach patrols on the roughest days. Pensacola Beachs annual Mardi Gras Parade brought about 50,000 visitors to the beach on March 2, some 20,000 more than in 2013. Lee said the spike in parade attendance suggests a busy spring and summer tourist season. Tori Lellbach, 19, and Stefani Schrader, 19, university students from Lexington, Ky., chose Pensacola Beach as their spring break destina-tion because it is more laid back than Panama City Beach. It is not as crowded, Lellbach said. But the women and two other friends said safety is a top priority. We always stick together, look out for each other. That is what you have to do these days, Schrader said. Carlos and Mundy Fernandez chose Pensacola Beach because it was cheaper and less crowded than other Florida destinations while still providing a nice getaway for them and their sons, ages 11 and 15. This is a nice place for families, Mundy Fernandez said. We can enjoy the beach and keep the boys away from some of the spring break craziness with all the older college kids in some of the other places. 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Name That Company@Y\^Xe`e(0*-n_\edp]fle[\i jkfi\[g\Xelkj`ek_\YXZbj\Xkf]_`j ;f[^\#jlggcp`e^m\e[`e^dXZ_`e\j_\ `ejkXcc\[`enfibgcXZ\j%Kf[Xp#YXj\[`eG_`cX[\cg_`X#@dXc\X[\i`e]ff[# ]XZ`c`k`\jdXeX^\d\ekXe[le`]fidj# j\im`e^_\Xck_ZXi\`ejk`klk`fej#jZ_ffcj# jkX[`ldjXe[Ylj`e\jj\j`e))Zfleki`\j% @j\im\dfi\k_Xe,''d`cc`fed\XcjXeelXccp kf,d`cc`fejkl[\ekjXe[XdEfik_8d\i`ZXj cXi^\jk\dgcfp\if][`\k`k`Xej%@j\im\XY`cc`fe Zlgjf]Zf]]\\XeelXccp#kff% @nXj_,d`cc`fe gfle[jf]cXle[ip[X`cpXe[ilek_\cXi^\jk _flj\YfXkfg\iXk`fe`ek_\L%J%#kff%@\dgcfp ).'#'''g\fgc\^cfYXccp%N_fXd@6Know the answer?

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MARCH 16-22, 20144CBIZ
By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterS cience is all around us. Dont think so? Take a look at some recent Reporter articles from the front page of just one days edition (Tuesday, March 11): Honeybees holding their own (biol ogy, ecology, agricultural science) and Bundle back up: More cold weather coming (mete orology). Its a big part of our local economy, playing a role in health services, tourism on the Itchetucknee and Santa Fe rivers, agriculture, vet erinary medicine, com puter systems and ser vices, communications, and education. And its part of many of our political issues, including the debate over climate change and the fight over water rights and sup plies between North and Central Florida. In short, its everywhere. Thats the message that Fort White High School science teacher Rick Babston is trying to get across to his stu dents. Science isnt just out there in some labora tory, he says. Its part of everyday life. To prove his point, Babston often brings in articles like the ones mentioned above for class discussion. He also makes use of his skills as a professional photog rapher to show students things about their world that they might not have previously noticed. I like to be able to relate the things Im teaching to things Ive actually expe rienced, he explained. It also helps when I can relate science principles to things the students have seen or heard about. For instance, the near-vacuum inside a tornado is an example of Bernoullis principle that as the speed of a fluid increases, its pressure drops. (In physics, both gases and liquids are con sidered fluids.) Now in his ninth year at FWHS, Babston is in his fifth year of teaching earth and space science full-time. I actually start ed out teaching agricul tural science (in which he has a bachelors degree LIFE Sunday, March 16, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert Bridges754firstname.lastname@example.org F resh artichokes are a classic spring treat, but you can enjoy artichoke hearts all year long you can find them in the produce aisle, bagged and frozen, canned in water or marinated in jars. Did you know that the artichoke is techni cally a flower bud that hasnt bloomed yet? And the ancient Greeks and Romans considered them to be an aphrodisiac this persisted through the 16th century. Marilyn Monroe loved artichokes and in fact was crowned the first Queen of Artichokes in Castroville, California in 1947. These little gems have an earthy flavor with but tery texture that you can TASTE BUDDIES Genie Normanand Mary Kay HollingsworthTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com How bout artichoke hearts? TASTE continued on 4D A weed is a plant that grows in your landscape where it is not wanted (by you). A pest insect is one which harms the plants that you do want to grow. Although there are plenty of chemi cals that help reduce pests, many gardeners prefer a more environmental ly-friendly approach to con trolling pests, both weeds and insects. There are many practic es that can be used to con trol weeds such as hand pulling, cultivating, mulch ing and mowing. Desirable plants are less likely to be damaged and the costs involved in weed control can be reduced. To be suc cessful, however, you need to learn a little about the weeds you are combating. Cool or warm season annu als, perennials and hard to control plants with vegeta tive means of reproduction GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@u.edu March gardening Madness GARDEN continued on 4D Its scientific AVALYN HUNTER/ Special to the ReporterFort White High School science teacher Rick Babston with his pet bal l python, Slinky, who lives in a terrarium in the classroom.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MARCH 16, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I have been widowed for five years. I have a close friend, Louise, who was also close to my late husband. She promised him on his deathbed she would take care of me when he was gone. Well, she has taken it to the extreme. She became very controlling and didnt want me doing anything with out her. I went along with it to keep the peace until about a year ago, when I met a wonderful man Ill call Bill. Bill recently moved into my home. Louise says he has no right to live with me here because my late husband had it built and I have no right to let anyone else stay here. Now she refuses to visit. People have repeated to me some of the awful things she has called Bill. We have had many arguments over the hurtful things she has said in my presence. Bill feels bad about this. He hasnt said or done anything to deserve the treatment Louise is dishing out and has encouraged me to try and work it out. Any advice on how to handle this very stressful situation? WIDOW IN SALEM, N.J. DEAR WIDOW: Yes. Stop trying to appease Louise. She ahs gone beyond taking care of you and is trying to dictate the way you live your life. Bill means well, but you have already tried to get Louise to accept the sit uation. Because she refuses, perhaps its time to move on. DEAR ABBY: Im in a bind when it comes to hostess gifts. I know noth ing about wine and am not much interested in learning because most of my friends and I dont drink. I am also allergic to flowers and per fumes, so I would never give anyone flowers, soaps or can dles, because if I did I would have to leave the party early. This leaves me confused as to what is appropriate. Could I give a nice jar of high-qual ity spice or are there better options? IN THE DARK ABOUT HOSTESS GIFTS DEAR IN THE DARK: A box of assorted chocolates might be nice, if your hosts are sweet-eaters, or match ing smalland medium-sized picture frames, or a box of note cards and matching envelopes. However, unless you are certain the spice you select is one your hosts might use, I dont recom mend it as a house gift. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take care of anything you prom ised to do before heading out or you will face complaints and criti cism. You may be eager to partic ipate in functions or causes you believe in, but dont forget that home and family come first. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Offer a unique solution to a friend or community group, and you will be considered for a position that entails more clout and responsi bility. Put energy and enthusiasm into your plan and you will receive a physical and an emotional reward. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put the emphasis on love, status, reputation and turning what you enjoy doing into a profitable pas time. Dont let someones attitude get you down or stand between you and your goal. Emotional blackmail must not be allowed to interfere. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Spend time doing things with the ones you love. Fixing up your place will add to your comfort. Entertaining friends or family will bring greater stability to your core group. A unique change to your living arrangement will be benefi cial. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take an unusual approach to life. Participation will expand your out look regarding different cultures and countries. Dont limit what you can do because someone is putting demands on you. Take care of responsibilities and carry on with your plans. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotions will be uncontrollable, so you may as well share your thoughts and see what happens. Knowing where you stand can be liberating, even if it doesnt go as planned. Honesty is all you can offer, so let the truth be known. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Youll be working in overdrive. Your ability to get things done will impress onlookers. Socializing will help you display your finer qual ities and drum up personal and professional interest in what you have to offer. Love is on the rise. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Not everyone will have your best interests at heart. Listen to whats being said, but use your gut feeling when it comes to making a decision that will influ ence how you live or what to get involved in next. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make changes to your home or the way you live. Dont let emotional matters cost you when it comes to friendships. Getting along and being willing to com promise will help you persuade others to see and do things your way. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Personal investments will help to stabilize your life and your financial future. Find ways to ease your stress and improve your mental and physical health, but dont buy into a scheme that promises the impossible. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Study what others are doing and size up whats good for you and what isnt. Follow your instincts and head in a direction that offers you the type of activity, connections and monetary gains that will satisfy your needs. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be open about your feelings and your intentions. Look for greater stability in your relation ships. Broaden your interests to include things that you find moti vating and innovative. A change of heart is likely to affect your personal life. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Deathbed promise turns into a living nightmare Q Write Dear Abby at www.

energize with olive oil and garlic or with a squirt of lemon. They are low in fat and calories but have tons of fiber. They also offer up a pretty healthy dose of vitamins and antioxidants. Below are several of our favorite recipes using canned artichokes that we hope youll give a try. Italian Fried A. Hearts 2 eggs cup milk one 15 oz. can Artichoke Hearts, drained and quar tered 1 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs (can use panko as well) 2 cups oil for frying cup grated Parmesan cheese lemon slices Directions: Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy deep skillet to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Place seasoned bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip artichoke hearts in the egg mixture, then roll in bread crumbs until fully coated. Deep fry for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain excess oil. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and squeeze lemon juice over, if desired.The recipe below is an adaptation of one we saw in a Coastal Living years ago that quickly became one of our all-time favorites. For a while there, we were quite addicted to them and worked tirelessly to find just the right dipping sauce. While we think they are delish on their own, fresh-made dill dip adds a little something special if you serve this as your main course. Artichoke Cakesthree 14 oz cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped 2 large eggs, lightly beaten cup chopped red bell pepper 2 Tbsp chopped green onions 1 cup bread crumbs (panko) cup mayonnaise cup whipping cream 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 2 tsp Creole mustard 1 tsp salt 2 tsp Worcestershire 1 tsp Tabasco Directions Mix all together.

Insect pests can usually be controlled in the home landscape without the use of harsh chemical pesticides. As with weed control, successful insect management starts with identifying the culprit. The gardener who scouts his plants to see what kind of insects are present and what kind of damage is occurring is prepared to do combat, or not. The no-combat option is absolutely the most satisfying way to control insects. By scouting often in your garden, you will soon learn that nature is trying to help herself. Beneficial insects are probably keeping the bad guys in check by devouring them, and doing so with no effort from you. Learn how to identify the good in your landscape. You probably know that lady bugs are good to have around, but did you know that all her different larval stages are very creepy looking insects? The young are just as good, if not better, at devouring plant-damaging insects. Butterfly caterpillars are voracious eaters and can defoliate their favorite host plant while they are rapidly growing. In this case, being very accepting of a worm-eaten plant in your yard will reward you with the delightful activity of butterflies around your flowers when the adults emerge. If you want to attract butterflies, learn more about plants that serve as good nectar plants for adult butterflies. To keep them in your yard, learn about the plants on which different butterflies will lay eggs to later feed their hungry caterpillars. GARDENContinued From 1D D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Co lumbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. from the University of Florida) at Lake City Middle School, he recalled. But after a couple of months, I transferred to Fort White. Originally, I was splitting my time between agricultural science and earth-space science, but the job just kept evolving to where I am today. Babston brings an uncompromising ethic of rewarding genuine effort to the classroom, an ethic he learned while working in sales and sales management for some 20 years before becoming an educator. If you dont reward effort, you destroy motivation, he said frankly. I remember working for a local business after I first moved here. My boss told me that if I worked hard, Id make more money. So I took him at his word. They told me I needed to generate $350 in sales daily; I put in extra time and work and consistently turned in $500 worth a day. Then I asked for a raise and they offered only 50 cents an hour. I told them that wasnt worth the extra effort I was putting in and if that was the way they were going to do it, Id drop back to the $350 a day they required and quit for the day when that was done. Suddenly they decided that a $2 raise per hour was pretty reasonable, he added with a chuckle. Babston expects his students to work for their grades, but that doesnt mean that they cant enjoy his class. I like to joke and kid with the students, he said. It makes class a lot more fun when you can interject some humor. As long as the kids play ball with me about getting their work done, I want them to have a good time here. To that end, Babston uses hands-on demonstrations of various scientific facts and principles as well as humor. He also has an unusual ally in Slinky, his pet ball python, who lives in a terrarium in the classroom. (Ball pythons are a small, nonpoisonous species of snake from Africa and are known for their gentle natures and handsome markings.) When students come in at the beginning of the year and find out Ive got a snake in here, some of them really get bug-eyed, Babston said with a grin. But practically all of them are curious, so Slinky helps me out by providing a living illustration for talking about biology and ecology. He also serves as reinforcement for good behavior in the classroom; if a student is doing well and wants to, Ill let them pet or hold Slinky as a reward. The only things I insist on are that that they handle Slinky properly so that he wont get hurt and that they not push the snake at classmates who for whatever reason dont want to interact with him. Babston is open regarding both the frustrations and the rewards of his job. I make it a point never to lie to the kids about anything, he said. So it really bothers me when some of them just dont want to take me seriously when I tell them that the classwork isnt optional and that their futures depend on the self-discipline they develop. But it doesnt bother me when students tell me they dont like science. A lot of times, they start coming around when I can show them how it affects their everyday lives and how many good, enjoyable jobs are related to it. All I ask is that they give it a chance, because science can be their key to a whole world of opportunities. SCIENCEContinued From Page 1D
