By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com A 19-year-old Michigan man died Wednesday after he walked into a local pawn shop, asked to see a shot gun, then loaded it with a shell from his pocket and shot himself in the head. Brandon Lee Klatt, of Deerfield, Mich., died less than an hour later at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center, according to reports from the Lake City Police Department. Klatt walked into American Pawn, 905 SW Main Blvd., Suite 100 at about 10:05 a.m. and asked to see a shotgun from the display, LCPD said. The store clerk handed the unloaded gun to Klatt, who began looking it over as if to make a purchase. Klatt then took a shot gun shell from his pock et and loaded the gun. As he was backing away from the counter and the clerk, he shot himself in the head, according to Craig Strickland, Lake City Police Department public information officer. The clerk drew his firearm and pointed it at him and just told him, Put the gun down, put the gun down and the guy pulled the trigger, Strickland said. Strickland said Klatt came into the pawn shop the day before but did not look at firearms. He just acted as a nor mal customer, Strickland said. Authorities said a sui cide note written to his family was found in Klatts pockets. The note also told law enforcement where he parked his vehicle, in the Popeyes parking lot at the intersection of Duval Street and Main Boulevard. Police say he walked about a mile to the pawn shop. Strickland did not know if the vehicle was in work ing order when parked by Klatt. The vehicle, a passen ger car, was impounded, Strickland said. He said the make and model were not immediately known. Strickland said it was unclear why Klatt was in Lake City but that inves tigators were talking with his family in Michigan for more information.

Tom and Marie Foster, co-owners of Rupperts since March 8, 2004, sold their last baked goods from the corner of N. Marion Avenue and NE Madison Street Monday. Its been a rough year for my wife and I, healthwise, said Tom Foster, 81. He said he and his wife had the location up for sale for years, but no interested party scraped together enough money. Kurt Ruppert and his wife started the bakery in 1991 after he relocated to Lake City from Key West, making minor renovations to what used to be a Rexall drug store. The original location itself was built in 1896 and still contained some of the original furnishings from that era (although the gas lamps that hung from the ceiling were eventually phased out).

Head-on I-10 crash kills one By JIM TURNERThe News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Concerns expressed by the Florida National Guard stalled a Senate proposal that would allow people without con cealed-weapons licenses to carry concealed firearms when forced outside in times of emergency. But Sen. Jeff Brandes, a St. Petersburg Republican and sponsor of the bill (SB 296), said Wednesday he intends to revive the proposal after he has time to dis cuss it with the National Guard. Certainly there are some legiti mate concerns that are still out there, Brandes said. Brandes proposal would cre ate an exemption to a state con cealed-carry law by allowing indi viduals who have not qualified for the licenses to carry weapons off their property when ordered to move due to a governor-declared state of emergency, such as a hur ricane or wildfire. Capt. Terrence Gorman, general counsel for the Florida Department of Military Affairs, said a balance is needed between personal safety and public safety, adding that a potentially tricky situation can be created when people who have not taken the required weapons train ing are carrying firearms during stress-filled periods. When people arent thinking clearly they probably shouldnt have a weapon shoved in the back of their pants, Gorman said, espe cially when youre talking about thousands of people who need to be evacuated from an area. Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, said the intent of the mea sure is to protect people who may not know the law when forced to flee their homes. But Sen. Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican who served as Citrus County sheriff, said he would oppose the measure. I think this vio lates the threshold of the situation of an emergency as opposed to conflict of interest about whether you have a right to carry, Dean said. I think the law enforcement has a duty and responsibility, and I dont see that as an abuse. Dean was part of a 5-2 vote in favor of the bill when it appeared March 3 before the Criminal Justice Committee.

Area newspapers report Circuit Judge Mallory Cooper on Tuesday said they moved the trial date for 57-year-old Donald James Smith to October. Smith is accused of killing Cherish Perrywinkle on June 21 after befriending her mother at a Dollar General store. Police say he took the mother and her young children to a Wal-Mart store, where he offered to buy clothes and food. The girl disappeared after she went with Smith to a McDonalds inside the store about 11 p.m. Her body was found the next day.Smith was arrested after his photo and description of his van were published. Legislators draw up rival school spending plans TALLAHASSEE Florida legislators are drawing up rival spending plans for education. The House and Senate this week are starting to work on a new state budget. The House is proposing to increase spending on public schools by nearly $741 million. That translates into a 3 percent increase or nearly $208 for every student in the state. The Senate is proposing to increase public school spending by $651 million. That translates into an increase of 2.58 percent or $175 for every student in the state. But the Senate is proposing higher spending on state universities and on col lege financial aid than the House. The Senate for example is proposing to give University of Florida and Florida State University an additional $5 million this year because they are the states pre-eminent research universities.Persons of interest sought in triple killing ORLANDO Authorities are search ing for two homeless men whove been classified as persons of interest in the deaths of three other homeless people near Orlando. The victims were found shot to death in a shed near a wooded area on Tuesday. Deputies told television stations they want to talk with 47-year-old Leonard Scott Lewis and 60-year-old David T. Emmons. The victims Richard Button, Todd Lemme and Deborah Watson were in their 50s and 60s. Orange County Sheriffs spokeswoman Jane Watrel says it appears the victims knew their attackers.

CONCEALEDContinued From 1A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The Columbia County Environmental Health Department has issued a rabies alert for the southwest region of the county after a physicians report confirmed a resident had been exposed to the disease. We had a pet cat that tested positive for rabies, said Sallie Ford, Columbia County Environmental Health director. There is one known exposure to a human, and were working through the details to see whether there are any more. Due to HIPPA regulations, the Department of Health could not release any additional information about the rabies victim. Rabies is a disease of the nervous system and is fatal to warm blooded animals and humans. The only treatment for human exposure is rabies-specific immune globulin and immunization. Appropriate treatment started soon after the exposure will protect an exposed person from the disease. Ford said the environmental health department was notified through a physicians report on Friday that the pet cat was the source of the exposure to a human. On Friday we entered the cat into a rabies quarantine because the cat was still alive, she said. The cat died over the weekend during the rabies quarantine. Ford said the cats owners brought the body to the health department and it was sent to the lab for testing on Monday. Tuesday the Department of Healths lab in Jacksonville confirmed the cat tested positive for rabies. The pet cat had never been vaccinated for rabies and never had a rabies shot, she said. The rabies alert is for 60 days and the center is in the southwestern region of the county and includes the following area boundaries: Southwest Ichetucknee Avenue (north of Southwest Elim Church Road); Southwest Spruce Road, Southwest Yale Road and Southwest Curtain Road; Southwest Faulkner Drive; and Southwest Cantaloupe Avenue (including Pine Acres subdivision). The cats owners had other pets and health officials are checking those animals as well as other family members to make sure they were not exposed to the disease. We dont know how the cat contracted rabies, Ford said. It roamed around outside and it could have come from any other animal. It is somewhat rare for a pet, domesticated animal, to get rabies. Thats why we wanted to issue the rabies alert. We have at least one exposure and were trying to figure out whether we have more. In 2013 Columbia County had one confirmed rabies case in a skunk and in 2012 the only confirmed rabies case was in a fox. It is rare, but can happen, which is why we wanted to make sure everybody gets their animals in check with the rabies vaccination, Ford said.Case of rabies confirmed in Fort White COURTESYThis map shows the center of the southwestern region of the county under alert for the next 60 days.KEEPING YOUR FAMILY SAFEKeep rabies vaccina tions up to date for all pets.If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact the Florida Department of Health in Columbia County at 386-758-1058.Do not handle, feed, or unintentionally attract wild animals by leaving pet food outside.Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly.Persons who have been bitten or scratched by wild or domestic animals should seek medical attention and report the injury to the Florida Department of Health in Columbia County at 386-758-1058. he was pronounced dead at 10:58 a.m. More than a dozen first responder vehicles from the local police department, sheriffs office, city and county fire departments, state attorneys office and Lifeguard Ambulance were on the scene in the Lake City Plaza parking lot. Yellow police tape served as a barrier for the American Pawn Shop and people pulling into the parking lot to check on the stores employees. The clerk was very shaken up by what had happened, Strickland said. I dont think anybody is prepared to see someone commit suicide in front of them. Strickland said one other couple was in the store shortly before the shooting. Klatt loaded the shotgun and fired when they left. Law enforcement units remained in the parking lot and some stayed after FDLE crime scene technicians arrived, collected evidence and left the scene at about 1 p.m. Klatts family was notified of his death by the Lenawee County, Michigan Sheriffs Office on Wednesday afternoon. This is a very tragic incident to occur in our community, Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said in a news release. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Klatt family in Michigan for the loss of their son and loved one, and also to the employees of American Pawn who witnessed this young man take his life. KLATTContinued From 1A
R ep. Paul Ryan recently said the wrong kind of welfare can breed depen-dency, and liberals are beating up on him but good. They are saying that he is once again showing how conserva-tives do not care about the poor when in fact liberals are the ones who continuously assault them. They repeatedly practice cruelty in their politics, as many so obvi-ously did with Aid to Families with Dependent Children. This major federal welfare program was a mess, encouraging family dissolution as one way of devastating the disadvantaged, but a slew of liberals were up in arms when Democratic President Bill Clinton joined with a Republican Congress in 1996 to reform it, adding work requirements among other changes. Two members of the administration resigned as other liberals joined in arguing ferociously that the reform would throw a million children into poverty. Instead, as scholars of the subject observe, millions of children were lifted out of poverty along with poor single mothers who got jobs in record numbers and still received other subsidies as needed. Leftist commentators are getting everything wrong about Ryan, pathetically calling him a racist because of a reference to the inner city and almost making it sound in some nearly dishonest diatribes as if he is against any public aid to the poor at all. They thus help fend off further welfare reform that could be among the best things that ever happened to Americas poor, which is hardly unusual for leftists forever wreaking havoc as they strut their moral superiority. Maybe some of their intentions are indeed good, but they do not grasp the invisible-hand benefi-cence of free markets, they havent figured out that central planners dont have the omniscience their task requires and some of their intentions are not good. Take a hard look at elected officials on the left, keep in mind how reelection and popularity are their holy grails and then contemplate the following: Demagogic, anti-capitalist, envy-mongering politics. Consider the Democratic chant that greedy, rich businesses are cheating work-ers and President Barack Obamas new move to expand overtime pay. Businesses are thus pushed against the wall and, as some astute critics note, there will be less overtime, there will be reductions in base pay and there will be more automation replacing workers. Special-interest politics. Consider how Bill de Blasio, New York Citys new ultra-leftist mayor, is playing kissy-face with teachers unions that supported him by play-ing games with the future of non-unionized charter schools. These schools happen to be making a genuine, positive difference in the lives of needy minority children. Vote buying politics. Consider Obama joining with congressional members of both parties aiming to win student loyalty at the polls through making student loans more attractive at lower interest rates even as they feed tuition inflation and leave college graduates with horrendous debts. You get all of these ulterior motives rolled into one in Obamacare that does do a few worthy things that could have been done more simply and inexpen-sively and many unworthy, hurtful, overreaching things done complex-ly and with massive cost. Theres a long, long list of liberal programs that contradict their stated purposes by their infamous actions, but lets get back to welfare reform and Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who chairs the House Budget Committee. He has put together a massive report on federal welfare programs, showing how ineffective and waste-ful many are. No one answer will fix all the problems, but a major answer is to emulate the reform of Aid to Families with Dependent Children, figuring out ways to help get people into jobs. Liberals somehow see it as a horrendous insult to suppose giving people free things can make them dependent on getting free things, but people of common sense know it happens and always has, sometimes even hap-pening to the children of the rich. The compassionate thing in the case of the poor is to help them escape the trap, and someday maybe even leftists will catch on to that.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org F loridians should be able to trust that state senators will ask tough questions when a top state bureaucrat denies for months that his agencys botched computer system is delaying benefits for thousands of jobless Floridians. But instead in Tallahassee, senators are blithely engaging in revisionist history, casting the barely repentant head of Floridas Department of Economic Opportunity as some agent extraordinaire as he undergoes the confirmation process. Lawmakers who like to trumpet accountability in government need to practice it themselves. Two Senate committee hearings in the past week have been a reminder of how reality can get twisted in the state Capitol. DEO executive director Jesse Panuccio, 33, has sailed through two committee con-firmation hearings without a single negative vote. Senators have commiserated on how tough it is to launch major computer systems. But where theyre wrong is in praising him for taking ownership early on of the problems plaguing the $63 million CONNECT computer system. In November, Panuccio stood before some of these same senators and discounted numerous media reports from across the state that his agencys CONNECT system, then one month old, was making it impossible for jobless Floridans to apply for aid, much less actu-ally receive the weekly payments they were due. And for two more months after that, Panuccio allowed a backlog of applications to grow to 30,000 before imple-menting extraordinary measures to get Floridians the money they were due and then only after the U.S. Labor Department came to Tallahassee at the request of U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. State Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, glibly gave a hint Monday as to how this denial has taken root, reminding his colleagues on the Commerce and Tourism Committee that Panuccio had taken the time to meet with each one of them. Apparently such hob-nobbing is more important to keeping a $141,000 tax-payer-funded job than ineffective leadership.... And last week, the anticipated next Senate president, Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, even tried to score partisan political points, boasting that Panuccio could teach Washington a thing or two about taking responsibil-ity in denial that it took Washington to come to Tallahassee to actually get the job done. He pledged to ensure that Panuccio receives a confirmation floor vote this year lest he automatically lose his job otherwise. Senate Ethics and Elections Committee Chairman Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, failed to schedule one last year. Latvala, so far, is mum on where he stands and even took a walk from one of Panuccios first committee stops to avoid casting a vote. But political maneuv ering shouldnt be the fail-safe here. Senators in Panucc ios last two committee stops need to do their job and demand a public explanation from the bureaucrat abo ut why it took three months to implement emergency mea sures to get unemployment compensation to Floridian s. And then they need to ask why they should have any confidence he wont make a similar bad decision aga in. Floridas Republican-led Legislature talks a lot about bringing more accountability to state government. They should practice what they preach. Legislature in denial over Web fiasco Q Tampa Bay Times The desperate need for liberal compassion I t is difficult to comment on the missing Malaysia Airline plane that disappeared on March 8 without appropriate sensitivity. Even if the aircraft were to be found somewhere on solid ground, the passengers, crew, family members and friends of all aboard would have nonetheless suf-fered the horrible trauma during the interim period of not knowing. That outcome becomes increasingly unlikely as time goes by. If the aircraft had been hijacked, the criminals by now would likely have made themselves known, either to seek ransom or to claim political responsibility. The Malaysian government has shown itself to be grossly inad-equate to handle such an event. It withheld critical information from international parties seeking to learn the planes fate and, in the process, wasted precious time that could have been used to find the plane. On Monday the government even changed its account of the sequence of events. The minute the flight left Kuala Lumpur for Beijing, its intended destination, the affair ceased to be a Malaysian matter, however, and became international in character. That is not to say that Malaysia should have handed the disappear-ance over to the United States to solve. In fact, the country with most at stake, after Malaysia, is China, whose citizens were the bulk of Flight 370s passengers. Now 26 nations, including the United States, are engaged in the quest to find some trace of the plane. There is reason to believe evidence will turn up someplace. If the plane went into the water, remnants will eventually float to the surface and be found. Most people can only sympathize with those who are desperately seeking to know what happened to their loved ones. In the meantime, international authorities need to lean on Malaysia and other countries that do not exercise appropriate vigilance over aircraft that enter their territory. This is not an area where carelessness or indifference is acceptable. In an age when international travel is commonplace, the safety of each individual, regardless of country of origin, depends on the standards and accountability set by every nation.

The students, who are also a part of the Columbia Countys Students Working Against Tobacco, show their support for CVS Caremark Corp.s decision to stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products. pre-2004, Foster said he and his wife were frequent visitors to Lake City and Live Oak. I had to have something to keep me busy, Foster said. So we came up and took over from where he [Ruppert] took off...We still use his same recipes for muffins and brownies. Foster was a veteran of the Korean War who served as a sonar operator technician for the U.S. Navy and later became a contractor for Coca-Cola, explaining the combination of patriotic and soda-centric memorabilia around the bakery. Although he said health concerns drove their decision to close, Foster also cited the stiff competition from supermarkets that sell baked goods for a fraction of what Rupperts charges. We might charge $9.95 for a pumpkin pie while Publix might charge $3.99, Foster said. But the difference is that our pies are made right here with quality ingredients and made fresh with no preservatives. Although he and his wife are closing up shop, he said they have plans to continue selling their goods at the local farmers market. Some of the best people Ive met are in Lake City, Foster said. There are fantastic people in this area. Weve made some great and true friends. During the course of his interview, a homeless man who identified himself as Joseph Hollywood Williams paid Foster a visit. Sometimes [Foster] will give me some work to do, sometimes hell get me something to drink when Im thirsty, Williams said. Im going to miss him. Foster said some people have called him a sucker for going out of his way to help those in need, but he doesnt see any other option. I just feel like you have to work with people, you have to help people, he said. The Fosters said they plan to travel once they finished closing up shop, with the Dakotas high on their list. Those are the only states I havent been to, Foster said. However, he made it clear he and his wife will continue to call the local community home. We want to thank Lake City for their support, Foster said. We love Lake City. Were staying here.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: Due to various anti-drug lectures he was exposed to at school, my 13-year-old son believes that marijuana is not only illegal, but also is very bad for you. He said it is poison. My state has recently legalized marijuana and I am at a loss about how to explain to him that pot is no longer that bad, as people partake of it in a responsible manner going forward. Any suggestions? COLORADO MOM DEAR MOM: Marijuana isnt poison, unless it was sprayed with a poisonous chemical before being harvested. The mar ijuana being sold to adults in the states where it is now legal has been careful ly cultivated and harvested. Its use is not encouraged among teenagers, howev er, because research has shown it can impair brain development among young people. Stress to your son that like alcohol, marijuana can slow reaction time and impair judgment and memory, which is why its illegal for minors to use it. Whether it will become legal across the nation is still an open question. If its abused the way that alcohol sometimes is, smoking weed may also be harmful because, like any smoke, it poses a risk to the lungs. DEAR ABBY: I moved into my boyfriends home several months ago. In the beginning, he was very attentive and we had fun together. But over the last couple of months, he has become abusive and unbearable to live with. He orders me around and dou ble-checks to make sure Im doing things his way. I feel as though there isnt room to breathe and no way out. I have lost weight, and Im having trouble sleeping now. I have no family or friends who can help me out. I want to end this misery! But how? MISERABLE IN FLORIDA DEAR MISERABLE: Pick up the phone and call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233). Although your boy friends controlling behav ior hasnt yet escalated to physical abuse, it very well could. The counselors at the hotline can help you to formulate a plan so you can safely get away. Please dont wait to make the call, because the symptoms youre having are ones of extreme stress. DEAR ABBY: We live in a small town. My hus band is friendly and out going and seems to know everyone. We cant go anywhere without running into someone he knows. Meals out that should be quiet affairs turn into social situations I do not want to be part of. I have wracked my brain as to a polite response to people when they say, Join us! I dont WANT to join them. How do we politely decline their friendly offer? NOT TONIGHT IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR NOT TONIGHT: A polite way to refuse would be to say, Wed love to do that another time, but it has been a long day and we just want to sit and be quiet. It wouldnt be considered rude unless you say it often. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Concentrate on your budget, investments and moving money around to better suit your lifestyle and current needs. Investing in your future, as well as your skills, knowledge and exper tise, will pay off. Romance will help you make a choice. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Helping others will benefit you as well.

Once your responsibilities are out of the way, you will be free to create and develop something that interests you.

Go with the flow and you will end up in a better position. Someone special will give you hope and encouragement. Put love first. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Socialize, but dont overspend or make offers you may not be able to deliv er. A change in your financial standing will bring added benefits that will encourage a better lifestyle as long as you dont live beyond your means. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Present and promote your talents, skills and intel lect.

A relationship will undergo a change. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Slow down and listen to whats being said. Someone may try to trick you into believing something that isnt true. An emotional matter will sur face that can end up being costly if you havent protect ed your assets. Stick to the truth. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at every opportunity and be ready to take advantage.

Kansas State freshmen Marcus Foster and Wesley Iwundu have never played Kentucky. They hadnt even seen the scouting film on the SEC powerhouse that was being put together by their coaches. Yet they were already inti mately familiar with them. You see, Iwundu played on the same Houston-area AAU team as Kentucky freshmen Andrew and Aaron Harrison, which was coached by the twins father. Foster played against them on a rival AAU program out of Dallas. And as Iwundu and Foster were trying to usher their Wildcats to the NCAA tournament this sea son, they caught plenty of games involving those other Wildcats on television. The first thing I thought about was the twins, Iwundu said when he saw that No. 9 seed Kansas State would be playing No. 8 seed Kentucky on Friday in St. Louis. I knew from the jump, playing against them last summer, that they are going to be pros, Foster added. The Harrison twins are very talented scorers. Andrew takes care of the ball well. Aaron can score. And Julius Randle is a monster down there in the paint. So much for the Kansas State coaches putting together that scouting tape. They might as well ask Foster for a run-down. Which raises a question: Has some of the mystery that made the NCAA tourna ment so intriguing over the years been slowly stripped away? After all, there is an ever-expanding summer circuit for traveling teams and so many games now can be found on television or online, along with expert (and not-so-expert) analysis via social media outlets. I dont know if I buy into that, Kansas coach Bill Self said. I always thought the mystery of the NCAA is the potential upsets, and that kind of stuff, where youre dealing with Cinderellas, and that one player that comes out of nowhere to put his team on their back. There are so many unique stories that come along with this thing. They may be unique. They just might not neces sarily be novel. Think back to 1991. When Richmond became the first No. 15 seed to upset a No. 2 seed in Syracuse, how many casual fans knew any thing about the Spiders? Fast forward two decades, when Richmond was back in the NCAA tournament as a No. 12 seed. Several of their players had grown up on the AAU circuit, competing against friends who wound up at marquee programs. The Spiders had become regulars on TV. And they were suddenly a trendy pick to spring a couple of upsets, which they did. Every team is well-pre pared and well-scouted, so players go in, and theyre not caught off guard by what people can do, Baylor coach Scott Drew explained. Back in the day, when you were relying on VHS tape, and sometimes you didnt get all the tape in. I think definitely you could surprise some people.
