Pinemount assistant principal Marilyn Gassett, guidance counselor Amanda Todd and at least two other school employ-ees knew of the 8-year-old girls claims but did not report them to the state Department of Children and Families as required by law, according to an arrest report of the girls alleged abuser. Based on what Ive been told Im not inclined to file on them, Siegmeister said, though he declined to elaborate. In all, four or more district employees could have faced felony charges, he said. According to the arrest report, on April 11 the victim told two students on a school bus that she had been raped by her stepfather. The students told district employee Ashley Hargrove, who told fellow employee Yvonne Melgaard. Melgaard reported it to Gassett, who contacted Todd. Gassett and Todd met with the victims mother, who told them she kept a close eye on her daughter and could not believe she had been sexually abused.

Hiringglitchdrawsracismcharge TEACHERS continued on 3A Lyles City rewrites jobdescription in public works.By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comThe search for the citys new assistant public works director has revealed incon-sistencies in the citys inter-nal hiring process, says a member of city coun-cil. One local man claims racial pref-erence prevented his brother, a black appli-cant for the position, from receiving an interview. However, the head of the pub-lic works depart-ment denies any racial bias, adding that all appli-cants were going to be inter-viewed had city manage-ment not intervened. The discussions and concerns led City Manager Wendell Johnson and staff to review the citys personnel manual, and include provisions standard-izing the hiring process in the future. Following a second round of interviews com-pleted last week, Public Works Director Thomas Henry said Friday the city had selected a new person for the position. However, he declined to reveal who was selected, saying the city will make an announcement Monday.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 OCALA A Florida Highway Patrol trooper mourning a col league killed after being struck by a vehicle wants Gov. Rick Scott to reconsider a bill that would raise the highway speed limit to 75 mph. Scott joined hundreds of law enforcement officers at the funer al Thursday for Master Trooper Chelsea Richard. She died along with two others May 3 after they were struck by a vehicle while standing alongside Interstate 75 near a traffic accident. Area newspapers report that during the funeral, Trooper Tod G. Cloud told Scott that the Florida Legislatures approval of a bill that would raise the speed limit from 70 mph to 75 mph wasnt a bright idea. He said that the law enforce ment job he feared the most was working on an accident on I-75 because people do not drive with common sense. Cloud said he also would like to see a law that would drop the speed limit to 55 mph when high ways are wet. I-75 was wet from recent rains when Richard died. On behalf of 19 million Floridians, my heart goes out to you, Scott told Richards family. I have daughters the same age. I just cant imagine. Richard, 30, was remembered as a devoted mother to her 4-year-old son and a dedicated trooper. FHP Chaplain Wayne Hunter said Richards boyfriend, FHP Sgt. Jamie Mulverhill, had planned to propose to her the day she died. Richard had been a trooper for nine years. She is one of 45 troopers to die in the line of duty in the FHPs 75-year history. The investigation into the crash that killed Richard, tow truck driver John Duggan and George Phillips is ongoing. A memorial service will be held Friday for Phillips, and Duggans funeral will be May 17. Man mistakenly released back in jail COCOA A man mistakenly released from a central Florida jail when he should have seen a judge is back in custody. Lamanceo Dorsey was arrest ed April 30 on burglary and grand theft charges. He was allowed to post $7,000 bail that same day without appearing before a judge. Brevard County authorities say that was a mistake because Dorsey should have been held without bail because he was on probation for a heroin conviction, according to rules established in an administrative order set by the local court. Jail staff released him, though, thinking his most recent arrest superseded the administrative order. Florida Today reports that Dorsey was arrested again Wednesday at a Cocoa probation office. Hell remain in custody until authorities decide how to proceed with his probation vio lation. 4 killed in mansion blaze were shot TAMPA The flames that brought down a 6,000-foot-square mansion have been extin guished, the four bodies charred by the blaze removed. With the results of autop sies pending and authorities indicating the possibility of a murder-suicide, investigators are now trying to piece together the story of the family that lived inside and what may have led to the deaths. All four of the people had been shot, authorities said, and detec tives recovered a gun registered to Darrin Campbell, a career executive who lived in the house with his wife and two teenage children. Campbell bought $650 worth of fireworks and a bunch of gas cans just days before the house went up in flames, officials said. Authorities still have not positively identified the bodies found inside as those of the Campbells, but police said they had been renting the property from a former tennis star, and the family has not been account ed for. A relative said they were inside the home at the time of the fire. On Thursday, officials sifted and raked through the charred remains on the property. We plan to spend the next several days continuing to process the scene, said Hillsborough County Sheriffs Col. Donna Lusczynski. She said it was possible more information could be released Friday. Terror case of marshal assault begins MIAMI Security and other issues are the subjects of a hear ing in the Florida terrorism-re lated case of two brothers now accused of assaulting deputy U.S. marshals. U.S. District Judge Robert Scola set a hearing Friday morn ing in the case of Sheheryar and Raess Alam Qazi. They have pleaded not guilty to charges of plotting to blow up New York City landmarks to avenge deadly U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan. Last month, authorities say the brothers attacked two deputy U.S. marshals at a facility where they view classified evidence. Scola wants to know if enhanced security measures are needed there and in court. There are also questions about whether the brothers law yer can represent them because he saw the alleged attack and would be a witness if they are charged with assault.

Burns The Roosevelts to open PBS season LOS ANGELES PBS said Thursday its fall season will open with a binge-viewing opportunity: a sev en-part Ken Burns documentary on the Roosevelt political dynasty. The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, will air as two-hour episodes over seven nights, beginning Sept. 14. Each episode will be repeated nightly and the show will be widely available for post-air online viewing, said Beth Hoppe, PBS chief programming exec utive. I think its the best thing Kens done since The Civil War, Hoppe said. He thinks it might be the best thing hes ever done. The viewer experience is changing and were trying to dish this up as an epic binge, Hoppe said of the series about U.S. presidents and cousins Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt and FDRs wife, Eleanor.New Anne Frank play opening in Amsterdam AMSTERDAM Anne Franks tragic story is returning to the stage in Amsterdam, hoping to engage a whole new generation with the Jewish teen ager whose diary is the most famous chronicle of life under Nazi occupation. Thursdays opening is the first time a theatrical production has been forged directly from Franks actual writings since an award-winning 1950s play that escalated her tale then little-known to the worlds attention. A lot of people think they know the story, but once you see this you will get to know a lot of details you dont real ize, producer Robin de Levita told The Associated Press in an interview. We show historical footage to create a relationship between what happened in real time and what happened while they were in hiding, De Levita said. We follow her whole life and look over her shoulder, see what she experienced. The play is being staged in a specially-built 1,100-seat theater in Amsterdams west port area. The 15-meter-high (50-foot) stage includes a revolving replica of the secret canal-side apartment where Frank and her family hid for 18 months from the Nazi forces occupying the Netherlands in World War II. They were betrayed in 1944 and deported. ABCs Spencer sorry for Cinco de Mayo segment NEW YORK ABCs Lara Spencer is apologizing for referring to Cinco de Mayo as Cinco de Drinko on a Good Morning America segment this week. The anchor wore, then twirled, a sombrero and mentioned that the hol iday was the biggest day of the year for margarita sales. She held what appeared to be a margarita. She tweeted a day later that she got a little carried away and was sorry for the segment. MSNBCs Way Too Early show similarly apologized this week for showing a staff member shak ing maracas and taking a swig from what was said to be a tequila bottle. The holiday marks an 1862 battle vic tory by Mexican troops.Loyal to zip-up Godzilla, Japan wary of US remake TOKYO The big-screen Godzilla that scared and thrilled viewers in 1954 was an actor in a rubber suit with a zipper up its back. And many Japanese fans still prefer that monster over a Hollywood version made in terrifying, full 3-D computer-graphics glory. Japanese Godzilla-lovers say their iconic hero falls into a special phantas mal category called kaiju, which have more imaginary, far-fetched traits than what they see as more mundane mon sters like King Kong or Frankenstein. And the Hollywood version is no kaiju, said Kazuya Haraguchi, who collects Godzilla goods, including a 100,000 yen ($1,000) complete DVD collection from Toho Studios, which came with a huge fangs-baring Godzilla head. Scripture of the Day How many times had those awful words: I know what Im doing been uttered throughout history as prelude to disaster? Christopher Buckley, Supreme Courtship There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh.

By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comE agle Scouts do everything but give up. They go white water rafting, shoot rifles and weld. Troop 91s newest Eagle Scouts Matthew Adams, 15, JonElliot Antognoni, 15, Ryan Kasak, 15, Robert Martin, 17, and Shawn Ziegaus, 16 share inside jokes. They tease their buddy about his girlfriend, in the way high school boys do. Troop leader 91 John Kasak told the boys the personal management skills theyve learned as Eagle Scouts will help them in college. Well probably die from our cooking the first week, said Antognoni, a junior at Columbia High School. But its not all fun for the five boys. The honor of Eagle Scout was only awarded to about seven percent of all Boy Scouts in 2013, according to the Boy Scouts of America website. Each boy had to earn at least 21 merit badges, and most earned closer to 30. They visited the Capitol building in Tallahassee and tracked their spending to earn badges. They also served in troop leadership posi-tions for six months and planned and led a service project that benefited a community organization. John Kasak said Troop 91 has never had five boys make Eagle Scout at once. If they get to the high school level, its hard to keep them going, he said. But Kasak said he definitely didnt force the boys to become Eagle Scouts. I didnt make them do it, he said. I just gave them the ability to do it. All of the boys but Martin were initiated in the same ceremony in March. Adams could have gotten it sooner, but he wait-ed, so he and his friends could be inducted at the same time. In addition to gaining friends along the way to becoming an Eagle Scout, you also learn how to act as a first responder and be ready for anything, said Ryan Kasak, a freshman at St. Francis Catholic High School in Gainesville. He and his dad witnessed a woman have a seizure while shopping at Walmart. Ryan Kasak said if he had known then what he knows now, he wouldve been able to help her. He also said being an assistant troop leader taught him a lot. You learn leadership skills that you dont learn in high school, he said. In addition to learning leadership skills from leading a troop, the boys learned those skills from their service projects. To become an Eagle Scout, you have to lead a service project for a com-munity organization. The purpose of the service project is not just to help the community. Theyre also required to manage a team of workers, usu-ally fellow Boy Scouts and family members who help them with their project. Ziegaus replaced and repaired part of an old fence behind Epiphany Catholic Church for his project. Adams rebuilt a showcase at the Lake City VA from raw lumber and revamped part of the patient garden there for his. Martin built a service kiosk for the Osceola National Forest. Antognoni built an elevated archery platform for Osceola Rifle & Pistol Range, and Ryan Kasak built a shed for Epiphany Catholic Church. Adams hopes to attend the Naval Academy after high school, and John Kasak said Eagle Scouts will help him understand how rankings work. Ryan Kasak said despite how hard the journey was, he thinks itll be worth it. Everybody I meet who dropped out early regrets it, he said.

Terry Huddleston declined, citing a 2013 state law that he said authorized a delay in the release of such information. Huddleston said an investigative report would be released 10 days after the district decided on a course of action, including possible in-house punishment for adminis-trators and other personnel at Pinemount Elementary who allegedly failed to contact authorities concerning a students claims she had been raped by her stepfather. According to Huddleston, the 10-day lag is prescribed by F.S. 119.071(2)(k), passed by the Florida Legislature in April 2013. The law, also known as House Bill 1075, allows complaints against some state workers to be withheld until the inves-tigation is complete and the subject of the inves-tigation has been notified in writing. However, attorneys contacted by the Lake City Reporter confirmed the statute contains no provision for a 10-day delay. Sam Morley, staff attorney for the Florida Press Association, told the Reporter by email Thursday that once the schools internal investigation is complete, the information is no longer covered by the exemption and must be released. Barbara Petersen, president of the First Amendment Foundation, agreed the law contains no provision for a 10-day delay, but said HB1075, cited by Huddleston, did not appear to be the relevant stat-ute. She said by email that complaints against school employees fall under F.S. 1012.31(3)(a). However, she said that statute contains no provision for delay either. The Lake City Reporter notified Huddleston by email Friday that failure to release the investigative reports in a timely fashion would place the district in potential violation of Floridas Sunshine Law and reiterated a public records request for all relevant documents. He did not respond.A text message from Huddleston earlier that week indicated he had spoken with school board attorney Guy Norris, who told me not to talk about the incident at this time. Huddleston said previously that Norris advised him of the purported 10-day wait period. The Lake City Reporter cannot confirm the districts investigation has been com-pleted. Previous statements by Huddleston, however, indicate the probe was supposed to have been concluded last week. Information obtained by the Lake City Reporter concerning the case came from the arrest report of Arnold Dean Lyles, a Pinemount Elementary students step-father. Lyles was arrested on April 13, one day after authorities were notified of the girls claims. An arrest report obtained from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office docu-mented allegations that Lyles forcibly grabbed the [victims] leg, which made a popping sound, and that he was discov-ered alone in a room with a camera and the girl, sitting on a chair unclothed, according to a story in the newspapers April 17 edition. At that point Lyles faced charges of cruelty to a child and battery, and the CCSO report contained no reference to claims the victim told school officials she had been sexually assaulted. The sexual assault charge was added upon further investigation by CCSO, though it is not clear when, and an amended narrative connecting Lyles to the alleged failure of Pinemount officials to report the girls claims was provided the Lake City Reporter Saturday morn-ing. Lyles has remained in jail since his initial arrest. Huddleston In potential violation ofSunshine Law, district to delay release of its report. Neither Gassett nor Todd contacted authorities, the report said. The following day, the mother took the girl to a physician, who reported the allegations to deputies. The alleged abuser, Arnold Dean Lyles, 39, of 252 NW Neptune Court, was arrested April 13 on charges of cruelty to a child and battery. Following further investi-gation, the charges were amended to include sexual assault on a vic-tim under 12. The victim told deputies she never reported the abuse to other family members because Lyle gave her money and threatened to beat her. According to Siegmeister, the legal obligation to report the girls allega-tions to authorities extended to all district employees with knowledge of the girls claims, including those who reported them to their superiors. All of them have the same duty, he said. Supt. Terry Huddleston has declined to release information concerning possible in-house pun-ishment for school personnel who reportedly knew of the allegations but failed to notify DCF. (See related story, this page.) Gassett, the former principal at Niblack Elementary, was demoted in 2013 to assistant principal at Pinemount, according to an August 28 story in the Lake City Reporter. Neither she nor the three other dis-trict employees could immediately be reached for comment Saturday. According to the Florida Department of Corrections website, Lyles was released from prison in 2012 after serving six years for aggra-vated battery on a pregnant woman, child abuse, resisting an officer with violence, felony battery and assault. In 2000, he was sentenced to three years in prison for aggravated battery and grand theft auto. He remains in the Columbia County Detention Facility on $112,000 bond, according to the jail website.

T he plight of 276 teen-aged girls, kidnapped April 14 from their school in northern Nigeria, has rightly captured the worlds attention. Also being noticed is the failure of Nigerias government to locate the girls eight more were report-ed kidnapped late Monday or deal effectively with the perpetrators, a band of extreme Islamists who rage against the influence of nonbeliev-ers and the West. Now the United States is sending in a team of advisers to help with the effort. We hope that it goes well, but a rising tide of terror in oil-rich, highly divided and notoriously corrupt Nigeria bodes poorly for stability in the region. Known as Boko Haram its name is loosely translated as Western education is forbidden the kidnappers have been on a tear since early last year, avenging the governments detention of about 100 of their wives and daughters. In a disturbing, attention-getting video, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau vows to sell the girls and kill nonbelievers. Its unclear how influential Boko Haram can be, but many Nigerians have little confidence in a govern-ment that doesnt serve or protect them very well. In a cogent article in Foreign Policy, Lauren Wolfe reminds us of a long and dreadful history: Understanding what has happened to the Nigerian girls and how to rescue them means beginning to face what has happened to hun-dreds of thousands, if not millions, of girls over years in global armed conflict.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com P resident Obama focuses on the wealth gap as if that were the nations pressing economic issue. So long as theres a dispar-ity of ability, determination and luck, some people will be better off than others. The alarm to raise is not about the good fortune of some, but the bad fortune of the vanishing entrepreneur. Hes rarely seen these days as hope for economic rebound fades. The bitter facts lie in the findings of a survey by the Brookings Institution that the nations entrepreneurial spirit is dying. The vision of Sam Walton, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and their kind has been punished to the point of extinction. Strangled by endless spools of red tape and beaten down by taxes and government fees, businessmen are losing their zeal to convert an idea into a startup busi-ness or expansion of one already operating. Its too much work and risk, to get approvals and comply with laws written by bureaucrats with no spirit or vision. Such rewards as there may be are consumed by taxes. Thats why there are fewer jobs to feed growth. The Commerce Department had to borrow a microscope to see the minuscule 0.1 percent expan-sion in the economy in the first quarter. The Labor Department reported a productivity decline of 1.7 percent in the same period, meaning factories are less efficient, while unit labor costs rose 4 percent. Taken together, this means many businesses will continue to struggle to stay alive. Brookings economists Ian Hathaway and Robert Litan measured the pace of new business creation across a wide swath of industries. It has been in the decline for some time, but the decline became a plunge in 2006, when the rate of entry of firms fell by half. At the same time, the rate of shuttered store-fronts rose until reaching the critical point where business deaths exceed business births for the first time in three decades. The decline is nearly univer-sal, with only a handful of metropolitan areas lucky enough to escape the dreaded malaise. The blame for the situation falls squarely on Washington, where federal policies stifle innovation. Some 18,000 new federal regulations were imposed between 2008 and 2012, and many more are under consideration. Each one adds to the cost of doing business. Many firms have had no choice but to hire compliance experts to avoid running afoul of the increasingly complex maze of rules and requirements. The tax system is oppressive and complicated. No other developed nation has a corporate-tax rate as high as Americas, and the global tax policy encourag-es companies to leave the United States for a friendlier tax climate, taking their profits with them. Worst of all, the businessmen and entrepreneurs who provide the jobs and keep Americas economic engine running are vilified. You didnt build that, says Mr. Obama, with a sneer, and he raises the rhetoric of redistribution against the 1 percent. From Obamacare to the failed trillion-dollar stimulus schemes, where the government picks the winners and the losers, everything he does is antithetical to a dynamic marketplace. Until the White House begins showing a little appreciation, the entrepreneurs will continue to disap-pear. Without them, there wont be wealth to complain about.The vanishing entrepreneur Q Washington Times US aid in Nigerias kidnapping crisis should spark caution P olling hasnt brought much good news to Democrats this spring. In the latest blow, a Pew Research survey for USA Today reported Monday that 47 percent of voters said they expect to vote for Republican candidates in Novembers congressional election, against only 43 percent who plan to vote Democratic. If those numbers hold up, control of the Senate is likely to flip from the Democrats to the GOP. And if that werent enough, the enthusiasm gap is back. Most Republican voters report being certain they will vote this fall; by comparison, many Democrats are wavering. And one reason for Democrats irresolution, it appears, is President Obama: At this early point in the campaign, Obama inspires far less enthusiasm among Democratic voters than he did four years ago, Pew reported. The Democrats core problem in recent congressional elections has been simple: Their voters dont show up. They flock to the polls in presidential elections, but when the contest is merely for seats in the Senate and the House of Representatives, they dont leave the couch. As Sasha Issenberg wrote recently in the New Republic, in a congressional election there are now two Americas: one of reliable voters who turn out every two years; the other of unreliable vot-ers who dont. And Republicans have way more of the reliable kind than Democrats do. Overcoming that gap is the great challenge for Democrats this year, which is why theyve launched an audacious strategy that, if it works, could change the way future con-gressional campaigns are waged. Its based on the Obama campaigns success in turning out more votes than expected in 2012 through a massive field operation that knocked on doors and made telephone calls to persuade waver-ing Democrats and Obama-friendly independents to vote. The goal, Matt Canter of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee told me, is to make the electorate in 2014 look more like the electorate in 2012. The DSCC says it plans to spend $60 million on field operations this year, a huge increase from the $7.5 million it spent in 2010 when Democrats lost their majority in the House. Turnout is vital, but enthusiasm has almost nothing to do with turn-out, says Mark Mellman, a veteran Democratic strategist. Turnout has more to do with habit than with anything else. If you know whether someone voted in the last congres-sional election, you know whether theyre likely to vote in this one. Mellman has direct experience overcoming an enthusiasm gap. In 2010, he helped Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) win reelection despite the fact that Nevada Republicans were significantly more gung-ho than Democrats were. We got them to come to the polls anyway, he said. The Democratic effort has two main parts: message and mechan-ics. The message involves both positive and negative components. Democrats will portray themselves as fighting for what they call a fair shot agenda, including a higher minimum wage and pay equity for women, and theyll portray Republicans as defending the top 1 percent of the income scale at the expense of everyone else. Those messages arent intended solely to mobilize unreliable Democrats. Theyre also aimed at a category of voters the strategists call persuadables, the people once known as swing voters. In this case, the targets are blue-collar workers who resent the 1 percent, and women (especially unmarried women) who worry about social conservatives. It wont be a soaring, inspirational campaign, and Republicans are already denouncing it as trashy and cynical. But the Democrats backs are against the wall, and, as colum-nist Finley Peter Dunne wrote in 1895, politics aint beanbag. Equally important, the Democrats say they plan to devote far more money and effort than before to the mechanics of voter turnout: the canvassing, phone calls and individualized mailings that can get wavering voters to show up. Indeed, Mellman says, Research suggests that mechanics matter more than message. Im not encour-aging messageless campaigns; mes-sage still is important. But message wont matter much if you dont get voters to the polls. The DSCC says it hopes to help register tens of thousands of new voters, including African Americans in Georgia, Louisiana and Arkansas, where Senate seats are at stake. And by November, the DSCC plans to have no fewer than 4,000 paid field organizers in at least a dozen states. Will all this on-the-ground effort make the difference in November? The odds are still against the Democrats, if only because they are trying to hold on to endangered Senate seats in no fewer than seven states where Mitt Romney won in 2012. Republicans plan to match their spending and, if they can, much of the field effort. And so far the GOP hasnt nominated any eccentric candidates who look like easy pickings, as they did in 2010 and 2012. But if the Democrats big new field operation manages to increase their turnout by even a percent-age point or two, it could change the way future congressional cam-paigns are run.

Vote for your Favorite Businesses You Decide Who Wins! LOOK FOR THE 2014 BEST OF BEST BALLOT IN THE LAKE CITY REPORTER public works director job advertisement, written by an external company named Evergreen, posted the week of March 24. Public Works Street Supervisor Corey Williams, third-in-line in the public works management hierar chy, applied for the position. According to his applica tion, Williams has worked in construction since 1994, worked for the citys pub lic works department since 2002 and currently serves as the citys public works street supervisor. The city received appli cations from seven candi dates on the original post ing and granted interviews to four of them (one of which was a no-show) the following week. However, Williams was not interviewed. According to City Councilman Zack Paulk, some people in his dis trict felt there were some things that were not being done properly ... They asked me to look into it. Citizens in Paulks dis trict familiar with Williams asked their councilman why he wasnt selected for an interview. I think [the people in the community] felt as though Corey ... shouldve been given an opportunity. I agree with that, I think he shouldve been afforded an opportunity, Paulk said. I was like, Hey man, I dont know, but I tell you what If were doing anything wrong ... I have enough confidence if I bring it to Wendells attention, Wendells going to do the right thing. W2 Ministries Bishop Ronald W. Williams II made a public records request to review all applicants involved after he heard his brother Corey was not granted an interview. I didnt agree with the process, didnt agree with why he didnt get an inter view when clearly he has the credentials to do it, Williams II said. You can look at the applications and see he was more quali fied than any of the peo ple Henry interviewed. It had to be because [Corey Williams] was black. Corey Williams was not available for comment. Henry, however, said Williams skin color was not a factor rather, all applicants were going to receive interviews before city management inter vened. I did three and did not get a chance to finish the rest of them because every one was working and try ing to catch them between jobs, Henry said. There was a misperception of the interview process. I was going to give everybody an opportunity. When listening to com plaints from his constitu ents, Paulk said I headed [them] off before they started saying it was a racial issue ... Me, looking at it from my position, I always say I really try to throw the racial stuff out of it and see if theres any validity in the situation as far as are we doing any thing wrong? To be hon est with you, I thought our hiring practice was not in line because you have an HR manager [who is] sup posed to be involved in the hiring process through the interview, throughout the whole nine yards. And I came to find out that was not the case. Paulk said he did not speak with any member of the Williams family during his review of the citys hir ing procedure. Henry was the sole per son selecting and inter viewing applicants for the position, according to Johnson. We cant leave positions like that totally up to the director, Paulk said. Based off what I heard and when I talked to Wendell about it ... Thomas did the interviews and [Human Resources] was not involved. Henry was under the impression he had the authority to grant inter views and hire applicants. At that time it was me alone because I was under the understanding thats how weve always done interviews, said Henry, adding he has worked for the city for nearly 25 years. According to the citys personnel manual, The Department Director shall rank the applications based on qualifications for the job and determine applicants for interview. The manual contains no provisions requiring or bar ring department directors from forming a panel of fellow city officials when interviewing applicants, regardless of whether theyre internal or external applicants. According to Johnson, there was no panel [for the first interview]. Thomas did get a little ahead of staff, so I said, this has to be through the panel pro cess. Everything was put to a halt. He elaborated further, saying that entry-level posi tions dont typically involve a panel, but that assistant department director posi tions do. To ensure consistency and level the playing field, even in the private sec tor we dont do interviews without the HR managers being involved, said Paulk, who works as a general transportation manager at the Walmart Distrubution Center in Alachua. Paulk also speculated Williams was not selected for an interview because he had a Class B CDL, con trary to the job postings requirement of a Class A. He has a Class B and is working directly under [for mer assistant public works director Joey Raulerson] and hes doing everything thats required on a Class B, Paulk said. Then when Joeys position became available, why [was] a Class A mandatory? Paulk said he did not speak with either of the Williams brothers during his review of the citys hir ing procedure. It was just straight rac ist, Williams II said. Thats very odd to me you have a worker [Corey Williams] well-qualified for the job and you dont give him an inter view. If its not because of his experience, it has to be because hes black. Although Williams II believed Henry had already picked another person for the position, Henry said no selection was made. I wasnt even done with my process, Henry said. Im the fairest person you will ever meet. I dont look at color. I dont even care about color. I will do every body fair because I want to be treated the same way ... Im against [racial discrimi nation], I fight against that. I do not put up with that and I do not tolerate it. No applicants were selected for the posi tion. The city revised and reposted a revised job ad that said a Class A CDL must be obtained within six months. According to HR Director Michelle Greene, six of the original applicants applied again and five were grant ed interviews including Williams before a five person panel comprised of Henry, Fire Chief Frank Armijo, Assistant Executive Director of Utilities Paul Dyal, former City Council Member Bettye Lane and Alachua Chief of Police Joel DeCoursey, Jr. Greene was asked if interview panels are stan dard procedure for internal and supervisory positions. It would vary, Greene said. It really depends on the position. I know theres not a set thing on who is actually on the panel. Traditionally, it has been a five-person panel and it could range from other directors within the city to other community lead ers and other municipal ity directors as well. The assistant police chief inter views, they had a wellrounded panel including other police chiefs, a judge, a council member, a com missioner and so on. Greene said the second round with the five-person panel finished interviews Tuesday. Johnson and Greene said the current personnel manual was in the process of a review and rewrite, something that is done periodically by the city to stay up-to-date with legis lation and changes in the workplace environment. Johnson said interview panels for upper-level posi tions such as assistant department directors were already the norm, but that the manual revisions would include new language for malizing the panel process. We need to make sure were being fair, Paulk said. Make sure every body is following the same process and get everyone on the same page. If you use the panel, it ensures fairness ... You cant go wrong if its done right. When asked whether he would prefer more diversity at City Hall, Paulk said yes. In my opinion, I think we could use a little bit more, he said. When you really look at the demo graphics of the directors that report to Wendell, you do have some minorities in there. You have some females, and females are considered minorities as well. But for the most part, I still think we could use some more diversity. HIRING Continued From 1A TOURISM Continued From 1A OBITUARIES

By DAVID GINSBURG Associated Press OWINGS MILLS, Md. Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome established an unmistak able pattern in this NFL draft: His first three selec tions were defensive play ers from successful, bigname schools. The Ravens chose Florida State nose tackle Timmy Jernigan in the sec ond round Friday night, less than 24 hours after taking Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley with the 17th overall pick. We stacked the board based on where guys played and all the infor mation that we have, and we were just fortunate to get three players that have come out of national cham pionship teams the last two or three years, Newsome said. We were just fortu nate it happened that way. In the third round, Newsome picked one of Jernigans teammates on the national champion Seminoles, safety Terrence Brooks. The whole board was stacked for the offense, Newsome said, but the way it fell for us was with defensive players. Jernigan, selected 48th overall, started only two games in his first two years with Florida State. Last sea son, however, he started all 14 games and had nine tackles against Auburn in the national championship game. The 6-foot-2, 299-pound er from Lake City finished with 63 tackles and four sacks. He was tabbed in some mock drafts as a firstround pick, but his value might have dropped after he had a diluted drug test at the scouting combine. I was losing weight very fast, and it was causing me to cramp, Jernigan said. So my nutritionist, she wanted me to start drink ing a lot more water. Even during my workouts, she would have to put salt in my Gatorade and different things to keep me from cramping. After receiving word from the NFL about his diluted drug test, Jernigan tried to get the specifics. I never got any answers, he said. And then this week all of this madness started. Its just crazy. Newsome said, We were very comfortable taking him. Brooks started 13 games T immy Jernigan Jr. was selected in the NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens on Friday. Jernigan was the 48th player picked, a disappointment to many who thought he was first-round material. Being a competitor, that list likely includes him. Who knows what goes on in the vetting rooms of those NFL Draft decision-makers?

great choice the missed pick was for the team in question. If we had known Jernigan would go in the second round, we could have skipped day one and got a good nights sleep. The failed drug test might have cost Jernigan. It got him uninvited to the festivities in New York. He addresses the issue in the story that accompanies this column. An NFL shot is no surprise to those who know Jernigan. I have watched Timmy grow and mature to the kid he is today, said Columbia High head coach Brian Allen, a relative of Jernigan. He has made major strides in his ability as a football player and should know how proud I am of him. There are a ton of good players out there every year and just a few who get drafted. To have your name called out is a a privilege and something to be proud of. Jernigan and his father, Timmy Sr., could not be reached by phone Saturday, but are said to have watched Fridays telecast together. I saw his potential from day one, said Brandon Beadles, a fellow defensive lineman who coached Jernigan at CHS. When the light came on he had a special gear and ability to make it happen. This was always his thing. He said he would spend three years at college and then be drafted. It worked out just like he thought it would. As president of the Lake City Esposure Foundation, Adee Farmer introduced Jernigan to Bobby Bowden. The first time he went to FSU was for the Seminole Showtime Camp, Farmer said. They saw the potential then and he has been progressing ever since. He is a natural athlete and I expected to see him drafted. I knew he had the ability. Allen said Jernigans draft position might work in his favor, being selected by Baltimore and mentally. A couple of years ago, Baltimore won the Super Bowl and what they do is defense, Allen said. They are known for defense. They get after it read and run and that plays to Timmys strength. This will give Timmy something new to go out with a chip on his shoulder. He has never had that before and he is going to be motivated by those surroundings. Jernigan often mentioned Lake City when he was interviewed in college. In speaking to the Reporter this week, he thanked former coaches all the way back to middle school. He has been gracious in dealing with the newspaper. He has an endearing way about him, Beadles said. He is not like a lot of superstar athletes who are cocky. Jernigan may be cruising around in a new car, but who wouldnt splurge a little bit with a windfall? Nobody knows all the pushes and pulls on an athlete and he needs hometown support. As Farmer said, Hes drafted and hes from Lake City.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2014 O n this Mothers Day, Id like to reflect on where Id be without my mother, Karen, and my wife, Andrea, mother to our two daughters. But, dont quit reading thinking this is some fluff story thats as sappy as a Nicholas Sparks novel. Even with a houseful of girls, Ill share my stories and mistakes as to how Ive struck a balance between being a man, husband, dad, and an outdoorsman, and how moms make it all possible. As a husband and father, my jobs are to provide for my family, be a positive example for my daughters, work hard, attend school functions, and support my wife emotionally (I think thats what its called). Other duties as assigned include watching Disneys Frozen 43 times in one week, building a pink play house that took longer to build than the ancient pyramids, and mastering child seats that are more complex than a Rubiks Cube. My duties as a man/ outdoorsman consists of fishing, hunting, facial hair growing, ESPN watching, Florida Sportsman reading, grunting, and an annual Man-cation to the Bahamas. No women are allowed on Man-cation, and we survive off a steady diet of fresh caught snapper, grouper, triggerfish, conch, PBJs, and Junkanoo champagne soda. We never make our beds (or couches), wear the same clothes for a week straight, and fish 14 hours a day. Its glorious. If it werent for Andrea, Id have one pillow on my bed instead of 26. Im a simple man. If I were a bachelor Id live in a 2.5 room house a kitchen and a living room, equipped with an 85-inch 4K Ultra HD TV, and a functional bathroom. Why the .5? Ive never used a tub, and Id shower outside with a water hose. Id be a modern day pirate living on the coast of somewhere with a multi-colored beard straight from Duck Dynasty. Yet, theres more to life than fishing and hunting (it feels weird just typing that sentence). I live by the code of the five Fs: faith, family, fishing, food, and friends. All five are tied together tighter than a Bimini Twist knot by the mothers in my life. Andreas first sacrifice as a mother was while she was pregnant with Lilla. She was sick, her belly was growing faster than Shaq in middle school, and we had a fishing trip/vacation planned to the Bahamas. I asked, Do you care if I still go? She said No, and five minutes later I had my tickets booked. Maybe I was a little insensitive (wouldnt be the first or the last time), but the bottom line is she said yes because she knew how much I wanted to go. So, she sucked it up, spent a miserable week solo, and did it all for me and our unborn daughter. Andrea is like a master angler in the kitchen, and somehow shes figured out the right recipe to deal with two daughters that mix like oil and water. Lilla Kate, 6, has a memory like Rain Man, learned the alphabet and its sounds by 15 months old, is overly sweet and tender-hearted to a fault, and will break down if you even whisper the word spanking. Molly Catherine, 2, who only remembers how to pick child safety locks, could care less about the alphabet, knew how to pick her nose by 15 months old, is a whirling dervish of spunk, adventure, curiosity, mischievousness, and isnt afraid of spankings (I think she actually likes them). Andreas also a modern day working mom. Shes either busy working multiple jobs, taking the girls to gymnastics, cooking dinner, making lunch for school the next day, doing laundry, and cleaning, chasing or doctoring Molly. Without her taking care of our daughters, I couldnt do what Im able to do. Its really that simple. My mother had her own challenges. She had four kids who were all going in different directions. My dad was working, coaching our teams, or fishing in between sports seasons that never ended. So, when we fished, she kept the house under control, and they worked out a compromise. Whatever my dad spent on fishing, my mom had a matching fund that she could buy paint, curtains, or anything that scratched her creativity itch. Everybody won. I now realize my mother sacrificed everything for the four of us. That may seem dramatic. Everything? For the better part of eight years, she was either pregnant, had a kid in diapers, or both. Kids arent like an iPod. You cant just put them on play and walk away; they consume your time, your energy, and your life. Factor in the next 20 years of raising us, always having a meal ready when we got home from practice, or a fishing trip, and there was no time for what she wanted. Im sure she would have loved to travel the world, painting in Italy, visiting family in Sweden, or simply just getting away for a week. She gave up everything for us, and she never complained. My mom and Andrea make these sacrifices daily my mom for 35 years, Andrea for six. Without their dedication, I couldnt pursue my passion for the outdoors. Without them, this column wouldnt exist. So, on this Mothers Day, thank you to all of the mothers out there who allow my fellow outdoorsmen and I to do what we do. Rob Chapman IV is a tournament winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City. Hes an award winning marine artist, a graduate of Florida Gateway College and of Jacksonville University.

Lake City Reporter Week of Sunday, May 11-17, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section CColumbia, Inc.Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia CountyAssociated Press TAMPA Internet giant Amazon.com has begun the process for hiring more than 1,000 people for its two new distribution centers in Florida. One center in Ruskin will handle relatively small packages. The other in Lakeland will handle larger items. A large part of the jobs at both centers will involve shipping and packing materials. Amazon spokeswoman Nina Lindsey told area newspapers most of the employees will be hired a few months before the centers open. Construction is expected to be completed around the end of the year. The Seattle-based company started collected Floridas 6 percent sales tax on May 1. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott and Amazon announced a deal to create 3,000 new jobs in Florida by 2016. The details of that deal were not released.Hiring process begins in Amazons new hubs >> STATE NEWS: BUSINESS BRIEF PATIENT-FRIENDLY LOCATION MARTIN HOLZMAN, M.D. Radiation Oncologist CANCER CARE EXPERTISE Dean McCarley, M.D. Uma Iyer, M.D. Laurel Warwicke, M.D. Bobby Harrison, M.D.Gainesville 352.331.0900 Lake City 386.755.0601 cccnf.com By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County Clerk of Courts office is preparing to offer increased court information online, increasing public access to court documents, after a recent Florida Supreme Court order. A court ruling handed down in March lifted the 2006 ban against giving public access to court records if a county clerk wanted to do so. The court issued guidelines for how county clerks can make records more readily available and P. Dewitt Cason, Columbia County Clerk of Courts, said Columbia County will participate in the program. As far as benefiting our office, hopefully putting more court records online will cut down on the interruptions, he said. Were already short-handed, so hopefully it will cut down on the number of people that walk in and have questions regarding specific cases. They can view it online and save us all a lot of time. Cason said information regarding civil cases and criminal cases will be accessible through the Internet as part of the order, although his office currently has a limited amount of information posted online. We now have public records online, he said. Also, at this time, people can go online and view the dockets to our criminal and civil cases. The dockets do not contain images of the actual case pages, but tell the progress of the case, when the next hearing is scheduled, when the last hearing occurred or when a final judgment was issued. The information can be accessed by using either the persons name or the case number. The Florida Supreme Court, when it issued its recent order allowing additional information to be placed online, established that a statewide pilot program will monitor and coordinate all established clerk initiatives that are relating to electronic online records. Pilot program counties have to establish guidelines and make recommendations to the Florida Court Technology Commission and the Commission, if it agrees with the recommendations, will pass that on to the rest of us, Cason said. Cason said he wants Columbia County to be one of the pilot program counties, however JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterBerlinda Scippio, a circuit civil deputy clerk, scans in court documents Thursday.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 11-17, 2014 3C By MICHAEL LIEDTKEAP Technology Writer SAN FRANCISCO Apple is orchestrating a $3.2 billion acqui sition of Beats Electronics, the headphone maker and music streaming distributor founded by hip-hop star Dr. Dre and record producer Jimmy Iovine, accord ing to a published report. Citing people familiar with the negotiations, The Financial Times says Apple could announce the deal as early as next week. In its report posted online late Thursday, the newspaper warned the talks could still collapse if the two sides cant agree on some final details. Both Apple Inc. and Beats Electronics declined to comment to The Associated Press. The potential acquisition would add Beats Electronics popular line of headphones and music stream ing service to an Apple line-up that already includes digital music players and the iTunes store, the worlds top music retailer. If the deal is completed, it would be by far the largest purchase in Apple Inc.s 38-year history. The Cupertino company has traditionally seen little need to buy technology from other com panies, reflecting Apples confi dence in its ability to turn its own ideas into revolutionary products such as the Mac computer, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad. But Apple hasnt released a breakthrough product since its former CEO and chief visionary, Steve Jobs, died in October 2011. The innovative void has increased the pressure on Jobs hand-picked successor, Tim Cook, to prove he is capable of sustaining the success and growth that turned Apple into the worlds most valu able company and a beloved brand. Cook has shown a willingness to spend more of Apples money than Job ever did. Among other things, Cook began paying Apple stockholders a quarterly dividend and has progressively committed more money to buying back the companys shares. Apples pursuit of Beats Electronics is the latest indica tion that the company is having trouble generating growth on its own. Apple already sells Beats Electronics gear in its stores, giv ing the company insights into how much the trendy headphones and other audio equipment appeal to its customers. The negotiations also are tak ing place as the music market increasingly tilts toward stream ing and away from the down loads that once drove the success of Apples digital music store, iTunes. U.S. revenue from downloads which iTunes dominates dropped 1 percent to $2.8 billion in 2013, while streaming music revenue from the likes of Pandora and Spotify soared 39 percent to $1.4 billion, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. While downloads still com mand 40 percent of the market, streaming revenue now accounts for 20 percent of total revenue, up from just 3 percent in 2007. Beats Electronics LLC was founded in Santa Monica, California in 2008 by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Its headphones were manufactured by Monster Cable until the two companies parted ways in 2012. The head phones have become a bit of sta tus symbol worn by celebrities as well as audiophiles. In 2012, Beats bought stream ing music service MOG, which it transformed and relaunched as Beats Music earlier this year. The launch was fueled by a land mark partnership with AT&T that allowed up to five family members to pay $15 a month for the service as long as they were AT&T wire less customers. The deal broke the industry mold of charging each person $10 per month.Report: Apple on verge of buying Beats PHOTOS COURTESY WIKIMEDIA COMMONSThe Apple Inc. Headquarters sign is pictured.

By JIM KUHNHENNAssociated Press SAN JOSE, Calif. President Barack Obama is showcasing Wal-Mart, often a target of labor groups and other Democratic con stituencies, to promote advances in energy efficiency in his broad er campaign to confront climate change. Obama on Friday was to announce commitments from more than 300 companies and local and state governments to use solar energy technology. He also was announcing executive actions aimed at increasing energy effi ciency in buildings and appliances. The White House says the solar effort will power the equivalent of 130,000 homes and the admin istrative actions could reduce car bon pollution in an amount equal to taking 80 million cars off the road for one year. The White House chose WalMart because the company has committed to doubling the num ber of solar energy projects at its stores, Sams Clubs and distribu tion centers. But in choosing the giant retailer as the backdrop for his announce ment, Obama triggered a backlash from labor unions and pay equity advocates who say Wal-Mart pays low wages and who archly noted that Obama has made pay equity a central issue of his presidency. What numbskull in the White House arranged this? former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who served in the Bill Clinton administration, said in a posting on Facebook on Thursday. While hes in California, I would hope President Obama would speak directly to Wal-Mart employees and hear from them about their daily struggles to pay the rent and put food on the table, said Maria Elena Durazo, the exec utive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. Wal-Mart says it pays wages that are competitive in the retail industry. The clashing energy vs. jobs message is not new to the White House. Labor unions, for example, have pressed the Obama admin istration to approve the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada into the U.S. because it would create jobs. Environmentalists oppose the pipeline, and the administra tion recently put off a decision on whether to approve it, likely until after the November congressional elections. Obama was wrapping up a three-day trip mostly devoted to raising money for the Democratic Party. Complicating things for the White House, Obama on Thursday attended a fundraiser hosted by Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, who sits on Wal-Marts board of direc tors. In promoting the energy effi ciency announcement ahead of Fridays event, the White House said solar energy prices have dropped markedly in four years, with solar panels now costing about 60 percent less. All of this means more jobs in the industry, which is now supporting more than 140,000 good-paying American jobs and that are increasing at a rate of 20 percent per year, said Dan Utech, a special assistant to Obama on energy and climate change. The White House said Obama also would announce completion of energy efficiency standards for walk-in coolers and freezers typi cally used in grocery stores. The rule on walk-in freezers was proposed last August under an agreement with attorneys gen eral from 10 states and New York City. The states, along with House and Senate Democrats, have been urging Obama to move faster to implement proposed efficiency standards, including those for commercial walk-in coolers and freezers, which were due in 2012. Obama angers labor over Wal-Mart tout COURTESY WIKIMEDIA COMMONSWal-Mart has long been the target of labor groups but was recently toute d by President Barack Obama for being energy efficient by doubling the number of solar energy projects a t its stores, Sams Clubs and distribution centers. President selected the chain store to promote his energy efficiency campaign. he noted he has not yet applied. There are just a few minor things that were try ing to get in line right now and those are the hardware issues like certain types of (document) scanners and things of that nature, he said. Weve just about got that in line and as soon as they tell me I can be a pilot county, we will certainly sign up for it. Cason said he expects the pilot county program will consist of one large county, two medium counties and one small county. Cason said in the last week of April, represen tatives from the Florida Clerk of Courts Association began meeting with repre sentatives from the Florida Supreme Court regarding implementation of the pro gram. A lot of these images may have redaction (where infor mation has been electroni cally withdrawn, covered or omitted), Cason said. If people have specific questions regarding the online images or the infor mation that has been redact ed on the images, they can call the clerks office for clarification. By statute there are more than 20 exemptions to the information that can be placed on line. Some of the exemptions are juve nile names, mental health records, death certificates, as well as the names of vic tims of sexual assault cases. The Florida Supreme Court passed the order March 17. However, Cason said county clerks around the state were not notified until March 27. The order also lists stan dards for access to electron ic court records, including a security matrix governing access. The security matrix gov erns access to electronic court records based on user roles and applicable rules, statutes and administrative policies. The access securi ty matrix establishes user groups (judges and autho rized court and clerks office personnel, parties, general public, subscriber services, attorneys of record, state or local government agencies, certified law enforcement agencies, and department of Children and Families per sonnel), establishes access levels, assigns access level for each user group based on case type and assigns access level for all docket codes. The Access Governance Board, under the author ity of the Florida Courts Technology Commission, is responsible for maintaining the matrix by timely incor porating legislative and rule changes that impact access to electronic court records. Access permitted under the Access Security Matrix applies equally to electronic and paper court records. Patricia Perry, Columbia County Clerk of Courts chief deputy clerk, said employees of the clerks office are all authorized to scan in court documents. She said there are some employees who only file documents. Court records from 2007 to the present are currently scanned. CLERKContinued From 1CAs far as benefiting our office, hopefully putting more court records online will cut down on the interruptions. P. Dewitt Cason, Columbia County Clerk of Courts
By ANNE DINNOCENZIOAP Retail Writer NEW YORK Jenna Broems shops for clothes the same way she hunts for a new car: She con siders resale value. Broems, who lives in Stamford, Connecticut, only buys brands like Abercrombie & Fitch and 7 For All Mankind because she believes they will fetch the high est prices when shes ready to move on. Im now walking in like Whats the return of this? Am I going to be able to resell? said Broehms, 38, a teacher who has gotten $2,500 from stuff shes resold on ThredUP, an online resale site for used clothes. Americans increasingly are considering the resale value when they shop for everything from jeans to handbags. The habit is in part due to a growing number of web sites that make it easy for shoppers to buy and resell pre-owned goods. Its the latest reflection of the tough economy. Buying used goods at consignment shops became popular during the reces sion when Americans were hurt ing for extra cash. But the habit has stuck as peo ple got used to being able to wear the latest fashions without paying top dollar: Just as people lease a new car every couple of years so theyre always riding in style, reselling clothes is a way for Americans to spend money without spending a lot of addi tional cash. The trend also is a conse quence of the escalating cost of luxury. Rising prices of design er merchandise in recent years have tested the willingness of even affluent shoppers to pay full price. The price tag of a classic Chanel handbag, for example, is now $4,900 this year, up from $2,250 in 2007. The size of the resale market is tiny: about 10 percent of overall luxury goods including cloth ing, handbags, accessories and home furnishings, are sold in the aftermarket with about one percent of pre-worn goods sold online, estimates Forrester Researchs Sucharita Mulpuru. But data suggests its a fast growing area of retail: Shoppers seem to have resale value in mind. According to a survey conducted last year by market research firm The Intelligence Groups Cassandra Report, 44 percent of 900 shoppers between the ages of 14 and 34 think of resale value when they purchase things like electronics, furniture and clothing. Shannon Dolan, who lives in San Francisco, said shell buy a Louis Vuitton handbag over a Gucci one based on how much she believes it will command if she resells it. It absolutely changed the way I shop, said Dolan, who has made $10,000 on online resale marketplace TheRealReal by sell ing clothes. Im really thinking of the value and investment of some of the things Im buying. Resale sites have taken note. The sites marry the discounts found on resale online king eBay with tighter controls: They have staff to make sure designer goods are authentic. The sites also offer a faster way to sell than consignment stores, where shoppers can wait for months to have items sold and reap no more than 50 percent of the resale price. With the sites, items often sell within days and shoppers get as much as 80 per cent of the resale value. Many of the sites also have their own resale guides. ThredUP is loosely calling it their own ver sion of the Official Kelley Blue Book, referring to the online manual that offers resale values for cars. TheRealReal, which is coming out this summer with a mobile app thats a resale guide for consumers, said its resale calculations are based on prices of the 450,000 items it has sold since its founding in 2011. This is a broad narrative on how people are buying things and using things, said James Reinhart, co-founder and CEO of ThredUP, which launched as an online childrens swapping busi ness in 2009 and morphed into a resale site two years ago. Some analysts say the new focus on resale value could hurt sales at traditional retailers particularly at luxury stores. I think luxury retailers are going to run a little scared, said Marshal Cohen, a market research ana lyst. But resale sites say they can help retailers because shoppers are more willing to spend if they know they can easily resale items later. Some even are creating partnerships with traditional stores. 4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 11-17, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 nrrr n n Lake City Reporter Classifieds Classifieds dial-a-pro Reporter Service DirectoryTo place a Reporter Service Directory Ad in Columbia and surrounding CountiesHighlight Y our Reporter Service Directory Ad With Artwork-Ask Y our Representative For Details 386-755-5440 11 52 SW Business Point Dr. Lake City, FL 32025 Apply online @ www.sitel.comA great place to work!S i tel New Compensation Plan Increased Starting Wa ges 1985 Chrysler Fifth Av e.Strong motor & transmission, 318 cu. in., automatic, good chrome, no rust, antique.$800386-438-8557 Lawn & Landscape ServicePeeler/Dotson Lawn Care Lawn Mowing & Maintenance Free estimates 288-7821 or 984-7650 LegalColumbia County Emergency Man-agement will be holding our annual pre-hurricane season meeting on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. This meeting will be held in the Emergency Operations Center, 263 NWLake City A venue.

But appearances are deceiving. Not only is this small plot of land growing food, but it is also growing a potential prize-winning project and a new crop of budding agricultural scientists. The Land Lab gets its inspiration from Norman Borlagh, who did controlled experiments testing wheat hybrids beginning in the 1940s, explains FWHS agricultural science teacher Wayne Oelfke. They called him the man who fed the world. Oelfkes FFA students have recently completed a project they hope will be a prize winner in this years Nutrients for Life Helping Communities Grow competition. The goal is to create a hands-on program based on the Nutrients for Life curriculum that will educate and engage the community in plant nutrition, fertilizer use, soil science, and crop-related agricultural issues. Nutrients for Life is about the science of plant nutrition, but its also about community outreach and education, says Joan Kyle of the Nutrients for Life Foundations Orlando office. Thats why the judging panel is made up of a representative of the fertilizer industry, an FFA official, and an educator usually a teacher. In the past, Fort White has done an exceptional job in presenting both the scientific and educational aspects we look for. In their project, the students decided to study the effects of delivery method and timing of fertilizer on crop size, water conservation, and minimizing runoff, using mustard greens as the subject crop. University of Florida agricultural science instructors taught the students how to do scientific documentation, and the students built their own irrigation system under Oelfkes supervision. Sophomore Tyler Moseley explained the system: We decided to use drip line instead of micro-sprayers to make the water immediately available to plant roots and minimize While browsing some of the new and updated UF/ IFAS online publications, I was immediately drawn to one entitled Backyard Sugarcane. Actually, it was the word sugar that pulled me in.

We also got a chance to meet the owner, Jerry Roberts, and learn even more about the restaurant. Gators Dockside opened 13 months ago and since the doors opened it has been a happening place. It has a family friendly, sports themed, all-round fun atmosphere plus good food. Their website says Great food and great people. Life doesnt get any better than this.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: When I was growing up, I was taught to love animals and I had several. For various reasons I never had to deal with making the decision to put one to sleep. As I grew older, I realized we dont have the right to own living creatures, but we can take care of them. Eventually, my dog became ill and I had to make the choice to put him down. It was heart breaking, and while I support my local animal shelter, I vowed to never again have another animal I would have to make that decision for. Now my children are asking me to find a dog for them, and Im at a loss about what to do. Do I first make them aware that the animal we love will die in some fashion, including that we may have to decide to put him to sleep? Or do I let them have an animal and let them deal with the heartbreak when the time comes? Thanks for your input. ANIMAL GUARDIAN IN MICHIGAN DEAR ANIMAL GUARDIAN: If your children are young, let them enjoy having a pet to love without worrying about the fact that its life span may not be forever. If you do, they will learn about responsible pet ownership in good time, as well as the responsibility that comes when the pet becomes so old or sick that it can no longer enjoy life. While death is a part of life, I dont think that reality should be impressed upon your children now. DEAR ABBY: I am getting married soon, and I am not inviting one of my co-workers, Darrell, who I know will be hurt. I have looked up to him as an uncle for a few years. But my fianc and I decided not to invite him even though we are inviting other people from the office. Darrell was recently arrest ed for supposedly raping his daughter. He went to court, but the daughter failed to appear, so the charges were dropped. Since then, even though I con sider him a friend, I have seen him in a different light. I know he could be inno cent, but my fiance and I do not want him at our wedding around family and kids. I dont know how to tell him he wont be invited. What should I say or not say? BRIDE-TO-BE DEAR BRIDE-TO-BE: I cant think of a polite way to tell someone youre afraid your family members wouldnt be safe around him, and I dont think it will be necessary because Darrell is going to get the pic ture without anything being said. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Impulsive action wont help situa tions that are out of your control. Focus on self-improvement and picking up additional skills. Its what you have to offer that will count in the end. Romantic plans will ease your stress. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show everyone what you are capable of. Take on a challenge or get involved in a fundraising event and you will meet someone who has plenty of information, exper tise and support to offer you. Avoid intimacy with a colleague. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The personal changes you make and the effort you put forth to help others will bring you rec ognition, praise and opportunity. Get involved in events that allow you to network or socialize and you will meet someone who can improve your future. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep a low profile and refrain from sharing your thoughts and plans. Youll meet with opposition that will stifle you. Partnerships will be strained and best left alone until you have a clear-cut solution to how you can move forward. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put your best foot forward. You will gain popularity if you take part in community events or family gatherings. Dont be afraid to show emotion. Your honesty will impress someone special. Love is highlighted. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stabilize your personal assets and set a budget you can live with. Dont let anyone push you into something you feel is excessive or will add to your stress. Someone older or with more experience will offer worthwhile insight. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will need to use your intelligence and intuition to avoid aggressive situations. Handled properly, you can defuse any disruption before it has a chance to explode. A change of heart is likely to be the result of what you see and hear. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont believe everything you hear, especially if it has to do with investments, your health or a legal matter. Investigate all the potential outcomes before you get involved in something that is iffy to begin with. Stick close to home. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Enjoy life. Mental and phys ical stimulation will keep you young and in the game. Love and romance are on the rise, and plans to engage in a little adventure will entice someone special. Mixing business with pleasure will be a winning situation. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may want to share your inten tions and plans, but not everyone will be interested in hearing what you have to say. Choose your friends and partners carefully. Ulterior motives are apparent. Stick close to home. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at different prospects. You can make an interesting change if you update your resume and apply for an interesting position online. Your ideas will grab someones attention as well as create inter est in getting to know you better. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Money and health matters must take top priority. Take care of personal needs and do something that will ease stress and bring you joy. Use your imagination and define how you would like to use your skills to improve your stan dard of living. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Children dont need to know that animals will one day die Q Write Dear Abby at www.

evaporation. The system has flow meters to measure the amount of water used and timers for when to deliv er the water. As we used a soluble fertilizer, the system also delivered fertilizer. Gerald Murphy, a cer tified Master Gardener from Columbia County Agricultural Extension, was on hand for a live presenta tion of the students project on April 25. After examining the plants and the irriga tion system and listening to explanations of various parts of the project delivered by students, he was visibly impressed. I think you kids did a fine job, he said. Youve explained what you did well and the project was well designed. The greens were harvested on April 28, with a sample from each row being sent to the lab at the University of Florida to deter mine how much of the nitro gen in the fertilizer was taken up by the plants and estimate how much might be left in the soil to impact runoff into local water systems. Fort Whites FFA chap ter stands to receive $500 for participation in Helping Communities Grow. The winning project, which will be announced at the state FFA convention (June 30-July 4), will receive a $5,000 prize. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Q D.

Sugarcane is a tropical perennial grass that can be grown in many areas of the southern United States. It thrives in our humid, hot summers and is easy to grow in a home setting. No special soil is needed, and insect pests are adequately con trolled by natural predators, parasites and our changes of seasons. Rabbits must have a sweet tooth, also, as they seem to be the biggest pest problem for backyard sugar cane growers. In North Florida, planting should occur from mid-Au gust through mid-September so that roots can become established before frosts and freezing temperatures arrive. New plantings are started from 2 to 3 foot sections of mature stalks. Each section, or seed piece, should have about 6 good buds. The seed piece is planted horizontally below the soil so that each bud has a chance to grow into a stalk. Planting details can be found at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/sc052 Popular sugar canes include varieties of chewing canes, crystal canes and syrup canes. Chewing and syrup varieties are most often used by homeowners. Chewing canes are usually softer and have fibers that stick together when chewed. The fibers are easy to spit out after chewing and enjoy ing the sugary juice. Crystal canes have a high sucrose content which easily forms into crystals during commer cial processing. Syrup canes produce a juice which wont form crystals when concen trated into syrup. Edible plants in the home landscape can be decorative as well as nutritious. The Master Gardeners will be selling plants for your home and landscape at their annual Fort White Plant Sale at the Public Library Fort White branch. This fundraiser will be held on Saturday, May 17 from 9 a.m. 12 p.m. Call 752-5384 for more informa tion or help with gardening problems. SUGARContinued From 1D opened, an outside heated patio was built and is used year round, seating up to 60 diners so you can have a big group party out there. There is a total capacity for 230 guests. We asked him how the name came about and he says that the founder, John Forest, was water skiing on a Florida lake and came up with the name. The first Gators opened in Jacksonville in 1991 and there are currently 19 oth ers, all in Florida. So, contrary to what fans of that football team may think, the name has a different origin. At least that will make it more tol erable for people living in Tallahassee or Georgia. We are both those kind of people and it hasnt made us think twice about going and eating there. All in good fun, Jerry and John. Jerry Roberts owns three other Gators. Besides the one in Lake City he has locations in Gainesvlle, Ocala and Tampa. He is very interested in making Gators a community-in volved organization. There is evidence of that is when you walk in the front door and see the Chamber of Commerces Ambassador Award Gator head. It will be there for one year but Jerry is hoping hell get it for another year. He has sponsored local teams, tip-a-cop night, Relay for Life plus other local charities and he wants to continue to play an important role in our community. We asked Jerry what the most popular menu item was and he said the wings with Scooter sauce is no. 1. The no. 1 dessert ordered is the Chocolate Heaven Brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Instead of ordering our usual standbys we decided we would try some of the new menu items. We start ed with our Gatorizer choice of the Smoked Fish Dip ($6.99). It was a large serv ing on a bed of shredded let tuce with Captains crackers and a serving of sliced jala peos. We both liked this one even though Mary Kay doesnt like most fish. MK had the Buffalo Burger ($9.99) with a side of the hand-cut, skin-on French fries. The burger is tossed in your favorite wing sauce, grilled and topped with bleu cheese crumbles and crisp chopped celery which makes it like eating your favorite wing on a burger. Great idea. We both liked it, a lot. Genie ordered the Blackened Mahi-Mahi sand wich ($9.99), a generous serving served on a toasted Kaiser roll with a delicious tartar sauce. Cole slaw on the side was delicious, crispy and slightly sweet. We sampled the new Yucatan and the Peanut Butter & Jelly sauces, two of the four new wing sauc es. Although wary of the PB&J, we both absolutely loved it. It is a mixture of the Thai Peanut and the Sweet Thai Chili. The taste is peanutty, sweet and has a little kick. The Yucatan was also delicious and you might want to give them both a try. Lets talk about the wings. We are both wing-lovers and have tried most of the sauces. You may not know it but you can order them in three different styles: boneless, drums and flats and there are 20 different sauces to pick from. Plus you can have them grilled, buffalo or breaded. Who knew ordering wings could be so involved? Oh, also you can order 6, 10 or 50 wings. Some of the other new menu items are Mac N Cheese burger ($9.99), a burger on a bed of four-cheese mac n cheese, topped with cheddar, anoth er layer of mac n cheese and bacon bits. What Southerner wouldnt like this one? How about the Bacon, Egg and Cheese burger? A burger ($9.99) with yellow American cheese, fried egg and topped with two slices of bacon. You can have breakfast anytime at Gators. Ahi Tuna is a new feature available as a Garotizer ($9.99) served rubbed with sesame seeds, seared rare, and served on a bed of cabbage with Wasabi Cucumber dress ing. The Ahi Tuna steak ($12.99) can be ordered grilled or blackened medi um rare with fresh steamed vegetables and yellow rice. Bleu cheese and bacon encrusted sirloin ($12.99) caught our eye too. An 8 oz. fresh cut sirloin, sea soned then encrusted with melted bleu cheese crum bles and chopped bacon. It is served with mashed potatoes & gravy and fresh steamed vegetables. The summer salad ($9.99) is mixed greens served with red onions, marinated chicken, granny smith apples, strawberries, mandarin oranges, craisins, bleu cheese crumbles with raspberry walnut vinai grette. Goodness, only thing left is the kitchen sink. Weve got to men tion our favorite waitress, Mallory Franey. She is wonderful and makes every visit fun and never dull. She loves her animals and her customers. Her smile and great service will make your visit to Gators even better. Now on to desserts. To be honest, by dessert time we have usually had a sufficiency. This expres sion was Genies mothers expression because she said we all know a lady doesnt say no thank you, Im full. We have had the apple crisp ($5.49) and it was delicious. Made from cinnamoned-fresh Granny Smith apples, caramelized and piled high with buttery crisp crumbles plus topped with vanilla ice cream. We liked the large, stemmed glass it was served in. Other choices include Ricotta Brulee Cheesecake, Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Brownie with ice cream and caramel sauce, Reeses Peanut Butter and Chocolate pie, Chocolate Lovin Spoonful, By the way, there is full bar service including 20-plus types of beer. Since we hav ent been there on a Game Day, we called our friend, Ron Foreman, for informa tion. Ron said that it is the place to be on Game Day. Hes talking basketball and football games. The place gets humming and busy on game day and the crowd swells as the game wears on. There are large tele vision screens all the way around the restaurant so you have a good view where ever you sit. You wont miss a single play. Ron says, Your favorite beverage with wings and all your buddies gathered around, it doesnt get much better.
