The SVTA board will take more permanent action at its June meeting. The 1983 handbook doesnt address issues concerning comp time that have generated controversy in recent weeks, so the board voted not to allow comp time to be cashed out for the next month. The boards next meeting is on June 9. At that meeting the board plans to finally approve the March 26, 2012 draft handbook, then amend that document to address comptime issues. Board members Bucky Nash of Columbia County and Ricky Gamble of Suwannee County had asked the board to adopt the 2012 policy as its current manual at Tuesdays meeting in Live Oak, but the motion failed. Hamilton County Commissioner and SVTA board member Beth Burnam said she couldnt vote to adopt the 2012 policy because she hadnt read it. The 2012 policy, drafted but never approved by the board, says administrative staff can receive overtime pay if approved by the administrator. The vote to eliminate comp time made an exception for employees who are fired, quit or retire.

Marilee Boozer, 24, of Lake City, was arrested by the Columbia County Sheriffs Office Tuesday afternoon at her home. She was charged with petit theft and possession of a controlled substance and booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $5,000 bond. Murray Smith, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer, said the investigation was launched Friday after the sheriffs office was contacted by school officials.

The project, with a total generation of 320 megawatts, would replace three 1950s-era plants. The company also plans to build a $1.5 billion natural-gas power plant in Citrus County while also shutting down two old coal-fired generating units. Duke, the states second-largest electric utility, indicated last year that it was likely to move forward with such a plan. But the announcement comes after other high-profile changes that have included shuttering a damaged Crystal River nuclear plant and scrapping plans to build two nuclear reactors in Levy County. The new 1,640-megawatt plant would be built on 400 acres of land adjacent to the companys Crystal River complex and would start producing electricity in 2018. The two coal-fired units, which also are at Crystal River, are expected to be shut down that same year.Big changes to Suwannee power plant BoozerGas tax renewal hearing to be set Four-cent levy is already in effect.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County officials are hoping to set a date when they can have a public hearing on renewing the fourcent local option fuel tax that funds local road projects.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 RALEIGH, N.C. American Idol singer Clay Aiken won what had been a hotly contested Democratic primary for a North Carolina congressional seat according to a final, unofficial vote count that was posted Tuesday, a day after the accidental death of his closest rival. Aiken will face Republican incumbent Renee Ellmers in November in the GOPleaning district where Mitt Romney won nearly six in 10 votes in 2012. Ellmers won by 56 percent that year and is looking for a third term. The county-by-county tally of the 2nd Congressional District race posted by the state Tuesday confirmed Aiken got more than 40 percent of the vote needed to win the three-candidate race. On Monday, second-place finisher Keith Crisco, 71, died after falling at his home. Hours earlier, campaign manager Christine Botta said they had counted the absentee votes in two key counties, forcing Crisco to acknowledge defeat. He had decided to concede his loss to Aiken on Tuesday, she said. Aiken issued a statement of regret at Criscos death on Monday and said he was suspending campaign activities for a time. Aikens campaign website was black but for that statement on Tuesday. Aikens campaign declined to comment Tuesday. 14 15 16 17 18Thursday Friday Cape Canaveral 85/72/ts 84/67/sh Daytona Beach 85/71/ts 81/61/pc Fort Myers 89/70/ts 83/63/ts Ft.

According to Tampa Fire Rescue, Krystle Garcia was in labor at home Monday morning when she called 911. The dispatcher alerted paramedics, but they werent quick enough to get there before the baby started to arrive. Authorities say the dispatcher expertly and compassionately talked Garcia and her daughter Jazmine through the delivery of the baby boy. During the more than eight-minute call, Jazmine calmly relays the dispatchers instructions to her mother, gets towels and other items for the baby and secures the babys head. When paramedics arrived, they took the baby and Garcia to a hospital. Authorities say both are doing fine. The baby was named Joseph James Snyder.Video shows Fla. officer kicking child to ground BOYNTON BEACH Boynton Beach police are investigating after a video surfaced of one of their officers kicking a childs legs from under him while the childs hands appear to be restrained behind his back. Police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said one officer has been placed on administrative duty after the footage was found online Tuesday. Its unclear what the child was being charged with. Slater said she could provide no further details because the incident was under investigation by the internal affairs section. The video shows two boys apparently being arrested. An officer approaches one and appears to kick him, causing the boy to fall to the ground. Slater says no formal complaints have been filed over the incident but police are concerned as to the initial appearance of the video.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 3A Summer Leagues Now Forming Short SeasonCall for details 755-2206 Visit us online Monday Night Fellowship All Ages Starts June 2Ladies Trio Night Tuesday 6:30Starting May 27 ~~~ Mixed League Nights Sundays & Wednesdays Starting May 28–June 1 Adult Youth Family Fun League Starts June 5thAssociated Press TALLAHASSEE — Responding to pleas from highway troopers and the state’s sheriffs, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Tuesday he will veto a bill that could increase the speed limit on Florida high ways from 70 to 75 mph. Scott said that he has decided to “stand with law enforcement” who urged him to veto the legislation that narrowly passed the Florida Legislature late last month. Earlier this month, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who was mourning a colleague killed after being struck by a vehicle told Scott that raising the speed limit “wasn’t a bright idea.” Trooper Tod G. Cloud also told Scott the job he feared the most was work ing an accident on Interstate 75 because people “do not drive with common sense.” Cloud talked to Scott follow ing the Ocala funeral of 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 acci dent. “I want everybody to stay safe, I don’t want anybody to be injured,” Scott said. “I think by doing this we are doing the right thing for our troopers and the right thing for law enforcement. I’ve been to too many law-enforcement funer als.” The bill (SB 392) would not raise speed limits automatically, but would allow the Department of Transportation to increase them when it saw fit. The depart ment could also raise the speed limit from 65 to 70 mph on rural, four-lane divided highways and up to 65 mph on other roads. Legislators only approved the bill after a contentious debate where opponents said raising Florida’s speed limits would embolden motorists to drive faster and result in more accidents. Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, and one of the sponsors of the bill, contended that the safety concerns were not accurate. “Unfortunately, the issue became more about emotion than about facts,” Clemens said. “We’ve raised the speed limits in the past and it simply did not result in increased fatalities.” The maximum speed on Florida highways has been 70 miles per hour since 1996. The Florida branch of the motorist organization AAA and several Florida sheriffs praised Scott for his decision to veto the legislation. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, who is currently president of the Florida Sheriffs Association, called the veto “welcome news.” Kevin Bakewell, senior vice presi dent of the Auto Club Group, said that “maintaining Florida’s cur rent speed limits will undoubtedly prevent injuries and save lives on our roadways.”Scott to veto speed limit bill From staff reports LIVE OAK — The annual farmers market at John H.

Hale Farmers Market opens Friday Utilities in Florida and other states have increasingly shifted to cleaner-burning natural gas in recent years while moving away from coal plants. Duke said the new plant would be served by a proposed natu ral-gas pipeline that is expect ed to stretch from Alabama to Central Florida. That pipeline, known as the Sabal Trail proj ect, is a joint venture of Spectra Energy Corp. and NextEra Energy, Inc., the parent com pany of Florida Power & Light. “We are making these investments to continue pro viding our customers with the most cost-effective ener gy solutions and highest level of reliability with limited environmental impact,” Alex Glenn, Duke’s state president in Florida, said in a prepared statement Tuesday. The plan is subject to approval from the Florida Public Service Commission, and Duke said it expects to file a formal proposal May 27. Meanwhile, at Duke’s Himes Energy Complex near Bartow, the utility would undertake a $160 million upgrade project that would expand the generating capaci ty of the plant. The potential for adding the new Crystal River natural-gas plant and shutting down the old coal-fired units was part of a wide-ranging settlement reached last year by the utility and representatives of con sumers and business groups. That settlement, which was approved by the Public Service Commission, drew heavy attention because it also dealt with scuttling plans for the Levy County nuclear project. Earlier last year, Duke decid ed to permanently shut down the damaged Crystal River nuclear plant, which had not generated power since 2009. The damage involved cracks in a containment building and touched off a complicated debate about whether the utility and its predecessor, Progress Energy Florida, should close the plant or try to fix it. DUKEContinued From 1A By TONY Residents hoping to signup for the Lake Shore Hospital Authority’s indigent care program will face a new eligibility require ment. Monday afternoon the board unanimously approved a new requirement stipulating anyone who wants to be a client for the local indigent care program must have signed up for the Affordable Care Act. People who are refused acceptance in the Affordable Care Act program will be considered for the Hospital Authority’s indigent care program. “We’re going to require that everybody that applies for this pro gram, before they are approved, to apply for the Affordable Care Act,” said Jack Berry, Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board execu tive director. Berry said the new require ment could impact the Hospital Authority’s indigent care program. “If it works the way it should work, it should eliminate this pro gram,” he said. “Is it going to work that way, I don’t know, but we’ve got to give it a shot and see.” Berry described the Affordable Care Act and the Columbia County Indigent Care program as a pair of last resort programs for people who can’t afford traditional insur ance. The Hospital Authority’s indi gent care program has 387 people, including 46 renewals last month and nine new applicants. “Even if we have only one person, we’ll keep the program going,” Berry said. “We’re here to help people. We don’t have a set number of people we have to have in the program for it to work.” Berry said the LSHA will work with the Columbia County Health Department and he hopes they’ll be able to install a station at the Hospital Authority Building to help potential clients. “We going to work with the health department to see if we can come up with a plan to have some body here that can walk potential clients through the process,” he said. “It will have to be done on a computer.” The open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act is Nov. 1 Dec. 31.

The four cent local option fuel tax will expire Dec. 31 if it is not renewed. The four cent local option fuel tax was last renewed in 2002, which established the Dec. 31 expiration date. According to state law, in order for the tax to contin ue, a new ordinance must be adopted by July 1. Williams said the measure does not pave the way for a new for an additional gas tax. “If this is renewed the effective rate of taxation (on fuel) will not increase over the current account,” he said. The funds generated from the Local Option Fuel Tax are restricted by law and must be used for roads, road improvements and transportation expenditures. The four cent Local Option Fuel Tax is expect ed to gener ate $2,112,000 countywide annually and the funds are divided among the local governmental entities. The City of Lake City gets 27.5 percent of the funds, while Fort White will get 1.1 percent. Williams was uncertain when the local option fuel taxes were first initiated but noted, “they have been long standing taxes levied in the county.” The presentation at Thursday’s meeting will not be the hearing, just a request to set a hearing date. COUNTYContinued From 1A ‘If this is renewed, the effective rate of taxation (on fuel) will not increase over the current amount.’— Dale Williams the arrest of school nurse Boozer.” Smith said authorities have not determined the exact amount or type of drugs that were taken from the school nurse’s station. He said the investigation is continuing as they try to determine those facts. Upwards of 30 pills have been taken, he said. Smith said concerns about the missing pills were brought to authorities’ attention by school officials. “They kind of got sus picious because there had been allegations some pills had been dropped down the sink,” he said. “That’s how they initially became suspi cious and they had us come in and conduct an investi gation.” Smith said he was also told that a student’s parent came to the school about missing pills. “That combined with some clerical auditing errors, got them suspicious and they called us and we conducted the investiga tion,” he said. Boozer’s resignation was part of the school board’s consent agenda addendum items Tuesday night indi cating her resignation was effective May 9. Her res ignation was not a part of the original agenda issued earlier in the week. Following Tuesday night’s school board meeting, Terry Huddleston, Columbia County Superintendent of Schools, said he too is uncertain when Pinemount Elementary School officials first noticed pills were miss ing. “I do not know,” he said, “That’s part of the investi gation and I’ve not seen it.” He also said he does not know what kinds of meds went missing. However, he noted that he was confident with the safeguards the district has in place. “I have not seen the report, however there are very, very stringent proto col for administration of or receiving of meds at school,” he said. “A lot of that comes from the state level. I don’t think there is any need to change anything that we’re doing. This is one of those isolated incidents I would never dream of dealing with. So our procedures are cor rect and I don’t see anything else to do, except our folks have to follow those proce dures — they’re more than adequate.” BOOZERContinued From 1A ‘There are very, very stringent protocol for administration of or receiving of meds at school.’— Terry Huddleston, Superintendent of Schools


F our-year-old Taylor Dyer died in what authorities say was a drunken-driving car crash last weekend. He was a passenger in an SUV that struck a concrete median on Interstate 55 in in Bolingbrook, Ill., flipped, and ejected him and two other young boys from the back seat. The other boys, 2 and 7, were seriously injured. The alleged drunken driver who caused this horrific accident? Shannard Dyer, Taylor’s father. He has been charged with six counts of aggravated DUI. Many people think DUI-related deaths among children typically happen when an impaired driver crashes into a car in which chil-dren are riding. But a study published recently in the journal Pediatrics confirmed earlier stud-ies that show that’s not true. The study found that 65 percent of children killed in crashes involv-ing alcohol are riding with the impaired driver. The horrific toll: From 2001 to 2010, 2,344 children under 15 were killed in crashes involving at least one alcohol-impaired driver, the study found. Other disturbing findings: – Child seat belt use decreased as the child’s age and the blood-alcohol level of the driver increased. The drunker the driver, the older a child, the less chance the child will be belted in. – In more than 7 of 10 cases, the impaired drivers survived the crash in which their child passen-ger died. That strongly suggests that had the child been properly restrained, he or she would have survived as well. – Drunken-driving crashes in which child passengers died were more likely to involve only one vehicle and happen at night com-pared to crashes in which children died as passengers of nondrinking drivers. Encouragingly, the number of children killed riding with an alco-hol-impaired driver decreased by 41 percent in the decade studied, the authors reported. That mirrors a national decline in motor vehicle crash deaths and drunken driving deaths over the same period. What will it take to drive down these appalling figures? The study’s authors suggest expanded use of sobriety checkpoints, tougher enforcement of DUI laws and seat belt laws, and wider use of igni-tion locks for DUI offenders, even first-time offenders. “These are tragedies that we’ve got to find ways to prevent,” says lead author Dr. Kyran Quinlan, a pediatrician at Erie Family Health Center in Chicago. People know that if they get caught driving drunk they’ll likely lose their license. But they may not know that if they’re convicted of drunken driving in Illinois and had a child in the car at the time of the violation, they face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine even if no one is hurt. Shannard Dyer is out of the hospital and in jail, awaiting trial. The courts will decide Dyer’s innocence or guilt. If he is convicted, the pun-ishment may be harsh or light. His son will still be dead.Anyone who gets drunk and then piles kids unrestrained in the back seat of an SUV isn’t likely to be per-suaded by all the powerful reasons not to do that. That person serves best as a warning to others: You may not die from your recklessness but ... you may wish you had.

Just as upsetting was what didn’t pass that could have helped affirm the public’s right to know. Ms. Petersen, who has been head of the First Amendment Foundation since its creation in 1995, acknowledges that most of the exemptions passed would not have a major impact. But she still was concerned with the number of exemptions, which topped by far even the 12 passed during a regular session and five special sessions in the paranoia of post-Sept. 11. Of special concern to Ms. Petersen was Senate Bill 1320, which provides exemptions from pub-lic records for information held by the Office of Financial Regulation relating to family trust com-panies. The exemptions make it almost impossible to find out how these companies operate. The con-stitutionally required “public necessity statement” in SB 1320 lists concern that identifying members jeopardizes their personal and financial safety and that release of some information could “damage a family’s reputation.” We’re sorry, but inconvenience is no reason to close public records. Ms. Peterson also was baffled by the death in the House of SB 1648/HB 1151, after it passed the Senate unanimously. The bill would have made it easier to request public records. The Florida League of Cities was leery at first, but the First Amendment Foundation worked with the League on changes, and in the end, the league’s president endorsed the bill. Part of the five-point agenda of the presession “Work Plan 2014” of Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford was improv-ing government accountability. It’s a shame Mr. Weatherford apparently forgot that goal over the session’s 60 days. There was a bit of relief from bills that didn’t pass, including an exemption for the university presidential searches and an exemption for email addresses held by tax collectors. But it’s a sad day when the public is left to celebrate not having a precious right further eroded. Our eroding rights Q Tallahassee Democrat Children in cars with drunk drivers W hat is it about girls going to school that infuriates so many grown men, turning them into beasts? The appalling abduction of well more than 200 Nigerian school girls and the shocking delay in the West before mobilizing a response are two more indications of how far the world is from nailing this civilization thing. The girls, some of Nigeria’s best and brightest, were dragged out of bed by Islamic militants and spirited away in trucks. According to a girl who escaped, they were treated like slaves. Two weeks later, as the Nigerian government hemmed and hawed about not finding the girls and with countries such as the United States and Great Britain observing diplomatic niceties before helping, militants were boasting about selling the girls into sexual slavery or as child brides. On Capitol Hill, all 20 women senators, who rarely agree on anything, demanded to know why it was tak-ing so long to find the stolen girls. We are reminded of Malala Yousafzai, the brave Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out about the importance of educating girls. As she heals, the 15-year-old wrote in her book, “I Am Malala,” that her life’s work will be the education of girls. We remember the years of terror in Rwanda where women and young girls were gang raped to impregnate them as a weapon in civil war. As Americans pull out of Afghanistan after more than a decade, the Taliban has quickly reverted to shutting down girls’ schools, terrorizing women who walk alone and otherwise trying to drive females back to the Stone Age. Americans have traveled a long, winding road toward equality in education. Even many educated fathers (and mothers) wanted their daughters to marry, breed and obey their husbands more than they wanted female children to get an education, use their minds and be able to support themselves. Ignorant Islamic militants wrongly use misunderstood religious precepts as an excuse to keep girls uneducated and used as sex slaves without rights or, often, decent liv-ing conditions. These militants burn with righteous fervor but they are basically cowards who fear a world where their prehistoric beliefs are not ascendant. What should scare us is how many misguided militants there are and how quickly they can prevail in countries where poverty and political turmoil tamp down human rights. As Vladimir Putin is to Ukraine’s sovereignty so are Islamic militants to the rights of women everywhere. Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has become an out-spoken champion of ending discrim-ination against girls whether they are in Nigeria, Pakistan or India. He says that discrimination against girls is akin to the discrimination against blacks and that the world has a duty to fight both. He is cor-rect, and President Obama should be more forceful on this issue. Too many men are too unsure of their manhood and their place in the world to tolerate the prospect of girls becoming their equals. So they grab their guns and some kind of uniform and get together in gangs – such as Boko Haram in Nigeria – to try to go back to an era where violence against women was accepted. Every day we see the vestiges of the cruelty people inflict on others. The sultan of Brunei oversees new laws that call for flogging and ston-ing same sex couples, adulterers and women who have abortions. The owner of the Los Angeles Clippers hates black people. A bigot in the West steals a million dollars in grazing rights from taxpayers and is lionized by politicians. The juxtaposition of the World Economic Forum for Africa being held in Nigeria while militants open-ly kidnap school girls is maddening. We must make human traffickers afraid. We must punish those who degrade others. We must make clear that civilized people will not tolerate this evil. When children anywhere are denied education and brutalized, it’s OK to be angry, very angry, and to demand retribution.Evil must be confronted Q Chicago Tribune Ann Q McClatchey News Service columnist Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.4AOPINION

From staff reports Each year in the U.S., thousands of motorists crash into emergency vehi cles, including fire trucks, ambulances, and police cars. These crashes often occur at intersections while an emergency vehicle is running lights with/with out sirens or while they are parked on scene with lights running. According to a report from the National Fire Protection Agency, more than 4,000 firefighter inju ries in 2012 occurred in a motor vehicle accident, while they were respond ing/returning from an acci dent. As such, Columbia County and Lifeguard Ambulance Service would like to remind motorists of some tips in order to safely share the road with emergency vehicles and personnel.Safety Tips:1. Don’t drive distracted: Q Remember to check surroundings and look in rearview and side mirrors Q Turn down the music volume, as vehicles are now designed to be more sound proof making it difficult to hear approaching sirens Q Do not drive while using headphones, head sets, or other listening advices (exceptions, includ ing hearing aids, are listed in Florida Statute 316.304) Q Pay attention to the road and do not text, email, or read while driving2. For stopped vehicles: According to the Move Over Law: Q On a multi-lane road way, check for an opening, use signals, and safely move to the opposite lane of the emergency vehicles and SLOW DOWN Q If unable to move over or if on a two-lane roadway, decrease speed to at least 20 mph below the posted speed limit3. Vehicles from behind: Q Slow down and check the surrounding traffic flow Q Identify an opening in traffic, use signal, and safely move as far right as possible Q Stop completely Q Wait for the emergen cy vehicle to be a safe dis tance ahead and pull back on the road Q Stay at least 500 feet behind an emergency vehi cle running lights with/without sirens4. Intersections: Q Use extreme cau tion at intersections, as emergency vehicles may be approaching from any direction and may need to turn across your lane Remember to imple ment these tips and safe ly share the road with the first responders, as they put themselves in danger every day in responding to emergencies throughout the community. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 FREE book by doctor reveals what the drug companies don't want you to know!

That recommendation comes from a new UF study that showed that older adults who read a text and then described what they had read to someone else remembered more details of the text than older adults who simply re-read the pas sage multiple times. The findings appear in the April issue of the jour nal Aphasiology. Older adults are better able than younger adults to recall the gist of infor mation they learn, but they have more difficulty remembering details, said lead investigator Yvonne Rogalski, Ph.D., who con ducted the research as part of her doctoral dissertation work at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. “Older adults can rely on things they’ve learned in the past and they can build on that vast wealth of semantic information that they’ve collected over the years. That works as long as the information is famil iar, but where it breaks down is when they have to read something that is unfamiliar and has a lot of details,” said Rogalski, now an assistant professor in the department of speech-lan guage pathology and audi ology at Ithaca College. For the UF study, 44 healthy adults ages 60 to 75 used one of two methods to recall details from texts on real — but unusual — ani mals. Participants who used a technique called “Read and Reread Attentively” read the entire passage aloud once, then re-read each paragraph three times aloud in succession. Those in the “Read Attentively, Summarise and Review” group read the whole text aloud once, then for each paragraph they read it aloud, summarized it from memory and then re-read it aloud again. Participants in both groups were tested immediately after studying and 24 hours later. The researchers found that participants who sum marized the information aloud remembered more details about the texts than those who just re-read the material. In addition, com bining the summarization method with an immediate post-test showed the most benefit for remembering text details after a 24-hour delay. “We think it is effective because by reading the information and then put ting it into your own words you have to do quite a bit of processing of not only the information, but also the relationships among bits of information,” said Lori Altmann, Ph.D., an asso ciate professor in the UF department of speech, lan guage, and hearing scienc es, and a study co-author along with John Rosenbek, Ph.D., also a professor in the department. “Picking out the relationships that are important to you as you see them can help to order the information in your own memory.” Older adults can put the principles of the summari zation technique to work for themselves whenev er they want or need to learn detailed information, such as a magazine arti cle or medication plan, the researchers say. They suggest that people read the information and then describe it from memory to a partner who can check for accuracy. “The RASR method is a very functional treatment and it’s something that healthy older adults or even people with mild demen tias could use on their own to try and improve their memory,” Altmann said. “It doesn’t involve anything high-tech, and that’s the beauty of it.” Dear Readers, Are you tired, and frequently cold? Do you have poor memory? Are you overweight and losing hair? You are probably wondering why I ask such personal questions. I’ve been your “dear pharma cist” for 15 years so I’ll tell you like it is: All of those symptoms could be connected to one thing, low thyroid hormone lev els in the body. It’s worth testing for, but the prob lem is that conventional tests miss a lot of thyroid disorders. You’re told “It’s normal” when you feel terrible. If overlooked, you’ll be on the medica tion merry-go-round, and you better hold on. Medications and vita mins can support your thyroid gland, but it has to first be detected. Over the past year, I’ve been involved in a special proj ect, my best professional accomplishment. I’ve been working closely with my friend and thyroid expert, Dr. David Brownstein. Together we have created an online experience called a “summit” that will enable anyone from around the world to listen to, and watch a slide presentation from home. It’s free and to sign up you just go to and ‘save your seat.’ We begin broadcasting various presentations on June 2, 2014 for 7 life-changing days. People have asked me why I am hosting the thy roid summit. I had a mild case about 10 years ago, that went undiagnosed for about 2 years, and I figured it out myself. I put a picture of myself for you to see in my book, Thyroid Healthy which is out now. It’s not the most flattering picture because I had 15 pounds on me, but I’m proud of myself now, because I am 49 years old, only 110 pounds and have perfect thyroid, and I’m on a mis sion to help others. We’ve interviewed 32 health care experts. Among the greats, you will hear from Dr. Mercola, Mike Adams founder of Natural News, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, Dr. Jonathan Wright, Dr. Kent Holtorf, Actress and thyroid thriver Gena Lee Nolin, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, celebrity nutritionist JJ Virgin, Activist Mary Shomon and many others. Dr. Brownstein and myself are also in the line up. If you’re not aware of a thyroid problem, you could develop psycholog ical, cardiovascular and neurological disorders. At the thyroid summit, you will learn: How anxiety, bipolar, mood swings and depres sion are tied to thyroid How certain medica tions can induce thyroid disease Why a diagnosis of chronic fatigue and fibro myalgia are often given to thyroid patients What lab tests actually uncover it What natural reme dies work to relieve symp toms Which medications and supplements help, and which harm How to help your dog or cat with thyroid disease I’m so proud of this project and the goodness that will come from it. The thyroid summit will help you rediscover health and educate yourself well enough to speak to your medical professionals (and be taken seriously). I’ll see you online, at the thyroid summit on June 2nd, sign up today.

Columbia has two practices left this week before taking the field at Memorial Stadium at 6 p.m. on Friday for the annual Purple & Gold game. After that, the Tigers will round out the spring with a game against Fort White High, another Columbia County football team. That game will take place at 7 p.m. on May 24 in Lake City. Despite such a short evaluation period, Allen said that some of the returning players have already estab-lished themselves as lead-ers for next year’s team. The biggest reason that leaders have emerged — competition. “We’ve been competing every day, and that’s the one thing that has been consistent,” Allen said. “The main guys have come out and established them-selves. Lonnie Underwood, Roger Cray, Zedrick Woods have all done a good job.” But it’s not just the starters from last year’s team that have been in leader-ship roles. Kamario Bell is a young player entering his second season with the team that Allen said has made strides in his second spring. “He’s been a pleasant presence for us,” Allen said. And Bell is joined by a host of other players that are looking to make an impact. “Caleb Carswell has had a good spring and estab-lished himself as the go-to guy in the passing game,” Allen said. “Latrell Williams is a guy that we’re expect-ing to give us some help as well. Lucas Bradley is playing well at fullback and our offense will go as our fullback goes. Jessie Nolan returned to the program and he’s been solid.” Of course, the Purple & Gold will serve as another evaluation point for CHS.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I love cooking for my wife and friends. There are few things I find more pleas ing than to put out a nice spread of food and watch people enjoy. I’m always on the lookout for more cook books, and you hold the key to my next big party. I was reading through your archives and have seen many people asking about your cookbooklets. I’d love to get them. Can you print the ordering information again, so I can be sure I’m sending the right amount to the right place? Thanks! — MAN IN THE KITCHEN IN NORTH LITTLE ROCK DEAR MAN IN THE KITCHEN: I’m glad to oblige. I have been a com pulsive cookbook collector for many years, so I can relate. (I’m sure you will be pleased when you see that my cookbooklets, while wide-ranging in con tent, take up little space on your bookshelf.) Your idea of throwing a “Dear Abby Dinner Party” is a good one, and I have been told the recipes pro vide a fun, traditional eat ing adventure. All of them are simple, easy-to-read and delicious. One reader described creating place cards for her guests decorated with hearts and flowers. The centerpiece was a “bouquet” of envelopes addressed to me. Another reader said she copied questions from my column, printed them out and, as a party game, asked her guests to supply the answers. (She said that after a few glasses of wine, some of the responses were hilar ious, but couldn’t be printed in a family newspaper.) My cookbooklet set contains more than 100 tasty recipes, ranging from soups to salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts, that can be used when families get together to cel ebrate holidays and other special occasions. My mother used many of them when she hosted parties, as have I. To order, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. You will find tips on entertaining at the beginning of the first book let. Anyone who hasn’t entertained before should be sure to read them. By following these sug gestions, even the most nervous, first-time host can be confident. I know you will enjoy the recipes as much as we have and serve them with pride. DEAR ABBY: After breakfast on Saturdays, my husband and I settle in, listen to music and read the newspaper. It’s our Saturday morning ritual. As part of it, when I get to your column, I read it out loud to my husband. We enjoy the letters and your advice. When I fin ish, my husband almost invariably says, “You know, those letters are made up.” Abby, I think they are real, albeit edited, but genuine. He thinks they’re fake. Who’s right? — TRUE BELIEVER IN MICHIGAN DEAR TRUE BELIEVER: You are. I could never make up any thing as interesting as the mail that arrives from my readers day after day. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Moderation will be required to avoid mishaps. You can say “no” once in a while and still maintain your status quo. Don’t let an argument drive a wedge between you and someone you love. Compromise more and criticize less. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show everyone what you have to offer. Dependability and determi nation are your strengths and can carry you to and beyond your destination. Explore new possibilities and stabilize important partnerships. Deal with red tape concisely and avoid being red-flagged. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Assisting people is fine, but do so for the right reason. Having motives behind your do-good atti tude will backfire if you aren’t honest and upfront about what you are hoping to get in return. Love is in the stars. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Live a little. Participate in networking events or social activities. You’ll discover someone you have a lot in common with and share some inter esting ideas and plans that will help you reach your personal or professional objectives. Strive for equal ity. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Engage in conversations that will bring you knowl edge or information that can help you make a good decision and an appropri ate move. Don’t let hype or trends cost you or lead you into an excessive situation. Channel your energy into romance. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Short trips, attending an exhibit or networking with colleagues will all lead to valuable information and the courage to make some positive changes to the way you live. Someone respected in your com munity will offer expert advice. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t succumb to demands or forceful action at home or at work. Stand up for your beliefs, but be prepared to make changes as a result of your actions. Weed out what isn’t work ing in your life and make your move. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Check out different lifestyles, beliefs and orga nizations. Expanding your interests will bring you in touch with someone you click with creatively. Do something unusual to your home that will add to your pleasure and attract unusu al visitors. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have to dig deep if you want to get all the information you need to make a good deci sion. Take the initiative and make domestic chang es that will improve your life and your relationships, but don’t overspend. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Offer a helping hand or well-thought-out suggestion, but step back if someone wants you to pay for or do the work on his or her behalf. Strive for equality in all your deal ings. Don’t take on a losing battle. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen care fully and make decisions based on the information you discover. A money deal looks good and a gift, loan or offering is heading in your direction. Love is highlighted and a promise can be made, along with a positive domestic change. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look over documents and important personal papers. Present your plans to someone who is in a posi tion to help you. A new ven ture looks promising and can open the door to some fascinating connections. Expand your outlook and your interests. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last A Dear Abby dinner party blends good food and fun Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.
