The nurse, 24-year-old Marilee Boozer, faces charges of petit theft and possession of a controlled substance. According to arrest reports, she admitted stealing students medications since October. The report said she told deputies she consumed them herself, sometimes at work. Bonanno says her sons pills were among those stolen and the effect on his behavior was disastrous. The boy has a heart condition as well, she said, and the results could have been Pinemount nurse substituted another medication after stealing his, Heather Bonanno asserts. State, county jobless rates fall in April County down 0.6 percent, but labor force down also.By ROBERT BRIDGESrbridges@lakecityreporter.comThe assistant principal at Pinemount Elementary School received a five-day suspension without pay for failing to report an 8-year-old students allegations of sexual abuse at home, district officials said Friday. Marilyn Gassett will serve the penalty at a time to be determined by the district, according to a disciplinary letter from Supt. Terry Huddleston. Gassett learned of the students claims she had been assaulted by her stepfather from a Pinemount paraprofessional. The paraprofessional had been told by a co-worker Assistant principal suspended five days Pinemount Elementarys Gassett penalized for failing to report sex abuse claims.From staff and wire reportsTALLAHASSEE Florida gained 34,000 jobs last month, which helped bring the states unemployment rate back down after it ticked up in March. The states overall unemployment rate for April was 6.2 percent, a slight decrease. The jobless rate in Columbia County fell as well, from 6.2 percent in March to 5.6 percent in April. However, thats mostly because of a drop in the local labor force, which fell from 31,958 to 31,463. Two hundred and twenty five fewer people were unemployed in April than in March, but the number with jobs also went down, from 29,980 in March to 29,710 in April. A decommissioned U.S. Navy A-7E Corsair II jet is seen displayed in a field off Interstate 75 on Friday. FIGHTER JETS FATE IS UP IN THE AIRThe plane will either be sold, sent back to museum, or remain in place, county says.Every option is openCounty manager Dale Williams said since Sessions passed away in October 2013 and his son Austin Sessions inherited the property, the county has had trouble accessing the plane, partly because of a locked gate, and thats why its considering getting rid of it. The county needs access to the land to clean and paint the plane, among other things, Williams said. He said the countys options are to send the plane back to the museum, move it or keep it where it is. Right now, every option is open, he said. The jet was delivered at no cost to the county, but the county would have to pay transportation costs to return it, Williams said. At Thursdays Columbia County Commission meeting, commissioners authorized the county to contact the U.S. Department of Defense to see how much it would cost to return the plane.No legal access to landAlthough there was a chain around the gate with locks on it, the Lake City Reporter visited the site Friday and found the lock holding the chain was unlocked and that the gate could be opened. The gate is accessed via Southwest Monitor Glenn. The fate of a Vietnam War-era Navy fighter jet that sits on the northbound side of Interstate 75 about two miles south of Lake City is up in the air. The plane, an A-7E Corsair II, was acquired by the county on loan from the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola in 1988 as a way to promote the Lake City Air Show, and its been kept on private property since striking a deal with then-landowner Ray Sessions. However, the air show has ended, Sessions has died, and issues with access to the land have arisen.By SARAH LOFTUS | JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter PLANE continued on 6A GASSETT continued on 6A PINEMOUNT continued on 7A BonannoBy CANDICE CHOIAP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK Darden is setting Red Lobster adrift, but betting that it can still turn around Olive Gardens fortunes. The company, which is based in Orlando, said Friday that it would sell its seafood chain and the accompanying real estate to investment firm Golden Gate Capital in a $2.1 billion cash deal. The announcement came despite objections from some shareholders to the plan to separate Red Lobster, which was announced late last year. Both Olive Garden and Red Lobster have been losing customers in recent years, even as they changed their menus and marketing campaigns to win back business. Part of the problem is the growing popularity of places like Chipotle and Panera, where customers feel they can get the same quality of food without paying as much or waiting for table service. But Darden CEO Clarence Otis has drawn a distinction between Red Lobster and Olive Garden, both of which have restaurants in Lake City.Darden will sell Red Lobster, hang onto Olive GardenBy SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comJared Allison wasnt your typical bookworm. Yes, he loved to read and read a lot. He was reading Intellectuals in Society before he passed, his dad, Carl Allison, said. He would read things no one else would think about reading, he said. But he had so many other passions. He loved to coach and mentor kids and was a great listener, his mother, Joan Allison, said. He always had time to spend with people, she said. He could talk to anybody. Jared Allison, 31, was killed Friday night shortly after 9 p.m. in Gainesville after being hit by a truck on State Road 222, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Some reports say he was jogging when he was hit. The driver, James Todd Brown, 51, Gainesville, had not been drinking, FHP said. He held numerous swimming records when he went to Columbia High School, and his dad thinks he may hold one still, even though he graduated in 2001. But his involvement with the Columbia High School swim team didnt end there.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 TAMPA A Tampa pastor was found dead of an apparent suicide amid an investigation he had embezzled about $200,000 from his church, authorities said. The Tampa Police Department said the Rev. Vladimir Dziadek, 56, was discovered by a maintenance worker Monday morning at the bottom of a staircase at the offices of St. Joseph Catholic Church. He had apparently hanged himself with a belt tied to a banister. A report from the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner noted police said Dziadek was depressed after parishioners discovered the alleged embezzlement to fuel a gambling habit. The report said the priest had been removed from administrative duties at the church and was set to appear at a hearing Monday with members. Frank Murphy, a spokesman for the Diocese of St. Petersburg, said the diocesan finance office was nearing the end of its investigation. Murphy said Dziadek was “very well-received” at St. Joseph but had a history of depression. Residents rally for taken Nigerian girls MIAMI GARDENS — A Florida congresswoman is among those rallying for action to free nearly 300 abducted Nigerian schoolgirls. Rep. Frederica Wilson was due to address a demonstration Saturday in Miami Gardens. She says she’s adding her voice “to the chorus heard around the world” to “bring back our girls.” Leaders from five African nations are gathering in Paris for a summit with officials from the U.S., France and Britain in hopes of coordi nating a strategy against Boko Haram (BOH’-koh hah-RAHM’), the Islamic extremist group that abducted the girls. SunRail averages 10K riders in 1st 2 weeks ORLANDO — Officials for cen tral Florida’s new commuter train say that more than 100,000 riders have used the service during its ini tial two weeks. SunRail spokesman Steve Olson announced Friday that officials esti mate the train has had 117,740 pas sengers board in the 11 days it has run between May 1 and May 15. It does not run on the weekends. Service on the first 32-mile phase of $1.2 billion commuter train was offered free for two weeks to help users get acclimated to the train and its schedule. A handful of tweaks have been made over that time to lessen some midday delays and parking issues. Paying service is set to begin Monday. The project is aimed at easing traffic on Interstate 4.

Billboard Awards can use Jackson hologram LAS VEGAS — A federal judge ruled Friday that the Billboard Music Awards can use a hologram of deceased pop icon Michael Jackson at this week end’s show, rejecting efforts from tech companies seeking to block the digital performance. Judge Kent Dawson said there wasn’t enough evidence to show the planned 3-D image would violate patents held by Hologram USA Inc. and Musion Das Hologram Ltd. The companies own rights to tech nology known for digitally resurrecting deceased rapper Tupac Shakur at the 2012 Coachella music festival. “The court’s decision is not surpris ing,” attorney Howard Weitzman, who represented Jackson’s estate and dick clark productions, wrote in an email. “The request to stop this extraordinary Michael Jackson event was ludicrous.”‘Halo’ TV series, ‘Halo 5’ game launching in 2015 LOS ANGELES — Master Chief is returning to the battlefield next year. Microsoft announced plans Friday to release the video game sequel “Halo 5: Guardians” for the Xbox One and a “Halo” television series to be produced by Steven Spielberg in fall 2015. The next entry in the sci-fi shooter series starring super-soldier Master Chief will run at 60 frames per second on a new engine created by “Halo” developer 343 Studios. “Halo 5” will mark the first time a “Halo” game has run at that frame rate, which provides a more realistic sense of motion on screen and increases accuracy for players. “’Halo 5: Guardians’ is obviously a big deal for us,” said Frank O’Connor, franchise development director at 343. “It’s the next chapter in the Master Chief saga. It’s also a big deal for us because of the transition to the Xbox One platform. All of the ‘Halo’ games — more or less — have added some thing to the Xbox ecosystem.” Bonnie Ross, general manager at 343 Studios, noted that additional plans this year for the “Halo” franchise would be announced June 9 at Microsoft’s presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the largest annual gathering of the gaming industry. Florence official: West, Kardashian to wed ROME — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will wed and host a recep tion at Florence’s imposing 16th-centu ry Belvedere Fort on May 24, a spokes woman at the Florence mayor’s office said Friday. The couple rented the fort, locat ed next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens, for 300,000 euros ($410,000) and a Protestant minister will preside over the ceremony, spokeswoman Elisa Di Lupo told The Associated Press in a phone interview. Belvedere Fort was built in 1590, believed using plans by Don Giovanni de’ Medici. Located near the Arno River, it offers a panoramic view of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills. The 36-year-old rapper proposed to the reality star on her 33rd birth day in October 2013, renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion. This is the first marriage for West, who was previously engaged to design er Alexis Phifer. It’s the third trip down the aisle for Kardashian. She was wed to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2003, and spent 72 days married to professional basketball play er Kris Humphries in 2011 after tying the knot in a lavish ceremony broad cast as a two-part TV special. The couple was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine’s April issue, with Kardashian wearing a wed ding-style dress.

The driver faces charges of vehicular homicide and DUI. Sherriol Denise Ingraham, 44, Lake City, was pulled from the vehicle about 10 minutes after it became complete ly submerged, FHP said. She died the follow ing day at UF Health Shands in Gainesville. The driver, Waymon Earl Butts Jr., 34, Lake City, was booked into the county jail on Friday. Butts was headed east on NW Nash Road just east of Delray Circle at 10:45 p.m. Thursday when his 2005 Toyota sedan encountered standing water on the roadway, according to FHP. The car traveled off the south side of the road “into a large flooded area” where it over turned and sank, FHP said. That portion of Nash Road had been closed due to flooding, and FHP spokesperson Tracy Hisler-Pace said Butts’ vehicle struck at least one warning sign. Ingraham was pulled from the submerged car by Columbia County sheriff’s deputies and fire rescue workers. She died at 7:47 a.m. Friday, FHP said. Butts was ordered held with out bail, jail records show. Woman dies in submerged car Butts By TONY Columbia County officials are considering purchasing four residential properties to alleviate flooding problems through the Clay Hole Creek Stormwater Mitigation Project. During Thursday’s county commission meeting, commis sioners unanimously adopted a proposal on the consent agen da to seek new appraisals on the properties. Dale Williams, county man ager, said the current Clay Hole Creek Stormwater Mitigation project is not the project orig inally proposed because that project exceeded the finan cial abilities of the county and the Suwannee River Water Management District. He said the county found the best solution would be to expand the Polk Street reten tion pond. “By expanding it, it would create additional capacity with the hope that creating more capacity, some of the other properties in the general area would benefit by having diminished flood exposure,” Williams said. The residential properties the county plans to purchase are on the north and west sides of the retention pond. County officials authorized staff to get updated apprais als for the properties they are considering purchasing for the retention pond expansion. “Florida law says if we have to make an offer, the appraisal can’t be more than six months old,” Williams said, estimating the project was last visited 12 -18 months ago. Williams said the county is bound by its new stormwater mitigation property acquisi tion purchase guidelines. The guidelines dictate rules the county follows to acquire prop erty for specific purposes. “There will be no condem nation in this, none of that is permitted. This is strictly vol untary,” he said. “You’ve got to have a willing seller as well as a willing buyer. The coun ty is not in the business of buying homes just because a home flooded. This basically is to create a larger basin to hopefully benefit a number of residences.” BOCC considers buying 4 Clay Hole properties Purchase would expand Stormwater Mitigation Project.

D eMatha High School, in the Washington suburb of Hyattsville, Md., is nationally known for its successful sports teams and, as an all-male school, its exem-plary young men. Everybody at DeMatha knows about the Looney brothers – Brendan, Steve and Billy. Tough competitors on the field. First-class nice guys. And everybody in the DeMatha family knows about the sacrifice Brendan made for his country. As we prepare for yet another Memorial Day with young men and women still dying far away in war or recovering from grievous wounds, it’s worth thinking about Brendan Looney and his best friend Travis Manion, who epitomize love of country and selfless devotion to comrades. They met as roommates at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and trained for war together. For years they were inseparable. U.S. Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion died fighting in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2007. U.S. Navy Lt. (SEAL) Brendan Looney died three years later in a helicopter crash in Zabul Province in Afghanistan. Today they are buried side by side at Arlington National Cemetery in Section 60. Identical headstones mark the resting places of dozens of their fallen comrades all around them. Travis’ father, Tom Manion, a retired Marine colonel, and Tom Sileo, a journalist, have written a gripping account of the remarkable friendship of these two heroes and their deaths. “Brothers Forever” is a grim tale of today’s ugly brand of warfare but it also pays homage to a courageous generation of men and women who went to a war that too few Americans know much about. Two years after Brendan’s death, his widow, Amy, 31, challenged Americans to perform 10 random acts of kindness in honor of their fallen heroes in Afghanistan and Iraq. Her husband, who did many acts of kindness for people he met in Iraq and Afghanistan, proved, she said, that it is possible to be a war-rior for freedom and an ambassador of kindness at the same time. In 2011 President Obama commemorated Memorial Day by noting “the friendship between First Lieutenant Travis Manion and Lieutenant Brendan Looney reflects the meaning of Memorial Day: brotherhood, sacrifice, love of country. And it is my fervent prayer that we may honor the memory of the fallen by living out those ideals every day of our lives, in the military and beyond.” This month Obama gave the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor, to another brave soldier, Sgt. Kyle J. White. A radiotelephone operator, he fought for hours while wounded against intense Taliban fire in Afghanistan trying to save the lives of fellow sol-diers in 2007. This Memorial Day we must remember the thousands of Americans who returned from Iraq and Afghanistan seriously wounded. There is currently an investigation into whether medical care has been criminally delayed for veterans cared for by clinics and hospitals run by the Department of Veterans Affairs. We don’t know the truth yet – VA hospitals have had a gener-ally good reputation. If delays have been routine, such a travesty must be ended immediately. Memorial Day should be one of our most important, most vigor-ously celebrated holidays. It is a day of acknowledging our indebtedness to vital young men and women who fought, were injured or died for this nation just as they began to know the promise of the good that life can hold. We must honor the courage in every generation and salute the good such as Travis Manion and Brendan Looney.

BY EMAIL: W hen cops can help themselves to cash, cars, boats and houses of citizens who have never been charged with a crime, the system is badly broken. Minnesota has become one of the handful of states to do something to fix it. The sight of a lawman in the rear-view mirror can be a reassuring sight, but good feeling sometimes becomes one of dread. The flashing blue and red lights often are a warning of a different kind of high-way robbery. Under the surreal doctrine of civil forfeiture, law enforcement agents can set aside constitutional pro-tections and simply seize property under the assertion that the property is probably related to some kind of criminal activity. This is often an irresistible tempta-tion, and the state gets away with it by laying charges against inanimate objects, which have no rights, instead of people, who do. This reverses the presump-tion of innocence, allowing money, cars, and even the occasional motel to become the constable’s property without a judge finding the actual owner guilty of any-thing. It’s up to the owner to prove the cops wrong, and if there’s any doubt, the government wins. The system is rigged to favor those who are corrupt. The federal government is in on the game, too. When items are seized under the federal authority, the federales get to keep 20 percent with the local cops getting the rest. In many states, the local share flows directly into the agency’s budget, creating a powerful and perverse profit motive. Each seizure holds the promise of upgraded squad cars and other benefits for the officers. The reassuring slogan of “serve and protect” has been replaced by “stop and collect.” Minnesota’s civil forfeiture program was once one of the most abusive. According to a report by the Institute for Justice, the state’s forfeiture revenue grew 75 percent between 2003 and 2010, as law enforcement helped itself to $30 million in more or less legal loot. The state’s Metro Gang Strike Force drew headlines for the brutality of its raids. The state auditor counted 13 seized cars that went “missing” — along with thousands in cash — as dirty cops helped them-selves to the goods. The good times came to an end when a court ordered $840,000 in seized property returned to victims. The Minnesota legislature took the point, too, and under a new state law, effective in August, civil forfei-ture can now occur only after conviction for a crime. Wyoming is considering a similar reform, with one proposal raising the bar by requiring “clear and con-vincing evidence” to justify seizure. These developments are encouraging, and overdue, as civil forfeiture is a dangerous and evil doctrine. Reform is needed both at the state and federal level so that police officers do their jobs as public servants, not as tax collectors for the welfare state.Ending civil assetforfeiture abuse Q Washington Times A salute to America’s best Step up, fix the problems and restore confidence T he problems at Pinemount Elementary School in Lake City continue to raise ques-tions in our community and most certainly there will be other complaints surface in the days ahead. Those complaints may not prove to be anything, but more grumbling is coming. This is the way these scenarios always unfold. Human nature’s easy way is to pile on and go with the crowd. Make no mistake, if there are additional documented incidents, we will do our best to accurately report on these. Also realize that during the past week, the rumor mill connected to the Columbia County School District was churn-ing out false innuendo at a ratio of about 20 to 1. We check them all. We report on what can be substanti-ated with facts. There have been some monumental mistakes surrounding the incidents at Pinemount. School district officials have acknowledged these and issued punishments to administrators and staff members there. The district was slow to report the findings of their internal investigation and the public was left wondering, churning that rumor mill. Hopefully, everyone has learned a lesson on how to quickly and properly communicate, especially when the well-being of children, their safety and their educational environment is at stake. Everyone needs to take a deep breath. There are dozens of great teachers and solid employees at Pinemount Elementary School who do their jobs each day with efficiency. They are a credit to their profession. The school is known for producing high standardized test grades and top-notch students who leave elementary school prepared for the next step in their educational process. A few serious miscues have placed the district’s newest school’s reputation in question and district officials must move swiftly to regain the public confidence that there is proper leadership coming from the school board office. I believe in the Columbia County School District. I am invested in the Columbia County School District. The people leading our school district have their heart in the right place, but this is not about the heart. This is a tough spot that requires the fortitude to make changes. This is not a situation that can wait for a solution some-time during the summer. Parents and taxpayers need to see positive movement before the end of this school year. Our school district is one of the best compared to others our size in the state. Elementary schools have long been the bedrock for success here. Policies, procedures and personnel need to be evaluated. Improvements for the future need to be implemented. There are immediate challenges facing school district leadership. It’s time to get the job done. Todd Q Todd Wilson is publisher of the Lake City Reporter.

Q Submit your items to Emily Lawson at Mobility Fair is Tuesday From staff reports River flooding may have impacted private wells and made residents’ water unsafe, according to a news release from the county health department. “If your well casing has been submerged by flood water, either use bottled water, or boil or disinfect all the water you use for drinking, making bever ages, cooking, brushing your teeth, washing dishes, and washing areas of the skin that have been cut or injured,” the release said. Common unscented household bleach (4 to 6 percent) can be used effec tively as a chlorine disinfec tant, the release said. Add eight drops (about 1/8 tea spoon) of unscented house hold bleach per gallon of water, then let stand for 30 minutes, repeating the pro cedure if the water is still cloudy. An alternative dis infecting method involves bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute. Residents whose wells have been flooded can call the county for information on how to sample their water free of charge and where to bring the sample for bacteriological testing. If the test reveals bacteria, the well and water system need to be disinfected. It is important to disin fect both well and plumb ing water with unscent ed household bleach to ensure that all infectious agents are destroyed, according to the release. “If you have water treat ment devices, remove all membranes, cartridges, and filters and replace them after the chlorination process is completed,” the release said. “The amount of chlorine determines the length of time you allow the bleach to remain in your system.” For more information, go to or florid MEGAN REEVES/ Lake City ReporterJamie Harold’s property, located on Landress Terrace, experi enced flooding Thursday. Her yard was one of many affected by the 3-4 inches of rain Columbia County received last week. Health Department: Boil water if well submergedBoil water used for: Drinking Making beverages Cooking Brushing teeth Washing dishes Washing areas of the skin that have been cut or injured There were an estimated 599,000 people out of work in the state. Florida’s unem ployment rate is just below the national unemployment rate. Economists have said as people begin to look for work again it could make it harder for the state’s unemployment rate to have any more large drops like it has had in the last two years. State economists have said a key reason for drops in the unemploy ment rate in 2012 and 2013 was that people left the labor force or had delayed their job search. But that is starting to change. The latest economic over view published by the Office of Economic and Demographic Research this week said that the labor participation rate has been increasing since last December. “It appears that improv ing job prospects are encouraging people to rejoin the labor force,” the report said. “In this case, the slight uptick in the unemployment rate would be a strong indicator of an improving economy.” Gov. Rick Scott, who has been caught up in a tough re-election fight, has made job creation the main theme of his time as governor. He touted the numbers on Friday as more proof that his poli cies have helped with the state’s economic recovery.

High School swim team. His mom said he loved to read about his students’ success in the paper and would follow their jour neys to the state meets that way. “He probably should’ve been a teacher,” his dad said. But Jared Allison loved being a pharmacist, said lifelong friend Chase Moses. After graduating from high school in 2001, Jared Allison went to UF for col lege and then pharmacy school. “He did really enjoy it and was happy to be doing it,” Moses said. “Once he got out of school, he was really excited to be a phar macist.” But pharmacy school wasn’t always part of Jared Allison’s plan. When he first started college at UF, he majored in business, but at the beginning of his sec ond year, he called his dad to tell him he switched his major and wanted to be a pharma cist. Carl Allison told him he was thrilled. “Jared said, ‘Really? I always thought you didn’t want me to be a pharma cist.’ I told him, ‘No, I just didn’t want you to feel like you had to be a pharma cist,’” his dad said. He was getting ready to take over Baya Pharmacy. Getting ready to move back to Lake City and build a house on property that used to belong to his great-grandmother, his father said. “It’s unbelievable that he would be taken away at this point in his life,” Carl Allison said. He is survived by his parents, younger sister, Michele Allison, grand parents, Betty and John Norris and grandmother Jean Floyd. He was amicably divorced and shared cus tody of Chloe, their dog, with his ex-wife. Since Jared Allison was a child, he took it on himself to protect his sister, nine years his junior. He always stood up for her if anyone ever picked on her, Carl Allison said. His parents said anoth er part of his childhood that sticks out to them is a project he did in 4th grade. The assignment was to interview a relative and write a report on it. Jared Allison inter viewed his grandmother and wrote about what it was like for her to live right here in Lake City in the ‘30s and ‘40s. Her husband was a preach er, so they didn’t have much money, Carl Allison explained. One detail in Jared Allison’s report was that his grandmother used to make clothes out of old flour sacks, Carl Allison said. “It was excellent,” his mom said. “I still have it.” When he wasn’t read ing, studying or standing up for his sister, he was swimming or doing some thing outdoors. Moses, who’s known Jared Allison since they were born, said he still has the boat the boys learned to water ski with. He remembers when they used to go tubing on Lake Jeffery. “When we were little, grow ing up, we were always doing something outdoors,” Moses said. He said their dads used to take them on fishing and hunting trips. Moses said on one dove-hunting trip to Kentucky when they were freshmen in high school, they acci dentally drove head first into a hay bale on a John Deere Gator. “But you know, when you’re kids, you bounce off and laugh it off,” Moses recalled, laughing. Moses and Jared Allison hadn’t seen or talked to each other a lot lately, but Moses said they could go years and pick up right where they left off. “He was a great friend,” Moses said, through tears. “He is one of the people when you look back on your childhood, you always remember.” Carl Allison said that every parent thinks his child is wonderful, and Jared Allison really was. “He was brilliant and sensitive,” his mom said. Funeral arrangements were incomplete at press time. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) To make your change, join our free educational seminar on May 21, 2014, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital.

UF HEALTHWEIGHT LOSS SURGERY CENTER who learned it from two students the victim confid ed in, according to district documents and a sheriff’s arrest report of the girl’s alleged abuser. Gassett consulted Pinemount principal Donna McAdams, who told her to arrange a par ent conference, reports said. The girl’s mother and grandmother told Gassett they did not believe she had been abused and Pinemount officials did not report the matter to the state Department of Children and Families, as required by law. The moth er later took the girl to a physician, who notified authorities abuse was in fact suspected. McAdams received a 7-day suspension without pay for her role in the inci dent and four other school workers received letters in their files notifying them of their failure to follow state-mandated proce dures. A policy handbook at Pinemount instructed employees to report allega tions of abuse to their supe riors at the school, but did not tell them to inform state authorities as required by law. Gassett, former princi pal at Niblack Elementary, was demoted and moved to Pinemount in August 2013. The district did not reveal the reasons for the demotion. In the dis ciplinary letter released Friday, Huddleston said Gassett was on annual con tract and that he had “not made a final determination concerning your contract status going forward.” Huddleston said Friday he would pursue the matter to its conclusion. Of the district’s 1,200plus employees, “the vast majority are outstanding,” he said. “The finest in Florida.” But he said some may not be fully committed. “There is no on-thefence,” he said. “This is either-or. I will not tolerate individuals who do not have the best interests of the stu dents of this district in their hearts.” The disciplinary letter, dated May 1, was pre sented to Gassett 10 days before it was made public May 16, district officials said. Officials claimed a statutory exemption allowed them to withhold release of the document for that long. However, attorneys for the Florida Press Association and the First Amendment Foundation told the Lake City Reporter the statutory exemption did not apply in this case, and said the district had a legal obligation to release the letter upon receipt by Gassett. GASSETTContinued From 1A But Williams said it doesn’t mat ter. The issue is that the county doesn’t currently have legal access to the land, he said. When Ray Sessions owned it, someone from the county would call him before coming and Sessions would open the gate, Williams said. But the county hasn’t been able to do that with his son, the current property owner. Williams said there was never a formal agreement with Ray Sessions concerning access. “It’s just things were probably done a little different then,” Williams said. Access problems nothing new But county parks and recreation director Clint Pittman, who’s in charge of maintaining the plane, said it’s not a legal issue. The problem is the gate on the property is some times closed, and that’s nothing new, he said. “There have always been issues with access, even when (Ray Sessions) was still living,” he said. It’s not necessarily the Sessions family’s fault, Pittman said. Other people use the property and lock the gate. Sometimes, livestock is kept in the pasture where the plane sits, Pittman said. He said he thinks the county should return the plane because it’s not being used for its original pur pose — to promote the air show, and costs a lot to maintain. Pittman said he doesn’t know exactly how much maintenance costs because it is not broken out as a separate item in the budget. Pittman said in addition to prob lems accessing the land the plane is kept on, the sign the county is required by the federal govern ment to display has been stolen three times in roughly the last two years. The sign has to say that the airplane is on loan from the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola. The sign was most recently stolen was after Ray Sessions passed away. Each time, the county has to get a new sign made, Pittman said. The signs are probably sold as scrap metal, he said. “To me, it’s a bigger disgrace to see it sit out there and grow green mold and not have the proper sign, then for it to be returned,” Pittman said. Austin Sessions said the gate doesn’t have a lock and that the county can access the property when it wants to. He said he lives on the property and has never once seen someone from the county try to access the plane. Austin Sessions also said no one else uses the property. “For (the coun ty) to pull this is ridiculous,” he said. “I would have (the land) mowed and bring water if they had told me when they were out there.” According to Austin Sessions, for the past six to seven years, the Sessions family has been maintaining the jet, including paint ing and cleaning it, he said. But Pittman said the county has been doing that work.No longer intended purpose Williams said he has no strong personal opinions on the issue, but said if the county does keep the plane, it has to ensure access and make it clear through a sign that the airplane’s purpose is no lon ger to market the air show but to honor war veterans. Something like “Columbia County salutes its veter ans,” he said. Retired Circuit Judge Vernon Douglas, who was a part of the Lake City Air Show when the coun ty got the plane, said the jet is a landmark and thinks it helps the community. “I thought it did more than pro mote the air show,” he said. It acts as a symbol for the area, Douglas said. People can say they’re from Lake City — the town with a jet on the side of I-75. About the plane The A-7E Corsair II jet was the final plane of the A7 series and was first flown in 1965 by the U.S Navy in the Vietnam War. Later, the U.S. Air Force also used the plane. The fighter jet ceased pro duction in 1984 and was retired in 1991. According to the county’s loan agreement with the National Naval Aviation Museum, Columbia County’s jet is valued at $100,000. The history of the plane on dis play here is unclear.

He even won the BUG (Bringing Up Grades) award after getting on his medicine. Then suddenly he didnt want to even go to school. The five-year-olds behavior changed rapidly, and after a sudden, extreme outburst she asked him if he had been taking his medicine at school. He said, I take a white pill, Mommy, Bonanno said. And I said, No you dont. He said I do, too. Bonanno knew that wasnt right. Im a pharmacy tech. I am state-certified and Im working on my national certification, she said. I study pills all day long, what they look like, their color, shape. I know what he should be taking and its not white. Bonanno said her son described the pill Boozer was giving him as a white tablet. His ADHD medication is a yellow-tan oval pill. Hes a 5-year-old kid, hes trusting, she said. Since March her son has been on a double dose of Concerta, taking 27 mg in the morning and 18 mg in the afternoon. At school the medication must be kept and administered by the school nurse, according to Florida law. Bonanno said she recently had to leave work to bring her son medication because Boozer told her she dropped some of his pills down the sink. Bonanno requested the permission forms that record each time she has brought in medication for her son and said the third form, along with a form for her sons inhaler, was missing.Heart conditionAlong with ADHD, Bonannos son has an extra valve in the upper quadrant of his heart. The valves purpose is to give extra blood flow to the fetus during pregnancy, but usually closes within five days after birth. Her son underwent Patent Ductus Arteriosus closure surgery a few months ago, but unauthorized changes in medication still could pose a problem. Depending on the type of pills he was given by Boozer, her son could relapse or experience serious heart complications, she said. Bonanno has been to her sons primary care physician as well as doctors in Gainesville to make sure he is stable. He received an EKG, which came back normal, she said. Bonanno said doctors havent yet narrowed down what medication her son received, possibly because any medicine from the same class as Concerta will not show up on tests. Her son also received a urinalysis and a swab test for which they are still awaiting results. Bonanno said she is looking into a hair follicle test, which can show results up to 90 days after ingestion of a drug.A violation of trustAlthough her son is now back on his regular medication and doing well, Bonanno said he still doesnt feel safe at Pinemount. He didnt even want to go to school because hes afraid of something bad they might give him, she said. I am strongly debating whether I am letting my son go there next year. Bonanno also said the school has been unable to fulfill her request for her sons records. Pinemount employees cannot even tell her when the records will be available. You send a child to school being a working parent and you think that theyre gonna be protected, she said. Not only is it a violation of trust, they took advantage of the situation. Bonanno said things could have been handled differently. The school shouldve called the parents personally rather than letting them find out through the media, she said. Bonanno called for better oversight by the district, but Frank Moore, director of Human Resources Management Development, said he is unsure what more the district can do to prevent this sort of situation. He noted that all Columbia County school employees must undergo a Level 2 background check. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the process includes state and national fingerprinting and consideration of disqualifying offenses. Moore said he has considered the idea of psychological profiling, but is unsure that would work. Im having a hard time coming up with the next step, he said. But Im open for suggestions. Supt. Terry Huddleston said he could not comment due to the ongoing investigation. Bonanno said she plans to file a complaint with the Florida Department of Education in Tallahassee over the incident. She said it is possible she may transfer her child to a different school next year. She plans to look into private schools or other public schools where her son feels more comfortable. I would advise any other parent that is going through this situation to speak up, Bonanno said. I dont know what games theyre playing, but we arent going to just sit back. PINEMOUNTContinued From 1ADISTRICT RULES ON STUDENT MEDICATIONS Students cannot carry medications at school. Parents/guardians must complete a new permission form each year for all medications to be administered at school, including OTC medicines. Prescription medicines must be in their original labeled container and delivered to the school by an adult. This must be done each time there are any changes in medication or dosage. OTC medicines require a doctors note stating how the medication is to be taken. An unopened bottle must be delivered to the clinic with a permission form signed by an adult. Otis says Red Lobster in particular is increasingly unable to attract the higher-income customers Darden caters to with its more successful chains, which include Longhorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille and Seasons 52. Red Lobster, which opened in 1968, helped popularize seafood among Americans and today has about 700 locations in the U.S. and Canada. The first restaurant, in Lakeland, boasted a menu including a half a dozen oysters for 65 cents and platters with frog legs and hush puppies for $2.50. As it suffered sales declines more recently, executives blamed a variety of factors, including a refusal among customers to swallow price increases. In 2012, for instance, executives cited a $1 price hike for its Festival of Shrimp special in explaining a quarterly decline in sales. More recently, the company tried to attract a wider array of customers by adding more non-seafood dishes to Red Lobsters menu. The efforts didnt take hold. Darden sees more potential in fixing Olive Garden, which has about 830 locations. The company recently reworked the logo for the Italian chain and has been adding lighter menu items, as well as smaller dishes like crispy risotto bites that it says reflect eating trends. Still, affordability is an ongoing issue across the industry and Darden has been slow to address it. At the height of the downturn, for instance, Applebees introduced a for $20 deal that proved so popular it ended up becoming a menu fixture. Activist investor Barington Capital had challenged Dardens plans to sell Red Lobster, saying the company should separate Olive Garden and Red Lobster as a pair from its other chains, which also include Bahama Breeze, Eddie Vs and Yard House. Barington said in a statement that Dardens decision was unconscionable given the concerns expressed by shareholders. Darden noted that its deal is not subject to shareholder approval. After the transaction costs, Darden said it expects proceeds of $1.6 billion, of which $1 billion will be used to retire debt. The company said it expects the deal to close in its fiscal first quarter of 2015, which is this summer. Golden Gate Capital made a separate $1.5 billion deal to sell Red Lobsters real estate to American Realty Capital Properties, then lease it back. Its other investments include California Pizza Kitchen, Payless ShoeSource and Eddie Bauer. Shares of Darden Restaurants Inc. were down 4 percent at $48.49.

Purple & Gold shootout Defense shines in 48-47 scrimmage By BRANDON FINLEY Nearly 100 points were on the scoreboard as time ran out in the Purple & Gold game without the offense ever reaching the end zone. And thats just the way things go with a bizarre scoring system created before Columbia Highs spring scrimmage. Instead of the usual scor ing system, odds and ends were added to give the defense a chance of coming out on top. Thats what happened as the Purple topped the Gold, 48-47, at Memorial Stadium on Friday. Touchdowns were still given, but the only one came for the defense when Thomas Newsome recov ered a fumble to give the Purple a 19-10 lead in the first half. Besides the usual ways of scoring, there were also turnovers, three-and-outs, sacks and tackles-for-loss to help up the defenses total. The offense could score by picking up long runs and passes. Both were in short demand as the defense held Columbia behind the line of scrimmage more times than not. With the score 31-28 in favor of the Purple team in the fourth quarter, Timothy Dotson tied the contest with a sack that resulted in a punt. Dotson would add another tackle for a loss later in the game. The Purple took the lead for good after Austin Harper forced a sack on the Golds final drive. Head coach Brian Allen noted that although this was a scrimmage marked by the defenses dominance, that it wasnt the case throughout spring practice. Its crazy because all spring this thing has gone back and forth, Allen said. In Thursdays practice, the offense came out and dominated. Tonight, we just forgot everything we know how to do, but thats the way it has been all spring. Were a young group and we made a ton of mistakes on both sides of the ball.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 3B3BSPORTS CHS: Scrimmage gets defensive Continued From Page 1BBut even with the mistakes, Allen said it was a chance for the Tigers to compete and learn. “That’s the thing about the spring, we’re making everything into a competi-tion,” Allen said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s blitz pickup, inside run or whatever, we’re competing.” Allen said that the idea is for the Tigers to learn through repetition, not only on the field, but in the classroom. “While they’re not out there playing, I continu-ally preach mental reps,” Allen said. “The second team offense and defense have to be watching when they’re not in the game. We get everything on film, and we’ll go back and break it down to do visual training as well.” Allen gave credit to the defense, but said that the offense has got to make strides throughout the summer and heading into the fall. “We have to learn fast or we’re going to go out there and get our head beat in,” Allen said. “You always have to give credit to the other side of the ball or another team, but at the same time, it hasn’t been this lopsid-ed during the spring. The difference tonight is the defense wanted it more and went out and executed.” Before the varsity took the field, incoming ninth-grade players scrimmaged and there were three scores. Nathaniel Williams reached the end zone twice on passes from Jamille Bullock and Nathaniel Maxwell scored on a 10-yard pass. Columbia will begin summer workouts on June 9.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-04204BSports utdoors 360 The ‘mystery eyeball’ Photo provided by Rob ChapmanLevi McFatter caught this amber jack while fishing off the Cape. I love to fish. I don’t care if it’s freshwater, saltwater, brackish water, cold water, warm water, dirty water, clean water, blue water, black water, or hot pink water. Side note: If you see pink water, please email me a photo! If there’s a body of water, I’m going to think of a way to fish it. With that being said, I have a confession. If I had to choose between a fresh or saltwater on a given trip, I’m going salt for one reason — you never know! You never know what you’ll hook, you never know what you’ll see, and you never know what you’ll find. The Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean never cease to amaze. Much of the allure to being on the water is not knowing what lies beneath. I spent hundreds of hours on the beach as a kid. I was born in Sarasota, and Siesta Key and Longboat Key were just a few miles west. I was fearless, and would search for spider crabs, sand fleas, coquinas, jellyfish, sand dollars, conch shells and sharks teeth. One afternoon I even found a wallet from a spring-breaker. I remember snorkeling and seeing it under the water; at the time (pre-Facebook and Google), we had to send it back to the owner the old-fashioned way — the United States Postal Service. In just the past month an angler in Florida caught a goblin shark, the second one ever found in the Gulf of Mexico. A few weeks later fishermen in Japan caught a rare megamouth shark near Shizuoka. This was only the 58th time in history that one of these sharks has ever been caught, and it weighed about 1,500 pounds. Perhaps you remember this one. Just over a year ago, a bizarre story took over the front pages of websites and newspapers, while also being broadcast across television and radio airwaves. A man walking on a beach found a mystery eyeball. This wasn’t an ordinary eyeball; it was about the size of a softball. FWC’s Carli Segelson, Public Information Coordinator for the South Region of Florida, was at the meeting when the FWC took possession of the mystery eyeball. She snapped a picture, and when the picture hit the FWC Facebook page it went viral. People everywhere chimed in on what it was. Giant Squid? Mola? Bigfoot? Swordfish? Marlin? The bizarre nature of the story had it voted into the top 10 weirdest stories of 2012 for National Geographic. Soon after the mystery eyeball was turned into the FWC, Dr. Tom Reinert came into its possession. Reinert ruled out many of the possible suspects. Based on the smell, he determined it was “fishy” and not “squiddy.” The color, a deep blue, had determined it was not from a Mola mola, another large fish that lives around Florida waters. Finally, Reinert claimed the eyeball to be from a billfish. “Based on Scientific observation, expert opinion and knowledge of local fisheries we quickly deduced that the eyeball likely came from a swordfish,” Reinert said. Nearly a year after its discovery, genetic testing in St. Petersburg’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute has officially confirmed that the mystery eyeball did indeed belong to a swordfish. How did it come to wash up on a beach? Here’s the theory. Swordfish can be kept in Florida waters. Most likely an angler kept the large swordfish, and during the filleting process decided to remove the eyeball from its boney orbital cup. Shortly after, the eyeball made it’s way to the beach where it was found by human means or forces of nature. The eyeball is still kept in a jar at the FWRI. “It has not aged well … then again, it is an eyeball … in a jar,” states the FWC. In the end, this is one mystery of the sea that has been officially solved.Q Rob Chapman IV is a tournament winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

By BRENDAN FARRINGTON AP Political Writer TALLAHASSEE Republican Gov. Rick Scott is opting to soften his image instead of attack ing Republican-turnedDemocrat Charlie Crist in a campaign ad that features his two-year-old grandson. Scott acknowledges in the ad that he hasnt had a great relationship with the media in the ninth ad since Crist announced he would challenge Scott. As he reads a newspaper at a lawn table, Scott says, You mightve noticed the news media is not always my friend. But they arent the critics I worry about. This guy is. Scott then puts down the newspaper to reveal grand son Auguste sitting on his lap. The images then show Scott playing with and read ing to the boy. I spend every day worrying about what my grandson will think of me. Im focused on the Florida we leave for his generation. That means more jobs and more opportunity. Weve made a good start, but we have a lot more work to do. He then turns to Auguste, whos eating a cracker, and says, What do you say? The boy replies, Lets get to work, grandpa. Scott smiles and says, Thats my line. The ad is a different approach from the attack ads that have so far domi nated the re-election cam paign. Six of Scotts first eight ads have criticized former Crist on issues rang ing from his new support of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul to his decision to run for Senate instead of re-election while serving as governor during the recession. The political committee set up to re-elect Scott is spending $1 million on the ad which will air statewide. The Lets Get to Work com mittee has already spent more than $12 million on television ads with just less than six months to go until the election. By TONY BRITT B en Scott knows well the inner workings of Columbia County government. Scott, who starts as assistant county manager May 28, previously worked as county finance director and as county purchasing director. His role will be to assist and learn from County Manager Dale Williams. I believe Williams idea is for me to learn the whole job of county manager for all the departments, Scott said. Scotts responsibilities will include help ing set he agenda for county commission meetings and countless other duties. I will also be learning how Williams does his job, Scott said. I think the long term goal for the assistant county man ager is to be able to step up and into the county manager position. Scott, who is leaving his post as CFO for Rountree-Moore Automotive Group, said his business philosophy is to encourage respon sible growth with good corporate neighbors. I believe the county needs to search for economic growth, but you also need to make sure what you are bringing in for growth is not harmful to the county, he said. In Columbia County weve got some of the most pristine springs in the world and we dont want to bring something in that might damage that or something else that would damage our environment. We want to make sure we bring in jobs that are good for the county and good for the overall environment. Scott said bringing in good jobs, through responsible companies that are responsible to both their employees and the community, will help Columbia County grow wisely. Scott took over as county finance direc tor in May 2011. He stayed in the post for about two and a half years until recruited by Rountree-Moore, he said. Working for the county, however, is his first love. Scott moved to the area in the 1980s and has seen the area grow during the last three decades. He said he wants that trend to continue during his tenure. I want my children to be able to go to school and come back, live in and work in Columbia County, he said. In order for them to do that, there have to be posi tions for them to fill. Most people would like to see their children be able stay, live and work in the community without hav ing to commute to somewhere else. Williams has served as the county man ager for three decades, and Scott said if he has an opportunity to work in the position for anywhere near that long, he hopes to capitalize on the momentum the county has in economic development and fiscal restraint shown over the years. Any position that Ive ever been in the goal is to leave it better than when you came, he said. In the long run, and I think Williams has helped the county grow, become more professional in most aspects of business, and I just want to keep that momentum going so that when I leave in 20 years, I can say, Hey look heres what weve accomplished and the county is growing and the county is in good fiscal shape. Scott said county officials have done an excellent job in managing the countys budget, noting some counties of similar size have not fared as well during the recent economic downturn. Scott said he believes the experience he earned as the county purchasing director and later as finance director, will benefit him in the new position. Those experiences with working with all the departments from the purchasing side and working with all their budgets, helps me to understand whats going on over there already, he said. The thing that Im looking forward to is learning how Williams comes up with the informa tion about the things we have to prepare for. During a recent budget workshop Williams discussed the need to look at the possibility of building a new commu nications system, funding road projects and other fiscal concerns. Those are important aspects that are coming in the future that are going to be tough to deal with and their all are big dollars what is the funding source going to be for that, Scott asked. Were going have some growth but is the growth going to be enough to cover that or will there have to be some other fund ing source well need to look towards to fund those projects. Im looking forward to getting started, learning from Williams and working with the county commission ers. 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter Week of Sunday, May 18-24, 2014 Section C Columbia, Inc.

By ERICA WERNERAssociated PressWASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s review of the nation’s deportation policies may result in changes to a contentious program that hands over people booked for local crimes to federal immigration authorities. But such steps are unlikely to satisfy advo-cates demanding dramatic action to help millions of people living in the U.S. illegally. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, offering his first public hints at the outcome of the review he’s conduct-ing at Obama’s behest, said Thursday that the so-called Secure Communities pro-gram needs a “fresh start.” He suggested it might be revamped to focus on people who actually have been convicted of crimes, not just those arrested or booked. “In my judgment, Secure Communities should be an efficient way to work with state and local law enforce-ment to reach the removal priorities that we have, those who are convicted of something,” Johnson said on PBS’ “NewsHour.” “The program has become very controver-sial. And I told a group of sheriffs and chiefs that I met with a couple days ago that I thought we needed a fresh start.” The program allows Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to run fingerprints of any-one booked for a local or state crime through a fed-eral database for immigra-tion violations. If there’s a match, ICE can ask local police and sheriffs to detain the person, and then decide whether to deport them. The program, which was started in 2008 under the Bush administration but has been expanded under Obama, has led to complaints that people are being deported for immi-gration violations without being convicted of any crime, or with only minor offenses. Police and sheriff’s officials also complain people are afraid to interact with law enforcement and report crimes because they worry they’ll be deported. States including California and local governments in Oregon and elsewhere have begun refusing to honor all detention requests, some-thing that’s increased in the wake of recent court rul-ings raising questions about the program. Many advocates, who have been holding hunger strikes and rallies to pro-test record-high deporta-tions on Obama’s watch, want Secure Communities eliminated entirely. “We’re skeptical that this is going to be the meaningful change that the community is asking for,” said Kamal Essaheb, an attorney at the National Immigration Law Center. “We don’t want any changes around the edges. This is a program that’s poisoned trust between police and immigrant communities.” More than 150 civil and immigrant rights groups signed a letter to Johnson Friday urging him to end the use of immigrant detentions under Secure Communities. Changes to Secure Communities also would fall far short of the sweep-ing action advocates are pushing to expand a 2-year-old program that’s allowed hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought illegal-ly to the country as youths to stay and work here legal-ly. Johnson said he was still reviewing that possibility. “I would say that we have to be careful not to pre-empt Congress in certain areas,” Johnson said. The Obama administration’s focus on executive action has come with immi-gration legislation stuck in the GOP-led House 11 months after Senate pas-sage of a far-reaching bill that included billions of dol-lars more for border secu-rity, new visa programs and a path to citizenship for many of the 11.5 million people now living illegally in the U.S. Republicans have warned that any executive action by Obama would destroy whatever chance remains to get their cooperation on immigration. Some see a narrow window for the House to act in the next couple of months, ahead of Congress’ August recess and the November mid-term elections. And some Republicans warn that Obama should not be taking steps to relax enforcement. “We’ve witnessed President Obama and administration officials abuse their executive power to systematically dismantle the mechanisms to enforce our immigration laws that Congress has created. But still, the administration would like to go further,” House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said in a statement. “The administration’s refusal to enforce existing laws has created a trust deficit with the American people and is effectively undermining Congress’ work to reform our immigration laws.” 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 18-24, 20142CBIZ/MOTLEY 1985ChryslerFifthAve.Strongmotor&transmission,,automatic,good chrome,norust,antique.$800Call386-438-8557 2007CorvetteSpecialorderedLS7highperformanceengine,6speedAT,velocity yellow,15,480miles, one"oldlady"owner.$38,000CallMs.Wezzie386-365-7117 Name That Company@Y\^XeXjXdf[\jk]Xd`cp^ld Ylj`e\jj`e9iffbcpe`e(0*/%Kf[Xp @dXe`Zfe`Z8d\i`ZXejgfikj$i\cXk\[ ZfdgXepf]]\i`e^gif[lZkjk`\[kfjgfikjXe[Xk_c\k\j8d\i`ZXejcfm\% @`ekif[lZ\[9XqffbX^ld`e(0+.Xe[ cXk\iY\ZXd\befne]fifk_\iZXe[`\j% 9\^`ee`e^`e(0+0#@gXZbX^\[dp^ld n`k_]i\\ZXi[j]\Xkli`e^YXj\YXccgcXp\ij# Xe[jkXik\[XeXeelXcYXj\YXccZXi[j\i`\j`e (0,)%:Xi[j]fi_fZb\p#YXjb\kYXccXe[]ffkYXcc ]fccfn\[`ek_\,'j%@m\Zi\Xk\[Xcfkf]gfg$ Zlckli\$YXj\[Zfcc\Zk`Yc\ZXi[j#kff#jlZ_Xjdp NXZbpGXZbX^\jc`e\%@e)'()@cXleZ_\[jfd\ Xggj]fijgfikj]Xej%N_fXd@6Know the answer?

For starters, it offers a dividend that recently yielded 3.3 percent, and it has paid a dividend every quarter since 1899. General Electric’s operational diversification and ability to adapt to changing times have kept it going for decades. It’s a huge conglomerate, offering turbines, light bulbs, medi-cal imaging equipment, locomotives, home appliances, financial services, jet engines and much more. It’s spinning off its retail finance business and becoming more of an energy company, with oil and gas now its fourth-largest revenue gen-erator. Its industrial businesses are gaining momentum. In late April, General Electric offered about $13 billion for the power business of French industrial giant Alstom. With its whopping order backlog of $245 billion, General Electric has a promising future. It can be hard for such a huge company to be nimble, but it has been thinking outside the box, investing in alternative energies such as wind power, partnering with smaller companies on new technolo-gies, and sponsoring competitions to develop innovative solutions. With a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 14, General Electric’s stock should be a rewarding long-term investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of General Electric.)

Sorry, we can’t provide individual financial advice Borrowing to BuyQWhat’s a leveraged buyout? — B.J., BaltimoreAA leveraged buyout (LBO) is when a company is bought out by another entity (or entities), using a lot of debt. Private-equity investors are typically involved, borrowing gobs of money without using much of their own, and often using the acquiree’s assets as collateral. The acquired company is generally taken private (i.e., it will not trade publicly on the stock market), only to go public again after some changes have been made (such as layoffs, the selling of assets, or dividend increases or decreases). While some LBOs are executed by members of management, others are hostile, executed by outsiders and not welcomed by their targets. Many LBOs don’t end well for the company or its shareholders (there are substantial interest payments due, after all), though the acquirers often do well. ***QWhat’s a golden parachute? — P.H., Alton, Ill.AA golden parachute is when a company gives a hefty payout to a departing CEO or top execu-tive. It’s often required via a clause in the exec’s contract, and can be triggered if the company is sold or the exec is dismissed. Many are quite generous and might even seem reason-able given the performance of the executive and the company. But others are rather outlandish, and sometimes go to folks who haven’t done stellar jobs or been in their positions long. A classic example is Bob Nardelli, who left Home Depot after an unimpressive six years with a reward that topped $200 million. Golden parachutes can involve a large cash payout, a generous sev-erance package, stock options and all kinds of perks, such as contin-ued travel allowances, health care coverage and more. As you might imagine, shareholders don’t love golden parachutes.Got a question for the Fool?

That’s the forecast from auto club AAA, which on Friday said it expects a total of 36.1 million people to travel 50 miles or more. If that estimate holds true, it would be the largest amount of people traveling during the holiday weekend since 2005. Most will drive to their vacation spots, but more people are expected to fly or take a cruise or train this year compared with a year ago, AAA said. The improving job market and a rise in disposable income are fueling the increase in holiday travel plans, AAA found in its annual survey. The desire to get out of the house after a brutally cold winter is another strong incentive to hit the road. “Thoughts of historic cold are still fresh in the minds of Americans in many parts of the country,” said AAA’s Chief Operating Officer Marshall Doney, in a statement. “The winter blues appear to have given Americans the travel bug.” Of the total travelers, 31.8 million are expected to drive, up 1.3 percent from 31.4 million last year. Gas prices are less of a concern for drivers, since they are expect-ed to be lower than last year’s average of $3.63, thanks to rising supplies, AAA said. Airports will be busier, with 2.6 million people expected to fly this year, up 2.4 percent from last year. And 1.7 million people will take a cruise, train or bus, a 6.5 percent jump from a year ago. Travelers can expect to pay more for their getaways. Hotel rooms are likely to cost $3 more a night from last year, at an average of $169 per night, AAA said. The average cost of a round-trip plane ticket is $227, up from $215 a year ago. Car rentals will average $44 a day during the weekend, up 1 percent from a year ago. A 3.4 percent increase in personal income from last year should help cover those additional costs, the auto club said. The AAA forecast represents an 18 percent increase in travelers from 2009, the low point of the recession, when only 30.5 million Americans traveled for Memorial Day. The number has been increasing steadily since 2011. The busiest travel weekend was in 2005, when 44 million people went away. Last year, AAA said more people traveled during the Memorial Day weekend than it projected. It had expected total travel to fall nearly 1 percent from the year before to 34.8 million. But 35.5 mil-lion Americans actually traveled last year, according to a survey conducted following the holiday weekend. For its forecast, AAA works with research company IHS Global, which uses economic data to come up with its projections. A separate company, D.K. Shifflet & Associates surveys more than 50,000 households after the trips have been taken. Official: Immigration program up for review

LIFE Sunday, May 18, 2014 Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert By LT. ANA MARINGSpecial to the Reporter PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii A 2011 Branford High School graduate and McAlpin native is serving aboard a U.S. Navy attack submarine, the USS Columbia (SSN 771). Petty Officer 3rd Class Chad Evans Rucker is a machinist mate aboard the Hawaii-based boat, a Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarine, and was specifically named in honor of Columbia, S. C., Columbia, Mo., and Columbia, Ill. Measuring 361 feet long, 33 feet wide, weighing 7,000 tons when submerged and with a complement of more than 130 sailors, USS Columbia is one of the most versatile weapons platforms ever placed in the world’s oceans, capable of long range Tomahawk strike operations, anti-submarine and surface ship ping operations, surveillance and intelligence gather ing, and special forces insertions. Attack submarines are designed to pursue and attack enemy submarines and surface ships using torpedoes. They also carry cruise missiles with con ventional high-explosive warheads to attack enemy shore facilities. They also conduct intelligence, sur veillance and reconnaissance missions, mine laying and support special operations. As a 20 year-old with numerous responsibilities, Rucker said he was only earning $3 an hour after high school. “Growing up my family instilled a good work ethic in me,” said Rucker. “I wanted to give back to my parents and help support them.”Highly trained and skilled personnelColumbia, along with all other U.S. Navy subma rines, is manned solely by volunteers from within the Navy. Because of the stressful environment aboard submarines, personnel are accepted only after rigor ous testing and observation. Submariners are some of the most highly trained and skilled people in the Navy. The training is highly technical and each crew has to be able to operate, maintain, and repair every system or piece of equipment on board. Regardless of ‘W hen I was walking in Memphis”…. Oops! Wrong city…. I was walking in Nashville. And walk we did. Scott and I spent our 20th anniversary exploring the city of Nashville a couple of weeks ago. As soon as we arrived at our hotel by cab and checked our luggage because the room wasn’t ready, Scott handed me his iPad and said, “This is where I want to go for lunch.” My initial thought was, “oh great, barbecue,” not my favorite, but I thought I’d be a team player and get it over with. So then I asked him where this place was and he said he didn’t know. I checked the map. It was on Gleaves Street around 11th. We were on Union and 4th. So I’m thinking; OK, seven to eight blocks, that’s not too bad. What I didn’t expect in Nashville was the terrain. There were so many hills. Now when we visit other TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton Walking in NashvilleA healthy Florida-friendly landscape is home to a great diver sity of wildlife.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: My daugh ter’s third birthday is coming soon, and since the new thing is sending out website-gener ated invitations, I have noticed that it is becoming common to include the child’s interests, clothes/shoe size, etc. in the invitation. I’m uncomfortable about including this information because I feel a child should be grateful for anything he or she receives as a gift. Am I too old-fashioned or is this tacky? If it is acceptable these days, what’s a good way to provide a child’s wish list without sound ing expectant of anything? — YOUNG MOM IN SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA DEAR YOUNG MOM: I appreciate that you want to teach your child good manners and good values. How else are children to learn if their parents don’t take the time to explain what they are? I understand some parents try to save time by including the information you have described along with their party invita tions, but frankly, it IS tacky. The parents of prospective guests should reply to the invi tation by ASKING what gifts the child would enjoy or can use. If the invitation was issued online, the question can be asked via texting or email. However, a phone call is more personal and, frankly, more refined. DEAR ABBY: I am a 38-year-old male who has never been married. I have been in three serious relationships, all of them with women who have children. Each time when these relationships ended, I found myself heartbroken and trau matized. I experienced a kind of withdrawal because of the emotional bond I had with the children. I have now decided to date only women who have no children. But my friends and co-workers say I’m being short-sighted and “closing the door to several opportunities.” Because of our disagreements, I find myself spending more and more time away from them, and more time alone. Are my friends right? Or should I stick to my guns and keep looking for that special someone who does not come with a family attached? — MONTANA LONELY DEAR MONTANA LONELY: If you prefer to start dating women who don’t have children, that is your priv ilege. Your friends may think you will be missing out on a good thing, but it’s really none of their business. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Deal with anyone or anything that you feel might threaten your sta tus. Make personal changes that suit the changing times and that allow you to utilize your knowl edge and skills to the fullest. Don’t let emotional matters deter you from reaching your goals. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will find out something inter esting about your lineage if you spend time with an older relative.

Back off if someone comes on too strong. Arguments will leave you feeling anxious and uncertain about what to do next. Spend more time checking out an unusual pastime or indulging in a creative hobby. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Plan to do something that gets you moving physically and stimulates you mentally. Travel or taking an adventurous day trip will help you see life differently. Venturing down a path that offers a unique philosophy or spiritual direction will bring you greater clarity. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get caught up. Sharing your tasks with friends or family will make your day more enjoyable and give you reason to celebrate when you finish. You can’t buy love but you can treat the ones you love, so share your space. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A change of heart will develop if you become embedded in an argu ment. Try to avoid being put on the spot or given an ultimatum. Focus on learning, listening and using diplomacy to step outside a situation that you cannot win. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Investigate places in your com munity that you think you might enjoy. Sharing your findings with a friend or lover will open up a con versation that will lead to unique changes at home and to the way you live your life. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Embrace socializing.

Although it is diffi cult for most people to imagine living on a submarine, challeng ing submarine living conditions actually build strong fellow ship among the crew. The crews are highly motivated, and quick ly adapt to changing conditions. It is a busy life of specialized work, watches, and drills. Rucker said he is very proud of the work he is doing as part of the Columbia’s 130-member crew, pro tecting America on the world’s oceans. Imagine working and living in a 361-foot long, 33-foot wide, three-story building with no windows and surrounded by tech nology. Then lock the doors, submerge beneath the surface of the ocean and travel silently underwater for months. This requires a tremendous amount of skill, knowledge, personal discipline, and teamwork. “I’m very proud of all USS Columbia sailors and equally impressed with the type and quality of work that goes aboard the sub marine each day,” said Commander J. Patrick Friedman, Columbia’s commanding officer. As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon assets, Rucker and other USS Columbia sailors know they are part of a lega cy that will last beyond their lifetimes. “The Navy has taught me how to take care of myself,” said Rucker. “The first time my mom saw me folding my laundry she nearly had a heart attack.” RUCKERContinued From 1D not have stingers, but they have spines (nettling hairs) that are connected to poison glands. Some people experience severe reactions to the poison released by the spines and require medical attention. Others experience only an itching or burning sensation. If you are stung by one of these caterpillars, place clear tape over the affected area and strip it off repeatedly to remove the spines. Apply ice packs to reduce the stinging sensation, and follow with a paste of bak ing soda and water. The Saddleback caterpillar is a very unusual and striking insect. It is brown with a green back and sides. It looks like it is wearing a green saddle blanket with a brown oval spot where the saddle would be. The “blanket” and “saddle” are even edged nicely with a white band. It may exceed an inch in length and is stout-bodied. A pair of protrusions on the front end and a pair on the back end have the stinging hairs. There is also a row of smaller stinging organs on each side, just below the edge of the blanket. This caterpillar feeds on many plants, including hibiscus and palms. The Puss caterpillar has a convex shape and grows to nearly one inch long. It is com pletely covered with soft, fuzzy gray to brown hairs. Under the soft hairs, however, are stiff spines that are attached to poison glands. Puss caterpillars feed on a variety of broadleaf trees and shrubs, and are often found on oaks and citrus. Another colorful stinging caterpillar is the Io moth cat erpillar. It is pale green with yellow and red stripes along the sides. It often exceeds two inches in length and is fairly stout. The nettling organs are on short protrusions, and the spines are usually yellow with black tips. They feed on a wide range of plants, but ixora and roses are their favorite host plants. A caterpillar that rings true to its name is the Hag cater pillar. It is light to dark brown and has up to nine pairs of vari able-length spines that bear the stinging hairs. These spines are curved and twisted, reminding one of the messy hair of a hag. It is found on various forest trees and ornamental shrubs. Natural enemies usually keep these unusual creatures under control. So if you usually control pests by ‘picking and squishing’, these are a few you may want to leave for natural means. See what they look like at By JOHN R. PIERSOLSpecial to the Reporter Florida Gateway College has a new 18 credit all online Certificate in Horticulture consist ing of six, three credit courses which are basic plant science courses needed for any horti culture career. The six classes are Principles of Plant Growth, Soils & Fertilizers, Agricultural Chemistry, Irrigation for Golf & Landscape, Turf for Golf & Landscape, and Landscape Plants. The target student market for this formal college credit certificate is employees working in the golf and landscape industries who like what they are doing and who want some formal plant science education, but who cannot afford to leave work to attend a college campus. This is a growing student market that can be best reached with online courses. The employee can learn many of the hands-on skills from the employer on the job, but the employer does not have the time to teach in-depth courses like those above. Although the primary target students are those working in the golf and landscape industries, this certificate would be good for anyone working in any horticulture career like garden centers, nurs eries, sod farms, small farm operations, and even for the home gar dener. These are college credit classes, so stu dents must apply to the college and be accepted before registering for classes. These courses start at the beginning of the fall, spring, and sum mer semesters. For students gradu ating from high school and who are interested in a career as a golf course superintendent or landscape manager, it is suggested that they first work in the golf or landscape industry to be certain that really is what they want to do. Work experience is essential part of career development, and it is the only way someone can determine if either of these careers is for them. After a couple of months on the job, the student can start taking the online certificate cours es. Working full-time, a student should usually take no more than two courses a semester. After completing the certificate, if the student desires to be in upper management with a land scape company or wants to be a golf course super intendent, then pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration should be the next step. In the job market today, the combination of work experience, basic hor ticulture courses, and a business degree will work well. The golf and landscape industries need people who have this combination, and the business courses are getting increasingly important. A student can take the certificate cours es first and then work in industry, but the before mentioned approach really is the best for the student. The Golf and Landscape Programs area (known for years on the FGC campus as GLO for Golf & Landscape Operations) has schol arship money to help students pursue the cer tificate. Any student inter ested in any scholarships at FGC has to fill out the federal FASFA form. It is planned to implement the certificate scholarships as reimbursement schol arships in which the stu dent registers and pays for the courses taken. Then at the end of each semester, if the student receives a grade of “C” or better, he/she is eligi ble for a reimbursement scholarship. Below a “C” grade, the student pays. This scholarship money was raised by industry to help educate people for the golf and landscape industries to encourage students to pursue these rewarding careers where there is a good job mar ket around the state and throughout the south east. More can be learned about this new Certificate in Horticulture by going to and click ing on “academics” and then clicking on golf and landscape operations. Any interested person can also contact John R. Piersol at 386-754-4225 or John R.

However, I didn’t know that this area Scott wanted to go to was on the other side of the rail road tracks. It’s called The Gulch and it seems to be an up and coming, trendy area with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. So we made our way to Peg Leg Porker – he’d seen this featured on the TV show, BBQ Pitmasters. The walk there wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be, but it was hot and I wasn’t prepared. The food was worth it. Then we walked back to Honky Tonk Row. And then we walked back to our hotel. From Honky Tonk Row to 4th and Union, it was all uphill. It made for a long four blocks. So then the next day was our anniversary and Scott was looking for a nice steak restaurant to take me. After researching several web sites, he decided on Kayne Prime. It’s on McGavock St., off 11th – on the other side of the tracks – in the Gulch. I refused to walk there because I didn’t want to sit through dinner all sweaty, so we took a cab. However, we walked back, stopping along Honky Tonk Row again before the trek uphill to our hotel. While searching for the steak restaurant the day before, Scott stumbled on a burger joint he wanted to save for Friday. It was called Burger Republic. And guess what? It was located in the Gulch, on 11th Ave, on the other side of the tracks and we walked—there and back. I began teasing Scott about taking me to the “other side of the tracks.” One day we also walked from downtown, across the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge over the Cumberland River, then by LP Stadium, and back across the river and to the State Capitol. And after all of that walking, we climbed the near 150 steps to get up to the capitol building. Not to mention that we still had to walk back to our hotel. Fortunately, from here it was back downhill. What a great way to see the city, walking and taking in all of the sites. It was our first visit and we both said we wanted to go back… nothing like walk ing in Nashville! NASHVILLEContinued From 1D IT’S A GIRL!
