2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 MIAMI T wenty people have been charged by federal pros ecutors in South Florida with fraud scheme involving cell phones. An indictment returned Friday charges that the group obtained information on legiti mate cell service subscribers. They then used that information to add additional users to the legitimate accounts, entitling them to buy additional phones at a discount. The retail price for the phones ranged from $550 to $649. Prosecutors say the scheme allowed the group to purchase phones for about $200. The ringleaders employed runners to purchase the discounted phones and paid them $100 for each phone purchased. Investigators say 860 Verizon customer accounts were fraud ulently accessed and more than 1,200 phones purchased in the scam. Verizon’s loss was estimat ed at $545,500. Charges include wire fraud, access device fraud and aggra vated identity theft.

Francis and Florida Veterans Foundation Inc. have organized a three-day “Stand Down” event for about 300 veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. “Can you just imagine, you come home with PTSD, you have no home no family, no nothing,” said Francis. “This is a terrible, terrible situation.” Participants will live in tents set up by local fire, police and active duty mili tary volunteers. The veterans and their families will have access to medical care, housing assistance, counseling and employment and legal services. They also will get hot meals, showers, clean clothes and haircuts. Francis will address the veterans Saturday night. She says she plans to work with Miami’s mayor on efforts to help veterans.‘World’s ugliest woman’ seeks anti-bullying film AUSTIN, Texas — In December 2013, she inspired millions with her TED Talk. Now Lizzie Velasquez, once called “the world’s ugliest woman,” hopes to reach an even-wider audience through an anti-bullying documentary about her story. “I know what it is to be bullied and what is to be bullied online, and I want to be the protector of those who think it won’t get better,” said Velasquez, 25, who has a rare disease that makes it impossible for her to gain weight. She has never weighed more than 64 pounds and is blind in one eye. “The idea is that they see the docu mentary and realize that, yes, it is pos sible to overcome everything,” she told The Associated Press during an inter view in a coffee shop in Austin, Texas. She’s raising money for the film, tentatively titled “The Lizzie Project,” through a Kickstarter campaign that has already collected more than $123,000 in donations. The cam paign, whose trailer can be seen at TheLizzieProject.com, ends May 31. The goal is to raise $180,000. Velasquez was born in Austin in 1989 with a syndrome so rare only two other people in the world are known to have it. After widow’s death, Crazy Horse led by three SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The death of Crazy Horse Memorial leader Ruth Ziolkowski triggers a succession plan that transfers leadership to three people focused on advancing three main compo nents: the monumental mountain carv ing, an American Indian museum and an Indian university, its president said. Ziolkowski, who died Wednesday of cancer at age 87, had taken over leader ship of the Black Hills tourist attraction that honors Native Americans upon the 1982 death of her husband, sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski. “There’s no one successor or two successors in this story,” said Laurie Becvar, president and chief operating officer of the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation. “The succession is the executive management team and there’s three of us. We’re all equal players.” Two of Ziolkowski’s daughters, Jadwiga and Monique, are the others. The memorial is envisioned to show the legendary Oglala Lakota warrior astride a horse and pointing east in a carving that will be 641 feet long and 563 feet high — higher than the Washington Monument.Ferguson earns $4 million in wine auction HONG KONG — Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has earned nearly $4 million by selling off part of his vintage wine collection at an auction in Hong Kong. Scripture of the Day If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you.

From staff reportsU.S. Rep Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, on Friday asked for the resignation of Eric Shinseki, secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Shinseki has come under fire in recent months for allegations of secret waiting lists at VA centers across the nation. At the Phoenix VA, at least 40 veterans are said to have died awaiting medical care as a result. The misconduct that has happened under your leadership breaches the sacred trust between a veteran and the nation they risked their lives to protect, Yoho wrote. As a veteran yourself, surely you understand the gravity of VA officials falsifying records to make it seem as though our nations veterans are receiving the care they need. Veterans have died as a result of the gross negligence of your department. It is with this in mind that we ask for your resignation as Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The letter was signed by four other members of Congress: Steve Southerland, R-Panama City; Ileana RosLehtinen, R-Miami; Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland; and Richard Nugent, R-Spring Hill.Yoho asks for Shinseki to resign YohoFrom staff reportsThe county commission will hold a special meeting and workshop Tuesday to discuss funding for the coming years budget. Topics will include the cost of animal control; administrative space needs; real estate and other purchases; street lighting; stormwater systems maintenance; school recreation projects; percentage based budgeting; gas taxes; stormwater mitigation; library funding; recreation enhancements; detention center repair/replacement; economic development; communications system improvements; salary sur vey implementation; merit pay for county employees; paid time off policy.

What started as a popular time-waster in the 1970s or further back, if you look at some of the early patents has escalated into a multi-billion dollar industry today. What was once an industry that was devoted to children and nerds stereotypically, maybe, but as a lifelong video game player, I know its the truth has now expanded to include almost all walks of life. Seriously, look at the numbers: according to the market research company NPD Group, there was approximately $15.39 billion spent on video game content last year. Thats in the United States alone. Obviously, thats a lot of money and the industry is continuing to grow thanks to new developments. New games are at your fingertips and, if you have a smartphone in your hand, this is a very literal statement. No longer are you required to go into a store to purchase a physical copy of the game a few presses with your finger and you can have new content streamed instantly to your device. And though mega corporations such as Activision and Electronic Arts produce some of the top selling games annually, independent game designers people like you and I are making a fortune putting out some of the hottest titles, without the backing of a bigname publisher. I mean, come on the guy who made Flappy Bird was pulling in $50,000 a day just a few months ago, so anything is possible. Because of this, gaming is attractive to a widerange of individuals, and Florida Gateway College is letting students get their feet wet in the industry with its Video Game Design program. This College Credit Certificate program features eight courses and allows students to learn and understand the basics of video games. It can be completed in two semesters depending on college placement testing. Building the groundwork means that the certificate doesnt just focus on one area of game design; it encompasses all of them programming, production, writing, and an overview of the industry. For example, the History of Video Games is pretty much what it sounds like you research and study video games, classic and modern, and learn about important titles and important people in the industry. Another first semester class, Game Design and Gameplay, is an introduction to game design and game creation: what you need to do to make games, what goes into them, what jobs are available, and prepares students to think like video game designers, requiring them to document an original game idea of their own. The second semester is even more in-depth Digital Storytelling for Video Games is a crash course on story writing and learning to write interactive stories. Remember, video games are interactive the game changes on the players actions within the game, so obviously the story must change as well. Introduction to Game Production highlights the business and management side of things, and Applied Game Design is a more advanced version of a first-semester class. During this course, students will create a modification or game of their own. Additionally, throughout the course of the certificate work, students will learn graphic design, modern programming, and Adobe Photoshop in three other courses. Now, FGCs Video Game Design certificate wont guarantee you a job with the big boys of the video game industry. What it will do, however, is a couple of things. First, itll let you get your feet wet. Playing video games is one thing; designing them is something completely different, and it may not be for everyone. This certificate will allow you to see if this field is a viable option for you. And secondly, it allows students to get a feel for what they like. You may not enjoy the programming part of the video game design, but you may like the story writing or production. But youll never know until you get your foot in the door, and you can do that this fall at Florida Gateway College. More information about the program can be obtained by e-mail Professor Josiah Lebowitz at josiah.lebowitz@fgc.edu or by calling (386) 752-1822. And if youre interested in setting up a guided tour of campus, please call (386) 754-4246.

Trippensee also wants to become an engineer. Shell finish her Associate of Arts degree, then hopes to transfer to the University of Florida where she wants to major in industrial and systems engineering. Trippensee said she was nervous about her speech because she wanted to give her peers good advice -something they can hold on to. She ended her address by reading a Winnie the Pooh quote There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if were apart Ill always be with you. GRADUATIONContinued From 1A By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comGraduation acts as a pause. For a few hours, students dont have to stress about homework or fret about the future. Its a time for graduates to reflect to look at what theyve accomplished, be proud of the challenges theyve overcome and share their joy with their classmates, teachers, friends and family. Thats true for all of the graduates of Columbia High Schools class of 2014. Its especially true for Lucy Johnson. Shes the first of her mothers children to graduate from high school and one of the few high school graduates in her family in generations. She has a lot to reflect on and be proud of. Her path to graduation has been filled with roadblocks, including the death of her best friend and an unexpected pregnancy. Johnson began to struggle with school her sophomore year. She had stomach problems and got easily distracted. She decided regular school was too much and enrolled in night school her junior year, she said. But Johnson realized she wasnt learning anything and went back to day school her senior year. She was headed for straight As first semester when her best friend died in a car accident. I know that she should be here [at graduation] she said. Then, Johnson got pregnant and was sick a lot. She missed a lot of school after that. I had to push myself to come to school, she said. I felt like I was never gonna pass. She said her mother was her biggest cheerleader and source of motivation. When she would lie in bed sick, her mother would make her get up. Her mom would also make her go to her doctor appointments. She told her to do it for the son shell have in about a month, Johnson said. Her mom never doubted her, but others did. Johnson said classmates, even teachers, sometimes asked her how she was going to graduate since she missed so much school. They sometimes looked at her like she was never going to make it, she said. But she knew she could do it. I look at them now and say I told you so, she said. Assistant Principal Kay Dekle said Johnson is extraordinary. Im going to have to give her a special smile when I call her name, Dekle, who read the names of students as they walked across the stage Friday, said before the ceremony. Clad in her purple gown with her long, blond hair loosely curled and about eight months pregnant, Johnson graduated. Next she'll be studying biotechnology at Santa Fe College in Gainesville. She said she became interested in biotechnology when she studied it in ninth grade biology. Since then, shes known thats what she wants to do. Its gonna be another tough challenge, Johnson said. I dont think its gonna come as quick as I want it to because of my son. But shes taking it one step at a time. I have big dreams, Johnson said. This is the first step in getting there.Overcoming the odds JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterColumbia High Salutatorian Anna Trippensee gives her speech during the commencement ceremony Friday night.

God bless the fallen Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITOR TODAY IN HISTORY To the Editor:On Thursday and Friday evenings, I attended the baccalaure-ate and graduation of the Class of 2014 from Columbia High School. Both events were well thought out, scheduled and very impres-sive. Both events begin with the Presentation of the Colors, The Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. As a veteran of 28 years serving our great nation in the United States Air Force, I must state that I was appalled and disappointed with the actions of approximately 50 percent of CHS’s administrators and supervisors, in that while they stood, because we were asked to stand, they did not place their right hand over their heart to show reverence to our flag, show our allegiance and respect our National Anthem. Placing your hand over your heart demonstrates that respect. Unfortunately, the graduates and their families, in the audience, could see this complete disrespect for our nation. They are the educators of our children, their responsibility is to mold and guide young minds for the future. Unfortunately, they have failed in garnering any respect for this great nation and what it has stood for, continues to stand for and the free-doms provided for all. And, they did not demonstrate respect for our country, its flag and its serving military. The veterans that have served and those who have been buried beneath that flag deserve our respect and homage. John AldousLake City School officials showed lack of respect On this date:In 1787, the Constitutional Convention began at the Pennsylvania State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia after enough delegates had shown up for a quorum. In 1935, Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final home run of his career, for the Boston Braves, in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1942, U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Joseph Stilwell, frustrated over being driven out of Burma by Japanese troops during World War II, told reporters in Delhi, India: “I claim we got a hell of a beating.” In 1961, President John F. Kennedy told Congress: “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achiev-ing the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.” To the Editor: Would it be possible to find out how our country is doing today versus 10 years ago? In regards to education, graduation rates, com-parison of math and reading skills of 12th graders nationwide from 2004 2014. Also, employment rates of our total population versus the number employed. How many of these are full-time versus part-time? Compare this to 2004 – 2014. How many people are on welfare and Social Security Disability including the number of people with health insurance including Medicaid? Compare this also to 2004 – 2014. What would $100 buy in 2004 versus 2014? If all of these were gross numbers and not percentages altered by who put the numbers together we could see if we were better off today or 10 years ago. I hope we are but I don’t think we are. Irv CrowetzLake City Are we better off than we were 10 years ago? Editor’s note: The following letter was sent Friday to Eric Shinseki, sec-retary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, by U.S. Rep Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, and four other members of Congress. Dear Secretary Shinseki,The United States of America has the most formidable military in history not because of our equip-ment or munitions, but because of the brave men and women who fill its ranks. For your service to this nation, your will forever have our gratitude. However, developments at the Department of Veterans Affairs that have recently come to light are troubling at best and crimi-nal at worst. The recent allegation that a “secret list” was being used at the Phoenix VA Medical Center to manipulate wait time data, and that it may have directly contributed to the deaths of at least 40 veterans, is deeply troubling. This concern is compounded by similar allegations that are being echoed throughout the country of intentional scheduling misconduct and subsequent deaths related to extended wait times. In our home state, the great State of Florida, there are nine VA Medical Centers and over 40 VA outpatient clinics, that provide ser-vices to over 1.5 million veterans. Numerous reports of misconduct have already been reported within our state’s VAMCs, and if the past few weeks are any indication, more are certain to follow. This alone is an indication of a systemic prob-lem plaguing the VA that has been allowed to perpetuate, and it has occurred under your leadership. Reports of “secret lists” and skirting rules and guidelines among VA employees fly in the face of the organization’s stated goal of protect-ing our nation’s veterans. Ensuring that our veterans receive the care they need should be the foundation upon which the entire organization is built. These allegations shake that foundation, and betray the very core of your mission. The misconduct that has happened under your leadership breaches the sacred trust between a veteran and the nation they risked their lives to protect. As a veteran yourself, surely you under-stand the gravity of VA officials falsifying records to make it seem as though our nation’s veterans are receiving the care they need. Veterans have died as a result of the gross negligence of your department. It is with this in mind that we ask for your resignation as Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs. This request does not come lightly. However, the misconduct that has happened under your watch leaves us with little choice. We have a commitment to our vet-erans and their families to ensure accountability and justice. We must fight for those who fought for us, and honor their service to this great nation. Sincerely,Ted YohoSteve SoutherlandIleana Ros-LehtinenDennis RossRichard NugentShinseki should resign Work toward an Iran accord is proceeding S ecretary of State John F. Kerry launched three major peace-making efforts last year – the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, a quest for an end to the Syrian civil war and talks to resolve the conflict between Iran and other nations over its nuclear ambitions. The Israeli-Palestinian negotiations have stalled and the Syrian conflict has proceeded beyond talks, but the effort with Iran is still very much afloat. The most recent talks took place in Vienna last week, between the Iranians and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council – China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States – plus Germany. No accord emerged, but observers said the atmosphere and communications are good and both sides are prepar-ing to present a more concrete draft agreement, perhaps after the next talks, in June. The framework under which the talks are taking place provides for them to end by July 20, but there is no reason why they cannot be pro-longed. ... Both sides have strong reasons to want an agreement. The United States, and its ally Israel, want assurance that Iran will not develop a nuclear weapons capacity. On the other side, Iran’s economy contin-ues to stagger under the burden of sanctions, until an accord lessens or eliminates them. The world needs to do all that it can to enhance pros-pects for success in the negotiations that would benefit all parties to them. U.S. cooperation with China and Russia in achieving an Iran agree-ment would also serve to calm the troubled waters between America and these two powers. Q Pittsburgh Post Gazette 4AOPINION

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 month with the school principal and the district’s health services coordinator, it was agreed safe guards would be put in place to prevent loss of further med ication. Boozer, who later admit ted stealing students’ medica tion and consuming it herself, according to a sheriff’s report, said she’d dropped the child’s Ritalin down the sink and need ed more. Boozer was arrested May 13 and charged with petit theft and possession of a con trolled substance, jail records show. During the February meet ing with Pinemount Principal Donna McAdams and District Coordinator for Health Care Services Kim Allison it was agreed stoppers would be kept in the sink in the nurse’s office and that the pills would be moved from a cabinet above the sink. Both these precautions were put into place. However, the Elwells say more was promised as well. They claim one of the women – they don’t remember which – agreed to have another adult present when Boozer dispensed pills to their grandson. McAdams said she doesn’t remember the request and never made such a promise. “I just know what I would do and what I wouldn’t do,” she said. She also said she lacks the personnel to place a monitor in the nurse’s office when drugs are dispensed. “I don’t have the staff to do that,” she said. “In a school set ting, that would really not be feasible.” Allison said she would not have made such a promise because she lacks the authority to do so. McAdams said she did agree to tell Boozer to get help con trolling students when too large a crowd was gathered in the nurse’s office. Boozer had claimed she spilled the medica tion down the sink because of confusion from the 10-12 stu dents who had shown up all at once for their pills. McAdams said she told the Elwells that in the future, Boozer was to ask someone in the front office to help with crowd control when necessary. The school has a buddy sys tem, McAdams said, so if 10 stu dents are waiting to take their medicine, that means a crowd of 20 is in the room at once. Plus, there may be sick students in the nurse’s office waiting to get picked up, she said. McAdams said it didn’t seem odd that Boozer spilled pills because of the large crowd in her office when it supposedly happened. “It seemed very feasible that that could happen,” she said. However, the Elwells stand behind their assertion that they were promised a monitor would be present when their grand son’s medication was dispensed. They were assured that “someone would be in there to help, especially when [their grandson] was in the nurse’s office getting his meds,” Chris Elwell said. Teresa Elwell said it was final ly agreed that a monitor would be present, not just when her grandson got his pills, but when drugs were dispensed to every student. McAdams insisted that didn’t happen, but did say she may have been misunderstood. “My emphasis was that when it’s that crowded, we need some body else in there,” she said. “But how someone interprets that, I cannot control that.” The Elwells originally wanted even more than they say they were promised. Teresa Elwell said she began to cry at the meeting and begged for McAdams to drug test Boozer. According to her, McAdams said she didn’t have strong enough evidence to order a drug test, and felt it unnecessary because Boozer was drug tested when she was hired. “They could’ve prevented it,” Chris Elwell said.Delayed notificationAccording to her arrest report, Boozer admitted steal ing students’ pills beginning in October, and said she stole medication about 30 times and consumed it herself, sometimes at work. Allison said Boozer mostly stole ADD and ADHD medicine. School officials became sus picious earlier this month when a student’s mother came to Pinemount with a receipt for 27 of her child’s pills that she had to replace because Boozer said she spilled them down the sink, McAdams said. Boozer was placed on leave and resigned following her arrest. The Elwells scheduled the February meeting at Pinemount after eight of their grandson’s Ritalin pills went missing. Teresa Elwell had asked Boozer to call her whenever her grandson’s pills got low so he wouldn’t run out. On Feb. 18, Boozer called her to say her grandson only had one pill left. Chris Elwell said they knew he should’ve had more than one left, especially since there was no school the previous Friday due to the Olustee Festival or on Monday, Feb. 17, which was President’s Day. Teresa Elwell said she had started keeping track of her grandson’s medication on a calendar because his pills had been running out sooner than they should have at school. She wasn’t home when she got Boozer’s call, but when she checked her calendar she saw her grandson should have had eight pills left, she said. The next morning, Feb. 19, she called Boozer to tell her what she had found. “She [Boozer] paused before she answered, and she said ‘I bet you that was his [pills] I spilled down the sink,’” Teresa Elwell said. She said during that phone call Boozer didn’t tell her when the pills were spilled. But about 20 minutes later, Boozer called back and said she had a signed and witnessed form with the date of the spill, Feb. 10, record ed on it, Teresa Elwell said. “If [a spill] did happen, you report it then,” Chris Elwell said. “You don’t wait eight or nine days later.” District and school policy do not allow for delayed parental notification of lost or spilled drugs. Teresa Elwell said when Boozer called to tell her only one pill remained, she admitted to spilling pills before. However, the incident with her grandson’s pills was the first one document ed, according to school records at Pinemount. “‘Her words were, ‘I have a tendency to drop pills down the sink.’ And it floored me. I couldn’t even say anything,” Teresa Elwell said. Elwell said she immediately went to Pinemount to personally administer the one pill Boozer said her grandson had left. But when she arrived at the school, her grandson had no pills left, she said, and Boozer claimed she never said there was one pill remaining.‘Unbelievable’After that, Teresa Elwell turned to the district office for help. She called Assistant Superintendent Narragansett Smith about the alleged pill spill, but Smith never called her back, she said. She later learned Smith had told McAdams to handle it at the school level, since the spill appeared to be an isolated incident. Supt. Terry Huddleston said that was the right procedure at that point in the investigation. Teresa Elwell then set up a meeting with McAdams, who said she was going to investigate the matter. The meeting with McAdams and Allison followed a day or two later. Teresa Elwell said McAdams and Allison defended Boozer at the meeting. “They said, ‘We know her. She’s worked too hard. She just got her bachelor’s degree. She hasn’t slept since you guys made these allegations, She’s really goin’ through it,’” Teresa Elwell said. “I mean, they made us feel bad.” After that meeting, the Elwells said they thought the problem was solved. “That was probably stupid,” Teresa Elwell said. She said she trusted school officials to take care of things. “When we left the meeting, we were a little bit uneasy but pretty much satisfied,” Chris Elwell said. “Now we see they were just saying all that to shut us up.” The situation is still hard to fathom for his wife. “It’s all so unbelievable. You know, when it was happening in February, you tell your self there’s no way,” she said. “There’s no way she’s doing that, and they’re standing up for her like this. There’s just no way. But now that it’s all out, and you look back at how, and them saying they were gonna watch her and do all this. And none of it. It’s unbelievable to me. I can’t wrap my mind around it.”The wrong pillsWhen Boozer was arrest ed May 13, Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputy Clint Dicks called Teresa Elwell to tell her her grandson had missing med ication and Boozer was under investigation. Elwell picked up her grand son up from school immediately. She asked him if he had been given his medicine, she said. He told her that he had, but that he was given a yellow pill. His Ritalin is blue. “As soon as I said, ‘Does she give you your medicine?’ He said, ‘Yes, but it’s yellow,’” she said. “Like it had been some thing he’d been wanting to tell us but had forgot.” Elwell then asked her grand son if he told Boozer that he was supposed to take a blue pill. He said that he did, but that Boozer “forgot.” She asked him what he meant. “He said, ‘Nana, she just for got,’” Teresa Elwell said. The Elwells are having their grandson tested to see what the yellow pills he was given are. The Elwells say the boy’s behavior deteriorated when he wasn’t receiving his prescribed medication. They said he had to be picked up from school on many occasions and constantly got in trouble. His doctor increased his dos age numerous times because of those behavior problems, Teresa Elwell said. His prescrip tion was eventually upped to 25 milligrams per day, she said. She said his doctor told her it was rare for a child to be prescribed that a high a dose – though it appears he may not have been getting any of it, the Elwells believe. “Had he just been given his medicine, none of this would’ve happened,” Chris Elwell said. The child also suffers from seizures, so any changes to his medication had to be done grad ually, Teresa Elwell said. Fortunately, his seizure med ication is not administered during school hours, she said. But because he wasn’t given his Ritalin at school, he was taking twice the amount of Ritalin on the weekends as he was during the week, she said. He suffered from bad head aches and severe constipation during the school year as a result, she said. The Elwells’ grandson was not the only child at Pinemount to be given the wrong medica tion, according to parents. Boozer allegedly stole Heather Bonanno’s 5-year-old son’s ADHD medicine, and he was given a different pill for about three weeks prior to Boozer’s arrest, Bonanno said. Her son was given a white pill, but his ADHD pill is a yellow-tan color, she said. His behavior rapidly changed for the worse after he was given different medication, Bonanno said. She said her son has been tested in an effort to determine what medicine he was given, but nothing showed up. She’s now trying to have a hair follicle test done, she said. That test is more precise, she said. Back on trackNow that he is back on his medication her grandson is fine, Teresa Elwell said. She pulled him out of class and he is doing his schoolwork from home. Next year, he’ll attend Lake City Christian Academy. The Elwells are somewhat concerned their grandson’s tumultuous year in kindergar ten has given him a bad taste for school. “The one thing that worries me about it all happening this year is the impression that it’s had on him of school,” Teresa Elwell said. “He doesn’t want to go to school. He hates it. And I think that’s because he got in so much trouble at school and had to be sent to the office.” But overall, they think their grandson will bounce back. He’s very smart, Chris Elwell said, and he and his wife help him with his homework every night. “Going into first grade,” he said, “I think he’ll be fine.” By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com The former school nurse at Pinemount Elementary raised suspicions when she claimed to have spilled students’ med ications down the sink on at least two occasions, prompting her to ask for more pills. She later admitted to stealing stu dents’ medications and consum ing them herself, according to a sheriff’s arrest report. However, school records show another Pinemount employee signed a form indicating she witnessed one of the supposed spills. The “Record of Wasted, Spilled, or Dropped Medication” is dated Feb. 10 and purports to document nurse Marilee Boozer’s having spilled eight Ritalin pills down the sink in the nurse’s office. It is signed by Boozer and wit nessed by Michelle Greenwald, then a member of the Pinemount front office staff. District procedure calls for the nurse who spilled the medicine to immediately get a witness before cleaning it up, according to Kim Allison, district health services coordinator. The wit ness is supposed to “visualize” the spill, she said. “If you spill them in the sink, you’re supposed to stop and call a witness and then that witness will say, ‘Yes, I see one, two, three, four, five or whatever pills.’ That is the proper way of having a wasted amount of med ication,” Allison said. The witness, as well as the nurse who spilled the medica tion, then signs the form. The pills in this case were pre scribed to the 5-year-old grand son of Chris and Teresa Elwell, who told school officials they believed Boozer had stolen the pills and taken them herself. Allison said if all the pills had gone down the drain, Greenwald shouldn’t have signed the form, or should’ve indicated on the form that she didn’t see all the spilled pills. Greenwald declined comment for this story and would not say whether she knew the proper procedure regarding the form or what her signature was sup posed to mean. But Allison and McAdams say they believe Greenwald did know, or should have known. At district schools, selected members of the office staff and usually the principal are trained to fill in for the nurse when he or she is absent. Those employees go through the same training as school nurses, Allison said. In the training, they learn how to docu ment wasted or lost medications. McAdams said she signed a document, presented to her by Boozer, indicating Greenwald had been “clinic trained” in this manner. “If they had been clinic trained, they would know the purpose of the form,” Supt. Terry Huddleston said. Greenwald declined comment pending completion of a sheriff’s investigation, she said. She left the district on March 7 for what McAdams described as a higher-paying job with the Hamilton County School District. PINEMOUNTContinued From 1ASupposedpill spill:Was there a witness? SARAH LOFTUS/ Lake City ReporterIn an interview at the Lake City Reporter last week, Chris and Teresa Elwell said officials at Pinemount Elementary promised in Februa ry to enact safeguards to prevent the loss of students’ medications. School nurse later said she stole drugs, arrest report shows. From staff reports SUWANNEE COUNTY–A Live Oak man traveling as a passenger in a sports utility vehicle died when a pickup truck driver from Lake City pulled into the path of the vehicle he was riding in, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports. Gerardo Santiago, 26, of Live Oak was killed in the crash, which occurred around 10 p.m. Friday near the intersec tion of County Road 136 and 185th Road in Suwannee County. The drivers of both vehicles, Waylon Joseph Glenn, 25, of Lake City and Eduardo Hernandez, 23, of Live Oak were taken to area hospitals for treat ment. According to FHP, Glenn was driving a 2009 Ford F150 south on 185th Road, and had stopped at the intersection of County Road 136. At the same time, Hernandez was driv ing a 2003 Nissan Murano, with Santiago as passenger, headed east on County Road 136 approaching the intersection of 185th Road. Reports said Glenn entered County Road 136 into the path of Hernandez’s vehicle and the front of Hernandez’s vehi cle hit the right side of Glenn’s vehicle. After the crash both vehicles came to rest on the southeast corner of the intersec tion. Hernandez and Santiago were flown to Shands at the University of Florida. Santiago died in flight and was pro nounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. Hernandez was reported in serious con dition. Neither Hernandez nor Santiago were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, reports said. Glenn was taken by ambulance to Shands Live Oak with minor injuries. Charges in connection with the wreck are pending completion of the investiga tion, FHP said. Local man involved in fatal crash Friday

Remembering those who have fallen 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 By MEGAN REEVES mreeves@lakecityreporter.com C hildren and adults, veterans and non-veterans alike all gath ered on the front lawn of the Lake City VA Medical Center for one purpose Friday: to show their pride as Americans. The center held its 20th annual Memorial Day ceremony at 9:30 a.m. to honor those who gave all. The theme of this year’s event was “Catch the Spirit,” and featured keynote speaker Leandra G. Johnson, Columbia County Third Circuit Judge. Johnson spoke of the importance of remembering our veterans and their sac rifices both this weekend and year-round. “When you wake up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and go get the newspaper, let that be your time to remember,” she said. “Remember the ones who died so that you could have freedom of the press, of ideas and freedom without repercussions.” Freedom of religion, the right to bear arms and the right to a fair trial. We should credit these freedoms as well to our men and women buried in their uniforms, she said. “I think all Americans need to catch the spirit,” agreed Michael Nemish, a U.S. Army veteran and Commander of the Columbia County Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Nemish has been attending the event for 10 years and said the crowd this year was the biggest he has seen. About 350 attended Friday’s event.“It just makes my heart feel good,” he said. Benjamin Givens, a U.S. Army veter an who has been a recreational thera pist at the medical center for 36 years, agreed this time of year is special. “This event always reminds me of the guys I served with who are no lon ger here,” he said. “It’s full of special moments for me.” Givens works closely with the patients at the VA and helped walk and wheel them out to see the ceremony. “It’s important to me for them to see this,” he said. He stood by Alberto Filippini, a 21st Aviation Regiment engineer who served in the U.S. Air Force, and Korean vet eran Louis Schalamowitiz. Both men sat waving their miniature American flags to the words being sung by the Richardson Middle School Chorus. “You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag,” they sang. “And for ever in peace may you wave.” The ceremony concluded with a lay ing of the wreath to commemorate the fallen heroes of our nation, as well as a reminder to participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. on Monday. “On this memorial day weekend, let us pause and reflect on just what these men and women in uniform have given and sacrificed so unselfishly and so freely,” Johnson said. “May God bless our veterans, our fallen, and may God bless America.” She encouraged attendees to think about the families who have kissed their sons and daughters goodbye for the last time. Their sacrifices have enriched our nation as well, and those are sacrifices that we cannot forget, she said. “It’s easy to forget. Even I, as a Vietnam veteran, forget once in a while,” Nemish said. “But it don’t take me long to remember.” He said his family and children always call him their hero, but he often declines the title. “Our heroes came home in body bags,” he said. “And I try and remem ber them every day.” Honoring those who have served Veterans and the community gathered Friday to ‘Catch the Spirit’ and remember those who gave all. Officers from the Lake City Police Department Honor Guard presented the colors during the 20th Annual Memorial Day Ceremony at the Lake City VA Medical Center Friday.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014 9A are,” he said.Slight gains in mathSixty-one percent of local 3rd-graders passed math, compared to 60 percent last year. The statewide passing rate in both years was 58 percent. Five Points shot up 19 points over last year, from 41 to 60 percent passing. However, Melrose fell from 49 to 30 percent in 2014. Among charter schools, Belmont recorded a 68 percent passing rate in its first year while Shining Star Academy of the Arts report ed a passing rate of 15 per cent, down from 24 percent in 2013. “The 24 percent passing was a concern last year, but dropping to 15 per cent is very concerning,” Huddleston said. “And it’s all based on the level of instruction and the quali ty of instruction. And the teacher in the classroom.”Big gains in writingWriting scores rose dra matically among 8thand 10th-graders locally. Both groups improved their passing rate by 15 points. For 8th-graders the figure rose from 31 to 46 percent passing. The state average is 56 percent. Among local 10th-graders, 52 percent passed this year, compared to 37 percent in 2013. The state average is 64 percent. Lake City Middle School gained 20 points, from 36 percent in 2013 to 56 percent passing in 2014. Richardson Middle School rose from 19 to 33 per cent and Fort White High School improved from 35 to 41 percent. County 4th-graders didn’t fare as well, with a 48 per cent passing rate, compared to 52 percent in 2013. This year’s state average was 53 percent. Big gains at some schools in 4th-grade writing were offset by even bigger losses at others. Summers Elementary fell 20 points, from 55 percent passing in 2013 to 35 per cent this year. Five Points dropped 18 points from 2013, to 41 percent pass ing. Fort White Elementary School fell from 45 percent to 34. Huddleston said he wasn’t surprised by the decline at Summers. “Even as late as last week I spoke to a teacher over there and she said “We’re worried to death,’” he said. The drop at Five Points was a surprise though. “We were really expect ing a lower score at Summers, but we were totally surprised by Five Points,” Huddleston said. “We were not expecting that at all.” Some schools – Niblack, Eastside and Pinemount – showed major improve ment, however. Niblack rose from 66 to 81 percent; Eastside, from 46 to 59 percent; and Pinemount, from 63 to 85. Huddleston credit ed the Differentiated Accountability team that visited all three schools. “That’s impressive to me because every school had the same opportunity to have them come in and help them, look at their practice writings and make sugges tions about how we can improve,” he said. “These schools took advantage of that and it paid off.” Among charter schools, Belmont Academy 4th-grad ers passed at a rate of 20 percent, while the school’s 8th-grade passing rate was 64 percent. This is Belmont’s first year taking the FCAT. Shining Star Academy of the Arts turned in another disappointing performance. Just 13 percent of 4th-grad ers passed FCAT writing, compared to 15 percent last year. FCATContinued From 1A were glad they did. Mischa Underwood, of Warner Robins, Ga., came with family and friends to Columbia County to tube the river on Saturday. “My husband has been here several times and he wanted the rest of us to enjoy it since we’ve never been,” she said. “We loved it.” Teagan Hopkins, an elementary school-aged child who was trav eling with Underwood, said she liked naming the dragon flies and other creatures as she traveled down the river. “I got to see a manatee,” she added. Park manager Mebane CoryOgden said Saturday saw a steady line of visitors to the park. She said the north end limit, which is 750 people, was at capac ity by around 11 a.m. “The south end is also busy,” she said. “There are quite a few family reunions going on, so there are quite a few people at the head springs swimming and picnick ing.” She said attendance on Memorial Day always rates in the top three. “Memorial Day is not as busy as July 4, but it’s comparable to Labor Day, if not just a little bit busier because it’s the unofficial start of summer season for every body,” she said. Heavy spring rains caused the river to flood which is resulting in tubing routes being shortened. “Right now because of flooding, the south takeout is not available for tubers, but canoers and kayak ers can use it,” Ogden said. “It’s because of river flooding and it’s subject to change at a moment’s notice. Mother Nature is playing her tricks.” With the river flooding, the park is promoting its wildlife and scenery until tubing gets back to normal. “We’re encouraging people to walk down to the mid-point instead of waiting on the tram,” Ogden said, noting the wait could be anywhere from 30-45 minutes. “It’s only a 15-minute walk down a beautiful nature trail. It helps peo ple get healthy. We’re encouraging people to experience more than just the river.” Keith Young watched as employ ees from Lowe’s Tube Rentals tied tubes and floats to the back of his pickup truck. Young, from Tifton, Ga., was with a group of 15-20 people who decided to float down the Ichetucknee River as a “spur of the moment” decision. “I love everything about floating down the river on a tube,” he said. “It’s relaxing, it has cold water and when you get used to the cold water you can relax, sit there and just float.” Local tube rental vendors had mixed reactions to the level of activity for the first day of tubing season. “I think it’s looking pretty good,” said Linda Lynch, Lowe’s Tube Rentals co-owner. “The river is where we hoped it would be. It’s still a little flooded, but I think by next weekend we may be OK. People are coming and that’s the biggest thing.” Lynch said Memorial Day starts a little slower than the other holi days during the summer, but she’s expecting an increase in business today. Linda Soride, owner of Ichetucknee Tube Center, was not as optimistic about increased visi tors to the park today. “It’s kind of slow right now,” she said. “People call right now and ask about the river and I have to tell them that it’s flooded, so some of them don’t want to come and they said they would come later.” Soride said traditionally the Saturday of a holiday weekend is their busiest day. “On Saturdays I’ll get here about six in the morning and on Sundays, I’ll get here about 7 a.m. because it’s slower,” she said. “I’m hoping this year’s tubing season is going to be awesome. I have a lot of competition up the road and I’m believing God will bring good people to me.” Showcasing culture at the Folk FestBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com Cameron Cato can “crack” and “pop” a cow whip. Saturday the youngster held two white rawhide cow whips, jumped around and caused a “pop.” Flailed his arms and the whips popped again. He twirled around and made both whips “pop” at the same time. Cato, 16, of Summerfield, entertained a small audi ence with a sport whip cracking performance and demonstration at the 62nd Annual Florida Folk Festival. Florida’s heritage, from the origins of the cracker cowboy to the sounds of gospel music, steel drums, folk tales, crafts and foods will be celebrated again today as the 62nd Annual Florida Folk Festival con tinues in White Springs. Though he’s only 16, Cato was experienced in performing with a cow whip and plans to keep the Florida cracker cowboy tradition alive. About a year ago, Cato began an apprenticeship with George Altman, a master buckskin whip maker from Wauchula, and during the festival the two demonstrated how to make buckskin whips. “It’s been done for hundreds of years in the state,” Cato said. “I had been making nylon cow whips for about six years. I always wanted to learn how to make buckskin cow whips, I just had nobody to teach me. So, when I heard about this opportu nity I got ahold of it pretty quickly.” Cato said he has always known his family histo ry and lineage and there weren’t many people left to teach him the art of mak ing a buckskin whip. “I knew there wasn’t many of us left,” he said. “A lot of the cow land and orange groves are getting developed and you don’t see buckskin cow whips as much, so I wanted to pre serve that heritage.” Less than five minutes earlier, Mary Baugh, decided she would dance to the beat of steel drums. Baugh, of Orange Park, was attending her first Florida Folk Festival and wound up dancing for the audience along with mem bers of the Rincones de Mexico, a Mexican Folk Dance group. “I love the Florida Folk Festival,” she said. “It’s been a wonderful experi ence. That music, the steel drums, is happy music. I will be back.” Baugh was one of 30 peo ple from the Jacksonville area who traveled to the Florida Folk Festival with Destinations Unlimited Tours. Cato and Altman’s exhibit, as well as Baugh’s desire to dance, is the epit ome of what the Florida Folk Festival stands for, said Andrea Thomas, a park service specialist at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. “The purpose of the Florida Folk Festival is to showcase and celebrate the culture and heritage of Florida and everything and everyone that has made Florida,” she said. “It’s our home state and we love it for a reason and now we get to celebrate the reasons why.” The 62nd Annual Florida Folk Festival is concentrat ed on featuring aspects of the Upper and Lower St. Johns River basins with exhibits on whip making, dancing, wood carving, fly fishing and other crafts native to the area. The foods of Florida were also chronicled, whether it has Greek, Mediterranean or Cuban roots, as well as drinks such as rootbeer floats and lime fizzes. Thomas said what is special about this year’s festival is all the new acts they’ve added to pay hom age to Florida entertain ers. “We’re revamping and restyling things,” she said.

By TIM KIRBY tkirby@lakecityreporter.com Two early turnovers set the tone as Columbia High rolled to a 45-7 win in its spring game against Fort White High at Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Fort White fumbled on its first possession and Zedrick Woods came up with the ball and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown less than two minutes into the game. The Indians moved into Columbia territory on the next drive, courtesy of a 35-yard run by Cameron White. The Indians couldnt get closer than the Tigers 30 and the drive ended with an interception. If we dont have those turnovers we can get a lit tle momentum going, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. Thats a big key, especially early in a game. Columbia went to a steady diet of running back Lonnie Underwood. Fort White staved off the first drive and the teams exchanged punts. Columbia quarterback Jake Thomas ignited the Tigers on their next drive with a 27-yard completion to Dallon Washington. Underwood matched the 27 yards with his next four carries to set up a first-andgoal. Underwood scored the touchdown from three yards out for a 14-0 lead at 9:31 of the second quarter. Columbia spelled Underwood on its next series, but that only spelled trouble for the Indians. Kamario Bell broke a 71-yard run for a touch down. The Tigers 21-0 lead lasted until halftime. Fort White quarterback DJ Jackson had a 34-yard scramble late in the second quarter. Fort White stopped Columbias opening drive of the second half, but fum bled the ball right back. The Tigers turned it into a 29-yard field goal by Hunter Houston. Houston and Brant Nelson split the kick ing duties for Columbia. Fort White faced a fourthand-4 on its next posses sion. Tyler Reed, who was the victim of the early fum ble that went for a touch down, got his hands back on the ball and ran 40 yards to the Tigers 8. He got the remaining eight yards on his next run. Brandon Shrums PAT made it 24-7 at 4:14 of the third quarter. Depth took over as Columbia showcased more running backs. Daylon Sheppard and Earl Frames took turns carrying the ball. Frames scored on a 23-yard run and Sheppard scored from 43 yards out late in the third quarter. Columbia got a final rushing touchdown on a five-yard run by Dariaun Dallas. I saw our kids grow from day one in the spring, but we are always chas ing to get better, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Our offense did some things well, but we have to be better up front. We have two of our best players on the defensive side and they are surrounded by others who fly to the football. Jackson was encour aged in his search for a quarterback. DJ managed the game pretty good, Jackson said. He did a good job of run ning the option. Our guys played hard knowing the situation. Lake City Reporter SPORTS Story ideas?

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-04204BSports utdoors 360 Decorated anglers T his past weekend I fished the Sam Crosthwait Memorial. Growing up fishing this Tournament was part of our fishing DNA. If you fished, you fished the Crosthwait. Period. Otherwise, everything you “caught” was all talk! Keep in mind this was decades before iPhones and Snapchat; heck, this particular tournament used these photos called Polaroids (for the under 18 crowd, Google Polaroid photos). We looked forward to this tournament 364 days out of the year. The memories are forever burned into my memory, and it’s not just the fish. It’s the shotgun start with hundreds of boats (seemed like a million when I was really young), it’s the weigh-ins with giant offshore species hitting the deck, and the camaraderie that our sport creates. We were competing against each other, but there’s a mutual respect for anyone that consistently does well — if you can earn Top 3 year after year, then you’ve flat-out earned it. There are no shortcuts. What’s this have to do with Lake City and North Central Florida? We host local tournaments throughout the year. From fundraisers, to freshwater and saltwater, on any given weekend there is typically a tournament somewhere within 75 miles of Lake City. Some are strictly fun, some are weekly low entry fee tournaments, and some cost hundreds of dollars and more. Our area is loaded with tournament fishermen who travel all over the United States to fish. Mike McRae — aka the Kingfish Whisperer — fished over 80 tournaments in his fishing tournament career. He fished as far West as Biloxi, Miss. and as far north as Moorhead, N.C. Those locations were the SKA (Southern Kingfish Association) National Championship destinations. Eight tournaments were the most in one year that he fished, and “ultimately the wear and tear on his body did him in.” McRae said that time is the biggest factor in competitive fishing: “rigging, getting sponsors, networking with other fisherman, boat maintenance, keeping and getting new crew members, catching bait, or ordering bait making rigs would be countless hours.” This doesn’t even include costs, which ultimately depend on relationships with sponsors and the success of your fishing team. Chris Charles, of the Bluewater Predator fishing team is currently fishing tournaments from Suwannee to Mexico Beach. Charles fishes offshore, and sometimes WAY offshore, where he recently caught a 41-pound gag grouper over 130 miles into the Gulf of Mexico. That’s a gas bill that would make Donald Trump blush. His team’s biggest tournaments would be Doug Johnson’s, Rock the Dock, C-Quarters, and the MBARA-Mexico Beach Tournament. He’s racked up an impressive list of wins just in the last year (2013 — 1st place Kingfish, Open Division, Rock The Dock, 2013 — 1st place Kingfish, Fighting Gator Touchdown Club, 2013 — 1st place Grouper and 1st place Kingfish, 2014 1st place Captains Grand Slam M-M-Mel Tillis Fishing With Friends). It’s ironic Charles hails from a small town named after all of it’s freshwater lakes, yet he dominates the saltwater tournaments. Speaking of freshwater, Ron Ryals (featured in Currents) is the most decorated bass angler in our area. If you thought 130 miles into the Gulf was a haul, last year alone Ron traveled over 10,000 miles on the Paralyzed Bass Tour (not including trips from motels to bass ramps, and to get fuel and food). He fished as far away as Natick, Mass., and made “shorter” trips to Eufaula, Okla., Garland, Texas, Mt. Vernon, Ill., Gilbertsville, Ky., Waldorf, Md., and Kissimmee. He’s essentially a modern day Lewis and Clark, with a shiny bass boat in tow! As for team Outdoors360.com this past weekend, I had a successful return home with my first pair of snook in several years over 30 inches (33 inches and 35 inches), along with a 23-inch trout, and we also had a 29-inch redfish. Here’s the kicker with tournaments, we sold out for the win. We went head on to 3-5 foot seas to go all-in for cobia. Within five minutes at our first spot we had a 50-pound cobia come right up to the back of the boat. I pitched a fresh threadfin on his nose, he sounded, came back up, and we pitched a pinfish and threadfin right back to him. He ignored every single bait. If that fish decides to eat we come in Top 5, with a legitimate shot to win the whole thing with one more decent trout (the easiest to catch). So close, almost, just one fish, etc. Such is the life for tournament fishermen.Q Rob Chapman IV is a tournament winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City. He’s an award winning marine artist, a graduate of Florida Gateway College and of Jacksonville University. He is currently the Coordinator of Marketing, Web, & Graphics Production at FGC, and is active both in the outdoors and designing for outdoors companies throughout the world. He’d love to hear from you!

By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com T he Third Judicial Circuit is moving towards becoming a paperless court, and plans to have a new system operational within the next month to reach its goal. Sondra Lanier, Third Judicial Circuit trial court administrator, said the circuit has implemented a new computer system that will automate the work of judges and others to bring local courts into the digital age. For those of us in the court system, during our careers, this is probably the single most sig nificant change in the way we do business because we are going from the way courts have han dled cases for hundreds of years to the electronic age, she said. The computer system the judges use through the clerk of courts office lets them view cases and documents digitally. However, the judges cannot make changes to the data. Lanier said with the new sys tem judges are able to search documents, make notes on them, highlight, copy and paste, and make alterations as needed. The system, called aiSmart Bench, is organized by docu ment types. The approximate cost for the new program in the Third Judicial Circuit was about $450,000, which came from a combination of sources. Each of the seven counties that make up the Third Judicial Circuit paid a pro-rata share from court costs in criminal cases that was earmarked for court innovations. The county part of that was paid from court costs in the criminal cases and the state part has been funded with mortgage foreclosure settlement funds paid by banks, Lanier said. Four pilot program judges in the Third Circuit were trained first on the system and Jill Hoblick, court administration office administrative services manager, has been working to train the other judges and staff. The pilot judges have really been doing their best to not use the paper files in their prepara tion, so were gearing up to be paperless, she said. Hoblick said a kick-off meet ing took place Aug. 30, 2013, when clerks from around the circuit met to discuss implement ing the program and the process moved forward from there. There are 23-inch touchscreen monitors in all four courtrooms and each judge has a smaller monitor in the hearing rooms as a result of the new program. We have told the Florida Supreme Court that well go live and be fully operational by July and we expect to meet that tar get, Lanier said. Although the ultimate goal of the program is to have paperless court system, Lanier said there are other entities that continue to use mostly paper files. Some of the judges are now using aiSmartBench, but they have the paper files there in case they run into a problem, because were still working out the bugs, Lanier said, noting more judges have to be trained on system operation. Its a big process because we have seven counties. Judges, magistrates, court administration staff and some clerk of court staff personnel are being trained for implementation of the new system. A mandate from the Florida Supreme Court is the impetus of the move to go paperless. Lanier said Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston began his term July 1, 2012, and put all the chief judges and trial court administrators on notice that implementation of this new system for trial courts was his top priority. At that point we started really researching and defining what systems we were going to use and gearing up, Lanier said. Circuit Court Judge Leandra Johnson said the new system will aid her in doing her job. This new system is very exciting because its going to be very efficient, she said. Well have all the files available at our fingertips, just by touch of the computer as opposed to having numerous [paper] files. 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter Week of Sunday, May 25-31, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

How about a garden with not only beautiful flowers but colorful butter flies? That was the subject of a recent program at the Fort White Branch Library, where Master Gardeners Judy Futch and Helen Whitley pre sented techniques for attracting but terflies to a home garden. “Making a garden attractive to butterflies isn’t difficult,” said Futch, who worked for many years with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences before becoming a Master Gardener volunteer with the Columbia County Extension office. “The mistake most people new to butterfly gar dening make is thinking only of the adult butterflies. To have butterflies stay in your garden, you have to think about their needs during their life cycle. Do that, and you’ll have plenty of butterflies.” Futch and Whitley explained that to attract and keep butterflies, four things are needed: food, water, plac es for the butterflies to bask in the sun, and places where they can take shelter from storms and predators. “Food for butterflies means flowers that provide nectar for the adults, but it also means having plants that the caterpillars can eat,” Futch said. “Many native wildflow ers and weeds are food sources for the caterpillars and can fit into a gar den designed around native species that resist drought and heat.” Both Futch and Whitley advised that gardeners should concentrate on just a few butterfly species, preferably ones native to the area. “You can find places that will supply butterflies to raise, but species from South Florida won’t survive here. It gets too cold,” warned Whitley. “Also, the caterpillars of many but terfly species have specific needs. For instance, monarch butterflies will only lay their eggs on milk weeds because those are the only plants their caterpillars will eat.” Several guide books provide infor mation about suitable plantings for attracting and maintaining butterfly populations. Futch’s favorite is Jaret Daniels’ book “Your Florida Guide to Butterfly Gardening: A Guide for the Deep South.” Other titles include Craig Huegel’s “Butterfly Gardening with Florida’s Native Plants” and “Florida Butterfly Gardening” by Marc C. Minno and Maria Minno. Books not imme diately available on the shelves at any of the Columbia County Public Library’s locations can be reserved if in their collections or requested through InterLibrary Loan if not. With suitable food plants on hand, butterflies’ other needs are simple to meet. Water sources need to have places where butterflies can perch while drinking. A few flat-sur faced rocks or sections of log in sunny spots make suitable places for butterflies to bask. Shelter can con sist of an undisturbed patch of tall grass, nearby shrubs and trees, or even a tarp draped over a few logs standing on end. For those desiring a more decorative touch, some gar dening supply stores sell butterfly houses ranging from simple designs to beautifully carved and painted works of art. Butterflies also appre ciate attractants such as pieces of melon, papaya, or citrus left where they can get to them. Butterflies do more than add an extra dimension of beauty to a garden; they also help maintain the local ecology by pollinating flow ers and serving as food for other wildlife. In addition, they are both “umbrella species” (creatures that, when protected, help to preserve other living things as well) and “indicator species” (creatures whose presence or absence serves as a marker of an ecosystem’s health). In fact, about the only draw back to maintaining a butterfly garden is having to tolerate some untidiness. “You can’t expect plants that are feeding caterpillars to look picture-pretty,” Futch said mat ter-of-factly, holding up a well-nibbled spray of leaves as evidence. “But they will grow back, so don’t use insecticides on them or mow them. Just let nature take its course, and you’ll be well rewarded.” E l Potro, across from Lake City Mall, has a new look of fresh orange and green paint. Its colorful appearance puts a smile on your face before you even walk in the door. Usually Irma Carillo, wife of Manager Jorge Carillo, is waiting with her smile and greetings to welcome you when you arrive. By the way, there is a small, painted brown horse statue outside the front door and we had always wondered why it was there. Jorge told us that “el potro” means colt in Spanish. Light bulb moment and we learned a new Spanish word. Jorge Carillo was trained at El Potro in Savannah, Ga. and opened this restaurant, No. 19, in 1985. Originally from the Pacific Coastal city of Mazatlan, Mexico, he grew up several neighborhoods away from Irma but they never met as children. They eventually met on one of Jorge’s family visits and he later married Irma and brought her back to TASTE BUDDIES Genie Normanand Mary Kay HollingsworthTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comSouth of the border TASTE continued on 4DB ugs are creepy, crawly little nuisances that are of little interest unless they are bothering you.

Explore the site for topics such as the Joys of Insect Eating, Just for Fun bug club, the Book of Insect Records, a coloring book and a photo gal lery of Florida’s most amazing “good, bad and bugly” bugs. If you are a Florida Gator, you might enjoy getting to know “Orange and Blue” bugs. Some of them are not critters that you want to invite to your home, however. The tent caterpillar is all decked out in Gator colors, but this is one insect we don’t really want hanging around and eating our trees. Another orange and blue insect is a sharpshooter, a kind of leafhopper that is good at jumping and flying. This partic ular sharpshooter is responsible for transmitting the bacteria that causes Pierces disease, the disease that keeps Floridians from growing the most desir able European wine grapes.

W hen I turned the calendar page over to May 1 and glanced through the month, I realized there are many holidays and cele brations in May. Do you remember May Day poles and dancing around the Maypole with colorful rib bons? I wonder if children do that anymore. Cinco de Mayo, while a relatively small holiday in Mexico, has become an important day in the United States where the Mexican culture is celebrated with parades, dances, and food. Of course, Mother’s Day is a traditional holiday in May and falls on the sec ond Sunday. But, what are some other lesser known May celebrations? Mother Goose Day is always May 1 and encour ages children to keep reading and learning Mother Goose rhymes and stories. The term Mother Goose dates back to the 1650s but there isn’t any one particular person who was Mother Goose. Stories were written before and after the term started to be used, and include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty, all of which you will find at the library. Children’s Book Week celebrates the joy of chil dren reading every May. Why not bring your child or grandchild to one of the library’s weekly story times to get them started on the joyful road to life long reading? For days and times, call 386-758-2101. Each month has its rath er silly observances, too. Socks are celebrated twice in May! “No Socks Day,” always celebrated on May 8, is the day to leave socks behind and be sock free. “Lost Sock Memorial Day” is always May 9, when we are supposed to remember those socks we have lost in the laundry. But, never throw the surviv ing socks out because you never know when the lost socks just might reappear. Parents, did you know that May 10 is always Clean Up Your Room Day? How about National Chocolate Chip Day on May 15? Take a break and observe No Dirty Dishes Day on May 18 and just let them pile up in the sink that day. If you are interested in learning about the origins of holidays, the library has “Holidays, Festivals, and Celebrations of the World” dictionary, detailing nearly 2,500 observances from all 50 states and more than 100 nations. The library has hun dreds of books on the many aspects of holidays and for all ages. You can search our online catalog under the subject of Holidays to find more specific titles.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I have a very hard time expressing my condolences. I panic and avoid sadness at all costs. I’ll give you two examples: My boss’s hus band died. (I worked for him, too.) Because I couldn’t talk to her, I avoided her like she had the plague. Another time, a close friend’s son tried to commit suicide and severely injured himself. Instead of hugging my friend’s wife and asking how she was, I waved and went on like I was late for something. I’m ashamed of my behavior. How can I stop myself from acting like this? — EMBARRASSED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR EMBARRASSED: One way would be to ask your self WHY you’re afraid of con fronting someone’s sadness. Is it fear that doing so will bring you to tears, and you want to avoid the emotion? Because you are feeling shame, I don’t think it is lack of empathy. Being prepared in advance may help you reach out when a condolence is needed. All you have to say is, “I’m sorry for your loss,” or, “I’m sorry about what you’re going through.” Please stop beating your self up about this. Many people don’t know what to say, or blurt out something inappropriate because they’re uncomfortable with their own feelings. DEAR ABBY: I work in a small bakery. We have a very nice baker here who is an older gentleman. When he gets frustrated, he will shout out, “Son-of-a-rabbit-chaser!” We all laugh and have asked him what that saying actually means. He told us his father used to say it. Now the entire bakery is trying to guess what this say ing’s true meaning and origin is. Can you help us out? — DYING TO KNOW DEAR DYING TO KNOW: According to my dictionary of American slang, when someone starts an exclamation with “son-of-a,” it is usually to express “anger, annoyance, amazement or dis appointment.” The animals that usually chase rabbits are dogs. Your baker may have grown up hearing his father use the expression because back then gentlemen weren’t supposed to say “SOB” in front of ladies or impressionable children because it was considered too crude for tender ears. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can get ahead if you discuss your ideas with colleagues, your boss or someone with clout. Presenting what you have to offer succinctly will lead to success. Keep your plans simple, realistic and affordable. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotions will be difficult to control. Take your time, relax and don’t let things get to you. Preparation and organization will be your best bet, along with ignor ing anyone making complaints. A thoughtless remark handled wise ly can give you an edge. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of personal, financial, legal or medical matters. Take a no-nonsense approach and deal with everyone directly. Avoid excess, overspending and overdo ing. Don’t feel you have to pay for others or make a donation. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): What you offer others will bring high returns. Setting high standards will encourage those around you to follow suit. You will have an influence when it comes to community and social reform if you speak up. You can make a difference. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t make promises you cannot keep. Decipher what will bring you the highest return and head in that direction. Form a working relationship with someone who can deal with the small details you don’t have time for. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Taking on too much will lead to confusion. Realizing that you must satisfy your needs first will put you at ease and point you in the right direction. A confident attitude will help you persuade others to see things your way. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Personal business should take top priority. Don’t put things off or you will come across as being wishy-washy. Your suggestions executed with assurance will be the determining factor to the outcome of what happens next regarding your reputation, status and domestic situation. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look for new possibilities. Someone or something unusual that grabs your attention will lead to an exciting revelation. A prop osition looks interesting and can lead to a change in the way you live. Consider new possibilities and keep an open mind. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Hard work will be required if you expect a return. Ask for help if it will make the difference between finishing a job and falling short. Be reluctant to pay for something too quickly. Make sure the work or product is satisfactory first. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may need to make a point, but arguing will not be the way to convince others to do things your way. Work quietly behind the scenes, and once you feel satisfied with the results, everything else will fall into place. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Problems getting along with your peers will set you back and can lead to unexpected changes in the way you earn your living. Fix up your surroundings to bet ter suit your needs. A home-based business looks promising. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let someone with charisma and big ideas lead you astray. Your insight into legal, medical or financial matters will help you make the best choice for yourself. Have the confidence to follow your instincts and avoid meddling or interference. ++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Loss for words of sympathy is embarassing for woman Q Write Dear Abby at www.

Insects can be interest ing for a number of rea sons, besides knowing how they can harm or frighten us. The giant leopard moth is elegantly patterned with many tiny black circles and dots over a snow white background. She could grace the pages of a fashion maga zine. On the other hand, the giant swallowtail butter fly begins its life as a cater pillar that resembles bird droppings. Many of us have kids who should win first place picky-eater awards. But a little bug, the jadera, prob ably has them all beat in that category. This bright red and black insect feeds only on the mature BB-sized seeds of the golden rain tree. As an early spring bloomer, this lovely orna mental tree begins to drop ripe seed pods by mid-sum mer. That’s when hoards of jadera bugs show up to feast on the small seeds. Only there and only then. The Bug Week UF site not only has entertaining and enlightening infor mation about all kinds of insects, but it has informa tion that can be very useful in our lives. We can find helpful research-based arti cles on seasonal and health related issues such as tick removal, termite swarms, bedbugs and mosquito control. Lake City even though she barely spoke or understood English. She quickly learned and got her GED and then attended Florida Gateway College for her CNA. Her plan is to continue her stud ies to become an RN. They have a son, Jorge, who works with his parents and at the Gondolier restaurant. Two daughters, Irene and Ashley, are both still in school but they help out occasionally, too. Genie met these two when she volunteered at Westside and they are wonderful young ladies. It’s a family that works together to make the family business successful and one for you to enjoy when you visit. A buffet is offered every day at lunch ($8.99) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and at dinner on Fridays and Saturdays ($10.99) from 5–9 p.m. Don’t hesitate to ask a server if you want to know what a buffet item is. If you are in a hurry at lunchtime this would be the perfect restau rant to visit. You’ll find about 45 items to choose from. If you order from the menu, it is large, and no doubt you will find what you want plus many items that you may not know any thing about. Each item has a description to help you decipher the choices. There is one menu page of “Make your own combination,” e.g. rice & beans plus two entres ($8.89), rice & beans plus three entres ($9.89), rice & beans plus four entres ($12.89). Choices of entres for the combos are taco, soft taco, chalupa, chile relleno, nacho cheese tost ada, quesadilla, tostaquac, tostada, burrito, chimichan ga, enchalada and tamale. Genie’s favorites from this group are the cheese enchi lada served with a delicious enchilada sauce and the tost ada — a flat crispy corn torti lla topped with beef, lettuce, cheese and tomatoes. The Mexican rice served with the combos is homemade, seasoned just right and delicious. The refried beans are smooth and hot like they were just made especially for you and not like they might have been sitting around for hours like some restaurants serve. The lunch menu has numerous meals from $5.99 for a burrito stuffed with beef and topped with Mexican salad to $8.49 for fajita strips of marinated chicken breast or steak strips cooked with their spe cial recipe, green peppers, onions and tomatoes served with rice and refried beans, Mexican salad and three flour tortillas ($1.00 extra for steak). The menu specialties are many. The Carne Asada a la Caribena ($13.69) is one of our favorites. It is palomilla steak, rice, black beans, plan tains (maduros), fried yucca and avocado slice with fresh lime to spritz on top. Genie lived in Miami seven years and this is a reminder of some of the won derful Cuban food she loved there. The El Potro Special (for $13.99) is a chalupa, tamale, taco, chili relleno, enchilada, rice and beans. That should satisfy anyone’s hankering for Mexican food. The most expensive dish on the menu is the Fajitas El Potro $17.99 single, $27.99 for two. This includes ribs, shrimp, steak, chicken and Mexican sausage with rice, beans and Mexican salad. Good luck with this one. Seafood dishes are mostly made with shrimp or talapia but there is one interesting item that we aren’t brave enough to try. It’s seafood soup ($14.99). Shrimp, fish fillet, octopus with rice and flour tortillas. Genie has had two experiences with octopus and doesn’t want a third. A la Diablo ($12.99) is shrimp cooked with their own very hot chipotle sauce served with rice, Mexican salad and flour tortillas. To be honest, we have to admit that we have never tried one of the desserts. We’ve just never saved room. Irma says the most popular is the Fried Ice Cream ($3.98): vanilla ice cream with a crispy, deli cately-fried coating, lightly topped with honey, straw berry, cinnamon sugar, cherry and crowned with whipped cream. There is also Sopapilla, Banana Chimichanga, Churros, Flan and Chimiflan ($3.99), which is a deep-fried flour tortilla filled with Mexican caramel custard (Flan), topped with cinnamon sugar, showered with butterscotch and combined with a bowl of ice cream. This one just might have Taste Buddies written on it. Jorge says the most pop ular menu item is the beef quesadillas followed by the Enchilada Supremas ($9.99) which is one chicken, one beef, one bean and one cheese enchilada topped with enchilada sauce and Mexican salad. The third most popular item is the Burro Grande ($10.99) a one-inch flour tortilla stuffed with steak or chicken faji tas, beans, rice, sour cream topped with pico de gallo, lime and jalapeo. Guess we need to talk about the important “stuff” — the margaritas. You can order Sauza tequila margaritas by the glass (12 oz) for $4.29, Big Margarita (24 oz) for $6.29, Monster Margarita (32 oz) for $9.99 or a large pitcher for $16.99. If you prefer the Jose Cuervo tequila you will pay more. Wines available are Rose, Chablis, White Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Homemade Sangria. There are choices of Mexican Beer: Corona Extra, Corona Light, Dos Equis (XX), Dos Equis XX) Lager, Negra Modelo, Tecate, Modelo Especial and Micheladas plus the usual domestic beers. Draft beers are Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra and Dos Equis. Tequila by the shot and daiquiris are available too. El Potro can seat 155 customers. The back room seats 50 and can be reserved for large groups. We recently had a surprise birthday party for John Norman’s mom and the back room offered privacy and easy access to the buffet. Everybody loved being in our own room. The staff is happy to provide plates and forks for your own bought cake. Kimberlynne, Lashel and John all celebrated their birthdays here too. It has become sort of the Norman family tradition. Often when you visit you will find that room filled with travelers on their way from Houston to Miami. El Potro is a regular daily bus stop and the staff keeps the buffet hot, fresh and filled, ready for hungry travelers and Lake City folks. El Potro offers a wide variety of Mexican dishes that are sure to please most diners. The owners, the wait resses and waiters are pleas ant and helpful but most of all they are patient while you decide what new thing you are going to try each visit. Often it’s so hard to decide we just give up and order the buffet so we can then have a taste of lots of dishes. El Potro is located at 2470 W. US Hwy 90. The telephone number is 386-758-3100.
