Next step: Graduation.For the 2014 Fort White High School senior class, the next step is now. The 2014 Fort White High School commencement exercise will take place at 7 p.m. Friday at the Fort White High School Arrowhead Stadium. Gates for the ceremony will open at 5:30 p.m. “There are no parking require ments,” said Keith Couey, Fort White High School principal. “We’re going to open all the gates. We have handicapped spaces next to the stadium.” There is a 50 percent chance of afternoon thunderstorms Friday afternoon and Couey said if there is inclement weather, they will wait until skies clear to continue with the ceremony. “I like to wait it out because usually it doesn’t last more than an hour,” Couey said. Fort White High School has 130 graduation candidates. “That’s a little higher amount than we had last year,” Couey said. ‘We average 125 -145 graduates.” The commencement will not have a keynote speaker, but there will be addresses given by class valedictorian Leslie Ammerman and class salutatorian Andrew Kluess. The ceremony is expected to last 60 90 minutes. Couey said he thinks the Fort White High School Class of 2014 will be remembered for their ded ication to the school. “They’re a close-knit group,” he said. “They’ve done a lot of great things for Fort White. They’ve been tight since I got here.” He said the boys in the senior class will be remembered for basketball, football and baseball Live Oak resident Henry ‘Hammerin’ Hank’ Hodek, 90, started his first job in the mid-1930s. He said he and his wife Nelda are a package deal and must be photographed together. Arnereanna Bryant grad uated from Columbia High School on Friday, but she has been working since she was a sophomore. ‘There’s some thing about hav ing your own money and not having to ask other people for stuff,’ she said. SUMMER JOBS THEN & NOW By MEGAN REEVES | mreeves@lakecityreporter.com A long with freedom and sunshine this summer, students will be looking for one more thing come Tuesday: a job. / The last day of school brings the need for sum mer jobs for teens. Not only can these jobs provide independence, confidence and money, they can also teach lessons that will long be remembered. / Locals from Columbia and surrounding coun ties were asked to reflect on their first jobs and the effect they had on their lives. Henry Hodek It was the mid-1930s when 90-year-old Live Oak resident Henry “Hammerin’ Hank” Hodek took his first job. He was living in Orlando at the time and helped a lady take care of a friend’s property by doing miscellaneous yard work and upkeep. “She never had any chil dren, so I guess in a way I became her son,” he said. “I was just a little kid trying to make some money, and she paid me a whole dollar a day.” Hodek said he knew exactly what he would be saving for when he started the job. “As soon as I got $5, I would ride my bicycle down to the airport and blow it on a ride in an airplane,” Hodek said. “I was always interested in flying.” He said airplanes were “just the thing back then” because they were such a novelty. “As a little kid growing up in that time, it was just one of my desires,” he said. Hodek graduated high school the same year as Pearl Harbor. He wanted to join the U.S. Army Air Corps, but his mother thought it was too dan gerous. “She said ‘Son, why don’t you join the Marines?’” he said. “Little did my mother know, if I would’ve followed her advice, I might not be standing here.” Hodek did join the U.S. Army Air Corps, which later became the U.S. Air Force. He flew P-47 Thunderbolt fighter jets in Europe in WWII and 24-year-old Valerie Irving start ed working at Arby’s in Lake City when she was 16. “I learned a lot of responsibility,” she said. JOBS continued on 6A BELOW: Melanie Gay worked her first job at Mike’s IGA in Jasper while waiting to leave for col lege. She said the hardest part was learning to save her money. You can only get so much discipline and structure at school, but when you walk into the real world where you’re working and you’re getting a paycheck, that’s totally different. — Valerie Irving Julia Baggett, pictured here with husband Donald, started work ing at J.C. Penny Co. in Lake City in 1960. She started out making just 50 cents an hour, until she got a raise to 99 cents. Recent Columbia High School grad uate Alvin Key, 17, is hoping to join the local work force soon. He plans to work and earn money while deciding what career path he wants to pursue at a university. Honestly, I need the money. — Alvin Key Photos by MEGAN REEVES / Lake City Reporter From wire and staff reports TALLAHASSEE— Gov. Rick Scott, who has increased efforts to appeal to military voters as he seeks re-elec tion, wants to sue the federal gov ernment for block ing state inspec tors from Veterans Administration hospitals. The state Agency for Health Care Administration, at Scott’s urging, said Wednesday it will file a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs seeking to allow state inspectors access to Florida-based VA hospitals so they can determine if the health care needs of veter ans are being met. While no legal action has been taken, AHCA Scott plans to sue for hospital access AHCA was turned away from Lake City, other VA’s. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com “The show must go on.”At Florida Gateway College the phase took on new meaning after Owen Wingate, the FGC choral profes sor, choir director and direc tor of the school’s musical productions and plays, was badly hurt May 8 while making repairs to his home. “Owen was at his house doing some repair work on up on a ladder, fell off the ladder and suffered some fairly serious injuries, including a skull fracture,” said Troy Roberts, Florida Gateway College public information coordinator. Wingate was taken to a Gainesville hospital for treatment and put into a medically induced coma. He was in the medically induced coma for nearly two weeks and recently awakened. “Owen suffered a severe brain injury,” Roberts said, relaying comments from Wingate’s family. “He is slowly improving and they are working to get him off the ventilator. Hopefully, he will transition to a reha bilitation facility within the next week or two. He will need a lot of therapy to regain strength and func tion. We appreciate the prayers and support from the community.” In the past few years Wingate, who was hired at the college in 1997, has directed the summer musi cal productions. The most recent was “Fiddler on the Roof” last year. This year’s production will be “The Music Man.” “It’s the largest cast we’ve ever had,” Roberts said. “We have 65 people that are involved this year from Lake City, Live Oak, Macclenny and Union County. It’s not just stu dents that’s involved, it’s a community production.” “The Music Man” is set for June 19, 20 and 21 at the Levy Performing Arts Director injured,but showto go on at FGC Owen Wingate suffered head injuries in fall.

Floridas 3rd District Court of Appeal ruled 2-1 that former agent John Connolly was improperly convicted and sentenced to 40 years for his role in the 1982 slaying of World Jai-Alai President John Callahan. But further appeals are possible, so Connolly, 73, remains in prison for now. A hit man testified in the 2008 trial that he fatally shot Callahan after Connolly tipped Bulger and his lieutenant, Stephen The Rifleman Flemmi, that the executive would implicate them in another death. The appeals court initially upheld Connollys conviction in 2011 without comment but overturned it after Connollys lawyer asked for reconsideration. In the courts new ruling, a panel of judges determined that Connollys second-degree murder conviction was barred by the statute of limitations applicable at the time. His attorneys argued that prosecutors improperly used a firearms allegation to enhance the charge to one potentially punishable by life in prison for which the statute of limitations would not apply. Judge Leslie B. Rothenberg dissented, contending the majority was making grave error in overturning the conviction.Justice Clarence Thomas asked to block evidence TALLAHASSEE United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is being asked to stop a Florida judge from hearing evidence obtained from a Republican political consulting firm. The Florida Supreme Court ruled Tuesday the evidence could be used by groups suing the Legislature over new political maps. But the court also said that the evidence must not be disclosed in open court. The groups suing legislators planned to present the evidence Thursday. But lawyers representing Gainesvillebased Data Targeting and its employees on Wednesday asked Thomas for an emergency stay. Thomas handles emergency applications from Florida. In court papers, lawyers for the company and its employees say that the action is needed to prevent disclosure of privileged information during the trial. Data Targetings lawyers are being paid by the Republican Party of Florida.Identical twins offer up selves for space science CAPE CANAVERAL When astronaut Scott Kelly embarks on a one-year space station stint next spring, his twin brother will be offering more than his moral support. Retired astronaut Mark Kelly will be joining in from Earth, undergoing medical testing before, during and after his brothers American-record-setting flight. Its part of an unprecedented study of identical twins, courtesy of the Kellys and NASA. Researchers hope to better understand the effects of prolonged weightlessness by comparing the space twin with the ground twin. The Earthbound Kelly draws the line, though, at mimicking his brothers extreme exercise in orbit or eating crappy space station food. Its not bad when youre in space, Mark said. But he wont be carrying around a can of Russian lamb and potatoes when Im out to eat with my friends. This is the genetic double, mind you, of the 50-year-old astronaut who has volunteered to spend an entire year aboard the International Space Station beginning next March, along with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko, 54, a former paratrooper. No American has come close to a year; seven months is NASAs max for a single human mission. The Russians, on the other hand, are old hands at long-duration spaceflight, claiming title to a record-setting 14-month mission back in 1994-95. Scripture of the Day Destiny is a feeling you have that you know something about yourself nobody else does. The picture you have in your own mind of what youre about will come true.

Mary Kay Hollingsworth, a spokeswoman for the federal agency, said it would be inappropriate for us to speculate on the specifics of Floridas litigation until it is filed. State inspectors have been trying for more than a month to gain access to the federal facilities to conduct a review of allegations of inappropriate scheduling and treatment that have been reported at VA facilities nationwide. AHCA inspectors were turned away from the Lake City VA Medical Center on April 14. The governors request follows his call May 21 for Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign as investigations are ongoing into the treatment of veterans, and the potential cover-up of delayed care, at 26 health clinics nationwide, including the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville. To date, Secretary Shinseki has refused to step down, our inspectors continue to be turned away, and none of the information weve asked for has been provided, Scott said in a prepared statement Wednesday. Transparency and accountability are critical to supporting our veterans, and this suit will fight the federal VAs continued practice of stonewalling our inspectors. Calls for Shinseki to resign were heightened Wednesday after the federal agencys Office of Inspector General released a preliminary report indicating that delayed medical care, along with efforts to hide records, was systemic throughout the veterans health system. According to AHCA, state staff members were denied access to Malcom Randall on May 19. Also, between April 3 and April 14 they were blocked from access to medical clinics in Gainesville, Miami, Tampa, St. Petersburg and West Palm Beach as well as Lake City. A spokesman for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist said Scott has failed to help an estimated 41,000 veterans in Florida by declining to expand access to health care through the federal Affordable Care Act. Its unfortunate that Rick Scott may be attempting to inject politics (through calling for a lawsuit against the VA) into a tragic situation, Crist spokesman Kevin Cate said Wednesday. Crist accused Scott of using the VA issue as a political tool last week. The Republican Party of Florida has responded that Crist is the one exploiting the issue, noting that the former governor included a link to his political campaign and a fundraising page when tweeting his own message that Shinseki should resign. The state currently is home to 1.5 million veterans, with nearly a third from the Vietnam era and 231,000 having served in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, according to the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs. Scott, who served in the Navy, turned his attention to the veterans hospital issue on April 1, a day after signing the Florida GI Bill, a wide-ranging measure modeled after the federal World War II-era program.By EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comA Suwannee County man was arrested for aggravated battery, criminal mischief, DUI with property damage and careless driving after hitting a bouncer with his car and then trying to leave the scene while dragging another vehicle behind his Tuesday night, according to police. Jody Tyrone Sullivan, 40, of 4153 SE CR 500, Branford, was escorted out of Club Rodeo by a bouncer around 10:30 p.m. after a verbal altercation inside the bar, according to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Sullivan then got in his 1999 Honda Accord and allegedly hit the bouncer with his car. The car collided with a Nissan Titan, causing damage to the right rear. Sullivan then tried to flee the scene while dragging the Titan the report said. When Lake City Police arrived, Sullivan was trying to exit his vehicle through the sunroof. Sullivan was unable to respond with complete sentences, had extremely slurred speech, was unable to identify himself and smelled strongly of alcohol, according to LCPD. Field sobriety exercises were not done because of a high risk of injury due to falling, the report said. Sullivans breath sample registered a .209 and .191 blood alcohol level, more than 2.5 times the legal limit, according to police. Sullivan was charged with DUI with property damage and careless driving by Lake City police and aggravated battery and criminal mischief by the Columbia County Sheriffs Office.Man charged with aggravated battery, DUI Sullivan HOSPITALContinued From 1A Center.

Roberts said the cast has been upbeat after learning Wingate is recuperating and several people have volunteered to help with the production in Wingates absence. The cast has responded well, he said, noting the lead actor from last years production has stepped up to help direct the production. Obviously, theyre concerned about Owen and his condition. Its tough anytime you lose someone who is that important to a production. Owen is the one who comes up with the idea for what musical theyre doing that year. There have been people from the college who have stepped in to be our liaisons with the production, offering their time to go over there on a nightly basis during rehearsals to make sure we have representation from FGC and do everything they can to make sure the production continues. A Facebook page, Prayers for Owen Wingate, was set up May 15 and already has 300-plus likes. WINGATEContinued From 1A district championships all in the same year.

The property was intended to be traded for money or drugs, according to arrest reports. The group planned on burning down the residence to destroy evidence of their presence, as well as stealing an R.V. and taking it to Mayo, according to statements made to sheriffs office. BURGLARYContinued From 1A By JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Less than three months after ruling that part of a controversial 2003 medical-malpractice law was unconstitutional, the Florida Supreme Court is ready to take up another dispute about limits on damages in malpractice cases. Justices next week will hear arguments in a Miami-Dade County case that centers on a woman, Kimberly Ann Miles, who suffered complications in early 2003 after what she said was an unnecessary surgery on her leg. A jury awarded the woman and her husband $1.5 million in pain-and-suffering damages, but lower courts reduced that amount to $500,000 because of limits in the medical-malpractice law, which was passed later in 2003. The Supreme Court is faced with deciding whether damage limits should apply to injuries suffered before the law took effect --a concept known as retroactivity. Miles and her husband, Jody Haynes, filed the lawsuit against physician Daniel Weingrad in January 2006, nearly three years after the injury. Attorneys for Miles wrote in court documents that applying the limits retroactively violates constitutional due-process rights. But attorneys for the doctor contend that the Legislature included the possibility of retroactivity in the 2003 law because it was dealing with a medical-malpractice crisis that, in part, had driven up physicians insurance costs. It is clear that the Legislature weighed the depth of the medical malpractice crisis against any potential unfairness or due process concerns that would be implicated by the application of the caps, Weingrads attorneys wrote in a brief. In doing so, it only applied the caps to plaintiffs who had not yet served notices of intent and thus could not have conceivably had any tangible expectations of a particular award for non-economic damages.Malpractice caps face another test in court

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com P resident Obama and Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki say they are “mad as hell” about the appalling bureaucratic delays and cover-ups at veterans clinics around the country. And well they should be, as should every American. But the nation and its veterans deserve answers and solutions, not just shared outrage. The backlog of veterans awaiting treatment and processing of claims — a staggering 344,000 — pre-dates the Obama administration and is the result of the United States fighting two wars simultaneously in Afghanistan and Iraq. Indeed, then-Sen. Barack Obama acknowledged the problem in October 2007 when he told a town hall meeting in Iowa, “When 400,000 vet-erans are stuck on a waiting list for claims, we need a new sense of urgency.” Furthermore, The Washington Times reported Monday that Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting. Yet, more than five years into his presidency, the situation persists, only now with the added scandal of V A clinics allegedly falsifying records to obscure the del ays. It began with a VA facility in Phoenix, where as ma ny as 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months t o see a doctor. At least 40 died awaiting treatment. The clinic allegedly kept a secret list of wait times and fals ified documents so as not to attract Washington’s attenti on. That would be outrageous if it were an isolated incident, which sadly it wasn’t. VA employees at an outpatient clinic in Fort Collins, Colo., also allegedly falsified appointment records to hide the fact that as many as 6,300 veterans had waited months for treat-ment. Similar situations occurred in Wyoming and in San Antonio and Austin, Texas. Interminable waits may have contributed to veterans deaths at other clinics nationwide. Shinseki, who has headed the VA since the beginning of Obama’s first term, last week testified blood-lessly and cluelessly about the scandal before a Senate committee, acting as if the buck got lost in the mail instead of landing squarely on his desk. He inspired no confidence that he is capable of fixing this mess. But replacing him would be a cosmetic move if the adminis-tration is not prepared to untangle the VA bureaucracy, and Congress isn’t willing to appropriate more money to veterans’ health care. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that funding might have to increase as much as 75 per-cent — to $85 billion in 2020 — to treat all veterans. Meanwhile, when health care is in short supply it becomes rationed. Thus, you see veterans forced to wait an average of 160 days for the VA to process their claims, and appealing a decision through the agency red tape can take an astounding 1,598 days. There’s plenty of evidence, too, that the bureau ha s mismanaged the money it has, wasting millions on un necessary buildings instead of spending it on the men and women who have served their country and are sufferi ng. The federal government across two administrations has failed to uphold its end of the bargain it made with those who serve in uniform: You make the sacri-fice, and we’ll take care of you. The nation’s veterans deserve better. They need that urgency.Nation fails to honor deal with veterans Q Panama City News HeraldA threat to the free flow of information S en. John McCain, R-Ariz., has proposed an urgent, sensible solution to the scandalous crisis of treatment delays at Veterans Affairs hospitals – and it should finally, belatedly, become official policy. At a time when U.S. military veterans are languishing, and even dying, while being forced to wait for weeks just to see a doctor, McCain’s proposal to allow veterans to treat-ment at any non-VA hospital – with the VA paying the bill – is attract-ing bipartisan support in Congress because it is simply common sense. Then again, you won’t be surprised to know the proposal also seemed urgent and sensible to me when I first proposed it in a 2008 book chronicling what seemed to be chronic problems at the VA. After detailing sad stories of vet-erans who died after they could not obtain prompt treatment at a VA hospital, I wrote the VA should issue to each veteran a “Vet-med card” that would serve veterans’ medical needs just as a Medicare card serves senior citizens’ needs. Veterans who couldn’t get prompt treatment at a VA hospital could go to another hospital, perhaps one nearer their homes, and be treated – with the VA paying the bill. (I also urged the VA to adopt a more flexible approach so that its hospitals, which are highly rated for treatment of those wounded in war, might not need to duplicate costly cardiac and cancer care readily available at other nearby institu-tions.) But, as you may have noticed, Washington did not exactly rush to adopt any of those ideas. Now this: In a May 23 Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, McCain wrote, “Veterans have earned the right to choose where and when they get their medical care, and it is our responsibility to afford them this option.” He said two fellow Republicans, Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, have joined him in authoring a bill to “give far greater flexibility to veterans to get the care they need and deserve, where and when they want it, whether in the VA system or not.” In the House, Veterans Committee Chair Jeff Miller, R-Fla., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have backed the idea, too. “We can’t have another backlog of people waiting for per-mission to go to a federally quali-fied clinic in a region,” the former House speaker told reporters last week. What has changed to ignite this urgency that was missing-in-action for years in which the VA’s sad his-tory of disservice to veterans has been so painfully documented? Part of it has been recent disclosures that VA whistleblowers have said that at the Phoenix VA hospital and many others officials had been using secret double lists to conceal from their VA bosses and the pub-lic the fact that veterans were not being treated within the 14-day limit mandated by VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s department. And part of it surely is that the latest demands for reforms have been led by Republicans who used the VA crisis as a new reason to attack President Obama’s job per-formance. Yes, McCain did just that. And in previous years of documented VA incompetence, Democrats didn’t rush with similar zeal to blast President George W. Bush or demand the firing of his VA secre-taries. Not even when VA Secretary Jim Nicholson, a former Republican National Committee chairman, pooh-poohed a 2006 report that 40 percent of veterans who needed individual counseling for post-traumatic stress were forced into group sessions instead, by insisting: “We’re dealing with it with great excellence.” Indeed, veterans might be better off today, if Democrats had been more combative on this back then. Interestingly, it turns out the latest VA scandal of secret double waiting lists isn’t really new. Back in 2012, the Government Accountability Office issued a report that surfaced the scandal-ous VA conduct but was all but overlooked by the news media – indeed even congressional watch-dogs didn’t bark. Perhaps that was because the true outrage was obscured by the GAO’s govern-ment-speak (which we will merci-fully omit). But tucked into it was a brief disclosure: “... For example, three schedulers changed the desired date based on appointment availability; this would have resulted in a reported wait time that was shorter than the patient actually experienced.” And that, we now know, turned out to be the VA’s secret recipe for cooking the books.Sensible solution to VA woes isn’t new at allT he beauty of the Internet is that it accumulates once-unimaginable stores of information and makes them accessible instantly from anywhere with the click of a mouse. But if you believe the European Court of Justice, that’s not a feature; it’s a bug. The court recently upheld what is known as “the right to be forgot-ten.” If you do something you would rather people didn’t know about, the World Wide Web is not your friend. It retains such items permanently, allowing search engines to find them. The court says that needs to change. After a certain amount of time has passed, it decided, people should be able to lock unwelcome incidents away. The verdict came in a suit by a Spanish lawyer who wanted to sup-press a 1998 legal notice that his house was being repossessed to pay his debts. He has since gotten his financial affairs in order and resented that the information kept popping up on Google and other search engines. He went to court and won. Though the evidence will remain online, search engines will be required to sever the links that allow users to find it. This policy may sound like a potential blessing to anyone who’s ever been involved in anything mor-tifying and public, or anyone who’s ever posted a tweet or a photo only to regret it. But the decision has ominous implications for those who value unrestricted access to valu-able knowledge. You may not want the world to know you got arrested on a minor charge in your youth. But you might like to be able to learn everything possible about the prospective suitor who seems too good to be true. The trade-off we all make for infinite information is less ability to protect secrets, and on net, it’s clearly a beneficial deal. That’s why Internet users sign up for entertaining sites that suck up large quantities of per-sonal data for marketing purposes. The impact of a permanent record that you can’t escape may seem greater now than it will be in the future. If everything people do is retained forever, people are likely to place less importance on minor misconduct than they did when such episodes tended to fade away. More knowledge will breed more forgiveness. Not only that, but if many people feel an urgent need to suppress evi-dence of their past mistakes, they are not defenseless. Internet tools already offer ways to fight back. Michael Fertik, founder of Reputation.com, told MarketWatch that anyone who’s worried can manipulate search results to lessen the risk: “Claim your Google real estate now. Create videos and blogs in your name and create your own URL with your first and last name. Post photos of yourself on your site and tag with your name.” No doubt other entrepreneurs are brainstorm-ing creative ways to make unwel-come information less visible. That’s a better way to address the problem than a government-imposed censorship regime. In the Internet age, information wants to be free. As a rule, it’s best to let it.

completed 83 combat missions. I came back unscathed. A lot of fellas didnt make it, and I always ask myself why them and not me, he said. I had a divine providence looking over me. Hodek said he must credit some of his pursuits in the Army Air Corps to his lawncare days. It taught me the value of work, he said. Hodek said his friends gave him the nickname Hammerin Hank because he once stopped builders from working on his home so that he could do it himself. I figured a nuthead like me could do it just as well as those nutheads could, he said. Whether its working on a lawn, building a house or flying fighter aircrafts, Henry Hammerin Hank Hodek said he knows the secret: If youre going to do anything, do it good.Valerie IrvingValerie Irving said at 16, the world already had a lot for her. Learning to balance living in a single-parent home, attending high school and having her daughter Takara were all made easier when she got her first job at Arbys in Lake City. I got the job on a Tuesday, she said. I remember because I applied Friday and when they called me back the next week I was so excited. Irvings mother Valentine Jackson was excited, too. My mom was a single parent at the time, so any extra money helped, Irving said. I felt like a big kid because here I was helping mama out. Irving said she remembers her mother jokingly celebrating that she wouldnt have to give her gas money anymore. Irving said her favorite part about working was being independent and on her own. I could be like See yall later, Im going to work, she said. Or, Mom, I gotta sleep, I have a job. Im a working woman now. She was proud of myself, and that felt good, Irving said. She said the responsibility she learned working at Arbys is invaluable. You can only get so much discipline and structure at school, but when you walk into the real world where youre working and youre getting a paycheck, thats totally different, she said. Totally, totally different. Irving said her daughter Takera is now seven going on 45. My mom was always supportive about me having my baby. She never told me to get out or that she didnt want to be around me or that she was mad at me, she said. She helped me with my child, but also made it clear that she was my child and therefore my responsibility. Even though Takera is only seven, she already has a job at a friends dry cleaning business. Her responsibility is to sweep the floors and clean out the driers. If you instill hard work in children from the beginning its not as hard later when its business time for real, she said. Irving said she could not be more thankful for the opportunities and lessons her first job gave her. I had to learn to work my schedule between my daughter and my school, and my first job at Arbys did that for me, she said.Julia BaggettJulia Baggetts first job was at J.C. Penny Co. in 1960, where she was paid 50 cents an hour. I liked their shoes, and they had the layaway program back then, she said. It was good because 50 cents, and even when I got my raise up to 99 cents, wasnt very much. Baggetts husband and high school sweetheart Donald Baggett agreed with her that she probably spent her first paycheck on shoes. She got a discount, he said.Melanie GayMelanie Gay said the hardest thing about her first job was learning to save. She worked at a family-owned grocery store called Mikes IGA in Jasper for $4.35 an hour. She graduated class of 1992 and was waiting to go to college. It certainly taught me the value of a dollar, she said. It taught me to go to school, get an education and get a job that would be substantial. Gay said her first paycheck went toward car insurance and gas, but after that it took her a while to learn to save her money. That part came towards the end, she said. But I saved just enough so that I would have spending money and not have to work when I got to college.CHS graduates Recent Columbia High School graduate Arnereanna Bryant, 18, has been working for over two years and just started a new job at Payless in the Lake City Mall. She said this is her favorite job so far because it allows her to physically help people. Theres something about having your own money and not having to ask other people for stuff, she said. It gives you something to do and helps you stay out of trouble. Alvin Key, another member of the Columbia High School class of 2014 is also joining the workforce. Honestly, I need money, he said. Key plans on moving out of his mothers house to work and go to Florida Junior College until he decides what he wants to major in at a university. He said is applying everywhere until he finds a job. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 (with coupon)30% OFF PAINTS & STAINS MAY 29JUNE 16 **NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.

The centerfielder’s season is over, but she feels that she has progressed on the field. Much of her improvement has been between the ears according to the Lake City native. “Mental game, for sure, has been the biggest differ-ence” Pilkington said. “In high school I never had a plan at the plate I just went up there swinging. Since I got to South, I’ve developed an approach. As a lead off, I know exactly what I need to do and the pitches that I need to swing at to get the job done. I’ve read a lot of books on the mental side of the game and improving in that aspect has definitely improved my game.” South Alabama beat some of the nation’s top teams this season includ-ing LSU, but weren’t able to advance to the Women’s College World Series. But falling short of the WCWS didn’t bring Pilkington’s spirits down. She is, after all, living her dream. “As a player I’m most proud of being able to play the game,” Pilkington said. “I get up every morning living my dream. Ever since I was little I wanted to play college softball and compete at a high level. I dreamt of playing against the big teams. Not only are we competing with them but we are winning. We played for the conference champi-onship and it was probably one of the most fun atmo-spheres I have ever played in. There’s no better feeling to me than working hard with my teammates beside me and then getting to step on the field and compete. This is the best time of my life and I’m just working hard and enjoying it.” This year Pilkington was a constant in the starting lineup, which was a goal of hers after missing some games as a freshman. “For me, coming back from last year to not start-ing every game to earn-ing the lead-off slot in the lineup and being able to play centerfield (was my biggest accomplishment),” Pilkington said. “I made a few minor adjustments in my swing and really bought into what (the coaches taught me) and it’s worked in my favor.” Pilkington was named first-team all conference and also won the Sun-Belt Conference Player of the Week. With all the accolades, Pilkington still believes nothing can compare to coming home. “I miss my family and their cooking,” Pilkington said. “I miss going to the river all the time and having free time to enjoy the outdoors.” And it was Lake City that helped Pilkington get to this level. “Lake City helped me to get to where I am by teach-ing me the life lessons I need to succeed and meet-ing the people that instilled those traits in me,” she said. “I don’t ever try to take anything for granted especially softball because I know that one day it will come to an end and I will have to hang my cleats up (I try not to think about that day). My dad always taught me to work hard, hustle and to respect your coaches. I definitely wouldn’t be the player I am if it wasn’t for the coaches I was blessed enough to play for. Rick Bicknell, Jimmy Williams, Mitch Shoup, Greg Sund, Paul Silverman, Kevin Fagan and now Becky Clark and her staff I can honestly look back and say that I’ve played for the best coaches in the county.” COURTESYLake City native Stephanie Pilkington lays out to make a play for South Alabama University last season.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: “Holding on in Arkansas” (Feb. 27) asked where to go for free counseling. You suggested she call her local mental health department for counseling options for her marriage and money issues. Another resource would be her local church. Pastors often offer coun seling to couples. Many churches also have sup port groups for parents to connect with each other. I have seen churches save marriages and get couples back on the right track emotionally and financially. — PASSING IT ON DEAR PASSING IT ON: Your suggestion was mentioned by a number of other readers. They, too, felt that solving her finan cial problems would lessen or eliminate the marital discord “Holding” and her husband are experiencing. Read on: DEAR ABBY: One of the largest contributors to our national charitable network -United Way -offers many helpful services. The Consumer Credit Counseling Service may also be a resource, if credit cards are part of the problem. If there is a choice between paying a bill or buying groceries, the bill should come first. There are many food pantries. The family can also apply for food stamps. Asking for help can be difficult or embarrassing, but knowing your kids won’t be hungry makes it worth it. — BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, TOO DEAR ABBY: “Holding” should contact her bank about refinancing her mort gage. If she can’t pay her electric bill, she should see if she qualifies for a reduced rate for her income level. As for the kids, if they’re in school, they probably meet the criteria for the reduced-cost lunch program. — FULL OF IDEAS DEAR ABBY: “Holding” should seek help from the school counselor. He/she can recommend mental health support within the family’s financial means, and con nect them with additional community resources to lessen some of the stress es of daily life. With many families struggling in many ways, encouraging this woman to seek out available help is crucial. — SCHOOL COUNSELORDEAR ABBY: If the woman’s county doesn’t have a mental health department, her region should have a depart ment of public health. Or she could be guided by the school nurse at her children’s school. School nurses are often the first responders to families in crisis or in need of counseling. — NEW ENGLAND NURSE DEAR ABBY: It is human nature to want the best for one’s family, but a lot of the couples suffering this kind of stress have brought it on themselves. There won’t be enough money for food and month ly bills if they are paying for new cars, a house they can’t afford, ordering takeout instead of cooking, subscribing to the deluxe cable TV package, going on expensive vacations and paying for activities the kids “have to do” just because their friends are. Couples’ financial prob lems could be greatly improved if they would only make better choices. -LIVING WITHIN MY MEANS DOWN SOUTH HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your interests will lean toward learning about different cultures, philoso phies and people who grab your attention. Personal changes will make you feel good about who you are and where you are heading. A commitment will bring favorable results. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Question your current position and the direction in which you are headed. Take a detour or make minor adjustments to your lifestyle. Focus on making life better by reducing the levels of negativity in your life. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take on a challenge that will get you moving physically and stimulated mentally. Participate in functions, events or activ ities that will allow you to show off what you have to offer. Raise the standard and strive to reach your goals. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take on a project that will improve the environ ment you live in or make your life more comfort able. You don’t have to spend a lot; it’s the little things that will make you happy. Love is highlighted. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Help is on the way. Position yourself well and you will be ready to step into the spotlight and take advantage of a situation that has the potential to bring beneficial results. Partnerships will add energy and enthusiasm to whatever you pursue. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Proceed with caution. Not everyone will have your best interests at heart. Do your research and question the motives of anyone who is pushy or persuasive. Listen to your heart, but rely on your intelligence to lead you in the right direction. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Try to be open to suggestions and willing to learn new things. You may not welcome a change that’s being made initially, but once you ease into new possibilities, you will real ize how much better off you are. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your dedication and fortitude will enhance your reputation and help you bring about the changes that will benefit your com munity and environment. Recognizing the value in what others have to offer will enable you to forge ahead successfully. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The tables can turn quickly if you are cog nizant of how others feel. Listen and observe and you will avoid an awkward situation by dealing with it before it spins out of con trol. Fix up your home to suit your needs. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your work ethic will be noticed and help you get ahead. Share your thoughts and ideas and you will open doors that lead to a bright future. Caution while traveling will be necessary to avoid a minor mishap or delay. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Doing something social or getting involved in community events will lead to interesting con versations and favorable changes at home and to your everyday routine. Get involved in something that allows you to use your talents. Romance is in the stars. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone you thought was reliable is likely to dis appoint you. Carry on with your plans regardless of who backs out. Emotional deception must be han dled wisely. Stand up for your rights and make the changes necessary to avoid being taking for granted. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Couple feeling financial strain receives several helpful ideas Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 Gators want to avoid FCS opponents By MARK LONG Associated Press DESTIN Florida coach Will Muschamp wants to avoid playing teams from the Football Championship Subdivision. And not because the Gators lost to lower-divi sion Georgia Southern last year. Speaking at the Southeastern Conferences annual spring meetings, Muschamp said he would prefer a 12-game schedule that features eight league teams, in-state rival Florida State and three more teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision. Were probably going to move forward without playing FCS opponents, Muschamp said, noting that his reasoning primarily has to do with getting his team in the best position to make the college football playoff that begins next season. And I think our fan base wants to see better oppo nents, he added. Muschamps boss and several other SEC coaches, though, dont seem ready to close the door on lowerdivision teams. I understand what Wills saying, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said. In a perfect world, you play all D-I schools. But also you have to have 12 opponents. The topic was one of many addressed during the open ing day of the SEC meet ings, where talk focused on conference autonomy, potential rules changes and an early signing period for college football. The meetings were the first chance for many coach es to weigh in on schedul ing. The SEC decided last month to stick with its cur rent format of eight league games and a permanent non-division rival. The one change will affect nonconference sched uling. Starting in 2016, all SEC teams will be required to play at least one game against a team from one of the other Big Five confer ences the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Pac12 and Big 12. That tweak shouldnt affect many programs. SEC schools routinely play at least one team from those conferences every season. Mississippi, Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt do not play nonconference games against teams in the Big Five. Only Arkansas, Texas A&M and Kentucky did not play a nonconference game against a Big Five team last year. So several of those non conference games come against FCS teams. In fact, all 14 SEC teams play at least one lower-division team in 2014. And commis sioner Mike Slive called it an institutional decision, adding that he has no plans to dictate scheduling. At this point, I believe its best for us to continue doing that, Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze said. I just find it hard to believe that one game like that ... over the totality of the sea son would really hinder you if you perform well in those other games. Georgia Southern shocked Florida 26-20 in Gainesville last season, a humbling loss that guaran teed the Gators their first losing season since 1979. And few have forgotten Appalachian States stunner at Michigan in 2007. I know were trying to stay away from them if phys ically possible, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. But I think they have their place, especially if theyre a regional game. It gives an FCS (opponent) a chance to play what used to be a BCS team. I think that has a lot of merit. I was in the Big Ten when the Appalachian State thing happened and I think that makes college football pret ty cool. Alabama coach Nick Saban said scheduling FCS teams might not be avoid able. Florida plays lower-divi sion Eastern Kentucky on Nov. 22, but doesnt have another FCS team on any schedule beyond 2014. Of course, that could change. If not, it could be a rarity for the power league. We try not to do it now, but sometimes its all that we have left to schedule so we can get 12 games, Saban said. Its not by choice that we want to do it. The first people that need to be taken into consideration here, who get no consideration, are the fans and the people who sup port the program.
