By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comThe fate of a Vietnam War-era Navy fighter jet that sits on the northbound side of Interstate 75 in Lake City has been decided -the plane will stay right where it is. In May, the county was considering returning or moving the decommissioned A-7E Corsair II because of trouble accessing the land the plane sits on. That kept the county from doing necessary maintenance such as cleaning and painting it. Retired Circuit Judge Vernon Douglas, a member of the Lake City Air Show, was instrumental in bringing the plane to Lake City. The county obtained the aircraft in 1988 as a way to promote the air show and struck a deal with then-landowner Ray Sessions to keep the plane on his property alongside I-75. But in October 2013, Ray Sessions passed away, and his son, Austin Sessions, took control of the land. County Manager Dale Williams said trouble accessing the land began soon after, and county officials discussed giving the plane back to the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Penscola, from where its on loan. When Douglas heard that about three weeks ago, he took matters into his own hands to make sure the plane would stay right where it is. He drafted a perpetual easement, which gives the county continued access to the land, he said. Douglas will be in charge of maintenance, and the county and Austin Sessions have both signed off on the agreement. In a couple phone calls, we had the problem solved, Douglas said.

No end in sight, area residents fear.By EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comNeighborhood residents arent the only ones frustrated with a sidewalk construction project that has dragged on for seven months along McFarlane Avenue and Grandview Street. So is the Florida Department of Transportation. According to FDOT records, the job was supposed to have been completed by May 29. As of May 30, the contractor, Core Construction of Jacksonville, has been fined $966 per day by FDOT. The fines will continue until the work is completed. In addition, FDOT has issued 15 deficiency letters to Core for problems with construction during the project. Deficiency letters are issued to contractors for continual performance concerns and issues and blatant violations or non-compliances, according to the agencys website. One or two such letters isnt all that rare, but 15 is unheard of, said Bubba Norton, owner of CurbWorx, a Lake City-based subcontractor on the project.A messSummers Elementary kindergarten teacher Keryn Breeden says the construction has been a major headache for her family and the neighborhood.

By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comBishop Road will be restricted to local traffic only for approximately one month starting Monday, according to Columbia County Public Works Director Kevin Kirby. The partial closure will span from Columbia City Elementary to King Road. There will be access to homes, but no through traffic, Kirby said. We will notify the public when we complete the clearing operation. Kirby said that the reason for the restriction is to clear a right-of-way before paving. We are in the beginning processes of converting a dirt grated road into a paved section of infrastructure, he said. It will be a brand new paved road eventually, but the first step is to obtain a 60-foot rightof-way. Once the organic material is removed, construction will be continued under full traffic, according to Kirby. Message boards will be placed along the roadway Monday to notify the public of these changes. Lake City Emergency Management Services and the Lake City Fire Department have been notified, Kirby said.Bishop Road will be closed to through traffic as of Monday Fighter jet will stay put along I-75In a couple phone calls, we had the problem solved. Retired Judge Vernon DouglasDriving back from work one day in March, she was shocked to discover the driveway of her home of four years 1221 SW McFarlane Ave. had been dug up. A month later the neighboring road, Summerbreeze Place, was closed. Now she has to take a side road to get home. Its frustrating, Breeden said. I dont think theres anything we can do to make them speed up. George Upshaw was also forced to take an alternate route to his home located at 829 Summerbreeze Place. Its been a struggle getting his truck and trailer through narrow back roads. Upshaw didnt see a need for a sidewalk when one is on the other side of the street.

SIDEWALK continued on 8ABy SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County schools made big gains in fifth-grade science and eighth-grade math, and showed more modest progress nearly across the board, according to results of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test released Friday. Im pleased that weve held our own and improved in a number of areas with the major changes in instructional delivery throughout the district, said Supt. Terry Huddleston. The changes involve new lesson plan formulation and, more importantly, he said, mini-assessments to determine subject-matter mastery. Students needing help are given attention in small groups or one-onone with tutors. County schools remain below the state average in a number of areas. However, Huddleston said this years gains make him optimistic about the future. I fully believe we are poised to show some dramatic improvement next year, he said.ReadingThe tenth-grade passing rate in reading rose by four points over 2013, to 50 percent this year districtwide. The statewide passing rate is 55 percent. The passing rate in ninth-grade reading remained at 49 percent, unchanged from 2013, but still below the statewide average of 53 percent. Eighth-grade scores fell from 49 to 48 percent. The state passing rate is 57 percent. The passing rate in seventh-grade reading rose three points over 2013, to 56 percent this year, just under the statewide passing rate of 57 percent. Sixth grade reading remained at 61 percent this year, one point above the state average. Fourthand fifth-grade passing rates improved as well -by one point each. Fourth-grade scores rose to 61 percent, equal to the state average, and fifth-grade scores went up to 62 percent, one point above the state average.

Jaylen, who was diagnosed in January 2013 and is now in remission, was guided through the scenarios by a professional actress in the role of policewom an Shadow and accompanied by his 13-year-old brother, Daishawn, as sidekick Falcon Boy. Teacher fired after giving kids booze FORT PIERCE A middle school teacher accused of giving her student a taste of whiskey has been fired. Twenty-seven-year-old Jessica Aljure of Port St. Lucie was arrested Thursday on charges of giving alcohol to a minor. The school superintendent says Aljure was a new teacher at Forest Grove Middle School. Police say the teacher offered a 14-year-old student a ride home after the girl missed her bus. Aljure allegedly made a stop at a liquor store and allowed the stu dent to have some of her whiskey. The girls parents alerted police after she appeared drunk at home. Aljure is free on bond.

Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan was critical ly injured Saturday after a tractor-trailer rammed into his chauffeured limousine bus, setting off a chain-reaction crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that left one person dead, authorities said. The former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock cast member was travel ing with six others and returning from a standup comedy show in Delaware when the limo bus overturned near Cranbury Township at about 1 a.m., state police Sgt. 1st Class Greg Williams said. James McNair, 62, of Peekskill, New York, a passenger in the limo bus, died in the crash, Williams said. Morgan and two other passengers, Ardie Fuqua Jr. and Jeffrey Millea, were in critical condition at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital, hospital spokesman Peter Haigney said. A fifth passenger, Harris Stanton, was treated there and released, Haigney said. Morgans publicist said the comedi ans loved ones have joined him at the hospital, where he remains in the inten sive care unit. His family is now with him and he is receiving excellent care, spokesman Lewis Kay said in a statement. We dont anticipate much of a change in his condition today but will provide a further update once more information becomes available. Williams said the tractor-trailer driv er apparently failed to notice slow traf fic ahead and swerved at the last min ute in a vain attempt to avoid hitting the limo bus. But it smashed into the back of the limo, prompting a chain-re action crash that also involved a second tractor-trailer, an SUV and two cars. Morgan performed comedy standup Friday night at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware. His scheduled appearance at the Fillmore Charlotte in North Carolina on Saturday night has been canceled. Judge: Casey Kasems daughter in charge PORT ORCHARD A Washington state judge on Friday said Casey Kasems daughter, not her stepmother, is in charge of the medical care for the 82-year-old radio personality, who remains in critical condition with an infected bedsore. However, all members of Kasems family can visit him at the hospital just not at the same time, Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Jennifer Forbes ruled. Kasem has been receiving intravenous antibiotics and other care at St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington, for a serious pressure ulcer he had when he was admitted on Sunday, according to a hospital statement. Hospital spokesman Scott Thompson said Friday he would make no com ment beyond the statement that was issued Thursday. Right now, Casey Kasems health is declining and (he) wont be with us much longer, daughter Kerri Kasems spokesman, Danny Deraney, said. I want to be there for my dad, Kerri Kasem said outside court Friday, KOMO-TV reported. All of us. So if he does happen to open his eyes and look up, his entire family is there. The former radio show host is suf fering from a form of dementia called Lewy Body Disease, according to court records. His daughter said she is considering putting her father in hospice care at St. Anthony, the Kitsap Sun reported. Kasem gained fame with his radio music countdown shows, American Top 40 and Caseys Top 40. He also was the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon Scooby Doo. Wife Jean Kasem has been in control of her husbands medical care and has controlled access to him as his children from an earlier marriage contested who should make those decisions.

You turn man to destruction, And say, Return, O children of men. For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it is past, and like a watch in the night.

A 5-foot wide concrete sidewalk will be built along both sides of County Road 137 from U.S. 90 to just south of Eighth Avenue. In addition, a crosswalk will be constructed for pedestrians crossing at County Road 10A. Some of the driveways that the sidewalk will pass will have to be temporarily closed so crews can place the concrete for the sidewalk. However, residents will be contacted in advance of the work. The Florida Department of Transportation will oversee the project and hired R.E. Arnold Construction, Inc. of Archer to build the sidewalk at a cost of $261,800. The project is combined with sidewalk construction in Levy and Gilchrist counties and should be completed later this year. For more information on this project, please contact FDOT at 800-749-2967, ext. 7830.Wellborn sidewalk construction to begin on Monday Photos by EMILY STANTON/Lake City ReporterEnjoying breakfast with Chief GilmoreLake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore addressed about 50 residents at the second quarter Breakfast with the Chief event at Parkview Baptist Church Saturday morning.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCounty officials have secured the final piece of property needed to complete the Bascom Norris Connector Road project and the Real Terrace extension project by paying the remaining balance of $1.8 million for 2.3 acres of property in a court-mediated agreement. During Thursdays county commission meeting, county officials agreed to deposit $1,897,500 into an account for property that was condemned so the county could obtain it for the Bascom Norris Connector Road Project at Real Road, as well as for the extension of Real Terrace. The $1.8 million was sanctioned in a court-mediated settlement agreement with Richard C. Cole and Janice C. Bates, as the trustees of the Overflow Land Trust. The county condemned and took the right of way from the Overflow Land Trust, said Dale Williams, county manager. That created a legal process. Through the legal process an agreement was reached on the value of the property. The agreement was forwarded to the court, the court agreed with the contract and then the county had to pay the funds. Last night we just moved the money to an account where the bill could be paid, Williams said. The legal process ended in court May 16 and the county had to pay the $1.8 million sum within 30 days. The total settlement was $2.3 million and the county had previously made a $403,000 deposit. The Overflow Land Trust is now required to execute a trustees deed for the acreage the county is acquiring for Real Road. There are no more land/rightof-way acquisitions proposed for Bascom Norris, Williams said. The purchase of the property also includes land that will be used for the right-of-way necessary for the Real Terrace extension project. The Real Terrace extension is the road between the Red Lobster and Applebees restaurants off US 90 west. Real Terrace will be extended and connected to Bascom Norris. Theyll soon be working on that, Williams said. They are currently engineering it. Thats a project were doing in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation. The Bascom Norris connector road project is expected to be completed by late summer. Im being told, barring any more inclement weather, that we would hope to have it complete by the end of August, Williams said.Balance paid; Bascom Norris land secured County hopes to complete project by end of August.
I f the Obama administration expected a feel-good palate cleanser with the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the last U.S. hostage in Afghanistan, reality has proved to be a cold slap that reveals a glaring disconnect between the presidents inner circle and the American military he commands. From the presidents public embrace of Bergdahls parents to Susan Rices assertion that he served with honor and distinction, the optics have mystified those who knew the back story to Bergdahls capture in 2009. Honor and distinction arent throwaway words to people in uni-form. They mean something. Barack Obama and his team were prepared for criticism of the 5-for-1 swap that freed a handful of top Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay. Their resonant argument was that the U.S. had a responsibility to leave no soldier behind. Yet Obama and Rice, his national security adviser, also knew the cir-cumstances leading to Bergdahls capture were anything but clear. If his own written word is to be believed, he had grown disillusioned with the Army and war effort. Men in his unit said he liter-ally put down his rifle and walked away. Finding him became a top priority for U.S. forces, including his unit and teams of special operators. All risked their lives amid increasing enemy fire to rescue him, and as many as eight are said to have died trying. Much of this was detailed by the late Michael Hastings in Rolling Stone magazine in June 2012 and substantiated by a subsequent mili-tary investigation. Further details have spilled into public view this week. Soldiers once bound by non-disclosure agreements asked why a deserter rated heros treatment when those killed or wounded look-ing for him were ignored. Why a soldier twice promoted undeserv-edly, who placed fellow Americans at greater risk, should collect back pay and go about his life. What these soldiers demand is that the military not sweep this aside amid the closing notes of a long war. It must follow through and investigate, with fresh eyes; if Bergdahl is found guilty of a crime, he must face consequences. We could not agree more.There is no greater affront to the military ethos than leaving ones post and endangering fellow sol-diers. This is why desertion during wartime is a military crime punish-able by death. Unlike the more common absent without leave, or AWOL, desertion requires proving intent to not return; so far, we dont know Bergdahls side, beyond his email home. He deserves both a presumption of innocence and a chance to be heard. And so, too, do the U.S. soldiers now speaking out. They cannot be dismissed as political enemies. Many put their lives on the line to search for Bergdahl; others risked danger to capture the five Taliban commanders swapped for Bergdahl. Others, of course, never made it home. Their families deserve answers and, finally, the straight story, too.

Rick Scott for frit-tering away nearly $400,000 in taxpayer dol-lars on legal fees to defend drug-testing laws. We dont think that is an excessive amount to spend fighting the scourge of drugs, but the courts have made clear this is a losing battle. Its time the governor changed tactics. The governor and lawmakers in 2011 adopted measures requiring all welfare applicants to be tested for drugs and also requiring state workers to be drug tested. The goals were simple and laudatory: to curtail drug use and ensure tax dollars are not spent on drugs. Given that private employers routinely require workers to undergo drug tests, the provisions hardly seem oppressive. But the courts have consistently disagreed. The U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, a conserva-tive-leaning court, found that a blanket drug-test requirement for state employees violated their right to privacy, though it allowed that the tests could be appropriate for certain jobs. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the states appeal. The 11th Circuit also found mandatory drug testing of welfare applicants was an unreasonable search and violated the Fourth Amendment. Later, a federal judge also ruled against the welfare requirement, say-ing there is no set of circumstances under which the warrantless, suspicionless drug testing at issue in this case could be constitutionally applied. The governor continues to defend the requirements. Just last week his spokesman, John Tupps, emailed The Huffington Post: Governor Scott will continue to fight for Florida taxpayers, who deserve a drug-free state workforce, and for Floridas children, who deserve to live in drug-free homes. We admire Scotts motives, but it seems obvious that he will not prevail. The superior course would be to revise the requirements to make them constitu-tional. This can be done by requiring the tests when there is cause to suspect drug use. After all, the 11th Circuit did find that the state could require the drug testing of state workers with-out cause if safety was a factor. So testing should be possible for law enforcement officials, heavy equip-ment operators and such. The courts determination, coupled with a policy of testing people for cause, would strengthen the states workplace safeguards. Similarly, adopting a suspicion-based screening process for welfare applicants, as Utah and Tennessee have, would be constitutional and would still guard against tax dollars going to drug users. The possibil-ity of drug tests surely would discourage drug abus-ers or those with a history of drug-related crimes from seeking public assistance. Such policies might not go as far as the governor wants, but they would advance the drug fight without constitutional pitfalls or additional legal fees.Revise, dont drop, drugtesting fight Q Tampa Tribune I f it werent for The Wall Street Journal, we might never know that 47 percent of the shoppers at Dollar Tree earn $25,000 or less a year while a secretive inves-tor known as The Unicorn in Back Bay Boston makes billions of dol-lars. At first glance there may seem to be no connection. In fact, there is no connection whatsoever. It is the glory of the Journals money and investing section that these two items were placed next to each other on the same page. One story notes that dollar stores are in heated competition with each other and may be cutting prices below 99 cents. The other touts a hedge fund manager named David Abrams who started a one-man cash machine that manages $8 billion and himself has a billion dol-lars. Is there anything more we need to know about the economy? Doesnt that say it all? There are so many poor people in need of cheap plastic items that Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar General and others are fighting tooth and nail for their patronage. Meanwhile, a 53-year-old who has never spoken at an event open to the public is getting so wealthy the Journal is stunned and eager to find out more. How did a history major triple the returns of the S&P 500 in 15 years and how is it that a jazz fan owns part of the Oakland Raiders? This column will mention the 1 percent only in passing because they know who they are and we apparently dont. But as we get clos-er to the crucial, all-important, vital mid-term elections in November, income inequality is going to smite us in the face every day. The desperate Democrats, who live in mortal dread of losing control of the Senate, are hoping to give up daily updates on the unfair society we live in. Certainly, we have become aware of the plight of fast food workers who earn an industry average of $9 an hour and no longer can feed and shelter their families without food stamps and other forms of govern-ment aid. Democrats hope to capi-talize on the fight of food workers for a living wage. But there are other aspects of the income inequality debate that havent gotten as much attention. It is not true that Americans are as bad off as they were in the 1920 when robber barons controlled most of the wealth. Millions of Americans today have cars, televi-sions, smartphones and Internet access. The elderly have Social Security, as do the disabled. Even the poorest Americans have 50 percent more after-tax, inflation-adjusted income than they did in 1979. As economist/journalist Robert Samuelson notes, We have not reverted to the 1920s. But we feel worse off than we used to feel, before we began paying huge cell phone and cable TV bills, before we assumed we would have meat on the table every night, before our cars were air condi-tioned, our children needed after-school care and a short stay in the hospital cost thousands of dollars. Is it right that the top 1 percent have 13 percent of after-tax income? Of course not. Is that something an election can change? Not a chance. Is it realistic to think government will take away the wealth of the rich? Nope. But here is where we need a serious, legitimate debate. What can and what should government do to create a better climate for jobs? Privatize Social Security? Give the rich more tax incentives? Deregulate big business? Let big oil and gas and coal companies destroy the environment for short-term gains? Gut food stamp programs? Reduce the numbers of people who qualify for Medicaid and cut fund-ing? Rightly or wrongly, too many people think that this bleak scenar-io is what Republicans now stand for, when they are not denouncing President Barack Obama. Unless they provide new ideas, it may be that we will have another meaningless election that solves nothing and simply reinforces the polarization of our nation. It may well be that David Abrams and Dollar Tree have nothing in common.Dollar Tree shoppers vs. billionaire investors Q Dallas Morning News Military owes it to its own to answer Bergdahl questions Ann McFeattersamcfeatters@nationalpress.com Q McClatchey News Service columnist Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.4AOPINION

By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterFORT WHITE The Fort White FFA program has just added another award to its long history of honors. On May 26, the Florida FFA Association announced that the Fort White middle school and high school FFA chapters will be among 37 Florida FFA chapters designated as Premier Chapters. The award, which recognizes superior achievement in agricultural education and the ideals and goals of the FFA, will be officially presented at the second General Session of the 86th Florida FFA Convention and Expo at the Caribe Royale Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando on July 2. During the same session, the Fort White middle and high school chapters will also be recognized as two of 30 Florida FFA chapters designated as Floridas Finest. Based on completion of the National Chapter Award program application and demonstrated excellence in the areas of student, chapter, and community development, these chapters have earned the right to represent Florida at the national level in the National Chapter Award program. Another award that will be announced at the state convention will be based on results from the Nutrients for Life competition. To be eligible for this award, FFA chapters across the state created hands-on programs designed to educate and engage the community in plant nutrition, fertilizer use, soil science, and crop-related agricultural issues. While final results will not be announced until the convention, Fort White has been named one of the three finalists for the third year in a row. The final order of finish will be announced during the sixth General Session of the convention on Thursday, July 3. Im very proud of our students, said Fort White agricultural technology instructor Wayne Oelfke. We had about 110 students involved in the Nutrients for Life project, and I wish we could recognize all of them individually. As for the chapter awards, Jill Huesman deserves a tremendous amount of credit. As the senior FFA sponsor, shes the one who filled out all the paperwork for the awards and made sure that our chapter met all of the requirements in community service, career development, and participation in FFA projects during the year. Without her making the effort to be sure our students hard work is recognized, we wouldnt be getting these honors. Individual students from the Fort White FFA program will have their chance to shine at the state convention as well. During the Agriscience Fair portion of the convention, students Taylor Miller and Taylor Gebo will be making a presentation based on the Nutrients for Life project in which they were participants. If they win the state competition, they will be able to apply for the chance to make their presentation at the National FFA Convention, which will take place October 29-November 1 in Louisville, Kentucky. Fort Whites FFA program also has two students who have been selected as finalists in the 2014 Proficiency Awards Program, which recognizes exceptional accomplishments and excellence in a Supervised Agricultural Experience program. SAE programs are planned, practical activities conducted outside class time that help students develop and apply agricultural knowledge and skills in a real world environment. Fort Whites honorees and the areas in which they have qualified as finalists are Austin Mattox (Agricultural Processing) and Stephen OQuinn (Specialty Animal Production), both members of the high school chapter. Both will be recognized at the state FFA convention, where the winners in each category will be announced. Should Mattox or OQuinn win, they will also have the opportunity to apply for consideration for national honors. AVALYN HUNTER/ Special to the ReporterJill Huesman, senior sponsor for the Fort White FFA high school and middle school chapters, stands with some of the awards won by the schools FFA program. Huesman will be receiving the Premier Chapter and Floridas Finest awards on Fort Whites behalf.Fort White FFAs named premier Also a finalist for the Nutrients for Life award, to be presented July 2.

This is the last year FCAT will be given. Next year, students will take a new exam aligned with the Common Core standards.Next YearKitty McElhaney, district AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) director, said the district is hiring math and science coaches for elementary, middle and high schools, she said. Professional developments are being made to help teachers teach the standards of the test in enough depth for students to pass. McElhaney said the district is also looking at the schools that do well on FCAT and seeing what they do differently than the schools that dont. You cant turn every thing around in a year, but weve made some prog ress, she said. FCATContinued From 1A Williams said hell tell commissioners at the June 19 county commis sion meeting that they no longer need to look into returning the plane or moving it. As far as Im concerned, weve got an option now that takes care of our big gest problems, he said. It doesnt appear to be an issue anymore. Douglas is pleased the plane is staying and grateful for everything the county put into it since it arrived, so he has no prob lem taking charge of the project, he said. He said hes been doing maintenance on the plane with the help of mem bers of the Cannon Creek Airpark neighborhood, Austin Sessions and others in the air community since the plane came to Lake City. So not much is chang ing, he said. Douglas and Craig Walters, who lives in the Cannon Creek Airpark and has helped a great deal with maintenance of the plane through the years, pressure-washed the plane over the Memorial Day weekend. The countys chief concerns have been addressed, but a few minor problems remain. Williams said he believes the display is still in violation of the coun tys agreement with the military. A sign needs to be placed in front of the plane saying what kind of jet it is and where its from. Williams said he believes the sign also needs to be illuminated at night, but hes not sure. Hes asked his staff to determine exactly what the county needs to do to be in accord with the agreement. Douglas said hell take care of whatever needs to be done. If theres something they want us to bring into compliance, I look forward to doing it, he said. Walters said he hopes the plane stays in Lake City for years to come. I kinda cringed when I heard the county manager thought about getting rid of it, he said. For now, Lake City will continue to be known as the town with the jet, according to Douglas. When you tell people from out of state that you live in Lake City, they ask you where it is, he said. And when you say It has the jet along I-75, they say, Oh, I know where that is. JETContinued From 1A things around here that need to be fixed besides putting another sidewalk in, Upshaw said. If theyre saying that, We need it because of school access, thats crap because theres not that many kids [in the neighborhood]. Both Breeden and Upshaw want construction completed as soon as pos sible. Its a huge eyesore, Breeden said. Theyve made a mess of things. In addition, mail carriers were blocked for a time from getting to residents mailboxes, and residents experienced cable and Internet outages due to construction.Placing blameCore Construction was contracted to build sidewalks for Summers Elementary and Lake City Middle School stu dents as a part of the Safe Routes to School program in July 2013 for $483,500. The company would also improve drainage in the area by installing pipes and topping them with the sidewalk. Construction began December 17, 2013, and was expected to be completed this spring, depending on weather and other unforeseen cir cumstances, according to FDOT. However, construction came to a halt around Easter, and spring came and passed without much progress, neighborhood residents said. Core Construction President Jay Chung claims the project was bogged down by rain in March, which he says caused most of the prob lems on the project. It took us a lot of effort to work around the existing wet conditions, Chung said. FDOT was fully aware of drainage problems already present in the area, but they dont care, Chung said. Chung also cited unco operative subcontractors as a reason for the slow progress but did not elab orate. Norton bristles at that suggestion. We have bent over backwards trying to help them, Norton said. They bit off more than they can chew. Poor judgment and plan ning on Core Constructions part has caused project delays, he said, adding that some jobs had to be redone several times because of poor workmanship or use of incorrect materials. Norton said he has done everything possible to move the project along, even work outside the scope of his contract. Even when theres nothing to do under my SIDEWALKContinued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterLake City resident George Upshaw stands near a creek behind his home that he said has become a major prob lem for him. Parts of his back yard have sunk into the creek, leaving potholes in his yard. They have to get (Summerbreeze Place) back open, he said. The only thing the construction has done was to stop the fly-through traffic. All this does is hinder everybody. They need to do things right the first time.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 9A By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com A rt Joubert said after retiring and hanging around the house for a year, he realized he needed to get out and find something to occupy his time. My wife had so many damn honey-dos, it was like I was on the clock, he said. So I said the hell with this, Im going to get my own job. So thats what I did. Joubert, now 82, moved to Lake City in 1985. He had been living in Massachusetts after retir ing from the U.S. Army when he decided he was ready to move south. He started working at the Union Correctional Institution in Raiford in 1987, and then transferred to the Department of Corrections in Lake Butler. He worked until 1997, when he eventually retired from the prison system. Joubert went to visit his friends in Gainesville who own a photo resto ration company and asked them if they had any extra equipment for sale. He hauled $25,000 worth back to Lake City and decided to set up shop at the Lake City Flea Market, calling his busi ness Arts Photo Transfer and Restoration. The flea market was great, but in the summer it was just so humid in the buildings, Joubert said. It ruined by printers and my paper, so I had to get out of there. He continued to rent out spaces inside local businesses and eventually ended up at the original location of Decotique in historic downtown, which burnt down just two months after he moved out some years back. I really lucked out, Joubert said. All my equipment wouldve been ruined. For the past nine years, he has spent his days continuing to restore peo ples tangible memories just down the road, in Rowands Mini Mall on North Marion Avenue. He uses multiple com puter programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, to touch up and restore old photo graphs. He also sells gift items and souvenirs with photos printed on them. I didnt know what a computer was until I got into this, he said. But practice makes perfect. Thats how I learned, by practicing. Joubert says both the economy and the way of today has made business hard the past two years. The economy isnt good, and its not getting any better, he said. But more than that, people just arent interested. The world today is rushed, as he sees it. Were all in a hurry, and really we arent going any where. Joubert said his work has taught him to deal with people better than he had before. Ive learned that no matter what you do, you cant keep everyone happy, he said. But Ive also learned that I really enjoy this. Joubert said it is his customers facial expres sions that make him love what he does. Seeing the satisfaction on their face when they see the finished product is so rewarding, he said. The majority of my customers are amazed, he said. They tell me they had no idea things like this could even be done. After 16 years of restor ing memories, and the passing of his wife Jane last year, Joubert is finally ready to wind down the business. I dont plan on getting remarried, thats just how I feel about it, he said. Hey, Im retired. I dont need any more honey-dos from any other woman. Joubert said he plans on closing the business within the next few years and moving into the Atrium at Gainesville Retirement Community, to make things easier on himself. I know Im going to miss it when Im done, he said. I have really enjoyed myself.MEET YOUR NEIGHBORArt Joubert: 16 years of photo restoration MEGAN REEVES/ Lake City ReporterArt Joubert flips through a binder full of his photography res toration work. He has been transferring and restoring images for 16 years, having gotten into the business after becoming bored during retirement. contract I just try to help, he said, sometimes moving sod and dirt.The lettersThe deficiency letters, along with 11 warning letters, were issued by FDOT project manager Douglas Cardin, with the first sent March 19 and the most recent sent June 4. In March, six warnings and two deficiency letters were sent to Core Construction. Most were related to erosion and traffic control issues. Torrential rain fall caused dirt and turbid water to escape from the project. Another issue was mail delivery. According to an FDOT warning letter issued March 19, Core Construction has not made the mailboxes on the project available to the mail delivery service and a number of homes in the limits of the project have not received mail at their homes as a result. The mailboxes are no longer obstructed. Two deficiency letters were issued for failing to construct a gravity wall which holds soil to a designated ele vation and failing to address a drop off on the roadway, creating an unsafe condition for the motoring public as well as pedestrian traffic. In April, two warnings and seven deficiency letters were issued. Traffic and erosion issues continued to be a problem. A deficiency letter issued April 9 stated Core Construction has not addressed the debris allowed to flow onto the side street affecting vehicular traffic. Incidents of this nature have been an ongoing problem on the project. Another letter was issued April 17 because the contractor has not replaced the school crossing sign after work had been completed for that area. The failure to warn motorists of the school crossing may endanger students and motorists alike. In May, three warnings and five deficiency letters were issued. Erosion continued to plague the project along with problems submitting documents relating to subcontractors and sched uling. In June, one deficiency letter was sent due to payroll issues involving subcontractors. Payroll for Bestway Concrete for work done on March 25 had not been submitted and a payment for Downstream was not submitted. Norton said CurbWorx has not been paid since April. Once a deficiency letter is issued, chances of the contractor winning another FDOT contract are dimin ished. The final contractors past perfor mance rating (CPPR) will affect the contractors future bidding capacity and prequalification, a DOT spokes person said by email. A deficiency letter reduces the grade by two points in the category it was written. The con tractor has a score of 100 percent at the beginning of the project. Each defi ciency letter will reduce this score. Chung says hes aiming to wrap up construction by the end of June. FDOT said mid-July is a better estimate based on Core Constructions last submitted work progress schedule.

Her red apron reads, Maries Home Canning. Its not even 1 p.m., and shes already sold out of mayhaw jam. McDonald and her sister, Ellinor Wiggins, have been selling their homemade can ning products for 16 years. They never miss the Wellborn Blueberry Festival. The Wellborn Community Association hosted its 21st annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival Saturday. An estimat ed 5,000-6,000 people came out to enjoy blueberry treats, live music, a parade, pancake breakfast and childrens activ ities. McDonald and Wiggins were among the 86 vendors at the festival. The two have strong ties to the celebration. Their mother, Marie, did cooking demon strations at the festival for five years. When she passed 16 years ago, McDonald and her sister took up the canning busi ness. They make their popular spreads from fruit grown on their farm. They participate in the festi val every year because of the strong business they get from it. We have all the favorites peo ple come back for, McDonald said. The Wellborn Community Association also did well this year, selling all of their 125 pies, 70 cobblers and 12 dozen muf fins and raising about $9,000. Profits made from the blue berry festival are used as cap ital for the community, said Wendell Snowden, Festival Chairman and Vice President of the Wellborn Community Association. Community events like the annual Thanksgiving dinner party and Christmas party are funded through the Wellborn Blueberry Festival. This year was a big suc cess, Sharon Geyer, Wellborn Community Association trea surer, said. Everybody came for breakfast. It was wonder ful. Wellborn residents are proud of the festivals success as well. Im pleased to see how many people are out today, said Marilyn Meyers, a Wellborn local. Its awesome. She usually worked at the Waffle House on Highway 90 West on Saturdays, so Meyers was happy to be at the blueber ry festival with her family. Her granddaughter Kallie was happy to be surrounded by furry creatures in the petting zoo. For Snowden, the Wellborn Blueberry Festival is the culmi nation of months of hard work and planning. In the end, its all worth it. It just brings with whole community together, he said.

For his accomplish ment, Underwood has been named the 2013-14 Lake City Reporter Male Athlete of the Year. According to Columbia head coach Brian Allen, its not all just God-given talent, although Allen believes he has plenty of that, but its about the work that Underwood does to perfect his craft. Hard work and deter mination is the key, Allen said. He doesnt rest on what he is blessed with. He works on getting bet ter all the time. That over everything makes him what he is. He doesnt rest, but always tries to perfect. Underwood said what makes him special as an athlete is just as much mental as it is physical. Football, its a lot of film and listening to coach es and the other people around you making you better, Underwood said. Theres a lot of technique. Theres a lot of reps. Its a big help, not only am I get ting strong, but Im getting faster. Itll make me better running through tackles, better than I already do. Because of the combina tion of his power, speed and knowledge of the game, Allen said that Underwood is able to change the complexion of a game in an instant.

Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 3B in 2013 before the Lady Tigers went on to win state in Kvistads junior year. My sophomore year, we had one of the best teams in history, Kvistad said. We kind of all played for ourselves. My junior year we all came together as a team. Unfortunately, the Lady Tigers werent able to repeat, but it was an amaz-ing year for Kvistad either way. The highlight came with a walk-off homer to beat Oakleaf High in the district championship game. This year, when we played Oakleaf, when I got the game winning home run (was my most memora-ble moment), Kvistad said. It just felt good to help my team, I know when we played the first couple of times, it was a close game. I felt that we could have played a little better. Her head coach, Jimmy Williams, would agree with that being one of her most memorable moments. The home run in the district championship game was the most recent memo-ry, but shes had a stellar career, Williams said. Her consistency was something that always impressed me. She had the ability to adjust to whatever pitching we faced. Shes probably one of the only players to have a plan. Shes had a college-level mentality ever since shes been in the program. The college plan started early as her parents helped mold her into the athlete she was at Columbia. The continuous practice my parents put me and my sister through, we play year-round, we play travel ball and that really helps too, Kvistad said. There were continuous practices with my parents. They can pitch just like a pitcher can in a game, and that really helps. This year, Kayli and her sister, Kamdyn, were able to play on the same team for the first time. It means a lot. Me and my sister are really close, Kvistad said. It was cool actually playing together, because we always played in different age groups. Coaching sisters and both of them you could tell they had been brought up respectful of the game, other players and the coaches, Williams said. They have a passion and the part about it is Im so excited that she got to play with her sister for the first time. One of the most mem-orable moments was when they both hit home runs in the same game (against Harmony High). It was like the daily double. Theyll be able to tell their story as long as they live. Kayli said she was grateful to be around Williams as her coach during high school and that he always held the team together. Hes always been a positive person, Kvistad said. He always keeps the team up. Williams said that was always easy to do with Kvistad. The greatest thing that Ive noticed about her is the only stat that shes wor-ried about is if we won or not, Williams said. Ive never once heard her talk about what she did. All she cared about is if the team won and if she gave it her best. Its kind of rare. Most girls are like, I did my part. Shes not that way. Shes a person that would rather see the team win and not worry about stats. And Williams went on to note that she may stand the test of time as the best Columbia will ever have. I dont know if theres anymore Kaylis out there, Williams said. Shes shown a lot of young girls that are just now playing the game that if you put the team first and work hard, youll be rewarded and recognized. I cant say there wont be another one, but there hasnt been one before her. She has the complete mindset of a winner and makes everyone around her a winner. Even if another player comes along and matches her, Kvistad said it will still be important to know that she was a one-time record holder. It means a lot,she said. It shows all the hard work that I put into playing soft-ball. Its something that I can keep and hopefully show my kids one day. While its over at Columbia, Kvistad will play for the Florida Gators next season, and her head coach believes that its the beginning of another great chapter. Shes one I wish was coming back to have the opportunity to do it all again, Williams said. Shes one that youre blessed to have. High school isnt the end for her. Shes going to go on to achieve great things and Im certainly going to miss her. can be a game changer. When you have those type of backs, you can win a lot of games. Underwood changed a lot of games on the score-board in his junior year. The running back scored more than 180 points for the Tigers. Underwood said despite the records and being named athlete of the year, that his mind-set wont change. It feels good to be named, but Ill keep work-ing hard and stay hum-ble, Underwood said. Its something I can look back on and tell my children. I feel good to know that I have a record at Columbia. I know a lot of athletes have come through here and I can be named one of the best. Ill try to break it next year. Allen has no doubt that Underwood will keep pro-gressing. Both of their ulti-mate goals is to be the best that they can be. Hes a competitor, wants to win in everything he does, Allen said. He knows that you have to work hard in order to be good. Hes constantly try-ing to build on what he has and make it better. Thats his mentality in the weight room. Hes not a kid that misses or gets caught up on the hype. Whether its in the weight room or workouts, hes trying to get better and competing against other kids or against his own numbers. Underwood said that Allen and running back coach Quinton Callum have been big impacts on him and will continue to help him have an even big-ger senior campaign. Allen and Callum have helped me, Underwood said. Callum has gotten on to me a lot about the little things. Thats why I dont fumble. Allen, now that hes on the offense, is teaching me new stuff. Its helped me out a lot. (Mitch) Shoup is the one that fed me the rock and was there for me (last season). I want to go for 2,500 yards and 40 touch-downs and win state of course for my senior year. And theres another group of people that have made Underwoods suc-cess a team game. My O-line, all those guys, they have played so hard for me, so I have to play hard for them, Underwood said. It will be easy to argue who the best athlete in 2013-14 was, but according to Allen theres one thing that cant be argued. Number one, his numbers are better than any-body elses, Allen said. People can argue who is the better player. They can argue opinions, but what you cant argue is numbers. Numbers-wise he definitely is deserving. Hes the best thats been at his position here. Hes one of the most hard-work-ing kids Ive had in my short time. Hes as hard of a worker as anyone Ive played with. Those make it a nobrainer that hes deserving of this award. Hes a kid that came in as a freshman and fell right in line with the way things work here. He hasnt missed a beat. Hes one that can be put on tape for the kids that are to come.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-04204BSports utdoors 360 Tarpon chasing A s this years tarpon season kicks off in Florida from the Florida Keys to Boca Grande to Jacksonville Beach and everywhere in between we have limited numbers show up in our channels and flats during the late spring through early fall. Theyre hard to target because we dont have the massive pods moving with the moon phases in and out of deep-water passes, but we do get smaller schools and solo fish along our coasts. My best advice for catching a tarpon in our area is get lucky and have a big setup ready to pitch a big bait. Or, plan a trip from Cedar Key and other bodies of water south where theyre way more predictable, and in much larger numbers. Since 1975, the Florida state record for a tarpon has been a 243-pound fish caught in Key West. Since 2003, the world record has been a 286-pound tarpon caught in Rubane, Guinea-Bissau, Africa. Both of those records may have been broken last season (June 24, 2013) by Capt. Justin Moore and his four anglers. For Moore, chasing tarpon along west central Florida has been a favorite family pastime. Growing up as the son of renowned guide, Scott Moore, fishing for and landing tarpon was a routine summer activity. We caught more than a thousand tarpon together as I was growing up, Justin said. None were as big as that fish. That fish will be one that lives in the memories of all the anglers on board Moores custom-built in Bradenton 24-foot T-Craft by Scott Schulte. Longtime client Drew Denick and Ron Joyce, national account executives of ABC Supply Company, chartered Moore. Joining Denick, Joyce and Moore were Denicks clients from Wisconsin, Jeremy and Jan Tombl. The biggest fish theyve ever caught was a 24-inch walleye, Denick said. They flew down just to tarpon fish, but were nervous going into the Gulf of Mexico because theyve been seasick in the past. The nervousness was quickly put aside, as Moore put them right onto a hot tarpon bite off the Anna Maria Island beaches. The first bait sent a tarpon airborne. That first fish was probably 160 pounds, Denick said, as it was landed after a 30-minute battle. For the next four hours, each angler on board took turns fighting tarpon. Before long, they had landed a 130-pound fish and three 150-pounders, which Moore said has been average for this year. We were all exhausted at that point, ready to go home, Denick said. Our cameras and phones were dead since we were using them so much for pictures. The tired crew was ready to call it a day after a great day of tarpon catching when Moore started the engine and told the anglers to bring in their baits. Jan left his bait out for a second, and then it was hit, said Denick. I didnt see the fish at first, Moore said. I was concentrating on the school trying to get a doubleheader at that point. (Fellow guide) Craig Madsen saw it. He called me and said Thats a huge fish youve got on. As a storm built overhead, Moore tightened the drag down on the 7500 Fin Nor Offshore with 65-pound Power Pro braid to put more pressure on the fish. We were either going to catch it or break it off, he told the anglers. For the next 90 minutes, each angler took turns fighting the tarpon. About 50 feet off the boat I could see this was a huge fish hooked right in the top of the lip. Thats when I told them Were going to land this fish, Moore said. When it got up to the boat we couldnt believe the size of it. Ive seen 200-pound fish before, and this was significantly bigger. Everything was bigger, including scales, eyeball and anal fin. To get measurements, Moore held up a 9-foot custom Crowder fishing rod, seeing the fish was about eight feet from mouth to forked tail. To get the dorsal girth, he had to get a line around the underside of the fish. I couldnt reach that far, he said. For this, he attached a bobber to fishing line and pushed it under the massive girth to the other side. They then cut the line tight and held onto it for safekeeping. I thought the girth was maybe 42 or 43 inches, Moore said. When we measured 53 inches, I couldnt believe it. As the measuring was going on, with all cameras dead, Jeremy pulled out an iPad to record video of the fish at boat side. This shows Moore placing the 9-foot rod up to the monster tarpon before the release. When Moore was back on dry land, he shared the measurements to get a tarpon weight estimate. I thought it was going to be in the 250-pound range. Based on those size estimates, this tarpon would weigh between 310 and 340 pounds, a state and world record. Thats hard even for me to believe, said Moore. To verify a world record would have meant killing the tarpon to be weighed. Doing it all over, the conservation-minded captain would have released the fish without second thought, even if it was a world record. One of the reasons that fish was so big was because of the eggs she was carrying, he said. Most likely she is offshore spawning now, and I feel better about that than any record. Denick, who holds a state record for a 33-pound, 6-ounce skipjack tuna, was completely onboard with letting the tarpon live to see another day. Even knowing it could have been a world record, we would have released it to see another day,Denick said. To me that is the best part of it all.

1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter Week of Sunday, June 8-14, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc. Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org A restaurant with decor from the early 1900s, featuring photos of Lake Citys history on its walls and serv ing homemade meals, isnt your average eatery for the area. However, a restaurant fitting that bill will open soon downtown. The Marion Street Deli and Pub, 281 N. Marion Ave., will soon open its doors in a build ing from days of yesteryear. Jerry Leszkiewicz, architect/engineer, is doing the rehabilitation on the two buildings that will make up the new res taurant. Leszkiewicz said the two buildings were built and opened in 1909 as a pharmacy. Construction crews have left the name of the original pharma cy in place on ceramic tiles at the restaurants main entrance. Were going to preserve as much of the old buildings as possible in the decor of the restau rant, he said. Its all going to be early 1900s. Ron Robbins is owner of the Marion Street Deli and Pub. The Marion Street Deli and Pub will be a full service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, six days a week. The res taurant is expected to employ about 30 people and will have a full liquor license, Leszkiewicz said. If it goes well, hell probably open on Sundays for brunch, Leszkiewicz said. The restaurants menu will have a wide vari ety of American and Southern foods. A pizza oven was also added to the building for home made, fresh pizza. Everything is going to be homemade, Leszkiewicz said. Nothing on the menu is going to be store bought. Its going to be all made from scratch meals. All the menus and recipes for the food are going to be individual from the chef, Ron Robbins and other people involved with the restau rant. The rehabilitation work on the buildings began in November. We got a grant from the city to improve the facade and weve been working on that and then weve been working on the inside to restore the building, Leszkiewicz said. Everything here is 100 years old, so is all the electrical and plumbing and the building had no gas, but we have gas ser vice in here for the kitchen now. Everything had to be completely redone. The restaurant could open as soon as early July. Were just taking it one day at a time right now, Leszkiewicz said. We want to go through a period before we open of having an informal opening to have staff on board, get them trained and get every thing going the way it should be going so we dont any hiccups when it opens formally and officially. The restaurant will offer outdoor seating on its patio for 35 40 people. Several television sets will be on the patio to provide entertainment for patrons. The restaurant, which will have a capacity of about 100, is slated to have 10 indoor televisions. There will also be two fireplaces, couch and sofa, and a 70-inch television. Leszkiewicz said live entertainment will also be featured on different occasions. Were hoping this will be a good attraction for all the folks around Lake City who have been looking for something we dont have yet, Leszkiewicz said. Its not going to be a typical box restaurant like they have out there at the Interstate 75, not that theres anything wrong with them, but this will be all home made, specialty-cooked foods and there will be a wide range on the menu to meet everybodys appetite. 1CColumbia Inc.

Also, a home is not very liquid: If you need to sell it quickly, you may not be able to do so without accept-ing a low price. It doesnt always hold its value well, either, as fash-ions change. Think of wood panel-ing going out of style, and two-car garages growing in popularity over one-car garages. Owning a home can make it hard to build wealth, as you pay a lot in interest over the length of your mort-gage and also have to maintain and repair the home. There are property taxes and insurance costs, too. If a home isnt an investment, what is it? Well, its a place to live and a roof over your head. Renting can be a sensible move, perhaps permitting you to sock away more money in your retirement accounts. But by buying a home, you can, ide-ally, build some equity over time. So buy a home to have a comfortable place to live and maybe raise a family. Just dont expect it to make you wealthy. To make money in real estate, consider investment/rental properties, but only if you know what youre doing and have the stomach to be a landlord. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Calling on Cash FlowTheres a good chance youre already its customer, but you might want to be a shareholder, too. Veri-zon Communications (NYSE: VZ) is a telecommunications giant, offering prodigious free cash flow, a generous dividend yield (recently near 4.3 per-cent) and an attractive valuation. It has a strong brand name and competitive advantages that keep rivals at bay. Providing nationwide cable, Internet and phone service is nearly impossible for newcomers due to the extremely high costs of build-ing out a network. This means bar-riers to entry are very high, resulting in reliable profits. Indeed, Verizon generates more than $20 billion in free cash flow annually. It distributed nearly $6 billion in dividends to shareholders last year, and has been upping its payout annually for years. In addition, Verizon has a clear catalyst for continued future growth, thanks to its highly profit-able Verizon Wireless business, which is the largest and most profit-able wireless carrier in the United States. In its last reported quarter, Verizon Wireless increased service revenue by 7.5 percent, outpacing the overall companys 4.8 percent revenue growth. The wireless busi-ness should provide plenty of cash flow to support the companys hefty dividend for a long time. With its steady growth and a priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio recently near 11 (well below the S&P 500s 18), Verizon stock is compellingly priced and worth considering.

S., online The Fool Responds: The story of Groupon is similar to many other companies that have debuted on the stock market via IPOs. It went public with a lot of buzz, and shares quickly rose into the mid-$20s. A year later, though, shares were near $4. The stock has recently been trading around $6. What went wrong? Well, the company has yet to turn a profit. It has no sustainable com-petitive advantage, as its daily deal concept is fairly easy for others to copy, and deal-seekers have little loyalty to it. Its business model is problematic, too, requiring lots of salespeople to get local businesses to offer Groupons. With IPOs and all stocks, be sure you understand how the com-pany is going to prosper.

T he Columbia County Public Library recently honored its scores of volunteers at its annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon held at the Main Library. The Library volunteers donate thou sands of hours each year by tutoring, shelving and other library tasks, helping with special proj ects such as used book sales, and serving on the Friends of the Library Board. The Library would be hard pressed without its hard working volunteers. Many high school students earn volunteer hours at the Library to count towards their Bright Futures Scholarships. If you are a member of a group that holds fundraisers or special events, you might want to check out these two titles: Organizing Special Events and Conferences; a Practical Guide for Busy Volunteers and Staff (361.37 DEO) and Successful Fundraising: a Complete Handbook for Volunteers and Professionals (658.15 FLA).

By EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.com Caitlyn Witt is not your average high school valedictorian. The 18-year-old recently gradu ated top of her class with a 4.0 at Columbia High School, receiving both a high school diploma and an associate degree in business from Florida Gateway College. Witt was enrolled as a full-time student at both institutions. The typical college student takes eight courses per year. She took nine. When she wasnt working on academics, Witt was spending 10 to 15 hours a week with Columbia Highs student government. Though it took up most of her free time, Witt enjoyed the duties and responsibilities of student government. I loved every bit of it, Witt said. Her involvement spanned three years from sophomore to senior and culminated in Witt becoming the senior class president. Her hard work, in and out of the classroom, paid off when she received an acceptance letter from the University of Central Florida. Witt will attend the university in the fall to study mechanical engineering. Witts love of math lead her down the engineering path. She was always mathematically inclined, even as a child. In ele mentary school, Witts teachers would give her more difficult problems to solve. Math always has clicked in my brain, she said. People knew her as the math girl. Witt looks to the future with hope. A Lake City resident her whole life, Witt is excited to live in a new city and to venture out to one of the largest universities in the United States, she said. She hopes to intern with an Orlando theme park and possibly double major in business. Her advice to incoming high school and college students reflects her dedication for excel lence: Make the most of your time but keep your priorities in check, Witt said.Not your average valedictorian JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterColumbia High School Valedictorian Caitlyn Witt will be studyin g mechanical engineering at the University of Central Florida this fall. Witt received both her diploma and associate degree and served as senior class president. I loved every bit of it. TASTE BUDDIES Genie Normanand Mary Kay HollingsworthTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com S ince Mary Kay will not be reviewing with me during the sum mer, when possible, I plan to invite friends and family to join me in tasting and adding their comments to my reviews. They will be my Guest Taste Buddies. My first Guest Buddies were sisters, Sandra Foreman and Rosemary Coleman, who joined me for quite a meal at the Brown Lantern in Live Oak. We had a chance to talk at length with the owner, Raleigh Brown, and learned he opened the restaurant in 1977. It had previously been a Gulf Station. If you look care fully at the structure you can see the footprint of the station as several additions have been built onto the original structure. Raleigh was raised in Live Oak and moved to Panacea while he attend ed Florida State. While there, he worked at the Claytons House of Seafood and after college he moved to Albany, Ga. to manage another Clayton House. He returned to Live Oak and opened the Brown Lantern, a sandwich shop with 44 seats. We asked him where the name came from and he said that his mother gave him an old lantern and suggested that since their name was Brown, Brown Lantern should be the name. Several lanterns still hang in the back area of the Brown Lantern is good eatin Editors note: Taste Buddy Mary Kay Hollingsworth will be taking the summer off. The column will continue by Taste Buddy Genie Norman. LANTERN continued on 5D Learn about volunteering at the library Debbie Paulson386-758-1018 VOLUNTEER continued on 5D

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: Im having prob lems with my boyfriend, Adam, and I feel stuck. He recently was accepted to graduate school, and were plan ning to move there. We havent lived together before, and Im not sure Im doing the right thing. I will be working and paying for everything, and Adam will be just going to school. He thinks this is a fair trade-off because we wont have to worry about money at all once he has completed his education. Abby, I dont think he cares that its ME going with him. I feel like a space-filler and a meal ticket. How do I go about finding out his true feelings and intentions? He doesnt make me feel special, wanted or important -ever. I worry this will end badly. I do love him, but I dont want this to be a self-fulfilling proph ecy. Please give me some advice. TO MOVE OR NOT TO MOVE DEAR MOVE OR NOT: You do need advice -and here it is: Your womans intuition is telling you this isnt right, and that your boyfriend cant be trusted to fulfill his part of the bargain. You should listen to it because thats a poor basis for uprooting yourself and becoming his benefactor. The person you have described is someone centered solely upon himself and his own needs. A man who doesnt make you feel special, wanted or important would make a very poor husband. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have three daughters in their 20s and 30s. One of them, Lauryn, is married with four children. She and her hus band are behind in their mortgage, student loans, federal, state and prop erty taxes, utilities, etc. Over the past 15 years, we have given them more than $40,000 to help them stay afloat. Things have not improved. Now that my wife and I are retired, the money we provide is cutting into our retirement savings. For the sake of our grandchildren, we continue to bail Lauryn out hop ing their finances will improve. But now we have begun to think our handouts should come at a cost. We want to tell Lauryn and our son-in-law that the money weve given -and have continued to give -will count against their inheritance. It doesnt seem fair that we have given so much to this one daughter and her family and relatively little to her sisters. Do you agree? Wed appreciate your thoughts on this. -LOVING PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS DEAR LOVING PARENTS: I do agree. And for that reason, you should discuss this issue with an attorney who specializes in estate planning, wills and trusts. Your other daughters should not suffer because Lauryn and her husband have been perpetually needy. An attorney can guide you, and it will be money well spent. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Express your feelings and ask questions if you want to get to the bottom of an emotional matter that is bothering you. Relationships must be nurtured properly in order to keep the peace. An energetic activity will ease stress. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Insecurities will mount if you make assumptions.

Your moodiness will lead to trou ble if you engage in bickering. Your mood swings will confuse everyone you encounter today. Retreat until you know what your intentions are. Dont lead someone on.

Money can be made if you invest in something that allows you to use your tal ents fully. A change of location or lifestyle will help you move forward. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put more into the way you look and what you know.

Engaging in community events will allow you to show off and improve your reputation. Make positive changes to your home and your relationships. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home and avoid any sort of altercation. Focus on fixing odd jobs around the house or spending quality time with a loved one. Keeping the peace and abiding by any rules or regulations will be nec essary. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look over personal papers. An investment will help change your financial future.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 4D By MARK KIRBY Special to the ReporterBest Picture nominations of 1949They still deserve a nod65 YEARS LATERMany interesting films were released 65 years ago, and of the five that made the cut for the Academy Award for best picture, all would still be most welcome on the list today. As a recent viewing of the quintet that voters picked as 1949s best showed me, there were no What could they have thinking to nominate THAT?!? entries, and thats a rarity as one scours the chosen five, before that year or since. There were no Oscar hogs for 1949. The most that any one film got was four. And every one of the five best picture nominees won at least two trophies. That certainly doesnt always happen. // Of course there are some films that should be added; I can think of five that could join the official nominees. But even with some flaws, in my opinion, the official five are still Oscar-worthy and certainly worth seeing. All are available on DVD (A Letter to Three Wives is also on Blu-Ray) and frequently shown on Turner Classic Movies. // Here are reviews of the 1949 best picture nominees; I could have written more about all of them, but I hope that what I have written will influence you to check them out. Read, and then go watch and enjoy! And let me know your opinions! ALL THE KINGS MENCOLUMBIA. Robert Penn Warrens Pulitzer prize-winning novel was adapted by writer-director Robert Rossen into this loud (in all senses of the word) political drama about the rise and fall of a man of the people whose humility and morality paradoxically plummet as his power zooms upward. (Warren always denied his character Willie Stark was based on Louisianas legendary Huey Long, but Warren was the only one to believe it, if he truly did.) Men IS interesting (and head and shoulders above the 2006 remake); its probably the odd mix of grit and bombast that most likely wowed Oscar voters into naming it best picture, Broderick Crawford best actor, and Mercedes McCambridge best supporting actress. (They won Golden Globes, too.) His break here from his prior big lug persona long familiar to viewers was startling, and her fierce, acrid personality was even more startling to them (this was her film debut). Other Oscar nominations: best supporting actor (John Ireland as one of Willies supporters--at first), director, editing, screenplay. Fun trivia note: the role of Willie was first offered to John Wayne, who vehemently refused it, the screenplay offending his political views. A year later he would also be a best actor nominee (for Sands of Iwo Jima), losing to Broderick Crawford. BATTLEGROUND MGM. A tribute to The Battered Bastards of Bastogne, American soldiers who fought the Germans in Belgium as part of the Battle of the Bulge in late 1944 and early 1945. Extremely well-regarded in its time, and a big money-maker, Battleground is considered the first significant film about WWII to be made in the first few years after the war. Its dated of course, because so many movies and TV shows (like M*A*S*H) have stolen from it, but if you can approach Battleground with an open mind you might be impressed. (Especially if youre not irritated by Marshall Thompson as the fresh-faced kid just arrived at the front who learns what war is all about.) Robert Piroshs Oscar-winning script at the time was much lauded for its reality, in such things about having the soldiers be vocally unhappy about their conditions amidst the rigors of war, some main characters being killed, and the tricky German soldiers who pretended to be Americans. Paul C. Vogels Oscarwinning cinematography is excellent, as is William Wellmans direction. Film has an all-star cast (Van Johnson, Ricardo Montalban, John Hodiak, George Murphy, and James Whitmore, who won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor). Besides best picture, the film was Oscarnominated for director (Wellman), supporting actor (Whitmore), and editing. THE HEIRESS PARAMOUNT. If you want to see three examples of superb acting, just watch Olivia de Havilland, Ralph Richardson, and Miriam Hopkins in this lavish costume drama set in 1849, as respectively, a plain and painfully shy spinster, her contemptuous father, and her flibbertigibbet aunt. Montgomery Clift plays the man who starts courting Catherine (de Havilland), much to her fathers fury and concern. Is Clifts Morris really a fortune hunter or does he truly love Catherine? This outcome is pretty obvious (which is the main reason I dont consider Clifts performance the same caliber as the other three leads) but the eventual denouement is a real stunner. This adaptation of a play based on the Henry James novel Washington Square was the most Oscar-lauded film of its year, with eight nominations. In what many -me included -think her best performance, De Havilland justly won the best actress prize (it was one of those years where the other four nominated ladies didnt have a prayer of winning), and deserved Oscars also went to Aaron Copland for his score, Edith Head and Gile Steele for their costume design (Head later said the costumes were the most perfect for any film she did), and Harry Horner, John Meehan, and Emile Kuri for art and set decoration. Besides best picture, the other nominations were for best supporting actor (Richardson), director (William Wyler), and cinematography. A LETTER TO THREE WIVES 20th CENTURY-FOX. Not only is Letter my favorite film of these nominees, but its also on my personal top ten favorites of all time list. Its a witty, likable, adult, ensemble comedy-drama, with many superb performances. The film deals with three friends who receive a letter from their other friend, Addie Ross, whom they despise and their husbands love, telling the ladies that she has left town for good and stolen one of their husbands. The women are off on a trip for the day, away from a phone, and during the day each wife has time to think about her wobbly marriage and flash back to recent events which may have driven her husband into the arms of the friendly nemesis Addie. The peerless cast includes Jeanne Crain, Linda Darnell, and Ann Sothern as the wives, and also Kirk Douglas, Paul Douglas (who deserved a supporting actor nomination, if not the Oscar itself), Thelma Ritter, Connie Gilchrist, Florence Bates, and the voice of Celeste Holm, as Addie. Joseph L. Mankiewicz deservedly won Oscars for his terrific script and direction. That Letter got three important Oscar nods was a tribute to its greatness, as it had been released way back in January, 1949 (the other four up for best picture were released late in the year), and also because when studio head Darryl F. Zanuck was heavily promoting his favorites for Oscars (Twelve OClock High, Pinky, and Come to the Stable) with trade paper ads, radio spots, etc., he didnt run a single ad for Letter and so double winner Mankiewicz had the last laugh.TWELVE OCLOCK HIGH 20th CENTURY-FOX. One of the greatest of all war films, :00 focuses on the psychological pressures of a bomber-squadron unit in England, and particularly the strain of being the officer in charge of the planes and flyers that must go out daily into danger and death. Gregory Peck is the tough, seemingly Draconian general--appropriately surnamed Savage--newly assigned to the unit after the previous leader was replaced for being too soft (i.e., human). Savages methods are at first resisted, then accepted as they are proven effective. As film critic Michael Gebert perceptively writes, Going against the grain of every morale-builder made during the war...[the movie] suggested that officers and men were fundamentally different creatures after all (by job if not by nature), that the individuality we were fighting to preserve was the one luxury we could not afford in wartime--and that the price of victory was a commanding officers soul. Peck is extremely impressive, giving one of his three best performances (along with 1950s The Gunfighter and 1962s To Kill a Mockingbird) and theres a good supporting cast--all men (Gary Merrill, Hugh Marlowe, Millard Mitchell, Robert Arthur, Paul Stewart, and Dean Jagger, who won the best supporting actor Oscar for the film). The only other Oscar Twelve OClock High won was for sound recording; besides best picture, its only non-winning nomination was best actor (Peck). At least Peck won the New York Film Critics Circle best actor award prize a year later. Mark Kirby lives in Lake City.

The walls are stained wood giv ing the whole restaurant a rustic, down home, wel coming atmosphere. The menu is large but Raleigh says the most pop ular item is still the fried shrimp followed by the chicken wings. They go through some 50-100 lbs. of shrimp a week and 400-500 lbs. of wings. So, we made our selec tions and we each ordered something different so that we could all get a taste of the three choic es. Rosemary ordered the fried scallop dinner ($13.50), Sandra ordered the fried Pollock ($10.85) and I had the fried shrimp sandwich ($10.85). When the meals arrived it was almost overwhelming. The fried shrimp count was over 2 dozen, the scallops were 25-29 and the Pollock was 4 filets. We all chose the grilled vegetables and we were all glad that we did. They were absolutely outstand ing with broccoli, cauli flower, carrots and mush rooms all seasoned and left with some crunch but not mushy. Just try them for yourself and youll see exactly how good they were. We all ordered wonderful coleslaw with shredded red and green cabbage and a sweet, tasty dressing. Something we all take for granted is the usual tartar sauce and cocktail sauce served with sea food dishes and they are usually not that notewor thy. Well, you are in for a treat since here both are homemade and absolutely the best ever. I especial ly liked the tartar sauce with finely chopped dill pickles, onions and a hint of horseradish and lemon. Frankly, you would just like to put a spoon in it and eat it all. To sum it up, It is rare that I leave a shrimp on my plate until this meal. Even sharing with the other two there was no way I could finish them. In fact, we all had leftovers. Very generous servings to say the least. Raleigh suggested we needed to try the chicken wings so we each ate one and we barely had room for that. Thats what Taste Buddies do, we taste. They were outstanding. Served hot and crispy and the mild ones we tried had just a tiny kick. Next time I have to order them. Every day you can choose from various specials and also from the menu. We were there on Friday and it was barbeque day. They had baby back ribs, ribs, pork steaks, sliced pork plates, chicken plus bar beque sandwiches. The specials depend on what is available that week. Mondays is usually fried grouper when available, other days include beef tips over rice, pork chops or other Chefs choice of dishes. Raleigh says that you wont find liver and onions on the menu cause he doesnt like it and he only serves things he thinks are good. We couldnt agree more about the liver. Raleigh proudly explained that the kitchen is run by his daughter, January Tuten and her husband Matt. The menu offers a wide variety of selections. Appetizers include fried macaroni & cheese ($6.40), fried Cheese ($8.65), fried Pickles ($5.35), Broccoli bites which has creamy ched dar cheese with broccoli & bacon and a crispy deep fried crust served with Ranch dipping sauce ($5.35) and another inter esting sounding one is called Voodoo Shrimp which is fried popcorn shrimp drizzled with a sweet and spicy sauce served on a bed of lettuce with chives ($8.60). Burgers range from the Double Cheese Burger ($7.50) to the Bacon Cheese Burger ($10.75). All are served on your choice of a toasted Kaiser roll or Onion roll. Also comes with a side of fries or grilled vegetables. There are numerous sandwiches and salads including a Club Sandwich ($10.75), Smoked Chicken Salad sandwich ($8.60), Blue New York steak salad ($13.99), Caesar Salad and a customer favorite, the Greek salad with their own homemade green dressing ($10.25 lg) or ($5.35 sm). This one even includes anchovies, which I love. Think Ill need to try this salad on my next visit with an appetizer of chicken wings. Yum. Seafood dinners include fried or grilled shrimp ($12.90 or $18.30), Bay Scallops ($18.30 lg or (13.50 sm), Fried Oysters served in season fry ($16.75) whole fry ($22.75), Popcorn Shrimp ($11.85) and Fish Special ($10.75) fried or grilled. Sizzling Grill Sensations include NY Strip steak ($20.50), Hamburger steak ($11.85), grilled chicken ($9.20) and Monterey Chicken ($13.50) which is grilled chicken breast sliced and sauted with onions, green peppers, mushrooms then topped with Monterey Jack Cheese. Rosemary said that her meal favorite was the shrimp sandwich which reminded her of Shrimp PoBoys she had in New Orleans. Sandra said she loved the chicken wings but her favorite was the coleslaw. She said she would go back and just have the slaw. Raleighs aunt would be pleased her secret coleslaw recipe is such a hit. The shrimp sandwich was probably my favorite but I liked the scallops too. Biggest surprise was how much I loved the Tartar Sauce. Raleigh Brown says that he offers the best that he can with the best prices possible. If I can do it better, I try, he laughingly told us. When asked why he isnt open on Saturday he told us with a twinkle in his eye that if he opened on Saturday nobody else would have a chance. He made sure to give credit to his Managers, Vickie Cameron and Tamsie Roberts plus the other 40 employees who work hard to make sure your meal is perfect. Needless to say, we found him delightful to talk with. He left our table and made his rounds to the other tables to speak with all his guests. A nice guy who really wants you to enjoy his restaurant. I do need to mention that there is a warning on the front of the menu that says During peak periods, waiting times of 30 minutes to an hour are common.

LANTERNContinued From 1DA big issue that keeps people from furthering their education at the college or university level is some semblance of doubt. Some students go through high school and just dont think theyre smart enough to continue to the next level. Others may have been out of school for 10, 20 years, and arent sure if they can do it again. Sure, they may have known the material at one point, but 20 years away from the classroom is a long time. Honestly, I can understand the intimida tion factor I made it through my Calculus 2 class in college, but put a test in front of me today with the same material and theres a very good chance Id have no clue where to start. And that feeling often keeps people from attend ing college for the first time or attending later in life. We here at Florida Gateway College under stand that could be a potential roadblock and have established a pro gram that can help in that transition. Project EXCEL is designed to help students who need that little extra help in their preparation for college courses. While all students can optionally take college prepared ness exams, a number of potential students will be required to take those tests (depending on the program of study they wish to enroll, of course). I know most people dont want to think about tak ing a test once they are admitted to college even before they register for their first class but this test is a helpful one. Heres why: these tests can reveal what areas a student may struggle in and need to brush up on. For example, lets say you take one of our college entrance exams (I wont start running off the names of all of them, lest you fall asleep reading this) and the results show that you have a deficiency in math skills. This means that your math skills arent up to par for what youll be doing in the college-level math courses. Sure, you can still enroll in those courses, but theres a good chance youll have a very difficult time with that course. So, youve got a couple of options here. One, you can enroll in a develop mental education math course to help bolster your skills. This, of course, costs money and takes an entire semester to complete. The other option is Project EXCEL and its Boot Camp pro gram. Located in Building 007, on the back side of the Charles W. Hall Student Center, Project EXCELs Boot Camp offers free educational guidance and assistance in preparing for your college classes. Signing up for the Boot Camp is simple you have to take a diagnostics test (yes, I know, theres yet another test) that will analyze your strengths and weak nesses. Based on this criterion, Project EXCEL specialists will create a customized, individual study plan and assist students in developing the skills needed for col lege-level courses. The three primary areas that Project EXCEL specializes in and the three areas that require students to take develop mental education courses are writing, reading, and math. Students will work with specialists in these fields, and over the course of 10-20 hours of work, may be prepared to retake their college pre paredness exams. Many students see a drastic increase in ability and either cut down on the number of developmental education courses they need to take, or eliminate them completely. Additionally, there are group sessions through out the year where you can join with like-minded students who need sup port in a certain area or just need the additional help. Unlike the Boot Camp sessions, which take place daily, group sessions are scheduled at the beginning of the semester and have set times throughout the week. Not everyone will have the same results, of course, but Project EXCEL has helped many students since its incep tion, so there is proof that it works! Additionally, Project EXCEL also helps mem bers of the community and not just students enrolled at FGC. Those looking to simply brush up on certain skills whether for a new job or for an upcoming interview can receive assistance from staff. Sure, it wont be as in-depth as the Boot Camp program, but you will receive the tools to improve yourself. Project EXCEL has the same hours as the college, so during the summer months, its open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Thursday. During the rest of the year, hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., though some group ses sions may have earlier or later hours. For more information about the pro gram, call (386) 754-4479 or (386) 754-4413. And if youre interested in setting up a guided tour of campus, please call (386) 754-4246.

You can also find information at the Library about recruit ing volunteers and how to keep them returning. Traveling and volun teering are not normally thought of together when planning a vacation. However, there has been an increase in the number of people who want to combine world travels with giving back to a commu nity in other parts of the world. This is definitely a different travel experience and you should check out The Back Door Guide to Short Term Adventures: Internships, Summer Jobs, Seasonal Work, Volunteer Vacations, and Transitions Abroad (650.14 LAN) and Volunteer: a Travelers Guide to Making a Difference Around the World (36`.7025 VOL). Volunteers can be almost any age and chil dren are encouraged to start volunteering so that they can learn the impor tance of giving their time to their community. Teens and Volunteerism (361.37 MAR) is a good book to check out for ideas on what kinds of activities are best suited for the junior volunteers. There are many vol unteer opportunities in Columbia County and I have been fortunate enough to have served on the United Way of Suwannee Valley Board and several United Way and Chamber of Commerce committees. Those have been great experiences not only in giving back to the com munity, but also learning about the communitys greatest needs. There are many local organizations, hospitals, and schools that would welcome you as a volunteer. Being a volunteer is rewarding not only for the organization, but for the individual who donates his or her time and expertise.

VOLUNTEERContinued From 1A
Many gardeners are constantly on the lookout for colorful, easily grown ornamental plants to liven up summer landscapes. Floridians have a wonderful assortment of native and Florida friendly plants to cool and soften outdoor living areas. But when summer arrives, splashes of colorful blooms often give way to many shades of green. How about a shrub that has big, gorgeous blooms for 30 weeks or more? French hydrangeas have been regaining popularity in recent years, primarily because of their ability to thrive and bloom in morning sun or full shade. As home landscapes mature, shrubs and trees get larger and shaded areas increase. They prefer cool winters and moist (not wet) soils. After establishment, they are moderately drought tolerant. Maintenance is minimal because they retain a rounded shape without pruning and they are nearly pest-free when properly located. There are two flower forms of these hydrangeas. Mophead types have large, ball-shaped flower clusters that can become 8 inches across. Lacecaps have large, flat clusters with showy blooms around the edge and small blooms packed in the center of the cluster. Most French hydrangeas produce blooms that are blue, purple or pink, depending on the soil conditions and pigment present in the particular plant. Soil acidity or alkalinity (measured as pH) is one of the factors that can influence the hydrangeas flower color. Several different factors work together to produce a particular color, however, so dont be dismayed if your blue hydrangea still has pink blooms after lowering the soil pH. Other factors include the amount of aluminum and phosphorus in your soil, the amount of pigment in the plant cells, the ability of the roots to take up aluminum, and the particular genetics of your cultivar. Read more about changing colors at http:// edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep330 Most older cultivars bloom in the late spring and early summer for 5 to 7 weeks. New everblooming French hydrangeas extend the bloom time throughout the summer. These plants not only flower from buds formed the previous year, but they also continue to form new buds and reflower during the growing season. Technically, this type of budding and flowering is called remontant, and French hydrangeas with this characteristic are able to flower almost continuously during the growing season. Check the stores for the new everblooming French hydrangeas and enjoy these blooms all summer long. 6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 PATIENT-FRIENDLY LOCATION BOBBY E.
