City workers uprooted and disposed of trees esti mated at 40 feet tall on New Beginnings Restoration Churchs property in late May. The trees were growing near the property line the church shares with Garden of Rest Cemetery, which city City stumped by tree question But public works director says he was ordered to do so by the city manager. Neighbor: Now my land See story, Page 6A. Johnson says he didnt OK their removalBy MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comLocal control is something school districts generally covet, but this year Tallahassee may have given them more than they wanted. A new law, SB 864, gives districts and parents greater say in textbook selection than in previous years. District officials say it is just another unfunded mandate that will cost thousands to implement and create possible logistical nightmares to boot. A local legislator who supported the bill says their fears are unfounded. The bill, which takes effect Tuesday, was sparked by complaints from critics who objected to certain instructional materials used in public school classrooms. Earlier this year, the Palm Beach County School District asked Prentice Hall to alter certain passages of a world history textbook to avoid a supposed bias toward the Muslim faith. The chairman of the Marion County Republican Party called the textbook propagative material, and a local man raised similar concerns before the Columbia County School Board. No action was taken locally on his objections. Previously, teaching materials could only be challenged once they were already in use. Now, parents will be part of the process at the outset, allowing them to stop these materials from hitting the shelves in the first place. It reinforces the long standing situation that ultimately the school administration and school board have the final say so in the educational materials that are used in the school system, said state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, Florida House Education Committee vice chair. But it also puts in place a process where members of the public can access those materials online and see what their children will be learning. If they have a problem with it, they can fill out a form and protest. Columbia County Superintendent of Schools Terry Huddleston said its not that simple. Its always good to have parent input. However, the textbook adoption process is a huge undertaking, he said. Under the new law, teams made up of school officials and parents will act as a review committee for K-12 instructional materials. The cost to the district will be tremendous, Huddleston said. For example, if math is up for adoption this year, that District says parental involvement means money they just dont have.Textbook bill: Burden or blessing?

LaBeouf, ‘not famous’ but still in headlines NEW YORK — Who can forget the time he put a paper bag on his head that read “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE”? Or when he was forced to apologize for plagiarizing parts of his short film? He then promised to retire from public life. Now, he’s been escort ed from a Broadway theater in handcuffs for allegedly yelling obsceni ties during a performance of “Cabaret.” The guy who insisted he’s not famous was heard screaming, “Do you know who I am”? Witnessing Shia LaBeouf’s recent off-screen and offstage antics is getting to be like watch ing a slow-moving train wreck. Has he become the male equivalent of Amanda Bynes? “Shia LaBeouf is certain ly not alone in displaying unusual behavior and even immaturity,” said Jason Maloni, senior vice presi dent at Levick, a strategic communications company that guides clients through challenging media situ ations. “This is just the latest incident that put him crossways with an actor’s most important constituent — his fan base as well as his fellow professionals.” Maloni added: “Bad behavior in a public set ting followed by an arrest doesn’t make for a very effective visual. Frankly, he’s been perp-walked out of Broadway, quite literally. So he’s in some distress.”Cox to marry Irish rocker LONDON — Courteney Cox says she is engaged to marry Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid. The actress, most known for her role as Monica in “Friends,” and the musician revealed their engagement Friday with a dual announcement on Twitter. This will be the second marriage for Cox, 50, who divorced actor David Arquette in May 2013 after nearly 14 years of mar riage. They have a 10-year-old daughter Coco.TV exec sues over withdrawn sex abuse case LOS ANGELES — A former network TV execu tive filed a malicious-pros ecution lawsuit against a former aspiring actor who recently withdrew a law suit that accused the exec utive of sexually abusing him in the late 1990s. Garth Ancier, states his reputation was damaged by Michael Egan’s claims that he was sexually molested by the executive and other entertainment industry figures, including “X-Men” director Bryan Singer, on a trip to Hawaii in 1999 when he was 17 years old. Ancier and Singer have denied being in Hawaii at the time Egan says he was abused. 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 ORLANDO A day after a vote tabu lation error took away her Miss Florida crown, the former pageant winner says she’s devastated about losing the title, but believes officials did the right thing. Elizabeth Fechtel, who won the crown last week before being reduced to runner-up on Friday, told The Associated Press on Saturday that she believes that “it’s fair that they go back and initially play by the rules.” Miss Florida Executive Director Mary Sullivan said Friday that the error was noticed during a routine recount and that a mark on one judge’s ballot was inadvertently overlooked. The ballots were retabulated by an independent auditor, and the contestants were notified of the correct results. The woman who’d come in second — Victoria Cowen — was named the new Miss Florida. The change came after the Miss Delaware winner was dis qualified for being too old. The initial winner in that pageant, 24-year-old Amanda Longacre, was crowned June 14 in Delaware, but lost the crown Wednesday. Miss America pag eant rules require contestants to be between 17 and 24, and Longacre will turn 25 on Oct. 22, before year’s end. Fechtel said she realizes that the rules couldn’t be overlooked in her case, or in the instance of Longacre. “I’m the one who’s receiving the bad end of the stick, but I still agree with what they did,” Fechtel said. “They couldn’t make an exception for Miss Delaware, therefore they couldn’t make an exception for me, and they won’t do the same for any other state. And I think it’s fair that they go back and ini tially play by the rules.” Judge who punched attorney returns VIERA — A Florida judge accused of punching an assistant public defender during an alter cation outside a courtroom is returning to the bench but in a different capacity. Brevard County Court Judge John Murphy returns to the bench on Monday. But instead of hearing crim inal cases, he will handle civil cases. Chief Judge John Harris said Friday that the reassignment isn’t a form of discipline. He says Murphy has been receiving anger management counseling since the altercation earlier this month. Murphy allegedly hit assis tant public defender Andrew Weinstock outside a courtroom after the two exchanged words over whether his client could have a speedy trial. USF transfers land to children’s hospital ST. PETERSBURG — The University of South Florida is transferring 1.4 acres of land to All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine. The university says the deci sion symbolizes its commitment to continuing the training of medical students at the hospital. The land was donated by the state to USF in April and was transferred this week to All Children’s Hospital. The property will be used to develop a research, education and training facility to support innovations in pediatric care and expand the future collaborative efforts of the two organizations. Detectives go to La. to interview teen TAMPA — Florida detectives are heading to Louisiana to interview a missing teenage girl who was found traveling with a registered sex offender. The two were found earlier last week after a sighting by a Louisiana truck stop cashier triggered a lengthy police chase where authorities threw down spike strips to blow out the tires on Steven Myers’ truck. Officials say Myers stabbed the 16-year-old girl and then himself before being subdued. The teen wasn’t kidnapped, but 41-year-old Myers had manipulated her to go with him, authorities said. Hillsborough County sheriff’s detectives said Friday they will interview the teen, who suffers from mental illness, while she’s in the hospital. The Associated Press is not identifying the girl or her family because of allegations that she was sexually assaulted. Florida detectives also plan to charge Myers with five counts of using a cellphone to seduce and solicit a minor child for sex. Myers is being held in Lafayette Parish jail and also faces charges that include attempted murder and unlawful sexual activity. It’s unclear when Myers will be transferred from Louisiana to face charges in Florida. Family and neighbors started social media campaigns, passed out fliers, and contacted the media after the girl went missing from her Tampa area home on June 11. Shot fired during fight at university CORAL GABLES — Police say a suspect is in custody after an attempted shooting at the University of Miami. Coral Gables police say a woman entered the School of Communications building Friday morning and got into a fight with a man in the equipment room. Witnesses say the couple appeared to be having a domes tic quarrel in the hallway and seemed to be calm. Coral Gables police spokes person Kelly Denham said one round was discharged during the altercation, but no one was injured. PEOPLE IN THE NEWS HOW TO REAC H USMain number .......

The man drove several blocks then parked on the side of the street before fondling the victim, police said. She was then allowed her to leave the vehicle, according to the release. The girl told police she was in her front yard on NW Martin Luther King Street at about 9:40 p.m. when a black pickup truck stopped on the street in front of her house. The victim told police she had seen the vehicle circling the area several times before stopping. Police were told that the driver, a 350pound unidentified black male in his late 20s or early 30s, pointed a gun at her and told her to get in the truck. The suspect has a low haircut, a clean shaven face and a cross tattoo with writing across it in the middle of his right shoulder, the release said. He was last seen wearing black gym shorts and a white t-shirt with cut off sleeves. The victims parents are not being very cooperative or forthcoming, so this is all the information we have at this time, said Mike Lee, LCPD assistant public information officer.

BY EMAIL: C harlie Crist released 10 more years of his federal tax returns Thursday, but he did not go far enough. Sooner rather than later, he should release his wife’s tax returns as well. Spouses of candidates for governor should anticipate they are giving up some personal privacy, and there are legitimate reasons that voters should see a complete picture of the personal finances of the families who want to move into the Governor’s Mansion. Gov. Rick Scott and Crist, the former Republican governor who is now a Democrat and the incumbent’s likely opponent in November, have oddly traded roles in this squabble over tax returns. Scott is one of Florida’s least transparent governors. He eschews email to avoid creating public records, releases skimpy public schedules and hides behind security concerns to prevent release of his detailed travel schedules involv-ing his private plane even after the travel is completed. Yet Scott released three years of tax returns that he filed jointly with his wife and provided additional lists of his assets that have been in a blind trust. Crist was a champion for open records as governor and one of the state’s most accessible chief execu-tives. He created the office of open government in the governor’s office, provided details about his schedule and would insist that public records be released on occasions when reporters were having difficulty prying them loose from state agencies. Now he has released 13 years of individual tax returns but refuses to release the separate tax returns filed by his wife, Carole. The issue is not whether Scott or Crist has released the highest stack of tax returns. The issue is present-ing the fullest financial accounting so voters can evalu-ate any potential for conflicts of interest. Crist argues that his wife has her own businesses, but he is on the wrong side of precedent and Florida’s reputation for openness. Four years ago, Democratic nominee for governor Alex Sink released her tax forms and those of her husband, Bill McBride, even though they filed separately. The public is smart enough to recognize that spouses often have their own business interests, and the gender of a candidate and a spouse should make no difference. The purpose of the release of tax returns by candidates for governor and their spouses is not financial voyeurism. There is too much potential for couples to mingle assets or for public officials to hide or benefit from financial interests held in their spouse’s name. An argument can be made that the release of tax returns by spouses of candidates for other public offices is unnecessary, but candidates for the most powerful elected office in Florida should be held to a higher standard and greater openness. The potential for con-flicts of interest and corruption is simply too great. Politics and marriage are package deals. Crist married while he was governor, and he knows if he wins his old job back in November that Mrs. Crist will live in publicly financed housing in the Governor’s Mansion, enjoy protection from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and have a public role to play if she chooses. Like it or not, she became a public figure when she married a once and perhaps future governor who has spent much of his adult life in elected office. With that choice comes some loss of personal privacy, and Crist should release her income tax returns.Crist needs to make full disclosureFireworks illustrate strong community partnerships Q Tampa Bay Times Ivory ban exemptions needed A s I gaze at my computer mouse pad, a rubbery version of Monet’s “Water Lilies,” I keep seeing the number 54. As in million. As in how much an anonymous American just paid for the original, painted in 1906. Of course, that’s far below the record high price for a Monet — $80.4 million in 2008 for the 1919 painting titled “Pool of Water Lilies.” Now that was a painting. At least it’s pretty cool on my wall calendar. But woe to you if the art you like includes ivory. Apparently, a century-old cameo and an ancient piano with ivory keys I cherish are encouraging the poaching of African and Asian elephants. Of course, that makes me feel terrible. Who doesn’t love elephants? But I can’t fathom the Obama administration’s thinking that almost all sales of anything with ivory in it should be banned. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans such a ban to try to make ivory worthless so evil poachers will stop killing elephants. At a recent hearing of the House Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular affairs, experts on musical instruments, hunting, conservation and antiques said, in effect, the government is nuts. The policy, they said, would “wreak havoc on law-abiding citi-zens without stopping poaching.” Sales of items with ivory, from tea-pots to violins, would be restricted without substantial documentation. Poaching is now the fifth largest organized criminal trafficking activ-ity after such things as arms, drugs and humans. Half of the world’s ele-phants reportedly have been killed in the last decade. Last year 20,000 elephants were killed for ivory. Robert G. Dreher, associate director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, insists “it is precisely the trade in such objects” as musical instruments, vintage weapons, canes, antiques, jewelry and art objects “that is killing wildlife.” Although it has been illegal to import ivory into the United States since 1989, enforcement has weak-ened. But auctioneer Matthew Quinn says his ivory collectors are mainly elderly and those who want to sell rarely have sufficient documenta-tion to meet proposed require-ments. Former Texas congressman Jack Fields says diplomacy in the past stopped 40 percent of ivory poach-ing used for Japanese hand stamps and Chinese art and the price of ivory went from one hundred dol-lars a pound to virtually nothing. Fields insisted the proposed ban is not the issue; effectively going after poachers is a better alterna-tive. “Follow the money. Shine the spotlight on the bad actors.” David Hayes, vice chair of the Federal Advisory Council on Wildlife Trafficking, said the 1989 international ban made poaching unprofitable. He said it increased as Asia’s middle class expanded and demanded ivory objects while organized crime moved in to supply them. He is correct that the government has yet to make its case to ban virtually all sales of ivory objects. Antique dealers, musicians and collectors must be exempt. Once, the government decided to dry up the drug traffic by putting drug users in jail; we know how well that worked. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service should rewrite its plan to permit legitimate trading and sales. And, no, I do not have a cameo or ancient piano for sale let alone a Monet. A few weeks ago at a memo-rial service for Harvey Campbell, several of the speakers mentioned how his vision and actions had spurred so many community service proj-ects that improved our quality of life in Columbia County. One of the many Harvey-led projects that I was fortunate enough to be intricately involved with is Lake City’s Fourth of July fire-works show. Forever, it was staged in the downtown area across the street from our office around Lake DeSoto. Back in the early 2000s, a civic club that had been organizing and coordinating the event let it go and the event was in danger of collapse. Lake City was in jeopardy of going the way of so many smaller and midsize communities in our region and not having any public displays for Independence Day. Harvey, working with his tourism department and the Downtown Action Corporation, gained approval from his supervisors to lead the charge to revive and save the fire-works extravaganza. His first stop was the Lake City Reporter office. We embraced the idea and helped Harvey by stepping up financially to be the title sponsor of the event and also getting the word out to the community that we collectively needed to rally around this event and save it. We led the promotion, Harvey went door to door and col-lected checks from additional spon-sors. Eleven years later, the Lake City Reporter continues to be your title sponsor for the Fourth of July fireworks event and we’re honored to be in this position. The Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce now coordinates the event and it is hosted in partnership with Columbia County Resources at the fairgrounds. When I was the Chamber of Commerce President in 2012, we were hit with Tropical Storm Debby, and the water table rose to levels that made the ground and pavement around Lake DeSoto unstable for the event crowd that had grown to about 25,000 people total attending the show. We could not get clearance to have the fire-works downtown, so in a pinch, Columbia County Resources stepped up and was a gracious host to the event. It was a crazy week of preparations for the switch, but with the Chamber leading the way, the fireworks went off without a hitch. At the fairgrounds, there is more room and the event has the potential to grow as a one-day family entertainment festival. After the impromptu move, the next year Chamber officials opted to keep the event at that location with the hope of growth. This Friday’s extravagan-za will mark the third consecutive year the event will be held at the fairgrounds. The Lake City Reporter, in its 140th year, is your community newspaper. We focus on local news and local people. We believe in Columbia County and we’re going to do all we can to promote and sup-port local events and lead this com-munity to bigger and better things. We bring customers to our advertis-ers and help their businesses grown efficiently. We give back to the com-munity we serve because this is our home. If we don’t lead the way and help pull this community together, who will? It’s our responsibility. The Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration in Lake City is a grand production. It’s the best of small-town America showcased Lake City style. There will be dozens of great vendors, a long list of top-notch regional music talent, and the finale will be a dazzling fireworks show at dusk that rivals big-city productions. Celebrate Lake City and celebrate the Fourth of July with your friends right here in our community. Let freedom ring! Todd Q Todd Wilson is publisher of the Lake City Reporter.

officials say no one owns but the city maintains. The trees, which some viewed as unsightly, had grown into a chain link fence used to mark the property line. Standard procedure in such cases is for the city to simply trim the overgrown trees, Lake City Public Works Director Thomas Henry said. However, workers were told to uproot the trees and haul them away from the church, located at 993 NW Lake Jeffery Road. Henry said City Manager Wendell Johnson gave him the order to remove the trees. “Mr. Johnson called me and asked me to go over there to clean that fence row out because it was overgrown towards the cemetery and the chain link fence was grown into,” Henry said. “I did what I was ordered to do.” The excavation process took two days, with one city worker — Homer Jolly — working on his own time to clear out the area, accord ing to Henry. Jolly, who operates the city extract ing equipment almost daily, is a member of New Beginnings. Henry let Jolly operate the city equipment on a Saturday and Sunday. It took two days the fol lowing week for city work ers to haul away all the trees, Henry said. Henry wasn’t comfort able with the project, he said. “I feel we could have gone in there and just trimmed the trees,” Henry said. Johnson says he never ordered the trees removed. “I authorized the trim ming of the trees. I did not authorize removing them,” Johnson said. District 12 City Councilman Zack Paulk says that trimming, not removal, was what he had in mind as well. “I talked to Wendell about a year ago about trimming those trees that were grow ing over and hanging over the fence line. Trimming them — not digging them up or anything like that,” Paulk said. However, Bishop Ronald W. Williams II, the proper ty owner, insists he talked to the city about remov ing the trees due to safety issues. During funerals, people park along both sides of Northwest Lake Jeffery Road. In addition to a blind turn, people also speed down the road, he said. “Someone was going to get killed, and I wasn’t going to let that happen,” Williams said. With the trees and fence gone, people are now wel come to park on church property where they won’t obstruct the road. “No one wanted those trees trimmed,” Williams said. It is not clear who in city government Williams may have spoken to about removing the trees. He did speak with Johnson at some point, however, though Johnson didn’t mention safety as a concern when recounting his conversa tion with Williams. “[Williams] asked me if we would assist in the clean up of vegetation to enhance the appearance of the church,” Johnson said. The city has done beau tifying projects before, he said. A few years ago city workers “spent three days and a lot of money” clean ing out an area near a sal vage yard. “It’s not unusual to do things like this,” Johnson said in reference to an order merely to trim the trees. It’s not clear what it would have cost Williams to remove the trees himself. Paulk estimated private contractors can charge hundreds of dollars or more per tree. However, Williams called the issue of cost “trivial” and said he could have borrowed equip ment from his father, County Commissioner Ron Williams, to do the work had the city declined. The elder Williams is a long-time local builder. Johnson, who was out of town last week at a confer ence, says he will look into the matter now that he’s back home. Meanwhile, no one seems to know why the trees were removed, and no one admits to giving the order. And everyone — Johnson, Henry and Paulk — has questions. “Why did we do this,” Paulk said. “What did we hope to accomplish?” 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 WILSON’S OUTFITTERS 1291 SE Baya Dr, Lake City (386) 755-7060 Reef Sandals in stock New YETI 20 & 30 oz.

Williams II and Alan Gibbs, who lives behind the church. Gibbs claims that removing the trees will lead to major flooding on his property. “I’m going to lose everything I worked for my whole life,” Gibbs said. Gibbs’ home is on a downward slope from Northwest Lake Jeffery Road. Water comes down from the road, through the church property and onto his. Gibbs has lived in his home, 1060 NW Ethel Court, his entire life. His yard has never been as wet as it currently is, he said. He is now getting water under his home. “I ain’t never had no issues like I did when they removed those trees,” he said. Concerned, Gibbs called city and county officials demanding something be done before a heavy rain hits Lake City and his house becomes permanently damaged. The city sent workers out to his property to dig a ditch to relocate water. The ditch was less than a foot deep, said City Public Works Director Thomas Henry. Gibbs was even more concerned afterward because the ditch ran along the property line, curv ing next to his back yard instead of going through to the cemetery. This was going to cause even more flooding, Gibbs claimed. The city filled in the ditch on Wednesday.Williams “very seriously doubts” that removing the trees on the church’s property is going to cause flooding for Gibbs. “He’s been flooded back there for years,” Williams said. “I don’t believe that’s what’s causing his problem.” The county has seen an increase of rain recently, he said, and everyone is flooding. “We’re going to try to help him as much as possi ble,” Williams said. City Manager Wendell Johnson said a represen tative from the city’s insurance carrier is scheduled to visit Gibbs Monday to determine whether his land is now more likely to flood.Neighbor: Now my land ZLOORRGSays removal of trees alteredtopography of churchyard.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterFORT WHITE When most people think of school guidance counselors, their minds may hark back to getting advice about applying to college. That remains an important role for guidance counselors, particularly at the high school level. But guidance counselors play other roles in helping Fort White High School run, and some of them are not what the casual observer might expect. Believe it or not, a lot of my work is about helping students feel that school is a friendly place where they belong, said middle school guidance counselor Melinda Carson, who is in her fifth year with FWHS. My office is a safe place where they can talk privately about things that are bothering them. I want them to feel that at Fort White, there will always be someone who cares about them. Students come in for counseling for many reasons, but the most common one is interpersonal conflict. Usually, the trouble is bullying, or at least thats what the student calls it, Carson said. Sometimes it is, and I may have to get discipline involved. But many times, its more a matter of a students not knowing how to handle social situations, such as a breakup with a friend. My job then is helping the child find ways to deal with these issues appropriately. I do run into the occasional student whos having trouble dealing with a teacher or teachers, but most of the time its peer-on-peer stuff.A job with variety For Carson, part of the attraction of her job is its variety; each day brings different youngsters to her office, each with his or her own special needs. Sometimes, though, the variety includes a crisis: a student may be reporting abuse, or a child may have just learned about a relatives death or hospitalization. Ive had students come in first thing in the morning and tell me their dog was run over by the school bus as it pulled away from the bus stop, Carson says. Thats not an easy one to handle. A lot of times, I end up crying with them. Guidance counselors are mandated reporters for child abuse, meaning they must call the Department of Children and Family Services immediately if they have reason to suspect that a child has been physically or sexually abused and that reason can include the childs self-report. Acting as a Band-AidThe law doesnt give us any leeway or room to make a judgment call on this, Carson said. If a child reports abuse to me, I have to call it in, no matter what I think about the situation. Its up to DCF to investigate the complaint and make a decision as to what needs to be done. Other crisis situations are not nearly so clear-cut. Many times, Im acting as a Band-Aid to get the child through the immediate emotional shock, Carson says. I can and do refer children to professional mental health care in the community for more in-depth treatment, but since Im here and Im familiar, Im in a good position to provide some emotional first aid when a child needs it. Sometimes Carsons counseling skills have to be applied to parents as well, although she doesnt provide actual counseling services to adults. Parents call here a lot about problems theyre having with the school and about concerns regarding their children, she said. On the whole, Im glad that they do. Even the ones who are aggravating are at least showing they care about their children, and I try to keep that in mind. Usually if I hear them out and then explain why matters are the way they are, we can reach a reasonable agreement as to what should be done.Tracking progressDuring the summer, Carson spends much of her time keeping up individual students academic progress records. Requirements for completing middle school arent as complex as the ones for graduation from high school, but they do have to be met, she said. Her responsibility for tracking student progress overlaps with scheduling, as she is responsible for informing the staff creating the master class schedule about classes either needed or requested by her students so that the appropriate number of sections for each class can be scheduled. I get a lot of calls about students schedules during the first two weeks of school, she said. Maybe a student didnt get a class he or she wanted, or maybe a parent doesnt like a particular teacher and wants the child in another class. I try to work out what I can. Last year, Carson also began overseeing academic counseling groups. These groups usually contain five to seven students each and are specifically intended to equip students with better study skills and work habits. Another duty that sometimes lands on her desk is being pulled away to monitor standardized testing. Life around the school gets pretty busy for Carson, and sometimes a crisis or an unscheduled visit from a parent can disrupt a day full of other things that need to be done. Nonetheless, she wouldnt have it any other way. I love this job, she said. Ive been a teacher, and Ive been a staffing specialist at the county office. But this is what I really enjoy, even though I did have to scramble pretty hard to complete the required masters degree while still working. I drive here every day from Lake City knowing that Im going to be working with a tight-knit family of teachers and staff, and I appreciate the fact that parents are so involved with this school. And I never get bored. No matter what happened yesterday, I never know what will happen when I get here. Its a challenge, but its a challenge that I love.Ive had students come Class scheduler, shoulder to lean on AVALYN HUNTER/ Special to the ReporterFort White Middle School Guidance Counselor Melinda Carson sits at her desk. Carsons work includes a variety of tasks and responsibilities, but she said she wouldnt have it any other way. FWMS guidance counselor helps students both with their studies and social lives. MELINDA CARSON didnt have the authority to do that, said Gary Evans, who represents Brownfield on behalf of the Fraternal Order of Police, LCPDs union. Only the city manager had that authority. Technically, (Brownfield) has not been terminated until the city manager says she is. Brownfield contends Gilmore violated city policy by attempting to fire her before she had her day in court. Brownfield, an LCPD officer for 13 years, was on paid administrative leave for the past seven months. She was arrested Nov. 12 following a single-vehicle accident near the intersection of Country Club Road and Buck Glen. She was terminated Monday during a pre-determination hearing at the police department. Gilmore did not elaborate on why Brownfield was terminated before criminal proceedings were complete. I based the decision I made in review of the case, she said. Gilmore also provided no insight into why Brownfield remained on paid administrative leave for more than seven months, only to be fired Monday. Thats the decision that I made, Gilmore said. Evans said Gilmore broke with city policy. Staci has a right to a complaint/ review process within the city policy and thats what were in now, he said. Its our opinion that she should not have been terminated until she exercised or completed that appeal process through the city policy. As a matter of fact its required that a conviction be the basis for a termination here with some exceptions. Evans said the city manager has some latitude if there is a serious offense and the person could then be terminated or suspended without pay. The person still has the right to appeal, but only the city manager has that power of authority, he said. Brownfield believes theres something else going on. I believe I was fired preemptively due to reasons Im unaware of, she said. I honestly cant understand why I would have been terminated without being adequately given, according to city policy, my right as city employee and police officer, my right to go through the appeal process. Brownfield filed a complaint through the citys human resources department on Thursday. The complaint said an internal investigation was launched Feb. 11 with Gilmore listed as the complainant. The internal investigation was completed May 22, sustaining the charges of conduct unbecoming an officer and violation of Florida law. Brownfield is challenging the conduct unbecoming charges as well as the violation of law charge. This charge is not well articulated within the department policy or in City policy, but seems to be solely based on the fact that an arrest occurred in this case, her complaint said. It is not contested that Officer Brownfield was arrested following a traffic accident while off-duty in civilian clothes driving her personal vehicle. There are absolutely no indications that Brownfields conduct during this process has been anything other than cooperative and professional. She maintains her innocence of the charge of DUI. Evans wants Brownfields termination postponed until after her court date, which was scheduled for July 7 but has been postponed. Were just looking to get this thing behind Staci, he said. Everybody is entitled to their day in court and as long as she is adamant that she is not guilty of this, the fact that she got arrested is not proof of guilt only a judge and the jury can say that and shes also charged with a violation of the law. You cant adjudicate a violation of the law until the law says you can. Evans said the discipline and grievance procedure for the police department is currently under negotiation between FOP and city representatives. UNIONContinued From 1ABy EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comParkview Baptist Church broke ground on a 25,000 square-foot youth center Wednesday. The building will house youth educational and worship space as well as a gymnasium. Senior Pastor Mike Tatem wanted to reach out to Lake City families. Its just giving us a chance to reach more effectively into our community, Tatem said. We are working to show area families what God has in store for them. The building will also be used for non church-related community activities. Parkview, located at 268 NW Lake Jeffery Road, recently hosted a Breakfast with the Chief event for the police department. Tatem was inspired by Chief Argatha Gilmore as she talked about keeping kids off the street and out of trouble. As the chief was speaking, I was thinking about all the ways we could use our facility to put some of these ideas into effect, he said. One possibility might be a police-sponsored youth basketball league, he said. Recalling Tropical Storm Debby, Tatem also foresees making use of the new facility in times of emergency. We would love to use our facility to house disaster relief teams, he said. The building will also house new administrative space. The area previously dedicated to that will be converted into a welcome center. Tatem preaches Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. and 11 a.m., Sunday nights at 6 p.m. and Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. to 500-550 active members. He came to Lake City with his wife Judy and his children Charlie and Megan in 2006, according to the church website. He hopes the expansion will be finished by February.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 9AIwant to take a few seconds to imagine a wonderful scenario for both students and parents. For students, imagine taking college coursework while youre still in high school, graduating with a college degree before you graduate from high school, and entering a respected university like the University of Florida as a junior, just months after high school graduation. For parents, imagine having your child complete college courseswithout the cost of tuition. Thanks to the states dual enrollment program, this isnt a far-fetched idea that someone is pitching to Legislature; its a reality, an opportunity afforded to students in Florida Gateway Colleges five-county service district, as well as students throughout our state. The program began here in 1998, allowing local high school students the opportunity to take college coursework and simultaneously earn high school and college credits. The best news here, of course, is that this comes at no additional cost to parents. Simply put, this allows students to graduate from college earlier and reduce the amount of money and time spent attending a four-year university. Some students are able to get a few courses under their belt before they graduate high school, while others actually graduate from FGC before they graduate from high school. And were not talking about just one or two students who manage this feat we had more than 60 students just this past May graduate from FGC before their high school graduation. Thats impressive, isnt it? In the state of Florida, there are more than 50,000 students who participate in the dual enrollment program. Locally, FGC had 778 dual enrollment students enrolled at FGC during this past spring. These students come from the colleges five-county service district Columbia, Baker, Gilchrist, Union, and Dixie as well as Suwannee County. Of course, with more parents discovering the dual enrollment program, that number could continue to swell. And the earlier parents learn about the program, the sooner they can begin working toward helping their students achieve their future goals. So, weve established that theres a great program here that benefits students. There has to be a catch, right? Some sort of criteria or fine print that excludes 97.62 percent of students who would apply for this program? Wrong. Florida Statutes state that all students in grades 10-12 are eligible to take dual enrollment courses if theyve met certain, fairly basic, criteria: Be enrolled as a student in a Florida public or nonpublic secondary school, or in a home school education program; Have a 3.0 unweighted high school grade point average to enroll in college credit courses, or a 2.0 high school unweighted GPA to enroll in career dual enrollment courses; Take a college placement test specified in Rule 6A-10.0315, Florida Administrative Code, and meet any additional eligibility criteria specified by the postsecondary institution in the Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement; and Not be scheduled to graduate prior to the completion of the dual enrollment course. Of course, parents and students should begin preparing for these classes well ahead of their sophomore year if enrollment in both high school and college is a focus, its suggested discussion begin on this as early as middle school. And only the parents and students know if theyre truly ready for dual enrollment classes. It takes a special, determined student to face the rigors of high school and college at the same time. But, judging by past success, we definitely have a lot of local students who are up for the challenge! More information about FGCs dual enrollment program can be obtained by calling Linda Williams at (386) 754-4443 or by visiting the High School Coordination Center at FGC, located in Building 015.

The census estimate had Florida trailing New York by less than 150,000 residents to become the nations third most populous state, but that estimate is now likely outdated. Floridas growth has outpaced New York and Florida likely surpassed New York in population earlier this year. University of Florida demographer Stefan Rayer said the increase marks a return to decent growth following stagnant popula tion change during the recession. When you compare it to 2008 or 2009, when the population wasnt growing, then its quite a rebound, Rayer said. Floridas overall population growth was driven by migration. New residents accounted for more than 90 percent of the population growth in the past three years, and more than 80 percent of the population change from 2012 to 2013. The new residents were almost evenly split between domes tic and international migration. Mike Schneider of the Associated Press contributed to this story. is math textbook review for every grade level from K-12, he said. For just one high school you have books for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus, AP classes, Geometry, Trigonometry, and the list goes on. Huddleston said that while parents will volunteer to sit on review boards for every piece of material up for adoption, teachers and school officials will have to be paid for their participation. So you multiply that by every class, every subject and representatives from every school, he said. Thats a lot of money that our small district doesnt have. Each year the school district can spend part of its money on non-adopted material, Huddleston said. He said Columbia County uses those funds for things like art and music classes. Now that money may have to be redirected to pay for the new committees, he said. This is another example of a bill that is written without a complete understanding of what happens at the implementation level, Huddleston said. When the rubber hits the road, how are we going to implement this? Huddleston expressed other concerns as well, including the qualifications of those sitting on review boards. Math is math, but when you get to history, science, biology and language arts, you would have to virtually read every single page of a book to fairly approve it, he said. We will need some parents who have some type of expertise in those areas to serve on the boards, as well as people who may not. In addition, Huddleston said, responsibility for things that should be taught at home has been moved to the school, he said. Teachers dont want that kind of responsibility, he said. Teachers are there to inform students of the facts. He used the example of a science book with material on evolution, saying that both sides of the issue should be taught, but a childs opinion should be formulated on his or her own. It could be a question of religion, custom, cultural heritage, he said. What do you do when you have a single objection? Maybe its legitimate, but maybe its just someones opinion. Julie Ulmer, a member of the Suwannee County School Board, said she thinks the state no longer wanted to deal with the public outcry about school materials, so they passed the responsibility on to the districts. She agreed with Huddleston that while the state did give districts greater power, they did not give them the funds to exert it. We always ask for local control, and yes, we have gotten that, she said. But it is also coming with a lot of costs, and that just means more money out of the classrooms. Ulmer called the legislation a double-edged sword. Its just a lot of responsibility, she said. My main opinion and concern is the responsibility it is going to take. At least one local tea party member was pleased the new law opens the door to greater citizen involvement. I hope everyone who is concerned about education (and it affects everyone) will get involved and expect their school superintendent and school boards to do the right thing for Floridas children, Sharon Higgins said in an email message. Porter, whose district includes Suwannee County, said she thinks the new legislation is important because it will give everyone a chance to voice their opinion. I dont see it being a burden unless the administration chooses for it to be, she said. Parents arent going to have any more control than they already do. Ultimately the school board and administration still makes the decision, its just giving parents a voice. Huddleston said he is waiting on technical assistance documents from the state department of education, which will help school officials better understand the law and how it can be carried out. The documents could arrive anytime between July and September, he said. I just hope they come early so we can go ahead and complete the process and order books, Huddleston said. We need them in time for school, so thats definitely a big concern I have.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comLAKE BUTLER — The big time came to the small town on Friday as the C.J. Spiller and Gerard Warren Football Camp brought plenty of opportunities for youngsters to see big stars and learn what it takes to make it to the next level. Former and current NFL players such as Vince Wilfork, Jabar Gaffney, Darrell Jackson, Kevin Kelsey and Mike Nattiel ascended on the USA Football Camp. “I can’t even put into words what it says about those guys,” Warren said. “For professionals with families and a life to come to a small town like Lake Butler just speaks volumes for the content of the guys. It’s just awesome that they can come out and help give back.” Spiller echoed those sentiments. “It says a lot for them to come help Gerard and me in this small town,” Spiller said. “There were a bunch of guys willing to take their time and help out.” By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAlthough the UCF Knights Team Football Camp is over a week old, the lessons learned by Columbia High are still paying off.

Allen said one of the biggest things to break down from the camp is the play of the offen-sive line, which had the opportunity to put on the pads for the first time this season. “It’s coming along,” Allen said. “I am chang-ing some things in our protection, so they’re still learning that a little bit. Technique is the biggest thing with those guys. Footwork, they’ll be all right. They have ability. We are not far off.” Allen said there’s not a plethora of mistakes, but a few things that could Lake City Reporter SPORTS Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, June 29, 2014 Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports 1BSPORTS CHS continued on 5B Film study from Knights camp proves valuable.

He tied for 18th in the Cleveland Open at Lakewood Country Club in Westlake, Ohio, on June 5-8. Barber played in the United Leasing Championship at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Ind., this week. He opened with a 76 and followed with a 70 to miss the cut by one stroke. Barber had another disappointment this month when he fell short of qualifying for the U.S. Open. He started strong with a 66 in local qualifying at Timacuan Golf & Country Club in Sanford. His 6-under total led the field. At sectional qualifying at Springfield (Ohio) Country Club, Barber shot 69-73 for a 2-over 142 total. He was one of 63 players vying for three slots. They went to Brian Stuard (-11), Will Grimmer (-5) and Chris Thompson (-4). None made the Open cut. Q Michael Kirkman has had a resurgence for the Round Rock Express in the last month. He is being used as a short reliever, going two innings once during the stretch. In his 10 appearances since May 29 (through Thursday), Kirkman has given up one earned run in 7 23 innings for a 1.17 ERA clip. It has lowered his season ERA to 7.56. He struck out six and walked two in the 10 games, and picked up his first win of the season on June 22. For the season Kirkman has been in 19 games (four starts) and pitched 25 innings. He has 28 strikeouts and 22 walks. Q Baltimore Ravens signee Timmy Jernigan was given a positive write-up by Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun, which can be found on Despite no contact drills, Wilson writes that Jernigan “has shown an aggressive personality on the practice field, with a willingness to mix it up that has left an impression with the Ravens’ veteran blockers.” Wilson continues, “Through two organized team activities and a rookie minicamp, Jernigan’s quick first step and ability to gain leverage has made him difficult to slow.” Wilson also writes that Jernigan “has gotten into a few scrapes with offensive linemen and engaged in his share of trash talk.” Jernigan is working into the Ravens’ 3-4 scheme. Q Dale Coleman has not added to his $3,600 earnings, but still ranks first in the PBA South Region. Coleman carries a 218.71 average in his 42 games, which ranks him 12th. He is ninth in the points standings.

Updates from the pro ranks COURTESY FWCScallops are waiting to be harvested this summer.‘Gone Coastal’: Scalloping offers family-friendly funBy AMANDA NALLEYFWC releaseI ’ll never forget my first time scalloping. It was 2008 and there I was, face down in the water, sun warming up my back, seagrass tickling my feet and legs, searching for hidden treasure and trying not to look up, lest there be something larger than me swimming about. A boat loomed above us, dive flag displayed, warning others that folks were in the water. In the distance, the Steinhatchee coast sat, waiting for our return. That was the day I fell in love with the sport of scalloping. There is something calming about intensely looking through plot after plot of identical grass for a hidden shell. You may not believe it, but I even enjoy the cleaning part (something that makes me quite popular with the scalloping crowd). It is easy to see why the season is touted as a family-friendly activity. Anyone who can snorkel can participate, and if they don’t want to be in the water, relaxing in the boat is not bad either. Cleaning time is great for catching up on the latest gossip or fishing tale. And then, after all is said and done, you get to take your bounty home and make a delicious family meal. The economic benefits of the season are huge: boatloads of people flock to the open region, often staying a few nights, renting boats, eating in local restaurants and purchasing tackle and gear while enjoying the opportunity to harvest a great food from numerous access points. The open region includes all Gulf state waters (from shore to 9 nautical miles) from the Pasco-Hernando County line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County. While scallops can be found outside of these open areas, it is within this region that bay scallops are found in large enough numbers to be sustainably harvested. This year, Gov. Rick Scott asked the FWC to open the bay scallop season June 28 instead of July 1. This way the season would open on a weekend and visitors and residents alike would be free to take full advantage of the beginning of the season. Don’t feel rushed though, while the beginning of the season is exciting, there are plenty of opportunities for success mid-to-late in the season. By then, scallops have gotten bigger and are sometimes easier to find. Interested in participating? While a boat will provide you with the most access to scalloping areas, there are places you can walk to from shore. At the very minimum, you will need a mask or goggles, a recreational fishing license (unless you are exempt), something to hold your scallop catch in such as a mesh bag, and something to make sure you don’t go over your limit, which is two gallons of whole scallops in the shell, or one pint meat per person. Have a boat? The maximum vessel limit is 10 gallons of whole scallops in the shell. The daily per-person bag limit still applies but, for example, if you have more than five people aboard (each being able to take 2 gallons whole), you still cannot have more than 10 gallons total. Bag limits help ensure the scallop population remains sustainable. A divers-down flag is also required when scalloping from a boat to ensure other boaters are aware that there are people in the water. Stay safe and remember to use your divers-down flag. To learn more about these requirements, visit /Boating and click on “Boating Regulations” and “Divers-Down Flag.” Once onshore, cleaning scallops is a cinch. Use an old spoon or knife (just be careful) to pry the shells slightly apart and then run the spoon along the inside of one of the shells, which will separate the meat from the shell. Once open, you will see the white scallop meat in the middle, surrounded by the darker guts. Run the spoon around the edge of the guts and then pull it up and off, leaving only the scallop meat attached to the shell. Finally, use the spoon to separate the meat from the shell. This is just one way to do it (another fan favorite involves a shop-vac), so feel free to do some research before getting started. Bay scallops are great sauted and tossed in with pasta, or eaten over a bed of lettuce. There are tons of recipes out there, and looking for them is almost as exciting as searching for the scallops. I hope you can get out on the water and experience this wonderful season yourself.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comLAKE BUTLER — For the fourth consecutive year, the C.J. Spiller and Gerard Warren Football Camp drew a big crowd to a small town. Bringing in over 20 current and former NFL play-ers, the camp gave a chance for children to experience first hand what it takes to make it to the big show. “Gerard brings so much energy to the drills,” Spiller said. “Everyone out on the field, you can see the ener-gy and they’re not bored. I’m doing a little coaching of the running backs with technique. It’s something for them to look forward to every year.” While the allure of the NFL is there, there’s also a legend of playing in Lake Butler and winning three state championships. “It’s awesome to be here,” Spiller said. “This is a place that won three state championships in a row. The community sup-ports the team and this is an opportunity to be able to share with them.” Spiller’s team never won a state championship at Union County High, but he made deep runs into the playoffs throughout his career. “The first year when we clinched going to state (was my biggest memory),” Spiller said. “The commu-nity was behind us all the way. I remember everyone being under blankets and going crazy.” Spiller used his platform to jump to Clemson University and eventually that landed him a gig with the Buffalo Bills where he will enter his fourth year. “I’m just trying to get ready for minicamp and that second phase,” Spiller said. “We’re in the second year of a system, so we’re familiar with this. Now I just have to go out there and help my team.” Spiller said there wasn’t a whole lot of time spent talking about the NFL on Friday, but talking about what it takes to be successful in any avenue of life. “We’re talking about more life in general,” he said. “Not everyone is going to make it to the NFL, but that doesn’t have to stop you from getting outside of Lake Butler or wherever you’re from. There’s always the opportunity to come back home.” Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 5B5B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterMembers of the Fort White High football team run the bleache rs during a summer workout.Tough challenges for Fort White footballBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFort White High’s football team is being thrown into the fire this summer, but it has nothing to do with the summer heat. The Indians have scrimmaged up in classifica-tion this summer against Buchholz and Columbia high schools. The 7-on-7 competition will lend a hand when it comes to games this fall according to head coach Demetric Jackson. “We’re working hard at it, and I’m pleased at the effort,” Jackson said. “Right now we’re going against a good group of quarterbacks and wide receivers. They have a lot of speed. “We are taking our lumps, but we will benefit in the long run.” Jackson said that when the classifications even out, that the Indians will be in better shape. “When we see teams more our size, they might have one or two guys that can run, but not as much as other teams,” Jackson said. “We’re working at it and we have a lot of young guys. We’re getting them reps that will help gain experience.” Jackson is also bringing in a new quarterback and he’s taking the project home. That’s because his son, DJ, will be taking the snaps this season. “He’s holding the ball a little too long,” Jackson said. “We’re making some mistakes, but it’s a combi-nation of problems. Quality reps is only going to make us better. You can’t repli-cate game speed.” Jackson said that although the mistakes are showing up now, he’d rather them surface in the summer than in the fall. “This is only going to benefit us when we go against smaller schools,” Jackson said. Spiller proud to give back to hometown CAMP: Instructors stress grades, too Continued From Page 1B CHS: Allen pleased with progress Continued From Page 1B BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterC.J. Spiller shows some moves while running a drill. While the players were there to show how to have fun during a football practice, it was more than just fun as they wanted to give players a real taste of what it will take to get to the next level. “We wanted to show that this isn’t all easy,” Warren said. “We have to instill in them that it’s more than just fun. You want to have fun, but you have to know it’s work. Those kids that want to quit, that’s who we really focus on, because we have to find something in them that gives them the call.” It was especially important for Warren to do it at Union County High’s Tiger Stadium. “This is where it all started,” Warren said. “That’s why it’s so impor-tant to come back. I’m still in the area and I try to work with a lot of high schools. It’s kind of funny when you go into rival schools and they give you a frown, but they know at the end of the day it’s all for the better-ment of the kids.” At the end of the day, it was all about helping to stress the most important issues outside of sports. “We wanted to stress grades,” Spiller said. “Whatever they do, if they want to get outside of Lake Butler or whatever county they’re from, we have to stress grades.” BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterFormer Gator Jabar Gaffney helps Lee Graham, 15, of Lake Butler through a receivers drill.BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterFormer Gator Gerard Warren (left) and Vince Wilfork of the New England Patriots. be shored up to help the Tigers fire on all cylinders. “It’s just some small tweaks,” Allen said. “Getting off on the cadence of the quarter-back. I’m looking back on some of the plays we didn’t make and one of the big-gest problems was just not firing off the ball. Those guys have the ability.” Although Allen moved to the offense this year, he’s still very interested in what’s going on with defensive coordinator Dennis Dotson’s side of the ball. “We did some good things and I’m sure Dotson will say we did some bad things,” Allen said. “At the end of the day, we had an opportunity to get bet-ter. Because of the film, to be able to come back and watch it, that’s one of the huge assets of the camp. Now we have the oppor-tunity to come back and correct mistakes. What we do in summer is good for conditioning, but what it doesn’t do is give you live competition. This gives us that opportunity. “The kids can now go home, watch it and see their mistakes.” Allen said that the competition at quarterback is great and that he has faith in both starter Jake Thomas as well as backup Davin Schuck. “I thought they both had a really good camp. I was proud of them. They have made progress from spring to now. It’s been light years. They’re all get-ting better and we have a good core. If we can get the O-line to protect, we can get the ball thrown where we want to. I have the best group of receivers I’ve had.” BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia High head coach Brian Allen speaks with qua rterback Jake Thomas at the UCF Knights Football Team Camp in Orlando..


A fter a full day of misery and bad luck I made a suggestion to the captain. I wanted to hit a spot that I hadnt fished in five years, but one that had been producing for me for 20 years. This spot was a high traffic area, meaning you have the weekend warriors, the cruisers, the tubers and the jet ski morons. (The second you or even I hop on a jet ski, you are possessed by a total lack of inhibition.) Heres the key. I knew this spot ALWAYS produced on this specific tide, on this exact moon phase, during this time of day. The day was now dusk, as we had successfully pitched a tent over the circus that had been our 2014 Sam Crosthwait Fishing Tournament. How successful had this spot been for me in the past? I caught my first-ever snook here when I was 15 years old. I was fishing on Parks Robinsons boat, with Joey Spivey, and she was 45 inches and 32 pounds! Fast forward 10 years and I had a trout bite Ill never forget. On topwater lures I rattled off 32-inch, 29-inch and 27-inch trout within 30 minutes. Heres the wild card: the last time I fished this area I had no beard, and no gray hair. Now, I had a full-grown man beard, and 692 gray hairs. Limping in and exhausted we hopped out of the boat about an hour before sunset. Immediately Jonathan Allen caught a small snook, which on this day felt like a blue marlin. Ten minutes later I saw something on the surface of the water, cast my topwater lure of choice (super spook), and hooked a 23-inch trout. Normally this is a decent trout, but it was more important because of the mental hurdle it cleared. We actually had a point fish, and a solid one at that. With a little hope Jonathan and I started chumming more aggressively. This is where fishing live bait can be a game-changer. As we threw out the chum (white bait), the water came to life. Its like a football game when you seize a sudden turnover and the whole complexion of the game turns. There were pops and blow-ups all around us, like an Orville Redenbacher bag of popcorn. Then it happened. Zzzzzzzzzzz ... my line started peeling out and it meant one thing. SNOOK. If youve never caught a snook, you just arent living life to its fullest. They have it all power, speed, jumping ability and tenacity. This fish went on a blistering run and took to the air, and after about a 10-minute battle I landed a 33-inch, 12.5-pound beauty. She wasnt a tournament winner, but she was big points and we now have us two point fish. At this point we waved Josh Bibler and Kyle Dawson into our area, and they waded in with chum reinforcements. We went all in. After I had the snook measured and released I filled up my bait-keeper and joined the team fishing the cut. Within five minutes I had another bite. Zzzzzzzzz ... at this point it was dark so I couldnt be sure what I had. All I know is that it went on two drag-screaming runs. Then it took to the air, and Josh yelled tarpon, and that was my thought process as well. After a few minutes we finally saw a 3-foot long silver tank, and it was another big snook. So, in a little over an hour we now had three of the six fish needed to give us a shot. Remember the football analogy? The floodgates were beginning to open. As I was photographing my fish Josh caught a big overslot redfish and Kyle and Jonathan both had some blowups and hits from some good fish. All of a sudden Team Outdoors360 had life. Buoyed by this run we headed south towards downtown Sarasota. Fishing this tournament for as long as I have Ive tried every scenario. We used to fish it all day and all night, then I became older, and realized that was stupid, and so we would pack up the boat, get a hot meal, and sleep in our warm beds. I guess Ive now gone back to the stupid level because we committed to fishing through the night to try and win this thing. If we had a shot we needed to catch a bigger snook, tarpon or redfish overnight. Ill give the cliff notes version of what transpired over the next nine hours of night fishing. Freezing. Wet. Wind. Exhaustion. Freezing. Wet. More wind. Zero fish. We caught a bunch of fresh bait and set up camp for the night. We immediately realized that wading until dark-thirty, and then fishing on the open Gulf of Mexico just hours later meant we were re-enacting an episode of Deadliest Catch on the Bering Sea. It was so cold and miserable that Jonathan actually wandered off the boat and onto the beach in search of warmth, or just a buffer from the wind. The next morning we thought we had lost him, because we couldnt find him and our yells went unanswered. He had found his warmth curled up behind a sand dune, on a bed of fresh sea grass and sea oats in the backyard of some gazillionaire. We were shocked that there wasnt a BOLO for a homeless guy with a goatee in a pair of khakis, when he came straggling out of the darkness. Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the night, and we spent the next morning contemplating a run offshore for permit (we would have been beat senseless), and cruised the shoreline looking for tarpon or cobia. We had no luck on any of the above and our last ditch effort on the flats yielded nothing better than our other fish. So, the tournament of crazy lows, and a one-hour high, had finally ended. We limped home, cleaned the boat, and set the cruise control for 250 miles north to Lake City. Rob Chapman IV is a tournament winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

The chamber has a new webpage,, and its official launch date is Tuesday. “We wanted to really display all the new things we’re doing and make the website more visually appealing, not only to our members, but anyone who visits the site,” said Abbie Chasteen, chamber of commerce marketing coor-dinator. The new website features more pull-down tab menu areas, an improved search for the chamber member directory, maps to member businesses and other enhancements. “One of the main reasons we wanted a new website is because it’s not just local people that look at this,” said Dennille Decker, chamber of com-merce executive director. “When major employers, or even families for that matter, want to get the first look at a community, one of the first places they go is usually the chamber of commerce. We wanted to make sure that the pictures and information reflected our community. We want to be an up-and-coming place to live.” Decker said updating the website has been on the chamber of com-merce’s radar for close to five years. Talks about creating a new site began about a year ago and the chamber selected a com-pany for the new design about six months ago. The chamber’s new website also allows chamber members to have their own webpage through the site. “Members can actually design their own page with pictures, information, hours, telephone numbers, etc. and if they already have their own web page, obviously they can link their website to that page,” Chasteen said. “It gives a lot of small businesses — who may not have the need for a large website or have the funds to create a website — the chance to put that on a business card. That’s really one of the biggest perks of the new website and it will def-initely be an added value to our members.” Decker said the service will be free to members and there will be support to help members set up their webpage. “The front end of the website is easy to change and move things around so I’ll be able to keep it updated with new pictures, video, and it’s just lots of new technology that we’re really excited about,” Chasteen said. The website also offers a pay online option for prospective members, an option that wasn’t previ-ously offered. In addition, JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterDennille Decker, Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of C ommerce executive director, shows off the agency’s new w ebsite,, which will launch on Tuesday, a long with a new chamber app that can be found in the App le and Android marketplaces.

Also rather international in scope, this book is about four central bankers — from the U.S., France, England and Germany — who played key roles in shaping global economic policy after World War I. Ahamed explains the Great Depression by “looking over the shoulders of the men in charge of the four principal central banks of the world.” 4. “The Great Depression: A Diary” by Benjamin Roth (Public Affairs, $16). Roth provides an extraordinary perspective on one of the most pain-ful economic events in American history. After our own experiences during the recent Great Recession, this is a particularly relevant book for contemporary readers. 5. “The Battle of Bretton Woods” by Benn Steil (Council of Foreign Relations, $20). In 1944, representa-tives from 44 nations gathered in New Hampshire to design a global monetary system. American Harry Dexter White and Englishman John Maynard Keynes “set out to create the economic foundations for a durable postwar global peace.” This award-winning book covers an important, overlooked story. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Drilling for DollarsGlobal energy production is booming, and one of the best ways to profit without being hurt by com-modity-price volatility is to invest in the companies servicing and supply-ing the oil and gas industry. Consider National Oilwell Varco (NYSE: NOV), the world leader in providing major mechanical equip-ment for land-based and offshore drilling rigs. The company has more than 800 manufacturing, sales and service centers, and about 90 percent of all rigs carry some of its equipment. National Oilwell Varco’s firstquarter 2014 results featured its backlog of orders for rig technology equipment hitting an all-time high of $16.4 billion (up 27 percent year-over-year), revenue rising 9 percent and net income jumping 18 percent. The company isn’t perfect, as it does face risks such as competition, and its profit margins have been shrinking a bit in recent years. It expects a modest near-term slow-down, too. Still, National Oilwell Varco can benefit enormously from an anticipated spending spree worth hundreds of billions of dollars in new energy production infrastructure investment. It also plans to standard-ize its equipment and infrastructure, which will help customers keep costs down without sacrificing timeliness when replacing parts. National Oilwell Varco stock is fairly inexpensive, recently with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 14 and a dividend yield close to 2.4 percent.

With some sav-ings burning a hole in my pocket, I purchased a waterfront duplex there as an investment. Living in Washington, D.C., though, it soon became apparent that we weren’t going to spend much time in Maine, and rent payments didn’t come close to paying the mortgage. The purchase was at the height of the market, and when I decided to sell several years later, the mar-ket had gone way down. Despite the loss, though, there were still funds left over. I used them to start investing in stocks, a far superior investing activity! — J.P., Washington, D.C. The Fool Responds: You’re illustrating some warnings we’ve issued over the years — that it’s best not to think of your home as an investment, and that owning rental properties is not as easy as it may appear. There are good reasons to buy properties, but keep in mind that they can lose value over time and be hard to sell. Stocks carry risks, too, but over the long run, they’ve out-performed most other investment alternatives, such as real estate, gold and bonds.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way? Boil it down to 100 words (or less) and send it to The Motley Fool c/o My Dumbest Investment. Got one that worked? Submit to My Smartest Investment. If we print yours, you’ll win a Fool’s cap!

C ourtesy. Service. Protection. This is the motto of Florida Highway Patrol, and Major Eileen Powell exemplifies it. She was promoted June 16 and now oversees the nine counties and 6,696 square miles of Troop B. Powell’s strong work ethic, dedication and love for the agency have helped her earn promotion after promo tion. Her genuine concern for cit izens not only makes her a great law enforcement officer, it makes her a good neighbor and friend. “I like helping people,” she said. “I like the people that I work with and the opportunity to make a difference in our commu nity.” Start of a careerHer career with FHP began in 1987 when she applied to be a state trooper on a whim. She was serving in the National Guard and studying to be a veterinarian when she saw a notice for openings in FHP. To her surprise she was accepted, and Powell moved to Orlando to start her fledgling career. Even as she rose up the ranks at FHP, Powell continued to serve. She dedicated 14 years to the National Guard, retiring in 1998 to focus on her family and FHP. Powell spends 4 up to 80 hours a week enforcing traffic laws, investi gating crashes, educating teens and seniors about driving and participat ing in a variety of community activi ties related to traffic safety. But FHP does more than promote safe driving. Officers strive to make the agency a supportive force for those they serve. “We like to be involved in the community,” Powell said. “We’re not just here as troopers, we’re here as families.” She loves her job, but it doesn’t come without sacrifices. She doesn’t have much free time, and shifts are long. Officers work holidays, nights and weekends. When natural disas ters hit, FHP stays behind to help. The hardest part of the job is dealing with traffic-related fatalities, Powell said.A supportive familyHer daughters Haylee and Aimee have been supportive. When Powell’s phone rang late at night, the two would pack a cooler full of soft drinks and wished her good luck, knowing Powell probably wouldn’t be home anytime soon. When she does get a few precious moments of time off, Powell likes to exercise. Physical fitness is an important aspect of her job, she said. Powell can also be found hiking or relaxing at the beach. Her career has taken her through out Florida — Orlando, Lakeland, Gainesville, Tallahassee — but Lake City is where she calls home. She came to Columbia County in 2001 and left for the state capitol to be a captain. Powell came back to Lake City in 2009, and she plans on staying a long time, Powell said. “When I got here in 2001, the peo ple have welcomed me and let me be a part of the community,” Powell said. “I came back from Tallahassee because you don’t find these type of people very often.” Powell is proud to wear the brown uniform and black campaign hat of the Florida Highway Patrol. Her hard work reflects the devo tion and passion she has for the peo ple of Lake City and her coworkers. “This agency has my heart,” Powell said. “I care about the people that I work with. Good friends are hard to find in today’s world, and I have a building full of them. It’s been a great job for 27 years.” LIFE Sunday, June 29, 2014 Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert PotashCorp Safety Program S ue Towns and I had been talking about doing some sort of trip with our moms, so when my timeshare acquired a place in Cape Cod, we thought it was an ideal place to make some memories with them. After an uneventful flight to Boston, which actually landed early, we rented our car and headed south to the Cape. Check-in was not until 4 p.m., so we had a few stops to check off our list on the way to The Breakers Resort in Dennis Port, Mass. First was a lunch stop in Plymouth. After reading some interesting reviews on the Internet, I thought we had to see Plymouth Rock. But we were hungry, so food was in order first. We based our decision on the outdoor seating TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonThe real Plymouth Rock TRAVEL continued on 4D Promoted to protect Maj. Eileen Powell, the first woman to lead FHP’s Troop B, has dedicated her life to the agency.Florida Highway Patrol Maj. Eileen Powell is the new commander for Troop B, which encompasses nine North Florida counties including Alachua, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Marion and Suwannee. Powell is the first woman to lead Troop B. She was pr omoted to the position on June 16.JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterBy EMILY STANTON | C

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I recently took my children to spend a week with my mother-in-law, “Bea.” Three days after we arrived, my husband flew in to join us. The next day, Bea handed me a hotel room key and told me to take as many of the children as I wanted, but I could not take my husband because she never gets to spend time with him! I told Bea I was offended, and that I should not have been invited if it wasn’t a “family” trip. As I was packing to leave, my mother-in-law left and spent the rest of our visit in the hotel herself while my family and I stayed at her home. My husband has now told me that I will not be “allowed” to visit her again, and when she visits us next, it will be just him and the kids because I make his mother “uncom fortable.” Must I stay away as he says, or should I pursue keeping myself included when they visit my mother-in-law? — MOM OF FOUR IN MARYLAND DEAR MOM OF FOUR: Did this happen out of the blue, or have you always had a strained relationship with your husband’s mother? (I’m guessing it’s the latter.) If so, why? If the genesis of this is something you have said or done, and you can’t mend fences, then perhaps it would be better if you made other plans while Bea visits. If it isn’t, then face it: You married a mama’s boy, and for that you have my sympathy. Were I in your shoes, rather than inflict my presence on “Queen Bea,” I’d grab the chance to treat myself to a well-earned vacation when the “lady” is in town -and ditto when your husband and the kids go to visit Granny. Check into a spa and let yourself have a good time! DEAR ABBY: I’m a 13-year old boy who loves to play baseball and football. Because of my hard work and dedication over the years, along with the help of my coaches and my dad, I’m pretty good at both sports. The issue is, my mom does not support me and repeatedly tells me I’m not good at either one. When she says it, it cuts my heart out. My parents have been divorced since I was 2, and Dad has always done everything for me. Even though he gives me encouragement, it still stings when Mom tells me I’m not good. She constantly says negative and bad things about my dad that I know are not true, but when I defend him she goes crazy with rage. What can I do to get her to stop being so negative? — VERY DISCOURAGED IN TEXAS DEAR VERY DISCOURAGED: Your letter made me sad because there is nothing you can do to make your mother change her attitude. She appears to be an angry and unhappy person, who may perceive your closeness with your father as a threat to her. What you CAN do is stop placing so much importance on receiving her approval. If your coach thinks you’re doing well, and these sports bring you a sense of closeness with your father, then you should enjoy them for those reasons. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Refuse to let what others do or say get you down. Put more emphasis on your appearance and emotional wellness. Make whatever changes are necessary in order to feel good about who you are and what you do. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t feel pressured to make a change.

Don’t let anyone push you into something that doesn’t excite you when you should be intent on taking care of your own interests. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Consider your personal and pro fessional options. Expanding your search for the perfect job or pas time will help you to feel and look your best. A renewed enthusiasm will help you get back on track. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your emotions will be unpre dictable today. Watch that you don’t back yourself into a corner because you are too proud. Put your energy into learning how to make the most of your skills in order to take advantage of future trends. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take care of pressing responsibilities. Emotions will be close to the sur face and could result in a mishap with authority or an argument with a friend. Find a suitable outlet for your energy and your emotions and you will avoid discord. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get involved in a cause. Make it your business to fix whatever isn’t working for you anymore. Be straightforward regarding your feelings and how you want to move forward. Make the necessary changes that will improve your emotional outlook. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t take on more than you can handle. Protect your reputation by doing the right thing. A day trip will lead to a better relationship with someone you love. Make personal changes that will improve your health and your emotional outlook. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore your inner thoughts and check out different cultures, philosophies and spiritual options that you feel will bring you closer to being the person you want to be. A unique lifestyle change will bring you peace of mind. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put your energy into home improvements or doing something physical with friends or family. Love is on the rise, and romance will lead to a passionate encounter. Positive change will turn into a financial gain if you are quick to react. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will become anxious if you don’t keep busy.

Network and you will pick up valuable contacts. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Nothing will stand in your way if you are prepared, organized and energetic.

Explore creative possibilities and do whatever you can to make your surroundings comfortable and convenient. Start a health regimen geared to boost your energy. +++++ Happy Birthday: Take your time. Don’t jump too quickly when asked for help or favors. Choose whatever you feel will bring you the highest returns. This is a year to make positive moves forward for yourself, not to help others gain ground. Don’t let the changes going on around you stifle your plans. Listen to advice, but don’t be too trusting of anyone sharing secret informa tion. Your numbers are 7, 18, 26, 30, 33, 35, 44.

This past weekend, I picked the most beautiful blueberries at a U-pick farm just a few miles out of Lake City. They were only $1 per pound for pick-your-own berries and $2.25 for berries that were already fresh picked. I love my fresh blueberries, so I take time to pick only the biggest ripe berries on the bushes. Even so, it only took my husband and me about one hour to pick seven pounds. Compare this transaction to that of purchasing grocery store blueberries. The store berries are most likely shipped in from growers much farther away than several miles. U-pick prices may vary slightly, but theyre all a bargain for what you get: the freshest berries possible, ripe and ready to eat, and grown by people in the community. Money spent on hometown produce recirculates in the community, helping to maintain vital local businesses and jobs. Most blueberry bushes grown in North Florida are midor late-season rabbiteye cultivars. Our late spring freezes make it impractical to grow the early southern highbush cultivars commercially. These early producing types are generally grown around Ocala and south. The Central Florida berries attain higher prices because they hit the market before mid-May, about the time when imports start arriving from other states and countries. As reported by USDAs National Agricultural Statistics Service, imports of blueberries from other countries have increased greatly. The U.S. imported 20 times more blueberries from Chile in 2012 than in 2000. Similarly, we imported 50 times more from Argentina. The most striking increase is in imported berries from Mexico: 5,800 times more. Only 1,350 pounds were reported imports from Mexico in 2000 compared to nearly 8 million pounds imported in 2012. In order to avoid costly imported blueberries, pick ripe berries now and make juice, pie filling, jams and jellies. My favorite way to stash berries for later is to freeze them whole. Spread them in a single layer on cookie sheets to freeze and the berries will stay loose, easy to use, and tasty for six months. After they are frozen, just put them in labeled freezer bags so you can easily pour some out when needed. Do you have a U-pick operation or a farm stand in Columbia County or surrounding counties? Do you have a favorite farm outlet where you shop for fruits or vegetables in the immediate area? If so, let us know at the UF/IFAS Extension Columbia County office (386 752-5384) so we can share it with other residents. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Primary Care High Blood Pressure Heart Disease Lung Disease Gastrointestinal High Cholesterol Diabetes Headache Evaluation and Treatment Arthritis Low Back Problems Evaluation and Treatment Optifast Weight Loss System Full Dizziness, vertigo and balance diagnosis and treatment Womens Health Allergy Testing & TreatmentSpecializing in adult medical care Medicare, Blue Cross, Tri-Care and most insurance plans acceptedLocated in the Lake City Mediplex Building404 N.W.

The name was Cabby Shack and I wanted to call it Crabby Shack. We all got fish and chips and boy was it good. A local beer from the Mayflower Brewing Company, called Golden Ale, topped off lunch for three of the four of us. We drove a little farther south, passing by the replica of the Mayflower and stopped to view the Rock, but not before we posed for a few pictures near the historical marker. After reading that there is some question about whether this is still the real rock, I did a little more research. The real Plymouth Rock was a boulder about 15 feet long and 3 feet wide. They say the one thing the pilgrims did not do was step ashore on the rock; that no captain would try to bring a ship in alongside a boulder. When the pilgrims decided to build a wharf and seawall, thats when the rock was first moved from the shore. And when it was moved, that is when it was split into two parts. It is located about 650 feet from where it is generally accepted that the initial settlement was built. The rock refers to the top portion, which was moved several times, and eventually rejoined with the lower half, and thats when the date 1620 was carved into the rock. Throughout its history many pieces of the rock were chipped away and taken, either as souvenirs or sold, but none since 1880. In 1867 they built the first gated monument to house it. Then in 1920, the current structure around the rock makes it only accessible by looking down at it lying on the beach. Today only about a third of the top portion remains and there are several pieces preserved and displayed in museums around the Union. We made our way to the monument, without any expectations, and looked down only to be a little disappointed. It is just a piece of rock lying on the beach with the date stamp. It begs to question the authenticity of the rock and you have to wonder how long you are supposed to stand there and look at it kind of like when I visited the Grand Canyon for the first time. Either way, its a piece of history so we had to make it part of our history. TRAVELContinued From 1D Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.
