In an email Monday to Mayor Stephen Witt and city council members George Ward, Melinda Moses, Zack Paulk and Eugene Jefferson, Johnson states that city worker Homer Jolley Jr. acted on his own in removing a line of trees on church property bordering Garden of Rest Cemetery, which the city says no one owns but the city maintains. The Lake City Reporter obtained the email Tuesday through a public records request. Johnson said he only authorized trimming, not removal, of the trees, and told City Public Works Director Thomas Henry to handle the matter, according to Arthur first TS of the season Johnson Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterBrandy Newkirk and her children stand in front of their new five-bedroom, two-bathroom home.

George Burnham, Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/ Columbia County Inc. vice-chairman, presents Newkirk a family Bible during the home dedication ceremony on Tuesday. The Newkirks receive keys to their brand new homeBy SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@ufl.eduBrandy Newkirk didnt sleep well Monday night. She didnt fall asleep until 4 or 5 a.m. Not because of nerves or anxiety, but because of excitement. In just a few hours, she would get a new home one she personally helped build. On Tuesday morning, Lake City/Columbia County Habitat for Humanity presented her and her husband along with their children with the keys to their new 1,385-square-feet, five-bedroom house at their home dedication ceremony and open house. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, she said at the open house, as her children sat a few feet away from her at the kitchen table at their new home, munching on cookies. Brandy Newkirk, her husband, Gilmore Newkirk, and their six children will move into the house on Early Street sometime this month. But for now, the Newkirks are just happy to have the house built, because while the process was worth it, it wasnt easy, Brandy Newkirk said. The Newkirks were living in a mobile home near Melrose Elementary School, and the children were on top of each other in their old home fighting constantly, their mom said. She said she knew she had to find a better place for her family when her oldest daughter, Leantra, got a spider bite. She had to take her daughter to the emergency room, where they sucked the venom out. Leantra Newkirk got the spider bite because of the poor condition of the trailer, Brandy Newkirk said. Then, she heard about Habitat for Humanity. This was our last hope, she said. The 5-bedroom house is Habitats sixth in the area.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 PBS to air Watergate documentaryNEW YORK PBS is marking the 40th anniversary of President Richard Nixons resignation by running a documentary on the Watergate scandal as seen through the prism of Dick Cavetts late-night talk show at the time. People with memories of Watergate remember developments unfolding on the evening news or the gripping Senate hearings shown on daytime TV, but fewer recall that Cavetts ABC program featured appearances by an array of pivotal figures. Even the former host. I didnt remember how much there was, Cavett told The Associated Press on Monday. I watched some of it the other day and they were new to me. From 1972 to 1974, Cavett interviewed many major Watergate figures, including Nixon aides John Ehrlichman, Alexander Haig, G. Gordon Liddy and Jeb Magruder, as well as several members of the Senate committee investigating the case. Cavetts show even taped a special edition from the room where the Senate hearings were held. The documentary Dick Cavetts Watergate features fresh interviews with reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, former Nixon aide John Dean and Cavett. PBS announced Tuesday it would air Aug. 8 at 9 p.m. EDT 40 years to the hour after Nixon announced to the nation that he was quitting. I had no choice but to spend time on it, Cavett, 77, recalled. It was just the most fascinating thing in the world. 7a 1p 7p 1a 6 a LAKE CITY ALMANA C SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the a r ea on a scale f r om 0 to 10+.

Lottery officials said Monday that the scam emails say the recipient has won a prize and should contact the listed person to claim a share of the jackpot. Once the email recipient responds, the scammers then send a follow-up email requesting financial information and money for a tax to claim the prize. Lottery officials say they do not contact players to let them know theyve won a prize unless they entered a promotional game or a second-chance drawing on the official Florida Lottery website or social media pages.

Johnson further stated that according to Thomas no direction was given by him to anyone to take all the trees down. Last week, however, Henry said that Johnson wanted the trees removed and he passed the order down the line. Henry said that Jolley, a certified heavy equipment operator for the city and a member of New Beginnings, located at 993 NW Lake Jeffery Road, volunteered to do the work on his own time over a weekend in late May, so city equipment was left at the site. Johnson attributed the decision to remove the trees to Jolley alone. I think its safe to assume Jr. Jolley felt it was less costly and simply more efficient to just take out the fence and all trees in lieu of trying to trim every thing which undoubtedly would have taken a great deal more time and labor, Johnson wrote. However, it is not clear why excavation equipment was left at the site if the trees were only to be trimmed. Johnson stated that he has no misgivings with the approach Jr. Jolley used, the method he used, nor the results. Witt, who is an attorney, said he didnt know if a city worker operating city equip ment on his own time on private property presented liability issues. Witt directed inquiries to Gene Bullard, Director of Safety and Risk Management for the city. Bullard was unavailable for comment. It is also unclear under what circumstances, if any, a municipal employee can volunteer to perform city work off the clock. Very trivial In an audio-recorded inter view last week, Henry said he did not feel comfortable ordering the trees removed, as standard practice in such cases is simply to trim them. I did what I was ordered to, he said. However, in his email to city council Johnson described any controversy over removal of the trees as very trivial and said the Lake City Reporter unknowingly embellished this situation. It is not clear what it would have cost to have a private contractor perform the work. Henry told the Reporter last week that city workers spent two days after removal of the trees hauling them away. Bishop Ronald W. Williams II, who owns the church, said it would have cost him little to remove the trees as he could have borrowed the equip ment from his father, County Commission Chairman Ron Williams, had the city declined. The elder Williams is a long-time local builder. Williams II last week called the trees a safety haz ard because lack of space caused people attending burials at the cemetery to park along Lake Jeffery Road, he said. In his email Johnson said Williams II wanted city assis tance due to the overgrown and unsightly appearance of the trees and made no men tion of a current safety issue.Second encounter It is not the first time in recent weeks Johnson and Henry have been at odds over matters involving the Williams family. Also in May, Williams II complained to Paulk that Henry failed to give his younger brother Corey Williams, a city employee, an interview for the vacant assistant public works direc tor post. Corey Williams did not at the time meet min imum posted requirements for the job. Johnson, after consult ing with Paulk, ordered the job reopened and the job description rewritten. Corey Williams met the revised requirements and was granted an interview by a five-member panel. The panel selected anoth er candidate for the post. However, upon further pro test by Williams II, Johnson put a freeze on the position and referred the matter to an attorney for further review. Johnson said Tuesday the issue is still pending. One of Williams IIs com plaints about the original hiring process was that Henry alone decided who to interview, and Johnson said Henry did get a little ahead of staff. However, according to the citys personnel manu al, The department director shall rank the applications based on qualifications for the job and determine appli cants for interview.Council reaction Paulk, who represents the district where the church is located, raised serious ques tions about the removal of the trees in an interview last week. Why did we do this? he said. What did we hope to accomplish? Contacted Tuesday, Paulk said he wanted to talk to Johnson before making com ment. He said he would like ly meet with Johnson today. Witt said he thought the matter was just a misunder standing. Ward said the issue was between Henry and Johnson, and council members were not to get involved in dis putes between administra tors and their subordinates, citing the citys charter. Section 303 of the charter states, Except for the pur pose of inquiries and inves tigations, the council or its members shall deal with city officers and employees who are subject to the direction and supervision of the man ager solely through the man ager, and neither the council nor its members shall give orders to any such officer or employee, either publicly or privately. No investigation or inqui ry is planned in this case, according to Witt. Jefferson said he talk ed to Johnson and Henry separately on Tuesday, and sensed no hostility between them. Moses could not be reached for comment despite repeated attempts by phone.

By JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE With slightly more than four months until the general election, the money machines behind Rick Scott and Charlie Crist are taking different approaches. The Lets Get to Work political committee, which has played a key role in bankrolling Scotts politi cal ambitions, spent about $3.94 million on advertis ing during the first three weeks of June, as backers of the Republican incum bent governor continue ramping up a broadcast war. Meanwhile, Charlie Crist for Florida, a committee backing the Democratic challenger, continued keeping its powder dry. The commit tee spent $406,771 during the first part of June --funneling $400,000 of that amount to the Florida Democratic Party and none to advertising. The candidates and the closely aligned com mittees filed updated campaign-finance reports Friday that showed how much money they took in and how much they spent from June 1 to June 20. In many ways, the three-week fundraising period followed familiar patterns from earlier in the year. Scotts campaign and the Lets Get to Work com mittee combined to raise nearly $1.1 million during the three weeks, with the total almost evenly divid ed between the two pots of cash. As of June 20, the Scott campaign had raised an overall total of $5,249, 490, while Lets Get to Work had raised $28,592,127. The committee also had spent a total of $16.9 million through June 20, with much of that going to advertising. For example, in addition to the $3.94 million spent during the first part of June, it spent about $3.1 million on advertising in May and $5.1 million in April. Crists campaign and the Charlie Crist for Florida committee, mean while, raised a combined total of $709,111 in cash from June 1 to June 20, with $484,020 of that total going to the committee. As of June 20, the cam paign had raised an over all total of $3.9 million, while the committee had raised $8,718,600. Before he could face Scott in the Nov. 4 general election, Crist would have to beat former state Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich in the Democratic primary. Campaign cash keeps rolling in Spending differs between Gov. Scott and former Gov. Crist. Shands LakeShoreThe Auxiliary at Shands Lake Shore Hospital is look ing for drivers for the golf cart.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org As of Tuesday in Florida, drivers who flee an accident involving a death will face mandatory prison time, and any hit-and-run driver involved in an accident with serious injuries will be committing a second-degree felony. Pushed by grass roots activists, this commonsense law reinforces the social con-tract that the well-being of crash victims trumps a drivers potential self-interest. Law enforcement officials should widely promote their new tool and let motorists know that driving away after an accident is a gamble they no longer can afford to take. Floridas lax laws on hit-and-run incidents have created an environment where drivers involved in car crashes often step on the gas rather than wait for law enforcement. One devastating inci-dent after another bears witness to the disturbing trend. Just last week, St. Petersburg police said Marquice Anderson fled after driving the wrong way down a street and smashing into a car, kill-ing three young mothers. Anderson stayed on the run for several days before turning himself in Monday. In 2012, about 17,000 people were injured in hit-and-run crashes in Florida, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Of that total, 166 died. Too often, perpetrators dont see much downside to fleeing, particularly if they have been drinking. The new law, the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act, was named for just such a case. Cohen, a 36-year-old father, was riding his bicycle in Miami in 2012 when he was struck by a car. The hit-and-run driver turned himself in 18 hours later but ultimately received a sentence of less than two years less than he might have faced had police had been able to pursue evidence toward a DUI manslaughter charge. The new law requires drivers involved in a crash with serious injuries or death to remain at the accident scene. Failure to do so results in felony charges and, in the case of a death, a man-datory minimum sentence of four years in prison. Separately, people who flee while driving under the influence also face a four-year mandatory minimum sentence, double the old punishment. All convicted hit-and-run drivers will have their licenses revoked for at least three years. No one should hit someone and drive away. Stopping could provide the chance to assist the injured or call for help. And it shouldnt take a law to promote common decency. But rapid and regular enforcement of this new law reinforces that with the privilege of driving also comes the responsibility to stay at the scene. Always.Holding drivers accountable for accidents Learning to love our nations birthday party Q Tampa Bay Times Dont go back to war in Iraq P resident Obama must not give in to the pressure from some quarters to wage war again in Iraq. Any intervention risks escalation, rising anti-Americanism and a quagmire. If the United States bombs the Sunni fundamentalists who have conquered northwestern Iraq, it will push other Sunnis into their arms. And the United States wasnt able to stabilize Iraq even when we had more than 100,000 troops there. We wont be able to stabilize it with 300 advisers or, for that matter, 10,000 troops. Some are already gearing up to blame Obama for the fall of Baghdad. Its unclear that the rebel ISIS forces will be able to con-quer Baghdad, since Shiite militias are preparing to repel them. But if Baghdad cannot stand without U.S. intervention, then it cannot be defended easily with U.S. interven-tion. The American people dont want to risk any more blood or treasure in Iraq. Thats why 77 percent oppose sending ground troops into Iraq, according to the latest polls It is amazing that some of the same folks who were responsible for dragging the country into the Iraq War on false pretenses are trying to browbeat Obama into sending troops there again. For instance, there was Dick Cheney (with his daughter Liz) with a piece in the Wall Street Journal accusing Obama of appeasement, betrayal, unnecessary apologies, empty threats, and other such behavior. But it was Vice President Cheney, along with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who clamored most loudly and most deceitfully for war with Iraq the first time. It was a war that cost the lives of 4,486 U.S. soldiers and seriously injured tens of thousands more. It was a war that killed between 100,000 and 1 million Iraqi civilians. And it came at a price tag of more than $3 tril-lion. Cheney and Rumsfeld and President George W. Bush were also responsible for foolishly dis-banding Iraqs army and for prop-ping up the sectarian regime of Nouri al-Maliki, who has spectacu-larly failed to unite the country. And Iraq would not be the training school for terrorists and Islamic militants that it has become were it not for the war that Cheney and Rumsfeld and Bush launched. That training school opened during their time in office, not Obamas. Former Bush administration officials and discredited neocon-servatives are seizing on the chaos in Iraq to try to erase their blun-ders from the historical record.Americans are noted for having short historic memories, but this time around there are too many deaths, too many resources wast-ed, too many failures to be forgot-ten. Obama should ignore their special pleading and should resist sending troops or bombers to Iraq. Instead, he should negotiate a path toward reconciliation between moderate Sunnis and Shiites in a coalition government that is opposed to the rebel extremist forces. Q McClatchey-Tribune News Service B irthday celebrations are not always sparkling affairs. The day I turned 6, I raised my hand to announce to my fellow first-graders: You are all invited to my grandmothers house today at 4 oclock to celebrate my birthday. She lives down the road from Smiths Grocery. You can bring a present if you want, or not. Then I ran home after school to tell my grandmother. You did what? she said.I invited everybody. Plus my teacher. And the principal. Well, why didnt you just invite the whole dang school? I wanted to, I said, but I feared it might get out of hand. Her eyes got big. Lord help us! How many are coming? I dont know. Its pretty short notice. Maybe not everybody. She muttered a word I wont repeat and ran to the kitchen to try to scrounge up a cake. I combed my hair and waited. Only two guests showed up: A boy who gave me a Hershey Bar. And a girl who ate it. They left when they saw the cake. My grandmother forgot the baking soda and it looked rather like a lop-sided short stack of pancakes. For lack of a candle, she lit a match. I had to laugh. Not at the match. At the light in her eyes. I wish you couldve seen it. Make a wish, she said.I closed my eyes and wished I never had to go back to school. Then I blew out the match, she sang Happy Birthday and we each had two pieces of cake. As parties go, it wasnt bad. But I had no desire for another one. Not even for my country. Thats what they called it: A Birthday Party for our Great Country. It was a Fourth of July picnic hosted by the mill where my stepfather worked. Like any other red-blooded, Godfearing, 6-year-old Southerner, Id been raised to feel blessed to live in the land of the free. I would never take that freedom for granted. I didnt feel special about much, but I felt special to be an American. I loved my country. I just didnt want to go to that picnic. Too bad, said my mother.I went. It was hot. Yes, hotter than a firecracker on the Fourth of July in a feather bed in hell. I wore a dress that made me look like Orphan Annie and sweated like Id just been baptized. Old people sat in the shade fanning themselves as if it helped. Babies lay on blankets, too hot to cry. Toddlers staggered off and got lost. Boys my age tried to kill each other. Girls my age stayed home. The millhands stood around smoking and joking, while their wives set food on the picnic tables, whirling their arms like human windmills swatting flies. Cold food was hot. Hot food was cold. And the iced tea tasted like last weeks dishwater. Then the sun went down, the night came up, the air cooled off, the stars came out and the mosqui-toes nearly ate us alive. I was hiding under a table when the fireworks began. I thought wed been bombed. Then I looked up and saw all those colors exploding in the sky. And suddenly, everything bad turned to good and all things ugly became beautiful. The old people stopped fanning and picked up the babies. The toddlers came back and the boys stopped fighting and the millhands crushed out their cigarettes to hoist their children up on their shoulders and pull their wives close to their sides. And there for a few blessed moments we all stood as one on equal ground no fighting, no argu-ing, no differences, all the same to smile up at Heaven, alive and free, oohing and ahhing and feeling special. I fell in love that night with fireworks. Not just on the Fourth of July. I can find them anywhere in sunsets and city lights, in fireflies and campfires, in hopes and dreams and the gift of freedom and, most of all, in the eyes of people I love. I bet you can find them, too.Look. Did you see that flash? Sharon Randall www.sharonrandall.com Q Sharon Randall can be contacted at P.O. Box 777394, Henderson, NV 89077.4AOPINION

From staff reports SUWANNEE COUNTY Progressive farmers in the Suwannee River Water Management District who have voluntarily demon strated exceptional envi ronmental stewardship were recently awarded the County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship award. Thirteen farm families were acknowledged for their proactive measures to pro tect natural resources at the 14th Annual CARES Dinner hosted by Suwannee River Partnership at the University of Florida / Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center. The farmers partici pating in the CARES pro gram have employed Best Management Practices, which were designed by the UF/ IFAS, established by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services research in order to better serve, protect and conserve natural resources as well as for the advance ment of agriculture. Since its inception, the CARES program estimates about 1 billion gallons of water is saved annually and nitrogen loading is reduced by 3,250 tons annually. The Florida Farm Bureau cre ated CARES in 2001. Since then nearly 600 farms have been honored with the CARES award. The 2014 recipi ents in the district are: Bertine Farms (Bradford County), Hawkins Farms (Columbia), Johnny and Margie Stephenson Farm (Dixie), Glory Produce Inc.(Gilchrist), Cook Farms (Gilchrist), GTO Farms (Gilchrist); Tyree Farm (Hamilton); Watson & Watson (Levy), Watermelon Pond Plantation (Levy); McCook Family Farms LLC (Suwannee) Cribbs Brothers Farms (Suwannee), B & L Farming (Suwannee) and Double W Farms (Union). When asked, what inspires farmers to take part in the CARES pro gram, Ronald Cribbs responded, We want to be good stewards of the land for future generations. My family is a source that inspiration, to keep our land healthy using preci sion agriculture. Honorees were acknowl edged by dignitaries from around the state. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Area farm families recognized for environmental stewardship COURTESY Fort White family honoredFrom This Farm Cares Huey Hawkins and his family own and operate Hawkins Farm in Fort White.

The last house the local Habitat for Humanity built was right around the corner from the Newkirks trailer. When that familys dedica tion ceremony was happening in December 2012, Brandy Newkirk walked over to the house to see what was going on, and someone who worked with the nonprofit told her about Habitat for Humanity. She told them about her situation and asked what she would have to do to qualify for a house. They told her she already qualified. One of three qualifications is that a family is currently living in substandard housing, said George Burnham, Lake City/Columbia County Habitat for Humanity board vice-chair man. That can mean many different things, he said. Another requirement is that the family pay for the house with a 20-year, zero-percent interest mortgage, Burnham said. And the third is that the family puts in 350 hours of sweat equity, which includes community service and time spent building the house. So Brandy Newkirk applied to Habitat for Humanity, think ing she wouldnt get chosen. About a month later, in January 2013, when she got a call saying she was approved, she was shocked and excited. That June, the building pro cess began, and not with a bang either. In fact, the beginning was pretty tough, she said. She and her husband would go out every Saturday to help build the house, which in the beginning meant laying the foundation. However, when they first dug the foundation, it rained before they could put the concrete down. And then that happened again. And again. Finally, they redug the foundation and got the concrete poured the same day. But they still had a long way to go. Brandy Newkirk wasnt just building her new home on those Saturdays, she went to work after helping with the house. Her days began around 7 a.m. and didnt end until midnight. Her 14-year-old son would sometimes help her and her husband work on the house, but she had to find a babysit ter for her younger children, which wasnt always easy. I didnt like it at first, but once it started looking like a house, I knew it was worth it, she said. She said the best day was the day they put the roof and windows on the house because thats when it really started to look like a house. Newkirk helped do anything she was asked to, including putting up walls and setting up the plumbing. The plumbing... I love the plumbing, she said. Knowing that youre putting the plumb ing in for your own house is cool. After a year of hard work, her new home was finally ready. At the ceremony Tuesday, with roughly 25 people in attendance, including members of the Newkirks extended family, Habitat for Humanity board members and local officials, Habitat for Humanity board chairman Darrell Hunt gave Brandy Newkirk the cowboy hat he wore when they worked on the house because she commented at least six times about how much she liked it. That wasnt the only thing the family was given. The Lady of the Lake Quilt Guild gave each of the six Newkirk children and Gilmore and Brandy a handmade quilt. The youngest of the Newkirk children, 4-year-old twins Brooklyn and London, got pink and red quilts with teddy bears on them. One of the quiltmakers joked that they gave them the same quilts, so they couldnt argue over them. Now that the Newkirks home is complete, Burnham said Habitat for Humanity is looking for its next partner family. He has one family lined up for the next house, but before they can begin construction on the home, which will be right beside the Newkirks, they need to have two interested families. Burnham said surprisingly, Habitat for Humanity has trou ble finding interested families, and he encourages anyone whos living in substandard housing to look at the nonprof its website hfhlakecity.org. Brandy Newkirk also urges people to get involved with Habitat for Humanity, she said. Habitat for Humanity has given her a safe, nice place to raise her children, and it can do the same for others, she said. I would like to thank everyone who came out and helped do this and helped build a home for me and fam ily a place we can always call home, a place my kids can always call home, too, she said through tears. Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 2014 7A From staff reports Lake City Medical Center announced that it is the first hospital in the tri-county area to implant the Medtronic Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) System in a patient, the smallest implant able cardiac monitoring device available. The LINQ device is approx imately one-third the size of a AAA battery, making it more than 80 percent smaller than other ICMs. While significantly smaller, the device is part of a powerful system that allows physicians to continuously and wirelessly monitor a patients heart for up to three years, with 20 percent more data memory than its larger predecessor, say hospital officials. The LINQ is a new, small er technology that helps us to diagnose heart rhythm prob lems in patients where tradi tional monitoring doesnt help us come up with a diagnosis, said Steven Roark, MD, FACC, cardiologist with The Cardiac & Vascular Institute and mem ber of the Lake City Medical Center medical staff. The advantages of this implant are that its very minimally inva sive to the patient, its a simple procedure and the device will last up to three years to capture rhythm problems. Placed just beneath the skin through a small incision of less than 1 centimeter in the upper left side of the chest, the Reveal LINQ ICM is often nearly invisible to the naked eye once inserted. The device is placed using a minimally invasive insertion procedure, which simplifies the experi ence for both physicians and their patients. The Reveal LINQ ICM is MR-Conditional, allowing patients to undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) if needed. In addition to its continuous and wireless monitoring capa bilities, the system provides remote monitoring through the Carelink Network. Through the Carelink Network, physi cians can request notifications to alert them if their patients have had cardiac events. The Reveal LINQ ICM is indicat ed for patients who experience symptoms such as dizziness, palpitation, syncope (fainting) and chest pain that may sug gest a cardiac arrhythmia, and for patients at increased risk for cardiac arrhythmias. The Reveal LINQ system also includes the new MyCareLink Patient Monitor, a simplified remote monitoring system with global cellular technology that transmits patients cardiac device diagnostic data to their clinicians from nearly any loca tion in the world. Having this type of technol ogy available to residents of Lake City and the surround ing communities is huge, said Mark Robinson, CEO of Lake City Medical Center. This is just another example of how joining forces with our sister hospital, North Florida Regional Medical Center, allows us to bring additional physician expertise to our com munity. It benefits our patients by offering access to new tech nologies close to home.New miniature cardiac monitor at LCMC Tiny, wireless device will help monitor irregular heartbeats.

From staff reportsGAINESVILLE Are you looking to become pregnant and have some idea when that might happen? University of Florida researchers need your help in solving a pregnancy mystery. The researchers, led by Kirk P. Conrad, M.D., a professor in the College of Medicines departments of physiology and functional genomics and of obstetrics and gynecology, are examining the effects of a hormone produced in pregnancy called relaxin. The hormone spurs many physiological changes, including dilating the blood vessels in womens skin, kidneys and heart. But when women become pregnant with medical assistance, or in vitro fertilization, the hormone is produced in a higher quantity or sometimes not at all. Conrad and his colleagues are trying to determine whether the absence or abundance of relaxin affects the normal ways a womans heart, blood vessels and kidneys change during pregnancy. This could possibly lead to obstetrical complications such as preeclampsia, a condition marked by high blood pressure. Women who become pregnant without medical assistance usually produce an egg from a single site within the ovary, called a follicle. The follicle then changes into what is called a corpus luteum, a glandular structure that produces the relaxin hormone. The corpus luteum is a major source of reproductive hormones that circulate in the blood in the first eight weeks of pregnancy until the placenta can take over. In the case of relaxin, the corpus luteum is the only source to produce the hormone, said Conrad, principal investigator of the study. When women undergo medically induced ovulation, their own eggs are harvested, fertilized and then implanted back into their bodies. Because administered hormones stimulate the production of many eggs, there are many follicles in their bodies, which turn into corpus lutea. The extra corpus lutea produce extra relaxin. Women who use donor eggs to become pregnant, however, do not develop follicles that turn into corpus lutea. Their ovaries produce no relaxin. Conrad and his colleagues are studying whether excess or absent relaxin may lead to exaggerated or deficient dilation of blood vessels in the womens kidneys, skin and heart. There is emerging evidence that women who become pregnant through medical assistance are at a higher risk for developing preeclampsia, and delivering babies who are lower in weight for the number of weeks they were in the womb before birth. Stanford researcher Valerie Baker, M.D., who is part of the team, is investigating this connection. Whether this is because of absence or excess of relaxin, respectively, in the donor egg recipients or in the standard in vitro fertilization patients who undergo ovarian stimulation is presently not known, Conrad said. There are other potential explanations. It could be a combination of factors. Conrad is hoping to study women who get pregnant without medical assistance to establish a baseline against which they can compare women who become pregnant through medical assistance. The researchers measure heart and kidney function before a womans pregnancy, six times during the pregnancy, and then once about six months after pregnancy. Aside from blood tests, the study is noninvasive. The problem with spontaneous pregnancies is that oftentimes, we can connect with women, but theyre already pregnant, Conrad said. But we need to investigate the women before they become pregnant so we have baseline data. We need women who are very in tune with exactly when they want to get pregnant. Conrad, along with UF researchers Mark Segal, M.D., Ph.D., Maureen Keller-Wood, Ph.D., Yueh-Yun Chi, Ph.D., R. Stan Williams, M.D., and Stanford researcher Valerie Baker, are halfway through a five-year National Institutes of Health grant that is funding their study of pregnancies conceived by assisted reproduction techniques. Women in the Gainesville area who are planning to become pregnant and who are interested in being part of the study should call Kevin Bishop, ARNP, at 352594-1583 or 877-506-2736 before going off birth control.

UF to investigate low birth weight Hormone levels may be culprit behind weight, preeclampsia. Dear Pharmacist, I bought aloe vera gel from the pharmacy and it didnt feel good on my sunburn, it actually stung. Can you recommend something else? J.S., Sebring, Florida Answer: I bet you bought a gel that contains a few other ingredients and possibly even alcohol because plain, natural aloe vera gel would not do that. It would help. Sunburn pain ranges from annoying to downright disabling if you get second degree burns. Aside from natural anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen, acetaminophen), here are some natural solutions could help reduce burning, pain and redness:Tea bagsDont drink them, put 6 of them into a pitcher of warm (or hot water) and steep for 15 to 30 minutes, or longer if you want. Your goal is to make strong tea because the tannins in the tea are comforting to the skin. Now cool the pitcher of tea with ice cubes or in the refrigerator. Dunk a rag into the tea and make a compress. Do this several times a day for several days unless you have some kind of issue. If youre traveling, you can always wet a tea bag with cold water and apply it to your skin. Lavender essential oil You can apply this to areas of your skin where it hurts really bad, like around your bikini line, your shoulders, ears, nose or shoulders. Baking soda bathFill the tub with cool water and put about four to six heaping tablespoons of baking soda in it. This soothes your skin but only soak up to 20 minutes, no more. If you soak too long, youre going to dry your skin too much and add to your misery. You dont have to take a bath, you can make a thin paste out of baking soda and water (optional two drops of lavender essential oil) and apply to your skin until it dries, then gently rinse off. OatmealIve not had good luck with this but some people swear by this trick. Fill up the bath with cool water and put in one or two cups of uncooked oatmeal and soak for 15 to 30 minutes. You can use cooking oatmeal, or a prepared commercial product called Aveeno sold online and at pharmacies. Dont shower after it, just pat your skin dry. Suzys Sunburn SpritzerFind a spray bottle and mix two ounces of distilled water with five drops of essential oils of lemon, lavender, calendula and frankincense (boswellia). If you dont like one of those scents you can substitute Roman chamomile which is another skin soother. PreventionCarrot seed oil mixed in with your natural sunscreen is helpful. Astaxanthin taken orally, has been clinically shown to reduce damage to the skin from ultraviolet radiation. Other dietary supplements that are skin protective include vitamin A, E and D, as well as resveratrol. Forget fashion, cover up your skin with clothes if youre prone to sunburn. Who cares if you have a T-shirt on in the pool? DEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Cohensuzycohen24@gmail.com Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist in Gainesville.How to get rid of sunburn pain

Lake City Purple opens play at the Rookie State Tournament in Palm Beach Gardens today. The Purple made it to state in a sudden-death situation at the Rookie Qualifier in Lake City. Lake City plays two games in todays opening round North Tampa at 9 a.m. and Miami at 3 p.m. At 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Lake City plays Atlantic Beach, and, at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Lake City plays South Orlando. After Fridays games, championship brackets will be set for the weekend. Fort White Babe Ruth Baseball sent three teams to the district tournament last week in Perry. The 10U team had the most success and ended up with a reward. After dropping its first game to Suwannee, 7-6, Fort White Minor All-Stars beat Hamilton County, 6-5, Lafayette County, 8-6, and won a re-match against Suwannee, 7-1. Fort White was knocked out in the double-elimina tion format with a 12-6 loss to Gilchrist and placed third in the tournament. However, the 10U runner-up team at district decided not to attend the state tournament and Fort White will be in the field. The state tournament for 9U, 10U and 11U is in Lake City beginning July 9. State tournament hosts do not have to qualify in a district tournament, but Lake City 11U went to Perry to get a look at Wakulla. Lake City was missing a couple of players and was swept in two games by Wakulla, which qualified for the state field. Fort White 15U was 2-2 in the district tournament. Fort White Senior AllStars beat Taylor County and Branford, and lost to Wakulla and Hamilton. Fort White 12U (Majors) was two and out at district. The three Fort White teams will play in the Small League State Invitational tournament, which begins Saturday in Fort White. The schedule will be determined at a coaches meeting Friday night.

Photos by BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Lake City Beef O Bradys patron Morgan Vines shows excitement ( ABOVE ) and disappointment ( BELOW ) within a matter of minutes while watching the Americans 2-1 loss against Belgium on Tuesday. USA falls to Belgium By RONALD BLUM Associated Press SALVADOR, Brazil They captured the eyes and hearts of a suddenly awakened soccer nation, who gathered in unprec edented numbers to watch the worlds game. But the end of the ride came at the exact same point as four years ago: with an overtime loss in the World Cups round of 16. Kevin De Bruyne final ly beat goalkeeper Tim Howard in the third min ute of extra time, Romelu Lukaku scored 12 minutes later to give Belgium a two-goal lead, and the Red Devils hung on for a 2-1 vic tory Tuesday night. Before exiting, the U.S. showed the spunk that cap tured Americas attention. Green, at 19 the youngest player on the U.S. roster, stuck out his right foot to volley in Michael Bradleys pass over the defense in the 107th minute, two minutes after entering the game. They nearly tied it up in the 114th, when Clint Dempsey peeled off the ball and was stopped point-blank by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after being fed by Bradley on a free kick. But it wasnt enough, and U.S. players fell to the field at the final whistle in their all-white uniforms like so many crumpled tissues. Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne scored in extra time Tuesday to give Belgium a 2-1 win over the United States and a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. De Bruyne gave an attack ing Belgium the lead in the 93rd minute, finally getting a shot past U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard. Lukaku made it 2-0 in the 105th. Julian Green then pulled one back for the Americans in the 107th minute, but the Americans couldnt muster another to send the match to a penalty shootout. The game was briefly delayed when a man ran onto the field in the 16th minute and had to be escorted off. Argentina won the other game on Tuesday with a 1-0 win against Switzerland in extra time. Argentina will play Belgium in the quarterfi nals. It was a match that we deserved to win, said Sabella. The first half was very even. They had two clear chances and after that the match was ours. Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld, whose brother died at age 81 one the eve of the match, said his team leaves the tournament with our heads high. We made life very tough for them, he said. They managed to keep their cool. It shows Argentina has a good team. Argentina will play its next match without left back Marcos Rojo, who is suspended. Extra time needed, but Americans lose.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I just found out that my husband of 30 years is having an affair. When I confronted him, he said: I have a girl friend. I cant imagine the rest of my life without girl friends, so get over it! Then he told me he has never been faithful, but that he loves me and would be dev astated if I left. He considers his fooling around to be safe and harmless escapades. Abby, my heart is broken. He has flaunted this woman in my face, and embar rassed and humiliated me in public. Now hes angry with me because I told her hus band what is going on. How do I find the strength and courage to leave? I have some health issues and hav ent worked in years. What do I tell our kids? My world is crashing down around my ears. HEARTBROKEN IN THE SOUTH DEAR HEARTBROKEN: Your husbands escapades are neither safe nor harmless to YOU. His behavior is callous, hurtful and disrespectful. Its very important that you remain calm and do nothing in haste. You will be better able to weigh your options if you talk to an attorney and find out what youre entitled to after hav ing been married to this man for 30 years. And if you feel it would be helpful, find a licensed counselor to talk to. DEAR ABBY: Im a new husband, and things I thought I could tolerate before we were married are really bugging me now. I raised a daughter with another woman, and my current wife deleted every picture of her -from sono grams to her second birth day -and wont let me keep anything of hers. I understand she wants our lives to be about us, but I try to keep it separate and the resentments are starting to fester. Id confront her, but shes pregnant and has been extra emotional about me even leaving for work. What do I do? Should I wait eight more months for the baby and then say something? Im afraid I will snap before then. NEW HUSBAND IN WYOMING DEAR NEW HUSBAND: Im no doctor, but you and your wife need to consult one. She appears to be suffering from severe emotional problems. Her internist and gynecologist should be told whats going on so she can start coun seling and possibly medi cation to help her with her extreme insecurity. That she would have problems about you even leaving for work is not normal behavior, and you should waste no time in dealing with this. DEAR ABBY: My sister Beth has a boy friend, Danny. They have a 6-month-old baby girl. Neither one has a drivers license, and they both have low-paying part-time jobs. Beth expects us to babysit, take her to the doctor, etc. Mom is now starting to refuse to do more than baby-sit on Sunday, because she says Beth needs to get her license and look for a better job, and it wont hap pen until shes pushed to the wall. Only then will she realize she has to. I agree, but I feel Beth and Danny should pur sue their dreams. It takes money to get a license, and where we live there is no public transporta tion. Whats your take on this tug-of-war? BIG BROTHER IN CALIFORNIA DEAR BIG BROTHER: Listen to your mother. The chances of your sister and her boyfriend attaining their dreams while working at low-paying part-time jobs are not great. What they need now is help in gaining their independence. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Toe the line and get things done. Pay close attention to detail and go above and beyond whats expected. Set an example and show professionalism in all that you do. Someone from your past will have an impact on you. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Interact with people who have something to offer. Listen carefully and ask questions if something isnt clear. Take care of your health and avoid letting past relationships stop you from moving forward. Someone with ulterior motives will disillusion you. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Problems will devel op if you ignore the truth. Dont let an emotional sit uation lead to a stalemate. Keep busy and you will ease your stress. Change is required, but try to figure out the best strategy to move forward first. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Indulge in something you enjoy doing. Attend a conference or do a little research. A creative endeav or or social get-together will lead to new friendships. Your intuition will help you make a wise choice regard ing a change that concerns you. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Something or someone from your past will bring an old idea back to life. Dont hesi tate to follow through. Pull in the people you want to work with and you will be able to reach your goal faster and more efficiently. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stay focused on what needs to be accomplished. Communicate precisely and put more detail into your work. Dont let anyone mis lead you. Jealousy or a trust issue is apparent. Protect your money and possessions and dont offer to pay for others. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a break. Dont worry so much about what others do. Follow your heart. Do something that will make you feel good about the way you look. Learning a new skill will help you move on. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick close to home and make creative changes that will add to your convenience and com fort. Putting more detail and innovation into a job you are asked to do will capture someones attention. Dont give anything away for nothing. Negotiate wisely. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll be in need of adventure, excite ment and change. An emo tional problem with a friend, relative or someone in your community is likely to push you to make a move. Size up your situation and move for ward without hesitation. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont let an aggravating situation draw you into a debate. Conflict of any kind will make it difficult to get things done. Dont let a partnership hold you back. Strive for excel lent performance and pro ductivity. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There are deals you should be con sidering. Greater cash flow could result from negoti ating contracts and settle ments. Networking will lead to interesting proposals. Make positive changes with out delay. Its your ability to size up and move on that will lead to success. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen carefully and dont allow your heart to rule your head. Question whats being offered and refrain from letting your emotions take over. Put greater emphasis on creativity, networking and getting ahead finan cially. Consider everyones motives, including your own. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Husbands harmless escapade has broken his wifes heart Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
