When Skyler Colley was turning 12 in September 2012, he asked for items that he could donate to nursing homes things like socks and every day household items. One day I was just thinking about how I get all these presents that I probably dont deserve and that a lot of other people need gifts that they dont have, he said. And I thought about the nursing home patients, and they usually dont get anything for the holidays.Hands of ChangeThats how Hands of Change, which became an official nonprofit organization on June 24, came to fruition. The organization currently has 20-30 members, but its always growing, Skylers mom, Helen Colley, said. And at any given event, usually 15 of the members are able to come, she said. One of his friends, Robbie Keen, 14, whos now a member of Hands of Change, said she remembers Skylers mom saying that at first she didnt believe he would actually ask for things for nursing home patients for his birthday. I remember your mom said that she didnt believe New kind of scams rely on victims fear, not greedBy MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comMost scammers rely on ignorance or greed, but new tactics of fraudulent scheming have them relying on victims fear. Danielle Stephens, 30, received a phone call Friday from someone impersonating a Lake City Police officer. The caller told her she had a warrant out for her arrest and would be taken to jail if she didnt supply money via a prepaid credit card. CCSO Officer Brian Lucas responded to her home and Stephens informed him that after she had applied for a loan online, she received a phone call from 386-752-4344 by a man named Charlie Lein. After speaking with Lein, Stephens was contacted by a female caller who identified herself as LCPD Officer Rodriguez. The caller told her that she had a warrant out for her arrest due to giving false information in her loan application. Stephens was told that unless she paid $375 on a prepaid credit card, she would be picked up and taken to jail. The report said Stephens was only able to put $275 on the card, but called 1-916469-6344 to give the callers the PIN number. She attempted to call the number again and speak to Lein after officers arrived, but he hung up on her several times. She also called LCPD who told her there was no warrant out for her arrest, according to the report. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterOnlookers watch the fireworks show during the Lake City 4th of July Celebration held at the Columbia County Fairgrounds last year. By MEGAN REEVES mreeves@lakecityreporter.com Family, friends, food, fun and fairgrounds are all coming together to celebrate the 238th birthday of the land of the free. The July 4th Lake City Celebration, hosted by the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, will be held at the Columbia County Fairgrounds for the third year in a row, and visitors from Columbia and surrounding counties are expected to reach far into the thousands. Dennille Decker, Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce executive director, said that the event is not only a celebration of the nation, but of the community itself. Lake City is one of the only local communities to have a fireworks show consistently over the years, she said. A lot of places had to cut that off when city budgets ran dry, but we havent had to do that in over 20 years. Along with fireworks, the event will include food and arts vendors, political booths and representatives from Tough Enough to Wear Pink, who will be selling Here comes the Fourth FOURTH continued on 6AFrom staff reports An average of 200 people per day nationally visit the emergency room in the weeks surrounding July 4 due to firework related injuries, says UF/IFAS Extension Columbia County FCS Agent Jenny Jump.

The 40-year-old writes in a letter posted on her website that she and Ty Murray want their separation to be nothing less loving than the way we came together. A representative for the singer confirmed the news Wednesday. Jewel and Murray were married in 2008. They have a son named Kase. Jewel says she decided to write the post called Dear World to inform her fans before the news broke in the tabloids.Graceland may remove Presleys old airplanes MEMPHIS For 30 years, tourists from around the world have paid money to get a look at two airplanes once owned by Elvis Presley at Graceland in Memphis. Fans enjoy touring the planes for their direct connection to Presley and his jet-setting lifestyle, a sort of touchstone to the life of the King of Rock and Roll and his family. In an April 7 letter to OKC Partnerships K.G. Coker, Elvis Presley Enterprises CEO Jack Soden says the company is exercising its option to end the agreement and asks Coker to make arrangements for the removal of the airplanes and the restoration of the site on or shortly after April 26, 2015. 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+.

According to the Miami Herald a passing motorist called 911 Tuesday after seeing the 3-month-old boy in the grassy area near a Miramar canal with a woman nearby. Miramar police say the womans behavior caused concern for the motorist, who stopped and asked if the baby was OK. The motorist has medical experience and began CPR on the child, who is at Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital in nearby Hollywood. His condition wasnt immediately available. Police say the woman now faces attempted murder charges. They declined to say whether the woman might be suffering from postpartum depression. More details were expected later Wednesday.Woman gets 7 years in credit card fraud case TAMPA A Tampa woman is heading to prison after being found guilty of taking part in a credit card ring led by her boyfriend. On Tuesday, a judge sentenced 25-yearold Danay Crespo-Rodriguez to seven years in federal prison. Authorities say Crespo-Rodriguez and her boyfriend put key loggers on credit card terminals at some stores in Tampas International Plaza. The Tampa Bay Times reports authorities recovered some 4,000 stolen credit card numbers and estimate the loss at more than $650,000. She pleaded guilty in October and was released on bail. Officials say she absconded the next month and was recaptured after being arrested on shoplifting and assault charges at a Tampa store. Officials say others involved in the ring have pleaded guilty or were convicted. One remains a fugitive.Jockey drives away with deputy hanging on truck OCALA A veteran jockey faces multiple charges after driving away from a traffic stop with a sheriffs deputy hanging on to his pickup truck. The Ocala Star-Banner reports a deputy stopped the truck Sunday night after seeing an expired tag. A computer check found the owners drivers license had been suspended seven times this year. The deputy told 42-year-old Abdiel Toribio the reason for the stop and he couldnt find paperwork showing the vehicle belonged to him. When the deputy attempted to arrest him, Toribio drove off with the deputy partially inside the vehicle. The deputy pulled himself inside the truck and convinced Toribio to stop. He now faces charges of resisting an officer with violence, driving with a suspended license and driving a vehicle without a tag.

PATRICK SCOTT/ Special to the ReporterTwo-vehicle crash injures oneEmergency responders are pictured at the scene of a two-vehicle cr ash that left one person injured and entrapped Wednesday. The crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of US 90 and SW Faith Road. The driver of the Hon da Civic had to be extricated and was taken to an area hospital. The inte r section was blocked for nearly an hour. LCFD, LCPD, CCFD and Lifegu ard responded. Tropical storm warnings droppedBy EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.com All tropical storm watch and warnings in Florida were dropped Wednesday as the first tropical storm of the 2014 hurricane sea son moved up the East Coast. Tropical Storm Arthur gained speed moving up the Florida coast into the Carolinas. It traveled north at seven mph with sus tained winds of 70 mph. It is expected to reach hurricane strength in the next couple of days, Shayne Morgan, Columbia County emergency man agement director, said. Weekend weather will not be heavily affected, according to the National Weather Service. Today there is a 40 percent chance of show ers and thunderstorms. Friday, Independence Day, has a 30 percent chance of rain. Saturday’s forecast shows a 40 per cent chance of showers, and Sunday’s shows a 50 percent chance. If you plan of going to the beach for the holiday weekend, be alert for rip currents and stronger waves, Morgan said. Arthur has moved up the East Coast. Other, more traditional scams, are still in widespread use as well. Also on Friday, 50-year-old Patty Kaman of Lake City report ed a voicemail she received from a man who told her she was the winner of a $100 Wal-Mart gift card. Kaman returned a call to the number, which had a local area code, and asked the caller how she had won. “He told me it was due to me visiting a certain website, but said he couldn’t tell me which,” she said. “‘It was one of many different websites,’ were his exact words.” He told me all I had to do was pay a nominal processing fee of $4.99 with my credit card num ber and I could get my gift card, Kaman said. She said she told the man that she did not want to pay the fee, after which he hung up on her. Kaman immediately called the Lake City Police Department seeking answers and was told there was nothing she could do. “They told me since I never gave him the $4.99, there was technically no crime committed,” she said. After persistently asking for clarification on the issue, Kaman said the officer hung up on her. “I called back and acted like we had just gotten disconnected,” she said. “But another police offi cer told me the same thing: ‘If he didn’t get any money from you, there was no crime committed.’” Kaman said she then called the FBI in hopes of more answers on what to do to help stop this from happening to other people. An FBI representative told her there have been several similar situa tions lately for which they have received calls. “I didn’t like the answer ‘there’s nothing we can do,’” she said. “I just want to keep this from hap pening to other people, especially senior citizens like myself.” The caller’s phone number could not be traced because it was a magicJack phone, and as LPCD said, no crime was com mitted. Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Murray Smith said that while these incidents may not tech nically be considered criminal, reporting them is always best regardless. “Without reporting it, there is a chance of you falling victim, and we don’t want that,” he said. “There may not be a crime case there, but it is always good to track these things and to have them on record.” Smith said these kind of scams go around quick and frequently, as there are a couple reported every few months. People have imper sonated IRS agents, police officers and power company representa tives in recent months, he said. In February, CCSO reported a scam that had been previously widespread in South Florida, but started moving north this year. Scammers have called resi dents identifying themselves as Florida Power and Light asso ciates. They tell the victim that their bill is late and services will be terminated immediately without payment, according to a release. Police have also reported fraud ulent incidents involving door-to-door scamming. In March, CCSO received an email report after a teenager came to the door selling magazines for a supposed school trip. After sending the student away, the resident contacted the school and learned there was no trip or fundraiser going on, according to a release. “One that is employed a great deal to the elderly is a call from someone posing to be a grand child of theirs that states they have been arrested and need money for bail,” Smith said. According to Smith, these types of schemes are common around not only Florida, but across the country. The best thing to do, he said, is not entertain it. “There are so many variations on the phone scams,” Smith said. “We encourage citizens to not give out personal information on the phone or computer. If it is legit they will work it out another way.” Farmers market open FridaysFrom staff reports The Live Oak farmers mar ket is open Fridays through out the summer from 12-6 p.m. at John H Hale Park, 215 NE Duval Street.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is wise to seek property own-ers’ help in pursuing land conservation. After a recessionary lull, the state’s population growth is returning to full throttle, making it critical to preserve valuable natural areas. And that won’t happen without the help of private property owners. Commission staff has identified about 19 million acres of significant wildlife habitat on privately owned lands. The state will never be able to buy every key parcel, nor should it try, given that much of it exists on ranches and other productive agricultural operations. But by collaborating with landowners, the state could develop strategies to preserve habitat without threatening the landowners. These owners have been good stewards. But they can’t be blamed for worrying about government con-trols curtailing their financial opportunities. The commission is already working with landowners, offering them incentives to preserve property and helping them with conservation plans and wildlife management. The state should continue to build on such collaboration. Nobody understands the land like those who make their living from it. And conservation can offer financial benefits. Hunters, for instance, routinely lease the hunting rights to ranch land. Some landowners capitalize on the increasing popularity of “ecotourism,” where people visit areas to canoe, bird watch, hike, camp or otherwise enjoy nature. Important to the state’s natural assets is the adoption of the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative (Amendment 1) in November. It would not increase taxes, but would dedicate 33 percent of documentary stamp tax revenue to land preservation. This was roughly the traditional amount spent on saving valuable environmental lands under the Florida Forever program until state lawmakers virtually abandoned the effort in recent years. The amendment would generate money that could be used to buy conservation rights from ranchers and farmers, which would protect habitat without interfer-ing with their enterprises. It also could help the state establish a Florida wildlife corridor linking habitat throughout the state. In 2012, photographer Carlton Ward led a 100-day, 1,000-mile expedition from the Everglades to Georgia, highlighting the importance of keeping natural sys-tems connected. Amazingly, despite Florida’s great growth, the possibility of preserving such a corridor still exists, but it will take additional land acquisitions and, perhaps even more important, agreements with private land-owners. The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s approach to preserving the great Florida outdoors — and its recreational opportunities — is correct. Work with landowners — don’t make enemies of them.Preserving Florida’s great outdoorsSome advice for the new VA secretary Q Tampa TribuneDrones need better justificationT hirteen months ago, during a speech at the National Defense University, President Barack Obama promised great-er transparency and new guide-lines for drone use as part of his counterterrorism strategy. So much for promises.An authoritative, bipartisan report released last week by the Stimson Center charged that the U.S. use of drones threatens to destabilize legal and moral norms worldwide. It also chastised the Obama administration’s failure to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of drone use and questioned drones’ effectiveness. The Stimson Center report’s recommendations demand attention. They strongly urge that the Obama administration bring more transparency and oversight to its drone program. They call for the establishment of internationally rec-ognized standards for use of lethal force outside traditional battlefields. And they recommend that the responsibility for carrying out lethal drone strikes be transferred from the CIA to the military. The authors of this report are not pacifist human rights crusaders. They include retired Army Gen. John Abizaid, the former command-er of U.S. Central Command; Philip Mudd, a former deputy director of the CIA’s counterterrorism Center; and John B. Bellinger, a legal advis-er to the National Security Council under President George W. Bush. They found that drone attacks cause fewer civilian deaths than has been charged, and they saw no evidence that the use of drones was creating a video-game mentality toward war. But they did find reason to fear that “increasing use of lethal drones may create a slippery slope leading to continual or wider wars.” Obama, in that speech to the National Defense University, pledged to make U.S. drone use “consistent with long-standing U.S. commitments to democracy, accountability and the rule of law.” The president is not honoring that commitment. Congress should consider canceling funding for the drone program until he does. Q San Jose Mercury News M EMO TO: Veterans Affairs Secretary-designate Robert A. McDonald RE: The VA’s crisis is even worse than you think! Your good news is that the White House, Congress and Department of Veterans Affairs are no longer in denial about the reality that things have gone terribly wrong in the VA hospitals. Indeed, all America finally knows the systemic shame of VA hospitals’ treatment delays, faked records and cover-ups. And apparently, the monstrous job of fixing the VA is yours. Republicans are praising your expe-rience as Procter & Gamble’s CEO. Your Senate confirmation seems assured. But the publicly released summary of White House deputy chief of staff Rob Nabors’ excellent tough-truth VA report to the presi-dent, which focused mainly on VA hospitals, leaves one major concern: Your new bosses probably still haven’t grasped the full breadth, depth and pervasiveness of all that was allowed to go so wrong, for so long, at the VA. VA pension and benefits claims bureaucracies are failing our mili-tary veterans and their families as shamefully as the backlogged VA hospitals are. PENSIONS: Bill, a severely wounded World War II veteran, had a postwar career in the post office. When he died in January 2011, his widow, Diane, simultaneously sent the VA and U.S. Postal Service all the vital documents, requesting her share of both pensions as Bill’s sur-viving spouse. USPS immediately calculated Diane’s pension share and her first check arrived when Bill’s would have, in February. But half a year went by without a VA pen-sion check. As her living expenses mounted, the VA asked for docu-ments she’d already sent. I’d heard of Diane’s plight, asked a VA official about it; Diane got a phone call from the VA the next day. Diane’s first VA pension check arrived in August. I asked a top VA official why the VA couldn’t simply do what the USPS did for the widow. The official launched into a long explanation about VA lawyers and the need to determine if Bill died due to old war injuries, which would mean a larger pension. So I naturally asked: Couldn’t the VA instantly pay her the base pension? And then pay her more, retroactively, if it proved to be a service injury death? The VA official’s eyes widened, he slapped his palm down on the conference table, then scribbled a note to himself. Yes, he said, that’s a better way to do it. He’s a good per-son; but his managerial mind has been shaped by the VA’s cultural mindset. Changing that mindset is the new VA secretary’s most urgent challenge. BENEFITS: When VA claim adjudicators issue denials — as they often do — an appeals process begins. The appeals court remands some 60 percent of the claim deni-als back to the adjudicators for reconsideration due to one mistake or another. And it all starts over again. The top level appeals court has ruled the denials of the VA adjudicators and next level board of appeals were right in a mere 24 percent of the cases that got to the court. No wonder the VA’s benefits claim backlog was recently reported to be one million. HOSPITALS: Here’s a proposal — give veterans a Vet-Med card that works like a Medicare card, and pays for treatment where service is best and waiting times are brief. Not all hospitals need to pro-vide top-level treatment for all mala-dies. In cities, some hospitals send major cardiac and cancer cases to another hospital specializing in those problems. At the start of the Obama presidency, I sought to persuade the new VA secretary, Gen. Eric Shinseki, to focus on the full scope of VA fail-ings. I’d just written a book chroni-cling sad cases of VA delays and denials of benefits and treatment. But back then Shinseki was in denial about what the book — titled, “Vets Under Siege: How America Deceives and Dishonors Those Who Fight Our Battles” — was warning. Back then he didn’t believe the subtitle. And especially, he prob-ably didn’t grasp the validity of my conclusion that an adversarial mindset had permeated the VA. Too many employees saw their jobs as assuring veterans didn’t get benefits they didn’t deserve. I urged that VA employees must see themselves first as veterans’ advocates, tasked with what they’d earned. Nothing more, but surely nothing less. Even in his last days, Shinseki told Congress there were only a “limited” number of “isolated” cases where VA hospitals falsified delay records. Only in his last hours did the four-star general admit he’d been deceived by a “systemic ... overarching environment and cul-ture” within the VA. There is one way our new bold VA secretary can change the VA mindset — by changing the VA’s name. Let all VA employees know, first and foremost, they now work for the Department of Veterans Advocacy.

Entertainers will perform until about 9:20 p.m., when the fireworks show begins, weather permitting. If its drizzling, it is still on, Decker said.

Two years later, by the time he turned 14, he said he wanted to expand the club and keep giving. He said he enjoyed giving to nursing home patients so much that he wanted to continue doing it. I wanted to do more service projects, and I got a couple of my friends to help, he said. He continued visiting patients at nursing homes, but instead of just visiting those at Avalon Health Care Rehab where he first started, he and his friends started going to other nursing homes in Lake City, too. They brought things to the patients and spent time with them, playing games and just visiting with them. They get really competitive during those board games, bingo especially, Skyler said. I remember these two men I was sitting with, and one of them got bingo. He slams his hand down and just screams Bingo! as loud as he can. Skylers mom said its amazing how the kids connect with the people in the nursing home. Its amazing because they go in, and they each connect with someone different, she said. They walk in, and theyre off. Theyre not afraid. Theyre nurturing. Theyre caring. They listen. But they didnt stop with volunteering at nursing homes.Fundraisers, tooThe children, all in middle and high school, started doing other service projects as a part of the organization. Theyve raised money for families in need, and right now, theyre working on planning a fundraiser for a fouryear-old with a deadly disease whos family is having trouble paying his medical bills, Skyler said. And theyre always looking for more projects. Theyve held one car wash to raise money and are looking to do more of those, Skyler said. His dad, Chris Colley, said, Theres been nothing more fun than the car wash. Churches and other individuals have donated items for Hands of Change to give to nursing home patients. One man donated antiques for the kids to take to men at nursing homes on Fathers Day, which they brought to men at three Lake City nursing homes. Skyler said they decided to incorporate the nonprofit, so that more businesses would be able to donate to them since many felt uncomfortable doing so otherwise.Brainstorming ideasWhile theyre always trying to raise more money to help people, theyre also always trying to come up with new causes and projects. The organization has meetings usually once a week, sometimes once every two weeks, and at those meetings, they brainstorm ideas for future projects, Skyler said. But his mom, who acts as a kind of adviser for the organization, said kids call and text her at other times with ideas, asking how they can make those ideas possible. One girl called her Tuesday night saying that she thought it would be nice to put flowers on the graves of veterans in honor of Independence Day. Hands of Change also works on stopping bullying. A lot of the children involved in Hands of Change go to or just graduated from Richardson Middle School, so theyve mostly focused on preventing bullying there, Skyler said. Bullying is important to a lot of the members because some of them have been the victims of bullying, Skyler said. I know some of us have actually been bullied, he said. I know I was bullied in sixth grade. Laura Streeter, 15, whos a member of the organization, said when she services the community she can tell shes making a difference, especially when shes visiting with nursing home patients. You can see the difference in the people, she said. You can just tell that they really needed it, and to be able to do that is just awesome.

Casey Michael Roebuck, 30, of 141 SW Elizabeth Glen, faces charges of reckless driving, jail records show. While on patrol, Deputy Josh Latimer saw Roebuck speeding on Bascom Norris Drive near State Road 47 on a red motorcycle at 8:06 p.m. and gave chase, according to a CCSO arrest report. Roebuck turned south on Sisters Welcome Road and accelerated to an estimated 100 mph, the report said. A northbound motorist told Latimer of a speeding motorcycle heading toward Stare Road 47, the report said. Latimer alerted another deputy, who saw Latimer coming his direction on Business Point Road and took him into custody after he pulled into the south entrance of Sitel and stopped in a parking space. According to the report, Roebuck said the reason he ran was because he wanted to avoid conflict and that he was an idiot. Roebuck was taken to the Columbia County Detention Center, where he was issued a Uniform Traffic Citation for reckless driving, the report said. He was released on $1,000 bail.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, JULY 3, 2014 7A From staff reports GAINESVILLE —The Florida Museum of Natural History is continuing its popular “A for Science” free admission program for K-12 students statewide. Students who receive an “A” or “E” grade in a science may present their most recent report card at the front desk and receive a free admission with the pur chase of a paid regular price adult admission. The offer is valid for the “Butterfly Rainforest” exhibit, the “Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs” exhibit open through Sept. 1, or a value admission for both exhibits. “The ‘A for Science’ program directly supports our emphasis on youth education,” said Darcie MacMahon, who oversees the Florida Museum’s Exhibits and Public Programs Division. “It encourages them to take a strong interest in the sciences by reward ing stellar academic achieve ment.” The “Butterfly Rainforest” is a 6,400-square-foot, lush, tropical garden with hundreds of living butterflies from around the world, including 60 to 80 different spe cies at any given time. “Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs” is the world’s largest travel ing exhibit on the history, biology and evolution of dogs, and uses the familiarity and love of these four-legged friends to explore science and biological concepts. Through multi-media displays, artifacts, photo murals and diora mas, this family-friendly exhibit explores what makes the human-dog relationship unique. Visitors may participate in inter active, hands-on activities like climbing into an avalanche scene to see what it’s like to be saved by a search-and-rescue dog. They can also guess what dogs are say ing in a “howling area” and test their noses against a dog’s power ful sense of smell. Children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

From staff reports For the last four years, Current Problems and vol unteers have done some thing amazing: They have removed thousands of pounds of unsightly trash and toxic garbage from our rivers here in North Florida. The Great Suwannee River Cleanup began with an idea to clean up the Suwannee from the Georgia state line all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Building on three years of very successful clean ups, last year we expand ed our vision to include the Suwannee’s tribu taries. These rivers that flow into the Suwannee suffer the same fate when trash and harmful gar bage accumulate on river bottoms and along river banks. By cleaning up the tributaries, we are help ing to maintain not only the health and beauty of each river but also of the Suwannee River down to the estuaries and the Gulf of Mexico. During last year’s cleanup event, volunteers worked along the banks and divers scoured river bottoms removing literal ly thousands of pounds of trash. This year, the same dedicated river-cleaners are sought again. Current Problems is looking for volunteers to organize cleanups on the Suwannee, the Santa Fe, the Withlacoochee and the Ichetucknee rivers. The 2014 cleanup will occur during a three-month window from September through November along the Suwannee River and its tributaries. Businesses, civic clubs, fishing and boating groups, church es, government agencies, non-profits, chambers of commerce, and groups of friends are all encour aged to participate. Go to the event map at http://tinyurl.com/mwa2pjk to determine your section based on mileposts and GPS coordinates. Then register your group, the date of your cleanup, and your river section online at http://tinyurl.com/l9pntwn. Shortly after reg istration, your cleanup will appear on the event map. Current Problems is available to assist you as you plan your cleanup and to provide supplies (grab bers, buckets, trash bags, etc.). If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Current Problems’ Executive Director Fritzi Olson at 352-215-7554 or e-mail her at aar@current problems.org. If you can’t participate but would still like to sup port this effort, the partner ship is looking for sponsors to help out with expenses and will also gladly accept in-kind donations. Call or e-mail Fritzi to learn more about sponsorship oppor tunities. The Great Suwannee River Cleanup 2014 begins soon Three-month project will run Sept. – Nov. ‘14. FILECurrent Problems is currently seeking volunteers to help cleanup the Ichetucknee River (above). The cleanup project will run September through November in an effort to keep the rivers free of garbage and toxic chemicals.

CHS track goes eliteBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High track coach Travis Sheppard is heading up the ATC Elite Track Club this summer. The club is composed of athletes ages 6-18 from Columbia and Alachua counties. Coach April Morse of the Eye of the Tiger has merged her AAU team with Sheppard. Members of the ATC Elite Track Club competed in the AAU district qualifier, and then an AAU regional quali-fier, both at Bishop Snyder High in Jacksonville. “The top 16 at district qualify for regional, which is known as the state meet for AAU,” Sheppard said. “Only the top eight will go on to compete at the AAU Junior Olympics in Des Moines, Iowa, from July 27 to Aug. 3.” ATC Elite’s 4x100 relay team of Autumn Brown, Aja Lewis, Willondria Green and Ayanna Rollins placed third in the regional with a time of 52.62. The third-place fin-ish was good for a spot in the AAU Junior Olympics field. Rollins, who anchored the relay team, also qualified for AAU Junior Olympics in the 100 meters and 200 meters. She is from Alachua. Green and Lewis, who ran the second and third legs, respectively, are from Lake City, and Brown is from Gainesville. Sheppard said the girls are unlikely to make the trip, both for financial rea-sons and he has another obligation the same week. Sheppard has hopes of attend the IAAF World Junior Coaching Conference at the University of Oregon. Sheppard came to CHS after coaching track at Santa Fe High for five years. He has applied for the Tigers’ cross country vacancy. Eye of the Tiger merges with high school athletes. Record-breaking chart for runnersBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comDuring track season Columbia High coach Travis Sheppard would send in results and also a list of school records set or broken. It was confusing because, so far as I knew, there is no record book kept by CHS, which has tended to neglect track and field. “Yes, there are no physical records at the school to my knowledge,” Sheppard said when asked where the records came from. “All the records compiled were started in the 90s when flrunners.com started collecting from the meets and coaches. Whatever coaches were around during that time frame sent in records and meet hosts started sending in as far back as possible.” A record list for Columbia from this information was found under MileSplit. Only one on the list dated back to the 1990s — Valerie Jones’ record in the 3-mile run came from 1998. Several records dated back to 2000. Relay records are listed, but not the individual members of the teams that set the records. Individuals who hold a CHS record on the MileSplit list follow.FemaleQ 100 meters — Phoebe Johnson Q 200 meters — Phoebe Johnson Q 400 meters — Lyric Boyd Q 800 meters — Emma Tucker Q 1,500 meters Ashlyn Martin Q 1,600 meters — Emma Tucker Q 3,000 meters — Ashley Jones Q 3,200 meters — Nicole Morse Q 5,000 meters — Emma Tucker Q mile run — Nicole Morse Q 3-mile run — Valerie Jones Q 100-meter hurdles — Jalencia Jenkins Q 100-yard hurdles — Charlie Watson Q 300-meter hurdles — Rochelle Taylor Q triple jump — Tova Adams Q high jump — Christine Bonilla Q long jump — Phoebe Johnson Q shot put — Marquetta MileSplit provides info for results at Columbia High. Sheppard CHS continued on 6B World Cup enthusiasm still highBy JIM VERTUNOAssociated PressAUSTIN, Texas — They turned out by the tens of thousands, some painted in red, white and blue, wav-ing flags and chanting “I Believe!” in city parks, sta-diums and sports bars from coast to coast on Tuesday to watch the U.S. national soccer team play Belgium in the knockout round of the World Cup. Some were die-hard soccer fans. Others were new-comers, spurred on by the rising tide of support for the national team in the world’s biggest tournament. They left without what they wanted: a win. From Texas to Chicago to California, fans watched nervously as the U.S. and Belgium played 90 scoreless minutes before Belgium scored twice in extra time. The U.S. responded with a goal but couldn’t tie the match to send it to penalty kicks. After 120 minutes of soccer, the Americans’ World Cup was over. America, in the middle of its World Cup frenzy, got a reminder that soccer can be a cruel, cruel sport. “It was heartbreaking,” said Adam Graves, a 39-year-old special needs teacher who stood among about 2,000 fans sweat-ing in the 95-degree heat in Austin, Texas, at a city watch party at a park near downtown. “What a roller coaster. Just when you thought we were out of it, we were back in it. That’s what I love about soccer,” Graves said. Others were more distraught. “I thought we were gonna blow through this. I mean, I knew Belgium was good, but I didn’t think we were gonna go out like that,” said Sierra Kaufman, 19, of Redondo Beach, California, who had red, white and blue painted on her face. “Half of these people came here just to dress up in USA stuff but I really wanted them to win,” she said. Tuesday’s game was the fourth for the U.S. in Brazil as it tried to move deeper into the tournament. With every game, the crowds swelled as die-hard soccer fans joined the newcomers. Suddenly, America looked like a soccer-crazed coun-try, as people skipped work and gathered in big crowds and watched the game play out on giant screens. “They’re short people at work and they tried to call me in to work but I told them no way. I’ll let you know on Thursday if they’re mad,” said 25-year-old Alex Sanders, who chose watching the game on a Jumbotron at Redondo Beach in Los Angeles over his extra shift at Sports Authority. Each game pulled in more fans: The U.S.-Portugal game drew 24.7 million television viewers overall, and the 18.22 million who watched on ESPN were the most the network has ever attracted for an event not involving American foot-ball. The Germany game averaged 10.7 million view-ers, making it the third-most watched World Cup game ever on the network. The swelling enthusiasm forced cities to make changes to accommodate crowds. In Chicago, home of the U.S. Soccer federa-tion, officials moved a game watch event from a pub-lic park to Soldier Field to accommodate an expected crowd of 20,000 or more. Even in 90-degree temperatures, fans still flocked to watch the big game. In Washington, there were misting stations at the Die-hard fans, newcomers all enjoy soccer. SOCCER continued on 6B

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JULY 3, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I am a gay man who has had a difficult, distant relation ship with my only broth er, “Bill.” He has made many nasty, homophobic remarks, and my partner, “Jon,” has been excluded from many family gather ings. Because Jon wasn’t welcomed I also did not attend those gatherings, and I endured further wrath because I didn’t. Bill’s daughter has just announced that she is a les bian. His reaction is mysti fying. He has embraced her and her partner and has lovingly included them into the heart of the family. I am happy that my niece has found love and support. I am also jealous that she has a better father than I did a brother. Are my feelings justified? — SAD SIBLING IN VIRGINIA DEAR SAD SIBLING: Of course your feelings are justified. You are human, and your skin isn’t made of Teflon. It’s sad that your brother couldn’t have treated you and Jon with more com passion and understanding. I find it interesting how people’s perspective can radically change when a child of theirs is involved. Now let’s see if your broth er’s attitude toward you changes, and how forgiving you and your partner can be if it does. DEAR ABBY: I bought a friend a gift recently. Her response? “You should have just given me the money because I really need it.” A few years ago, I was going to buy another friend an expensive pair of shoes and she convinced me not to because she said she could buy 10 pairs from a discount store for the amount I was planning to spend. I love giving gifts during the holidays and for birth days, and enjoy choosing things I think my friends might like or need. I hate giving money! Isn’t part of the gift-giving experience for the giver, too? I feel it should be my choice to buy whatever I want for someone, and their response should just be, “Thank you.” It irks me when people dictate to me what I should give them. Am I just being a control freak, or do I have the wrong idea of gift-giving? — GIFT GIVER IN TEXAS DEAR GIFT GIVER: A thoughtful gift giver selects things the recipient can use and enjoy. A grateful recipi ent doesn’t look a gift horse in the mouth and say she’d prefer the cash. However, the woman who convinced you not to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of designer shoes she might not be able to return was, I think, doing both of you a favor. While it’s your prerogative to give whatev er you want to whomever you want, don’t you think it makes more sense to bestow something the person can use and enjoy than to satisfy your ego? DEAR ABBY: Can you settle a dispute for me? When you go up to a house with two doors -a regular door and a screen door -and there is no doorbell, is it proper to open the first door and knock on the sec ond door or is it considered rude? — KNOCK, KNOCK DEAR KNOCK, KNOCK: Because in the absence of a doorbell the only way you can make your presence known would be to knock, open the screen door and knock. Then step back and close the screen door so you’re not intruding on the space of the person who answers it. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let a power struggle daunt you. Step up and use your intellect and quick wit to mastermind your way through any opposition you face. Take control to avoid being controlled. Love is highlighted. Don’t let a past love cause uncertainty. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stretch your imagination when it comes to creative endeavors. Stabilize your domestic sit uation with diplomacy and compromise. Share your feelings, but don’t give in to emotional blackmail. Arguing will be a waste of valuable time. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Listen, but don’t believe everything you hear. Check instruc tions carefully. Someone may be trying to make you look bad. Change can be good, but it has to be for the right reason. Don’t jump impulsively from one situation to another. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your person al secrets will be divulged if you share them with oth ers. Focus on home, family and making your place as accommodating and comfortable as possible. Don’t let a romantic prob lem escalate. Bide your time and observe. Refrain from making assumptions. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your money in a safe place. Don’t feel the need to make a donation. Your generosity will be your downfall. Put your money, energy and effort into home improvements love and romance. Charity begins at home. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t take on any added responsibility. You will have enough to deal with and want to do your very best to avoid criti cism. Work should take top priority along with avoiding any miscommunications with colleagues. Don’t make impulsive purchases or donations. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your work will be scrutinized, so do the best job possible. Problems at home will occur if someone is pushy. Don’t argue when you can walk away from a no-win situation. Focus on self-improvement, not on trying to change others. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take an interest in different cul tures, lifestyles or philos ophies. Your ability to size matters up and take action will be impressive. Your persuasive nature will allow you to influence others and bring about positive change. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t expect to get a pat on the back for the job you do. Do the best you can and walk away. Make plans to social ize or to do something that will help ease your stress or help you relax. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep life simple and stick to what you know and do best. Controversy will lead to additional challenges that you can do without. Don’t argue with anyone who can influence your life person ally, professionally, legally or financially. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make per sonal improvement alter ations that will help build your confidence. Look for a better position or consider starting a small home-based business. If you are care ful and invest wisely, you shouldn’t have to worry about finances. Romance is in the stars. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Accept the inevitable. The out come will be in your favor, so don’t get all worked up over nothing. Now is not the time to cause a scene. Look at your options and expand your interests where it will be most bene ficial for you. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Homophobic brother changes tune when daughter comes out Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

That wasnt a problem at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where thousands watched the match in the air-conditioned home of the Dallas Cowboys. Crowds sang the national anthem together and it was hard to find a seat at game time at Freedom Plaza. Marie Davenport, 76, set up a folding chair outside of the main crowd but with a good view of the big screen. I think that after this World Cup Americans are sold on soccer, said Davenport, who thought the scene and crowds enthusi asm made it a better choice than her living room. President Barack Obama left the confines of the White House Oval office and joined about 200 staff ers in an Executive Office Building auditorium to watch the second half of the game. I believe! he exclaimed as he walked in at the front of the hall. I believe! He was quickly joined by a cho rus of I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win! As he took a seat in the auditoriums front row, he said sheepishly, I was wor ried that if I walked in and Belgium scored, Id get in trouble. The loss ended the party for the U.S. fans but not before some agonizing moments as the Americans fought back from two goals down early in extra time. In Austin, every save by U.S. goal keeper Tim Howard drew a rousing cheer. When Belgium final ly scored, a small group of Belgium fans chanted and cheered as hundreds of U.S. fans started leaving, only to come racing back when Julian Greens goal pulled the U.S. within 2-1. When the final whistle blew, Graves, the school teacher wearing a U.S. soc cer jersey, shrugged his shoulders and sighed. He marveled at the turnout of fans in Austin and else where around the country. I remember watching games in 1998 at home. There was no point going to a bar because they wouldnt have the game on, Graves said. Howards best not enough to save U.S. World Cup run Associated Press SALVADOR, Brazil Tim Howard kept the ball out of the net with slides, with dives and with leaps. He couldnt do it forever. With the United States trying to reach the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 2002, he saved 12 of Belgiums shots in regulation to keep the game scoreless. But Kevin De Bruyne scored in the 93rd minute and Romelu Lukaku in the 105th to build a two-goal lead for the Red Devils, who hung on for a 2-1 win Tuesday that eliminated the Americans in the sec ond round for the second straight World Cup. Howard tried to sound modest. Im just trying to do all the things that have got ten me here and gotten us here, he said.
