See opinion,4A By EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comEvery day is a victory and a struggle for Jonathan Westberry. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011. The 51-year-old had been a regular patient at the Community Cancer Center of North Florida since his diagnosis of Stage IIIA lung cancer. He was referred to Dr. Waseem Khan for chemotherapy and continued care for his on-going treatment after receiving radiation therapy. For three years Khan oversaw Westberrys care, closely monitoring his cancer, which became inactive. But on Tuesday, that all changed. Changes to Medicaid caused Westberry to lose his doctor. He now will have to travel roughly 50 miles from his home to Gainesville to seek medical treatment one to five times per month. The changes stem from Floridas initiative to privatize the Medicaid program, which lawmakers said consumed the state budget. Enrollment in managed care for the majority of Medicaid recipients, more than half of whom are children, started in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties. Medicaid changes hit home Local cancer patient will suffer due to privatization, his caregiver says. SVTA will see budget cuts due to changes. MEDICAID continued on 6A SEE STORY, Page 6A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCity officials say that former Lake City Police Officer Staci Brownfield has been fired after all despite what her union representative claims. Gary Evans, Brownfields Fraternal Order of Police union representative, said the city violated its personnel policy when LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore, rather than Wendell Johnson, city manager, terminated Brownfield. City Manager Wendell Johnson said Police Chief Argatha Gilmore does in fact have the authority to terminate employees in the police department. In an interview last week, Evans argued that only the city manager has the authority to terminate Brownfield based on city personnel policy. However, Johnson said the city charter granted him authority to delegate power to Gilmore to terminate police department employees. Brownfield was terminated Monday, June 23, after she spent more than seven months on paid administrative leave following a DUI arrest last November. A press release issued by the Lake City Police Department on June 25 said Brownfield was terminated by Gilmore. Brownfield filed a complaint through the citys human resources department on June 26, contesting findings released through a departmental internal investigation sustaining the charges of conduct unbecoming an officer and violation of Florida law. Johnson said he is withholding comment on the complaint because City says Brownfields fired, despite union claims Charter gives city manager right to delegate firing. Browneld2 shot; suspect soughtBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comTwo people are hospitalized and a local man is on the run after a Saturday morning argument at the Washington Street Elks Lodge escalated into a shooting. The man allegedly shot an unarmed security guard and female patron after he was escorted from the building following an argument with two other women. Deputies believe the shooter is Robert Dell Church, 29, of Lake City. He is described as a black man standing 5 10 inches tall and weighing about 235 pounds. Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Columbia County Sheriffs deputies responded to the Elks Lodge, 1688 NE Washington Street, where two people had been shot. The initial investigation revealed an argument between two unknown females and Church began inside the lodge at closing. The on-site security guard attempted to separate the parties involved and escort them outside. Once outside Church fell to the ground at some point.

A group of people enjoy the fireworks display at the Columbia County Fairgrounds on Friday. More than 40,000 people are thought to have attended the annual event.By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Fourth of July celebration started off with a bang. And no, it wasnt because of fireworks. Those didnt start until later. It was because of how many people showed up for the annual event most of them early. Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dennille Decker said this years crowd was 30-40 percent bigger than usual, putting estimated attendance figures in the 40,000 range. Some showed up as early as 4 p.m. even though the event, sponsored by the Lake City Reporter, wasnt scheduled to begin until 5, she said. By 5:30 p.m., the festivities were in full swing, and the fairgrounds were teeming with people some dressed from head to toe in red, white and blue. One little girl wore a red, white and blue striped sleeveless dress that had a large red satin bow at the neckline. On the opposite end of the live music sat a sea of brightly-colored bounce houses. Allie Wilson, 8, said the bounce houses were her favorite part of the night. That and the food. In between the bounce houses and the music were the vendors. Perfect weather draws 40,000 to fireworks show Visitors appeared at fairgrounds as early as 4 p.m. Friday.

Joey Chestnut gets the mustard belt and fiancee NEW YORK High-ranking chow hound Joey Jaws Chestnut dropped to one knee and proposed to his longtime girlfriend before Fridays annual hot dog eating contest, then packed away 61 franks and buns to hold onto his covet ed mustard yellow winners belt. The San Jose, California, resident fell far short of his record last year of 69 dogs and buns, but he still easily beat second-place finisher Matt Stonie, also of San Jose, who downed 56. Winning was the only option, the newly engaged champion said afterward. I wasnt going to taint today with a loss. Chestnut took a quick timeout before the annual Nathans Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island to make it official with his long time girlfriend, Neslie Ricasa, who is also a competitive eater. In the womens division, defend ing champion Sonya Black Widow Thomas lost her title to Miki Sudo. Sudo, of Las Vegas, wolfed down 34 franks and buns. Thomas, of Alexandria, Virginia, devoured 27 3/4. Chestnut has won eight times in a row. In 2010, his former rival Takeru Kobayashi refused to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating, the food equivalent of the NFL, and was banned from competition. This year, the Japanese native, nick named the Tsunami, competed against five other eaters at a separate event in Manhattan in a quest to down the most hot dogs without buns in 10 minutes. He was victorious in that bun-less eat-off, downing 113 frankfurters, an event spokeswoman said.Hospital music man hits a healing note ORMOND BEACH Marvin Sherzer didnt touch the piano keys for more than four decades. Today, the 67-year-old certified music practitioner provides soothing sounds to patients recovering at Florida Hospital Oceanside after taking a 46-year hiatus from the instrument. Therapeutic music is played at the patients bedside to relieve pain and anxiety. We bring a human touch to a patient who is alone, Sherzer said. Hes in a strange environment. Hes overly concerned about his health. Without any pharmaceutical or any invasive pro cedures, we can bring him distraction, comfort and enrichment. The son of a musician who worked for Disney, Sherzer traded the piano for the pitching mound when he was a teenager growing up in Philadelphia. He played two years in the minor leagues and then went on to have a career in the insurance business. During that time, he never thought of the piano an instrument his father loved and he had learned as a child. Then his dad entered hospice in 2008. A musician played the harp during his fathers dying days, and it soothed him. When his mother died a year later, Sherzer started taking lessons. Remembering the positive effect music had on his father in hospice, Sherzer studied to become a certified music practitioner. His role is more than entertainer. He plays music at the patients bedside specifically tailored to the condition. Music has the power to relax and dis tract, Sherzer said What other modality can put a baby to sleep like Brahms Lullaby and inspire men during times of war? he said.Nicole Brown Simpsons father Louis Brown dies DANA POINT Louis Brown Jr., the father of Nicole Brown Simpson, has died at his Southern California home, a family attorney said Saturday. He was 90. Brown died Thursday in the seaside community of Dana Point, attorney Natasha Roit said in an email. A state ment issued on behalf of the family did not include a cause of death. His wife, Judi, and children were with him. It was his wish to remain in his home with those he loved, Roit said. Brown served in World War II as a pilot and married in Switzerland after the war, the statement said. Two children preceded him in death, including Nicole Brown Simpson, who was slashed to death in 1994 with friend Ronald Goldman. Her former husband, O.J. Simpson, was acquitted of murder in the high-profile trial. Scripture of the Day It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JULY 6, 2014 3A By EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comWhen Edward Abdon looks at Gwen Lake, all he sees is decay. Since purchasing his home at 837 NW Palm Drive in 2012, he has seen algae invade the onceclear lake and sandbars expand from piling dirt. He does not know the source of the deterioration, but he is sure of its consequences. Its getting worse and worse, Abdon said. Somethings going on. An approximately 40 foot by 40 foot sandbar has formed near the edge of the lake, making it an easy target for litter and garbage. And as the sandbar grew, so did the algae bloom. More than half of the lake is now covered in green. New resident Donald Strand said his family was disappointed at the state of Gwen Lake. One of the reasons we bought this property was to enjoy the view of the lake, he said. Walt Davis has lived on Gwen Lake since 1999 and noticed a shift in 2006. Thats when the issues began, he said. Its getting run down, Davis said. Weve never had that issue before. Its become a complete eyesore. Scott Berman is concerned its an environmental issue. Gwen Lake has always had an algae bloom, but the last few years has been extreme, he said. Its disturbing, Berman said. It doesnt look right. The neighborhood couldnt pinpoint exactly what was causing these changes, but has tried to get multiple agencies involved. The city, local Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency and Suwannee River Water Management were contacted by concerned residents, including Davis, Berman and Abdon. It is unclear exactly who is responsible for the lake, and this legal limbo has hindered any real progress. The city owns half of the area around Gwen Lake and maintains it as a park. The lake itself is a murkier matter. A similar problem arose last year with Lake Montgomery. Ownership of the lake was in question but litter had become a major issue. The Lake City Public Works Department and the local FWC worked together to clean rubbish and trash out of the lake. Public Works Director Thomas Henry blames Tropical Storm Debby for Gwen Lakes newly-formed sandbars. He said his department has been trying to get other agencies like the Suwannee River Water Management District to partner with them for a unified clean up. We werent too successful with that, Henry said. The high cost of a clean-up has kept Gwen Lake in its current state. Just to remove the added dirt would cost upwards of $90,000-100,000, Henry said. Lake City resident Tracie Hair has lived on the lake for 54 years and remembers swimming in it as a child. Gwen Lake is small compared to others in Lake City its only about an acre in size but for the people who live around it, Gwen Lake is a pretty big deal. They think the lake is trivial, but its not trivial for the people who live there, Hair said.Sandbar, algae forming on lakeBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCity officials are considering setting a tentative millage rate for the 2015 fiscal budget during Monday nights city council meeting as they begin working on finalizing next years budget. City Manager Wendell Johnson is proposing a millage rate of 3.9816 mills, the same as fiscal year 2014. The information will be sent to the Columbia County Property Appraiser for Truth In Millage (TRIM) notices that will be sent to homeowners before the end of August. According to city documents, the TRIM notice requires that within 35 days from the date the property appraiser certified the city tax roll, June 26, the city must advise the property appraiser of the proposed millage rate, roll-back rate, as well as time, date and location of the tentative budget hearing. The city staff is proposing the 2014 fiscal year millage rate of 3.9816 for planning purposes. In addition to the tentative millage rate, city officials will also review a TRIM schedule, detailing upcoming meetings to discuss the 2015 fiscal year budget. A workshop on the general fund budget has been scheduled for 4 p.m. Aug. 6. In other business, the council will hold a workshop regarding selecting a special magistrate for code enforcement services. The workshop will take place 6 p.m. in council chambers. The meeting and budget hearing are set for 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall in City Council Chambers, 205 N. Marion Avenue.Officials look to set millage rate at meeting City manager proposes same rate as 2014. Its unclear whats causing problems on Gwen Lake. Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterLake City resident Edward Abdon stands on a sandbar that has formed inside Gwen Lake. Abdon, who has been living in the area for about three years, said he used to see groups of school children play inside the park along the lake, people fishing in the lake and non-polluted water. What a waste to let it get bad like this, he said. If the city cant fix this then get the state or the federal government to do something. Would you want your kids around this? Landscaper Andrew Ensey, 21, skims off a layer of algae from a dock on Gwen Lake. It is kind of nasty, said Ensey, who used to fish in the lake for bream and catfish.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man, arrested Tuesday, faces felony assault charges for alleged ly throwing warm grease on his girlfriend during an argument. Irving Jeffrey White Jr., 24, U.S. Highway 441, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $2,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Sgt. H. Buthuis and John Snipes were dispatched to an a room at Angel Cove Motel on U.S. Highway 441 in reference to a disturbance Tuesday afternoon. When they arrived they were met by a woman, crying hysterically, who was the victim in the incident, the report said. The woman explained that she and her boyfriend had an argument and he was still in the room and refused to come out or let her in. The deputies announced their presence at the door several times, but White had the door locked and would not open it, reports said. When White finally opened the door he was ordered to the ground, handcuffed and detained in the police cruiser. While speaking to the victim, who said Irving never hit her and refused to press charges, Snipes noticed the upper left side of her shirt was wet and remnants of an unknown substance were stuck to her. The woman said White threw warm grease on her during the argument. The motel manager told deputies he saw the woman running from the room yelling for help and he called authorities. Snipes reported he didnt see any injuries on the woman, who refused EMS treatment and did not allow authorities to photograph the grease on the upper part of her body. White refused to cooperate with the investigation and the deputies took him to jail, the report said.Man threw warm grease on girlfriend, authorities report White CCSO responded to cry for help at Angel Cove Motel. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man with an active warrant for his arrest for multiple drug sales was apprehended at a local hotel Wednesday by Columbia County Sheriffs Office, who reportedly found drugs and drug paraphernalia in his room. Franklin Lamont Rolle, 32, of 187 Martin Luther King St., was charged with possession of cocaine and possession and/or use of drug equipment in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $256,000 bond. According to CCSO reports, deputies received information that Rolle was staying at the Ramada Inn and they went to his room. Just as authorities were about to knock on the door, they reported the door opened and they immediately recognized Franklin and took him into custody. Rolle was reportedly in the room with his girlfriend and asked if he could give the contents of his pockets to her. As authorities walked into the room, they reportedly detected the scent of burnt marijuana. They also reported seeing a brown paper bag and a razor bladeand noted the razor blade had a white substance on it that was consistent with cocaine/ crack. One of the deputies looked inside and saw a large amount of crack inside, the report said. The drug task force was contacted and after he was read his constitutional rights, Rolle reportedly admitted the crack was his. No other evidence was found after authorities searched the room and Rolle was taken to jail, while his girlfriend was released.CCSO: Local man wanted for drug sale apprehended Rolle From staff reportsATLANTA, Ga.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org C ity Manager Wendell Johnsons ver-sion of the facts surrounding removal of up to 40 trees at New Beginnings Restoration Church is far-fetched and a little hard to swallow. Frankly, we dont buy it. The city council, often timid in its dealings with the city manager, must finally stand up and demand answers. According to Johnson, a city worker took it upon himself to uproot the trees rather than just trim them some months back. But rather than be cross with the man, who under Johnsons version of the facts violated a direct order, the city manager seemed almost pleased. In an email to the city council Monday, Johnson said the worker likely felt hed be sav-ing the city time and money by doing something other than he was told. Johnson said he had no misgivings about what the man did or how he did it. Apparently, we are left to believe, this is how things work at City Hall. A worker has free rein to do as he pleases if, in his view, the orders he was given were wrong or might be ignored with better results. No need to check with a supervisor. Just do it, then win public praise from the city manager. Not likely.And no one else involved tells a story even remotely resembling Johnsons. City Public Works Director Thomas Henry made clear he was ordered by Johnson to have the trees removed. And the churchs owner says trimming the trees was never what he had in mind. The aim from the start was to uproot them all then haul them off. The real issue here isnt the use of tax dollars to help a local church. Under different circumstances we might applaud such a move. Of course, in this case the church is owned by a man who says he didnt really need city assis-tance because his father County Commission Chairman Ron Williams, a local builder could just as easily have lent him equipment for the job. The real issue is the lack of transparency from the city managers office. Contradictory stories. Facts that just dont mesh.Nothing in this convoluted tale makes a whole lot of sense, and in the end, Johnsons version of events simply doesnt stand up to scrutiny. Johnson deems this matter very trivial.We consider the credibility of our public officials anything but trivial. The city council needs to show some courage and do what it takes to get to the truth. A lack of credibility at City Hall When Obama does it, does that make it legal? Its cops vs. dogs in the backyardH undreds of anguished pet owners gathered last week at the headquarters of the Salt Lake Police Department to demand justice for a dog. They were upset by the shooting of a 2-year-old Weimaraner named Geist. Weimaraners are typi-cally tall, elegantly gray, and usually gentle enough. A few days ago, Officer Brett Olsen, searching for a missing child, hopped a fence at a sub-urban home and leaped into the backyard. The dog approached, jealous of his turf, and instead of retreating, the officer shot and killed the animal. Thousands condemned the officers decision on Internet sites, sent condolences to the dogs owner and demanded that the officer be punished, arguing that the dog was only doing what such dogs do, and an officer who panics at the sound of a bark is the wrong man in the wrong place at the wrong time. Such incidents are growing more common as homeowners, fright-ened by crime, arm themselves with big dogs. Shootings have been reported in Filer, Idaho; Columbia, Mo.; Decatur, Tenn.; Austin, Texas; Harrisonburg, Va.; and New York City. Not all the dogs are big dogs. In Baltimore, officers killed Nala, a 7-year-old Shar-Pei last month. Responding to a call that a small dog had bitten a woman, the cops attempted to corral the pooch with a stick and piece of string. Frustrated, one officer eventually yelled, Im going to gut this thing, and slit the dogs throat with a knife as another officer held it down. Last week, police in Mason County, W.Va., shot and killed Willie Pete, a small, arthritic mix of a beagle and a basset hound not exactly a fearsome combina-tion. Police searching for a criminal suspect went into a backyard, and Willie Pete woke up from a nap on the porch. An officer shot at Willie Pete when he growled and bared his teeth, and the shot went wide. (The policeman obviously needs a little gun control.) The dog ran toward the house, and the owner pleaded with the cops to cease fire, but they didnt, and three more shots killed the dog. Some dogs are in fact dangerous, but many cops seem eager to shoot when they dont have to, and a few shoot because they panic. Radley Balko, author of Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of Americas Police Forces, tracked more than 100 news accounts of puppycide in 2012 alone. Mail carriers encounter dogs far more frequently than police offi-cers, and they usually handle such encounters without killing. Every year mail carriers get two hours video training to learn how to read a dogs body language, distract a dog with a toy, subdue aggression with a calm voice command or, if worse comes to worse, incapacitate it with pepper spray. The Humane Society, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and other organizations make similar train-ing available to law enforcement agencies at no cost. Dogs can be frightening, and some, like pit bulls, are instinctively vicious. But a little training can teach cops to know the difference, and resolve an incident before it becomes violent. Q Washington Times P resident Barack Obama, whose power abuses have played a role in the imperil-ment of tens of thousands of children and earned him slaps by the Supreme Court and the threat of a suit by House Republicans, has promised more of the same. If Congress doesnt give him what he wants on immigration reform, he said he is going to change things himself. What that could well mean is unilaterally instituting a broad amnesty program of his aides devising. Its the kind of performance you would more likely expect on a Saturday Night Live stage than in the Rose Garden. There he nev-ertheless was, telling us America cannot wait forever for them to act. By them he meant House Republicans, by act he meant pas-sage of sweeping legislation that meets his approval and by forever he meant passage is unlikely this year. While no one can say for sure all that comes next, a New York Times story says the administration may give work permits and protection from deportation to millions of immigrants now in the country. Except that it would be much fur-ther reaching, this move could ren-der something akin to the two-year, renewable, constitutionally ques-tionable amnesty already granted by Obama in 2012 to more than a half million immigrant youths who came here illegally as children. This presidential venture is now seen as a factor encouraging great crowds of poor children unaccompa-nied by parents to come to the U.S. border. They come mostly from Central America, were sometimes escaping criminal violence but seem to have thought in many instances that amnesty applied to them and may yet see a new amnesty grant that does. Many have had to walk through desert in temperatures over 100 degrees. Many of the girls have been raped. The U.S. Border Patrol can do little else but take care of them. What might a second amnesty do even as Obama brings more agents from the interior of the country to the border? The larger point is that here we have just one of numerous instanc-es of the president flirting openly with autocracy. He acts as an unac-countable king of the hill in myriad ways: how he releases terrorists; regulatory overkill, and endlessly rewriting laws with nothing passed by Congress, for instance. Jonathan Turley, a liberal professor of consti-tutional law, sees a vast usurpation of authority in which Obama gets away with misdeeds even President Richard Nixon only dreamt about. For the sake of a constitutionally ordered, democratic, free republic, Turley has been banging drums to get more reaction from Congress and the courts. Just lately, there has been a flicker of judicial hope in a couple of recent Supreme Court decisions, such as a unanimous verdict that recess appointments bypassing the Senate will not stand because the Senate was not in recess. Since most Democrats wont sign on, Congress has done little to restore the crucial system of checks and balances, but here comes Republican House Speaker John Boehner with the threat of a suit to stop the usurpation. The responses have been varied. Turley is all for it, some scholars say the House has proper standing and then there are those resorting to irrationality, such as in comparing numbers of executive orders signed by different presidents. Obama comes in low on the graph, but these orders were not all created equal, as cleverer souls note; many by Obama were hugely awful while many by other presi-dents were perfectly OK. An even worse argument chiefly from the left is that Obama has had to act because Congress wont do what he wants. In other words, effectuating arguable Obama policies is an end that justifies the catastrophic means of ignoring rule of law. But did Obama really cross that line? When a president does it, that means it is not illegal, said Nixon, who resigned 40 years ago next month. Whoever thought there would come a day when so many liberals echoed the sentiment?

The long term care pop ulation, which includes those 65 and over who reside in nursing homes, recently completed enrollment. State officials deliberately enrolled a few regions at a time to ensure better control. Medicaids transition has left some patients, like Westberry, out of luck and out of a doctor. Health advocates have worried about lapses in care during the transition, especially because the program is built on a con troversial five-county pilot where many insurance companies dropped out and patients struggled to access doctors and treat ments. Khan is no longer in Westberrys network. Westberrys ex-wife, Rebecca Deese, has helped him through his cancer treatment. She lost both her mother and father to lung cancer. She fears changing doc tors will negatively impact Westberry. Cancer care is built on continuity of care, Deese said. All the studies show this. Westberry didnt feel well enough to be inter viewed last week. And with signs that his cancer may return, Deese worries about her ex-hus bands current options. Fourteen insurance companies signed five-year contracts to provide in the regular Medicaid program. Sunshine Health, Staywell and Prestige Health Choice have the largest presence statewide. Insurance com panies say privatization is a long-term process, and while it requires signifi cant investments initially, theyll ultimately save the state money in the long run. The first year is real ly about making sure the transition goes smoothly and the subsequent years focused on driving qual ity of care and savings, said Jason Delimitros, Sunshines chief operat ing officer. Critics worry the state is abdicating care of its most vulnerable residents to for-profit companies with little oversight of how the money is being spent. For Deese and Westberry, this change is the beginning of an espe cially difficult transition to finding long-term care. Cancer is a cruel, pain ful, debilitating and insidi ous illness that shows no discrimination, Deese said. It does not make sense to further compli cate the situation by mak ing medical care neces sary to survival extremely hard to get, even for some one under disability.

MEDICAIDContinued From 1A SVTA sees budget cut as result of changes to Medicaid Some sold sweet tea and pulled pork sandwiches. Other non-food vendors sold necklaces, purses and knick-knacks. And some werent selling things, but were promoting businesses. Ayana Earnest, 17, who takes martial arts classes at a local academy, was there with other children from her class her mar tial arts family as she calls them doing demonstra tions for the public. She said she enjoys get ting to practice in front of the crowds. I like the experience of getting to show off what Ive learned, Earnest, a yellow belt, said. When you hear all the applause, you know your hard work is paying off. Its hot but very satisfy ing, she said. Earnest and her friends werent the only children volunteering at the festiv ities. Outside the gates, about a hundred yards away, were other high school students also working the event. Members of the Lake City Police Department Explorers program, a program that allows high school students to shadow actual officers, were park ing the cars. P.J Lindboe and Zulema Quiterio were two of the students doing that. Lindboe said he did it last year and enjoyed it. And the good part was they still got to see the fireworks, he said. Decker said the chamber of commerce makes a dona tion to the Explorer pro gram for the students help. But before the fire works began at 9:20 p.m. and before Lindboe and Quiterio could head inside, more people came, and more music was played. There were six individual performers throughout the evening. Steve Briscoe, a cham ber of commerce board member who was in charge of the music, said some of the singers are Lake City natives. Others came from as far away as Jacksonville. But the part people looked forward to and enjoyed the most was the fireworks. Before they began, the chamber announced that the fireworks show was dedicated to former Tourist Development Director Harvey Campbell, who recently passed away. Decker said the chamber chose to do that because before the chamber took over, Campbell was the one in charge of the event. Decker said he taught her and everyone at the chamber how to run the show down to every lit tle detail. Nicole Sheldon, who watched the fireworks, said they were hands down her favorite part. I have always loved fire works since I was a kid, she said. Its like the one thing that hasnt changed since I was a kid. As for why the record-breaking crowd, Decker said she wasnt sure. Since the Fourth fell on a Friday, she was worried more people would be going out of town and the crowd might dwindle. However, it was the first time in four years it hadnt rained on the holiday, so that might have been a factor. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterThe fireworks show begins with a bang on Friday during the July 4th La ke City Celebration.

Jadwin Daughtry, 1, of Palatka, plays with a beach ball during the July 4th Lake City Celebration on Friday. it has not been finalized. According to Section 404 of the City of Lake City Charter, regarding the powers and duties of the city manager, the city manager can authorize an administrative officer to exer cise some of his powers. The charter states: The city manager ... shall appoint, and when he deems it nec essary for the good of ser vice, suspend or remove all city employees and appoint ive administrative officers provided for by or under this Charter. He may authorize any administrative officer, who is subject to his direction and supervision, to exercise these powers with respect to subordinates in that officers department, office or agency. BROWNFIELDContinued From 1A County Sheriffs Office public information officer, said its not clear whether Church fell to the ground during a struggle with the security guard or because they all were being pushed out the door, he said. Church then reported ly went to a vehicle in the parking lot, retrieved a handgun and returned, allegedly shooting the security guard once before fleeing the area. The bullet passed through the security guard and struck a female bystander in the leg. The suspect was seen leaving in a black car, but the make and model was not given, Smith said. The security guard, who authorities have not identified, was taken to UF Health Shands Hospital by Lifeguard ambulance. He was shot in the lower portion of his body, though his condition is currently unknown. However, any gunshot is serious, Smith said. The wounded woman was taken by her husband to Lake Shore Hospital. She was later transferred to Shands at UF. She had to be trans ferred to Shands for sur gery which makes it seri ous, Smith said. The CCSO crime scene unit processed the scene as deputies and detectives interviewed witnesses. The investigation remains open. It was reported the suspect only (fired one) shot, but the investigation is still on going, Smith said, noting the handgun has not been recovered. The sheriffs office has issued a Be On the Look Out alert for Church and authorities are actively seeking his whereabouts. According to infor mation from the Florida Department of Corrections website, Church has been in prison on two occasions, once for 18 months and the other was for nine months. He was incarcerated on charges including grand theft, forgery, fleeing and eluding a law enforce ment officer and leaving the scene of a crash with injuries in Hamilton and Alachua counties. DOC says Church has a teardrop murder cross tattoo on his face, a quar ters cross on his left arm and a granger tattoo on his right arm. Anyone who has infor mation on Churchs whereabouts or the shoot ing is asked to contact the CCSO at (386) 719-2005 or Crime Stoppers of Columbia County at (386) 754-7099. SHOOTINGContinued From 1A PATRICK SCOTT/ Special to the ReporterA Dodge Ram truck sits near the entrance of the B&S Combs Elks Lodge located at 1688 NE Washington St., where a shooting occurred early Saturday morning. NashBy EMILY STANTONestanton@lakecityreporter.comAnother conse quence of Medicaid privatization is a large budget cut for the Suwannee Valley Transit Authority. SVTA used to receive a $173,000 stipend every month in part to bring Medicaid clients to their medical appointments within Hamilton, Columbia and Suwannee Counties. Now, cost is negotiated per mile with health mainte nance organizations (HMOs). This brings in sig nificantly less money. SVTA will have to be more frugal, said Bucky Nash, Columbia County Commissioner and SVTA board. The budget restraints arent all bad, as they will force SVTA to have accountability and and be more effi cient, Nash said. There are a lot of challenges, but I think theyre overco meable, he said. The number of drivers is expect ed to decrease, but hourly wages will not change.
Apastime that is gaining momentum in Florida and around the country is foraging for edibles in the wild. The UF/IFAS Extension in Columbia County has even given a few fun presentations on this topic, but the speakers are deliberate in telling participants not to eat anything they hav-ent researched and positively identified. In my opinion, this is a fascinating topic, but a very tricky and potentially danger-ous pastime. Some innocent looking plants are deadly if eaten or can cause severe illnesses. In order to be safe for consumption, some plants need to be prepared according to specific guidelines. Otherwise, these same plants are poisonous. One part of a particular plant may be safe, nutritious, and delicious to eat while another part of the same plant can be a killer. Even if someone has studied up on plant recognition, there are look-alikes out there that can easily be mis-taken for the edibles. Pokeweed, for example, is used traditionally to make poke salad. It is a potentially danger-ous plant that must be cooked several times in fresh water baths before eating. The UF/ IFAS document http://edis.ifas. ufl.edu/pdffiles/AG/AG25400. pdf discusses the toxic effects of pokeweed on farm animals, but also gives directions for cooking greens and preparing seeds for planting. The consumer must be able to positively identify the plant that is harvested, and then follow the directions for proper food preparation. A plant forager must be very selective about locations where edible plants are collect-ed. Plants along roadsides or fields may have been exposed to insecticides or herbicides. Even lawns may have had pes-ticide or weed-and-feed applica-tions. Avoid harvesting plants near roads and parking lots as the ground will be tainted with heavy metals and hydrocarbons. Never harvest where there is a possibility of animal feces con-tamination. Even wild edibles can harbor pathogens that cause foodborne illnesses. We had two different samples of wild plums brought in to the office for identification just last week. The landowners were wise in obtaining information before allowing their children to consume the fruit. There are three similar wild plums that are native to this part of Florida, and all are edible. The wild plum in the photo is Prunus umbellata, better known as flat-woods plum or hog plum. The ripened fruit will turn purple, can be tart or sweet, and makes good jelly. Chickasaw plum (P. angus-tifolia), American plum (P. Americana), and flatwoods plum are all small trees with early, white blooms. The Chickasaw and American plums are dis-tinguished by mature fruit that turns yellow instead of purple. They can all be used in the land-scape as deck trees, specimens, container plants or small space trees. Except for the occasional tent caterpillar, nothing much competes for the edible fruit from these trees. Forage safely and know about a wild plant before it goes in your mouth. Dont rely on the opinion of someone else. Do your own research with trust-worthy resources so you can be confident in your own judgment. Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JULY 6, 2014 7AAt Florida Gateway College, we do all that we can to answer any questions you may have. Were open five days a week though thats currently four days, as were on a summer work schedule until August 8 and our primary, first-response offices like Admissions, Financial Aid, and Registrar are open late at least once a week. If you cant physically make it to campus, we have numerous trained staff who can answer any question by phone, and department e-mail addresses can be found on the Florida Gateway College website. But, even with all of those ave-nues available, we know that people still have questions that are going unanswered. Whether its because theyre unable to make it to campus during office hours or dont feel comfortable asking certain ques-tions in an office setting, we know these questions may be what keeps them from enrolling at our college. We understand that, and thats why we are going on the road this summer for our bi-annual Exploring College events. FGC representatives will visit each of the counties in our five-county service district Columbia, Baker, Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union to provide information about admissions, registration, financial aid, and college programs to those who may have questions. All of these events are scheduled to take place this month. The Exploring College events provide potential students or parents with an opportunity to learn what the college has to offer and what they need to do to begin making prog-ress toward their educational goals. And the Exploring College sessions arent stuffy or formal theyre very relaxed, beginning with a short presentation that is followed by a question and answer session. Because our district is pretty large twice the size of Rhode Island, if you were wondering we realize that hosting these events at the col-lege could be difficult for many folks who are at the furthest reaches of our district. A drive from Trenton or Bell can be somewhat of a trek, especially if you work a 9-5 job. Thats why were coming to you! The first set of events will take place this week in Columbia, Dixie, and Gilchrist counties. The Columbia County Exploring College event, set Monday, July 7, will take place at the Wilson S. Rivers Library and Media Center here at the college. The next night, on July 8, well be in Gilchrist County at the FGC Gilchrist Center. On Thursday, July 10, well be in Dixie County at the Florida Gateway College Dixie Center. All three of these events will take place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The following week, on Monday, July 14, FGC representatives will be in Union County at the Union County Public Library. This event will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. An event in Baker County will be scheduled in the coming days and announced at a later date. Theres no need to RSVP or reg-ister in advance for these events just show up with any questions you may have and well do our best to answer them. And if we cant provide an answer right then, well definitely get back to you as soon as possible! If you have any questions, call FGC Recruiter Amanda Schulz at (386) 754-4246.

By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterFORT WHITE Finding something for the children to do can be a challenge in the summer, especially in a small town like Fort White. Its been a little easier since June 9, when the Fort White Branch Library kicked off its summer reading and activity program. Not every child enjoys reading programs, but the library has activities for the youngster who enjoys doing more than listening. Among those is LEGO Builders, which meets on Tuesdays at 3 pm. The program is open to any child old enough to handle standard-sized LEGOs safely but is recommended for children age 6 and over. The LEGO activity is the brainchild of Fort White Branch Library librarian Patti Street, who started a similar program in 2013 only to see it fizzle out. We used to meet on Saturdays, but attendance fell off to practically nothing when spring sports got into swing, she said. I decided to move it to an hour when it would be useful as an after-school activity when school gets under way. The main attraction of the program is the opportunity for children to engage in unstructured, creative play in a supervised setting. We used to put up suggestions for projects on the dryerase board in the room but we found it wasnt necessary, Street said. The children have their own ideas. In fact, the children organize their play quite effectively and with surprisingly few conflicts. Weve had up to 50 kids here at once with no problems, Street said. I cant recall ever having a squabble in here. Some children prefer to work alone and some like to collaborate with a friend, but they all find ways to get along and share. At the end of the one-hour play period, each childs creation is labeled with the childs name and placed on one of the tables in the room. He or she isnt finished? Not a problem the project can be resumed during the next session. The only rule is that before a child starts a new project, his or her old one must be dismantled so that the pieces can be reused. Funding for LEGO Builders comes from the Friends of the Library resale program, but it has cost less than $100. I had to buy some special pieces mostly bases, doors, and windows but most of what we have came from donations and area thrift stores, Street said. We arent looking for complete kits to build special projects, so we can use practically anything as long as the pieces are in good shape. Of course, more donations are always welcome. Donations can be made at the Branch Library during normal operating hours.LEGO Builders in full swing Fort White Library offers program for non-bookworms.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comPlay time is over for Columbia Highs football team. The Tigers return to practice on Monday and head coach Brian Allen hopes to see enthusiasm from all his players. Weve had time for rest and recuperation mentally and physically, Allen said. It gave families an abil-ity to do a vacation without missing any practice time. Giving them that week off the first part of July, the Fourth of July weekend, and then right at the end before the fall camp, its an opportunity to give fami-lies a few shots at vaca-tion. Its an opportunity for the coaches to sit back and enjoy time with their fami-lies as well. With only a few more weeks before the pressure gets turned up and football season kicks into high gear, Allen knows this is the time to mold a champion. You want to see the guys energetic and enthu-siastic to come back, Allen said. Theres only three weeks to get in better con-dition. Then its game time in August. We want to see guys grow in the scheme of things. We expect to see all of that. Its an opportunity to get all the kids in the county free physicals. We do that July 16. I want to see that. Physicals begin at 5:30 p.m. at the high school. Besides the every day conditioning against each other, Allen said the Tigers will continue to go against other teams in 7-on-7 drills. It gives you the ability to work some different things against different defenses, Allen said. I think we see the best of the best every day in practice. We get to see some of that chalk talk and go out with an under-standing to get it done. I dont think its indicative of whether a team is good or bad. Its gives guys a grasp of what youre doing scheme-wise. Itll give dif-ferent routes, looks and see how you adjust and do well against it.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The Small League State Invitational started in style on Saturday at South Columbia Sports Park. The tournament is hosted annually by Fort White Babe Ruth Baseball and the first round was completed with no delays. Fort Whites Minor All-Stars (10U) scored the best among the local teams by winning two games. The Minors defeated Lakeshore, 9-4, in the morning and knocked off Ocala Highlands, 11-2, in the afternoon. Fort Whites Major All-Stars (12U) fell to Lafayette, 8-0, but picked up a forfeit win when Oakleaf did not show up for the tournament. Fort Whites Senior All-Stars (15U) lost to Jefferson County, 11-3. Both the Minors and Majors play at 10:45 a.m. today. The Minors take on Mandarin, while the Majors face Melrose. The Minors play Normandy at 12:30 p.m. Monday. The Seniors are off until Monday when they take on Altamonte Springs at 9 a.m. Play in the championship brackets begins Tuesday. Jeffrey Hardin started on the mound for Fort White against Highlands and pitched into the fourth inning. He gave up one run. Brendan Johnson relieved and pitched into the fifth inning, also allowing one run. John Miller got the final out. The pitchers benefited from good defense. Fort White had one error and twice tagged out runners on the base paths. After a 1-2-3 top of the first inning, Hardin singled at lead-off for Fort White. He was caught stealing, then Jonathan Fischer followed with a single. Fischer moved to third on a walk and error and scored on a wild pitch. Highlands tied the game with a run in the second inning, before Fort White answered with four runs in the bottom half. Samuel Moore singled, John Wells walked and Hardin was hit by a pitch to load the bases. The runners moved up a base on a wild pitch with Moore scoring. Miller followed with a single that scored two runs. Millers ground ball was tipped by the pitcher, so although it hit Hardin running to third base he was not ruled out. Miller stole second base and scored on an overthrow. Fort White got consecutive singles by Johnson, Sandon Raulerson and Hayden James to open the third inning, with James driving in Johnson. That was the only run as Raulerson was thrown out at home on a grounder to the shortstop. Johnson had a two-run single in the fourth inning, driving in Miller (single) and Joseph Comesana (walk). Fort White scored three more runs in the fifth inning, while waiting for the time limit to expire. Dylan Holderfield (sin-gle), Wells (walk) and Hardin (walk) scored the runs. Fischer had an RBI-single. In the Lakeshore win, the nine runs were scored by nine different players and the team pounded out seven hits. Scoring the runs were Wells (two singles), Fischer (triple), Moore (double), Hardin (sin-gle), Miller (single), Holderfield (single), Johnson (two walks), Raulerson (walk) and Caedrin Blancett (walk). Comesana had a pair of walks.Rookie A State TournamentLake City Purple had a rough go of it at the Rookie A State Tournament last week in Palm Beach Gardens. The Purple went 0-4 in pool play, starting with 11-3 losses to both North Tampa and Miami on Wednesday. Atlantic Beach won 8-0 over Lake City on Thursday and South Orlando beat the Purple on Friday, 18-1.

Coke Zero 400 to run todayAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH Steady rain forced NASCAR to postpone the Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway. The Coke Zero 400 will start at 11 a.m. today. The race was supposed to start at 7:57 p.m. Saturday, but showers soaked the 2 12 mile superspeedway and forced officials to delay the green flag and eventually postpone the race. This is the fourth Cup race affected by rain this season and the second to be postponed a day. The Daytona 500 at Daytona was delayed more than six hours. Bristol also was affected, and Texas was delayed a day. Sprint Cup rookies Alex Bowman and Ryan Truex entertained fellow driv-ers and rain-soaked fans Saturday by turning the introduction stage into a slip and slide.

The Netherlands could have used a late goal from Robin van Persie or Wesley Sneijder or Arjen Robben later Saturday but didnt get one, only edging Costa Rica 4-3 on penal-ties to set up a semifinal against Argentina. The 2010 finalists lit up the tournament with 12 goals in four matches but couldnt find the net in regulation or extra time against rank underdog Costa Rica. Captain van Persie wasted chances to break the 0-0 deadlock, and Sneijder smashed an 80th-minute free kick into the post and a stoppage-time shot into the crossbar, set-ting the scene for replace-ment goalkeeper Tim Krul to be the unlikely hero. Krul went on in the last minute of extra time coach Louis van Gaal considering him a better option in the shootout than No. 1 Jasper Cillessen and made two crucial saves. We had a lot of chances but it didnt go in, Krul said on Dutch television. Then I come in, stop two penalties and here we are. The flood of goals from the group stage slowed to a trickle in the knock-out rounds, with the four quarterfinals yielding just five goals. Brazils 2-1 win over Colombia on Friday night was relatively high-scoring compared with the 1-0 results by Germany against France and Argentina against Belgium. The low-scoring quarterfinals were slightly overshadowed anyway in the host nation, where mil-lions were still coming to terms with the fact that a back injury knocked star striker Neymar out of the tournament. Brazil fans at Brasilias Estadio Nacional for the Argentina-Belgium match wore face mask carica-tures of their talisman and held up signs reading: Have strength Neymar. Brazil will win.
I ts the last day of Mancation 2014, and Im scraping peanut butter out of the jar for breakfast. Our annual mancation takes us to a secret spot located somewhere in the Bahamas. No wives, or women attend. We basically fish like crazy (some sleep like crazy), and eat what we catch for 5-6 nights out of the week. This year was Scott Gilmers first trip. Scott isnt one to shy away from an adventure, and he knows one mode: ALL IN. If he goes skiing, he skips the training hills and goes right to the Olympic champion level at full speed. His first skiing trip he crashed so hard that it was termed a yard sale meaning he hit, and stuff went flying everywhere, scattering the ground like a Saturday morning yard sale. He wound up with a broken bone, and probably multiple concussions. True story. When he plays touch football with some guys from church, tackling gets involved, and he ends up with no cartilage remaining in his left shoulder. True story. If he were to take up chess hed probably turn it into a rugby match. Not a true story ... yet.I also know Scott works like crazy, and is extremely devoted to his family. It seems hes been worked more hours than an AC Unit in the middle of the Sahara Dessert. Because of this, Vegas odds had Scott as the favorite to win our annual Chris Costello Sleeping Award, given to the guy who sleeps the most. For the rest of this story, Ill write in reverse. I typically walk 10-15 miles a day on mancation in search of the gray ghost, and most of it in water thats ankle to knee deep. Its the only way to catch DIY bonefish. It requires covering miles of the most beautiful water known to man. Im wired differently, I work really hard, and I play even harder. Scott went all in with this mission from day one. By day six an exhausted Scott said, Im sick of the saltwater. He had reached a level of physical fatigue with assistance from a mild sickness that was keeping him on or near the couch and house. He kept up with me for several days, listening to everything I said, casting when I said to cast, and generally going anytime the conditions were right (sun shining and 3 hours on either side of a low tide). He actually took a day off to recover from the soreness of the first two days in hopes of being able to go back to his normal hardcore style. What did all of this hard work get him from Monday to Saturday? NOTHING. Not one bonefish. Heck, he even went offshore, and caught a fish roughly the size of a tic-tac. That was it. I kept telling him that it happens to everyone fishing this style from the beach for bonefish. It takes great eyesight, pinpoint accuracy with your casting, perfect conditions, and most importantly a ton of luck. Bonefish are the whitetail deer of the ocean. They see everything and spook at a lure that lands within 50 yards of them. In five years of making this trip I had caught roughly 25 bonefish from the beach, and Jonathan Allen was in the same ballpark with his catches. Thats seven days of fishing, 10-12 hours a day, for five years, and it equated to maybe five fish a year. During this same time, six other guests combined had successfully landed zero bonefish (over 12 inches). So, over 30 week-long attempts, from some very good fisherman: NOTHING. Lets rewind to our first full day. Scott had never thrown a spinning rod. He didnt even know what a bail was. I basically gave him my brand-new setup, a two-minute tutorial, and we stepped out the back door onto the beach. John Crews, another rookie, also struck out with us. For me, guiding someone to a great fish trumps anything I can do personally. So, I was eager to try and see what I could do with these two rookies, even though the odds were higher of a snowstorm on the Bahamas. Scott practiced a few casts, picked up the basics, and he was casting 50-75 feet (nowhere near far enough to catch a bonefish in the conditions). It was a high sun, no wind, and the sand bars were becoming exposed by the gin-clear water. These conditions make it even harder to catch bonefish. We kept walking along and I spotted a few fish and we made some casts, and all of the fish spooked (like they usually do) or didnt care anything about our lures. Finally I spotted a big bone and made a perfect cast. Zero interest. John cast. Zero interest. Meanwhile Scott was practicing his casts behind us on the sand bar. Two minutes later, Scotts drag started screaming. I went running over to him and figured he had a barracuda, or a shark, but I noticed he needed some coaching. He was reeling against the drag and the fish was about to run off all of his line. So, I tightened down the drag, and Scott got the routine down while listening to everything I told him. He stopped the fish before it could run off all of his line, and about 10 minutes later a big bonefish came into sight. I yelled, are you kidding me! He had successfully hooked the bonefish of a lifetime, without seeing the fish, without ever having thrown a spinning rod, and without having any idea how hard it all was to actually accomplish! With the help of John, we were able to control the fish, exchange high fives, and take a photo of this once-in-a-lifetime 26-inch, 5.8-pound bonefish. Ironically, Scott wasnt able to fully appreciate what an accomplishment this fish was until he had finished grinding out the rest of the week with no other fish. He realized just how amazing this fish was under the circumstances. Mark this one down as a true fish story!Q Rob Chapman IV is a tournament winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

The Florida Forest Service and Southern Group of State Foresters developed the Southern Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal (SouthWRAP) website to address wildfire threats. SouthWRAP was launched earlier this month and is the first of its kind in the nation. Its a tool planners can use, said Doc Bloodworth, a Lake City-based Florida Forest Service Wildfire Mitigation Specialist and public information officer. We develop summary risk reports for counties and can define a specific project area and summarize the wildfire-related information for the area. By visiting www.southernwildfirerisk.com, residents can see specific wildfire threats near their homes, in their neighborhoods, in their county and in surrounding states. Bloodworth said the summary risk report is generated using a set of predefined map products developed by the SouthWRAP. SouthWRAP allows users to pinpoint a specific location and identify wildfire threats based on landscape characteristics, historical fire occurrence, weather conditions and terrain. The site also routes users to resources that can help them tackles identified threats and reduce wildfire risks. The reports are designed so the information from the reports can be easily understood, he said. We look at local fire plans, fuel mitigation plans and hazard mitigation plans. According to Florida Forest Service information, Columbia County has 380,408 acres of forested land. Of that, 121,504 acres, including roughly 80,000 acres that comprise the Osceola National Forest, are public lands. The remaining land, roughly 258,904 acres, remains under private ownership. Bloodworth said a tool such as SouthWRAP is a valuable assets in protecting those assets. He said the idea for the interactive website to help reduce the threat of wildfire has been around since 2000, but the concept has now been refined and localized. The portal used in this Avoid wildfires with new website The interactive website, which provides information on local wildfire threats, is the first of its kind in the nation. COURTESYSouthWRAP, a locally-developed tool to help reduce the threat of wildfire, contains data on 13 southern states and information about acres of forested land.

That defies logic, dont you think? Think, too, of the worlds most famous successful investors, such as Ben Graham, Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, John Templeton, Shelby Davis, Philip Fisher, George Soros, David Dreman and John Neff. Despite their different approaches, each outperformed the overall market using fundamental analysis. Its hard to come up with a group of hugely successful investors known for using technical analysis. A 2008 study by New Zealands Massey University tested more than 5,000 technical analysis strategies in 49 different countries. The result? Not one added value beyond what may be expected by chance. A study of Dutch investors found technical investors earned lower returns. You can succeed with a bad strategy, but usually only in the short term and often due to luck. The evidence strongly suggests that buying stocks using technical analysis will lose you money. Large nest eggs can be built over many years using fundamental analysis or simply by investing in low-cost, broad-market index funds. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Kicking Hertzs TiresIf you have a parking spot to fill in your long-term portfolio, consider Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE: HTZ). Accounting prob-lems have pressured the stock and may potentially delay the spinoff of its equipment business, but theres a lot to like in Hertz. Hertz will be restating its past three years of financial reports. Thats not great news, but it could be worse. First off, the restatement is focusing on expenses, not aggres-sive revenue recognition policies or anything that suggests dramatic wrongdoing. Revenue growth, which is critical, will not change. With the car-rental industry consolidating in recent years, hav-ing fewer competitors can prop up prices and profit margins for Hertz. (Hertz has participated in the consolidation, buying Dollar Thrifty last year for $2.3 billion.) Of course, business landscapes change over time. It remains to be seen whether new ride-sharing busi-nesses such as Uber and Lyft turn into threats for car-rental companies such as Hertz. Hertz plans to complete the spinoff of its equipment-rental busi-ness sometime next year. The move will give the company net proceeds of $2.5 billion, which will be used to pay down debt and reward share-holders via share buybacks (which reduce share count and thereby boost earnings per share). With a forward P/E ratio near 12, Hertz is worth a closer look. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Hertz.)

I considered doing so when the stock was at $93, but I thought that was too high. Tony, online The Fool Responds: Ouch. Youre probably painfully aware that Apple stock has recently been trading near $90 per share and thats after a 7-for-1 stock split. The split-adjusted price you were con-sidering it at is about $13, so you missed a gain of almost 600 percent. If you werent confident in the companys future, though, you were right not to buy. Remember that any stocks price alone doesnt tell you much. A $400 stock can be a bargain, and a stock that has recently tripled might still keep growing. You need to consider how rapidly its revenue and earnings (and, ideally, profit margins) are growing, what its growth prospects are, and how attractive its price is relative to vari-ous measures such as earnings, via the price-to-earnings ratio. Apples stock might still seem pricey to some, but its P/E ratio was recently only near 15, and it offered a 2.1 percent dividend yield, too.

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JULY 6-12, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 area contains data on 13 southern states. The website allows visitors access to information as either public viewers or professional viewers. The is also a section for a communities at-risk editor. The public view er can identify wildfire risks at home and the professional viewer can access information designed to support the community wildfire protection planning needs of govern ment officials, hazard mitigation planners and wildfire professionals. The community editor section allows the Florida Forest Service to create and manage wildfire assessments at the community level. The information is collected and stored in a centralized database. Anybody can go on this website as a public viewer and identify the risks to their home, Bloodworth said, noting the computer then generates a question asking, What are your risks? You can put your home address in there and it will come up on the map and identify some risks that you may be experiencing, he said. The website lists threats collected from historical data and indicates what the intensity level would be if a wildfire to threaten the area, calculating low to extremely high intensity. Bloodworth said the tool will be beneficial mitigation specialists and to agencies that combat wildfire. Its a wonderful tool for us because we can take these results and help prioritize the areas where the state will engage in its mitigation treatments, he said. It will also encourage community interaction and education based on the information we have and also supply tactical analysis that might be necessary to reduce the threat of wildfire. A majority of the information gathered will be used in a wildfire protection plan for Columbia County. A wildfire protection plan is an assessment of risks and it identifies mitigation actions that should be taken to lessen the impact of local wildfires. It also identifies the stakeholders and provides capabilities for implementing the plan and focuses on evaluating and re-planning as necessary. The Florida Forest Service is here to service the pub lic and we take great strides to protect the safety of not only our firefighters but the public as well, Bloodworth said. These types of tools are what helps us do that. He said tools are only useful if the decision makers in the county are aware of the risks. And then we together, on a collaborative basis, pre pare wildfire protection plans that identify the risks in the areas of Columbia County and allow us to make, not only the decision makers, but the public aware, of their risks to wildfire. WIKIMEDIA COMMONSColumbia County has 380,408 acres of forested land. Of that, 121,504 acres, including roughly 80,000 acres that comprise the Osceola National Forest, are public lands. The SouthWRAP website will help mitigation specialists and agencies combat wildfire. SOUTHWRAPContinued From 1CBy NANCY BENACAssociated Press WASHINGTON There may be more to that we the people notion than you thought. These are boom times for the concept of corpo rate personhood. Corporations are peo ple? Mitt Romney got mocked during the 2012 presidential campaign for the very idea. But it turns out the prin ciple has been lurking in U.S. law for more than a century, and the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling, gave it more oomph this week when it ruled that certain businesses are entitled to exercise religious rights, just as do people. Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the courts majority, said protecting the religious rights of closely held corporations, which are often small, fam ily-run businesses, pro tects the religious liberty of the humans who own and control them. In its ruling, the court said closely held corpora tions with religious objec tions cannot be forced to pay for their employees insurance coverage for contraception, as required under President Barack Obamas health care law. Four years earlier, the corporations-as-people idea got another big boost when the court voted 5-4 to expand the free speech rights of businesses and labor unions by strik ing down limits on their political spending. That unleashed a massive flood of private money into polit ical campaigns. The rulings have trig gered renewed debate over the idea of corpora tions as people, which sur faces in legal cases stretch ing back to the 1880s. There are wonky legal discussions about the dif ferences between artifi cial persons (corpora tions) and natural per sons (the kind with flesh and blood). TV comics riff on the notion that fake people have more rights than real people. Theres a petition drive to amend the Constitution to ensure that inalienable rights belong to human beings only.Corporate personhoodAll of this calls for a brief reality check: Corporations really arent people. Everyone knows this.Even Romney, who was criticized for being out of touch when he famously told a protester that cor porations are people, my friend. The point the GOP pres idential candidate was try ing to make was that rais ing taxes on corporations would affect real people because everything cor porations earn ultimately goes back to people. The Supreme Court was reasoning in a simi lar vein when it ruled that the real people who run closely held corporations should be able to exercise religious rights just as do individuals. Alito, in his ruling, described the concept of corporate personhood as a familiar legal fiction that retains its usefulness. It is important to keep in mind that the purpose of this fiction is to pro vide protection for human beings, he wrote. But Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in her dissent, zinged Alito and the majority for an expansive notion of corporate per sonhood. She said the startling breadth of the courts rul ing could clear the way for corporations to opt out of all sorts of other legal requirements if they can cite a religious objection. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a potential Democratic candidate for president in 2016, voiced similar con cerns. Just think about this for a minute, she said. Its the first time that our court has said that a close ly held corporation has the rights of a person when it comes to religious free dom. Some opponents of the ruling see the expanding view of corporate person hood as a legal fiction run amok. They say the lat est court ruling could encourage corporations to try to claim greater rights in other areas as well arguing against cruel and unusual punish ment if they think a fine is too big, for example, or even seeking a corpo rate right to bear arms. The courts already have extended to corpora tions Fourth Amendment rights against unreason able searches but have declined to provide them Fifth Amendment protec tion from self-incrimina tion. After the Supreme Courts 2010 campaign finance ruling, attorney Burt Neuborne lamented: At the rate the court is going, soon we will be able to be adopted by a corpo ration. Maybe even marry one.Who has rights?Now, Neuborne calls the latest court ruling an immense perversion of the Constitution. Robots dont have rights, trees dont have rights, and nei ther do corporations. He warned that the rul ing could backfire against corporations if the court goes too far in extending individual rights to busi nesses. Breaching the wall between corporations and their shareholders, he said, could ultimately make corporations liable for the actions of their shareholders and vice versa. For example, if Hobby Lobby, one of the com panies that sued against covering some forms of contraception, owed some one money, its creditors might try to go after the shareholders, he said. I suspect theres going to be trouble in paradise down the road, said Neuborne, who wrote a brief for the Brennan Center for Justice at New York Universitys School of Law arguing against extending religious rights to businesses. Attorney John Bursch, a former Michigan solici tor general, said it makes sense that corporations have some of the same rights as individuals. After the court extended free-speech rights to cor porations, its not a big leap to say that a First Amendment protection with respect to religious liberty would also apply to a corporation, he said. Whether more rights should be extended, Bursch said, is a little harder, and wed all need to think about that. Corporations are people?Its a real legal concept, and conundrum WIKIMEDIA COMMONSHobby Lobby is a chain of retail arts and crafts stores based in Oklah oma City, Okla., for merly called Hobby Lobby Creative Centers. The stores are wholly owned by the corpora tion and not a franchise chain. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobbys religious rights. By EMERY P. DALESIOAssociated Press RODANTHE, N.C. Hurricane Arthur gained strength in the Atlantic on Thursday and threatened to strike near the North Carolina coast on Independence Day, prompting thousands of vaca tioners and residents to leave parts of the states popular but flood-prone Outer Banks. Nichole Specht, 27, and Ryan Witman, 28, had pre-loaded their Honda CRV and left Hatteras Island at 3:30 a.m. Thursday, beating the expected traffic jam. The island was under an evacua tion order, with no traffic allowed in. Officials asked an estimated 35,000 residents and travelers to leave through North Carolina Highway 12, the only road on and off Hatteras. Specht and Witman found the road wide open for their return home to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Specht said her parents left their rental later, at 5 a.m., and also found clear sailing. We were just saying we were really, really lucky this year that the weather was so great, and then this, Specht said as she ended a two-week vacation that included scouting sites for the couples wedding next year. Forecasters expected Arthur to speed up to a Category 2 storm and pass over or near the Outer Banks a 200-mile string of narrow barrier islands with about 57,000 permanent residents early Friday, bringing rain, heavy winds, storm surge and danger ous rip currents. Category 2 hur ricanes pack winds of more than 96 mph. Before the storm hit, tourism officials had expected 250,000 people to travel to the Outer Banks for the holiday weekend. Gov. Pat McCrory sought to strike a balance between a stern warning to vacationers and opti mism that part of the busy week end could be salvaged. On Wednesday, he warned people: Dont put your stupid hat on. But the next day, even as the storm gathered strength, he said: Of course, this holiday weekend, the July 4th weekend, is one of the biggest weekends for coastal tourism in the state, and we antic ipate a beautiful weekend after the Tropical Storm Arthur or the Hurricane Arthur is out of North Carolina. Some visitors stayed put, hope ful the fast-moving storm would follow predictions to pass through by Friday afternoon. About 20 miles north of the only bridge off Hatteras, Sean Fitzgerald and his 5-year-old son, Cade, enjoyed a sunny morning lounging in beach chairs in the town of Kill Devil Hills. The sand was dotted with tourists. A handful of surfers took to the water. Like all areas north of Oregon Inlet, Kill Devils Hills wasnt under an evacuation. Fitzgerald said he saw no need to disrupt his fami lys vacation. I plan to sit on the beach as long as the sun is here, then head out for a seafood dinner, said Fitzgerald, 44, of Fairfax, Virginia. Those who dont evacuate the islands should prepare for possibly getting stuck for sev eral days without food, water or power, National Hurricane Center forecaster Stacy Stewart said Thursday. We want the public to take this system very seriously, go ahead and start their prepara tions because time is beginning to run out, he said. Arthur, the first named storm of the Atlantic season, prompted a hurricane warning for much of the North Carolina coast. Tropical storm warnings were in effect for coastal areas in South Carolina and Virginia. On the Outer Banks Ocracoke Island, accessible only by ferry, a volun tary evacuation was underway. Officials said ferry service would end at 5 p.m. The holiday weekend was not expected to be a complete loss on the Outer Banks. Forecasters said the storm would move through quickly with the worst of the weather near Cape Hatteras about dawn Friday. Then it was expected to clear. Vacationers leave as Arthur draws near to North Carolina WIKIEMEDIA COMMONSVacationers are packing up and leaving their rental house muc h like the one pictured above on the beach in Rodanthe, North Carolina as Tropical Storm Arthur continues to make ihis way up the coast.

Red Robin opened there a year ago and it has been a busy spot ever since. The first Red Robin opened in 1969 in Seattle, Wash. When you walk in the door you get a happy feel ing. Practically every inch is covered with some sort of picture, television or object. I immediately spot ted a life-size American flag made from red, white and blue baseballs. Impressive. There was a picture frame filled with popcorn. At the entrance is a 7 foot tall repli ca of the Statue of Liberty. A sign at the entrance to the bar reads adults get the bar, the kids get every thing else. Speaking of the bar, there were some interest ing looking concoctions available but it was a little early for me to partake. There was a Baileys Irish Cream shake that sound ed interesting ($7.19). A Skinny Cocktail with 142 calories and the freckled lemonade (vodka) were interesting sounding too. The restaurant seats 240 guests so there is plenty of room.Main courseWe started with the Yukon chips with French Onion dip ($3). They were warm and the dip was fresh and creamy. Delicious. The burgers are the stars on the menu. So many to choose from makes it a difficult deci sion. The burger most fre quently ordered is the Red Robin Gourmet burger ($8.99) which Kimberlynne ordered. It was topped with pickle relish, toma toes, mayo and her choice of cheese. The burger was accompanied by a cup of hot, crispy fries, which they kept coming as long as she wanted, along with her favorite ranch dressing to douse them in. LaShel ordered the Bleu Ribbon burger ($10.49). It came topped with tangy steak sauce, chipotle aioli, Bleu cheese, tomatoes and crispy Onion straws. This one is worthy of five stars if you like Bleu cheese. After talking with Justin, the kitchen manager, and Austin, our waiter, I decided to try their most popular salad, the Whiskey River BBQ chicken salad. ($10.39) It arrived with salad greens topped with fire-roasted corn, black beans, avocado slices, cheddar, crunchy tortilla strips, crispy onion straws and a perfectly grilled sliced chicken breast. I asked for the salad dress ing and the BBQ sauce on the side and they were both delicious. This is like my new favorite salad.The good stuffThe No. 1 dessert ordered here is the Gooey Chocolate Brownie cake. Chocolate brownie cake with hot fudge topped with vanilla ice cream and served with sweet straw berries and berry sauce. We didnt save room for dessert but this would have been my choice too. Everything is made to order so you can custom ize anything from the bun to the toppings. Types of buns include classic, sesa me, whole grain, onion cia batta bread, jalapeno-corn meal Kaiser roll and for $1.00 extra you can have a gluten-free bun. Heres an interesting twist, if you want to go bun-less it can be wrapped in fresh let tuce. They will substitute a BOCA Original Vegan burger or Gardenburger for no charge. Steamed broccoli, coleslaw or a side salad may be substituted for fries at no extra charge.On the menuMore menu choices include Soups, Wraps and Sandwiches, appetizers, Monster Milkshakes and Malts and a kids menu LIFE Sunday, July 6, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert Bridges754firstname.lastname@example.org Bird watching in Gainesville WIKIMEDIA COMMONSThe Gourmet Burger on Red Robins menu topped with pick le relish, tomatoes, mayo and your choice of cheese and is by far the most frequently ordered menu item.

TASTE continued on 4D By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@ufl.eduSchools been out for about a month now, but the fun kids are having at Columbia County Recreation Department activities is still going strong. The county offers a free program for children ages 6-17. Children can head over to the Richardson Community Center from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday to play sports and hang out with their friends under adult supervision provided by the department. In the mornings, the kids play dodgeball and volleyball outside, and in the afternoons, they head inside the center to play basketball and just spend time with friends. Children can come for one day of the summer for an hour or every day for eight hours a day either way is fine with the rec depart ment. Its goal is to be a fun, safe hangout for children who would otherwise be sitting at home, Mario Coppock, the county recre ation director, said. He said while children as young as six years old can come to the free camp, its mostly teens who frequent the center. They like being able to just hang out with their friends, he said. Parents like that their children are safe when theyre there, Coppock said. And safety is some thing the rec department stresses, he said. We want our parents to know when their kids are here at our facility, theyre safe, he said. On Tuesday, 15-year-old Nikayla Mackay sat on the bleachers of the facility, chatting with some girlfriends. Other children, some younger than her, some older, were sweating on the court as they played basketball. Nikayla said she sometimes plays basketball, but on Tuesday, the girlfriend she usually plays with wasnt there, so she hung out on the sidelines with her other friends who dont play basketball. Its just a place to hang out and have fun, she said. I like the staff and how comfortable they make the gym feel. While Nikayla was in the bleach ers, Danny Burroughs, 12, played basketball on the court. One of the things he likes best about coming to the free camp is the three-point shoot-outs they have. Sometimes I win, he said. Sometimes I lose. But his favorite part of being there is playing dodgeball. You get to run a lot I like it, he said. Sometimes the children there for the free program arent the only ones in the gym. The county recreation department also has a summer camp program, and some times the children from that are in the gym with the others. But mostly the kids participating in the paid summer camp are out and about. Every day of the week, the chil dren are taken in school buses to various activities such as skating, swimming at the community pool, swimming at Blue Springs and Bring on theFUN Columbia County Recreation Department offers a day camp for kids 6-17 at Richardson Community Center Monday through Friday.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 6, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I am planning to attend a birthday party for my friend Sophia who is turning 50. When I mentioned to her that I would be shop ping for her birthday gift, she asked that while I was shopping for her, that I also pick up a gift for her friend Stacy. I have met Stacy only a couple of times, and I think it was extremely nervy for Sophia to ask me to do it. The party is only for her, and I dont see the connec tion. Sophia has done this in the past, and Im trying to think of a way to tell her Id rather not buy a gift for her friend. How should I handle this? NO LONGER A DOORMAT DEAR NO LONGER A DOORMAT: Tell Sophia with a SMILE that you are not close to Stacy, dont know her taste and do not feel comfortable shopping for her. Smiling when you say it should prevent your refusal from appearing confronta tional. P.S. I agree she had a lot of nerve to ask. DEAR ABBY: We went out to dinner with another couple. The wives are psy chiatric nurses; the husbands are a bank er and a business owner. All of us are accustomed to deal ing with sensitive issues. A woman at the table next to ours went to the ladies room. When she returned, a short train of toilet paper was caught in the waistband of her slacks. It was very obvious. There was silence, but a pal pable energy, so the woman knew something was amiss and it might have something to do with her. The tissue float ed with each step, so I knew it wasnt weighed down with moisture. Because I didnt perceive it to be an imminent pub lic health threat, I joined the silent legion. Did I miss a moral imperative by not letting her know? I didnt know how to do it dis creetly. If this should ever happen again, what -if anything -should I do? MR. MANNERS IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR MR. MANNERS: Imagine if the person with the paper trail was you or your wife. Would you want to know, so that when you got up to leave the restaurant all eyes didnt follow you out? A discreet way to have let the woman know there was a problem would have been for you or your wife to have written her a note, and given it to her server to pass to her. That way, she would know there was a problem with the least amount of embarrassment. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Speak up but dont over react. Take an intelligent, well-thought-out approach to whatev er you do or say. Make personal changes that will enhance your appearance. Look for a good way to improve an important relationship. Be a team player. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Revamp your eating and exercise habits until you get the results you want. Dont be fooled by fast-talking individuals looking for a way to part you from your cash. Stick close to home and protect your assets. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Consider the changes you would like to make in order to improve your life. Physical, financial and intellectual alter ations will ensure that you are at your best and ready to make a move that will help you advance personally and professionally. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Lighten up. Now is not the time to make a fuss or to confront someone. Put your time and effort into personal improvements that will help build your confidence and bring you greater security. Keep your secrets well hidden. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Have fun, but dont overspend. Stick to the facts and figures when dealing with money mat ters. Getting involved in a cause you believe in will make you feel good and bring you in touch with someone pretty special. Love is highlighted. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont disrupt your domestic life. Problems will develop if you spend too much time working and not enough time nurturing important relationships. If nec essary, mix business with plea sure in order to keep everyone happy. Creative solutions will make you look good. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont let work worry you. Get out and enjoy the company of friends, family or your lover. Get involved in a challenge that is playful, high spirited and allows you to show everyone what you have to offer. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A short trip will lead to interesting information. Expand your interests, circle of friends and your talents. Make a unique alteration to your living quarters and you will enjoy the freedom it gives you to follow your dreams. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone is likely to give you false information or accuse you of being evasive. Take a step back and rethink your relationship with a friend or lover. You may need some time alone in order to figure out what to do next. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Expect disruptions and last-minute changes to occur. If you are prepared, you will be able to make adjustments that wont hinder your plans. Focus on work-related projects that will help you get ahead. Dont give in to emotional tactics. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep your emotions in check and follow through with your plans. Making changes to your home or attending a social evening with friends will brighten your day and improve your rela tionship with someone special. Financial gains are likely. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tie up loose ends and go over your financial papers. You can make changes that will save you money and cut your over head. Dont let anyone persuade you into spending on something you dont need. A trust issue is apparent. Proceed with caution. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Birthday girl boldly asks guest to bring a second gift Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

desires and indulge in a make-your-own sundae bar while celebrating life with members of their commu nity. Our goal is to raise $3,000 through this ice cream social to help Give Kids The World fulfill its mission of providing dream vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses. said Rod Butler, General Manager. Give Kids The World Village is a whimsical sto rybook resort located in Central Florida. Give Kids The World provides these special children and their families with weeklong, cost-free vacations that include accommodations at the magical Village, meals, donated attraction tickets and much more. Each year more than 7,000 fam ilies stay at Give Kids The World Village. Through the Ice Cream for Breakfast campaign, Give Kids The World is not only working to raise funds, but also awareness about children fighting life-threatening illnesses. Each and every day, Give Kids The World Village serves ice cream starting at 7 a.m. Weve been serving ice cream for breakfast for over 23 years, providing smiles and special memories for children with few tomor rows, said Give Kids The World President, Pamela Landwirth. We think it is time to invite the rest of the world to join us in this delicious tradition. With the help of many local business partners, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 100,000 families from all 50 states and 72 countries since its founding in 1986. To learn more, visit www.givekidstheworld.org. bowling. On Thursdays, the kids go on field trips across the state. So far the children have taken trips to Osceola State Park, Florida State University, the Jacksonville water park Adventure Landing and Santa Fe Teaching Zoo in Gainesville. Coming up, theyll take another trip to the Osceola State Park and Skate Station and then head to Wild Adventures and take a tour of Bethune-Cookman University. The camp started the second week of June right after public school got out and goes through the first week of August. The program is for children 6-13 years old, Coppock said. But unlike the free program in which most of the children are older, most of the kids participating in the summer camp program are younger, around 6-9 years old, Coppock said. On Monday and Tuesday morn ings, before they go swimming and skating, they participate in three-hour camps. In those camps, they play volleyball, softball and basket ball, but they dont just play sports. The children also learn how to do zumba and partake in a reading and math camp. And then the last week of camp in August, they do a four-day science camp run by Florida Gateway College. Coppock said the science camp used to only be two days like the others, but because the kids liked it so much, they expanded it to four days. We want them to have had a taste of school in a fun environ ment, he said. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 6, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Q Genie Norman and Mary Kay Hollingsworth are Columbia County residents who love good food and fun.

Besides the usual, chocolate, vanilla, etc. there are three specialty ones, the Salted Caramel shake which is a blend of caramel and Red Hawaiian Sea Salt, the Mint Brownie shake and the Cookie Magic, (a combo of choc olate and Oreo cookies). Pretty tempting sounding. Soup choices include French onion, clamdig gers clam chowder, chick en tortilla soup and Reds Chili Chili. Appetizers were numerous but O ring ($9.00) caught my eye. It is a stack of crispy fried onion rings standing 13 rings tall and served with Campfire Sauce and ranch dressing. A shorter stack is available for $5. There are just too many burger and chicken sandwiches and wraps to describe but you can check them out online or better yet make a visit there on your next Gainesville trip.
