Districts 5 and 10 were ruled illegal in July because they violated the Fair Districts amendment voted adopted in 2010, and now legislators are meeting in a special eight-day session starting Thursday to redraw them. Of necessity, other dis tricts wil have to be redrawn as well. Circuit judge Terry Lewis ordered on Friday that the new map be used for the coming elec tion. The Florida Legislature laid out plans Monday to make minimal changes to the districts.

The more time students are out of school, the more time they have to forget about what they learned the previous year, Principal Michael Cady said. So the earlier we can start, the better. At Belmont, administrators, teachers, stu dents and parents all have one thing in common: the desire for suc cess. The K-8 com bination charter school, which opened for the school year Monday, received an A rating for the 2013-14 school year, which was the first year the academy was open for enroll ment. The academy was also ranked number 13 out of 109 combination charters in the state of Florida, and will be accredited by June 2015.High behavioral expectationsPrincipal Michael Cady said the school students, teachers and administration has worked very hard to achieve these goals, and cred its the success to the unique educa tion model it employs.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 WASHINGTON James Brady, the affable, witty press secretary who survived a devastating head wound in the 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan and undertook a personal crusade for gun control, died Monday. He was 73. We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved Jim Bear Brady has passed away after a series of health issues, Bradys family said in a statement. His wife, Sarah, son, Scott, and daughter, Missy, are so thankful to have had the opportunity to say their farewells. Brady died at a retire-ment community in Alexandria, Virginia, where he lived with his wife. He suffered a bullet wound to his head in the assassination attempt out-side the Washington Hilton Hotel on March 30, 1981. Although he returned to the White House only briefly, he was allowed to keep the title of presiden-tial press secretary and his White House salary until Reagan left office in January 1989. 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+.

In Cuba, some who heard about it from state TV called it objectionable, if not necessarily surprising. I dont know what to tell you. Its one of so many imperialist aggressions, so many years that they have been trying to bring down the revolution, said Elio Morales, a 19-year-old refinery worker. Theyve been trying all kinds of things for 50 years to bring down the revolution, and it hasnt fallen. Other Cubans backed efforts by the U.S. Agency for International Development and its contractors to support civil society on the island. Good for USAID! dissident writer and photographer Orlando Luis Pardo said via Twitter. The world must foster the rights of the Cuban people, abolished by the Castro regime and their allies. An Associated Press investigation published Monday revealed that under the Obama administration program, nearly a dozen travelers were sent undercover to Cuba to try to identify and ultimately groom a new generation of political activists. According to one document obtained by the AP, a goal was to put pressure on the government. In one case, a group of visitors organized an HIV-prevention workshop described as a ruse to conceal the political nature of their work. In Cuba, the early newscast showed AP video of the investigation. It included footage of two Cubans interviewed by the AP, but not audio of their comments. This program of traveler agents, like ZunZuneo, form part of a multimillion-dollar effort by USAID to effect change in countries that are politically inconvenient for Washington, broadcaster Cristina Escobar said. The afternoon news also led with the story, but without commentary. Cuban authorities have not commented publicly. Cuban-American Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart likened U.S. government efforts aimed at engaging Cuban civil society to Cold War-era attempts to promote democracy in the former Soviet Bloc. Efforts ... to find creative ways for the Cuban people to communicate with each other and with the outside world, are precisely the types of activities that the United States must vigorously pursue in closed societies, Diaz-Balart said in a statement.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 3A By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested Thursday after punching a woman eight months pregnant with his child in the stomach, deputies said. Jermey Denlento Rice, 22, was charged with aggravated battery as police say it was obvious the woman was pregnant. According to an arrest report, Columbia County Sheriffs Deputy Chad Kirby responded to 137 NW Helen Drive in reference to a dis turbance. When he arrived, he spoke with Rice and the woman, who live at the address together. The two also share a 1-year-old. When Kirby asked the woman how she was feeling she said she had general stomach pain and felt dehydrated. Emergency Medical Services responded to evaluate and she was soon released, the report said. The woman told Kirby that the assault happened as she was leav ing the house to braid a family members hair. She said Rice told her she couldnt leave because laun dry and other tasks needed to be done first, the report said. Rice was standing in the doorway when she tried to leave, so she pushed him. Rice pushed her back and she fell on the bed, the report said. Rice told Kirby that he and the woman were arguing about finances when he asked her to wait until the next day to do her family members hair so that she could work around the house, the report said. He said he only pushed her because she first pushed him. A witness, who also lives at the address, said Rice had been in a verbal argument with the woman when he pulled her back into the house by her hair. The witness said that the woman proceeded to bite Rice on his chest in an attempt to get away. The witness confirmed that Rice did push the woman on the bed before getting on top of her and hit ting her in the stomach, the report said. When Kirby asked Rice whether he had been bitten he denied it, showing the officer his the left side of his chest. Because Kirby had not specified where the bite was located, he was able to confirm the witnesss story was true. Police contacted an operator at the Florida Department of Children and Families, who said they will be opening an investigation. Rice was arrested and transport ed to Columbia County Jail without incident. He was released Friday on a $5,000 bond.

Delivered to your job site today By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested around 7:30 p.m. Saturday after drunkenly charging at his roommate with a metal pole. After police allowed him to leave the scene, he came back and began another argument, result ing in his arrest. Upon Columbia County Sheriffs Officer Scott Staleys arrival to 819 NW Winfield Street, 54-year-old Ossie Dewayne Crusaw told him that he was intoxicated because he had been drinking beer at a church social. As the roommate told police that Crusaw was severely intoxicated and had tried to hit him with a metal pole, Crusaw ran outside and began yelling and screaming, according to an arrest report. Staley reported that Crusaw smelled of alcohol and ignored his requests asking him to calm down. He contin ued to yell obscenities and threats at his roommate and was soon handcuffed, the report said. Crusaws roommate said that the argument hadnt been big, but that Crusaws drunkenness made him violent. After charging and swinging a large white pole at him, the roommate said he called 911, which made Crusaw put the pole down, the report said. Staley agreed to let Crusaw leave the residence if he agreed to not return until Sunday, when he would be sober. According to the report, he left on a bicycle heading west on Weinfield Street. About three minutes after the officer left the scene, he received a call that Crusaw had returned to the address and was continuing to argue with his roommate, supposed ly threatening him for calling police. Staley reported back to the scene and arrested Crusaw, who was charged with aggravated assault and violation of probation and transported to the Columbia County Jail where he is being held without bond.

T arrant County, Texas, residents got a sobering reminder of how important it is to vaccinate children when public health officials last week confirmed the first case of measles in the county since 2013. A resident who had recently traveled to Wichita, Kan., where 11 measles cases have been verified, was apparently exposed to the high-ly contagious disease while attend-ing a softball tournament early this month. Unfortunately, more than 30 other Texans who attended the event may have been exposed as well. According to the Centers for Disease Control, measles is the most deadly of all childhood rash/fever illnesses. It is highly commu-nicable, meaning it can spread eas-ily through coughing and sneezing, even breathing in close contact with an infected person. It also can take up to three weeks to incubate, sometimes making it difficult to determine when or where a person contracted the ill-ness. But the virus is almost entirely preventable by way of an easily obtained vaccine, usually administered just after a childs first birthday. Since 1963, the measles vaccine has been in wide use, leading to a greater than 99 percent reduction in confirmed cases in the U.S. Still, many Americans wrongly assume that such illnesses are vestiges of less enlightened times and all but nonexistent. As a result, many fail to get their kids the vac-cines that can ensure that these diseases do indeed remain things of the past. Similarly, a recent anti-vaccination movement advanced by some scientists and celebrities reportedly found a link between vaccines and autism in children. But such theo-ries have repeatedly been proven wrong. The state of Texas requires K-12 students to be immunized for cer-tain preventable diseases, measles among them. Parents still have several weeks to get children vaccinated before the school year begins. And while it is tempting for some to suggest that the measles out-break conspicuously coincides with the influx of Central American chil-dren to the Texas border, there is no evidence to substantiate a link. The real concern for Americans everywhere should be getting their own kids vaccinated by September. To the Editor: It really appears that unemployment has only improved to 6+% in the last few years. Is it possible that the few shovel-ready jobs are going to illegal immigrants? The president and government are allowing them to stay. They are given food, shelter and ben-efits that we pay for. Some get jobs that we need for our legal citizens. If the illegals were not here, how many jobs would be open? Many wouldnt like the type of work, but with fewer workers higher pay would be offered. As an employer, if I can hire someone for $8.00 an hour or one for $10.00 to do the same work, why hire the $10.00. If there were no $8.00 an hour workers, Id have to hire the $10.00 an hour person. Mr. President, send the illegals home and then we will have job openings for the $10.00 an hour jobs needed for US Citizens!

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org P resident Obama wants to lash corporate deserters companies that move overseas to avoid U.S. taxes with penalties and addi-tional regulations. It is another case of the president trying to pit Americans against one another instead of supporting an economy that would offer more jobs and opportuni-ties for everyone. Decrying a lack of corporate patriotism may sound good on the campaign stump, but if the president was genuinely interested in keeping American companies from shifting operations overseas, he would attack the countrys tax burden. The nations 35 percent corporate tax rate is the h ighest in the industrial world, and even though exempt ions allow some companies to pay considerably less, the U.S. tax rate remains unduly burdensome, precisely the r eason more companies are moving abroad. As The Wall Street Journal points out, when state taxes are added, the average corporate tax rate in the United States is 40 percent, double the average in Europe. Small wonder companies look for relief.Since 1983, according to the Congressional Research Service, 76 companies have moved their corporate he adquarters from the United States 47 in the past de cade. The Journal reports 19 such deals in the past year.What is even more important than corporate patriotism is that American companies be able to compete on the global market. It is hard to do that with the most stifling tax rate on Earth. The Obama administration has given lip service to tax reform, but invariably ties it to additional spending measures. But genuine reform could ignite the economy.S&P Capital IQ, a financial research firm, analyzed what would happen if Congress cut the rate by 10 per-cent. It calculated the nation would create 10 million jobs, which would more than offset the loss in federal revenue. The study said companies would move operations from overseas and invest more in U.S. operations. Michael Thompson of S&P, who oversaw the research, told The Daily Ticker: This would be a game-changer. If the United States were one of the most competitive tax domiciles in the developed world, how would that change the math in a CEOs or a CFOs head? It would change it a lot. Walter Galvin, former chairman of the National Association of Manufacturers Tax Committee, points out another folly of the nations corporate taxes. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, he wrote, American businesses are taxed on a worldwide basis regardless of where in the world revenue is earned. This means U.S. multinationals pay taxes twice, first to the foreign country in which they do business and then to the U.S. ... It seems to us that corporate patriotism should mean making American businesses as strong as pos-sible. The president and Congress should stop looking for scapegoats and get serious about corporate tax reform.Flogging corporate desertersLETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tell Momma not to worry, he wrote home from WWI This summer marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I. The U.S. counted 116,516 war dead. But the sacrificed life of one soldier lives on through his letters home. P vt. Maudie A. Miller wrote a lot of letters from his part of the war, the First World War. His father, Eli Miller, counted 45 in all, plus one postcard. The card announced only that he had arrived safely overseas. Our regiment is lucky so far, he wrote in a letter dated Sunday, Oct. 13, 1918. We have lost but very few men. ... Maudie was writing from somewhere in France, where he was assigned to Battery C, 320th Field Artillery of the United States Army. He was updating his family on what he had seen: The Allies sure have been doing some good work the last few weeks, he said in his letter. Guess you have seen in the paper what they have done, and still have the Germans on the run. But he longed to be home in Lula, Ga., helping his family at harvest time: Guess you all are busy gath-ering your crops. Would like to be there to help you all. Hope you will make a good crop. Maudies time in the Army began April 17, 1918, when he reported to Camp Gordon, Ga. He stayed there 13 days and then transferred to Camp Mills, N.Y. A few days later, he shipped overseas to prepare for what became known as The Great War, because no one could imagine a war being greater. The private received training on a machine gun and reported for duty near the front lines in France. Maudie assured his family time and again that he was just fine. Tell Momma not to worry about me, he wrote in the Oct. 13 letter. I will not hurt myself unless I do accidentally. I am not in very much danger. I am so far back of the front lines. He also assured everyone he had kept the faith. I have read my Testament through twice since I have been over here, he said. I havent been very uneasy, yet I feel like the Lord will protect me if it is his will. On Nov. 11, 1918 at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month hostilities on the Western Front ceased. But Maudie Miller never got the news. He was severely wounded and died 22 days before Armistice Day, the day the war ended. About two years and nine months after he died, the remains of Maudie Miller, my late father-in-laws oldest brother, arrived home for burial. His New Testament was among his belongings. Maudie had marked one verse in the little book. It was the 13th verse of the 15th chapter of St. John. It was the same verse the Rev. P.M. Webb read at Maudies funeral on July 29, 1921: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 From staff reports Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses traveled across the country this summer during their annual children's hospital tour. They completed the tour this week and returned to Columbia County. The therapy horses were also special guests at BreyerFest at the Kentucky Horse Park where they met more than 12,000 fans. Therapy horses Magic and Hamlet are 2014 Breyer Model Horses. During most of the tour this summer, the horses worked inside hospitals but they did get to meet some other well-known horses along the way. A special photo shoot was set up with therapy horse Magic and racing legend Funny Cide. Funny Cide won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes in a bid for the Triple Crown. He lives in the Hall of Champions at the Kentucky Horse Park and is not usually allowed around other horses, but his trainers made an exception for Gentle Carousel. Therapy horses Magic, Hamlet and Sweetheart also met famous Hollywood horse train er Rex Peterson and horses RJ Masterbug (star of the movie Hildalgo) and Listo (star of the new movie Winter's Tale with Colin Farrell and Will Smith). Rex Peterson has trained hors es for movies like The Horse Whisperer with Robert Redford, Secretariat, Dreamer, The Electric Horseman and many more.

to implementing both so our stu dents can suc ceed. He said he fears that behav ior has become the elephant in the room for most public schools, but that it is the key element to the success of students. Cady said that he plans to continue to emulate the same model for this school year. Along with an earlier start date, which is due to the implemen tation of a two-week fall break in October, Belmont has several new advancements in store for the 2014-15 school year. The Columbia County School District gave its approval of ninth and 10th grade students to be enrolled at Belmont. Next year the school will gain 11th grade, and the year after that, 12th grade. According to assistant principal Dominique Ward, the school has gained about 100 students this year, 20 of which are in Pre-K. There are now about 415 total students, she said. We have a lot of new faces, both students and teachers, Ward said. The additional teach ers are allowing for smaller class sizes and more advanced curric ulum. Qualifications held by these instructors have allowed for eighth grade students to have the option to take ninth-grade level algebra and biology classes, as well as dual enrollment courses taught by teachers on site, she said. Belmont also offers after school intramural sports and a newly added band program for fifth through eighth graders and a new physical education pro gram. Public school with private feel Allison Fitzhugh, who was home-schooled until Belmont opened last year, said she feels she definitely made the right choice enrolling in the academy. Belmont has been so valuable to my educational journey, the 15-year-old sophomore said. I think it is important to enjoy what youre learning or else its just school, and Belmont helps you do that. Fitzhugh, who is not only a student, but a tutor to younger students, said she feels immersed in, or a part of, the academy. It is a place that allows you to be involved in every aspect of the learning experience, she said. She explained that older, more advanced students can help tutor those having trouble in certain areas. Each day, the academy is open 30 minutes longer than other public schools to allow for a tutoring time called interven tion. Students who dont need extra help participate in advanced music classes, Ward said. I am prepared for college and beyond because of the respon sibility and discipline I have learned here, Fitzhugh said. I believe you should let life take you wherever it wants to go, but the real life skills you can learn at a place like this will help you along the way. Because Belmont is a public charter school, tuition is free; however, Cady said that he con siders the academy a public school with a private feel. Parent involvement Students are required to wear uniforms and each family is required to donate at least 100 hours of community service to the school per year. Last year the school logged over 3,600 hours of parent involvement, Cady said, often up to 200 hours in a single day. Parents can volunteer by help ing with traffic control, monitor ing at lunchtime or participat ing in the after-school cleaning program that takes place every week night. From 3:30-5 p.m., parents clean the inside of the school from top to bottom, Cady said. There is also a parent inside every elementary classroom, and about 80 percent of the school itself was built by parents and grandparents of students, he said. First grade teacher Annie Hopkins agreed that paren tal involvement is a big part of the exceptional program she believes Belmont offers. The parents play a vital role, she said. When they drop their kids off in the morning they are expected to be ready to learn, and they always are. Everyone is held accountable Hopkins said that the intention ality of the staff, as well as the administrations focus on student data, is key to academic excel lence. The administration has stud ied the data of each student in this school, she said. Each child is analyzed because the admin istrators are so on top of their progression. She said that even if a student goes down a point or two, admin istration is quick to notice and consult the teacher for reasons why the child may be declin ing. The children are being held accountable, and it really holds the teachers to a higher standard, too, Hopkins said. Everyone is expected to hold up their portion of the deal by doing their best, and thats the stuff that makes all the differ ence here at Belmont, she said. Everyone is just happy here, because its a wonderful place to be. Cady said he plans to continue running Belmont as it was ran last year, in hopes of another A rating. He said some major things students will focus on are respect ing their teachers and completing tasks given to them in a timely and non-distracting manner. He said teachers will be expected to practice strong classroom man agement. We have worked very hard and we are very happy, Cady said. We will continue to do our work and continue to grow as an academy. Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 7A said that it was the goal of legisla tive leaders to move forward without delay to remedy the boundaries of the two congressional districts cited by Lewis in his July ruling. Because the court held intact 25 of the states 27 congressional dis tricts as the Legislature drew them, I believe we can and should meet the courts requirements with minimal impact on the rest of the state, Gaetz said in a statement. However, a plan has been proposed that would put the northern part of Columbia County in District 5, which would mean a new representative for northern Columbia County resi dents. Currently, District 5 is repre sented by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville. The southern half of the county would remain in District 3, according to the proposed plan. District 5 would spread west from Jacksonville to Gadsden County along the state line. Buddy Hines, head of the Republican party in Columbia County, said he hopes Columbia County isnt split into two districts. I would hate to see us lose that (continuity), he said. But ultimately, he said he believes Columbia will stay intact. But you never can tell, Hines said. Were all just sitting on pins and needles waiting to see. Rep. Liz Porter, R-Lake City, wrote in a press release that shes working to make sure the county is not split in two. I remain committed to making sure that US Congressional District Three and those counties located within it will remain compact and intact to reflect the constituency of North Central Florida, Porter wrote. Koby Adams, Porters legislative aide, said he believes Columbia County will not be split. Most of District 3, including Columbia County, should remain intact, he said. There may be some boundary changes in the east and south (of the district) to accommo date changes. Right now, part of Alachua County and a portion of Marion County lie in District 3, but Hines said when the map is redrawn, District 3 could gain all of Alachua County and lose its current portion of Marion County. While Hines believes Gainesville will remain in District 3, there is still a part of him thats unsure, he said. And if Gainesville is no longer in District 3, Ted Yoho, who is a Gainesville resident, wont be the districts representative. Thomas Zehnder, one of the attor neys who represented the groups that sued the Legislature, applaud ed leaders for taking an important first step. But he cautioned that it remains to be seen whether they will produce maps that comply with the constitution. Lewis is scheduled to hold an Aug. 20 hearing to consider the new map. He has also ordered state election officials to draw up a proposed spe cial election schedule even though the judge said he has not made up his mind on whether to order one. Both Gaetz and Weatherford say they will fight any effort to implement a new congressional map during the 2014 elections or in a special election after November. They have argued implementing a map before 2016 would disrupt the elections or disen franchise voters. Other than the partisan plain tiffs masquerading as voting rights groups, I can find no one who would want a postponed or special election to leave Florida without representa tion in Congress for months, weeks or even days, said Gaetz. Rep. Perry Thurston, D-Plantation and one of the House members assigned to the committee that will draw up the new map, countered that it is wrong that have voters cast bal lots on gerrymandered districts. I dont think the answer is to let people vote on illegal maps, Thurston said. Zehnder said in a written state ment that it was disappointing to see the defendants continue to insist on delaying the restoration of represen tative democracy. Voters in 2010 passed new stan dards that said legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party. The congressio nal map adopted by the Legislature in 2012 was challenged by sever al groups, including the League of Women Voters, who contended that the GOP consultants used a shad ow process to draw districts that benefited Republicans. Lewis agreed, ruling that the con sultants had helped make a mock ery of the process and that there was evidence they helped manipu late the Legislature into a violation of its constitutional duty. The judge relied on emails and documents that have been kept under seal although the state Supreme Court is scheduled to consider whether that information should be made public. The Associated Press contributed to this report. Fitzhugh COLUMBIAContinued From 1A Deaker Sterling Lake CityI want a Republican to represent me, he said. If the county breaks into two parts, it could be for the best. Youre not putting all your eggs in one basket.Cindy Niedringhaus Fort WhiteI like Ted Yoho. I voted for him. He was fresh, modest and wasnt all wrapped up in the politics. Hes a vet erinarian, so you know he has some humanity, she said. But its not right for (the new map) to go into effect right now. It should take effect in 2016. Its not fair to candidates and voters. It shouldnt be legal. Where was the judge when the current districts were drawn? Elizabeth Darcy Lake CityI want to keep Yoho, she said. I dont think the county should be bro ken up. I like the current lines.Crystal Aset Hatshepsut Bey Lake CityIt doesnt matter if (who represents me) is a Democrat, Republican or inde pendent or any other party, but it goes by their principles and if they uphold the constitution because I think thats what weve gotten away from, she said. From what Ive taken, Corrine Brown does try to uphold her oath to the constitution. I see a lot of the Yoho adver tisements. I dont know what his principles are.

The cafeteria area was constructed solely by students parents and grandparents. Parents are seen monitoring lunchtime as part of the 100-hour service requirement for enrolling a child in Belmont Academy. Second-grade teacher Becky Brown asks students to raise their han ds if they know the answer to the problem on the board. New secondand third grade sections were added this year to allow for smaller class siz es and more advanced curriculum, Assistant Principal Dominique War d said. Foreman and Bruce Robinson, highlighted their experience and qualifications. Robinson said his extensive trial experi ence would be beneficial and Foreman said his experience as the countys conflict attor ney would be an asset for him as county attorney. The school board District 1 race featured three can didates, incumbent Linard Johnson and challengers Daniel Danny Green and Allison Scott. Each of the three listed parental involvement as a top priority for the district and described plans they would implement to get parents more involved. Each of the candidates said they had a child involved in the dual enrollment program and spoke of its importance. When asked about devel oping leaders in the school district, Scott noted she has years of experience in educa tion and could be a resource. Green also noted his three decades of educational expe rience and suggested a men toring program to develop administrative leaders for the district. Johnson said the district has an administrative pool with potential leaders, but noted the pool must have potential administrators who develop their ability to communicate with staff, faculty, students and parents. School Board District 3 candidates, incumbent Steve Nelson and Edgar Clauser III, offered a different take on school district priorities. Nelson said a top priority should be developing a suc cession plan for all the admin istrators who are leaving through retirement and taking their years of experience. His other priorities were the dis tricts finances and account ability. Clauser listed the districts top priority as parental involve ment and making the schools community friendly. He said mentoring could increase accountability and spoke of increasing vocational training opportunity for local students. The forum was livestreamed on the Internet and about 75 people followed the action at Gators Dockside on the restaurants televisions. FORUMContinued From 1A 5 1A 3A 7A.indd 3 8/4/14 11:05 PM

Thats pretty much how Audrey Sikes days go. But Sikes, who became city clerk in 2005, uses running to clear her mind and prepare her to tackle the next day. You start, you finish and youve accomplished something, she said. I like that, Sikes said. Running gives her the release she needs from her busy work life and leaves her feeling incredible, she said. I feel so accomplished when I run, Sikes said. I know theres a lot of people who dont understand a runners high. Once you get going, its unbelievable. Sikes only started running in the fall of 2013 but quickly took to the sport. She started running every day with the help of a friend and never wanted to stop. If she felt pain, she kept going. If she got tired, she continued running. I push through the pain, she said. That might be my competi tive side coming out. She was running one to three miles a day, but finally realized the phrase Push through the pain wasnt always the right way to go. So shes slowed down a little since. Now, she runs about one and a half to three and a half miles three to four times a week. But just because she has cut back on how much she runs doesnt make her any less intense. I think about it every day, Sikes said. I want to go running right now. And needing to cut back isnt going to keep her from racing. She has run four 5Ks and is preparing for her fifth this month. She runs local races with her running partner but has even made racing a part of her work. In May, she ran a 5K at the clerks conference in Milwaukee. The highlight of the race was being able to keep up with some of the younger runners for most of the race, Sikes said. She doesnt win her races ... yet. But she does have goals set for the future. She hopes to be able to run a nine-minute mile during a 5K and is even expanding her fitness goals beyond regular running. She is working on running the Tiger Mile, which is a combina tion of running a track and run ning stadiums. But for now, shes focusing on just finishing her races. My goal is to finish and feel accomplished. And I do that, she said. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterAudrey Sikes jogs around the Columbia High School track while p reparing for the Florida League of Cities Conference 5K held in Hollywood on Aug. 15. Sikes, who has been tra ining intensely since February says she runs for her health. If I didnt run Id go crazy. I feel very accomplished after Im done doing it.

Gators look to rebound from 4-8 last season JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel answers questions duri ng an interview at Gator Media Day on Sunday in Gainesville. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comMuch of Floridas disappointing season last year can be summed up by one word. Injuries.Quarterback Jeff Driskel returns after missing much of last year due to an ankle injury sustained against Tennessee. This season, he is expected to guide the Gators as they look to rebound from a 4-8 season. It was the first time the Gators had missed a bowl since 1990. Driskel also has a chance to make a mass improve-ment with a new offense that plans to utilize his dual-threat ability. Florida brings in Kurt Roper from Duke after he guided the Blue Devils offense to a BCS Bowl. Driskel likes the transition. Its a chance to really get into a groove as a quarter-back, Driskel said. Weve got a lot of good players. I think we need to have a good camp, stay healthy and grow as an offense and a team. We just have to put it all together. Driskel said theres not much of a learning curve to playing out of the shotgun. I think last year we did a lot as well, Driskel said. This year, theres going to be zone-read emphasis with potential for runs. Those worrying about another injury for the quar-terback should rest assured that Driskel is ready to scramble. Im going to do what it takes to win, Driskel said. Im not going to be wor-rying about getting hurt. When you do that, youre done. That thought isnt in the back of my head. Im 100 percent ready to go.

Muschamp met with the media before beginning fall practice on Monday and sounded confident about this years squad. The Gators are trying to bury the past and build for the future. I think that thats something we sort of bur-ied to start the summer, Muschamp said of 4-8. It was great motivation through spring and the off season workouts, but some-thing weve still got to deal with. I mean, its there. I addressed our team about our preparation, about our attitude, about our embracing adversity, having a competitive edge every day.

PG-13 Masters of Sex Dirty Jobs Ray Donovan S U C K Masters of Sex Dirty Jobs Ray Donovan S U C K FILEFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston awaits a snap in a game last season. The Seminoles began practice on Monday.FSU looks to repeat as national championsBy KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said he read books written by former NBA coach Phil Jackson in an attempt to discover the secrets of winning multiple championships. Jackson led teams to three consecutive titles on three separate occasions. Fisher is just focused on capturing back-to-back championships. The fifth-year coach routinely lists Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as inspira-tions, but also mentioned Miami Heat president Pat Riley, former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Chuck Noll and former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson on Monday. The key to all of them was how they related and got the message over to their players to make sure that they stayed hungry, Fisher said. One of the keys to all those things was that it was serious, it was work, but at the end of the day they still enjoyed play-ing the game. We can get so caught up in not trying to lose instead of winning and play-ing good football. ... What I dont want us to do is create a culture where were wor-ried about losing. Florida State, the defending BCS champions, will hold its first preseason practice Monday afternoon. The Seminoles ended a string of seven consecutive titles won by Southeastern Conference teams with a perfect 14-0 record. While the Seminoles have had some offseason issues Heisman tro-phy winning quarterback Jameis Winston was cited for shoplifting and receiver Jesus Wilson is suspended indefinitely for the theft of a motor scooter they have enough talent to make another run. The Seminoles return 15 players who start-ed in the championship game. Winston served a threegame suspension during baseball season and Fisher has planned to speak to Wilson Monday to discuss his status. Wilson is practic-ing with the team after he pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors stemming from the theft last week. He was originally charged with a felony. Fisher has refused to refer to his team as the defending champions a habit he began immediately after winning the title in January. He wants the focus on the future and what it will take to reach the top again. Fisher, however, has constantly looked back to previous two-loss and four-loss seasons. Once youre up on that podium, do you really want to walk off? Fisher said. How important is it to stay on that podium? We talk about that. Well throw those flashes up there to remind them of, youre either going to walk off that podium or youre going to stay on that podium.

We always talk in terms of either rent-ing it or owning it. You take ownership in your team. I see a lot of that. Scoring points is the one area Muschamp hopes to see the most improvement. I think weve improved our offensive roster tre-mendously at the receiver position, at running back, Muschamp said. Jeff (Driskel) is going to have a really good year. I feel very good about our first seven offensive linemen. I think were talented after that, just guys havent played much.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: What is the protocol for naming a baby after a deceased per son? If the name you want to use is a deceased family members name, do we ask his next of kin for approv al? Do we say nothing? Is it assumed that people who wish to use someones name when naming their child should seek permis sion (whether the person is living or dead)? Obviously, some people will use the name regard less of being granted a blessing or not, but Im wondering what is appro priate in this situation. PREGNANT IN ILLINOIS DEAR PREGNANT: In the Jewish faith, it is traditional for a baby to be named for a deceased par ent or grandparent -or at least given a name with the same first initial. However, if the person who died was a child of a close relative, I can see how that could be very painful for the parents who lost their child. The appropriate thing to do would be to first have a conversation with the surviving family mem ber(s) to be sure it will be considered the honor it is intended to be and not open fresh wounds. If it would cause pain, perhaps the expectant parents should consider making the name of the deceased their babys middle name instead of first name. DEAR ABBY: During my teens, I was diagnosed with depression and insti tutionalized following a sui cide attempt. Depression is something I live with daily. Unfortunately, my parents and siblings have a dont ask, dont tell policy when it comes to anything that may stir up emotions. I feel that its detrimental to my well-being. My doctor has suggest ed cutting my family out of my life. Dealing with them gives me great anxiety. My mother is a master manipulator who denies my suicide attempt ever happened, and Im afraid she will tell my extended family members (many of whom I have relationships with) that I have aban doned the family. No one outside my immediate family knows about my depression or suicide attempt, and I feel I may be forced to reveal that very private part of my life in order to defend my actions. I dont know what to do. RELUCTANT TO REVEAL DEAR RELUCTANT TO REVEAL: I think you should follow your doctors advice and not be intimidated. You have an illness -depression -that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is shared by about 9 percent of our pop ulation. It is nothing to be ashamed of. Because youre afraid of what your mother will say, explain to those relatives you feel close to what you need to do and the reasons for it. I cant guarantee that some of them wont take sides, but Im sure not all of them will. Sadly, not all families are functional. Not all parents are good parents, and some of them are toxic. P.S. Because your strug gle with depression is ongoing, I hope you are still under the care of a psychotherapist. If youre not, please consider it. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will come to verbal decisions when dealing with friends, relatives or colleagues. Voice your opinion, but remember to listen to what others have to say as well and you will make a good impression that leads to good results. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may want to control a situation, but if you force your ideas on someone, youll end up in a stalemate. Patience will bring far better results. Plant the seed, but dont try to take over. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Express what it is you want and you will find out exactly where you stand. Keep business and personal matters sep arate to avoid someone meddling in your affairs. Working on a project that excites you will keep you out of trouble. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get involved in a project that teaches you something unusual or allows you to work with someone from a different background. Spending time on personal grooming or learning new skills that will help you advance pro fessionally will bring good results. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take care of the little things that youve been promising others you would complete to avoid someone complaining or criticizing. Make alterations based on what you feel will help you move forward. Arguing will be a waste of time and lead to regret. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work quietly behind the scenes. If you can avoid drawing attention to your plans, you will get more done with less inter ference. Dont let an emo tional matter get blown out of proportion. Deception is apparent and must be avoided when dealing with partners. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get out and about. Take care of situations that will make a difference to someone in need or to a cause you believe in. The people you meet while help ing others will bring about positive change. Avoid a family feud. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It will be futile trying to hide your true feelings. Get things out in the open and make decisions. Changes at home that are out of the ordinary will turn out to be beneficial. Put a little mus cle behind your domestic plans. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotions will fluctuate. Gravitate toward moneymaking ventures that will bring about positive changes to the way or where you live. Emotional disillusionment is apparent. Ask questions to find out the truth. Keep your money matters a secret. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Proceed with caution. Participating in community events can lead to problems if you let impulses get the better of you. Dont be too quick to agree with someone. Ulterior motives are pres ent, and protecting your heart and your money is necessary. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Consider your motives and what you want before putting the blame on someone. Pick your friends wise ly. Someone you know well will disappoint you. Tension will mount if hon esty is questioned. Focus on your work and doing the best you can. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Romance is in the stars. An opportu nity to do something that will make you feel good or improve your appear ance should be taken. Networking will get you back on track and keep you moving toward a more prosperous future. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Tread carefully when naming baby after deceased relative Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
