The proposed rate decreased from $.1293 per square foot to $.1189 per square foot.

MEDICAL MILESTONE By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comWhen you sprain something, have a slight allergic reaction, develop a rash or injure yourself in another minor way, you have a couple options call an ambulance to take you to the emergency room, make an appointment to see your primary care physician or ignore the problem. But each option has a drawback. The first choice is costly and means youre taking up space in the emergency for only a minor injury. The second means you wont get care right away, and the third just isnt smart. But in the next few years, Columbia County residents may be able to get emergency care in another way through the cutting-edge technology of telemedicine.

Perry said Jefferson lagged behind the other council members in representing his district and Farmer said the constituents wouldnt be able to recognize Jefferson if he was in a line-up of local officials.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Artist sues over Angry Birds toysSEATTLE A Seattle artist who designed a line of plush pet toys called Angry Birds is suing the company that sold them, saying it cheated her of millions of dollars when it reached a deal with the Finnish company that makes the insanely popular videogame of the same name. Juli Adams, 45, says shes never played Angry Birds. But she did create a pet toy line called Angry Birds for New Jerseybased pet products company The Hartz Mountain Corporation in 2006, and said she retained the rights to her intellectual property even after she licensed her designs to the company. The addictive birdsversus-pigs videogame launched three years later and has since been downloaded more than 2 billion times. Adams lawsuit, filed this week in U.S. District Court in Seattle, says game-maker Rovio Entertainment wanted to market plush pet toys based on the game just as it has already done with Angry Birds golf-club covers, theme parks and innumerable other items but it couldnt because Adams work already had the U.S. trademark for Angry Birds pet toys. One of her lawyers, Anthony Shapiro, said Tuesday that Hartz apparently pretended to own the Angry Birds intellectual property as it persuaded Rovio to grant it exclusive rights to sell pet toys based on the videogame characters. The deal with Rovio has earned Hartz millions of dollars, he said, while Hartzs last royalty payment to Adams was in 2011, for $40.66. By the end of 2011, the company had paid her a little more than $11,200. 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+.

Pedro Bravo researched how do sleeping pills kill you? and bought a shovel to hide the body before slaying Christian Aguilar in September 2012, said prosecutor Brian Kramer. Kramer told jurors that the two men, who attended the same Miami-area high school, were hanging out in Bravos car at a Gainesville WalMart when the Aguilar was killed. His face ashen with dark circles around his eyes, Bravo showed little emotion as Kramer walked jurors through a grisly murder timeline. Bravo faces seven charges including first-degree murder, poisoning and mishandling human remains. Kramer said Bravo had become obsessed with winning back his ex-girlfriend, Erika Firman, and was jealous of Aguilar. Jurors were shown images from Bravos journal. No one will stop me. I will get out of Miami and into Gainesville ... and I will get her back! Bravo wrote after choosing to move to Gainesville instead of attending Florida International University. On the stand, Firman said she was in shock when Bravo sent her a text message saying he had moved to town and wanted to get back together. She said she wasnt comfortable seeing him. I didnt think someone would pack up their bags and move that far for a girl, she said. I was just a little surprised by everything. Bravos attorney, Michael Ruppert, said his client did not kill Aguilar. He told the jury that Bravo and Aguilar got into a fistfight the day the UF student disappeared, but that Bravo had let an injured and angry Aguilar out of his car that day. He punches his friend Christian, pulls over and theres a fight, Ruppert said. When he left Christian Aguilar was breathing and alive. However, the prosecution said Bravo had spent days planning the murder. Kramer showed jurors photographs of Bravo buying duct tape and a shovel from Lowes the same duct tape prosecutors say was found on Aguilars bones. Kramer said a search of Bravos car unearthed a plastic drink bottle with sleeping pill residue, suggesting that Aguilar was drugged before he was strangled. Empty sleeping pill capsules were found at Bravos house. Bravo got a mutual friend to set up a meeting, and the two hung out for hours before Bravo drove to the Wal-Mart parking lot and strangled Aguilar, prosecutors said.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2014 3AFrom staff reportsA Lake City man, initially arrested Friday morning after he allegedly used a large knife to threaten his neighbors during an argument, faces additional charges after authorities found drugs in the patrol car where the man was sitting. Craig Watkins, 36, 200 SE Sundial Place, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (without intent to kill), battery, possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $22,000 bond. On Aug. 1 Columbia County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to 200 SE Sundial Place in reference to a disturbance involv ing a large knife. When deputies arrived they were told the suspect, Watkins, ran up to his room and the witnesses gave a physical description of Watkins as well as a description of the clothes he was wearing. Deputies went to the room and knocked on the door, which was opened by another man, but they reported a man fitting Watkins description was sitting on the couch. When Watkins exited the room and was handcuffed, he was uncooperative and appeared intoxicated, the report said. The deputy who took Watkins into custody was unable to find the knife on Watkins, however, other deputies on scene conducted a search around the perimeter of the building and found a large knife on the backside of the residence in the grass. When we looked up ,a window was opened as if someone threw the knife out of it, Deputy Brian Lucas said in his report. The window that was opened was from room 209 where Craig (Watkins) was located. A witness told deputies Watkins was at her residence and when she asked him to leave, he refused and pushed her to the ground. When a neighbor came over and also told Watkins he needed to leave, Watkins reportedly went after him with a large knife. The man told authorities that Watkins grabbed him from behind and tried to put the knife to his neck, the report said. After a few seconds of continuous struggle, the witness said Watkins gave up and ran to his room. Another witnesses corroborated the two other witness statements and when the three witnesses were shown the knife, they confirmed it was the knife Watkins used, the report said. Watkins was then taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility and once he exited the patrol vehicle, the deputy checked the car and found a white spice bag with white tiger written on it. The bag reportedly contained eight, small, clear plastic bags with a white substance inside each bag. Watkins said it was not his property. The deputy field tested the items and the test reportedly showed positive results for methamphetamine and MDMA. Watkins was also charged with possession of the drugs.CCSO: Man left drugs in patrol car Watkins Initially arrested for assualt, he now also faces drug charge. getting initial treatment on the scene and then getting taken to the emergency room, they could just get fully treated right then and there. When EMS responds to a call, it will have a portable machine to video chat with an emergency care physician, whos not at the scene, and give a patient a complete physical on the scene. When the paramedic looks in the patients ears using the video machine, the doctor will be able to see what the paramedic sees. When the paramedic looks in the patients eyes, the doctor will see exactly what he would if he was in the room using the tool. The doctor can even hear the patients heartbeat through the machine while the paramedic uses the stethoscope. With telemedicine, paramedics act as the doctors hands, so physicians can provide care to patients without being in the room or even in the same city. The machine is battery-operated and works without a WiFi or Internet source. Columbia County is one of the first counties in the country developing this technology. During telemedicine test runs on Monday and Tuesday, about five volunteers were put into mock situations in which they had common emergency room injuries and were treated by emergency care physician Dr. Mark Starvos, who was in Pensacola, via video chat. James Brinkley, the operations manager of Lifeguard Ambulance Services, which provides EMS for Columbia County, said the purpose of the test runs are to catch any glitches in the system. Were putting it through the ringer, he said. But so far, they havent found any glitches. Everything has gone well, said Dr. Kim Landry, whos the Columbia County and Lifeguard medical director. Columbia County Sheriffs Office captain Joe Lucas was one of the volunteers put in a mock situation. He was told he got stung by bees and was having an allergic reaction. Lifeguard Ambulance Service captain Alice Mobley gave him emergency care and then did a full physical exam while Starvos watched and guided. Mobley performed an EKG on him. She listened to his heart and did everything else Starvos wouldve if he was there in person. Lucas said he definitely would want to be treated with telemedicine in a real medical emergency. I feel completely comfortable, he said, as Mobley treated him. The idea with telemedicine is to provide patients with good care without taking them out of their environment, Brinkley said. Telemedicine technology was created by a Michigan-based company, Max Life, and was designed to treat patients with minor injuries at the scene, not to take the place of emergency rooms, said Frank Ferlito, who works at Max Life. But the technology can also be used inside of ambulances to treat patients who are being taken to the hospital for more serious injuries. An emergency care physician will video chat with EMS to advise immediate care and see the patient. Right now, the paramedic has to take his hands off the patient to radio or call the doctor, Brinkley said. But with telemedicine, paramedics dont have to take their hands or eyes off the patient. On Tuesday, Brinkleys daughter, Sadie Brinkley, 6, climbed in an ambulance and rested on a stretcher to demonstrate how calls from inside the ambulance would work. Starvos could view the situation from different camera angles. He got a sideview and an aerial view. These doctors can get a general overview of the scene (with this technology), Landry said. For the patients who can be treated with telemedicine without having to go to the hospital, telemedicine will save them money and will conserve space in the emergency room, Landry said. The most costly part of an emergency is the visit to the hospital, so if thats cut out, patients will save money, he said. Landry isnt sure exactly how much money it will save them though. Lifeguard is still looking into the particulars of the system and working out the logistics of it, he said. But the system will help save lives, which is the most important thing.

Cason said the preliminary resolution that will set the maximum fire assessment rates for 2015 will be voted on during the meeting. We do not anticipate any additional changes, he said.Rate still a concernNick Patel, who owns the Comfort Inn and Suites, Hampton Inn, Country Inn and Suites and Red Roof Inn, was vehemently opposed to the 71 percent fire assessment increase initially proposed for hotel/ motels in the city fire services study. He said local restaurateurs still have concerns with the lower rates. Patel said he spoke to Steve Tindale Tuesday afternoon and he plans to talk to him again before todays city council meeting. It was brought to my attention that the hotel (fire assessment) rate went down a bit, he said. Its definitely still a concern. We still need to meet and really look at the data weve received and see the classification of the data through much more detail. Some of the data is not being classified correctly.Proposed ratesThe proposed assessment for Single Family dwellings increased from $194.01 to $221.76. The proposed assessment for multi-family dwellings decreased from $133.54 to $131.55. The proposed assessment for hotel/motels increased from $.0758 per square foot to $.1189 per square foot. The proposed assessment for commercial establishments decreased from $.1546 per square foot to $.1386 per square foot. The proposed assessment for industrial/warehouse space (measured in square foot) decreased from $.0822 per square foot to $.0480 per square foot. The proposed assessment for vacant/agricul tural land increased from $36.77 per parcel to $44.35 per parcel. The city council meeting will be proceeded by a council fiscal year 2015 budget workshop. The budget workshop is slated to begin at 4 p.m. in council chambers in City Hall, 205 N. Marion Ave. A second budget hearing has been scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday. The council meeting is slated to take place at 7 p.m. tonight in council chambers. The city council meeting was rescheduled from Monday because several council members were out of town on city business. FIRE RATEContinued From 1A

W est Africa is grappling with one of the world’s most fearsome and elusive adversaries: the Ebola virus. As of Monday, the World Health Organization had tallied more than 850 dead, mostly in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. That includes dozens of local health workers and the top Ebola doctors in Sierra Leone and Liberia. WHO chief Margaret Chan said late last week that the epidemic is out of control. As with previous outbreaks, the virus shows no mercy. Ebola kills up to 90 percent of its victims with astonishing swiftness. The aver-age time from start of symptoms to death is just eight days. Ebola, transmitted by contact with an infected person’s blood or other fluids, makes those eight excruciat-ing days of high fever, diarrhea and often profuse bleeding from body orifices and even the skin’s pores. “The virus attacks the body’s soft tissues — a process some doctors describe, bluntly, as like watching a patient ‘dissolve,’” Tribune cor-respondent Paul Salopek reported during a 2000 outbreak. There is no cure. No effective treatment. No vaccine. The rest of the world, a plane ride or two away, shudders. “What’s going on is unprecedented,” Thomas Hope, a virolo-gist at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, tells us. “Usually these things last two or three weeks and then get isolated.” Not this time. Infectious disease expert Dr. Michael Osterholm of the University of Minnesota tells us that this strain of Ebola isn’t likely to be much different than others, but that international public health and local government officials “were slow to understand how fast the virus was spreading.” That’s why doctors and other health professionals are strug-gling to contain the disease. “This is like trying to change a tire in a hur-ricane,” he says. A fearsome disease quarantined far, far away? Maybe not for long. Emory University Hospital officials in Georgia said they will treat an Ebola-infected American humani-tarian workers airlifted from Africa to the U.S. The hospital played down risks, saying “physicians, nurses and staff are highly trained in the specific and unique protocols and procedures necessary to treat and care for this type of patient.” Yet the stealth and fierce resolve of viruses is an awesome and frightening natural wonder. Just as awesome: the courage of health professionals who don the medical equivalent of hazmat suits to treat patients, knowing they still may put their lives at grave risk. Merely touching an infected person’s skin is perilous. As scientists gain a better understanding of Ebola, they may also unlock new clues into how Earth’s most fearsome predators, from the HIV virus to the common cold, stalk their victims by wiggling past — or blasting through — our immune systems. At the very least, the battle against Ebola reminds us of the infinite unpredictability of nature, of our many and manifest vulner-abilities, and of our tightly intercon-nected world.

It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” That’s the right sentiment to describe the email which claims that Col. Oliver North warned then Senator Al Gore about Osama Bin Laden during congressional testimony in 1987. The hoax spread like wildfire after the Sept. 11 attacks. It was so popu-lar that North debunked it himself by pointing out (among other things) that he was not questioned by Gore and that the terrorist he spoke about was Abu Nidal, not Osama Bin Laden. An anonymous email forward is one thing but these “facts” get embarrassing when people post the things they know for sure on social networks. More than one person has had to apologize to their Facebook friends for sharing “facts” that weren’t facts. Although there are hundreds of examples especially involving President Barack Obama (who, it turns out, was never a member of the Black Panther Party) and his immediate predecessor George W. Bush. The photo showing Bush holding a book upside down might be funny but it’s fake. Another of these that stuck out to us was the famous or infamous, “I’m Tired,” speech that is incor-rectly attributed to Bill Cosby. Cosby may be tired but he never made any of the statements in that email. The Cosby email, for many, had too much “truthiness” to ignore and for a time we often saw it in our inboxes and Facebook pages. Late Night comics Stephen Colbert invented truthiness. It describes those things we want to believe (mainly because they support our point of view) even when they are false. If it sounds good, if our gut says it is right but it just is not true, then it is truthiness. Colbert’s wit was aimed, as it usually is, at politicians who do their best to polish and spin truthiness into votes on Election Day. There will surely be mountains of truthiness as the election draws near and we hope voters will do their homework when they are confronted by claims that sound too good to be false. When people and politicians allow the facts to get rubbery it’s damaging to the entire political process. We can’t have honest disagreements using dishonest facts. “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evi-dence,” Adams said as he defended British soldiers in Boston in 1770. And while facts may be stubborn they can be slow to appear when we really need them even, it seems, on the internet where fact and fiction live side by side and are only a click away. Twain, as he often did, nailed down the heart of the problem. “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.”Truth and truthiness in our world Q Panama City News-HeraldSlowing down a quick way to avoid mishapsM y mother used to say things just to make me mad. Like most teenag-ers, I thought I knew everything. And what I didn’t know, I didn’t want to be told. She didn’t care. She was a grown woman, twice my age, highly edu-cated in the school of hard knocks, and apparently felt it her appointed duty to make my blood boil on occa-sion like cold water in hot grease. For example. If I said I was going to a movie or a basketball game or a sleepover at my friend Martha’s house (I loved going to Martha’s house, her mother never made my blood boil) my mother would roll her eyes. “I should’ve named you ‘Go’! “ she’d say. “Go is all you do!” “Don’t worry,” I’d say, just to make her mad. “Pretty soon I won’t be going. I’ll be gone.” On my way out the door, she’d yell, “You need to slow yourself down before something bad does it for you! You don’t want to learn that the hard way!” I had no idea what that meant. I thought she just wanted me to stay home with her and watch reruns of “Hee Haw.” If that was her plan, it didn’t work. Many years later, to my mother’s great delight, I had three teenagers of my own. They thought they knew everything. And what they didn’t know, they didn’t want to be told. I would say the same kinds of things to them that she had once said to me (if in somewhat less col-orful language) with the same woe-ful lack of success. That’s when I first saw it. My mother wasn’t trying to make me watch “Hee Haw.” She was trying to spare me grief. Why do we always have to learn things “the hard way”? Why can’t we just accept the wisdom our elders try to offer us — things they had to learn “the hard way” because they refused to accept it from their elders? You should see how big I grin when I hear my children tell my grandchildren, “You need to slow yourself down ....” I can almost hear my mother’s voice adding, “before something bad does it for you.” It’s a good lesson for any age. Apparently, I’ve yet to learn it. That thought lit up my mind yesterday like a bolt of lightning as I lay on a gurney getting my foot X-rayed. Hours earlier, I had just stepped out of the shower when I heard my cell phone ringing far off out in the kitchen. What is it about cell phones that makes us act as if they must be obeyed, no matter what, no matter where, no matter who on Earth is calling? Why didn’t I just let it go to voice mail? My mother never had a cell phone. I can only imagine what she’d have to say on the subject. Grabbing a towel, I ran barefoot through the house at a surprisingly fast clip, skidded sideways into the kitchen and all in one move, grabbed the phone and rammed my left foot like a torpedo into the table. Fortunately, the call had gone to voice mail so the caller was spared hearing the manner in which I answered. I don’t recall all I said. I can assure you it was not the kind of message you’d want to record as a greeting. Meanwhile, my foot was looking a lot like an overgrown eggplant, swollen and purple, with the toes splayed in a wide “V,” as if flashing a peace sign. The X-ray revealed both good news and bad. The good was that I didn’t need surgery. The bad was that I’d broken not one toe, but two, and for four to six weeks would have to wear (yes, the rest of the summer) a “post-op” shoe that looks like a mini-surfboard with Velcro straps. I told you all of that to say this: We all need to slow ourselves down once in a while, before something bad does it for us. My mother, rest her soul, was right. About a lot of things. I wish I could tell her. Maybe one day I will. She’ll probably make me spend eternity watching reruns of “Hee Haw.” Fighting Ebola is ‘like trying to change a tire in a hurricane’ Q Chicago Tribune Sharon Randall www.sharonrandall.com Q Sharon Randall can be contacted at P.O.

Because the land was prone to flooding, it was only natural that the poorest Floridians, including freed slaves, would settle there, Brown said last week in one of many statements her office has issued defending the district. Segregated housing patterns, demanded by restrictive covenants and enforced by Florida courts, kept the AfricanAmerican population together well into the mid20th Century, which is the central reason why these communities are segregated into those residential patterns across the state. But after 20 years of controversy and being decried as one of the most gerrymandered districts in the nation, Browns district is now one of two that will be changed by the Legislature in response to Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis order in a congressional redistricting case. Lewis ordered lawmakers to draw a new map by Aug. 15, triggering a special session that will start Thursday. Lewis ruled that District 5, which includes parts of eight counties, does not comply with the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments adopted by Florida voters in 2010. Republican Congressman Dan Websters Orlando-area District 10 is also slated to be redrawn, and the changes will likely ripple through nearby seats. In redrawing the two districts, District 5 in particular, District 3, which includes Columbia County, may have to be altered as well. But it is Browns district, more than any other, that has drawn the ire of activists for years. And it is Browns district that is already bringing longstanding tensions among Democrats to the surface. It has also complicated the shifting alliances of the battle over the Fair Districts amendments. Ironically, Browns district was born as the result of a lawsuit --a federal case filed in 1992 under the Voting Rights Act. Brown helped waged the battle and points out time and again that before she and two other black lawmakers were elected that November, Florida hadnt sent an African American to Congress in more than 120 years. In more recent years, though, even some black Democrats have begun to say that an excessive concentration of African Americans in Browns district and other districts has the side effect of strengthening the Republican majorities in nearby districts Mums the word during special sessionBy JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Legislative staffers have been told not to discuss how new congressional districts are being crafted, as the House and Senate released schedules Tuesday for the upcoming special legislative session. Senate Reapportionment Chairman Bill Galvano, while issuing a lip-tightening advisory, also Tuesday filed a placeholder bill (SB 2-A) for the new district lines. The focus of the $68,245 per-day session that begins Thursday will be to redraw congressional districts 5 and 10, which Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis has ruled violate the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts amendments that voters approved in 2010. District 5, represented by Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown, winds from Jacksonville to Orlando. District 10, represented by Republican Congressman Dan Webster, is in the Orlando area. Additional changes may also be needed for other districts impacted by the changes to districts 5 and 10, Galvano wrote in a memo to other senators Tuesday. Meanwhile, legislative staff members have been told not to discuss the upcoming map-remaking process. That could be a nod to testimony during the recent redistricting trial that revealed details about secret meetings, email exchanges and map-swapping among Republican Party operatives and legislative staff. I have additionally directed our staff to refrain from discussing their map-drawing efforts with anyone outside of the Legislature except our legal counsel and not to share their work product with any outside interests in advance of the public release of the remedial plan, Galvano, R-Bradenton, said in the memo. Rep. Richard Corcoran, a Land O Lakes Republican who is the chairman of the House Redistricting Committee, offered similar directions in a memo Tuesday. House Redistricting Committee staff have been informed that they are to have no interactions with any member of Congress, Congressional staffer or aide, or with any political consultant, Corcoran wrote. If any member of the House suggests to Redistricting Committee staff that a plan be changed with an intent to favor or disfavor any incumbent or political party, staff should disregard the suggestion entirely and report the conversation directly to me. The House and Senate will be gaveled in separately at noon Thursday. Later that day, the two committees assigned to approve the new lines will hold a joint meeting, where they will be advised of their options regarding the ruling handed down by Lewis. The committees are expected to separately give their support to new maps Friday. The House will return at 10 a.m. Monday, with the Senate back in Tallahassee at noon that day to consider a bill. Both chambers have set aside time starting, at 10 a.m. each day for the rest of the week, if additional work is needed. Galvano noted there could be conference sessions between the two chambers during the week. Legislators have been authorized to travel Wednesday to Tallahassee. Lawmakers will be reimbursed for one round-trip home during the session, along with per-diem travel expenses or lodging at a single occupancy rate plus a meal allowance. by consolidating tens of thousands of Democraticleaning voters who would otherwise be spread out among several seats. It is the case that one of the biggest battles going on right now within the black community, political activists especially, and also within the Democratic Party, is what percent do you need of minorities to give them, in a district, an equal opportunity to elect a candidate of their choice, which is still the law, said Susan MacManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida. Some black Democrats in Florida, though, have been more willing to embrace the goals of holding a special session, saying that a new map is needed to give the state constitutional districts. Unfortunately, Floridas Republican legislative leaders failed to accomplish this task the first time around and that is the sole reason the Legislature is being called into special session this week, said House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston of Fort Lauderdale. I only hope we will see the new map ordered by Judge Lewis adopted in the transparent and open process Republicans promised but failed to give Floridians in 2012. Asked Tuesday if her organization was concerned about the special session that starts Thursday, state NAACP president Adora Obi Nweze said: Of course we are. She declined further comment because of the ongoing litigation. But opponents of the district say its not necessary to put so many black voters together to elect a candidate favored by African Americans. Brown has won several elections with a high percentage of black voters in her district without needing an African American majority. And Lewis found one of the key changes to the congressional map before its final approval --extending the district into the city of Sanford, which bumped the proportion of black voters up over 50 percent --was a political act not justified by voting-rights considerations. I also find that the decision to increase the district to majority (black), which was accomplished in large part by creating the finger-like appendage jutting into District 7 and Seminole County, was done with the intent of benefiting the Republican Party, he wrote. Lewis ruling has already sparked speculation that Brown or someone else might return to federal court after the special session to challenge the redrawn plan under the Voting Rights Act. Because the court held intact 25 of the states 27 congressional districts as the Legislature drew them, I believe we can and should meet the courts requirements with minimal impact on the rest of the state, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, in a statement issued this week. Brown doesnt appear to be ready to back down, casting the battle as one with nationwide implications. BROWNContinued From 1A

voter fraud scandal. “I hope there is and we don’t end up on court again.” Jefferson’s wife, Betty Jefferson, is under indict ment for alleged voter fraud during that race. Farmer echoed that sen timent. “Don’t let what happened in 2010 happen again,” he said. In his closing remarks Jefferson said he has rep resented the district since 1998 and he’ll continue to do it with respect, honesty and integrity. “I have no intention of bowing out now because I see a bright future...,” he said. “I’m committed to ser vice,” he said. The candidates did not shake hands at the end of their forum. Candidates in the City Council District 14 race, challenger Ricky Jernigan and the incumbent, George Ward, followed. Each spoke of the need for infrastructure work and road paving. Jernigan said there appears to be problems with roads being paved, garbage collection and said the constituents needed to see who rep resents them. Ward said the “horri ble economic downturn” impacted the city’s work on infrastructure needs and said the city’s budget has been flat for the last 4 5 years. Candidates seeking the county commission District 2 post, Rusty DePratter, the incumbent and Mark Kazmierski, both said they were in favor of giving all county employees a pay increase, when funds are available, and are in favor of smart fiscal spending. Both candidates said they were opposed to spending $18 million in a lump sum for a new county emergency radio system. Kazmierski said it’s too much money to spend on a single project at one time. He suggested completing the project in phases. DePratter said the need for a new radio system has been discussed by county officials and is being stud ied. He said he wouldn’t be willing to pay $18 million at one time, either. County Commission candidates Richard Keen, Everett Phillips, Clifton O. Ward and Toby Witt are vying for the commission District 4 seat. All four candidates said they were willing to give all county employees a raise when the funds were avail able, but each had differing opinions when it came to spending $18 million for a new radio system or more than $30 million for a new jail. Keen said he understands there is a need for a new jail, but suggested the county focus on upgrades. He said the $35 million would be a big burden and he would not be in support of raising taxes to get the funding. Ward said a committee is looking into the possibility of constructing a new jail and it would be prudent to get all the information before making a decision. He said rumors suggest ed putting inmates in tents and that’s something the that could lead to a lawsuit and shouldn’t be done. Witt suggested using portables for low security inmates, especially those who are only incarcerat ed for weekends and turn themselves in every Friday, noting it would not be wise to take on big spending during a recession. Phillips said he doesn’t think that the county needs to spend that on a new jail now, but wait and later look at the possibility of getting gov ernmental grants or some other forms of funding.

The forum was broadcast on public ac cess television and streamed live on YouTube. From staff reports The Great Suwannee River Cleanup began with an idea to clean up the Suwannee from the Georgia state line all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Building on three suc cessful years of clean up, last year’s efforts expanded to include the Suwannee’s tributaries. The rivers that flow into the Suwannee suffer the same fate when trash and harmful garbage accu mulate on river bottoms and along riverbanks. Last year, divers scoured river bottoms as volunteers worked on the river banks to remove literally thou sands of pounds of trash. It’s time to do it again this year. Volunteers are needed to organize cleanups on the Suwannee, the Santa Fe, the Withlacoochee and the Ichetucknee riv ers. The 2014 cleanup will occur during a three-month window from September through November along the Suwannee River and its tributaries. Businesses, civic clubs, fishing and boat ing groups, churches, government agencies, non-profits, chambers of commerce, and groups of friends are all encour aged to participate. Go to the event map at http://tinyurl.com/mwa2pjk to determine your section based on mileposts and GPS coordinates. Then register your group, the date of your cleanup, and your river section online at http://tinyurl.com/l9pntwn. Shortly after registration, your clean up will appear on the event map. Current Problems is available to assist you as you plan your clean up and to provide sup plies (grabbers, buckets, trash bags, etc.).

Dear Pharmacist, I really need your help because I am now up to 14 medications for the following problems: High cholesterol, heart disease, pre-diabetes, cataracts, arrhythmias, allergies, memory problems and enlarged prostate (BPH). The medications make me sick and sleepy. The reason I am writing to you is because you always have a fresh perspective. Can you help me get off these medications? C.P. Kansas City, Kansas Answer: Fresh perspective is my middle name. I would never tell you to stop taking your medications, but your doctor might in the coming months, as you get well. How to get you well is my major concern but since Im not a doctor, I will just give you advice to take back and discuss. Currently you take a lot of medicine for many conditions, which makes me wonder why they call it the golden years. Regardless, Ive got big news about something youve probably never heard of before. In the email you sent me, something stood out. No one has measured your serum insulin! You should ask your doctor to measure this for you. Based on my studies, I suspect that high insulin is one common denominator for many, if not all, of your medical concerns. There are numerous studies available on pubmed and printed in respected journals that show an association to high insulin and the very disorders that you have.Tricky weight loss? Insulin may be to blameFor those who dont realize, insulin is a pancreatic hormone that reduces blood sugar which rises in response to eating. Many physicians routinely measure your blood glucose, but not your insulin. The ratio of glucose to insulin is more valuable than the level of either one alone. Thats a very important statement and it often comes as a surprise to folks who are used to having their blood glucose measured (FBS) but not their insulin. Just because your blood glucose is normal (and you are sent home with the good news that you do NOT have diabetes) does not mean that everything is hunky dory. The following information is hard to find, and Im happy to share it with you. A persons insulin levels may be sky high because the pancreas could be working on overdrive to push the blood sugar into the cell. Remember, insulin puts sugar into the cell, so if you have a lot of sugar on board (from eating the typical American diet or lots of carbs) then your insulin can be very high for many years while your blood sugar is normal. This is a dangerous place to be, and many doctors never think to measure a persons insulin. The insulin can be high because the pancreas is pumping it out all day long to push the sugar into the cell. Good time to tell you that insulin makes a person fat. The more insulin, the more weight gain. So as a side note, if you are dealing with stubborn weight that refuses to come off, you may have high insulin. So you see now, why its the ratio of glucose to insulin that is so important. High insulin gives you a higher risk for many diseases. Serum insulin levels should be measured by the blood. If its high, we need to talk. Chronically elevated insulin causes a cascade of inflammatory chemicals and high cortisol which lead to major diseases some of which you already have. If I was a physician, I would have my patients take this blood test as part of their annual physical, or at the onset of any major disease. This is very important, I think taking the test twice in one day might be useful to certain patients. That probably sounds odd, allow me to explain. Does eating make your body go haywire?The first test would be taken on an empty stomach (fasting) and then you would eat a meal (or drink a sugary sweet drink offered by the lab facility, which tastes fairly nasty to be honest) and then you would take your second test 2 hours after that. What Ive described is called a post-prandial test. So to summarize, some people can just do one test which evaluates two parameters (fasting serum insulin AND fasting blood glucose) while other people may need to be evaluated more fully and take two tests. In this case, they would do the fasting tests and also a hour post-prandial test which evaluates two parameters (serum insulin and blood glucose). Why? Because some people are perfect when a fasting test is performed, but when they eat, their body goes haywire with the insulin and glucose. You wouldnt see this on a fasting test. I realize this is somewhat complicated but Im here to help you, and if I dont share these intricate details, you might fall through the cracks. I care too much to let that happen. So if this was hard to understand, re-read it, or print it for your doctor to see if you need to be tested in this way. These are blood tests (not saliva or stool).Numbers matterHere are the ranges to help you/your doctor and please note that this is just a guideline, its not the be-all, end-all there are many tests that your physician will suggest to help you get better. Heres one of them.Fasting Serum InsulinSerum insulin levels should be 5 10 microunits/ml. Optimally speaking, they should be less than 5. As a general rule, if your levels are higher than 10, your risk for developing diabetes increases. Above 25, and I think its a slam dunk for diabetes and other major disabilities. Two hour post-prandial serum insulin should be less than 25.Fasting glucoseOptimal 70 100 mg/dl 2 hour post-prandial blood glucose: 70 145 mg/dl Heres the big deal: The ratio of glucose to insulin should be less than 10:1. For example, if your blood sugar is 170 and your insulin is 8, then your ratio is 21 (not good). You want the ratio to be less than 10:1. Heres another example, your blood glucose is 85 and your insulin is 6 then your ratio is 14. Its better than 21, but more work that needs to occur. Chronically elevated insulin hormone has also been associated with Parkinsons disease, nerve pain, and autoimmune diseases like lupus and cancer. Yes, cancer! Breast cancer and pancreatic cancer are connected to high insulin. And according to an August 2009 study published in The Journal of The National Cancer Institute elevated insulin increases the risk for prostate cancer too. Heres their conclusion: Elevated fasting levels of serum insulin (but not glucose) appear to be associated with a higher risk of prostate cancer. Thats straight out of the National Cancer Institutes own journal. By now you may be wondering, how does one reduce insulin? The simplest way is free and totally up to you. Lose weight! Exercising helps you to reduce blood glucose levels. Even better, exercising makes your cells happy to see insulin, which improves insulin sensitivity.30 days gone vegan could work wondersNow, Im going to say the unthinkable to many of you reading this. Eat a vegan diet, including more raw foods for just 30 days and see what glorious things take place. Caloric restriction and the consumption of nourishing foods (rather than soda, fast food and candy bars) can reduce insulin and pain-causing chemicals. Its really not as hard as it sounds, and maybe a healthy diet is the solution for you, considering the current path youre facing. With dietary compliance, your doctor may be able to discontinue some of your medications. 10A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 MEDIPLEX404 NW Hall of Fame Dr., Lake City, FL 32055 All Services Under One Roof (386) 754-DOCS (3627)www.primarycaremedic.com Minesh Patel, MD Elizabeth Kathy Newman, ARNP Mary Goddeyne, ARNP Minesh Patel, MDBoard Certied Internal Medicine Best of Best 7 Years Primary Care for Adults Yearly Physicals Physicals for School-College Womens Health Geriatric Care Weight Loss Program EKG Spirometry Ear Lavage Holter Monitor Anti-coagulation Minor Surgeries Specialists On Site Dr. Feussner Neurologist Wed.

By MORGAN SHERBURNEUF Health Science WriterPatients diagnosed with fibromyalgia complain of chronic pain throughout their bodies, but often doctors have difficulty detecting what causes the pain, and therefore, how to treat it. These patients also complain of hyperalgesia, or increased sensitivity to pain. A University of Florida study published in the July issue of the European Journal of Pain has found that injections of the painkiller lidocaine in peripheral tissues such as muscles in the shoulders or buttocks reduced hyperalgesia, bringing researchers one step closer to understanding how chronic pain works within these patients. We hypothesized that if pain comes from the peripheral tissues, and we can take this pain away by injecting local anesthetics, then this would be indirect proof of the importance of peripheral tissues for the clinical pain of these individuals, said Roland Staud, M.D., a professor of medicine within the UF College of Medicines department of medicine. Sixty-two women diagnosed with fibromyalgia were involved in the study. Each woman received two injections in the trapezius muscles of the shoulders and the gluteal muscles of the buttocks, for a total of four injections per patient. The women were divided into several groups and given mechanical and heat pain stimuli immediately before and then 30 minutes after the injections. One group received four saline injections. The second group received four lidocaine injections. Although the lidocaine injections significantly reduced hyperalgesia, the placebo injections did not. The study also found that the lidocaine and saline placebo injections both resulted in a 38 percent reduction in patients clinical pain, or the pain a person feels at the point of injury. There was no statistical difference between the painkiller and the saline placebo.Time to say goodbye to hypersensitivity to painMedicare Seminar The LifeStyle Enrichment Center, 628 SE Allison Ct., is sponsoring a free educational Medicare Seminar on Tuesday, Aug. 12 from 5-6 p.m. Irv Crowetz will moderate the seminar.

Numbers up, enthusiasm there for CHS football By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.com The competitive edge is back for Columbia High and the Tigers haven’t even put on the pads. More than 120 players showed between the varsity and junior var-sity squads and head coach Brian Allen said the enthu-siasm was there. “It’s better than it has been,” Allen said. “The par-ticipation is up, and that’s not to say that they’ll all be trademark players, but there’s a lot of potential.” Allen said that the Tigers didn’t have to hit the reset button on the first day. After all, Columbia had gone through a rigorous summer conditioning program. “One thing with us, and with any competitive pro-gram, is that there’s not a lot of time off,” Allen said. “The kids don’t go away at the end of May and not do anything. It’s not like they’re coming into their first practice. They’ve been here all summer and they’re getting that knowl-edge and getting prepared. For our guys, that’s part of what comes with sum-mer. It’s not new, but a continuation.” Allen said that while the Tigers still have a few weeks to prepare for their first official game, Columbia is already doing a game plan, but of a different variety. “We’re not game planning for a team, but we can game plan for what we do,” Allen said. “We can game plan for what plays we’d run against certain looks. We can look against differ-ent formations for the pass and run.” Allen said the new variety in the offense this season could be an added benefit to the Tigers’ defense. “I think our offense will help the defense,” Allen said. “They’re seeing a little of all of it. It might not help Dennis (Dotson) with what plays he’s going to call, but for the kids to see the dif-ferent looks. Although the game plan may change, the structure for practice doesn’t. They may see four receivers with one back, five wide, power or Iso.” Allen said that versatility will be the name of the game for the Tigers’ offense this season. “We’re going to come out in different looks,” Allen said. “We might come out and run some unbalanced looks, and that’s not to say that we will only have those looks in the red zone or short yardage situations. We’re going to base out of it at times. That’s only going to help seeing those differ-ent looks.” Columbia’s kickoff classic takes place against West Orange High at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 22 in Lake City. The Tigers begin the regular season on the road against Gainesville High on Aug. 28.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: Coming out of an abusive relation ship in the past, I made some poor decisions. I moved away from home and into pornography and prostitution. I come from a small town, and it became a big deal when it hit the Internet. Everyone in my generation back home knew what I did. Years later, I’m back home. I have a wonderful husband and we’re expect ing our first child -a girl. My husband loves and accepts me in spite of my past, and my mother has become my best friend. I love my life here. Nowhere else feels like home. But I’m worried that my child’s life could be miser able here because of my past. She will go to school with the children of people who know my history. No parent would want their child around me and -by extension -her. She may also learn the unsavory things I did. I’m torn between mov ing away for her sake or staying. My parents are aging and have no one else to care for them. They can’t follow me, but say I should do what is best for the baby. I hate the idea of deserting my parents when they need me. But I also hate that my child will be ostracized. Can you help? — LOST IN THE SOUTH DEAR LOST: For your child’s sake, I think you should relocate. As I’m sure you have already realized, people can be cruel and they love to talk. When children overhear what is said over the back fence, they can be cruel, too, and I’d rather your daughter wasn’t subjected to it. (This is not to imply that wherever you go, you might not encounter some one who recognizes you -but the chances are less.) You don’t have to move right away. Take your time and scout out loca tions. Arrangements can be made for care if your parents need it. But your daughter’s welfare must come first. DEAR ABBY: When you go to the store for milk and eggs there is a “sell-by” date on the pack age. How long after that date is it safe to use them? — WONDERING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR WONDERING: According to Eatbydate.com, when it comes to milk, the length of time it lasts beyond the expi ration date on the carton depends on what kind of milk it is. Lactose-free and non-fat milk last another seven to 10 days. Skim and reduced-fat milk, one week. Whole milk should last five to seven days. Of course, for this to happen, the milk must be stored properly, at a temperature at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

You are best to keep a steady pace to ensure that your respon sibilities are taken care of and that promises you made are kept. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Partnership opportunities look good, but before you jump in, go over fine details and make sure you are satisfied with the way the work and finances are distributed.
