Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, and city councilman Zack Pau lk walk through vegetation Wednesday afternoon that has grown on a sand bar in Gwen Lake. Will make it difficult to graduate high school with an AA degree. COUNTY SCHOOLS GWEN LAKE By MEGAN City, county and state officials met Wednesday to assess the con dition of Gwen Lake, and state Rep. Liz Porter said progress is being made on a plan to reverse the lake’s decline. “We wanted to get all stakehold ers in the same room to discuss options of how to get started on the fix, and we now have some good ideas about starting points,” Porter said. The lake has continued to get worse over the past few years, including severe algae build up and a large sandbar near its shore. Residents living nearby have expressed frustration to multiple agencies, including the city, the local Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency and Suwannee River Water Management District. “I know we need to do something out here because it is affecting peo ple’s homes,” said city councilman Zack Paulk. He said he has spoken to residents along the lake who say they have had sinkholes in their yard as a result of the erosion. Porter’s legislative assistant Koby Adams said most of the damage came from Tropical Storm Debby in 2012 and has only gotten worse since. The restoration of the lake will take some work, but will be something very positive for the city, SRWMD, Wildlife Commission offering grants to help fund clean-up. The sand bar has grown, creating a knee-deep pond and a stream on the shore of Gwen Lake. Potential tenant for NF Intermodal Park By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County high school students are less likely to graduate with their Associate of Arts degrees now, thanks to a new district-wide policy on dual enrollment. To qualify for dual enrollment under the new poli cy, students must have a 3.5 GPA and a minimum of 10 high school credits, said Kitty McElhaney, assis tant superintendent of assessment. As long as high school students pass their classes, they’ll have 10 credits by the start of their second semester of their sophomore year. But the biggest change to dual enrollment is the restriction on how many college courses students can take. Under the new policy, effective for the 2014-15 school year, students can only take up to three of their seven courses as dual enrollment classes at Florida Gateway College. Under the old policy, MEGAN REEVES/ Lake City ReporterEconomic Development Director Glenn Hunter addresses a room full of people at the Columbia Builders Association meeting Wednesday.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Trial end near for PistoriusJOHANNESBURG Prosecutors and lawyers for Oscar Pistorius have one last chance to convince a South African judge when they present closing arguments this week in the murder trial of the once-celebrated athlete who fatally shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, through a toilet cubicle door in his home. The judge will show where her allegiance lies once she starts asking questions, said Marius du Toit, a former prosecutor and now defense lawyer who is not involved in the trial. The party that gets hammered by the judge when arguing is the party thats got the short end of the stick when it comes to the ruling. Because South Africa has no trial by jury, judge Thokozile Masipa will decide with the help of two legal assistants if Pistorius committed murder, is guilty of a negligent killing, or if he made a tragic error and should be acquitted. The runner faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder, and also would be sent to prison for years if guilty of murder without premeditation or culpable homicide. He faces three separate firearm charges, and pleaded not guilty to all four counts. 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+.

Erika Friman testified Wednesday in the murder trial of Pedro Bravo, who prosecutors say strangled Christian Aguilar to death in September 2012 because of his obsession with Friman. Friman says she was shocked when Bravo moved to Gainesville from Miami and lied to him about dating Aguilar so she didnt push him over the edge. Later she helped coordinate a meeting between the two men, so Aguilar could help Bravo work through depression. Friman and Aguilar had plans later that night for dinner, but he never showed.

Rick Scott and the state over a disputed piece of land near the governors mansion. Circuit Judge John Cooper on Tuesday threw out a lawsuit that Scott and members of the Cabinet filed against Steven Andrews over the land. He also affirmed earlier rulings that backed Andrews. Andrews wants to buy the land since his law office is located on it. But the Scott administration wants the land as part of a plan to turn into a museum the adjacent historic home of former Gov. LeRoy Collins. Andrews contends state officials were not interested in the property until Scott found out that he was involved. The state alleged Andrews interfered with the states plan to purchase the property.White House: premiums will fall for many in Fla. FORT LAUDERDALE The Obama administration says the majority of Floridians who purchased health plans through the Affordable Care Act will actually see their out-of-pocket costs decrease, especially in big cities such as Miami and Orlando. Thats the opposite of what state officials said earlier this week. Tasha Bradley, a spokeswoman for the federal Department of Health and Human Services, told The Associated Press that 75 percent of Floridians live in areas where the second-lowest silver premium will actually decline. Their analysis shows the cost of that silver plan will decrease by 6 percent in Miami, 12 percent in Orlando, and 17 percent in West Palm Beach.

DePratter said he believes creation of the North Florida Intermodal Park, a verbal agree ment with Jaxport for foreign trade and the pending agreement with the U.S. Forest Service to acquire land access to construct a rail spur to the NFIP, have brought a wealth of opportunity to the county, which he hopes to make use of. “The halo effect of having a business locate in this catalyst site would be to act as a springboard to attract additional businesses, thereby compound ing the economic benefits for Columbia County,” he said. DePratter said that although he has concerns outside local con trol, he is optimistic that the coun ty will succeed in its economic endeavors. “Columbia County has demon strated its ability to sustain and grow even through difficult eco nomic conditions,” he said. “Still, it is important that we recognize the need to remain vigilant and dedicated to promoting economic development which leads to job creation.” He said the uncertainty of the federal government, such as with unfunded mandates, will make it challenging to provide necessary and essential services, putting strain on the state government. DePratter said the financial growth of the county is dependent on the continuation of the devel opment of infrastructure, which he believes will incentivize both businesses and families to locate in the county. Along with being a successful business owner who has pur sued a variety of entrepreneurial business ventures in Columbia County, DePratter said he is hon ored and proud to have served the county in 2010. “The voters placed a trust in my ability to represent them, and I believe that the success ful operation of local businesses contributed to their confidence in my abilities,” DePratter said. “I am committed to continuing this same representation for a second term.” Rusty DePratter: County Commission Dist. 2 DePratter By MEGAN Marc Kazmierski said his goal this year is to let the concerns of County Commission District 2 be heard. “Many in the district have con cerns that their problems fall on deaf ears, that minds are made up prior to meetings,” he said. “I want to open things up for a little bit better discussion, actually return a phone call.” Kazmierski said he wants to take care of Columbia County citizens by put ting a little more accountability and transparency into the county board. He said he wants to entertain general problems and concerns at board meetings with out restricting public comment. “When something is happening in the district, it is not my opinion that matters, it is the people of Columbia County,” he said. “It’s all about getting out there and speaking to the public and getting them what they want.” Kazmierski said he knows that the status quo is often hard to over come. Someone who comes in with new thoughts and ideas is general ly met with resistance, he said. He said he plans to trump that resistance by letting constituents do the talking by employing pub lic conversation. “My job is taking care of people all day every day,” said Kazmierski, a flight nurse for ShandsCair at UF Health. “My schedule affords me to be available to the public, and I want to use that time to have open conversations that aren’t behind closed doors.” His said his main concern is making sure the county’s connec tion with Jaxport stays intact. He said he hopes to see Lake City become a place of distribution that will offer jobs to the public. “It won’t just stop with Columbia County,” he said. “There will be so many jobs, people from neighbor ing counties will benefit, too.” Marc Kazmierski: County Commission Dist. 2 Kazmierski From staff reports The Lake City Police Department will be con ducting DUI/Safety check points within the city limits on Friday, August 8, 2014.

DUI checksset forFriday By GARY FINEOUTAssociated Press TALLAHASSEE — Florida leg islators are returning to the state Capitol for a nine-day session that kicks off today with a simple goal: Redraw the state’s 27 con gressional districts with as few changes as possible. The final product adopted by legislators will likely include tar geted fixes to the boundaries of those two districts and some changes to adjoining districts. It is improbable they would make widespread changes such as one proposal that calls for shifting Brown’s district from central Florida to north Florida. “It seems to me what the Legislature ought to do is take the judge’s ruling seriously and literally and resolve the prob lems associated with the two dis tricts that he found to be invalid and try to minimize any unin tended chaos,” Senate President Don Gaetz said Wednesday. “I don’t think we should look for an excuse to set off a chain of dom inoes that will cause more confu sion or chaos than is necessary.” Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith said it’s clear that GOP lead ers are willing to draw a new map now to avoid the chance that other districts could be declared uncon stitutional if a court fight lingered. “I think the Republicans got the map they pretty much wanted,” said Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. “They figure they can do some these little changes and stave off more changes.” Once legislators adopt a new map it won’t necessarily end the legal battles. The groups that filed the lawsuit wanted Lewis to draw up a new map and argued unsuc cessfully legislators couldn’t be trusted to draw up valid maps. One of their attorneys earlier this week said “it remains to be seen whether they will produce maps that comply with the constitution.” Legislative leaders also remain firmly opposed to holding a spe cial election later this year with the new map. They say that the new map shouldn’t be implement ed until 2016. Lewis said he is con sidering ordering a special elec tion after November, but admits he hasn’t made up his mind yet.Legislature to keep map changes simple


T he 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon’s resigna-tion as president, which is Saturday, is an appropriate time to take note of how nasty and unfounded the current Republican calls for impeaching President Obama happen to be. In August 1974 when Nixon shamefully resigned, it was clear he had to be removed from office. Nixon had violated the public trust, trashed the Constitution by seeking to disobey court orders, and laid waste to the nation’s democratic institutions. He had engaged in criminal conduct, including covering up the burglary at the offices of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. Many high-level Nixon admin-istration officials were convicted of crimes connected to Watergate and served prison time. By contrast, there is no basis for the impeachment of Obama. He has not engaged in bribery, treason or any other high crime or misde-meanor like Nixon did back in the early 1970s. His behavior hasn’t remotely resembled Nixon’s viola-tion of the public trust. As a possible run-up to impeachment proceedings, the GOP-con-trolled House recently voted to sue Obama. This, too, makes no sense. Congressional Republicans claim he has refused to implement part of the Affordable Care Act, even though they are against Obamacare. And it was a highly partisan vote, with not a single Democrat voting in favor of the lawsuit. By contrast, back in 1974 when Richard Nixon was forced from office, it was both Republicans and Democrats who agreed that he had crossed the line and had to resign or be removed. The recently deceased Sen. Howard Baker of Tennessee was one of the Republicans who insisted on get-ting to the bottom of the scandal. And Republican stalwart Barry Goldwater eventually urged Nixon to resign once it was obvious he had broken the law. The country has been down the partisan impeachment road before when Republicans unsuccessfully tried to oust President Clinton for his personal transgressions. That was a terrible waste of time and resources. Seeking to impeach Obama would be an even bigger one.

The spies still aren’t accustomed to the new reality. They can’t get away with fooling the public like they did in the good old days. John O. Brennan is the latest to be caught red in b oth hand and face, telling a whopper. The hot-headed CI A director blew a gasket when Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, offered evidence in March that government snoops had been hacking into the Senate Intelligence Committee’s computers. Mr. Brennan cou ld not have been more emphatic in his denials. “The allegations of CIA hacking into Senate computers,” he told the Council on Foreign Relations, “nothing could be further from the truth. We wouldn’t do that. That’s just beyond the scope of reason.” Mr. Brennan had to say that, or he would be admitting to something illegal. Since the 1970s America’s spy agencies have been prohibited by law from monitoring the “domestic activities of U.S. persons.” Snooping on the operations of another branch of the U.S. govern-ment is an unmistakable breach of that code, so Mr. Brennan was stuck with authorship of the whopper. “When the facts come out on this,” he said, “I think a lot of people who are claiming that there has been this sort of tremendous spying and monitoring and hacking will be proved wrong.” Instead, Mr. Brennan has been proved wrong, and worse, lying about it. In a closed meeting with senators last week, the CIA’s inspector general confirmed that the agency did in fact hack into Senate computers, and even Senate Democrats aren’t amused. Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado demanded his resignation. Mrs. Feinstein is in a more forgiving mood, call-ing the forthcoming release of the inspector general’s report a “positive first step.” She suspects that chang-ing the guard won’t change the institution. Legislation is the better way to whip the spies into shape. Sen. Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has introduced a stronger version of a bill that cleared the House in May, making it more difficult for the CIA and the NSA to vacuum telephone and email records of Americans. The bill modifies the Patriot Act to require more narrow requests for information. Such requests now go to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a secret body that currently rub-ber-stamps 99 percent of the spying requests that come before it. Mr. Leahy would have the court appoint five privacy-minded lawyers to be devil’s advocates in pro-ceedings that are otherwise one-sided; the judge now hears only from the government. The special advocate would have access to certain classified material, includ-ing secret court decisions. For the public, the spy court would have to make at least a summary of findings available, which would pro-vide some transparency. There are still plenty of loopholes in Mr. Leahy’s bill, and it’s not hard to see where they came from “In developing this legislation,” says Mr. Leahy, “I ha ve consulted closely with the Office of the Director of N ational Intelligence, the NSA, the FBI, and the Department of Justice — and every single word of this bill was ve tted with those agencies.” That’s hardly reassuring. Nevertheless, Mr. Leahy’s imperfect bill sends a message to these agencies that they’ve exhausted the nation’s patience. They should knock it off.Restraining the spies Q Washington TimesFour decades on, lessons of Nixon worth recallingF orty years ago I sat alone in the White House briefing room wiped out mentally and physically by the nearly unrelenting pressure of two years of covering the scandal that has come to symbolize the worst and the best in America’s history. The worst because of its enormous assault on our democracy and the best because our institutions, including the press, stood up to the assault. Richard Nixon had just resigned, and I now was vowing silently never to write another word about the event which had become universally known as just “Watergate,” although it covered far more than the break-in at the Democratic National Headquarters in the office building of that name. I pretty much kept my pledge even to the extent of refusing to watch the movie “All the President’s Men” — Hollywood’s version of the drama that shook the foundation of our Constitution and based on the book by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. The other day I heard an acquaintance allege that it was after all just a third-rate burglary undertaken by rogue political operatives with-out the president’s knowledge or implied consent. Nothing could be further from the truth. It was in fact not a burglary at all as we define the word. Nothing material was being stolen unless one counts the precious gift of privacy and the sanctity of our political system, which is a far worse theft than any-thing heretofore imagined. It was an intrusion carried out by morally and ethically challenged presidential operatives at the top of his campaign organization to glean information through eavesdropping devices installed in an earlier beak-in for the purpose of political lever-age in the 1972 presidential election as though Nixon had any actual fear of losing to a badly divided Democratic Party. In other words, for blackmail. What the “bugs” revealed from the conversations they recorded at least from the DNC desk where visiting Democrats were accom-modated on trips to Washington never has been revealed. And for good reason. In the end, of course, it became clear through Oval Office tape recordings that while Nixon may not have known of plans for the actual break-in before it took place, he did afterwards and participated in the attempted cover up of the scandal. The revelation of those now infamous tapes during the Senate’s pro-longed investigation of Watergate was the beginning of the end for Nixon. They have over the decades been endlessly perused by some of the world’s leading historians who seem to find new material each time. Two books now in circulation — one by historians Douglas Brinkley and Luke Nichter and another from a leading Watergate figure, former presidential council John Dean — mark this anniversary of the Nixon’s resignation. I was amused to see a headline over a column about the Dean book that stated “Legacy Tarnished by His Own Words.” To which one could only reply. You think? Over the 40 years since his decision that the jig was up and resig-nation was the only escape from impeachment and probable convic-tion by the Senate there has been some rehabilitation based on both his undisputed brilliance as a politi-cal analyst and his breakthrough with China, among other things. But it is the words on those tapes he once confided he should have burned that in the end haunt his image. Whether destroying the tapes was even possible considering they were under the control of the Technical Services Division of the Secret Service without creat-ing even more loss of credibility is problematic. The disclosure came from White House aide Alexander Butterfield during a pre-appearance interrogation by Republican Senate Investigator Don Sanders. Sanders once confided to me and a colleague Jim Squires of the Chicago Tribune that he believed that Butterfield was anxious to reveal their existence. This, of course, has generated considerable speculation about Butterfield’s motivations. In the end, it was the official investigatory agencies including the FBI and the CIA and the Senate committee leaking to an unswerv-ing band of reporters, of which I was proud to have been one, that nailed shut the lid on the Nixon presidency. It was a tragic conclu-sion to what could have been a brilliant legacy, was destroyed by a White House culture of paranoia and moral decay. What was gained for a time at least was a new aware-ness of what we almost lost. Nixon resignation anniversary shows contrast with Obama Q McClatchey-Tribune News Service Dan K.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 he said. Porter said a big contributor to the problem is fertilizer runoff from nearby yards, which is caus ing the growth of excess organic material. She explained that as this builds up, it sinks into the lake, cre ating more silt at the bottom. “Everything around the lake is upwards, so everything is flowing down into it,” she said. “We need to do some education in general so people understand that all of our lakes are connected — they all flow into the Ichetucknee.” Gwen Lake flows through a spillway into Lake Harper, which then travels to Lake Harris, so the pollution and silt could be affect ing other areas if not promptly addressed. “One possibility we discussed was dropping the level of the lake to dredge out the silt, but that may not fix the problem for the long term, because there could be more deposit under the water surface,” Porter said. She said that grants have been offered by SRWMD, as well as a technical grant by the wildlife com mission. “It is all a matter of sitting down and seeing what those grants can do for us so we can discuss how much the project will cost the city,” Porter said. This facility, along with many others proposed for the area, could bring hundreds of jobs to county residents, which would create econom ic gains for the area. At the meeting, Hunter said his main goal for this year is to propel economic growth by getting people to work togeth er, whether it be local builders and businesses or the city and county themselves.Jobs drive everything“We are going to change the way we do business in the retail and manufacturing industry,” he said. “We have to work together in our com munity to make things hap pen because everyone has something this county needs to see.” Hunter said he plans to put efforts toward getting the city and county to work together in terms of utility work to give industries incen tive to move to the area. “We have a very unique situation in which two gov ernments overlap,” he said. “When industry comes in, the county is very limited in utilities, so the city has to be the provider.” He said that the city and county must work out agree ments together so that future agreements can be made with incoming business prospects. Everyone has to be on the same page to ensure a posi tive outcome, Hunter said. “We have to work hard to make the best decisions for our constituents,” he said. “We don’t want to counter act positive things and lose industry because every thing we do, every decision we make, is driven by jobs.”Target coming?Hunter spoke about an aviation-related company to come to town, which would employ about 250 new work ers. “It will be necessary for high schools and colleges in the area to put together acad-emy programs so that work ers will be available for hire in these positions,” Hunter said. In response to a question at the meeting, he also said there is the possibility of a Target retail store coming to the area. “I have not met with any one above the local level, but a lot of people are pushing for that, and we will continue to push for that, because it’s a popular store,” Hunter said. He said there has been talk between the county and the corporation, and the store will be built eventually, but only when the retailer is ready. Hunter said the depart ment also plans to help Monsta Clothing Co., a work-out clothing business that is opening a new store on State Road 47. The company exports to nearly 40 coun tries and is continuing to grow, he said. Hunter did not specify what kind of assistance might be offered the company. He said that the problem with further developing State Road 47 is that there is no water system, as it is outside city limits. However, he did say it is something he would like to see in the future to alleviate some of the crowd ing on US Highway 90.Working together“Instead of saying things look good as they are, we need to do something about them by getting the city and county together,” he said in an interview after the meet ing. Hunter, who was installed as economic development director in May, said that he knows it is going to be dif ficult getting the two gov ernments to agree in certain situations, but he is ready for it because he believes it is the only way things can get done in Columbia County. “Jobs are the start to get ting things done in Lake City. They will get us where we need to be,” Hunter said. “But the creation of jobs can’t happen without the efforts of everyone. We have to work together.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterMichael Newton (right), 16, watches as his friend William Blalock, 1 5, retrieves his basketball from the algae bloom infested Gwen Lake on Wednesday. ‘I fished in this lake, but since it has gotten algae in it you c an’t catch catfish in it like you used to,’ Blalock said. GWEN LAKEContinued From 1A ECONOMICContinued From 1Astudents could take as many as they wanted. A dozen high school students in the district graduated with their associate degrees in May, and most expect it to be even fewer under the new policy. To earn an associate’s degree, stu dents need 60 credit hours. Most dual enrollment courses are three credits each, so if students begin taking dual enrollment classes their second semes ter of their sophomore year and take three courses a semester, they’ll have 45 college credits. Students who qualify for dual enroll ment can also take an unlimited number of courses in the summer, so they could potentially earn an additional 15 credits over the summer to get the 60 credits required for an associate’s degree. But it’s unlikely many students can — or will — do that.‘Disheartened’ by change“These restrictions will definitely make it more challenging on our students in Columbia County. While students can technically still take classes during the summer, this could be made difficult as many students work summer jobs. Because of this, we will likely see a lower number of students graduate from Florida Gateway College while still enrolled in high school,” FGC public information coordinator Troy Roberts said in a pre pared statement. “We are disheartened to see that our students in Columbia County, in the future, may not be given the same oppor tunity as their peers in our surrounding counties. At Florida Gateway College, we strive to provide the best educational opportunities to the students in our dis trict. We believe that our state-mandated Dual Enrollment program is part of this. It is also our belief that any student who is capable of and has the ability of perform ing at the college level should be given that chance.” ‘More in line with the state’Superintendent Terry Huddleston said the policy change was made in part to put Columbia County’s dual enrollment policy more in line with other counties’ policies. Some counties in the state have even stricter dual enrollment policies than Columbia’s new one, McElhaney said, citing the limit of 10 classes for dual-en rolled students in Clay, Putnam and St. Johns counties. “It just got to where we had to be more in line with the state,” Huddleston said. However, of the five counties that offer dual enrollment through FGC, Columbia County is the only one to restrict how many courses students can take, Roberts said. Dual enrollment is also costly to the district. Due to a state law that took effect in 2013, the district now has to bear the cost of dual-enrolled students’ tuition and textbooks. Under a compromise FGC and the district reached in October 2013, the district pays 65 percent of the normal cost per credit hour and 75 percent of the normal cost of books for its students. Still, one three-credit class, including textbooks and access codes, which are required for many FGC classes, costs the district about $1,000, Huddleston said. Prior to that, the college covered the cost of tuition and textbooks for students in dual enrollment.Money, grades also factorsAlso, beginning this school year, dual enrollment affects how much money the district gets from the Florida Department of Education. The district gets a certain amount of money for each of its students. Previously, the district got the same amount of money for each of its students regardless of whether they were in the dual enrollment pro gram. Under the new policy, the district only gets the full amount of money for each student if all of the student’s cours es are being taken at a county high school. Since high school students take seven classes, if a student is only taking four classes at the high school, the dis trict only receives 4/7 of the money it would have for each student. Huddleston said another reason for the policy changes is that many of the students in the dual enrollment program were not doing well in their classes at the college. To hold students accountable for poor grades, the policy has been changed so that if students receive a D+ or lower in a dual enrollment class, they can’t partici pate in dual enrollment the next semester, McElhaney said. After one semester not in those classes, students can then con tinue taking courses at FGC. Before this policy change was made, there was no punishment for getting a D or F. Forty-four of Columbia High’s 168 stu dents who took classes at the college during the first semester of the 2013-14 year recieved a D or an F in at least one of their classes. Of the 159 students who took dual enrollment courses during the second semester, 46 got a D or an F in one or more of their courses. Fifteen of Fort White’s 59 students in dual enrollment during the fall received a D or F. During the spring semester, 19 of the school’s 67 dual enrolled students got a D or an F. McElhaney said she believes the new policy will motivate students to do better in their classes. “Usually, once you set a standard, achievement goes up,” she said. Diplomas are top priorityWhile the district does want students to earn college credit, its primary con cern is getting students their high school diplomas, and failing college classes is not helping them do that, McElhaney said. Students’ grades in their dual enrollment classes don’t just affect their high school GPAs; those also factor into their college GPAs after high school, she said. Huddleston said it’s financially irre sponsible to pay for students to take class es that they fail. The district pays dual-en rolled students’ tuition and textbook bills. “We can’t pay for students who get D’s and F’s,” McElhaney said. “If you’re going to take dual enrollment, you need to be ready for it.” This policy will be voted on by the school board on Tuesday. ENROLLMENTContinued From 1A study, but were told by Susan P. Schoettle-Gumm, the council’s special assessment legal counsel, they were running the risk of missing deadlines for sending notifi cations to the public. Council members indicates they plan to have a mini-fire assessment study done next year to revis it the issue. Nick Patel, owner and operator of sev eral local hotels, was one of three people who voiced concerns about the proposed rates. He gave documentation to council members that indicated not all the data used in the study was being considered equally in tabulating the proposed fire assessment rate. However, after the council’s decision, he said he understood the time constraints the council was fac ing. “I think the hotel industry presented a case and I believe it was a valid case,” he said after the meet ing. “There was some eagerness from the council members to revisit the data and recalculate the data, but unfortunately the timing offered to them by Tindale and Oliver was not sufficient, but I could see that they wanted to recalculate the num bers by removing insufficient data which has been included in the study.” He said he will still be impacted by the 57 percent increase. “It’s better than we had before,” Patel said, noting the initial 71 percent fire assess ment rate increase proposed in the study would have been a financial burden for hotel owners. “At the end of the day the council has made a decision and we’ll have to live with it for one more year and hopeful ly we can revisit this next year. It is going to be OK for us, but for smaller hotels I think it’s going to be really painful.” FIRE RATEContinued From 1A ‘At the end of the day the council has made a decision and we’ll have to live with it for one more year.’— Nick Patel, hotel owner Bonus, pay hike proposal is questioned at city workshop By TONY City officials unveiled the city’s proposed $53.4 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year, which included a three percent one-time bonus for most city employees. However, salary increases for some employees did not pass mus ter with council members at the Wednesday afternoon workshop. Wendell Johnson, city manag er, proposed salary increases for Assistant City Manager Grayson Cason, Utilities Director Steve Roberts and Finance Director Donna Duncan. The budget included a proposed salary increase of more than $7,000 for Cason, about a $7,000 increase for Roberts and about a $5,000 increase for Duncan. Councilman Zack Paulk ques tioned the $7,700 salary increased proposed for Cason. “I feel we need to come up with some pay structure that needs to be built into the position,” he said, noting he believed the salary increases for the three should be gradually implemented. “I’m offended, Mr. Paulk, that you’re judging my abilities,” Johnson said, noting giving pay increases is within the scope of his duties. Johnson noted that none of the three asked for pay increases. “I’m not saying any of them are not deserving. I would just like to have the justification for it,” added city council member Eugene Jefferson. “I’m not saying any of them aren’t great employees.” Mayor Stephen Witt defused the situation and said the issue could be revisited at a 4 p.m. budget today. “It doesn’t have to be all or noth ing,” he said, asking council mem bers to review the numbers and “sleep on it.” Councilman George Ward ques tioned why the proposal was for permanent raises for two or three people and a one-time bonus for the others. He noted that the pro posed raises for Cason, Roberts and Duncan equated to more than three percent. The 2014-15 fiscal budget, $53,420,372, is an increase of more than $4 million from the city’s adjusted $48,529,674 budget approved for 2014. Johnson said the budget pro cess was initiated this year with a number of general manage ment goals such as: Provide for operational and capital needs, no increase in property tax, contin uation of an affordable employ ee health insurance program, no unfunded pension liability and provide a cost of living increase or stipend for full-time employ ees.

From staff reportsThe 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 successful years of clean up, last years efforts expanded to include the Suwannees tributaries. The rivers that flow into the Suwannee suffer the same fate when trash and harmful garbage accumulate on river bottoms and along riverbanks. Last year, divers scoured river bottoms as volunteers worked on the river banks to remove literally thousands of pounds of trash. Its time to do it again this year. Volunteers are needed to organize cleanups on the Suwannee, the Santa Fe, and the Ichetucknee rivers. The 2014 cleanup will occur during a three-month window from September through November along the Suwannee River and its tributaries. Businesses, civic clubs, fishing and boating groups, churches, government agencies, non-profits, chambers of commerce, and groups of friends are all encouraged to participate. Go to the event map at 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 Shortly after registration, your cleanup will appear on the event map. Current Problems is available to assist you as you plan your cleanup and to provide supplies (grabbers, buckets, trash bags, etc.).

UF/IFAS Extension and Columbia County 4-H members answered these questions and more as they brought 4-H On-the-Go science activities to the Annie Mattox Park Summer Program at Annie Mattox Recreation Center on Tuesday. “Are these animals really real?” asked Alexis Kelly, 10, as she held a Cochin hen, a chicken of an Asian breed with feathery legs. Youth were able to catch, hold, feed and ask questions about sev eral breeds of poultry and waterfowl brought by Jen Chasteen 4-H Program Assistant and 4-H Poultry Club mem bers. The 4-Hers shared how they hatched the eggs from an incubator and about the different types of poultry and their uses. 4-H On-the-Go has brought STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities to various summer pro grams and day camps in Columbia County for the past two summers. The Annie Mattox Summer Program, which is funded by the United Way and pri vate donors, is an example of already established programs throughout the county that have benefited from extra hands-on activities and learning oppor tunities through 4-H. Derek Barber, Livestock and Natural Resources Agent, and Jenny Jump, Family and Consumer Science Agent, explained to youth how to tell the difference between a venomous and non-venomous snake. They also talked about the choices of soy, coconut and almond milk along with regular cow’s milk available at grocery stores. Antwoine Smith, 5, and Traviyania Hudson, 12, showed disgust at the mention of what snakes eat. Barber discussed with the group that a lot of snakes eat rodents and that they are part of a balanced natural food web. “They really enjoyed the science projects and being exposed to things they didn’t know before,” said Shandra Davis and Tia Richardson, directors of the Annie Mattox Park Summer Program. “We appreciated learning more about 4-H and being introduced to new things.” 4-H Agent Cindy Higgins showed youth how to grow radishes in a home made hydroponic unit made from a water bottle, Perlite (a soil-less grow ing medium) and a sponge. Sha’Teriah Richardson, 2, carefully cradled five tiny radish seeds in her hand as an older youth helped her bury them into the Perlite. “Through 4-H we expose youth, 5 to 18, to hands-on STEM, agricultural and leadership/citizenship activities and events,” explained Higgins. “We are proud that we can take 4-H programs, such as 4H On-the-Go, out into the community to reach a wider variety of youth. Everything we do they can use to help build a positive and successful future.” For more information about 4-H and UF/IFAS Extension call the exten sion office at 758-1030 or visit the Columbia County 4-H Facebook page at Columbia County 4-H, Columbia County, Florida.

The Bruiser Ba bes finished second in the nation in the U16 Gold Divis ion.

The Bruiser Babes are Ta ylor Miller, Sarah Sweetapple, Cayla Hintz, Rilee Stoddar d and Caitlyn Frisina. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High football is eas-ing into the fall season at a slower rate than years past. Florida High School Athletic Association regula-tions implemented last year require five days of practice before putting on full pads. “There are no two-a-days in the first week,” Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said Wednesday morning. “You have three days with helmets only and two days with shoulder pads and helmets. There is a three-hour window for practice and then an hour and 15 minutes of walk-through. That is with no pads and no conditioning.” Jackson’s team had even more time off on Wednesday when new players were given SCAT and ImPACT testing. SCAT is Sports Concussion Assessment Tool and both are baseline testing to have a data file on each athlete to compare if a concussion is suspected during the season. “Next week you can do two-a-days, but only on alternate days,” Jackson said. “Teachers are back next week, so we probably won’t do any two-a-days. We’ll get the best we can out of one practice.” Jackson counted up 28-30 varsity players that are out for the fall. “It was a little discouraging in the summer,” Jackson said. “We had some guys who didn’t show up and that hurt us this year. Some are out of town or out of state with another parent and they can’t help that.” The number is fairly consistent for the Indians, who had 35 on their final roster in 2013 after some junior varsity players moved up to the varsity. “We are pleased with the turnout since fall started,” Jackson said. “All the guys we were counting on are here. They are looking pretty good and are ready to go.” Fort White hit an injury trifecta of sorts with the last few days. Cameron White, who was discovered to have a hairline fracture after he wrote it off in the spring as a sprained ankle, was cleared on July 25. Randall Fraddosio, who suffered a bone contusion and missed all of spring and summer, was cleared on Monday. Justin Young, who also missed spring and summer, was cleared Monday after a second surgery for a broken wrist suffered last year was successful. “You are talking about three starters,” Jackson said. “It gave the team a big boost by having them back.” Like last year when a scheduled opponent dropped football, Fort White has two open dates in 2014. Jackson is working to fill one of those dates (Sept. 27 or Oct. 10). Regardless, the kickoff classic is in place — at Dixie County High on Aug. 22 with kickoff time of 7:30 p.m. Fort White hosts Hamilton County High in the opening game of the season at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 29. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s CJ McCoy runs the ball during practice on Wednesday.

JASON MATTEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida offensive lineman Max Garcia conducts an interv iew on Sunday. By BRANDON Florida head coach Will Muschamp talked a good game when it comes to expectations for the Gators’ upcoming season. The big question remains, however, will the Gators score enough points to reverse their 4-8 record? The plan for a new offense, that enables the Gators to put more points on the board, has been brought in by Kurt Roper. Roper guided Duke’s offense to a BCS Bowl last season. Muschamp says the Florida players have liked what they’ve seen through the spring. “I think the players have been very receptive,” Muschamp said. “Part of the reason why I made a change, I felt like they lost confidence in what we were doing. You can continue to do the same things and get the same results or you need to make a change.” Muschamp said while there will be some changes, the philosophy which he’s preached since arriving at Florida won’t change. “Philosophically, we’re not going to be different,” Muschamp said. “We’re going to be balanced in what we do. That was one of the things in talking to Kurt when I interviewed him was about the balance that he wants to have offensively. You look at his numbers at Duke and Mississippi and all the places he’s been and that’s been that’s the way they’ve been.” But the one thing that will be noticeably different is the amount of snaps com-ing out of shotgun. “Schematically, drastically different from being in the gun, creating more tempo, which we had plan to do that last year and we never got to it after Jeff’s (Driskel) injury,” Muschamp. “I think our players have been very receptive. I think our play-ers had success against a pretty good defense in the spring. Build confidence in what we’re trying to do. I think they are excited.” Muschamp didn’t want to say that the Gators wouldn’t do anything from under center. And he still believes that Florida can have suc-cess out of those forma-tions. He went as far to say that Florida could have had success out of those forma-tions last season, but inju-ries plagued the season. “Well, I don’t think it was really fair to judge us last year offensively with some obvious things that hap-pened to us,” Muschamp said. “You go back and look at the numbers and some-times statistics can lie to you or they can tell you the truth. I feel Jeff is more comfort-able being in the shotgun. That is the bottom line.” Muschamp relied on a little Florida history to tell the media why the Gators would still use formations under center. “You go back and look, and you still can maintain the physicality you need to have and do that,” Muschamp said. “Steve Spurrier never got in the shotgun until 1996 and he won four SEC Championships before he ever did it. To sit there and say you can’t play from under center at Florida is ridiculous too.” Still, Muschamp was open to changing things up after a season that fell below expectations. “But, to fit our roster, it was the best move for us in my opinion,” Muschamp said. “In looking for that type of coach that I felt like to be good moving forward, Kurt Roper was the best guy for the job for us mov-ing forward.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterNick Washington (left) interviews wide receiver Ahmad Fu lwood during the Florida media day on Sunday.Woods arrives to test back at PGABy DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. — After a bit of confusion, Tiger Woods finally arrived at Valhalla on Wednesday. Now, to determine if he’s fit enough to compete in the PGA Championship. For three days, there has been speculation about whether Woods’ ailing back would allow him to play in the final major of the year. He was at least going to give it a shot, after some miscommunication with the PGA of America. The organization sent out a release about noon saying Woods was at the course. Then, officials said they weren’t sure he had actual-ly arrived. About 1:15 p.m. EDT, Woods pulled into his reserved parking spot. He didn’t seem be in any pain as he got out of the car and changed shoes. Sporting sunglasses and a goatee, Woods headed straight to the driving range with caddie Joe LaCava. Hundreds of fans crowded around a staircase as he crossed over above them, snapping photos of the 14time major champion with their phones. He pulled out a wedge and started his ses-sion with some easy half-swings, eventually working his way up to the driver. Woods moved slowly but showed no visible signs of discomfort as he bent over to tee up his ball. After less than an hour on the range, he strolled to No. 1 for a practice round with Steve Stricker, Davis Love III and Harris English, about 18 1-2 hours before his scheduled Thursday morning tee time. Woods has never missed three majors in one year since he played his first one as a 19-year-old amateur in 1995. Woods had back surgery on March 31 and was out for three months, skipping the Masters and the U.S. Open. He returned in late June for the Quicken Loans National at Congressional, where he missed the cut by four shots. He finished 69th at the British Open. At the Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday, Woods injured his lower back on the second hole of the final round after hit-ting an awkward shot from above a bunker and landing hard when he jumped back into the sand. He was driven off the course after his tee shot on the ninth hole and headed home to Florida for treatment. This was the latest Woods has ever arrived for a major. He has not seen Valhalla since he won the PGA Championship in 2000 in a playoff over Bob May. Woods was recovering from reconstructive knee surgery in 2008 when the Ryder Cup was played on the Jack Nicklaus design. Woods’ absence led to endless photos of his vacant parking spot. Now, that spot is filled.“He still has a huge impact, especially on the media side,” Rickie Fowler said. “You can see all the attention with last week WD’ing and this week not registering, not sure if he’s playing yet. I want to see Tiger around, but I want to see him healthy and at his best.” Woods must win the PGA Championship to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs. More realistically, he wants to show U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson that he is healthy enough for the September competi-tion in Scotland.Dufner hurting as he tries to defendLOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jason Dufner is hurt-ing as he defends his PGA Championship. Dufner has a sore neck because of a degenerative arthritic condition. He also blames himself for not stay-ing in better shape. The 37-year-old Dufner had an epidural early last week, then tied for 66th at Firestone. He feels like the only way to get healthy is to take six to eight weeks off, but can’t afford to do that with the Ryder Cup approaching. Dufner is eighth in the points and figures he needs to earn one of the nine auto-matic spots to be on the team. Given his health, he wouldn’t expect to be one of the three picks by U.S. captain Tom Watson. If Dufner qualifies, he may sit out the FedEx Cup playoffs to ensure he’s healthy.Garcia back in the mixLOUISVILLE, Ky. — The only thing worse than being mentioned as the best play-er without a major is not being mentioned at all. Sergio Garcia is back in the conversation. The 34-year-old Spaniard is No. 3 in the world, his highest ranking in five years. He arrived at Valhalla for the PGA Championship coming off a pair of runner-up finishes. He briefly chal-lenged Rory McIlroy at the British Open and then lost a three-shot lead to McIlroy at Firestone. Fifteen years after his first close call at a major, Garcia looks as poised as ever. “It’s been a good year,” Garcia said. “Obviously, a lot of high finishes, some really good chances of winning tournaments. Unfortunately, it’s only happened once this year in Qatar, but I’m excit-ed about it. It’s another big week here in Valhalla. We’re going to try to do more of the same and keep playing well and see if we can be there again on Sunday and have another good chance.”


4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: I just finished reading the letter from “Pressured” (April 23), the wife whose hus band keeps track of how often he and his wife have had sex and his determina tion to have sex 100 times per year. She was wonder ing if this is normal. I can tell her that my for mer husband thought we should have sex five times a week. He kept a calendar of when we had sex that also included who initiated it. I explained to him that I was more than willing to have frequent sex, but that he also had to be an atten tive, caring husband. Our marriage counselor believed he was suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression and was probably a diagnos able narcissist. Surprise, surprise! He pronounced our marriage counselor to be inept and divorced me. “Pressured” says she has a good marriage, so I assume that means she has a caring husband. I would advise her to do her best to enthusiastically and creatively meet his needs. Most men express love and feel loved by having sex. Scorekeeping could be his ineffective attempt at com municating his need to feel loved. — THE EX-MRS. DEAR EX: Thank you for writing. The saying “men are from Mars, women are from Venus” aptly applies to the responses I received from my readers about that let ter. Read on: DEAR ABBY: Most guys may keep track of how often they’re having sex, although more likely it’s how long since the last time, or maybe how many times a week. But this guy is an idiot for letting his wife know that he’s tracking it, let alone that he has a goal of 100 times. Hopefully he’s not procreating, just “recre ating” in bed. Abby, I thought you knew men better. “Fifty great versus 100 ‘so-so’ times” -are you kidding? Surely you know the say ing, “Even bad sex is pret ty good sex.” We guys will take it any way, any how, anytime. For us, it’s all good, all the time. — DAN IN IRVING, TEXAS DEAR ABBY: Unfortunately, my hus band also likes to keep a running tab of our sexual frequency. It galls me. I saw a movie years ago in which a couple saw the same therapist and one tells the counselor, “We NEVER have sex! We only do it three times a week.” While the other says, “We have sex ALL THE TIME! We do it three times a week!” We must consider the other person and his or her needs, whether they’re emotional, sexual or phys ical. Emotional and phys ical are not necessarily the same. — DENISE IN MICHIGAN DEAR ABBY: For most men, sex is just a little less important than breathing and eating as essential to our existence. Men are getting fed up with being deprived. I have often considered extramarital sexual pursuits, and I feel I’d be justified in doing so. I know I’m not alone. Men have needs, and should have a right to share intimate relations with their wives. If not, we should be given the green light to fulfill our needs elsewhere. — JAMES IN KENTUCKY HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Working in unison with someone creative will bring out the best in you. Your extensive, comprehensive vision and expressive way of articulat ing what you want to do or see happen will help you gain momentum and the support required to excel. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Family matters must be handled quickly and conservatively before they have a chance to spin out of control. A miscalculation or under estimating the extent of a situation you face will lead to frustration, limitation or complaints. A conserva tive, diplomatic approach will win out in the end. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Give whatever chal lenge you pursue your best shot. Staying on top won’t be difficult, but getting there will. Stick to the route that offers a straightforward approach and less uncertain ty regarding the results you are trying to achieve. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Strive to do something unique that will draw positive attention to who you are and what you can do. Personal improve ments can be made as long as they are reasonable. Travel plans must not be allowed to go over budget. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Jump at the chance to show off. Any competitive event or activity will add to a fun-filled day. A change in location or a mini trip will spark your imagination and help you bring about a positive personal change. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let your intuition guide you in the right direction regarding per sonal matters and relation ships. Taking part in neigh borhood or community events will give you a bet ter idea of what’s available to you and what compensa tions will be required. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional matters will be difficult to control. Don’t make impulsive decisions or rely on unpredictable individuals making unreal istic promises. Take care of important issues and you will have no regrets. Don’t let anyone interfere with taking care of your respon sibilities. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An offer you receive isn’t likely to be realistic or to your advantage. Go over details carefully and back away from anything or anyone that appears to be unstable. Take over and you will be able to control the out come. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Explore the possibilities. Learn what you can from those in key positions and make chang es that will help you move into a winning situation. Altering the way or where you live is favored, but don’t overspend or make unrealistic promises. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at the facts and make decisions based on your findings. Impulse will be your down fall. Take the slow, cautious route that ensures you end up in the right place and with the knowledge and skills to carry on success fully. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take care of pressing matters quickly and get on with your day. Take any opportunity that comes along to have fun. The break will do you good and give you a chance to consider the direction you want to pursue. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be careful how you handle money, peers and your responsibil ities at work. Don’t leave any room for error and you will avoid complaints. Romance is in the stars, and nurturing and being attentive will improve your personal life. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Battle of the sexes over sex ignites feedback from readers Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.
