The new policys course limit makes it difficult for students to get their AAs, but Supt. Terry Huddleston told the Lake City Reporter on Friday that because of the exemptions that will be granted, he doesnt expect the number of high schoolers in the county who graduate with an Associate of Arts degree to go down. They can still do that. They can still get an AA, he said. I dont think it will reduce the AA people. I think the number of students getting their AAs will stay relatively the same. I dont have any intention of students not getting their AAs. That would be ludicrous. Huddleston said Wednesday he would grant a very small number of exemptions to the districts new dual enrollment policy. But as reported in the Thursday edition of the Lake City Reporter, in that same meeting on Wednesday, which Assistant Supt. Kitty McElhaney also attended, McElhaney indicated that the number of students graduating with their AA degrees would go down because of the policy change.Criteria unclearAlthough Huddleston could not say Friday exactly what it is that academically talented students will need to qualify for an exemption, he said another factor that will play into whether students are allowed to take more than three college classes a semester is high FCAT scores. Kids through middle school that are just exceptional students, not only academically (exceptional), (but) socially mature, are the students who will be Exceptions to be made on dual enrollment Superintendent now says no talented student will be denied shot at degree.By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County attorney position is up for election this year, and although the new attorneys salary wont be decided until after votes are in, the county manager said he is sure the pay is going up. The newly elected county attorney will definitely be getting paid more, said County Manager Dale Williams. It is unrealistic that anyone would work for the same as what [Feagle] is working for now. Under Florida law, the county attorneys salary is determined by negotiations between the office holder and the county. Current County Attorney Marlin Feagle has been paid $100 an hour since 2006, when he and the county negotiated and agreed on a $25 per hour raise. He also has a signed agreement to work at County attorney quirks WillowBrook Assisted Living residents Jack Shepard and Connie Jones congratulates the newlyweds. I think this is great, Shepard said.

The Senate Reapportionment Committee approved the plan on a bipartisan, 7-0 vote. Not long after that, the House Select Committee on Redistricting voted 8-5 along party lines to move the proposal to the floor in that chamber. The conflicting votes appeared to reflect differences between House and Senate Democrats on whether to join the Republican majority in backing the maps. The three Senate Democrats who voted for the plan --Minority Leader Chris Smith of Fort Lauderdale, Audrey Gibson of Jacksonville and Bill Montford of Tallahassee --said their support was tentative. I do look forward to dealing with this map and others on the floor, Smith said. Meanwhile, House Democrats tried unsuccessfully to get Republicans to accept a different version of the map drawn by Sen. Darren Soto, D-Orlando. House Minority Leader Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale, didnt directly answer when asked whether he was disappointed with his counterparts in the Senate. The special session was sparked when Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis threw out two congressional districts approved in 2012, saying they were drawn to help Republican candidates in defiance of the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts standards approved by voters in 2010. Lewis found that the GOPdominated Legislature put more African-American voters than nec-House, Senate committees approve new districts Plan to alter seven districts now headed to House, Senate floors for a final vote. DISTRICTS continued on 6AIn the middle of Chelsey McCauleys wedding reception, one of her guests, Greg Harden, handed her and her new husband, Clayton McCauley, a white bag with tiny pink flowers on the bottom half of it. Someone very special wanted you to have this, he said. Chelsey reached into the bag and pulled out a black picture frame. As soon as she saw the picture, she started crying. Then Harden handed her an envelope. As Chelsey and her groom read the card, her tears began to flow faster. The picture was of Greg Hardens grandmother, Leona Harden, and the card was signed by her. Leona was one of Chelsey and Claytons patients at WillowBrook Assisted Living, where they work as nursing assistants. But she was so much more than just a patient to them. She was like their grandmother, they said. Leonas daughter-in-law, Gail Harden, said Leona used to say to Chelsey as she put her to bed, Dont you want to get in bed with me and take a nap? Thats the kind of relationship Chelsey and Clay have with a lot Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter


Henry Stone, fixture on disco scene, dies at 93 MIAMI — Henry Stone, a fixture on the R&B and disco scene who was instrumental in the careers Ray Charles, James Brown and KC & the Sunshine Band, has died. He was 93. Stone, a co-founder of the famed TK Records, died Thursday of natural causes at a Miami-area hospital, the funeral home Riverside Gordon Memorial Chapels con firmed. Stone opened up a record-distribution busi ness and recording studio in South Florida in 1948 and within a few years recorded his first artist, a pianist-singer from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind who would later become the legend ary Ray Charles. Stone’s hits were on TK Records, which he co-founded with Steve Alaimo in 1972, and sim ilar labels he founded. They included: “Get Down Tonight,” ‘’That’s the Way (I Like It)”, “Shake, Shake, Shake (Shake Your Booty)”, “I’m Your Boogie Man” for KC & the Sunshine Band and “Ring My Bell” for Anita Ward. The group’s co-founder, Harry Wayne “KC” Casey, said he started recording bits of music when the studio was free while working part-time at TK Records. Casey co-wrote “Rock Your Baby” with Richard Finch in 1974 and it became the songwriters’ first No. 1 pop single for TK when singer George McRae recorded the hit version. Casey said Stone was his “mentor” and “believed in me when no one else did.” Vet who found Hitler’s top hat dies at 88 ALBANY — Richard Marowitz was just a day removed from witnessing the horrors of Dachau when he found a top hat on a shelf in a closet in Adolf Hitler’s Munich apartment. Still furious over the gruesome sights he had seen at the nearby Nazi concentration camp, the 19-year-old self-described “skinny Jewish kid” from New York threw the black silk hat on the floor, jumped off the chair he had used to reach it and stomped Hitler’s formal headwear until it was flat. “I swear to this day I could see his face in it,” Marowitz told The Associated Press in a 2001 interview, recalling how he “smashed the hell out of it.” Marowitz, who brought the souvenir back to New York after World War II ended, died this week at age 88 at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Albany. His son, Larry Marowitz, said on Friday that he died Wednesday after bat tling cancer and dementia. In a 2003 interview he gave to an upstate New York high school’s WWII oral history project, Marowitz told how he and his comrades sped their Jeeps through German convoys and enemy posi tions, firing their guns all the way. “As we got closer to Dachau, we got this awful smell,” Marowitz recalled. They were among the first American soldiers to enter the concentration camp, where the GIs found bodies stacked inside rail cars and ema ciated inmates who were barely alive. “The prisoners were just walking skeletons, and they just dropped where they were and died,” Marowitz said. The next day, the 19-year-old scout was among a group sent to search Hitler’s Munich apartment. While look ing in a closet, Marowitz found a top hat with the initials “A.H.” on the lin ing. He jumped up and down on the hat a few times in anger. It was April 30, the day Hitler committed suicide in his bunker in Berlin. “When he heard some skinny Jewish kid stomped all over his favorite hat, he committed suicide,” Marowitz joked to the AP in 2001. Marowitz also is survived by his wife of 65 years and their two daughters. 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 TAMPA O ne man has died and another is seriously injured after authorities say they were struck by two cars while lying in the middle of a southwest Florida road. Florida Highway Patrol offi cials said Stacey Arthur Butcher, 42, of New Port Richey and Christopher Momier, 24, of Gibsonton, were lying on an unlit road Friday night wearing dark clothes. Two cars ran over the men. Authorities said both drivers stopped their cars. Butcher died at the scene. Momier sustained serious inju ries and was transported to Bayonet Point Medical Center. The crash remains under investigation. It’s unclear why the men were laying in the road way. Suspect hid in home during standoff ORLANDO — Central Florida authorities evacuated nearly two dozen homes after a suspect wanted for attempted murder barricaded himself inside a home, leading to an 11-hour standoff. Orange County Sheriff’s dep uties arrived at an Orlando area home Friday to serve James Hubert Stewart with an arrest warrant. When deputies arrived, two people outside the home ran inside. Multiple subjects were inside the residence. Authorities evacuated dozens of homes as they tried to coax 29-year-old Stewart outside of the home. Eventually, everyone left the house except Stewart. Authorities said they eventu ally found him hiding in an air handler inside the home. 6-year-old killed by pit bulls ID’d FANNING SPRINGS — Authorities have identified the 6-year-old boy who was killed after being attacked by two pit bulls at his aunt’s home. Levy County Sheriff Bobby McCallum tells the Ocala Star-Banner that Joel Chirieleison had been staying at with his aunt, Heather Claar, while his father was at work. Authorities that Claar had watched the boy for several weeks during the day and had never had problems with the dogs before. McCallum says the boy went outside to play Thursday while his aunt was watching TV and the two pit bulls followed him. Later, Claar looked outside and saw the boy lying in the driveway. The sheriff says the dogs were seized by Levy County Animal Control after the attack and were scheduled to euthanized Friday. 12-foot, 120-pound python captured PORT ST. LUCIE — South Florida police have captured a 12-foot, 120-pound Burmese python they believe was gob bling up neighborhood cats. Sgt. Frank Sabol said an offi cer responded to a Port St. Lucie neighborhood Friday morning after residents said they’d seen a large snake. The Palm Beach Post ( reports he extricated the snake from waist-high brush with the help of fellow officers. A dead cat was found in a nearby empty lot. Researchers believe pythons are decimating populations of native mammals in the Everglades. Many are believed to have been pets that were dumped once they grew too big; others likely escaped from pet shops during Hurricane Andrew and have been reproducing rap idly. Florida now prohibits owning or selling pythons for use as pets. Federal law bans impor tation and interstate sale of the species. Disney worker faces sexual battery charge ORLANDO — A Walt Disney World custodian has been arrested on a sexual battery charge after a co-worker says he attacked her in a closet at work. Authorities said Friday that the attack by Gideon Hunte on an Epcot worker occurred Thursday while the theme park was open. WFTV in Orlando reports that the woman told investigators that she yelled and resisted Hunte until he let her ago. She then ran to a supervisor who called authorities. Hunte was being held without bail at the Orange County Jail. A Disney spokeswoman didn’t return an email inquiry but said in a statement to WFTV that Hunte has been placed on unpaid leave. The statement says Disney has zero tolerance for such behavior. Grisly find in Bravo murder trial GAINESVILLE — Two hunt ers who discovered the bones of a slain 18-year-old University of Florida student told jurors they were drawn by a strong smell to the densely wooded area where the body was buried. Hunter Jesse Everidge tes tified Friday at Pedro Bravo’s murder trial that he was looking for medicinal herbs in a wooded area when he noticed the smell of death. Everidge said he immediately called 911 after following the stench and finding a human skull in the dirt. The remains were eventually identified as those of Christian Aguilar, a UF student who was dating Bravo’s ex-girlfriend. Prosecutors say a jealous Bravo murdered Aguilar and buried his body in those woods. Bravo denies it, saying the two fought and parted ways before Aguilar went missing.

He was 67 years old. Bacon, who served as the Lake City Reporter publisher from 2000-03, had more than 44 years of experience in the newspaper and media industry. Bacon was employed with CNI newspapers for 12 years before he became the Lake City Reporter publisher. If you ever met Rick, he left an indelible impression, said Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson. He had a unique sense of humor and a passion for life. Rick thrived on community journalism and he always served the communities where he lived and worked. He will be missed. Vern and Maureen Lloyd, co-founders of New York Day with Bacon, said the concept came up when they and Bacon started talking about how many people came from New York State and now lived in Columbia County. Rick was an easy person to work with, she said. He was very smart and very interested in things we had done in the community. His wife, Candy, and I were good friends, too. He was a wonderful person that really loved the community. He was quite involved if someone needed something, he did it. The three also worked together on the local United Way board of directors and the Lloyds credited Bacon in his work with them for premature babies through the March of Dimes. Maureen Lloyd said Bacon probably saved her life. She said he called her into his office to show her some photographs he had taken at a recent event. He showed her that one of her eyes was closed in many of the photographs and advised her to have it checked. It was cancer, she said. I had non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and hes the one who got me to the doctor. Right now Im living cancer-free because of Rick Bacon. He pretty much saved my life I think. I feel bad hearing of his passing. Bacon loved life, loved to laugh and was an avid baseball fan. He participated in fantasy baseball leagues with other Lake City Reporter employees and he was often quick to pick up a plastic baseball bat and challenge employees to a game of Whiffle Ball during employee cookouts at this home. His cars license tag bore the letters: PPR-BOY. He was a character, said Sue Brannon, Lake City Reporter controller. I just remember what a great boss he was. He had a great radio voice and you could always hear him, before you saw him, coming down the hall singing or humming a 60s tune. He was a great down-home guy. He was in Lake City a relatively short time, but he made a huge impact. Bacon, who came to the LCR from a CNI newspaper in Rockingham, N.C., was the first publisher at the Lake City Reporter after it was purchased by CNI from the New York Times. I remember his excitement about moving down here, Brannon said. Rick felt like it was an honor that he was allowed to come here and help us get accustomed to new owners after we were a New York Times Company paper, making sure the transition was smooth and the mission of community newspapers was instilled at this newspaper. Dink NeSmith and Tom Wood made a wise choice in sending him here I feel like he succeeded. He really got the best out of his employees. Bacon was raised in Burnsville, NC., the younger of two children. He and his wife, Candy, who were married for 29 years, were most recently living in Lumberton, NC. They have three grown children, Jon, Melody and Bryan, five grandchildren and four rescue dogs. Bacon attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Mars Hill College. He served for four years in the U.S. Air Force and held a top secret cryptography job while stationed in Turkey and Italy. Most recently Bacon worked at Civitas Media newspaper The Robesonian in Lumberton, N.C., as community relations manager, a position he held since 2013. He also served as regional business development manager. Bacon held leadership roles as publisher and regional publisher with CNI Newspapers Inc. and Heartland Publications in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. Before his newspaper career, he spent a dozen years in broadcasting working with several radio stations in North Carolina.Locals remember former LCR publisher Rick Bacon, who served as publisher from 2000-03, died Thursday in N.C. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe 2014 school year is only days away and Saturday Sitel employees and area residents took part in a back-to-school bash where Sitel collected school supplies for the upcoming school year. Regina Jones, Sitel site director, said more that four bins of school supplies including bookbags, rulers, pencils, pens and paper were collected during the event. We have thousands of items that we collected, she said, noting Pati Barry from the Lake City site and Tina Sharpe from Valdosta, Ga., helped plan the event. Its been wonderful meeting some of the people from the community who just stopped by to see what Sitel is and bring supplies. Jones said it was the inaugural back to school collection event for Sitel and this year the employees decided to sponsor Chances for Children through this event. Were accepting donations for school supplies so [Chances for Children] will have them throughout the year, she said. Sandy Tice [Chances for Children executive director] does a lot with kids throughout the year and while they do need supplies at the start of the school year, they also need a supply to help with children throughout the year. Chances for Children Child Advocacy Center is a not-for-profit organization serving Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton and Lafayette counties. The back-to-school bash was held behind the Sitel facility, 1152 SW Business Point Drive, where several booths with childrens activities were featured. The activities included: Face painting, bracelet making, a toy duck pond, bounce houses, ice cream and snow cone booths. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office citizen unit fingerprinted children and the Lake City Police Department booth provided safety-themed coloring books and other safety materials. In addition several other booths were set up by Sitel employees with childrens activities. We served over 150 kids out here today, Jones said. This was a site event where our associates and employees got to participate and have their say. It was important to have an event like this for people to see that were Sitel, were here and we care. We have over 400 employees who work in our building and Chances For Children was one of the top charities they wanted to participate with and support.Giving children a chance Ciera Lounge (from right) prepares a cup of ice cream during Sitels Back to School Bash as Braylon Hayberg, Camaran Yesseen, Josh Griffin and Tyran Yesseen look on.

T he killing of Army Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene in Kabul by an Afghan soldier at a training academy and the refusal of Afghan politicians to agree on a new president seven weeks after the election call into question once more why the United States maintains a presence there. About 30,000 U.S. troops remain and the Obama administration wants to keep nearly 10,000 there after the end of this year. Gen. Greene, the 2,318th American to die in the war, was part of the U.S. mission to train Afghan forces to keep the Kabul govern-ment in power against the Taliban at least until the last Americans leave sometime in 2016. Complicating matters is that a U.S. troop presence past this year depends on the conclusion of an accord between the two countries on the rules governing the exten-sion. Mr. Karzai has said he won’t sign it, but both presidential con-tenders have said they would. Some Afghans may believe they can get rid of all U.S. personnel at the end of this year if they don’t elect a president to sign the pact. A growing number of Americans would probably appreciate that out-come, bringing this 13-year-old war, the nation’s longest, to an end. To the Editor:I do not know Mary Lee Rachal nor do I have any idea where Pinemount Elementary School is located. I keep reading these newspaper articles about the way some people are persecuting this poor teacher who is only trying to teach their undisciplined children. It reminds me of my first day in first grade, September 1927, Newton, N.J. I was playing with a little comb when Miss Drake saw me. She hit me on both hands so hard I had the marks of the ruler on my hands at the supper table. My father saw the marks and asked why I had them. When I told him, he got up from the table, yanked me off my chair and I was sent to bed without supper with many red marks of the razor strap on my legs and behind. This discipline worked. I became an A student and valedictorian of my high school class.

BY EMAIL: The dual-enrollment academic program that allows our county’s top students an opportunity to earn an associate’s degree — for free — by the time they graduate high school is a distinguished exam-ple of public education at its best. The program works, and preserving it should be a priority for the Columbia County School District. We do not need a policy that limits the course load of top-flight students. On Friday we learned such a policy, set to take effect this fall, will remain in place, but will include exemptions for all qualified stu-dents. Why even have a policy?We are in complete agreement with district officials that marginal and failing students should not be a part of the dual-enrollment program. Taxpayers should not subsidize a failing high-school student’s repeated attempts at college-level courses. In our view, students who earn D’s or F’s should be excused from the program alto-gether. They clearly are not ready for college-level courses and should be made to wait until graduation to pursue their studies. In addition, we believe students who can only muster a C aren’t truly ready for college yet either. Those students should be made to sit out a semester and sharpen their academic skills before returning to the college classroom. The taxpayers who are footing the bill — as well as the students themselves, who mar their permanent transcripts with every poor grade — deserve better. Let’s encourage all high school students to excel at their own pace and give them every opportunity to succeed. We would ask the school board to consider this on Tuesday night.A puzzling change in policy Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Spirit of fairness lacking at water management district TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1846, President James K. Polk signed a measure establishing the Smithsonian Institution. In 1921, Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken with polio at his summer home on the Canadian island of Campobello. In 1948, Allen Funt’s “Candid Microphone,” later titled “Candid Camera,” made its TV debut on ABC. T he lawyers at Suwannee River Water Management District just saved you, the Florida taxpayers, some money. But at the same time they just took away something of yours that is beyond price and that can-not be replaced. The following is a summation of this injustice to Florida’s citizens, carried out by our leaders and supposed protectors of our state’s resources. In May of 2014 members of Our Santa Fe River, Inc., first learned that SRWMD had issued to a farmer a water use permit (WUP) allowing an average daily rate (ADR) of 2.3142 million gallons and a maximum daily rate (MDR) of 33.1200 gallons, for land to be newly converted from silviculture to row cropping. This amounts to roughly 845 million gallons per year, to be withdrawn from the Suwannee, Santa Fe and Ichetucknee spring-sheds. SRWMD staff estimated this one permit would reduce the entire springflow of the Ichetucknee head-spring by nearly one percent. Given that the Santa Fe and Ichetucknee are deemed “Outstanding Florida Waters” and that SRWMD has categorized these rivers as “in recovery” (meaning they are already damaged by over-use of water withdrawals), OSFR initiated a legal challenge to prevent further damage to these tributaries of the Suwannee. Due to confusion over the deadline for submitting the challenge because of Memorial Day, a legal holiday, the challenge was inadver-tently filed one day late, and on June 18, 2014, the district dismissed the petition on the basis that it was not timely filed. OSFR then employed a law firm that cited five precedences where late petitioners had chal-lenges accepted due to “excusable neglect,” but the district intends to disallow this challenge, due to the technicality, at the Governing Board meeting on Tuesday in Live Oak. By not allowing OSFR its right to proceed, SRWMD has effectively shielded its shortcomings, faulty procedures, flawed science and thinking from being exposed before an Administrative Hearings judge where an objective authoritative judgment could be rendered. There are some problems which need to be addressed: the Three Prong Test in F.S. 373.223 needs to be defined; it was designed to pro-tect the public interest and existing users, and but now it is being used to issue permits, trending more toward “fast-track” operations, e.g. getting the permit allocated in the shortest time possible. Originally, this permit was requested for ten years, and as an afterthought, the applicant changed that number to 20 years, and this was granted to him just one week later, with no apparent justifications given by SWRMD. What science was used to determine an 0.84 percent flow reduction? What due diligence was the applicant required to sup-ply? Where is evidence that the 96-hour Aquifer Performance Test (APT) was done, that other districts require? Was due diligence done by the applicant or the district staff to examine existing neighbor users? Evidence exists that an immediate neighbor to the property has serious well issues on his land. Is this an example of water banking? It is no secret that the applicant wishes to sell his land and would not use this permit. Whether or not the water user implements row-cropping, or sells his land, the fact that the permit is issued for agriculture use does not make it mandatory that the district issue the permit. Thus we see that SRWMD, while protecting itself from dealing with hard questions for which they may have no easy answers, has followed the letter of the law, but they may have stepped over the line of good judgment and good public relations. Discriminating citizens who care about what is happening to their springs and rivers and other natural water resources, will question the actions of these governor-appointed leaders who are not protecting our state’s priceless and irreplaceable resources. The SRWMD Governing Board meets next Tuesday in Live Oak and on the agenda is the recom-mendation to deny continuation of the challenge. OSFR requests that all concerned citizens attend this public meeting and show sup-port for protecting our springs and rivers. The meeting is at 9 a.m. at Suwannee River Water Management District headquarters located at 9225 CR 49, on the eastern out-skirts of Live Oak. You are welcome and encouraged to speak for the rivers but that is not necessary. You might be asked to simply stand, if you support water conservation. Your help is sorely needed and appreciated.

He was 67 years old. Bacon had more than 44 years of experience in the newspaper and media industry. After lead ing the Daily Journal, he went to work at sister Civitas Media newspaper The Robesonian in Lumberton as community rela tions manager in August 2013. Bacon also served as regional business development manager.+HKDGEHHQJKWLQJFDQFHUwith incredible bravery and we had thought heretofore, success fully,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Civitas Media, which owns the Daily Journal. “Rick was a consummate professional, won GHUIXOIULHQGWHUULFVXSSRUWHUof the company, true baseball fan and a very funny guy. I will miss him every day both personally and professionally.” In addition to his duties at The Robesonian, Bacon was regional business development manager of Civitas Media’s Eastern Carolina Group of newspapers, which includes the Bladen Journal, Laurinburg Ex change, The Red Springs Citi zen and The St. Pauls Review. Bacon was known as an ex cellent advertising executive with a keen ability to help his customers grow their business es by implementing innovative and successful advertising and marketing programs. He held leadership roles as publisher and regional publisher with CNI Newspapers Inc. and Heartland Publications in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. Be fore his newspaper career, he spent a dozen years in broad casting, working with several radio stations in North Carolina. “Rick was a great guy and he will be missed. He had a won derful sense of humor that made working with him fun,” said Robin Walker, business devel opment manager for The Robe sonian who reported directly to Bacon. “But he was also a very good newspaper man who had great ideas that were essential during a time when the industry is facing so many challenges.” Bacon penned his own obit uary, which will be published soon in the Daily Journal. In it, he wrote: “Everyone who re members Rick is asked to cel ebrate his life in their own way; telling a ‘He wasn’t so bad’ or ‘What an ass’ story of their choosing. Boiled shrimp and a beverage of your choice should be part of any celebration.” Bacon was raised in Burnsville, the younger of two children. He and his wife Candy, who were married for 29 years, moved to Lumberton from Hamlet. They have three grown children, Jon, 0HORG\DQG%U\DQYHJUDQG children and four rescue dogs.Bacon was an avid fan of the Cincinnati Reds for more than 50 years and traveled around the country to watch them play. Bacon attended the Universi ty of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Mars Hill College. He served for four years in the U.S. Air Force and held a top-se cret cryptography job while stationed in Turkey and Italy. He served on a number of community and business boards. He was the immediate past president of the Rocking ham Rotary Club. He served on the board of directors of the United Way in Lake City, Flori da. The Mitchell County Cham ber of Commerce named him Chamber Member of the Year during his time as publisher there. He served for two years as a board member of the South Carolina Press Association. “The world is a smaller place today,” Bush said. “For the many of you who knew Rick and of his valiant and spirited struggle these last months, I’m sure you will be struck by the fundamental unfairness of his death. I hope, however, that you will be inspired by the quality of his gentle strength and great spirit in his last struggle. He was the bravest soul I ever knew.” Funeral arrangements are pending.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 least 220 hours per year at this pay rate, so he earns about $88,008 per year. If Feagle goes over the minimum 220 hours, he is compensated for those hours at the normal pay rate. He is also given health insurance and retirement benefits as a part of his total compensation. In 2011, Feagle earned an additional $9,762 dol lars, making his total sal ary $97,770. In 2012, he was paid an additional $21,680.50, which made his total earnings $109,688.50. In 2013, Feagle only earned an additional $100, making his total salary $88,108. According to Williams, Feagle opted to be paid later for additional hours during 2013 for tax pur poses. Columbia County is the only county in Florida to elect its county attorney. The option of changing to an appointed county attorney was on the ballot in 2012, but was rejected overwhelmingly by voters. Under the current sys tem, the newly-elected attorney and the county negotiate until they reach an agreement on pay. Williams said during his 30 years as county manag er, he does not recall any problems with the process. “If there any issues we would probably look for a state agency to help us resolve the conflict, but I really don’t think it is a risk or a problem,” he said. “Even in the event of an impasse, we will settle a contract.” Williams explained that Feagle has not asked for a renegotiation or a raise since 2006. He works at a much lower rate than most other attorneys, Williams said. “Columbia County has enjoyed a very favorable situation with [Feagle],” he said. “He is extremely competent and has worked for a wage well below what he is qualified for.” Williams said he believes Feagle worked at such a low rate to serve as a public service to the peo-ple of Columbia County. He believed it was the right thing to do as an elected official, he said. “I’m from Columbia County, I am all about Columbia County,” Feagle said. “I see the budget cuts and I didn’t think it would be fair of me to go back and ask the county for more money.” Feagle said he looked at what he was doing as a benefit to the county, or as a way to give back to the community he loves. “It really never was all about the money,” he said. “It was just my way of being good to a county that was always good to me.” Feagle said that along with being the county attorney, he also runs a private practice in which he can charge prices more in line with the going rate. “I would be very sur prised if the new county attorney doesn’t ask for more money,” he said. “I am sure they will negotiate it, and quite frankly, I think they really have to.” how much is unknown. Under state law, the new ly-elected attorney negoti ates a contract for services with the county. Current County Attorney Marlin Feagle works for $100 per hour, well below market rates. The Lake City Reporter contacted both candi dates for county attorney, Joel Foreman and Bruce Robinson, to ask what sal ary they plan to ask for should they be elected. “Any job, in govern ment or the private sec tor, should have the salary reevaluated from time to time,” Foreman responded by email. “When elected I look forward to thought ful and open negotiations in reaching an agreement that is in the best interests of the citizens of Columbia County.” Robinson also respond ed by email. “I will negotiate the rate fairly with the county based on the type of work to be done and the resources of the county,” he wrote. “I will take into account that it is governmental work and funded by the taxpayers.” SALARYContinued From 1A ATTORNEYContinued From 1A From staff reports Another duty of the county attorney is to help commissioners select outside counsel when issues arise requiring specialized help, such as in labor law and tax cases. While the county has the last say in deciding who to hire, County Manager Dale Williams said advice from the elected county attorney is vital. “We always consult with our county attorney before choosing an outside attorney,” Williams said. “The law is so specialized in some areas, so we try to find specialized legal professionals, with the blessing of the county attorney.” As of Aug. 5, the county had paid $183,297.72 to private legal firms in 2014. In 2013, the county paid outside law firms $215,273.05. In 2012 the figure was $220,681.15, and in 2011, $210,431.93. Of the four-year total of $829,683.85, $51,629.14 went to the firm of Foreman, McInnis & Associates Trust, of which candidate Joel Foreman is a principal. Foreman acts as conflict attorney for the county, taking on work that current county attorney Marlin Feagle declines due to potential conflict of interest. The remainder went to firms outside the local market. “In every instance that we have hired outside work, it has been because the county attorney has found it was in the county’s best interest to do so,” Williams said.Money spent on outside counselThe rest of the primary field Annual salaries for the other posts up for election during the Aug. 26 primary: Q U.S. Congress — $174,000 Q State representative — $29,697 Q County commission — $41,143 Q City council — $17,764.24 Q School board — $29,556 given exemptions to the new pol icy, Huddleston said. “There are many things that go into that.” Huddleston said the district always makes exceptions to its policies to accommodate its best students. “There are many policies we have to make exceptions for,” he said. “You have an academically talented child. We will accommo date that child.”Students with a planHuddleston said “academical ly talented students who have a plan” will be among those grant ed exemptions to the district’s new three-course maximum dual enrollment policy. He described students with a plan as those who took high school courses such as Algebra 1 in middle school. However, some of these students may not need to be granted an exemption to earn more college credits while in high school. By having earned high school credit in middle school, they might be able to begin their dual enroll ment studies earlier under the terms of the new policy. High schoolers are only allowed to start taking dual enrollment courses the semester after they earn 10 high school credits, the new policy says. For students who didn’t take high school courses such as Algebra 1 in middle school, they’ll earn 10 credits by the first semester of their sophomore year and will be eligible to begin taking dual enrollment courses their sec ond semester of their sophomore year. Most classes at the college that dual enrollment students take are three credits, so under the new policy, if students take the maxi mum number of courses allowed per semester, they will earn 45 col lege credits through their college dual enrollment courses. Students are allowed to take as many dual enrollment courses as they like during the summer, so students could earn the addi tional credits they need for their associate’s degree that way. Another way students can earn 10 high school credits before their sophomore year is by taking Florida Virtual School courses, Huddleston said. Students who qualify for dual enrollment at the start of their sophomore year can earn 54 college credits if they take the maximum three college courses each semester they’re allowed to under the new policy. An associate’s degree requires 60 college credits. The school board will report edly take up the matter Tuesday, though it was not on the agenda published on the district website as of Saturday. ENROLLMENTContinued From 1A of their patients. But if each of their patients is special to them, Leona is extra special. “She just had the best attitude and demeanor about her,” Clay said. “Whenever she talked to anyone, she would always grab their arm and say, ‘Hey, sweet heart.’” In June, Leona passed away but not before her family had her sign a wedding card for the couple she considered grandchildren. When Greg told Chelsey that was Leona’s handwriting in the card, her eyes widened and her sobs grew louder. Inside the card, Leona had written the Bible verse, Proverbs 3:5-6, which she used to read to Chelsey every night before she went to bed. The verse says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” Almost the entire Harden clan was at WillowBrook Assisted Living Facility Friday night to celebrate the McCauley wedding. Leona considered Chelsey and Clay fam ily, so the rest of their family thinks of them that way as well. “I wouldn’t have missed this wedding for anything. They’re a very deserving young couple,” Gail Harden said. “They (Chelsey and Clay) were so good to her up until she passed away in June. We couldn’t have asked for better caregivers. They truly love their jobs.” Clay said the card and picture hit Chelsey hard er than him because the night before Leona died, she said something else to Chelsey besides Proverbs 3:5-6 — some thing along the lines of, “Y’all come together for Jesus.” And on Friday at 6:30 p.m. at WillowBrook Assisted Living Facility, that’s exactly what they did.Hands to holdAbout 100 of their family and close friends sat in white chairs by the pond behind WillowBrook as the facil ity’s residents watched the ceremony from their patios. Chelsey and Clay’s boss, Debbie Brannon, the adminis trator at WillowBrook, officiated the ceremony. As Brannon prepared to hand the rings to the bride and groom, she said, “These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomor-row and forever. These are the hands that will work alongside yours as together you build your future. These are the hands that will pas sionately love you and cherish you through the years and with the slightest touch will com fort you like no other.” Chelsey’s three bridesmaids teared up as Brannon continued reading. Clay’s grooms men smiled earnestly. “And lastly, these are the hands that — even when wrinkled and aged — will still be reach ing for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch,” Brannon said. After Chelsey knotted a braid that Clay held to represent the cove nant they’re entering into with God through their new marriage and Brannon prayed, Clay kissed his bride, and the two walked down the aisle to “Ready, Set, Roll” by Chase Rice. Before the wedding party and the two families gathered for photos by the gazebo, Chelsey and Clay walked by the patios where their patients were sitting. Chelsey reached over the railings to give them hugs.‘A part of our family’When Chelsey and Clay got engaged on January 5, they knew they wanted each of their patients at their wedding. “I just feel like they’re a part of our family,” Chelsey said. “They (the facility’s residents) give us great advice.” But if they had their wedding anywhere besides WillowBrook, every patient who want ed to come probably wouldn’t have been able to. Not all of the residents have family members who could drive them to a wedding somewhere else, Chelsey explained. “Where else can you have so many witnesses who have 50, 60 or 70 years of marriage expe rience?” Brannon said.

District 5 is meant to provide black voters with an opportunity to elect a candidate of their choice. The judge also found fault with Congressional District 10, currently held by Republican Congressman Dan Webster, because of an appendage of white voters added to the Orlando-area district. Republicans say their new map is based on an earlier version of the 2012 congressional plan that Lewis seemed to indicate was better than the bill that passed that year. But legislative leaders say the new plan is better than the initial 2012 proposal, mak ing several districts more compact. “On every measure ment, we improved upon the map that (Lewis) spoke consistently of in a favor able light,” said House Redistricting Chairman Richard Corcoran, R-Land O’ Lakes. In all, the map approved Friday would alter those two districts and five more. DISTRICTSContinued From 1A

FHP has designated August as Child Safety Awareness Month. “School starts on August 18 and we want to encourage people to start paying attention again to where children walk and stand in school zones,” said Tracy Histler-Pace, public information officer for FHP’s Lake City-based Troop B. “We don’t want any tragic events happening during this school year.” The FHP campaign “Every Child is a Human Caution Sign” includes several tips and focus areas to remind drivers and pedestrians to put safety first when traveling to and from school. Officials are first making it a prior ity to urge drivers to take a second look behind their vehicles before getting in, as well as being cautious when backing up. “We are specifically putting out tips to help drivers when they are back ing up to prevent the large numbers of accidental injuries and death,” Histler-Pace said. “It is important for drivers to check behind their vehicle before and after getting in the car.” Another focus is educating par ents on the best ways to secure their children inside a vehicle. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives recommenda tions for parents to determine the type of restraint seat to best protect children under 12. Kids who are under 1 year of age should always ride in a rear-facing car seat, according to the NHTSA website. Children should be kept in a rear-fac ing seat until they have reached the height or weight limit recommended by the seat manufacturer. At age 3, it is generally safe to move a child to a forward-facing seat, NHTSA said. Once a child out grows this seat, which usually hap pens around age 4, it is time for them to use a booster seat. Once they are big enough to fit in a regular seat belt, NHTSA says it is OK for them to sit without additional restraint. NHTSA reminds drivers that it is always best for children to ride in the back seat because it is the safest place for a rider inside a vehicle. FHP is also focusing on pedestri an safety for children who wait for the bus or walk to school. Officials remind students to always make use of sidewalks and crosswalks. It is also important for pedestrians and bicyclists to dress in visible clothing and follow pedestrian signals, FHP said. “For the first week of school, troopers will be working in school zones and going around school bus stops to make sure both stu dents and drivers remember to pay attention without being distracted,” Histler-Pace said. She added that drivers should remember they are passing chil dren, so they should slow down significantly. The Lake City Police Department will also be patrolling neighborhoods and school zones, talking to people about bicyclist and pedestrian safety. “One of our main priorities is to get children to and from school safely every day,” said LCPD Public Information Officer Craig Strickland. “During the school day, school administrators have that covered, but before and after is the respon sibility of parents and the police department.” Histler-Pace agreed that the pub lic has a responsibility to keep each other safe during the back-to-school transition. “Children are the most wonderful things in our lives,” she said. “They are truly precious and we need to make sure that all the back-to-school activities go smoothly.” W ho is ready for another season of FGC Entertainment? The hottest concert series in Lake City is set to return in the coming months and promises to be one of our best sea sons yet. The 2014-2015 season will be the fourth season of the current iteration of entertainment at FGC, but the college has host ed entertainment much longer than that. Florida Gateway College, then Lake City Community College, launched the Lyceum Series in the ‘80s as a way to bring enter tainment to the area. The series focused on the arts and brought in a variety of acts that focused on culture. The Lyceum Series served its purpose, but began trailing off toward the end of its run; atten dance numbers were on the decline and the entire series needed a revamping to stay rele vant. So, with the blessing of our president, Chuck Hall, we went into the community. We asked what people wanted to see. We got feedback from our students; what did they want to see? And thus, FGC Entertainment was born. Our inaugural season featured country music stars Easton Corbin and Diamond Rio; Tony-nominated Broadway star Norm Lewis; popular variety acts like Barrage and Jason Bishop; and more. The season was a suc cess — during our last Lyceum season, we saw maybe 1,000-plus attend ees for the whole season. Our inaugural season of FGC Entertainment blew those numbers away — we saw more than 8,000 people attend our shows. The past two seasons have been just as strong. Popular performers such as Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Jars of Clay, Larry Gatlin, Cirque Ziva, and others have put Lake City on the map in the entertainment indus try. We feel like we’re on the right track, and thanks to numerous local businesses around town who sponsor this series year in and year out, we’re able to continue bringing quality enter tainment to Lake City. Now we’re on the verge of a new season. What’s ahead for 2014-2015? I’ll just say, as usual, there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re five or 85, you’ll find something to enjoy during our upcoming season. There’ll be some variety acts. There will probably even be some country music on the schedule, though in our area, that should come as no surprise — country music is king in North Florida. We plan on making our official announcement in the coming weeks, and the Lake City Reporter will be the first to publi cize our announcement. Be sure to keep an eye out for our upcoming lineup announcement. Until then, know that its worth the wait. We’re excited about what’s in store this season.

By TIM KIRBY Columbia High footballs annual father-son breakfast was Saturday at the First United Methodist Church. The tradition of fresh men parents cooking for the Tigers was contin ued and 165 attended the breakfast. First United Methodist Pastor Rev. Jeff Tate was guest speaker. Tate spoke of the peo ple he looked up to as a child, a progression from super-heroes to firefighters and police to teachers and coaches. The true heroes were those men who invested in my life, Tate said. My father was a great hero and a lot of you here have great heroes. All of us have great dad-figures. Tate spoke of his grand mother who, in the final stages of Alzheimers dis ease, could recognize no one and spoke only of her father. She always remem bered and talked about her dad, Tate said. In her eyes and mind that was fad ing, he was a super-hero. We fathers and father fig ures have that potential to be super-natural to our children. We can influence greatly the potential of their relationship with God and others. Tate said the word father is written 850 times in the Bible. One specific verse is Ephesians 6:4. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Tate, who has four daugh ters, tweaked the verse a bit, saying sometimes it may be necessary to make a child mad. Tate also told the story of King David and his sons, Absalom and Amnon. David faltered in his rela tionship with the two sons. Amnon defiled his sister and David took no action. Absalom give a banquet that David failed to attend, and Absalom eventually killed his brother. I believe it is because his dad failed him, Tate said. David did a better job with Solomon. It is com forting to know that 2,000 years ago dads were mess ing up when you and I are messing up today. Tate played four sports in high school at Tampa Chamberlain and played rugby in college. He is an Auburn graduate and a big War Eagle fan and cheers for his hometown Buccaneers. As for lessons he has learned, Tate listed: God is not just the first thing in your life, He is everything; Stand up for people who are picked on; If you mess up, step up and take the consequences; Surround yourself with people who are wise; Work harder than everybody else; Always give 100 per cent and make every moment count; Finish what you start; Be a good sport, kind and generous to everyone, and bring out the best in the player next to you. Tate had a story to go with the final point. In the football playoffs Manatee High of Bradenton beat up soundly on Chamberlain. Tommie Frazier was the quarterback for Manatee and Tate met him. He had run all over us, By TIM KIRBY FORT WHITE Much like his dad at Columbia High more than 20 years ago, Fort White Highs DJ Jackson will be called on to play quarterback with not many snaps under his belt. Anytime you lose your signal-caller, it is always tough, Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said when talking about the upcoming season. Fort White didnt just lose a quarterback to grad uation, it lost a four-year starter. Andrew Baker threw every pass that the Indians attempted last year and most all of them for the three previous seasons. Andrew was smart and ran the offense efficiently, and he was very durable, Jackson said. As Baker progressed to his junior and senior seasons, Jackson spoke of the two being on the same wavelength when the plays were sent in from the sideline. Jackson will now turn that responsibility over to DJ, who is entering his sophomore year. DJ is very capable, Coach Jackson said. He knows the plays and what to do. He has really grown. The tools are there he has good vision and a strong arm. He can make guys miss running and can throw the long ball. I dont care how good a quarterback is, though, if he doesnt have the experience. DJ has come up through the ranks at Fort White, but he was hurt early last season and missed some games. He needs to work on his progression and accu racy, Coach Jackson said. We dont do much passing in JV and middle school. Along with his dad, DJ has storied Fort White quarterbacks Jared Gilmer and Alex Gilmer working with him. In addition to coaching, the Gilmers offer a buffer between the head coach and his quarterback. We have two former quarterbacks helping us out, Coach Jackson said. Jared brings his skills and Alex had the talent to play in college. The combina tion is good for us. I am not just a coach, but the head coach and also (DJs) dad. The father-son combina tion will get its first live test in the kickoff clas sic game at Dixie County High on Aug. 22. Lake City Reporter SPORTS Story ideas?

Tate said. “When I talked to him after the game, he said, ‘I am never as good as I’m going to be.’” Gator fans who remember the 1996 Fiesta Bowl against Nebraska can attest to that. “You might remember great moments in a foot-ball game, but all that mat-ters in life is your relationships with God, family and friends,” Tate said to the fathers and fathers-to-be. “Being a dad begins in the heart. Children need some-one who will listen to them and time spent with them is invaluable. You need to be disciplined, so they are protected and know they are loved.” Columbia head coach Brian Allen and his staff and players left breakfast to go to the stadium for picture day. “This is our way to get the season started and I love the opportunity to go to different groups and houses of the Lord in the community,” Allen said. “It allows kids and dads to broaden their horizons.” Gordon wins poleAssociated PressWATKINS GLEN, New York — Jeff Gordon’s resur-gent season continues. Gordon turned a fast lap of 129.466 mph on Saturday to win the pole for the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen, edging road racing ace Marcos Ambrose and Hendrick Motorsports team-mate Jimmie Johnson in the second and final round of knockout qualifying. It was Gordon’s first pole of the season, his third at Watkins Glen where he has won four times, and 75th of his stellar career.


4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-04204BSportsI ’ve known Mike McRae for almost a decade, and we talk fishing every time we’re together. The irony is that we’ve never actually fished together. He was the P.E. coach at Summers Elementary, and I was the Tech Lab teacher during the fall of 2006. I knew the first time we met that he either spent more time sunbathing than the cast of The Jersey Shore, or he was a die-hard fisherman. There was no in-between. Here’s the difference between Mike and other fishermen: He doesn’t just talk a big game about fishing, he lives it. He thinks like a fish, he stalks fish like a fish, he eats like a fish (seriously he once ate fish six times in a week), and I think he might even have gills like a fish. This isn’t me telling a fish story — he’s a living, breathing fishing machine. Coach McRae is currently the P.E. coach at Pinemount Elementary, and the second he’s off the clock he fishes like there’s no tomorrow. It’s why I call him the “Kingfish Whisperer.” When he’s at home, he’s fishing off his family’s dock, catching bass and big specks. When he’s not at home he’s probably towing his 20-foot Cape Horn towards Suwannee. His parents, Dr. Barney and Mary Virginia McRae, raised Mike and all of his older brothers (Skip, Norman and Chris) on the water. They’ve owned a house in Lake City (currently on Lake Jeffrey) and on the Suwannee River since 1972. That’s what they knew growing up: eat, sleep, fish, eat, sleep, fish, and repeat. The unique thing about Mike is that he is completely unselfish. He catches enough fish between freshwater, saltwater and other waters to feed a village. So, what does he do? He basically feeds a village. He’s like the Santa Claus of fresh fish fillets. When Mike’s done fishing, he fills his sleigh (truck) with a sack (cooler) and presents (perfectly filleted fish), and then distributes them from Suwannee to Lake City. He probably leaves a trail like the gingerbread man of fish carcasses on the back roads he frequents. I love eating fish, but there are some fish that I’m not crazy about. Bluefish and their pelagic friends, kingfish and Spanish mackerel, aren’t my favorite. I’ll make a smoked dip out of them, but that’s generally it. Mike brought me a bag of Spanish mackerel to Summers Elementary one day — already fried, and left over from the night before. This was a recipe for disaster (literally), or so I thought. That fish tasted like it was the freshest grouper I had ever eaten. From that day on I never turned down a bag of fish from Mike. It could have been mudfish, and I’d have ordered seconds and thirds. Mike posted a report about two weeks ago that featured a banner day of redfish and big trout, and I had to experience it for myself. Was he really catching fish in the middle of the dog days of summer, while everyone else was struggling like John Brantley running the spread option? He must have been using old photos on Facebook I joked, but I knew if anyone was catching fish out of the 90-degree bathwater on our local flats it had to be him. So Mike and I met at their Suwannee River house about 5 p.m. Friday with a plan to hit the exact same spot that had produced the previous weekend. We didn’t waste any time, and the boat was already in the water (Mike had fished earlier in the day with his dad). We drove through the canal and he knew every one by their first name, their kid’s names, and even their dog’s names. After just a few hundred yards we cleared the canal and hit full throttle. We headed out to his secret spot. One thing you’ll learn about my articles is that I’m fiercely loyal to those who I fish with when it comes to “their spots.” Mike is in my circle of trust, and we’ve exchanged GPS numbers and information trip after trip, and I know I can trust him, and he can trust me. It’s mutually beneficial when you reach that level of trust. With that being said, we set up up somewhere in the water between Mexico, the Florida Keys, Suwannee and Destin.

A few quick meal solutions can help you spend less at the store and enjoy more time with your family this school year. Genie Norman, one of the Lake City Reporters Taste Buddies food columnists, said its important to be able to have quick healthy meals for the family in order to increase quality family time. Children going back to school need as much attention from their parents when they are home in the evenings to have quality time, help them with their homework, to talk about their day and just time to be a family, Norman said. If you are spending all your time in the kitchen, that time will be limited. Comforting and convenient, a store-bought rotisserie chicken with a few other additions can help you create a complete meal for the family in 30 minutes or less. However, quality is important. Norman said rotisserie chicken is a good choice for simple meals because its already cooked. Once its already cooked all youve got to do is the other part of the cooking, she said. If you want to make a casserole, your chicken is already prepared and youve already eliminated a big step. There are so many recipes now adays where you can take that already cooked rotisserie chicken and make tons of good dishes. Norman said the rotisserie chicken makes great casseroles, salads and sandwiches. Theo Weening, global meat buyer for Whole Foods Market, believes that the best tasting meat comes from chickens raised the old fashioned way. Preparing great tasting meat starts long before you bring it home from the store. It starts on the farm, Weening said. Check the label and opt for chicken that was raised the way nature intended on a vegetarian diet with no added growth hormones and no antibiotics ever. For example, some of the best chickens come from farms that have been certified to the Global Animal Partnerships 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating System, so consumers can know exactly how the animal was raised. While rotisserie chicken on its own is a delicious, easy go-to meal any night of the week, dont forget to shake things up. Try these simple ideas: Shredded in tacos or quesadillas: Quick and simple, chicken will be the star of this easily portable meal. Cubed in a cooked grain salad: Step up a side dish and make it an entre. Add chicken to whole grains, like brown rice or barley, for a filling meal. Added to rice and steamed veggies: Turn this plain dish up a notch with protein. Pair with your favorite sauce or dressing for extra flavor. Added to pesto pasta: Mix whole wheat pasta with pesto, chopped tomatoes and chicken for a well-rounded dinner.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! That’s the good news. The bad news is that all your impressive gains can quickly fizzle if you start taking money out of your retire-ment accounts. Suppose you take out $10,000 this year, 20 years from retirement, and you also fail to make your usual $10,000 invest-ment. Despite your good intentions, you probably won’t put in an extra $20,000 next year to compensate. So you’ll lose what the $10,000 you withdrew would have grown to in 20 years (at 10 percent): a little more than $67,000. (You’ll also have paid a hefty early with-drawal penalty.) And then there’s the additional $10,000 you would have invested, too: another $67,000 loss. Overall, your retirement could eventually end up more than $150,000 poorer. Is that worth it? If you’re in financial dire straits, it might be. But if you can avoid short-changing your future, you should definitely do so, leaving your retire-ment accounts to keep growing.

K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Home, Sweet HomeYes, shares of The Home Depot have been a bit depressed due to con-cerns over the strength of the housing market’s recovery. But there’s a lot to like about the world’s largest home improvement retailer, with more than 2,200 retail stores in North America. Its competitive advantages include its size, geographical presence, brand recognition and superior negotiat-ing power with suppliers. With price competitiveness a central industry factor, The Home Depot can keep costs down by spreading fixed costs over massive sales volume. It has also built a solid relationship with contrac-tors over the years, a key clientele in the home improvement business. The Home Depot has implemented a series of strategies to increase effi-ciency and streamline operations. The combination of growing sales and improving profit margin has been notoriously profitable for The Home Depot and its shareholders during the last several years. In its last quarter, revenue grew 3 percent year over year to $20 billion, with diluted earnings per share rising 20.5 percent. Management expects earn-ings per share to grow by a big 17.6 percent during fiscal 2014. The Home Depot has been returning billions of dollars to shareholders via aggressive stock repurchases, and its dividend yield was recently 2.3 percent. With its P/E ratio near 20, The Home Depot offers a good buying opportunity for long-term investors. (The Motley Fool’s newsletters have recommended The Home Depot.)

Later, I tearfully read my in-the-red investment report. The author of that brochure smiled all the way to the bank, think-ing, “There’s one born every minute.” I qualify as one born, so now I really pay attention to finan-cial advice! — P.D., Weymouth, Massachusetts The Fool Responds: Naive investors fall for hyped penny stocks all the time, and it hardly ever ends well. The company in question was trading around $0.04 per share when you wrote to us, which can entice investors thrilled at the idea of own-ing 25,000 shares for just $1,000. Factor in a hypester’s empty, self-serving declaration that the stock will double or triple soon, and it can be almost irresistible. But even stocks that seem like they have nowhere to go but up can still go down. That stock was recently trading for less than $0.02 per share. It’s best to avoid penny stocks entirely, but if you must consider one, look for growing revenue, little or manageable debt, profits instead of losses, competitive strengths and audited financial statements.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

When Sales Aren’t Sales (Yet)QWhat’s “the accrual method”? — H.W., Hattiesburg, MississippiAIt’s an important account-ing concept, because with the accrual accounting system, the “rev-enue” (sales) on a company’s income statement may not have actually been received by the company. Revenue doesn’t necessarily represent the receipt of cash in a sale. Many companies are required to book sales when goods are shipped or when services are rendered. But others can record sales when cash is received, or in increments as long-term contracts proceed through stages of completion. Imagine the Free Range Onion Company (ticker: BULBZ). With the accrual method, if it has shipped off a thousand crates of onions but hasn’t yet been paid for them, those sales still appear on the income statement. The checks in the mail are reported as “accounts receivable” on the balance sheet. It’s a red flag when receivables are growing faster than revenue. ***QWhat’s a “reverse merger”? — E.P., Norwich, ConnecticutAA reverse merger is also referred to as a reverse takeover or a reverse IPO (initial public offering). It’s a way that some private compa-nies go public, bypassing the usual IPO process that can be lengthy and costly. It often involves a smaller company acquiring a larger one that’s listed on the stock market, accumulating so many shares that it becomes a listed com-pany, too. It isn’t such an obscure practice, either. Companies such as Occidental Petroleum, Turner Broadcasting, Texas Instruments and Jamba Juice all became public companies through reverse mergers. There’s a sometimes problematic side to it, too, such as when some foreign companies that wouldn’t otherwise qualify to be listed on American exchanges execute reverse mergers with publicly traded U.S.-based shell compa-nies. Regulators are cracking down on that.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in — see Write to Us =ffcjJZ_ffc Don’t Thwart Your RetirementWhen financial times get tough, some people make regrettable decisions — such as taking early withdrawals from 401(k) accounts. The number of Americans doing so hit a record in 2010, and in 2011 the IRS collected about $5.7 billion in penalties on roughly $57 billion withdrawn early. Early withdrawals can do more long-term harm than short-term good. The longer you leave your money alone to grow, the more powerful your compounded growth becomes. Check out what time, patience and an average 10 percent return can do to a steady series of $10,000 annual invest-ments: After 10 years, you have $175,000. After 20 years, $630,000. After 30 years, $1.8 million. You don’t even need to be a genius to score those kinds of returns. Inex-pensive broad-market index funds, such as those based on the S&P 500, have averaged 10 percent annually over the long haul. (They’ll likely return more or less over your particu-lar investing time frame.) 2014 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST. BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK 8/7 Want some inspiration?

AFFORDABLE MEALSContinued From 1C Associated Press TALLAHASSEE — Florida econo mists are projecting the state's econ omy will continue to remain in good shape over the next few years. State economists on Thursday drew up new forecasts that show that the state's economy continues to recover after the Great Recession. Economists estimate the state's main budget account will grow 3.8 percent during the fiscal year that started in July. Economists are also projecting a 3.9 percent increase in the fiscal year that starts in July 2015. That's a slight dip from previous forecasts in March. One main rea son is that there has been a drop in corporate income taxes. But Amy Baker, the head of the state's Office of Economic and Demographic Research, said it's because businesses are spending more and does not show any weak ness in the economy.

But experts say they don't expect other companies con sidering the move to follow Walgreen's lead and stay rooted in the United States. Walgreen’s, the nation's biggest drugstore chain, said Wednesday that it would no lon ger consider a so-called inver sion, which has become popu lar among large, multi-national health care companies looking to cut U.S. taxes. The company said it will instead combine with the Swiss health and beauty retailer Alliance Boots to form a holding company that's based in the U.S. Walgreen’s Co. said in a statement that it was "mindful of the ongoing public reaction to a potential inversion" and its "unique role as an iconic American" retailer. Walgreen’s decision follows a wave of recently announced inversions that have prompted President Barack Obama and members of Congress to voice growing concern about tax rev enue the U.S. government could lose from these moves. Despite Walgreen's decision, experts say U.S. companies will likely contin ue to pursue inversions because they can still reap big benefits by reorganizing overseas. "We need fundamental cor porate tax reform to solve this problem, and it isn't going to happen in an election year," said Donald Goldman, an Arizona State University professor. Walgreen’s turns down inversion to cut tax billForecasters expect slower Atlantic storm seasonFederal forecasters say the Atlantic hurricane season will be even quieter than predicted, thanks to atmospheric and oceanic conditions suppressing storm formation. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration still expects three to six hurricanes to form during the six-month season that peaks between mid-August and mid-October. Officials dropped the number of named storms to between seven and 12 in an updated hurricane season forecast issued Thursday.Florida consumer spending higher than pre-recessionThree years after the Great Recession officially ended, consumer spending by Floridians had surpassed the pre-recession high, but Florida lagged slightly behind the rest of the nation in spending growth. State-level figures released Thursday by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis show that per capita consumer spending in 2012 grew 3.1 percent over the previous year in Florida.National Park near Miami may ban fish harvestsCommercial fishing in national parks has spawned a new debate, as fed eral officials seek to ban the practice in Biscayne National Park offshore from suburban Miami. Park Superintendent Brian Carlstrom says the maritime park, which is 95 percent underwater, has been overfished for a long time. Officials say cutting off commercial fishing will help improve the numbers and sizes of fish swimming through the park. Three things to know in Fla.Q Associated Press

The resource center will add to social services provided by schools, area churches and the Fort White Branch Library by providing a place where representatives of agencies that do not already have a presence in Fort White can hold regular office hours. Eighteen agencies and organizations serving the needs of children and families were represented at the grand opening. Many provided refreshments, and there was also a giveaway of backpacks and school supplies to area children. Cars parked bumper to bumper along all the roads near the new center were mute testimony to the community's interest in and need for a wide range of social services. The Fort White Resource Center is the result of a partnership between Partnership for Strong Families and the Columbia County Health Department, says Steve Pennypacker, president and CEO of PFSF. The reason we are so interested in getting these services into Fort White is that relieving stress on families by getting them needed help lowers the rates of child abuse. As the contract agency for providing interventions to children and families following Department of Children and Family Services investigations, we know how important preventing abuse is. And we've seen this concept work before. We have three full time centers in Gainesville, and each of the neighborhoods served by those centers has seen a drop in the number of children having to be removed from their homes due to abuse. Mona Gil de Gibaja of PFSF has handled much of the coordination between PFSF and the Health Department. We actually started exploring this about a year ago, she says. The CCHD had underutilized space at the clinic and was very interested in making more resources available to the clinic as well as getting the word out about services they provide. It took about eight months to set up a Memorandum of Agreement between our organizations; since then, we've been moving full steam ahead. Patricia Carroll has been our community relations person and has done a terrific job bringing everything together.Resource Centerup and running Photos by AVALYN HUNTER/Special to the ReporterColumbia County Health Department senior communications representative Patricia Carroll (from left), board member Ed Peddie, and Partnership for Strong Families president and CEO Steve Pennypacker pose for a picture at the new resource center grand opening.

The Kennedys arent strangers to any of us and our curiosity was piqued. So I Googled Kennedy Compound and, of course, Wikipedia had it listed with an address. I plugged it into my GPS and off we went. Along the way from the ferry docks in Hyannis, the areas were very nice with lots of water views. It took so many turns in a residential area that I began to think the GPS was off and we werent going to find it. But I kept going. As we were approaching the actual street, I heard a horn and looked TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonVisiting the Kennedy Compound TRAVEL continued on 4D

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 24-year-old plus-sized woman (60 or 70 pounds overweight), but very comfortable in my own skin. When swimming in public, I wear a one-piece bathing suit because it doesn’t attract a lot of attention. When I’m home, I have a bikini top and shorts I prefer to wear. This is because I don’t like being cov ered up like it was in the 1950s, and I feel good when my curves are properly accentuated. When I go back to see my family and swim, I wear a bikini top and black shorts. Recently, my mother said, “When the family comes over, you can’t wear that. It makes people uncomfortable.” I was shocked, and we had a huge argument. Most of my cousins are fine with my attire, as are my aunts. Only Mom has a problem with it. I asked if she’d feel the same about a large man swimming without a T-shirt. She said it’s different for women. Am I wrong for want ing to be comfortable in my childhood home? Mom should be proud to have a daughter who accepts herself as she is. Who is wrong here? — OFFENDED DAUGHTER DEAR OFFENDED DAUGHTER: You are not wrong for wanting to be comfortable. But please remember that when you visit someone else’s home, that per son’s wishes take prece dence -even if it used to be your childhood home. While you say you are comfortable in your own skin, it would be interesting to know what your physician thinks about your obesity. I suspect that your mother would be prouder of you if you were less complacent and more willing to do something about your weight problem. DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of three beautiful daughters. I have been married for 11 years now. I married at 19, just after high school. My husband is 18 years older. The first five years of marriage, when I fully depended on him, he was arrogant, vio lent and unfaithful. He hurt me so badly that I vowed to work hard and when I was inde pendent, I would move away. Now I have a stable job -but my kids love him, and I know they will be hurt. My husband is jobless now. He tells me he sup ported me when I was jobless, so it’s my turn to take care of him. I stay because I feel guilty. Should I finally forgive him, and if so, how? — BITTER IN NAIROBI DEAR BITTER: If you truly want to forgive your husband for the physical and emotional abuse you suffered in the early years of your marriage, a place to start would be to talk with your spiritual adviser. You didn’t mention whether your hus band is trying to find another job, if there is a valid reason why he can’t work, or if he’s still unfaithful. If it’s the latter, then in my opinion, you “owe” him the same amount of financial support that he gave you and nothing more. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep your conversations light. Build up the people around you. What you do to put others at ease will bring you greater opportunities in the future. Network and socialize and a prosperous offer will come your way. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your emotions in check. Don’t allow stubbornness to take over, leading you down a dark path.

Getting to meet people from different backgrounds will open your mind to new ideas that can help you advance in the future. A social event will stimulate your personal life. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Personal problems will arise if you let emotional issues fester. Make whatever changes are necessary to avoid discord at home or at work. Taking on too much will make you look bad. Stay within your means physical ly and financially. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Give and take will be necessary if you want to get things done. Expect to face opposition that could result in a financial set back. Focus on what you can do to keep the peace, not how to get your way. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participate in community events or get together with people you have worked with in the past. Joining forces with others who share your concerns will make a difference. An entertaining eve ning will bring about a chance meeting and a personal change. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take care of personal mat ters that will improve your atti tude, appearance or expertise.

Taking part in an event that is different from anything you’ve ever done will be eye-opening. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t hold back when deal ing with relationships, feelings and what your plans are for the future. Sharing is part of getting to know where you stand and what direction you are head ed. Someone from your past will play a role in your future. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The changes you make now will have long-term effects.

H as your child every told you that he just need ed his own space? “Just give me some room!” “You’re crowding me!” He was probably refer ring to the need of some down time, or some time alone as life gets a little hectic. Plants need their own space, too. A plant can get more radical, however, and some even resort to chemical war fare to secure their own space. Allelopathy refers to the chemical processes that some plants use to affect the growth and development of sur rounding plants. By keeping other plants from growing in its space, the offending plant has the use of more sunlight, nutrients and water. The term allelopathy was derived from the Greek words ‘allelo’ and ‘pathy’ and is roughly translated to mean mutual harm or suffering. Even in the early 1800’s, bota nists were busy forming hypotheses about soil sickness caused by chem icals released from plants. There are several types of this chemical warfare used by plants. One type involves the release of chemicals from roots into surrounding soil. Other plants that are trying to grow in the soil will absorb the chemical and are unable to survive. Some plants release substances that will form gases in the area. Certain plant parts, such as fall en leaves or seeds, may contain allelopathic chem icals that are leached into the soil during the decaying process. The chemicals work in many different ways, depending on the plants involved. But the bottom line is that some plants are able to cut down on the com petition by weakening or killing off intruders. Black walnut is a tree well known for its ability to eliminate the competi tion. All parts of the tree contain the compound juglone which inhibits the growth of most other plants. The family of plants which includes tomatoes, peppers and eggplants are especially susceptible to juglone and they won’t survive in a nearby garden. The area directly below the tree canopy is the worst, however, because of the concentration of decayed walnuts and leaves. Sorghum, chick peas, English peas, fragrant sumac, red rice, tobacco and sunflowers are other common plants that may affect the health of near by landscape or garden plants. Researchers are studying these natural allelochemicals in the hopes of developing new synthetic herbicides that are safer to use with crops. Some studies have already been done using specific plants as cover or mulch crops between production crop cycles. Some cover crops such as rye, sunflowers and sorghum have demon strated some success in suppression of certain weeds in fields. The ‘soil sickness’ described by early botanists may be a key to more sustainable food production practices in the future. up in my rearview mir ror and wondered if the person in the red truck was honking at me or if something else was going on. I panicked a little bit and just turned down the street, thinking that I had to get out of the way of the truck, if he was, in fact, honking at me. By the way, the road was marked with a Private Drive sign. The truck followed me, honking all the way. I final ly pulled over, so I could turn around and he pulled up next to me, so I rolled down my window. What happened next was just “crazy.” This man in the red truck started yelling at me to the point he was spewing. By the way, he never identified himself, just hollered at me wanting to know why I couldn’t read, that those signs meant something here, he don’t know how we do things where we come from, but if I didn’t immediately leave, he’d call the cops and have our car towed. (On a side note, our rental car coincidentally had Florida plates, so he had to know we were tourists). I told him I was lost and was just trying to turn around, he said I couldn’t do that and I need to back up out of there. He needed to move for me to do that so I asked him nicely and we were able to leave. This is the short and sweet version, but it was much nastier. He followed us for a couple of streets before we got all the way out of the area. I’m sure that happens a lot with tourists wanting to see, just like we did. However, I think there was a better way to handle it. We chalked it up to having had another funny story from the road. As it turned out the hedges are so high up around the properties along that street there wasn’t much to see any way. I could guess now which site it was since it consists of more than one house, but it’d just be a guess. It was a fun little side trip all the same, just with a little craziness added in. So, if you’re ever in Hyannis…. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 We are extremely excited and proud to announce the ad-dition of Samuel “Wes” Markham as the Newest Funeral Director to our Funeral Home Family.
