2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING THURSDAY, AUGUST 14, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Robin Williams daughter faced online abuseNEW YORK Robin Williams daughter has abandoned her online social media accounts in disgust following what she called cruel and unnecessary messages following her fathers death, a move that has prompted Twitter to explore how it handles such situations. Zelda Williams, 25, wrote that she was stepping away from her Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram accounts for a good long time, maybe forever. The move came after at least two users upset the grieving actress by sending disturbing images and verbal attacks. In one of her last tweets on Tuesday night, Williams asked fellow users to report her alleged tormentors to Twitter managers. Im shaking, she wrote. One of the images was a Photoshopped image of Robin Williams purporting to be his corpse. Well-wishers and fans online quickly rallied to Zelda Williams defense, and the accounts of both alleged bullies were suspended by Wednesday. We will not tolerate abuse of this nature on Twitter, Twitter said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. We have suspended a number of accounts related to this issue for violating our rules and we are in the process of evaluating how we can further improve our policies to better handle tragic situations like this one. 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+.

Michael Angelo, a convicted Crips gang member, testified during Bravos murder trial that Bravo confided in him about killing 18-year-old Christian Aguilar in September 2012 and disposing of the body. Bravos defense immediately called Angelos credibility into question, indicating he was testifying in exchange for a lighter sentence in his own trial and had informed in other cases. Bravo, 20, is charged with murder, kidnapping and other charges related to Aguilars death. He has pleaded not guilty. Jurors watched as Angelo, clad in red and white jail clothes, described in granular detail how he met Bravo shortly after Bravos arrest, when the two were put in the same cell. Bravo cried a lot, and stared at the ceiling for hours when they first met, Angelo said. Angelo said he read about Bravos arrest the next day in the newspaper, so knew about his case. I said You probably killed that kid, Angelo recalled, referring to Bravos weepy demeanor. He really didnt answer or say anything. Angelo said the two bonded over drawing and doing graffiti, and that they began to talk. Bravo asked him for a pen to write a suicide note to his parents, and for Angelos shoelace so he could commit suicide. Angelo said he gave him the pen, but not the shoelace. Prosecutors say Bravo wrote the letter, which was later found by a guard. In it, Bravo said he was a monster for hurting Chris the way I did, according to a copy of the letter read in court. After being isolated on suicide watch for a couple of weeks, Bravo returned to the same area of the jail and restarted communications with Angelo, prosecutors said. Angelo said Bravo slid a note under his cell door one day asking for his help to cover up the murder. I guess because before all this occurred I had some recruiting charges, gang charges. And he looked at it like I had people on the street who could do something for him, Angelo said. Bravos attorney said Angelo had offered to move Aguilars body for $2,000, an accusation denied by Angelo on the stand. In their conversations, Angelo said Bravo admitted to being angry that Aguilar was dating his ex-girlfriend. Prosecutors say Bravo was obsessed with his ex, and presented writings showing he moved to Gainesville from Miami in an effort to win her back just before Aguilars slaying.

To the Editor:In response to the Call to Meeting Op-Ed in Sundays Lake City Reporter, it would behoove the authors to base their argu-ment on fact if indeed they want to garner participation in their cause. The problem is that their argument is swimming in misin-formation. The basis of their Spirit of fairness lacking at water management district is centered on a farmers Water Use Permit (WUP) of 2.3142 million gallons per day. They take this volume and quickly and (falsely) multiply it by 365 days to present to you that the farmer will be using 845 million gallons per year. The facts are that a farmer only irrigates when absolutely neces-sary to sustain the health of a crop. In our growing conditions in North Florida, the commonly seen pivot irrigation systems operate an average of 21 days per year. Twenty-one is a much lower number than 365 in my mind. Agricultural WUPs use modeling developed by the University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences that is crop specific for the climatic condi-tions that are common to North Florida. The volume of the WUP is based on a one in ten year drought so this would be the maximum amount of water used per day for a particular extreme drought that happens on the average of one year out of every ten. Water is extremely expensive to a farmer due to the infrastruc-ture required to get the water to the plant and the energy used to pump the water from its source. As such, to use more than abso-lutely necessary is economically unsound. The future of growing the food that we all enjoy is intrinsi-cally tied to the conservations we exhibit to protect the environment around us. Farmers are by their nature conservative in all of their measures and our use of water is cautiously measured to ensure that we have the food and fiber we need while assuring that future generations have the same ben-efits afforded to them.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org That was the headline in a recent edi-tion of the Reporter, and a welcome one it was. According to data from Florida TaxWatch, tourism in Columbia County sus-tained about 2,500 private-sector jobs that paid out more than $35 million in wages last year. Throughout the Suwannee River Valley, including Suwannee and Hamilton counties, tourism sustained more than 3,300 jobs and paid more than $46 million in salaries. Were going the right direction.We just have to keep working at it.Step 1 is water.Do whatever we must to preserve our freshwater rivers, lakes and springs. Eco-tourism is a proven winner in this corner of the world. The city-county venture to convert a city sprayfield into an artificial wetland is a good move. Getting our fair share from the Florida Legislature next year will be a good follow-up. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter is fighting for us, and were grateful for that. State Sen. Charlie Dean is in there helping out as well. We were disappointed last session when a major freshwater springs package was scuttled at the last minute. We were told to be patient and that things should go better next time. We certainly hope so.Step 2 is a continued emphasis on sports tourism, which is a wise investment of anoth-er precious resource: our tax dollars. Travel league softball has proven to be a great moneymaker for area restaurants, hotels and gas stations. Stay focused on the Southside Sports Complex and we cant go wrong.Regions tourism industry growing Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITORA GOP war on poverty?TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law. In 1945, President Harry S. Truman announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally, ending World War II. In 1951, newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst, 88, died in Beverly Hills, Calif. Here they come, a charg-ing brigade, conserva-tives who just might win a fresh war on poverty and otherwise help the down and out because of compassion that hardly stands alone. It is accompa-nied by analytical soundness. But wait a minute. Did I say conservatives? You bet. The reference was not to so-called progressives too often regressive in their alle-giance to the repeatedly tried and still untrue. The reference was to such inspirited, right-of-center souls as Republican Paul Ryan, the House budget committee chairman and besieged striver for fiscal sanity who is now also a proponent of a sagacious, far-ranging plan to shrink impover-ishment. The plan was born of meticulous investigation that included time visiting neighborhoods with Robert Woodson, an outstand-ing African-American activist highly successful in rousing the poor to help themselves. His has been a rescuing practicality too often avoided by academicians, self-serving bureaucrats or vote-greedy politicians, and it shows up big time in a Ryan plan that simplifies, localizes and personal-izes. A bold plot line is to put fully funded federal assistance pro-grams in one package that state and local governments could innovatively administer. Advisors would involve themselves closely with recipients, encouraging work even as financial aid to work-ers was increased. There would be constant, cautious testing of results so the safety net would stay intact and false starts could be rectified. This nationwide sys-tem of trial and error could very well help enlarge self-reliance, lift-ing large numbers to the middle class. Welfare rolls could very well contract. Ryan aims for much else. He is, for instance, seeking educational improvements in the lower grades and more open doors in occupa-tional training and college for the disadvantaged after high school. He would revamp licensing rules inhibiting entrepreneurship. And as a matter that should win wide applause, he wants to address our prison calamity, reducing runaway incarceration rates, instituting meaningful rehabilitation and facilitating more chances for bet-ter lives after release. While some on the left got here first, Ryan is not alone among Republicans in such ambitions. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has joined with a Democrat, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, to sponsor a bill that would approach drug issues more through rehabilitation than prison while also moving to seal records of many nonviolent offenders. Republican Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has moved aggressively against mandatory sentencing and for more emphasis on drug treat-ment over incarceration, thereby lowering his states prison costs and population. What these and other office holders grasp is that our imprison-ment rates are the worlds high-est, 716 per 100,000 adding up to some 2.4 million prisoners in fed-eral, state and local facilities. The social costs are enormous, espe-cially among some widely affected low-income groups. Families are disrupted. Those with records cant get jobs. Young imprisoned law-breakers are trained to be still better criminals. Theres evidence crime could actually be kept more in tow by decreasing excessive punishment of the non-violent. Not to try is not to care. These Republicans seem to me to care, just as still others seem to care mightily about other issues related to the poor, such as Marco Rubio, the senator from Florida who in January outlined anti-poverty proposals in a num-ber of respects similar to those of Ryan. But are the majority of congressional Republicans ready to act? Thats a concern of Ron Haskins, a Brookings Institution poverty scholar who has called the Ryan plan the best, most comprehensive and poten-tially bipartisan set of ideas for promoting opportunity that has appeared in many years. His question is whether other Republicans will say thats not us and back off. In that case, this charging brigades ideas could end up defeated even if pursued legisla-tively as they should be, one step at a time with no shortage of pilot programs.

he leaves. Hall said what hell miss the most is the people his employ ees and his students. Thats what other college pres idents whove retired have told him they miss most. For Hall, just the thought of leaving makes him miss them already, he said. Really when you think about it were a people organization. We dont sell widgets or cars or tires or anything like that. We sell ser vices, and services are provided by people, and when you dont have people that you can go in and talk to and laugh with, thats kind of a loss, Hall said. Long before Hall became presi dent of FGC, he was a part of the community college system. He has spent 45 years holding differ ent jobs at various colleges, start ing with his very first job out of graduate school as a speech teach er at Central Arizona College. While doing that, Hall soon started to think about the possibil ity of becoming an administrator. I asked friends, How do you know when youre ready for administration? And they said its like being in love youll just know when its time, Hall said. Well, thats a nonanswer. But I thought it was kind of clever. And so what happens is when you get to the point where you think you have ideas and can help people or address certain issues, then youre probably ready to move into something like administra tion. So it just depends when you get that feeling where you feel like you can make a difference. For him, that moment came when Central Arizona College was founding a new department called creative arts, that would be composed of speech, drama, music, art and dance all Halls passions. The college was looking to hire a department chair, so Hall decided to apply. I thought, I would really like to do that, so I put my name in, and I got selected, and it just went piece, piece, piece after that, Hall said. It was at that same place that the dean of instruction... (he) was a really nice guy, and I really liked him, and when he left, I thought I might have to do that. And I put my name in and got selected as dean of instruction there, and thats how I moved into full-time administration. From that position, Hall moved to become president of Mohave Community College, also in Arizona, and stayed there for 13 years until coming to FGC, then Lake City Community College, in 1997. During his time at FGC, Hall has accomplished a lot for the college. He played a crucial role in the colleges name change to make it more representative of the stu dents it serves. Halls responsible for starting the colleges first bachelors pro grams. The first one, which has already launched, is a bachelor of science in nursing. A bachelor of science program for early child hood education starts this fall, and bachelors programs in industrial logistics and water resource man agement are also in the works. Among his other contributions, Hall helped plan, design and fund the Wilson S. Rivers Library and Media Center, and he and his wife sponsor the H&H Cafe in the facility. The only money Hall will receive when he retires is money from the Florida Retirement System, which all government employees receive upon retirement. He will also be able to cash in unused sick leave days. But its unknown how much money hell receive from Florida Retirement and how many days of leave hell have to cash in when he leaves in June. Now, as he prepares to retire, the community looks back on everything hes done. Columbia County Manager Dale Williams said all college presidents are engaged in the community, but Hall is one of the most engaged college presidents he has ever worked with. Hes involved himself in eco nomic development because he truly understands the importance of education in regards to eco nomic development, he said. He has elevated the academics of the college. Hes responsible for the alliance between the college and Saint Leo University. I think that speaks well for a regional college. As is the case with a lot of people in academia, I dont think itll be too easy for the trustees to replace him. School Supt. Terry Huddleston said when Hall came to the college, he immediately helped strengthen its relationship with the communi ty and school district. When Dr. Hall arrived at (FGC), he rejuvenated the college and immediately began building relationships with our communi ty and educators, students and administrators at the high school level in order to recruit more stu dents to (FGC), he said. Athena Randolph, chairwoman of the of the current FGC board of trustees, said Hall has made the board and his employees and students feel like theyre part of a family. Under his leadership, the col lege has grown from Lake City Community College to Florida Gateway College, yet his compas sion for the students and commu nities that are served has allowed the college to remain a commu nity where all can gain the tools they need to obtain a higher edu cation and strong foundation, she said in a prepared statement. Jack Berry, executive direc tor of the Lake Shore Hospital Authority, said Hall brought the college up to date. The students have a lot more opportunities to expand in fields. Theyve got the four-year degree programs now, he said. He (Hall) has just expanded the edu cational opportunities for people in this area. Hall will miss the school just as much as the people there will miss him. Still, hes excited to get to travel and spend more time with his family. They have a six-month old granddaughter theyve only seen once, so theyre looking forward to visiting her. Their young est child is starting college at Georgetown University, so they plan to also visit him in D.C. But aside from spending more time with their family, theyre hop ing to travel to Europe and other parts of the world. It would be fun to go spend some time in Paris, you know all these dream places you read about, Hall said. But ultimately, itll be nice for him to know that when hes on vacation, hell actually be on vacation. When youre a college presi dent, vacation doesnt mean that youre off duty. It just means that youre out of the office. Were always available by phone, email, so itd be nice just to be complete ly free from time to time, he said. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 14, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 school supplies. The event will take place from 9 a.m. 2 p.m. If youve gotten a backpack at the event in previous years, you wont be able to get another one this year because the backpacks have a lifetime warranty. There will be business cards at the event with information on how to get a free replacement back pack with the lifetime warranty if yours is damaged or broken. But even if you received a backpack in years past or you arent one of the first 300 in line, you can still get school supplies. And there will be a lot of school supplies. Christ Centrals office manag er and facilities director Leilani Dagley said there are enough school supplies for about 1,000 students. Kindergarteners through sixth graders will get a certain set of school supplies, and sev enth-grade through 12th-grade students will get another set of supplies. Were just trying to give the kids that really need help a heads up for the first day, Dagley said. There are many children in this area who dont even have the proper clothes for school, she said. It just breaks my heart, Dagley said. But Operation Backpack helps many of those students. And not just with school sup plies. In addition to free backpacks and school supplies, there will be free haircuts, phsyicals, vision exams and immuniza tions. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office will also be there offering school-related finger printing. The school district will be at the event providing students with bus stop information for the coming school year, and a pharmacist from North Florida Pharmacy will be giving stu dents vitamin cards that they can use to get free vitamins on a monthly basis. On the way out of the event, everyone will get a free hot dog meal. BACKPACKContinued From 1A FILE PHOTOSColumbia County Sheriffs Office will be at Christ Centrals Oper ation Backpack Saturday to perform school-related finger printing to each child who attends. A free haircut is included in Saturdays festivities if desired. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterFlorida Gateway College president Dr. Charles Hall is seen in fron t of the administration building on Wednesday. Hall announced his reti rement Wednesday morning. RETIREMENTContinued From 1Ainches tall and weighs about 87 pounds. He is autistic and non-com municative. Live Oak Police Department Det. Scott Gambel said law enforce ment was notified about 4:25 a.m. Wednesday of the childs disappear-ance. We dont have anything to sus pect foul play at this time, other than he just wondered off from the house, Gambel said during a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon. Gambel said Walker is normally at the home but authorities believe he may have climbed out of a win dow and left the residence. We have FDLE on the scene right now processing the home, he said. Weve searched all over. Weve had a few tips on possible sightings and had several dog teams out this morning and all day. Right now were going back to Square 1. Resources from the FDLE, FBI, Live Oak Police Department, Suwannee County Sheriffs Office and Columbia County Sheriffs office are involved in the search. Gambel said assets from several different agencies are aiding in the search with coordinated efforts to start tracking and conduct a grid search and search every square inch of the area to find the child. The Columbia County Dive Team was also taking part in the search by searching retention ponds in the area. We have no idea where the child is heading, Gambel said. Walker was last seen wearing light blue shorts with darker pin stripes. He may have been wearing a light blue shirt. Gambel said Walker has gone missing before, but was recovered just a few blocks from the home. Anyone with information about Walker is asked to call the Suwannee County Sheriffs Office at (386) 362-2222, the Live Oak Police Dept. at (386) 362-7463 or the emergency operation center at (386) 330-3501. MISSINGContinued From 1A attempted robbery of Elijah D. Dunning. The four man, two woman jury deliberated for about two hours and thirty min utes before returning with the guilty verdicts. About 90 minutes into their deliberations, the jurors sent a note to Third Circuit Judge Leandra Johnson requesting a simple explanation of the differences between felony murder and manslaughter. After getting a response, the jurors returned with the ver dicts less than an hour later. Merritt, who was wear ing a white shirt, light blue striped tie and black trou sers, lightly tapped the table with his fingers as the jurors entered the courtroom. He then stood stoically as the verdicts were read. After his attorney Baya Harrison polled the jury, Harrison whispered to Merritt. Sentencing in the case was deferred because the victims family wanted to address the court and they were out of town Wednesday. Sentencing is scheduled to take place 1:30 p.m. today in Courtroom 2. After being fingerprint ed, Merritt gave a two-finger peace sign to his friends and family in the courtroom gal lery as he was escorted from the courtroom by a bailiff. The state had two wit nesses testify Wednesday, the medical examiner and a Florida Department of Law Enforcement crime lab spe cialist. The defense did not call any witnesses and Merritt opted not to testify on his behalf. John Weed, assistant state attorney with the special prosecution unit, prosecuted the case along with assistant state attorney John Durrett. During closing state ments Weed said the tes timony from the witnesses placed Merritt at the scene and that he was a shooter. He said testimony from Merritts cellmate, Elias Reyes, indicated Merritt was trying to put a con tract out on co-defendant Deion-Tay Jones and author ities found tools in their cell where Merritt was planning an escape because he was worried about the trial. Every piece fits togeth er with every other piece, Weed said. All together they make a strong case against the defendant. The evidence clearly shows he was there that night. Harrison, on the other hand, challenged the testimo ny of several of the states wit nesses, including Dunning. He noted that several of the witnesses for the state were convicted felons, serving time and with their testimony they would get reduced sentences. I submit to you they did not tell the truth, he said. No citizens freedom should be lost based on their testimony. Merritt is also under indictment for the March 9, 2013, shooting death of Misty Dawn Harper. TRIALContinued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterMerritts attorney Baya Harrison is seen in court on Wednesday.

In a joint effort to eradicate hunger in North Florida, two businesses are working to enhance the communities in which they operate by improving access to healthy food for local children, families and residents. The Plum Creek Foundation recently partnered with CoBank to fund the pouring of a concrete slab for a new freezer at the Florida Gateway Food Bank, a nonprofit operated by the Catholic Charities Bureau with 33 partner agencies serving Suwannee, Hamilton, Union and Columbia counties. Plum Creek and CoBank provided $5,000 grants for a total gift of $10,000 to support the purchase. We need the resources to fight and end hunger, said Suzanne Edwards, regional director of Catholic Charities Lake City. Relationships with companies like Plum Creek and CoBank provide those resources and are absolutely vital to feeding our communities. No one should go to bed hungry. We are grateful that these organizations have joined us in ending hunger and putting compassion into action.Fresh produce from local farmsThrough Farmers Feeding Florida, a food recovery program established by the Florida Association of Food Banks, the Florida Gateway Food Bank is one of many organizations across the state slated to receive surplus locally grown fruits and vegetables from farmers and packers who choose to donate their produce. When first struck, this partnership between farms and food banks meant positive strides for healthy eating options for Floridas disadvantaged, but a lack of storage for perishable fresh produce presented a problem for the Florida Gateway Food Bank. The grant from Plum Creek Foundation and CoBank presents the solution. The new freezer, which also functions as a cooler, is designed to store large quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables. At 20 feet by 20 feet, the freezer is capable of storing pallets of produce, which are accessible via forklift. Freezer installation and construction begins in September. Plum Creek and CoBanks grants fund the concrete pad on which the freezer is built.Building a stronger, healthier communityWe want to establish a healthier, stronger community. When community need is met by desired funding from community businesses, we grow stronger together, said Allison Megrath, a manager of real estate for Plum Creek. The infrastructure these grants provide supports the continued food security and nutrition of the North Florida region. We could not be more proud to support the food bank in cooperation with CoBank. Mirroring Plum Creeks initial grant, CoBanks $5,000 contribution is part of the banks Sharing Success grant matching program, which is designed to support positive local initiatives across the nation. This latest partnership with the Plum Creek Foundation furthers both companies stake in rural, agricultural communities. Partnering with customers like Plum Creek to support worthy causes they care about is a great way for CoBank to make a positive difference and fulfill its mission of service to rural America, said Michael Tousignant, sector vice president for CoBank. The Plum Creek Foundation supports nonprofit organizations and community projects that improve the overall quality of life in the communities where Plum Creek operates. The Foundation board meets quarterly to review submitted grant applications.

COURTESYPlum Creek Foundation and the CoBank Sharing Success program provided the foundation for the $99,000 in 99 days challenge put on by Catholic Charities to benefit the Florida Gateway Food Bank and its Eat Fresh Food programs by donated $10,000 Saturday. The money will be put toward buying a 32 X 32 cooler and an adjoining 16 X 16 freezer to store fresh fruits and vegetables for the food bank.

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. Volunteers are needed to organize cleanups during a three-month window from September through November along the Suwannee River and its tributaries.

The defense held opponents to an average of 20 points per game, which Fort Whites explosive offense usually over-came easily. The defense forced 23 turn-overs 14 interceptions and nine fumble recoveries and chipped in with three touchdowns. The defense also was cred-ited with two safeties. Jon Mattson returns as nose guard in the three-man defensive front. Christian Helsel is back on the line and they will be joined by Lowell Reed. Justin Young and Brandon Davis also work on the defensive line. Mattson can also play inside linebacker and on the offensive line. Helsel is the starting tight end and Reed can play guard on offense. Our defensive unit can rotate and we dont have to use so many offensive line-men like in the past, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. We have got a little depth on both sides and they are all interchangeable. Cameron White is back for his fourth year as starter at outside linebacker. White also will start at running back, so Jabari Rivers is getting a lot of reps at linebacker. C.J. McCoy and Joe Bailey were in a battle for the other outside linebacker, and McCoy also can play inside. Blair Chapman returns as inside linebacker for his fourth season and will be joined by senior Jared Wainwright. Jared played as a freshman, but tore his ACL twice and missed two years, Jackson said. He has good instincts. In the secondary, the Indians have Shannon Showers and Ledarius Mims as the cornerbacks. Tyler Reed, Elijah Bryant and Justin Asuncion will rotate at the safety spots. Bryant had a pair of interceptions last year with one each from Chapman and Reed. Jackson and coach Shea Showers were defensive backs together at the University of Florida and they know a lot of tricks for the secondary. We use various coverages, from quarter coverage to cover 3, Jackson said. Depending on who we are playing and how their offense lines up, it dictates our coverage. Brandon Shrum will kick extra points and field goals for Fort White. DJ Jackson is the punter and Rivers will handle the kickoffs. FILEFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston looks at the defen se before a play last season.Heisman repeat wont be easy for FSUs WinstonBy KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has the opportunity to accomplish what only one other player has achieved win the Heisman Trophy twice. Twenty-three underclassmen have won the award, but Ohio State running back Archie Griffin was the only one to pull off the feat. He is shocked that he remains the lone double winner since the awards inception in 1935. Until recently, the majority of win-ners were seniors or juniors that could turn pro. But five of the last seven winners have been sophomores or redshirt freshmen. Griffin, the Heisman trophy winner in 1974 and 1975, believes it is more difficult to win the award in back-to-back years than it was 40 years ago. For him, the off-the-field distractions were more stressful than any defense. Ill never forget that I was trying to do everything for everybody and (coach) Woody (Hayes) called me into his office, Griffin said. He told me, You know what? Its going to make you soft. You cant do every-thing for everybody. But unlike Griffin, who admitted it was a goal, Winston said he hasnt even thought about a sec-ond Heisman. Winston said he is more concerned with a second national champi-onship. Im going to be great, even better than I was last year, Winston said. Im going to continue to be myself. Coach Jimbo Fisher said he and Winston have talked about the award, but not about winning another. I do (talk to him) from the point of the responsibil-ity that goes with it with your character and the things you do, Fisher said. Not about winning another one. If he just goes and plays well, that will take care of itself. He never thought about winning a Heisman going into last year. You cant worry about that. There will be plenty who will. The demands and expectations are higher than when Griffin made histo-ry. Winston is the leading candidate heading into the season with the defend-ing national champion Seminoles likely beginning Quarterback tries to become 2nd two-time winner. WINSTON continued on 3B

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman winner, said that was the most dif-ficult part for him in 2013. There is a lot of pressure, Manziel said. Youre the one thats on TV every week. Youre the one who at the beginning of the year is already at the top of everybodys Heisman list. ... Its everywhere because its the biggest trophy in college football. For me, I never really let it get to me too much, but at the same time, it was always around and it was always lingering no matter what went on throughout the season. The Seminoles and Winston have tried to man-age his off-the-field com-mitments. Winston made few public appearances dur-ing the offseason. He was the closer on the base-ball team, finishing with a team-best 1.08 ERA, and accepted a handful of foot-ball awards. Winston was honored in his hometown of Bessemer, Alabama, and his Hueytown High School jersey was retired. There was also a trip to the ESPYs. The Florida State signalcaller said he has learned to be more guarded, but still loves having all eyes on me. Griffin said that isnt necessarily a good thing. Theyre in a fishbowl, Griffin said of Heisman contenders. I mean, any-thing they do, Johnny, every move he made it was talked about. Jameis, same thing. Theyve got to be extremely careful how they handle themselves because whatever they do, people are going to know about it. Winston is no stranger to unwanted attention. He was suspended for three baseball games and completed 20 hours of community service after admitting he stole $32 worth of crab legs from a local grocery store in April. He faced criticism nationwide and was the subject of taunts and jokes in print, online and on social media. Winston was able to handle what Fisher described as distractions during the national championship run. Winston was inves-tigated for an alleged sexual assault, but wasnt charged by the attorney general. The QB will also have a few on-field challenges. The Seminoles lost two of their top three receivers and their top two running backs to the NFL. Those four accounted for 52.6 percent of the offense and 44 touchdowns. Nonetheless, because of Winston, the Seminoles will be one of the teams to beat. Despite his talent, Winston has continued to downplay questions about the NFL. He insists that playing college baseball remains a priority. It would be a challenge to prepare for the 2015 NFL draft while playing for Florida States baseball team. Once Winston does get to the NFL, former Seminoles quarterback and current Buffalo Bills starter EJ Manuel said his anticipation on his throws will be his most valuable trait in the league. You cant take away some of the throws hes making out there, Manuel said. They were tremen-dous. Thats why he earned the Heisman. I think, moving forward, his anticipation skills, obvi-ously, is a sign of intel-ligence. So thats going to help him build toward his last couple years at Florida State and then move on to the NFL. There was an atmosphere of curiosity around Winston last season after being the No. 1 high school quarterback in the nation. The hype is different now because of his dominance on the field and the criti-cism away from it. I dont have time to focus on bad things, Winston said. Im always looking forward, keeping a smile on my face and focusing on good things. WINSTON: Must deal with pressure Continued From Page 1B Heisman contenders not named JameisBy JOHN MARSHALLAssociated PressThe preseason frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy last season was easy. Texas A&M quar-terback Johnny Manziel won it as a freshman the year before, so there was little reason to pick against him. No different this year. Florida States Jameis Winston won it as a fresh-man last season while lead-ing the Seminoles to the national title, so, again, no sense in looking else-where. But Winston is far from a lock. Manziel couldnt come through with another Heisman last season and there has only been one repeat winner Archie Griffin in 1974 and 1975 in the 78-year history of college footballs most prestigious award. With that in mind, we are going to run down six other players who should have a chance at taking home the Heisman:Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon. The Ducks leader was a strong Heisman contender last season before being derailed by a knee injury. He still set a school record with 4,380 yards of total offense and accounted for 40 TDs, though he was disappointed when Oregon fell out of national-title con-tention. After bypassing a shot at the NFL, the junior returns to lead an offense that piles up points and yards like a video game. If he stays healthy, Mariota is one of the nations best dual-threat quarterbacks and could find himself hold-ing that bronze trophy.Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State. The Buckeyes are taking it slow with Miller after offseason shoulder sur-gery, but he is expected to be ready for the opener against Navy on Aug. 30. Despite missing nearly three full games with a sprained knee last season, he passed for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns, and ran for 1,068 yards and 12 scores. The Big Tens two-time MVP, he bypassed a shot at the NFL to return to Columbus for his senior season and is motivated to make it a big one.Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor. The Bears set an NCAA record with 52.4 points per game last season, and Petty was the conductor, setting 17 school records while leading Baylor to its first Big 12 title and only BCS bowl. The senior was the Big 12 offensive player of the year after passing for 4,200 yards and 32 TDs with just three inter-ceptions and running for 14 more scores. Expect more big numbers from the Bears and Petty.Myles Jack, LB, UCLA. UCLA teammate Brett Hundley might have a bet-ter shot at winning the Heisman, but we wanted to get a defensive player in the mix. Jack made a big splash as a freshman last season by becoming a where-did-he-come-from two-way player, rushing for 120 yards in his first game, scoring four TDs the next. But Jacks NFL future is as a linebacker, and the Bruins have limited him to that side of the ball in fall camp. He might see some time at running back again this season, but he is going to have an impact on D regardless.Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia. Gurley missed three games last season with an ankle injury and wasnt right when he came back as the Bulldogs limped to an 8-5 finish. Fully healthy again, this bulldog of a Bulldog 6-foot-1, 226 pounds has his eyes set on a 2,000-yard season and possibly a spot in New York. Even with his injury a year ago, the junior has rushed for 2,374 yards and 27 touchdowns in two sea-sons, so 2K isnt complete-ly out of the question.Nick Marshall, QB, Auburn. Marshalls chances might be hurt by starting the season opener on the bench. The senior was cited for marijuana posses-sion last month and coach Gus Malzahn said he wont start against Arkansas on Aug. 30. He still might play in that game and is expected to have another big season after passing for 1,976 yards, running for 1,068 and accounting for 26 touchdowns while leading the Tigers to the final BCS national champi-onship game last year. UCF case to be reviewedBy KYLE HIGHTOWERAssociated PressORLANDO The Florida Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal of the reduction of the mon-etary award in the wrong-ful death lawsuit filed by the family of a University of Central Florida football player who died following conditioning drills in 2008. The court issued an order on Wednesday accepting jurisdiction in the case. It will not be hearing oral arguments, but will review the case record and legal briefs from attorneys. In August 2013, a threejudge appeals court panel reduced a jurys $10 mil-lion civil trial damage judg-ment awarded to Ereck Planchers parents in 2011 to $200,000. The court ruled UCFs power of control over its ath-letics association was suffi-cient for sovereign immuni-ty afforded to state agencies in civil judgments.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: Im not much of a drinker. I have nothing against drinking or those who do. I just do not like the taste of alco hol. Worse, I have a very low tolerance for it. After only half a glass of wine, I become so sleepy I can barely keep my eyes open. It makes me feel physically awful. My husband takes offense to the fact that I dont want to drink. When were out with friends, hell have three or four beers and pressure me to the point of embarrassment in front of them until I finally give in and order a glass of wine. Of course, I then spend the rest of the eve ning feeling terrible. When we get home, hell want to be intimate, but I just want to go to sleep, which aggravates him further. I have tried for several years to discuss this with him, but he cant explain why he does this. What can I do? JUST WATER, PLEASE DEAR JUST WATER: Your husband is a drinker. He may be self-conscious about the amount he imbibes and feels less so if he has a drinking buddy (thats you), willing or not. To say the least, his behav ior is inconsiderate -and I mean ALL of it. When someone is involved with a problem drinker, and from your description of his behavior your husband is one, the place to start looking for answers is Al-Anon. To find a meeting close to you, go online to al-anon.org. Please dont wait. DEAR ABBY: My best friend, Cecily, has just come out to me as being a lesbian. We are both 15. I have tried my best to make her feel accepted and com fortable. But whenever she wants something from me and I refuse, she says Im treating her badly because shes gay. I let it go the first couple of times, but now she does this every time she wants something. When I finally confronted her about it, she went to her mother and said I was bullying her because of her being gay. Her mother yelled at me and told me to get my act together or get out of her life. Her mother is like a second mother to me. Other than this, Cecily has been a great friend. This has gotten way out of hand. Abby, I have tried everything. What do I do? WAY OUT OF HAND IN NEW YORK DEAR WAY OUT OF HAND: Cecily may react this way because shes newly out and hypersensi tive to being discriminated against for being gay. (For too many gay teens, this is a sad reality.) Consider asking your mother to talk to Cecilys mother and explain that youre not homophobic but feel her daughter is being manipulative. If the woman hears it from another adult, she may talk to her daugh ter about it. However, if that doesnt work, you may have to decide if its worth it to continue the relationship under these circumstances. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Good for tune will smile on you if you are willing to contrib ute. You can make positive personal changes and invest in something you want to do and succeed. Now is the time to speak up and share the changes you want to make with someone special. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stay in the background. You will achieve far more if you are disciplined, hardworking and dont get into debates with people who are bound to disagree with you. Dont settle for less when you can have so much more. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do whatev er it takes to accomplish your goals. Research, testing and talking to those who can help you expand your knowledge and inter ests should be on your agenda. An investment at home will pay off and bring you greater personal stability. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Youll be surprised by the turn of events that takes place. Take a backseat and be the observer until you know exactly what move to make. Dont be fooled by dirty tricks or emotion al blackmail. Arguments must be avoided. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can learn some thing new if you engage in a course, activity or event that deals with new tech nology, concepts or ideas. Share your findings, but dont be disappointed if someone close to you isnt as excited about your dis covery. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can take care of legal, financial or medical issues with ease as long as you dont let uncertain ty mess with your mind. Dont second-guess your self about what you should do next. Hesitation will lead to mistakes. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be a leader and a peacemaker. Suggest alternatives and mediate between those who cannot get along. You can build a stellar reputation and vie for a position of authority that will increase your stan dard of living and result in unique partnerships. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Watch whats going on around you. Take care of domestic duties and make a point to bring comfort and cre ativity into your personal life. Nurture your relation ships, but dont let posses siveness or jealousy lead to dictatorship. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Invest in your best attributes and dont be afraid to make personal or financial moves that will set you up for a better time and a more lux urious future. Love is on the rise and romance will improve your personal life. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Impulsive actions will work against you. Bide your time and ease into whatever you decide to do. Sometimes its best to be an observer rather than a participant. Lean toward the more obscure options that will attract less competition. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Assess your situation and move for ward. You will see past any of the personal situations that have clouded your vision in the past. Love, commitment and taking things to the next level will lead to greater satisfac tion. Love is highlighted. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Sort through your important papers and look for an investment that will secure your financial future. Revisit contracts, medical issues or legal settle ments that have yet to be resolved. Show enthusiasm and you will gain momen tum and find success. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Drinking becomes a problem for wife pressured to imbibe Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
