Its not yet confirmed if its the body of missing Leo Walker, Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams wrote on his Facebook page. The preliminary autopsy results indicate that the cause of death for the juvenile that was found was accidental drowning, Williams wrote on his Facebook page. The positive identification still has not been made, awaiting DNA results. At this time, there is NO FOUL PLAY indicated. Leo, who is autistic and non-communicative, was last seen at his familys home Wednesday morning around 2 a.m. His mother noticed he was missing at about 4 a.m. and immediately called 9-1-1, Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokesperson Samantha Andrews told the Lake City Reporter Thursday. The Live Oak Police Department immediately responded to the call, and since then, more than 12 different law enforcement agencies have taken part in the search for Leo. Authorities believe he may have climbed out of the window of his house. Andrews told the Reporter on Thursday that authorities started draining a lake in Live Oak near Lee and Duval streets late Thursday afternoon as a precaution. At that time, she said there was no indication that Leo was in that lake. However, Andrews said Saturday that was not where the body was located. On Friday Williams would not say whether the body was found in a lake, retention pond or stream. Drowning is cause of death; no ID yet.

Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne said thats a good turnout and is about what she expected based on early voting numbers from the 2010 primary election. Its been a great first day, she said. Two people also cast provisional ballots on Saturday. There were people lined up outside of the Supervisor of Elections Office at 8 a.m. when staff arrived there, and there was a steady flow of people throughout the day, Horne said. Supporters of the candidates stood on the sidewalk in front of the Supervisor of Elections Office on West Duval Street, holding signs and waving to drivers as they passed by.

Early voting will continue through Saturday and will go from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. each day at both locations. Horne said she expects the number of people turning out to vote early to decrease a bit in the next few days and to then pick back up on Thursday. Overall, Horne said she expects about 29 percent of registered voters in the county to vote in the primary. In the 2010 primary, 26 percent of voters cast ballots, she said. Hornes assistant Tomi Brown said she thinks there will be a good turnout for this primary election. There are a lot local races that I believe will draw people in, she said, citing the county attorney race as one of those. Of the 425 total, 58 cast ballots at the Fort White Community Center.

LOS ANGELESJay Adams, the color ful rebel who helped transform skate boarding from a simple street pastime into one of the worlds most spectacu lar sports with hair-raising stunts and an outsized personality to match, has died at age 53. Adams died of a heart attack Thursday during a surfing vacation in Mexico with his wife and friends, his manager, Susan Ferris said Friday. He was like the original viral spore that created skateboarding, fellow skateboarder and documentary filmmaker Stacy Peralta told The Associated Press on Friday. He was it. But at the height of his fame in the early 1980s, Adams was convicted of felony assault, launching a string of prison stints over the next 24 years. We were wild and act ing crazy and not being very positive role models, he told The New York Times shortly after being released from prison for the last time in 2008. Adams never became quite the household name Hawk is, perhaps in part because of his repeated brushes with the law. When Dogtown and Z Boys premiered in 2001, he was in jail again, this time doing time on a drug charge. About the time the 2005 feature film Lords of Dogtown would hit theaters, Adams, who was played by actor Emile Hirsch, was being busted for drugs again. Upon his release, he vowed to stay out of trou ble and he did. Peralta said he last saw Adams at a dinner gather ing about six weeks ago. He was the first person to show up at the dinner table, which was remark able, and he was drink ing hot tea, which was even more remarkable, he said. He had really turned a corner. Adams is survived by his wife, Tracy, and two children.Publicist: Casey Kasem will be buried in Norway LOS ANGELES The wife of Casey Kasem plans to bury the late radio per sonality in Norway con trary to Kasems desire to be interred in Los Angeles and against the wishes of his adult children, a publi cist for Kasems daughter said Friday. The children were working with a private investigator but have few legal options to prevent the overseas burial, pub licist Danny Deraney told The Associated Press. Kasem, host of American Top 40, died on June 15 at a hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington. He was 82 and suffering from dementia. His death followed a lengthy battle over his care between Jean Kasem and his three adult children from his first marriage. 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 JACKSONVILLE I n Todd Blakes kitchen, a framed picture of floating rainbow hot-air balloons rests on the wall. The art brings back memories of wedding rings, a balloon ride with his new bride and the beginning of their journey into the unknown. In the stillness of the sky on their hon eymoon balloon ride, Blake and his wife, Maja, now both 23, didnt feel any wind or hear much of anything. Blake said he could still feel the pain in his lungs from the terminal cancer, but he ignored it. Enjoying the time was more important.The hospital could wait.Blake, a Jacksonville native who lives in Jacksonville Beach, was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkins lymphoma about five years ago. He graduated this month from the University of Florida, receiving a bachelors degree in business adminis tration with a 4.0 GPA, earning him the universitys highest honors. He went on national TV to share his story with The Today Show. Blake said he realized about two years ago after the chemotherapy stopped working, after his cancer appeared for the third time that the disease was going to kill him. He had two choices: Give up, or live life in fast-forward mode. He married his college sweetheart, start ed a foundation to help young adults with cancer, got a job at a real estate company and adopted a puppy. Saturdays graduation was another check off his list before he moves on to new goals: to write a book, record an album with his wife, grow his faith and be the best husband possible. He ignores the doctors estimates of time left all that matters is its small. That means Blake has to make every day count.Man sleeping at intersection leads police chase GREENACRES A man found sleep ing in his car at an intersection led police on a chase before being arrested in a Greenacres gated community. Twenty-one-year-old Joslet Jean-Charles was asleep behind the wheel at a busy intersection around 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Police received several calls about the 2003 Ford Taurus. Police pulled a patrol car in front of Jean-Charles, who awoke, put his car in reverse, drove around the police car and fled. He abandoned the vehicle at the gate of the Waterway Village development. Police did not initially find JeanCharles, but arrested him at an address found on a bill inside the car. He was charged with fleeing and allud ing, operating without a license, resist ing arrest and a probation violation. He remains in Palm Beach County Jail with a $7,000 bail.SWAT team rightly killed man during drug bust TAMPA A Tampa Police internal review has concluded that SWAT team members acted appropriately in the shooting of a Seminole Heights man in May. The review found that Cpl. Eric Wasierski and Officer Edwin Perez feared for their lives and the safety of others when they killed 29-year-old Jason Westcott on May 27. The SWAT team entered Wescotts home on a narcotics investigation look ing for large amounts of marijuana. They found 0.2 grams of marijuana, a digital scale, plastic baggies and jars with residue of the drug. The amount was worth $2. The investigation concluded that Westcott raised a 9mm pistol at police when they entered his bedroom. Wasierski and Perez immediately shot him. Wescott had no state criminal record besides traffic violations and a misdemean or marijuana possession 11 years ago.Homeowners, child survive shootout with intruder JACKSONVILLE A Jacksonville man and woman are in stable condition after a shootout with an intruder that broke into their home Friday morning. Police say the suspect, 21-year-old Trevel Yates, was killed during the assault. The pair had just woken up when they heard a loud noise of someone break ing in the back door, Sgt.

LIVE OAK Joshua Peavy, a once-big hit at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is now one of the top competitors on a national singing competition. Peavy, a Soperton, Ga. Church of God youth minister, is among six chosen last week to compete in the semi-finals on Rising Star tonight. Rising Star, a live singing competition with judges Brad Paisley, Kesha and Ludacris and host Josh Groban, airs at 9 p.m. on ABC. Prepping for what he hopes is his next to the last performance on Rising Star, Peavy said theres much more involved in TV production than he ever dreamed. You may have to do 10 hours of work to get just 30 seconds of TV, he said in a phone interview this week. I know so much now that its prepared me for making decisions and given me confidence. Peavy has been performing for as long as he can remember. Mom and dad, being in the ministry, I was on stage at age 3. And the stages have only gotten bigger. In 1996 Peavy won a talent contest at Universal Studios. Then, in 2012, he entered the Texaco County Showdown (now the Country Showdown) and competed on stage at the SOSMP. Although he didnt win that competition, he clearly didnt give up. He auditioned in April for the first season of Rising Star and the rest is history. A married father of two, Peavy performs songs such as American Woman, How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, Too Close and Everything I Do. His voice has kept him in the top percentage of votes each week as fans vote via social media during his live performances. Although his family remained in Georgia throughout the two months of competition, he thanks them for being super supportive. They watch and get knots in their stomach each Sunday night, but Im just calm about it, he said. Peavy said hes also grateful for his many fans who have kept him on the show. Thank you for your support, you can feel it way out here through Twitter, Facebook, and other social media, he said. My fans have been a source of strength keep it up. But thats not where his only strength is coming from. God is still the most important thing in my life. Hes still priority, my family is still precious, and I believe His hand is in the works here, he said. Be sure to tune in tonight at 9 p.m. to watch Rising Star on ABC. Most of all, go to risingstar.com, get the app and sign up to vote and help Peavy win. Remember, you must vote during the live show, not afterwards.

The numbers indicate there were about 1,600 fewer people employed in July in Florida than a month earlier. And unlike a national report where the workforce grew by about 329,000 month to month, a .2 percent increase, the Sunshine State recorded a 16,000 decrease in the overall civilian labor force between June and July, a 0.2 percent drop. Unemployment in Columbia County jumped 0.5 percent in July from June, to 6.8 from 6.3 percent. Total employment fell to 28,655, from 28,847 in June. The workforce shrank slightly as well, to 30,740 from 30,788. In highlighting the positives of the latest state employment numbers, DEO pointed to long-term positive trends based on the economic climate over the past three years and Floridas pro-growth business policies. Gov. Rick Scott, fighting for re-election with a campaign message dependent heavily on his economic and jobs record, focused Friday on private-sector job growth. Floridas private sector created more than 2,000 jobs for Florida families in July, bringing total private-sector job creation since December 2010 to 620,300, Scott said in a prepared statement. Every new job positively impacts a family, and todays announcement is more great news for Florida families looking to live the American Dream in the Sunshine State. The focus of Scotts comment drew a rebuke from the Florida Democratic Party. Democratic Party spokesman Max Steele tweeted, Gov. Scotts email touts FL gaining 2.1k jobs in July. Only problem? FL lost ~3.7k in the same month, for net of -1.6k. The states unemployment rate, which stood at 7.3 percent a year ago, has been mostly flat this year, wavering between 6.2 percent and 6.3 percent. The same goes for the national mark which went up from 6.1 percent to 6.2 percent from June to July, with the data indicating more workers were resuming employment or at least searching for jobs. Besides state government jobs, the biggest June to July gains in Florida were found in the fields of construction, real estate, and entertainment and recreation. In the same time, manufacturing, professional management and wholesale trade showed the largest percentage drops in jobs. Across Florida, the lowest unemployment rates continue to come in parts of the Panhandle and Monroe County, which includes the Keys. Walton and Monroe counties stood at 3.9 percent unemployment, up from the 3.4 percent recorded in June for Walton County and the 3.5 percent reported in June for Monroe County. The next lowest county figures were for Okaloosa, 4.9 percent, Wakulla, 5.2 percent and St. Johns, 5.5 percent. Southwest Floridas Hendry County maintained the states highest unemployment rate, growing from 10.6 percent in June to 12.5 percent in July. The next highest were Flagler and Hamilton counties, both at 9.3 percent, and Glades County, at 9.0 percent. Lake City Reporter staff contributed to this report.Unemployment rate here jumped .5 percent in July State rate holds steady at 6.2 percent, lower than Columbia County. By BRANDON LARRABEEThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Proposed special elections in the seven congressional districts redrawn by the Legislature earlier this week would have to wait until at least spring of next year, Secretary of State Ken Detzners office said in a court filing Friday. The special elections could not take place until after the regular November vote was certified and some other post-election reports were finished --a process that will last into December, according to the filing. Accounting for all the things that would then have to be done to prepare for the special elections, Detzners brief says that the earliest possible Tuesday for a primary election would be March 17. A general election could then be held May 26. After consultation with the county supervisors of elections, who are charged with the difficult and complicated duty of planning and conducting elections, it has been determined that it is not possible to conduct a special primary election for newly drawn congressional districts between the regularly scheduled primary and general elections or on the same day as the general election, attorneys for Detzner wrote. Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis, who prompted a special legislative session by striking down two congressional districts for violating the Florida Constitutions ban on political gerrymandering, had asked Detzner and the supervisors to come up with a schedule for possible special elections to fill any seats affected by the new map. Lewis said he needed to see the Legislatures revised plan and hear from elections officials before making a final decision about delaying this years vote. While lawmakers redrew the districts during the session that ended Monday, they protested any possible delay in the regularly scheduled 2014 elections. They say tens of thousands of Florida voters, including members of the military serving overseas, have already begun returning absentee ballots in primaries scheduled for Aug. 26. Early voting is also underway in some counties. But voting-rights organizations and voters who sued to overturn the original plan for the congressional districts, which were approved in 2012, say its not fair to hold elections based on unconstitutional districts. Lewis is expected to hold a hearing Wednesday on the new map and the possibility of a special election. Meanwhile, the Legislature filed a brief Friday describing the new map to Lewis and defending it from an anticipated challenge by plaintiffs in the redistricting lawsuit. The Legislature acted promptly and in good faith not only to correct the deficiencies identified by this court but also to enact a plan that dramatically enhances both the visual and numerical compactness of the entire region, while protecting from diminishment the ability of minorities to elect their preferred candidates, lawyers for the House and Senate wrote. The attorneys specifically defended the decision not to radically overhaul the district represented by Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown, which now would cut through seven counties as it runs from Jacksonville to Orlando, down from eight counties in the original map. Some plaintiffs want the district to have an east-west orientation instead. No member --Democrat or Republican --introduced a plan (in the special session) that did not in some fashion unite minority communities in Jacksonville and Orlando, the Legislatures attorneys wrote. With strong support from both sides of the aisle, a Jacksonville-to-Orlando district does not reflect a partisan gerrymander. Voting-rights groups that challenged the districts, such as the League of Women Voters of Florida, issued a brief statement Friday and said they wouldnt comment further. We do not agree with the positions taken by the legislative defendants, the secretary of state or the supervisors of elections in their filings today, attorney Thomas Zehnder said. We will be filing our response with the court by noon on Monday.States special congressional elections to wait until Secretary of State Detzner said voting in seven redrawn districts cant happen before November.Rising Star finalist former performer at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park ERIC MCCANDLESS/ ABCJoshua Peavy who performed at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in 2012 will perform live tonight on Rising Star at 9 p.m. on ABC.

O h no! The United States is falling behind in yet anoth-er big area commercial use of drones. (Those things that buzz around and gather information and drop bombs over-seas but dont yet deliver Amazon packages.) Although drones seem to be in wide use elsewhere, the Federal Aviation Administration is nervous about letting U.S. skies fill up with them, citing safety and privacy concerns. The FAA already fined a photographer $10,000 for taking com-mercial pictures of a university by drone. It was overturned in court, but the FAA is appealing the deci-sion. Meanwhile, real estate agents are having a field day, literally, flying drones over houses to show buyers a different perspec-tive, ignoring the fact that this is against the law. The Des Moines Register found a number of real-tors who use drones they make themselves, ignoring a recommen-dation by the National Association of Realtors that drones not be used until the FAA approves them. Now, farmers want to use drones to check their crops. A company in Maryland is getting ready to sell them despite their illegality. Amazon head Jeff Bezos says he foresees the day when an Amazon order is delivered in 30 minutes by drone. Up in the sky! Its a bird. Its a plane. No, its the Divergent series from Amazon. He has teamed up with three drone manufacturers to lobby for government permission. Congress wants regulations ready by September 2015. But nobody expects that deadline to be met. Most think regulations wont be enforceable for months, if not years. The FAA, however, has suggested there could be 7,500 licensed drones in the United States by 2018 and is test-ing drones in six states. In Europe, progress is much faster. Also, the U.S. military has no qualms about bombing terrorist targets using drones, which has convinced some foreigners that all Americans are drone-crazy. But Canada, Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom are far ahead of the U.S. in commercial drone use. Last year Transport Canada, a regulatory body, issued 1,000 non-military permits for drones. The U.S. has issued one commercial air permit, in June, giving BP authority to use drones in its oil operations in Alaska for five years. While American hobbyists fly drones (not near airports or high-er than 400 feet), most Americans seem to be leery of weird uniden-tified objects buzzing over their heads. The other day my mother wanted to watch Gone with the Wind in honor of its 75th anniver-sary. She enjoyed the anticipation of waiting for her DVD to arrive two days later and had a pleasant conversation with the mail carrier who delivered it. She didnt have to scan the skies waiting for it to fall on her doorstep.

Politics is tough business, and we encourage honest, even fierce debate over policy and other public matters. Lets just not get personal about it.For instance, leave candidates families out of it unless, of course, it is a matter of immediate and pressing concern that bears directly on the contest in question. Cases like that are few and far between. Human nature being what it is, we wont be altogether shocked should the current race turn nasty in its waning days. Folks often justify their attacks by saying this or that personal quirk reveals a deeply flawed character, mak-ing Candidate X unqualified for office. Usually its just an excuse to spread mali-cious gossip. Bottom line, its the attackers own character thats on display in such instances. Candidates, dont be afraid to speak your mind on the campaign trail. We want to hear what you have to say.Just make sure you and your supporters stay focused on matters of genuine public concern. Lets keep it clean, candidates Q Associated Press Championship week in local politics TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1807, Robert Fultons North River Steamboat began heading up the Hudson River on its successful round trip between New York and Albany.

This midterm election locally is normally slower because its not the cycle that sees all the consti-tutional officers terms up for con-sideration. This year is different, as there are competitive races for city council, school board, county commission, and a county attor-neys race that is unique in Florida and hasnt been contested in more than a quarter century. It is an exciting time.Im always amazed at the motivation behind local politics. Some people immerse themselves in the vote game with the intensity of Christianity and college football combined. It is their passion. Early voting started Saturday and continues this week. The Supervisor of Elections office is open today, Sunday, if youre so inclined to go on a traditionally slow day and cast your vote possi-bly without standing in line. The start of early voting always steps up the pace of the campaign. Candidates shift from door knock-ing and neighborhood visits to wave mode. They stand on street corners in high traffic areas especially near the Supervisors office this week hold their campaign signs and wave to passing motorists. Some bring an army, but I always try to count the number of times I see the actual candidate standing in stifling heat, reaching out to the voters. How bad does the person on the ballot want it? If youre still undecided on a candidate, do your research. We published a Voters Guide on Friday that includes unedited responses from each candidate, as they answered a few questions about important issues facing their respective positions. It also includes biographical information on each candidate, as supplied by the candidate. We have a few extra copies available at the LCR office at 180 E. Duval St. downtown. Also, the final political forum is set for Tuesday night at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. The Columbia County Republican Executive Committee has done an excellent job of hosting these non-partisan rallies at locations throughout Columbia County. These rallies are free and open to anyone from any political party. They serve a chicken pilau dinner at these events, too. Candidates from each race will have the opportunity to speak to the public and talk about their goals and vision. This weeks conclusion has the makings of a title bout, as not only all local can-didates will be present to speak, but commitments are in place for several top state officials, includ-ing Attorney General Pam Bondi, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam, plus others. It is a cant-miss event.Aside from watching how all the posturing unfolds, I have great respect for anyone at any level who decides they are the best can-didate to make a difference and throws his or her hat in the ring. Candidates devote a lot of time and a lot of money to the ritual of running a campaign. If they are doing it right, they get bombarded with questions from residents from all walks. They are available on the phone, on the doorstep and in the coffee shops. The final stretch of the gold medal round of local politics is upon us. Election day is Tuesday, Aug. 26. If youre a registered voter, theres no reason to sit on the sidelines. Get involved, make your voice heard, and go vote. Commercial drones on the way!

GLENN, D.O. Board Certied Orthopaedic Surgery Fellowship Trained Joint ReplacementDr. Glenn is practicing out of The Orthopaedic Institutes Lake City Facility and operating at Lake City Medical Center Two words immediately come to mind whenever someone mentions Take Stock in Children: thank you. I am an alumna of the North Central Florida Take Stock in Children program and must say thank you to all of the staff, mentors and donors who have made this program possible within our area. Take Stock in Children is a statewide mentoring program that provides a scholarship incentive for deserving low-income, at risk students. The Foundation for Florida Gateway College is the lead agency for the North Central Florida Take Stock in Children Program which serves Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties. Two year-tuition scholarships are provided to FGC through the program. It is Take Stocks mission to give its students the necessary resources to graduate high school and then continue their education so that they may realize their potential and become productive members of the community. I loved being a Take Stock student and was fortunate to have the same mentor for all four years of high school. The relationship that I developed with my mentor meant so much to me. Take Stock gave me a friend and a confidante that I needed during a rough transitional phase of my life. It provided me with the necessary support system to progress through this phase with my head held high and a good academic track record. Receiving the Take Stock scholarship was also a welcomed contribution to my dream of graduating high school. I was at risk of being a statistic. Take Stock saw the possibilities within me and decided to invest its energies to help me realize my true potential. As a result of these efforts, I am now a graduate of Dixie County High School, Florida Gateway College and Florida State University. The relationship I developed with my mentor is something that I hold dear even now. Her devotion and love inspired me to return to Take Stock in Children as first a mentor and now an employee of the program. Its interesting to be a mentor after once being a mentee. I have several wonderful mentees who have taught me so much, and I am proud of each and every one of them. They have given me the opportunity to learn about myself and a sense of peace that I have never known before. I only hope that they enjoy meeting with me as much as I do them. The honors that I have received throughout my life are a result of the people, such as my Take Stock in Children mentor, who invested in me. Without each and every one of them I would not be where I am today. So many other students in the community need a mentor just as I did. With the start of another school year, we are looking for new mentors in the community to do just what our name says Take Stock in Children. For more information on the North Central Florida Take Stock in Children program, please call 386-754-4392 or 386-754-4475.Take Stock in Children may specialize in scholarships and mentoring, but most of all it provides hope which is the greatest gift of all.

Smith, Co lumbia County School District, Equity Officer, 372 West Duval Street, Lake City, Florida 32055, (386) 755 8015 during the previous two school years. State law says any charter school that receives two consecutive Fs will be shut down unless the school makes a successful appeal. Shining Star will appeal on its FCAT gains. Shining Star students will attend the first day of school as normal. If the school is granted a waiver, it will stay open, and the school year will proceed as normal. Assistant Superintendent Lex Carswell told the Lake City Reporter in June that if the schools appeal is successful, it will have to write up a school improvement plan, which the district will monitor closely. If Shining Star is not given a waiver of termination, Florida law states it will be the Columbia County school boards job to issue a closure order for the school. FDOE Press Secretary Cheryl Etters said the district can either issue an immediate closure or a 90-day one. Huddleston indicated the board will go with the 90-day one. However, Etters could not say if the charter school will stay open during those 90 days after that closure is issued. If the state board of education does not grant Shining Star a waiver the school will close, and its students will return to their neighborhood schools, Carswell told the Reporter in June. Supt. Terry Huddleston said on Friday that if the academy is shut down, hell call the Florida charter school office and commissioner of education for advice on how to place the schools students into other schools. However, Etters said how students are placed into other schools is up to the district. Whether the charter school is given a waiver of termination depends on how well the schools FCAT gains from the 2013-14 school year measure up to those of nearby district schools. According to Florida law, the schools gains must be equal to or better than those of surrounding schools. The gains of Shining Stars third-, fourthand fifth-grade students will be compared to those of students at Pinemount, Summers and Westside elementary schools. The gains of its sixthand seventh-graders will be compared to the gains of students in those grades at Richardson and Lake City middle schools. FDOE told the Reporter earlier this month that the school district will be allowed to comment during the Monday meeting, but Huddleston said the district wont do so except to answer any questions its asked. DOE said the school district is allowed to comment on the schools FCAT gains. But ultimately, the state education board is the one that decides whether to grant Shining Star a waiver of termination. Teachers, volunteers, students and their parents spoke during the public comments section of Tuesdays school board meeting to tell the board how much they love Shining Star and to ask if there was anything the board could do to help the school stay open. One of the schools teachers, Jennifer Richard, said if Shining Star shuts down, its students will lose the school they love so much. For them to be able to go there and paint or draw, it actually draws them into the school and excites them. If we lose this, they lose that, she said. Im very proud of what weve done 129 points is not something to shrug at. And yes, we missed the mark. We did. Thats on us, but we worked really hard with moving forward. Richard said she hopes the school gets at least one more year. We hope that differences aside we are given that chance, she said. Eight others, including two students, spoke about why they want Shining Star to stay open, and some, like Richard, asked that the board and district put aside perceived differences with Shining Star to help the school stay open. There have been claims that the school district purposely denied Shining Star a chance to work with the state differentiated accountability team, which provides instructional review for schools, this past year. Huddleston said the team goes to schools when principals request it. He said Shining Star Principal Tony Buzzella did not, which is why the team didnt go. If theyre (the public) implying that we specifically denied them (the school), thats not true, he said. At the school board meeting, one Shining Star parent, Christina Sivik, said her daughter loves Shining Star so much she wants to go to school even when shes sick. Her daughter, Kelsey Sivik, began crying during the meeting as she talked about how much she loves her school. Like my mom said, I dont care if Im sick or not, I want to go to school. I want to be a nurse when I get older. They help me with that. My science teacher helped me with that. He did everything he could for us, and our principal Dr. Buzzella is doing the same for us, she said. I couldnt ask for a better school. One woman, Bernice Presley, who volunteered one day a week at Shining Star during the past year, said the grade the school has received is not reflective of its students. Those students are truly someone special. I dont know who graded them, but God has the last word, she said. When they leave Shining Star, they are ready to be productive individuals... They are truly shining stars. Shining Star needs to stay open. During its first year of operation, the school received 248 out of a possible 800, and during the 201314 school year received 377 out of 800. A score of 395 is required for a grade of D. In both instances, Shining Star was the lowest-scoring school in the district. Shining Star had planned to appeal this years grade of F but notified the district Friday it would not, district officials said.

Charlie Crist is getting some help for his challenge to incumbent Gov. Rick Scott. And its coming from Florida taxpayers. Crist on Friday received more than $474,000 when he received his second check of public matching funds. He has now received slightly more than $1 million in state money to assist his campaign. Crist is not the only politician getting taxpayer matching help during the 2014 election. Former state senator Nan Rich has received slightly less than $200,000. Crist and Rich are Democrats. But all three Republican incumbents running for state Cabinet spots have also received taxpayer funds. Crist also accepted public money back in 2006 when he ran as a Republican. Any candidate running for a state office can qualify for matching money from taxpayers. The GOPcontrolled Legislature tried to repeal public financing of campaigns, but voters defeated the constitutional amendment in 2010. The amount of matching money each candidate receives is based on how much money is raised from Florida residents. Donations from corporations or outof-state residents cant be matched. Those who accept the matching money must abide by spending limits, but that limit does not apply to money spent by outside political committees or parties. Some Republicans have labeled public financing welfare for politicians but Crist in the past has defended accepting the money. Former Gov. Jeb Bush refused public money, as did both Scott and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink in 2010. Scott that year sued in federal court and successfully blocked a provision that would have given his primary opponent a dollar for dollar match based on how much money Scott spent. Greg Blair, a spokesman for Scotts re-election campaign, criticized Crists decision to accept the taxpayer funds. Charlie Crist is a millionaire who already receives a taxpayer-funded pension, and now hes making Florida taxpayers fund his false, negative attacks, said Blair. Kevin Cate, a spokesman for Crist, contended that by criticizing Crist the Scott campaign is also attacking his fellow Republican Cabinet members in a bid to do anything to hold on to power for his corporate giveaways.

Christina Michele Gonzalez, 34, and Julian Griffin Luke, 43, both of 116 NE Bamboo Terrace, were arrested for criminal mischief/damaged property, burglary and trespassing, the report says. Both were booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility at 11:30 a.m., and both were still in jail at press time on a $7,000 bond. According to the report, the owner of the home got a call from her neighbor who told her there were two people at her house stealing from her. She said her neighbor also said the couples red pickup truck was stuck in her backyard. When she arrived at her house, she asked Gonzalez and Luke what they were doing, and they said they had permission from another woman to be on the property to pick up a washer and dryer, the report says. The homeowner looked in the couples truck to see that some of her Christmas decorations, including tree lights and a Christmas tree, were in it. When the woman questioned them about it, Gonzalez reportedly walked some of the items over to the house and placed them beside it. The stolen items include six sets of Christmas tree lights, valued at $40 each; four sets of Christmas lights that go on the outside of a house, valued at $100 each; one Christmas tree, valued at $150; and other outside Christmas decorations valued at $150. The victim told CCSO the couple drove over her septic tank multiple times. She also said they damaged her yard by driving on it and getting their truck stuck.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Applause came with a price for Fort White Highs football team. Prior to Saturdays Fan Fare celebration, head coach Demetric Jackson had the Indians on the practice field at 8 a.m. for practice and a scrim-mage. We got some good work in and really needed it with all the rain this week, Jackson said. We needed some work to get into game shape. We went up-tempo in game situa-tions. Jackson and his staff stacked up the defense for the scrimmage. We put experience on defense and it kind of showed, Jackson said. The defense got after us pretty good. We made too many miscues on offense. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The Fort White Quarterback Club celebrated the impending start of football season with its annual Fan Fare at Deese Park in Fort White on Saturday. Shayne Morgan, the Voice of the Indians, served as master of ceremonies. Fans were introduced to players, coaches and cheer-leaders for the varsity, junior varsity and middle school football teams. Head coach Demetric Jackson welcomed those in atten-dance and thanked the vol-unteers and supporters of the Indians. There was much more than introductions. The Point, a band from the First Baptist Church of High Springs, played sets for the crowd. The mem-bers are under the direc-tion of youth pastor Nick Carter and all attend Fort White High. Barbecue chicken and rib dinners were on sale and there were drinks and snow cones to help fight the heat. A cake raffle fund-raiser capped the festivi-ties. The Quarterback Club sold season tickets, T-shirts and memberships. There was a face painting booth to get fans in the football spirit. We are very blessed the weather cooperated this year, Fort White Quarterback Club presi-dent Margie Kluess said. The Quarterback Club continues to grow and By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comPutting the pads on has enabled Columbia High head coach Brian Allen to enter the next phase of evaluation. With only one week remaining of practice time before the games begin, its a needed assessment period for the Tigers. It comes as no surprise that the leaders for this years team remain primarily the same. Zedrick Woods, Lonnie Underwood and Kemario Bell have remained themselves, Allen said. But the surprises are what Allen has really been looking for. Josh Walker has been a big surprise, Allen said. Hes a wrestler that decided to play football and will really help us at guard replacing Milla Chasteen. Im excited about what Ive seen from him in shoulder pads. On the other hand, Allen is looking to see more from certain play-ers in full equipment. Doug Johnson is a player we talked about, but the game is mov-ing a little faster for him now, Allen said. Hes taken a couple of steps back, but at the same time he has a ton of ability and a lot of time ahead of him. On the defensive side, Allen has noticed surprises as well, despite working with the offense this year. Brandon Maxwell is a pleasant surprise, Allen said. Hes slotted as a starter at our three technique defensive tackle. As far as stand-outs, Roger Cray is still the best in the state at cornerback in my opinion.

L ake City Community College baseball still lives in the Major Leagues. Former Timberwolves head coach Tom Clark is an area scout for the Chicago Cubs and three of his players are in the Bigs. The latest to join the MLB list is catcher Roberto Perez, who was called up by the Cleveland Indians on July 10 and immediately made an impact against the New York Yankees. Perez went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored. If Perez could play the Yankees every day, he would make the all-star roster. In a second game against New York, Perez went 2-for-4 with a run. He has appeared in 10 games to date and carries a .290 average with nine hits (two walks) in 31 at bats. Perez has scored four runs and added an RBI and double to that debut against the Yanks. Brian Schlitter returned to the Cubs this year, but is presently on the 15-day disabled list. Schlitter has had a break-out year as a reliever with a 3.47 ERA in 49 13 innings, scattered over 53 appearances. He has 25 strikeouts and 15 walks, and pitched seven innings in his last 10 appearances. Schlitter got his first win on May 3 and has a record of 2-3. Schlitter had a brief stint with the Cubs in 2010. He was 0-1 with eight innings pitched in seven games. He struck out seven and walked five and ended up with a 12.38 ERA. The MLB veteran of the former Timberwolves is Carlos Corporan, who is back-up catcher for the Houston Astros. This season Corporan has been in 45 games and has 33 hits (seven walks) in 138 at bats (.239). He has five home runs, five doubles, 18 RBIs and has scored 15 runs. Corporans Major League totals are 189 games, 562 at bats, 127 hits, 46 runs, 20 doubles, one triple, 16 home runs and 62 RBIs with a batting average of .226. Lake Citys Michael Kirkman signed with LCCC before agreeing to a contract after he was drafted by Texas. Despite the Rangers using 35 different pitchers this season, Kirkman has remained at their Triple A club in Round Rock. After a shaky early season when he was starting for the Express (0-3 in four starts), Kirkman has recently shined out of the bullpen. In his last 10 games, Kirkman has pitched 19 23 innings with 21 strikeouts and six walks and an ERA of 1.83. He has gone 4-1 with one save. Kirkman has evened his season record at 5-5 and lowered his ERA to 4.86. In 30 games and 46 13 innings pitched, he has struck out 51 and walked 29. There were 29 players in The PGA Blitz on Aug. 9.

A s Mike McRae and I headed towards the location wed be fishing for a few hours, he was describing different parts of the Suwannee River in better detail than a nautical Rand McNally. He knew where every hole, channel, oyster bar, tree stump and fiddler crab could be found. I learned more in that quick boat ride about the Suwannee than I had in my previous dozen trips combined. We pulled into our spot and Mike knew wed have 15-20 minutes before the bite turned on. With only a three-hour window to fish there wasnt much time, but sometimes thats all you need. So, we rigged our rods and caught live bait, while studying the shoreline and water flow (its not just tidal flow at the Suwannee) and getting everything in place. In order to truly take your fishing to the next level, you have to not just catch fish but you have to know why you caught fish. Always be aware of your surrounding and take detailed notes. There were just two of us fishing, but at one point we were working six rods: two bait-catching rigs, two shrimp, one live bait and one big topwater. This can turn into a Chinese fire drill, but if you know what youre doing and, more importantly, are respectful, then you can work in tandem. The first bite went to Mike on a jumbo shrimp, and he gave it a few seconds with a sinking bobber, and set the hook. A plump, 19-inch trout fell victim; I grabbed the net, and it was added to the cooler. Within a few minutes we were starting to see the activity pick up, and I had several big blow-ups on my bone Super Spook. They missed it each time, but the life on the flat was starting to pick up. Im a huge proponent of action while fishing. I like to work my topwaters fast and furious, and Im very aggressive with the Cajun Thunder, so we amped up the action to draw the fish to our bait and lures. At this point Mike hooked me up with a frisky, fresh pinfish on my 3/0 blood red circle hook. Boom! Within seconds I hooked another fat trout pushing 20 inches. Somehow, during all of this, we remained untangled, and we both continued to work multiple rods. While the trout action picked up, Mike was consistently catching puppy drum (smaller redfish) along the shoreline. I would venture to say he caught over 50 in two hours, most in the 16-18-inch range which bodes well for the future stock. At one point we had multiple bobbers sunk, and I had to ditch the topwater. We put over half a dozen heavy trout in the cooler, and mixed in some lower slot redfish. At the peak of this action I hooked something real big. A few seconds after the bobber disappeared I reeled down on the circle hook, and a five-foot blacktip shark took to the air. It exploded to the surface, clearing the water by several feet, and then started ripping off line. There are times where this can be fun, and theyre actually quite tasty, but we were more concerned with maintaining our location, so I locked down the drag, and broke him off. The biggest issue with sharks in shallow water, and porpoises as well, is that they can absolutely shut off the bite. They will clear out an entire flat, and this gray missile did just that. Everything spooked, and we waited about 30 more minutes with some small reds and a couple of hits, and eventually I hooked a big alligator gar. Combined with an earlier jack crevalle I officially took the lead of the trash-can slam, and I held on for the title. The highlight of the rest of the night came with the last few pinfish in the livewell. The sun was setting, and the tide was ripping out, and I had one fish pick up my big pinfish and absolutely dump the reel. It blistered off line in a matter of seconds, and somehow missed the hook. Our best guess was that it was a BORF (Big Ole Red Fish), potentially a tarpon, or maybe even a loaner cobia. Well never know! For a quick trip Mike and I had a nice cooler full of fish, and throttled home under the orange sky. I had witnessed first hand an unexpected big trout bite in 90-degree water, and chalked it up to the skills of the Fish Whisperer.Q Rob Chapman IV is a tournament-winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comT he back-to-school shopping season is going strong in Columbia County. Bryant Jennings, Star Tech Computer Center owner, said back to school sales have been excellent this season. Its been a very good year, very busy, he said. Jennings said the business has been brisk since the back the school sales tax holiday and remained steady through the last minute back to school rush. Its been a good season, he said, noting this years back to school busi-ness has topped last years back to school sales. Its a busy time of year anyway. Last year the Florida Legislature added more electronic items to its sales tax holiday and Jennings said he believes that spurred business. People planned for it ahead of time a little more, he said. Electronics tend to be little higher priced items, so it requires in a lot of households for a little more budget planning. I think this year that was evident and people were planning for the (sales tax) holiday this year. Jennings said consumers purchased lots of Apple products and lap top computers were some of the more popular items targeted during the back to school sales. Bob Smith, co-owner of Smittys Western Store, said the store has expe-rienced a tremendous back to school sales sea-son. The kids that work and buy their own clothing they buy one thing and the kids that mom and dad buy for are a little more liberal than the kids that work for their money, he said. Its really kind of cool to watch these kids come in and buy because they want to make a state-ment, be trendy and have something new and differ-ent. After they get through shopping you kind of know what our fall season is going to be about because they set the pace on it. Smith said the business hasnt experienced an extreme difference in the amount of customers who took advantage of sales tax holiday specials compared to last minute back to school shoppers. The kids that worked during the summer are a little more conscious of their dollar and thriftier, he said. They honestly shopped earlier, loved to take advantage of sales and tax free holidays. Some of the kids that have been out of town are coming in last minute, but weve had a good season. The National Retail Federation expects the average family with school-aged children to spend $669.28 for back to school items, up 5 percent from last year. That would be the second-highest amount since the industry trade group started tracking spending in 2004. But major retailers like Wal-Mart and Macys are discounting merchandise and increasing spending to upgrade their stores and websites just to grab the attention of U.S. shoppers during the second biggest shopping period of the year. All that discounting and investing has worked to start the season off strong, they say, but it also hurts their bottom lines. Stores are going to have to invest in price and e-commerce aggres-sively in order to be com-petitive, said Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics LLC, a retail research firm. The pie is not grow-ing, and theyve got to do everything they can to keep them from losing market share. Nancy Williams, a Columbia County resident, spent time in the Lake City Mall Friday morning making last minute back to school clothes purchases. I think the sales are about the same as last year, she said, as she pulled shirts off clothing racks at Belk. Im looking for mostly shirts and pants for my son. Even though there wasnt an abundance of shoppers in the store Friday morning, Williams said she enjoyed shopping more during the sales tax holiday than making last minute purchases because she could save on sales tax. Wal-Mart, the worlds largest retailer, says its been investing in several ways to attract shoppers this season. The company cut prices on 10 percent more back-to-school items compared with last year. It also increased the number of back-to-school products sold on its website by 30 percent to 75,000 this year from last year. The company also has made some long-term investments. Wal-Mart said earlier this year it plans to open 270 to 300 small stores during the current fiscal year double its initial forecast to compete with dollar chains. But all that investing has hurt its results. On Thursday, Wal-Mart report-ed that its profit in the latest quarter was virtually flat during the latest quarter. Kohls Corp. also reported flat profit in its latest fis-cal quarter on Thursday, as it cut prices, revamped its beauty departments, and spent on services such as one that enables it to ship online orders directly to shoppers from its stores. The department-store operator also has started to roll out a loyalty pro-gram where shoppers get one point for every dollar they spend, with them receiving a $5 reward for every 100 points.

Jeb Bush lends political star power to ScottBy MICHAEL J. MISHAKAssociated PressHOMESTEAD Jeb Bush is lending his political star power to embattled Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who is locked in a tight race for re-election in the nations largest swing-voting state. Speaking at a metals factory in this South Florida farming community, the former Florida governor and potential White House hopeful on Friday credited Scott with the states economic recovery, saying the incumbent Republican had created a field of dreams for Floridians looking to prosper after the recession. He also criticized Scotts likely Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, as a craven opportunist. Bush said Crist, a former Republican governor who switched parties in 2012, woke up each and every day, as he does today, focused on his ambitions rather than hav-ing a servants heart. For Scott, the stop infused energy into a campaign that has sometimes struggled to connect with voters. Seven years after leaving office, Bush remains one of the most popular politicians in Florida and a revered figure among many Republican voters, who will be critical to Scotts chances in November. Crist was also campaigning on Friday in Miami. The forJEB continued on 2C

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 17-23, 20144CBIZ 4CBIZ 3-wheeled Elio closer to marketBy DEE-ANN DURBINAP Auto WriterROYAL OAK, Mich. Your next commuter car could have two seats, three wheels and get 84 miles to the gallon. Elio Motors wants to revolutionize U.S. roads with its tiny car, which is the same length as a Honda Fit but half the weight. With a starting price of $6,800, its also less than half the cost. Phoenix-based Elio plans to start making the cars next fall at a former General Motors plant in Shreveport, Louisiana. Already, more than 27,000 people have reserved one. Elio hopes to make 250,000 cars a year by 2016. Thats close to the number Mazda sells in the U.S. Because it has three wheels two in front and one in the rear the Elio is actually classified as a motorcycle by the U.S. govern-ment. But Elio Motors founder Paul Elio says the vehicle has all the safety features of a car, like anti-lock brakes, front and side air bags and a steel cage that sur-rounds the occupants. Drivers wont be required to wear helmets or have motorcycle licenses. The Elios two seats sit front and back instead of side by side, so the driver is positioned in the center with the passenger directly behind. That arrangement, plus the low seating position the Elio is just 54 inches tall and the lack of power steering take a little getting used to. But after a couple of spins around the block in this Detroit suburb, it felt like any other small car. Thats partly because its two front wheels stick out by a foot on both sides, aiding balance and preventing the vehicle from tip-ping. The Elio has a three-cyl-inder, 0.9-liter engine and a top speed of more than 100 miles per hour. It gets an estimated 84 mpg on the highway and 49 mpg in city driving. Elio keeps the costs down in several ways. The car only has one door, on the left side, which shaves a few hundred dol-lars off the manufacturing costs. Having three wheels also makes it cheaper. It will be offered in just two configurations with a manual or automatic transmis-sion and it has standard air conditioning, power windows and door locks and an AM/FM radio. More features, such as naviga-tion or blind-spot detection, can be ordered through Elios long list of suppliers. Germanys Daimler also promised to revolutionize American commutes with the Smart car, but that hasnt panned out, says Karl Brauer, a senior analyst with Kelley Blue Book. Smart sold just 9,264 cars in the U.S. last year. The Smart has a starting price of $13,270 for a gas-powered car and gets 38 mpg on the high-way not enough savings or fuel economy to justify sacrific-ing comfort in the tiny car. But, Brauer said, the equation might work in the Elio. If it really gets 84 mpg and doesnt drive terribly, it would justify the compromises youre making in size and comfort, he said. Elio will also save money by selling the cars directly through its own stores and not through franchised dealers, similar to electric car maker Tesla Motors. Elio plans stores in 60 major met-ropolitan areas. Theyll be ser-viced by car repair chain Pep Boys. Paul Elio, a one-time stockbroker and New York City cab driver, dreamed as a kid that he would one day own a car com-pany called Elio Motors. As I matured I decided that was as likely as playing in the NFL, Elio told The Associated Press. But he did earn an engi-neering degree at General Motors Institute now Kettering University and started his own company engineering products like childrens car seats. In 2008, tired of high gas prices and the countrys dependence on foreign oil, he started working on a fuel-efficient car. Equally impor-tant to him was creating U.S. manufacturing jobs and making the car inexpensive enough to appeal to buyers who might oth-erwise be stuck in old, unreliable clunkers. Whatever matters to you, this can move the needle on it, he said. The recession killed his engineering company, but it also pro-vided the opportunity to buy the Shreveport plant when GM filed for bankruptcy protection. Elio Motors plans to employ 1,500 people at the plant. The company has also applied for a $185 million advanced vehi-cle development loan from the U.S. Department of Energy. Paul Elio said so far, reservation holders are older, more affluent buyers who will use the Elio as a second or third car for commuting. Its an and purchase for a lot of folks, he said. So keep your SUV or your minivan or your large sedan, and when youre driving back and forth to work all by yourself, take the Elio. At this price point and this mileage, that works financially for folks. Eventually, though, he believes the car will appeal to high school and college students as well as used-car drivers who want some-thing newer and more reliable. He also hopes to eventually export it to other countries. Ancient sport of kabaddi gets modern twistBy C.RAJSHEKHAR RAOAssociated PressNEW DELHI For centuries, shirtless and shoeless young warriors gathered and grappled on patches of muddy ground near the foot of the Himalayas, practicing the ancient contact sport of Kabaddi. For the most part it was unchanged, and uncomplicated. Like other popular sports in India, though, the modern transforma-tion has been rapid, driven by commercial opportunities and with the intention of going global. Now theres two professional leagues one in India and another which recently kicked off in London. Backers of the pro leagues are marketing slick new versions of kabaddi that they hope will compete with the mushrooming franchise-based sports leagues in India particularly cricket, the runaway suc-cess story of them all. So far, theyre following the formula. Bollywood film stars have been roped in as owners or promoters, elaborate marketing plans have been rolled out and live broad-casting deals done. Were only trying to capitalize on the popularity of the sport among South Asians and expatriates, World Kabaddi League chief executive Raman Raheja explains. We got to know of the potential of this game during the organization of World Cups in Punjab over the past few years featuring teams from around the world. Raheja says it was also the success of smaller leagues across the world that inspired his group to take the tournament to abroad. There are some 200 kabaddi clubs ... and only half of them are in India, he said. Theyre all surviving on ticket sales without government support or sponsorship. That got us thinking and we decided to integrate the fragmented world of kabaddi. The race to franchise-based competitions was sparked by the instant suc-cess of the seemingly made-for-television Twenty20 cricket in India, when compet-ing leagues battled for billions in potential revenue. The now defunct Indian Cricket League tried vainly to stay a step ahead of the Indian Premier League, which was backed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, but lacked recognition from the sports governing bodies. Theres no all-embracing world governing body for the physical, tag-like game of Kabaddi, and the World Kabaddi League and Pro Kabaddi League have slightly dif-ferent formats. The seven-a-side version that is popular in south Asia and has been a regular medal sport in the Asian Games since 1990. One team sends a raider into the rival half of the field to gain points by tackling, wres-tling, grabbing or tagging opponents while chanting kabaddi in a single breath. In the meantime, he tries to touch opposing players and then return to his own half to earn points. If he makes it back, the play-ers he touched are out of the game. Teams take turns to send raiders, with the aim of the defending team to either evade the raider or tackle him in such a way that he cant return to his side before running out of breath. It became popular, particularly in northwestern India, because it requires little more than a square piece of land about half the size of a basketball court for matches, and can be played indoors or out, on the beach, on grass, dirt or mud. But the newer versions are played on synthetic mats and chants of kabaddi have been replaced by a 30-second time limit for each raid. The players also wear shirts providing space for sponsors logos, naturally while electronic scoreboards lend a contemporary look to venues. While the Pro Kabaddi League is affiliated with the International Kabaddi Federation and follows the format used at the Asian Games, the World Kabaddi League allows only one person per team to wrestle with the raider. The World Kabaddi League, which started Aug. 10 in London, will be played in 14 cities across three continents and five countries over five months. Teams such as the California Eagles, Punjab Thunder, Lahore Lions, Royal Kings USA, United Singhs and Vancouver Lions are among eight teams competing for the top prize of $570,000. The players salaries range from $10,000-20,000 per season. The July 26-Aug. 31 Pro Kabaddi League competition, involving eight city-based franchises in India, is backed by a promi-nent TV channel. We strongly believe in the potential of kabaddi, Star India chief executive Uday Shankar said. Were working hard to build it. The sport was mired in controversy in 2011 when doping authorities caught 53 players who either tested positive or refused to cooperate with during testers during the Kabaddi world championships, a competition for national teams held in the Punjab. The head of Indias National Anti-Doping Agency said at the time he was surprised by the high number of doping cases, which resulted in bans for athletes from Britain, the United States, Italy, Spain, Australia, Norway, Germany, Argentina, Pakistan and India. The Indian team won the tournament, and gradually the sport has restored its image. Now, the two pro leagues are generating plenty of interest. Sponsors will adopt a wait-and-watch approach for now, sports marketing pro-fessional Indranil Das Blah said. Its easy to launch successfully since expectations are negligible, but sustaining success is the hard part and thats what sponsors need sustainability. But Blah, the Chief Operating Officer of Kwan Entertainment, doesnt think having more than one league is a problem. While ideally, two leagues of the same sport are never good, the two leagues currently seem to have very different positioning, Blah said. While one sees itself as an Indian league, the other clearly aspires to be a global league. While nobody can predict the long-term viability of the leagues, the players are certainly hoping it lasts. Whod have thought a few years ago that we would be playing this game as paid professionals? said Royal Kings USA play-er Balram Singh, who comes from a farm-ing family in the Punjab. This kabaddi is totally different from what we used to play in our villages and the players are happy to be playing in front of large crowds and earning money from the sport. Panel to weigh economic crime penaltiesBy ERIC TUCKERAssociated PressWASHINGTON The federal panel that sets sentencing policy announced Thursday that it plans in the coming year to consider changes to sentencing guide-lines for some white-collar crimes. The U.S. Sentencing Commission, which earlier this year reduced guideline ranges for drug crimes, unanimously approved its latest set of priorities. The top priority will be continuing to work with Congress on reducing the scope and severity of manda-tory minimum penalties, but another goal will be evaluating the fairness of sentences for economic crimes like fraud, the com-mission said. The panel had been reviewing data for several years, but plans to hear more from judges, victims and others to decide whether there are ways the economic crime guidelines could work better, the commissions chairwoman, Patti Saris, a federal judge in Massachusetts, said in a statement. Defense lawyers who long have sought the changes say a window to act opened once the sentencing commission cut sen-tencing guidelines for drug crimes, clear-ing a major priority from its agenda. Its unclear what action the commission ultimately will take, especially given the public outrage at fraudsters who stole their clients life savings and lingering anger over the damage inflicted by the 2008 financial crisis. But the discussion about tweaking sentences for economic crimes comes as some federal judges have chosen to ignore the existing guidelines in some cases and as the Justice Department, which has said it welcomes a review, looks for ways to cut costs in an overpopulated federal prison system. Sentencing guidelines are advisory rather than mandatory, but judges still rely heavily on them for consistencys sake. Advocates arguing that white-collar sentencing guidelines are mixed up and crazy could weaken support for keeping them in place, said Ohio State University law professor Douglas Berman, a sentenc-ing law expert. The commissions action to soften drugcrime guidelines is a signal that the time is ripe, defense lawyers say. The commission this year agreed to reduce guideline ranges across drug types and then apply that change retroactively to the current inmate population, a move that could permit tens of thousands of drug-dealing felons to seek an early release. The commission says no inmate would be freed early under the change unless a judge determined that the release would not jeopardize public safety. Just as drug sentences historically have been determined by the amount of drugs involved, white-collar punishments typi-cally are defined by the total financial loss caused by the crime. Advocates hope the commissions decision to lower sentencing guideline ranges for drug crimes, effec-tively de-emphasizing the significance of drug quantity, paves the way for a new sentencing scheme that removes some of the weight attached to economic loss. A 2013 proposal from an American Bar Association task force would do exactly that, encouraging judges to place less emphasis on how much money was lost and more on a defendants culpability. Under the propos-al, judges would more scrupulously weigh less-quantifiable factors, including motive, the schemes duration and sophistication, and whether the defendant actually finan-cially benefited or merely intended to. The current structure, lawyers say, means bit players in a large fraud risk getting socked with harsh sentences despite playing a minimal role. Its real easy to talk about 10, 15, 20 years, but when you realize just how much time youre talking about ... its too much, said Washington defense lawyer Barry Boss, an ABA task force member. No one is talking about leniency for imprisoned financier Bernie Madoff, whos serving a 150-year sentence for bilking thousands of people of nearly $20 billion, or fallen corporate titans whose greed drove their companies into the ground. But defense lawyers are calling for a sen-tencing structure that takes into account the broad continuum of economic crime and that better differentiates between, for example, a thief who steals a dollar each from a million people versus $1 million from one person. Any ambitious proposal will encounter obstacles. Its virtually impossible to muster the same public sympathy for white-collar crim-inals as for crack-cocaine defendants sen-tenced under old guidelines now seen as excessively harsh, which took a dispropor-tionate toll on racial minorities. The drug-sentencing overhaul also was promoted as fiscally prudent, because drug offenders account for roughly half the federal prison population. Tea party conservatives and lib-eral groups united behind the change. In comparison, the clamor for changing white-collar guidelines has been muted. The Justice Department, already criticized for its paucity of criminal prosecutions arising from the financial crisis, has said its open to a review but has not champi-oned dramatic change. I dont think theres a political will for really cutting back or retooling the guide-lines, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman said. By MALCOLM RITTERAP Science WriterNEW YORK Its an eye-catching angle in the story of an experimental treatment for Ebola: The drug comes from tobacco plants that were turned into living pharmaceutical factories. Using plants this way sometimes called pharming can produce com-plex and valuable proteins for medicines. That approach, studied for about 20 years, hasnt caught on widely in the pharmaceutical industry. But some companies and academic labs are pursuing it to create medicines and vaccines against such targets as HIV, cancer, the deadly Marburg virus and norovirus, known for causing outbreaks of stomach bug on cruise ships, as well as Ebola. While most of the work in this area uses a tobacco plant, its just a relative of the plant used to make cigarettes. Its definitely not something you smoke, said Jean-Luc Martre, a spokes-man for Medicago, a Canadian com-pany thats testing flu vaccines made with tobacco plants. Medicago has a new production facility in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Once approved by federal authorities, its expected to be able to make 30 million doses of seasonal flu vac-cine a year, or 120 million vaccine doses to fight a major outbreak of pandemic flu if the government requests it.Ebola puts focus on drugs made in tobacco
LIFE Sunday, August 17, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert Bridges754email@example.com In for a treat at the deliR ecently I had the nicest sur prise. My friends, Mary Thrasher and Bonnie, invited me to lunch. They picked me up and we drove to Starke to Tony and Als Deli. Located in an old, restored building in the heart of downtown, it was fun the minute we walked in the door. Al met us with a smile and a big welcome. His laughter is infec tious and he started off our lunch perfectly. The dining room was simply deco rated with the focus on the back wall mural of a quaint, rustic street scene, probably Italian. It seats 50 people. Chatting with Al, we learned that he is originally from Columbia and Tony is from Honduras. Both have over 30 years of restaurant experi ence in New York, Connecticut and Florida (Ocala and Gainesville.) Tony and Al decided to open their own restaurant in Starke and the Deli opened 14 months ago. No alcoholic beverages are served but you can bring your own. Bonnie surprised us with a bottle of an Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, Bernarra 2012 which was perfect with our meal. A variety of menu choicesThe menu offers a variety of salad choices: Caribbean, steak, tilapia, grilled chicken or grilled shrimp. We shared the Caribbean salad which was outstanding. The chicken was marinated in a Jerk sauce and then grilled to perfection. It was served on top of mixed greens, cucumber slices, tomatoes, pineapple, papaya and onions all served with the Jerk dressing. The sauce was sweet, salty and peppery hot.

The recipients are Kaitlin McCarroll, Mallorie Godbey, Rebecca Bailey, Braden King, Melissa Balmer, Hollee Beach and Kasey Blanchard. The State FFA degree is the highest that a student can earn, explained Jill Huesman, senior faculty sponsor for FFA at Fort White. To get it, stu dents have to complete two previous degrees. They begin with the Greenhand degree, which requires enrollment in an agriscience class, payment of FFA chapter dues, ability to recite the FFA creed, and pass ing of an FFA knowledge test. The next step is the Chapter FFA degree, which requires continued enrollment in agri science, payment of chapter dues, and at least 45 hours of participation or acquiring $150 in earnings in a supervised agricultural experience pro gram. Chapter FFA degree recipients also have to partici pate in two activities above the chapter level. State degree requirements are even more demanding. To get a State FFA degree, students have to earn $1,500 or amass 150 hours of expe rience through an SAE, Huesman said. In addition, they have to participate in five FFA activities above the chap ter level, complete 50 hours of community service and have a successful scholastic record. All seven State FFA degree recipients graduated from FWHS last spring, and Huesman could not be more proud of them. These kids have worked extremely hard to get these awards, which are honors in their own right and can help when applying for scholarships. They are wonderful young people and should be commended for a job well done.

Right now you can set out the last plantings of some warm weather crops as well the first plantings of some cool weath er crops. This short window of opportunity provides a wide variety of crops that you can choose to plant now and har vest from the garden in the next few months. This is your very last chance this year to get tomato, pep per, corn, southern pea, pump kin, winter squash and watermel on in the ground. Get out there and get them planted now. These plants will not tolerate cold weather, so they need the next few months to grow and produce before the likeli hood of a North Florida cold spell. A couple warm season crops that can still be plant ed now through September are cucumbers and summer squash. If you are still preparing your garden site and soil for a fall garden, there are many cool season plants that can be planted when you are ready, starting in September. Lettuce and endive prefer cooler weather but are not cold hardy, so plant them only during September and October for the best results. You can start planting the following plants and continue through the fall: kale, beet, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, mustard, radish and onion. Many of these can be grown in the winter months if some frost/freeze protection can be provided during cold spells. Knowing which vegeta bles to grow is only the start, however. Plant varieties will not perform the same under different growing conditions and we all know that Florida has high heat and humidity. The University of Florida has done research to find which varieties will produce the best in our Florida climate. To be successful, grow varieties that are recommended by that research. For more informa tion on recommended vari eties, read Florida Vegetable Gardening Guide at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/vh021 or stop by the Extension office for a copy. Good cultural gardening practices reduce the need for chemical pest controls. Remember to rotate crop families for cultural insect, nematode and disease control. This means that you should not plant the same family vegetables (like peppers and tomatoes, or broccoli and cauliflower) in the same spot in the garden in successive seasons. Keep changing them around so that disease and pest populations wont build up in the soil. The above pub lication has a list of plant fami lies and which ones to rotate. Would you like some real, down to earth answers to your questions about fall vegetable gardening in North Florida? The UF/IFAS Extension in Columbia County is offering two Fall Vegetable Gardening Workshops this coming week. Learn more about soil prepa ration, planting, irrigation and fertilization. Get some gardening tips that will help you be suc cessful. Tuesday, August 19 at 4 p.m. at the UF/IFAS Extension office, 971 W. Duval St., Lake City.

DEAR ABBY: Im a nurse who has been pro viding flu vaccinations for customers in a big box store. Most of them regard us health care workers as peo ple who want to keep them healthy. My problem is par ents who use me as a threat of punishment for their kids. I have had parents drag their screaming, crying kids over to me, telling them that if they dont behave they are going to make me give them a shot. One woman pulled her daughter by the arm, sat her in the chair and said, OK, give her a shot! The little girls eyes filled with tears and she panicked. I looked the woman in the eye and told her I didnt appreciate her making her daughter afraid of me. I told the little one that sometimes we have to take medicine that might hurt us or taste bad, but ONLY because we hoped it would make her better. Then I assured her I wasnt giving her a shot. The woman laughed nervously, said she was just joking and rushed her child away. I worked hard to become a nurse and my goal is keeping people healthy. Parents: PLEASE dont use health care workers as punishment. Youre not helping us to do our job when you cant do yours. NOT THE BAD GUY IN CLINTON, TENN. DEAR NOT THE BAD GUY: Its unfortunate, but some parents do this not only with health care work ers, but also with police offi cers, and its an unbelievably stupid practice. To make a child fearful of the profes sionals they may at some point need is counterproduc tive and poor parenting. If a child is acting up and being disruptive in a public place, a better solution is to remove him or her from the prem ises until you have regained control of the situation. DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old daughter was killed in an auto accident a couple of months after she graduated from high school with honors. She had planned to go to college and become a nurse. Right after graduation she went on a senior trip to Mexico. Two days later she called me wanting to come home. She said everyone was drinking, doing drugs, having sex with strangers and she didnt like it. I bought her a plane ticket and she came home the next day. She died two months later. Eight months went by and I was having a particu larly hard time one night. I prayed for a sign from God that she was in heaven and doing well. The next day, the day before Good Friday, I went to my mailbox. Inside was a postcard from my daugh ter. She had mailed it from Mexico the day before she returned. It was in mint condition and had been lost in the mail for 10 months. The card read: It is beautiful here. Im OK. I miss you and love you, Mommy. Love, Brandi. I was so happy and relieved! I was able to move on with my life after that. I signed up for college a few weeks later and earned my degree four years later. Thank you, Abby, for let ting me share my miracle with you. -SHARON IN LOUISIANA DEAR SHARON: My goodness, you dont have to thank me. Your letter moved me to the point of tears. Although I have printed many letters about pennies from heaven, this is the first time I have heard about a postcard. Im glad it gave you the com fort and validation that you needed. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): You have greater control than you realize. Make things happen by taking action and stating what you want and expect.

Q Genie Norman and is a Columbia County resident who loves good food and fun. This column on favorite recipes and local restaurants appears twice a month. You can contact her at TasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 We chose the brushetta and we were delighted with our choice. Six thick slices of wonderful crispy, homemade, toasted bread were covered with ripe tomatoes, onions, basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper. We had decided that we would share our orders so we would get to try each dish. Our next dish was one of their pizzas. Bonnie chose the Roma Spinach. It was made with their homemade dough covered with spinach, feta, fresh garlic, tomato and mozza rella. Small is 10 inches ($11.95), medium is 14 inches ($12.99) and large is 16 inches ($14.95). It was absolutely one of the best pizzas that Ive had in a long time. The dough is not the thick dough nor the very thin dough but just perfect. Other pizza choices are Meat Lover, Hawaiian, Grandmas, Rio Rancho, Primavera and NY White pizza. Mary ordered the chick en parmesan, which was prepared after she ordered it. Crispy, lightly breaded chicken was topped with their wonderful sauce and mozzarella then baked until it was lightly brown. Delicious. It was served with their homemade garlic bread which was warm and toasty with lots of garlic. I ordered the Shrimp Frangelico and was delighted when it arrived. Beautiful, large shrimp were cooked in a creamy, cheesy sauce with just a bit of tomato gravy mak ing it a light pink color. It reminded me of a Parma Rosa sauce. Which I love. Plus I counted nine jumbo shrimp. Served over pasta with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese, It was really outstanding. I later learned that this is the most frequently ordered dish they serve. Al says the most popular menu items in order are Shrimp Frangelico, Roma Pizza, Lasagna, Chicken Parmesan. So, we had picked three out of four. We could see why they were the most popular. Lots of leftovers I need to let you know that the food that we ordered was delicious but the generous size serv ings made it impossible for us to consume at one sitting. It went home in boxes for their husbands dinner. We didnt waste a scrap. When you find a restaurant that makes its own dough and sauce like this, you wont leave food behind. I need to talk about other menu choices. After all, it is called a deli. Their subs are Turkey Bacon Ranch, Tonys Steak and cheese, French Dip and Italian Combo. I might try the French Dip ($7.69) next visit. It is chick en and pork with spicy mustard and garlic gravy on fresh French bread. Definitely not your roast beef au jus. Wraps are Chicken, Grilled Shrimp, Turkey & Ham and Kims Vegetable. Kims Wrap sounds like my kind of wrap ($6.99) with sauted veggies, gar lic, lettuce, tomato, onion and parmesan cheese. There is a cheeseburg er($6.99) and a loaded cheeseburger ($7.99) both served with fries plus there is a cheese calzone ($5.99) and a Stromboli ($5.95) available if you are so inclined.Cannoli confessionsNow it is time for true confessions. I did order the cannoli for dessert. We shared, so dont be judgmental. The filling was Als mothers recipe and it was light, creamy and delicious. Beautifully plated with chocolate sauce drizzled on top, it was the perfect ending of this delightful meal. This was such a won derful day with Mary and Bonnie. I cant say thank you enough. It was so thoughtful for them to arrange this outing and for it to be so special. They have volunteered to be Taste Buddies any time plus they gave me names of more restaurants to try. Just a perfect visit. Tony & Als Deli is located at 200 E. Call St., Starke. Telephone num ber is 904-368-0032. It is open Monday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. 9:00 p.m. Tell Al that I sent you. DELIContinued From 1D The cannoli is filled with Als mothers recipe and is light, cream y and delicious. Photos by GENIE NORMAN/ Special to the ReporterShrimp Frangelico from Tony and Als Deli is seen in the foregro und with Chicken Parmesan, Caribbean Jerk salad and Roma Spinach pizza.
