By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com Plea bargains for two local women facing voter fraud charges from the 2010 city elec tion have not been completed, but state officials hope to have the case resolved by the end of next month. William Bill Cervone, Eighth Judicial Circuit State Attorney, said the plea bargains for Betty Jefferson and Linda Ivery are still in the works. Nothing has been finalized, he said, during a telephone inter view Tuesday morning. I am engaged in conversations with the defense lawyers representing the two defendants and I antici pate we will have something con cluded before the next court date in September. Cervone did not offer any details into the plea bargain nego tiations. Jefferson and Ivery are facing voter fraud charges stemming from the 2010 election when Jeffersons husband, Eugene, defeated the three other candi dates in the Lake City District 10 City Council race by collecting more than 69 percent of the vote. Soon after the election, allega tions of voter fraud emerged and Cervone was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to prosecute the case. Assistant state attorney Brian Kramer is handling the case on his behalf. Although the allegations into voter fraud were first alleged in 2010, Cervone noted that his office has been handling the case for less than a year.

Don Pardo, the eras-spanning radio and TV announcer whose resonant voice-over style was celebrated for its majesty and power, died Monday in Arizona at the age of 96. Pardos strong jaw and leading-man smile were seldom on display, but for more than 60 years his elegant pipes graced newscasts, game shows (during the original run of Jeopardy!, its emcee ritually called on him to Tell em what theyve won, Don Pardo) and especially SNL, where he played an integral role through last season, heralding the lineup, like always, as recently as the May finale. He was inducted into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame. Pardo is survived by five children.Marley musical opens next year NEW YORK A musical about Bob Marley that uses the Jamaican reggae icons music is in the works for next year.

Linda Maddox, 63, and her twin grandsons were sleeping in a bedroom after her son, who is the boys father, had left for work at the postal service, deputies said. Maddox told deputies she had placed a chair against the bedroom door handle for extra protection while they slept. When she heard the chair sliding against the wood floor about 1 a.m. Tuesday, she assumed it was an intruder and grabbed a loaded .22-caliber revolver she keeps by the bed and fired one shot in the dark toward the door. Seconds later, she heard her grandson Tyler Maddox scream, deputies said. He was shot once in the upper body. He was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.Palatka detective jailed in prostitution sting ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH A Palatka police detective has resigned after being arrested in a St. Johns County prostitution sting. Palatka police say 48-year-old Reno Chevelle Fells resigned on Sunday after his arrest at a St. Augustine Beach hotel on Friday night. The St. Johns County Sheriffs Office says Fells responded to an online ad offering sex for money and was directed to a specific hotel. The sting operation called Operation Summer Lovin resulted in 14 arrests and was organized after hotel owners complained about prostitution. Police say Fells is being charged with procurement for prostitution or soliciting a prostitute. He was released on $500 bail.

By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE The states tourism marketing arm said Tuesday that Florida continues to attract a record numbers of visi tors --and their money. Visit Florida President Will Seccombe told Gov. Rick Scott and the state Cabinet that an estimated 24 million visitors came to the Sunshine State from April to June, which represents a 3 percent increase from the second quarter of 2013. If you think about how a lot of people came to Florida, they came here as tourists first, Scott said. The first quarter also saw about a 2.5 percent increase in visitors from the same period a year earlier, with the number of people vis iting Florida in 2014 now around 50 million. While the numbers are exciting, I think proba bly the most important to everybody in this room is the fact that spending is up even more, Seccombe said. Visitors spent $35.7 bil lion from January to May this year, up 7.4 percent from the same period in 2013, according to Visit Florida. That translates into increased sales-tax revenue for the state, Seccombe said. Seccombe estimated that 24 percent of the sales taxes collected in Florida during the second quarter were the result of people traveling into the state. The goal for Scott and Visit Florida remains 100 million visitors within a sin gle year, though lawmak ers gave the governor less than three-fourths of the $100 million for tourism marketing that he said was needed this year to reach that goal. For all of 2013, the state welcomed an estimated 94.7 million tourists, about a 3.5 percent over 2012. The $74 million allocated by legislators for tourism spending is still a boost from 2013, when Visit Florida was budgeted $36 million. Seccombe said the addi tional money allows Visit Florida to market year-round. This is the first year we had a winter weather-driv en campaign in our major markets, and it happened to coincide with the polar vortex, he said. The state estimates that 1.15 million Floridians, out of a workforce of 9.6 million, have travel-related employment. While domestic travel dominates the visitor num bers, Visit Florida estimat ed there were 2.8 million overseas tourists in the sec ond quarter of this year, a 6.2 percent increase from a year earlier. Canadians represented 1 million visitors, a 1.6 per cent increase quarter to quarter. Also, the state esti mates 3.7 million Floridians remained in the state for pleasure trips during the quarter. By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested for sexual assault Saturday morning after he had sex with one of his female roommates while she was passed out on the floor of their home, according to a Lake City Police Department arrest report. James R. Bogle, 41, was arrested for sexual assault of a victim more than 12 years old when the victim is physically helpless to resist, the report says. The sister of the victim, who is also one of their roommates, told LCPD she walked into the living room of their home to see Bogle having sex on the floor with her passed out sister. According to the report, the sister said she pulled Bogle off the victim and Bogle began telling her that he loved her sister. The aunt of the sisters also told LCPD she saw Bogle having sex with the victim. The report says the victim was in shock after she woke up and was told what happened. According to the report, the victim said that on Friday night she had some friends over and they had a couple beers together. The victim also told LCPD while she was hanging out with her friends one of them left and went somewhere to get cocaine. She said she did cocaine with her friends and then went to sleep after they left, according to the report. The victim doesnt remember anything from the time she fell asleep to the time she was woken up by her sister and aunt. The victim was taken to the hospital for medical treatment where a sexual assault kit was used and then placed into evidence along with her clothing. Bogle was booked into Columbia County Jail at 8:58 a.m. on Saturday. As of press time, he was still there on a $50,000 bond.

W hen the Republican-controlled House of Representatives reneged on its promise to take up immigration reform before heading off on vacation, President Barack Obama vowed to take matters into his own hands by the end of summer. Obama hasnt spelled out his plans, but the smoke signals from the White House suggest hes mull-ing a broader version of the 2012 executive decree that lifted the threat of deportation for thousands of immigrant children brought here illegally by their parents. By some accounts, the president could extend a similar break to some 5 million undocumented immigrants. Can he do that? The notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true, Obama said in 2011, responding to immi-grant advocates pushing for execu-tive action. Now, though, he seems determined to test those limits. More than a month ago, the New York Times urged Obama to go big on immigration; last week, the Washington Post argued that an intransigent Congress doesnt grant the president license to tear up the Constitution. The real question isnt whether he can, but whether he should. He should not. Obamas 2012 action known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA applies to undocumented youngsters who were raised in the U.S., a group most Americans agree should be held blameless. Now, the president is being urged to spare their par-ents, the undocumented parents of immigrant children who are American citizens because they were born here, and others. This could be accomplished through prosecutorial discretion. The president has the authority to tell immigration officials how to spend their limited resources, and the argument is theyd be better spent deporting felons instead of law-abiding laborers. But it feels like a political stunt, and one that could backfire badly. Our immigration system has been broken for a long time. But the president cannot fix it. He could, in fact, make things worse. An expansive dose of prosecutorial discretion would not repair the hopelessly inadequate visa system that deprives American businesses of legal immigrant labor. It wouldnt address the shortage of high-tech visas. It wouldnt secure the bor-der. It would provide relief from the threat of deportation for some undocumented immigrants, but it wouldnt grant them permanent legal status, and it wouldnt deal with the rest of the 11.5 million at all. What it would do is antagonize the presidents foes in Congress. It would deal with only the most divisive part of the immigration puzzle what to do about those who entered the country illegally without repairing the system that encouraged them to do so. This country needs comprehensive immigration reform. Most Americans including most Republicans support it. It requires an act of Congress. It needs to be done ASAP, and the House Republicans know it. Obama would be foolish to give them anoth-er excuse to put it off.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org A spokeswoman for Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center got it exactly right Monday when she called on the federal government to take a more active role in defend-ing U.S. companies from foreign cyber attacks. Shands Lake Shore, along with its counterparts in Live Oak and Starke, were among more than 200 hospitals hit by hackers who stole personal data such as Social Security numbers, birthdates and more. Luckily, no medical or credit card information was taken. Its just the latest in a series of attacks that have included wholesale assaults on eBay and Target in recent years. Last year, hijackers got their hands on debit and credit card information for more than 40 million Target shoppers. We are not in the habit of calling for federal meddling in matters of private com-merce. However, private-sector companies seem to be little match for the super-sophisti-cated cyber thieves they are up against now, backed as they are by the might of Americas greatest rivals, including, it is believed in this case, China. As it stands, its not a fair fight.Whats needed is comprehensive national cyber defense a systematic effort to shield everyday Americans from the spy-ing eyes of our enemies, even if the State Department describes them differently.

M y sister and I dont see each other often. She lives in South Carolina, in a town where we grew up in a big, crazy family, not much crazier than most. I live in Las Vegas, a place our mother, rest her soul, called Las Vegas of all places. Its a long way from Landrum, S.C., to Las Vegas of All Places. In more ways than just miles. We often talk on the phone, but its not the same as talking face to face, heart to heart. When were together, we do lots of things: Eat in. Eat out. Buy gro-ceries. Eat some more. But most of all, we talk. If you share a history with someone, you cant help com-paring notes, filling in gaps, fitting together the pieces of the stories of your lives. Especially those you cant recall.I remind her she lost her wig in the bumper car arena. She says it didnt happen. It did. She tells me I supposedly hid our aunt Hazels crutches and wouldnt give them back. I dont recall it. Besides, I was a child. Yesterday, on the third day of my sisters two-week visit, we were floating in the pool in my back yard, exhausted from the effort of hoist-ing our bodies onto two large rub-ber rafts. Its funny how things that once seemed so easy become such an effort, not to mention, a pain. I was half asleep when her raft bumped mine. Suddenly I sat up and said, Sissy? What ever became of that monkey? Its a long story. The summer I was 6 and she was 12, Bobbie got to go to Florida, of all places, with Aunt Jane, Uncle Leroy, their five boys and a neighbor named Allen. I didnt go because they said there wasnt room in the pick-up for one more. (Bobbie says it was a car, not a pick-up. Fine. The rest is true.) Somehow, they came home with a monkey. It was little, but not much smaller than I was. Apparently, they didnt mind making room for a mon-key. They named it Terry. Why? Who knows? Bobbie says they were probably running out of names for offspring and such. Anyhow. When they got home, the monkey had a run-in with Uncle Leroys hounds, and the dogs were never the same. Thats how the monkey ended up at our grandparents place. Maybe Granddaddy paid them for it. Who knows how much? My Aunt Clara, the shortest and feistiest and last to wed of my moth-ers eight sisters, was still living at home at the time. She hated that monkey. The feeling was clearly mutual. I wish you couldve seen them. Poor Terry would do some minor misdeed that any monkey might do toss a banana peel on the floor or relieve himself on Aunt Claras shoe and shed launch herself across the room to deliver a blistering tongue-lashing, shaking her short finger in his furry white face. Terry would let her finish. Then he would calmly turn his rump in her direction and start to pat it just so, as if to say, well, never mind, you get the picture. Talk about formative events. Ill never forget it. Where did a monkey learn such behavior? Maybe from our grandmother. So, Sissy, I said again, What ever became of that monkey? I dont know, she said. Maybe Aunt Clara killed it. We floated a while, feeling a little sad. Then we moved on to other more familiar topics: Our mothers depression. Our stepfathers drink-ing. Our fathers suicide. So many stories, funny and sad, with so many missing pieces. Finally, we gave up and went back inside to eat. I told you all of that to tell you this: All families, I believe, are crazy in their own special ways. Most of us have some kind of monkey in our past, patting its rump, begging to be explained. It helps to compare memories with someone you love. Even if she is often wrong and you are always right. The truth is usually some-where in the middle. But how will you find it if you never bother to look? Q Chicago Tribune Dont overreach on immigration Sharon Randall www.sharonrandall.com Q Sharon Randall can be contacted at P.O.

White 7 Florida State Governor: No vote for any candidate Florida Attorney General: No vote for any candidate Federal Primary Election: House District 3-Ted Yoho 7 *Since this is a PRIMARY Election, the committee included members of termination. The group wants to charter the new school in time to continue the current school year. However, the statutory deadline for chartering new schools for the 2014-15 school year has passed. Shining Star had to make an appeal for a waiver of termination because it received F grades during the previous two school years, which under Florida statute is grounds for closure. State law mandates that the district now issue an order of closure. Supt. Terry Huddleston said the school board will vote to approve a 90-day closure at its next board meeting on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Columbia County Administrative Complex at 372 W. Duval St. After that, the district will notify Shining Star of its decision. Then, the district will begin meeting with Shining Star to determine when the schools last day will be. In Presleys letter to the district, she said that the new school would be a kindergarten through 12th grade arts school and would be called Alfonso Levy Charter School. Buzzella told the Lake City Reporter in June that Levy is the man who had the idea to open Shining Star. Presley also wrote in the letter that there will be a new governing board and principal, but the students and teachers of the new school will stay the same. Shining Star Principal Tony Buzzella said he has been asked to have no part in the request for a new charter. The new charter school would use Belmont Academys application, which is a public document and has already been approved by the school district, the letter says. Presley said the Alfonso Levy Charter School would use Belmonts academic structure and Shining Stars model for teaching the arts. We want the students and teachers of Shining Star Academy of the Arts to be able to continue in and smoothly transition through the 2014-2015 School Year that has already begun, Presley said in the letter. However, according to Florida law, a school must apply for a charter by Aug. 1 in order to open the following school year. Presley, a 40-year veteran of the Columbia County School District, requested in the letter that the Columbia County Board of Education waive the Aug. 1 deadline as well as other stipulations in state law that dictate how long it takes for a school to get a charter. Supt. Terry Huddleston said there is no provision in the statute for getting a new charter within 90 days, which should mean Shining Star wont be able to stay open for the remainder of this school year. But he said when it comes to the law, there can never be complete certainty. Presleys request for a new charter school is not currently on Tuesdays school board agenda. When asked late Tuesday afternoon what it means if the request is not on next weeks agenda, Huddleston said the district was still evaluating the request. Items are often added to the agenda addendum the day of the meeting, so its unclear if the request will be discussed at Tuesdays meeting. Huddleston said after the district issues the 90-day closure, it will begin figuring out how to transition Shining Stars current students into other schools. He said Shining Star parents can enroll their children in district schools whenever they like. be a requirement what are the things they have to do and how much, but weve put the money in there for it. Some of the criteria to earning the $10,000 salary increase include successful completion of training, continuing education and meeting performance plan goals. He (Hunter) would need to perform certain tasks to be able to earn additional income, Williams said, noting the criteria would have to be approved by the board. Continuing education will be part of it. Its going to be performance based and Im certain that inclusive in that are going to be things like making contacts as well as things specifically related to training. The budget direc tor request was made by Columbia County Clerk of Court, P. DeWitt Cason. His office had an agreement with the county and was providing the service but is no longer able to do so. The $15,000 stipend will be in lieu of hiring a new full time employee for the position. Williams said the county had an agreement with the clerks office for services that were provided by a budget director. The budget director reviews purchase orders to make sure they are in compliance, makes sure expenditures are coming from the appropriate line items and assists department heads in preparing budget amendments. The budget director also participates in the preparation of the fiscal budget. The clerks office contacted the board a few months ago and said they would not be able to continue that agreement. I was trying to figure out how to do that (fill the position) while spending the least amount of money, Williams said, noting he did not want to hire a full time employee to fill the position this year. That will be discussed more by commissioners. Cason said his office is no longer able to do the work for the county because of the clerks office increasing workload. He said his office has been handling the budget director duties for about 25 years, but about 10 years ago when the county charter was adopted it mandated that budgeting functions are the responsibility of the designated budget officer, which is the county manager. However, the clerk of courts office has been continuing to handle many of the budgetary functions coinciding with the clerks constitutional responsibilities to be the countys accountant, auditor and fund custodian. Cason estimates that 20 percent of the cur rent financial directors 50-hour work week, roughly 10 hours, is spent on county work, which includes making decisions on sources of funds for board decisions, budget amendment processing during the year and work on TRIM (Truth In Millage) forms. The county did not pay a separate amount for the budget director duties. The county funded a finance position in full with a $73,269 salary for the employee. The proposed budget also includes a $10,000 stipend for the countys web developer, Patrick Weaver, to provide services as records custodian pertaining to grants. The stipend would be lieu of hiring a new full time employee. Williams said the grants position was noted in both the audit ending Sept. 30, 2012 and Sept. 30, 2013. The proposal is to have all grants centralized in one location, rather than having some at public works, some at emergency management and other county departments so they will all be centralized. There was a number of ways to accomplish those two goals, but what we choose to at least propose for discussion was just paying a stipend to existing employees and we did that for two reasons, he said. It was the least costly of all the options and we felt like it would give us some time to actually find out what was needed. He said with the proposal they would be able to find out exactly what would be required in man hours and revisit the issue in the future. It is not a new position. The proposed salary adjustments and stipends were discussed last week when Williams unveiled the countys proposed 2014-15 fiscal budget during a budget workshop. We are proposing to give cost of living raises to those employees who make $41,000 a year or less, Williams said, during a telephone interview. Employees who earn a salary greater than $41,000 annually will also reap some benefits from the proposed 2014-15 fiscal budget. The county is provid ing an increase in retirement benefits for those employees and providing additional money to keep a non contributory employee health care plan. It will cost us more to employ them, but they wont be participating in cost of living adjustments, Williams said, noting it costs the county approximately $400,000 to provide the $1,000 cost of living increases. Williams said the countys proposed $44,851,425 fiscal budget: Fully funds all constitutional officer budget requests; Fully funds increases in Florida retirement system contribution rates as approved by the Florida Legislature (depending on retirement class, contribution rates increased from .35 percent to 10.22 percent); Provides for the continuation of a non-contributory employee health care plan; Provides salary adjustments and raises, including all employees (excluding sheriffs office, property appraiser and tax collector) earning $41,000 per year or less will get a $1,000 cost of living adjustment. Creates an Equipment Replacement Plan for technology at $125,000; and Fully funds the operation of all three branch libraries (requires $538,429 in non reoccurring fund balance). Williams said the county received additional funds in new revenue for its 2014-15 fiscal budget. Some of it is new construction and property values have rebounded. The county did not raise the millage, he said. Value did increase because there was some new stuff added and also because property values rebounded from the recession. whenever it got to them and having it transferred to me is accountable for some of that delay, he said. Jefferson faces 24 felony and two misdemeanor violations of state election laws and two counts of intimidation. Ivery is charged with six felony and two misdemeanor counts of election law violations and two counts of intimidation. Cervone said the two defendants likely will not be offered the same plea deal. Its a little bit premature to answer that, but any resolution I would contemplate would take into account that there is some difference in quantity of what was involved, perhaps quality as well, for each of the ladies, he said. Mrs. Jefferson has more charges specifical ly addressed against her than does Ms. Ivery. The case has been continued in court and the next scheduled court date is in late September. ...Whatever that court date in September is Im hopeful that will be the opportune date to get this resolved, but there are no guarantees, Cervone said.

Gray was honored on Thursday with the Emerging Leaders Award, part of the SUNsational Award presented by the Florida Festival and Event Association. It began in fifth grade when Gray went on a field trip to the Olustee Battlefield east of Lake City. He said he was captivated by the authentic camps, how the re-enactors dressed and how it was almost as if he had stepped back in time for the day. I knew right then and there that I wanted to be one of the actors, Gray said. Gray immediately began re-enacting after his fifth-grade field trip. For the past five to six years he has been part of the Blue Grey Army, where he participates in the battle and is part of the organization that brings it together. The Olustee Battle Re-enactment is one of the biggest and most profitable events in the Southeast, Gray said. In February 2013, as many as 3,000 re-enactors participated in the battle, around 40,000 people were present and all combined efforts produced an economic impact of $4 million in one weekend. One of Grays most memorable moments on the battlefield happened around three years ago. He said it had been non-stop raining and cold weather for the entire weekend. As Gray crawled out from his tent he said he stood up, held out his palm and begin to see snow flurries. Some people would call us crazy, but were not. Were dedicated, he said. Gray said he has been questioned several times why he participates in a battle that happened in the 1800s. He said his answer is simply, These battle re-enactments are more than just a battle to see who wins. They are to portray history as a whole. He said working for the organization was like working with his family. This past year, the Blue Grey Army celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Olustee, and Gray was able to travel around the state to advertise and recruit for the re-enactment. With Gray as captain and commander, he assembled a battalion in 2009 composed of nine soldiers and six civilian re-enactors between the ages of 14 and 20. A year later, this group was featured on the official Olustee Festival poster. Gray said his job enabled him to be inventive as he created new ways to recruit re-enactors through media relations and was able to increase sponsorship for the organization. When Gray was nominated for the award he was shocked, he said. The SUNsational Award presented by the FFEA is awarded to individuals recognizable by their innovation, individuality and creative collaboration, according to its website. The FFEAs mission is to promote and strengthen the festival, event and fair industry in Florida. The award was presented last week at the Annual Convention and Tradeshow held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando. Although Gray was not able to accept the award personally, the staff at the Columbia County TDC was able to accept it on his behalf. It was a real humbling and touching experience to be given an opportunity like this as a young leader. I would personally like to thank the Blue Grey Army, and I hope that I can continue to meet great expectations, Gray said. Paulette Lord, marketing director of the Columbia County TDC and treasurer of the Blue Grey Army Inc., said it came as no surprise when Gray won the award. She said she believed he was nominated due to his deep involvement within the organization and his passion for re-enacting. Cody is a personable young man who has grown from a young age into the responsible man we see today, Lord said. Were very proud of what he has done.Gray an Emerging Leader EMILY BUCHANAN/ Lake City ReporterCody Gray, 24, recently received the Emerging Leaders Award of 2014, part of the SUNsational Award presented by the Florida Festival and Event Association.

Ive dealt with depression on and off for years, and I was wondering if you have any natural suggestions for me to ask my doctor about? L.C., Gainesville, Florida Answer: When I hear a person say theyve battled depression on and off for a long period of time, I ask the question why it is on and off? Something you are eating, doing, or taking is impacting you so much so, that your mood is affected. Hormone imbalances are frequently the problem, especially estrogen and testosterone. Thyroid hormone is my specialty, and if it drops too low, you get depressed. When it moves into a healthy range, you feel happy and content. When I say normal range I dont mean the normal reference range indicated on your lab test. My opinion is that the so-called normal range is based upon a sick and hypothyroid population. This may explain why you feel terrible but your levels are normal. I dont go by labs, I go by clinical presentation. I adored Robin Williams, he was brilliant, and behind his smiling eyes and hysterical jokes, he battled depression for years. You may feel the same way as you read this today, and I am glad youre still holding on. Depression is one of those conditions that people judge. Here are some reasons for depression that you might explore with the help of your physician: Hypothyroidism and hypoadrenia: Ive mentioned this one already, however, I want you to get a copy of my Thyroid Healthy book so you learn how to test properly. Testing and treatment is the key to your happiness. Also, do not take thyroid medicine until your adrenal glands are strong and healthy. You may need to be supported adaptogenic herbs, a healthy diet, relaxation and other stress reducers. The Pill-: Synthetic hormones for birth control or menopause reduce your bodys levels of B vitamins and minerals to the point where you cannot manufacture happy brain chemicals. A reduction in key neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin causes depression. It could be on and off as you describe. Statins and Binders: We know these drugs reduce CoQ10, but do you realize they crash your ability to activate vitamin D? Ever heard of seasonal affective disorder or SAD? That is often related to low D levels so you might need D if you take cholesterol reducers. Medications: Drugs mug life-sustaining nutrients. Ibuprofen steals folic acid, and diabetic drugs steal B12. Read my Drug Muggers book for more drug-induced nutrient depletions. If you take medications periodically, then you cant make neurotransmitters, then you deal with that on and off situation you describe. Infections: Last on my list but huge news. Certain infections that we carry in our body can affect the brain. You can have bipolar, depression, insomnia and/or anxiety because of Bartonella, Lyme, syphilis, HIV, fungal infections (and their mycotoxins), herpes and many others. Clearing the infection improves mood better than any prescribed antidepressant. Uncover the cause of your depressionDEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Cohensuzycohen24@gmail.com Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist in Gainesville. StatePointOne out of every three adults over 65 years old falls each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And for older adults with dementia, the risk of falling is three times higher than those with no cognitive impairment, according to the AARP Bulletin. However, research supports the notion that many of the physiological changes related to aging -such as loss of balance -can be prevented or postponed with regular exercise. With this in mind, its no surprise that many senior living communities are making comprehen sive health and wellness programs available to their residents. Were seeing residents increase their mobility, endurance and balance, and improve their range of motion and fitness levels, says Katie Westberg, national director of Life Enrichment at The Goodman Group, a company that has developed a new fitness program for its senior living and health care communities. Additionally, Westberg cites that participants feel better and are having fun, showing quick results to their overall well-being, Many of the residents involved in our FIT Functional Fitness program start seeing long-lasting and significant strength training benefits within an eight to 16 week period. The experts behind the FIT Functional Fitness program, a new, national, personalized functional fitness program developed by The Goodman Group in partnership with a physical therapist and board certified geriatric specialist, are offering some tips for older adults looking to improve their well-being and restore their vigor. Engage in exercises that can improve your core strength, balance and cardiovascular health. If you live in a senior living community, inquire about on-site programs. Additionally, many community centers and health clubs conduct exercise classes designed specifically for senior health. Invest in a stationary bike. Its easy to incorporate this activity into your day while watching TV, listening to music or talking to your family, and pedaling lowers blood pressure, according to AARP. Consult your physician before getting started. Your exercise routine should take into account your current health level and functionality as well as your physical needs. Food and health are directly correlated, so pair your exercise with healthy eating. The FIT Functional Fitness program at The Goodman Group, for example, incorporates local, organic, seasonal produce as well as lean protein alternatives and plant strong ingredients in their menu options. Stick to it. Results may come quickly, but a long-term health benefit requires commitment. For more information about senior fitness and health programs, visit www.TheGoodmanGroup. com. While you cant stop time, research shows that with exercise, you may feel better, longer.Regular exercise may stem aging effects in older adults STATEPOINTIts easy to exercise with equipment already found in your home. Certain exercises on chairs can help strengthen your abdominals and walking up and down the stair cases can provide a cardiovascular workout.

Its something wed talked about doing since the beginning of summer but decided to wait until our parents could chip in for an early birthday gift. The last bike I had bought for me was sometime in middle school, think 2002. My husband said he hadnt ridden a bike in over ten years, so I guess we were sitting at close to the same timeline. As we were picking through and eyeing over several bikes at the store, an employee came and asked if we needed any help or had any questions. And he saved the day. We didnt know the first thing about where to start looking for a bike. The one that caught my eye (because I thought it was cute) had 28-inch tires. And if my husband was looking at a bike with 28-inch tires, then surely I shouldnt be looking at a bike with 28-inch tires because hes so much taller than I am. The employee put my worries to rest and informed me that the height of the tire has little to do with the height of the rider. A tire with a bigger diameter will simply have to turn fewer times to cover more ground bigger tires make for easier riding, he said. We had this and all kids of other questions, but before long we were loaded up with two bikes, two locks, two helmets, a water bottle hook and bottle to match, and a handful of other items. We were mighty excited to head out on our first adventure once the Florida rain went away for the day. Not even one minute after mounting the bike and setting off for our first ride, my husbands chain fell off as he switched gears. What do we do now? We managed to get it back on track and set off for an hour-long bike ride on the roads of the town. That was ten days ago and weve ridden nearly every day since. Sorry to say our puppys missing out on the fun she just couldnt keep up with the amount of ground we cover in 60-90 minutes on a bike. But its been so fun to explore the beauty of North Florida. Im glad we splurged. Emily Lawsonelawson@lakecityreporter.com Emily Lawson is the Associate Editor of the Lake City Reporter.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High head coach Brian Allen spoke at Lake City Kiwanis Clubs Tuesday luncheon meeting and whetted appetites for Tiger football. Columbia opens the season at 7:30 p.m. Friday in a kickoff classic game against West Orange High. Not only will the classic be a debut for the 2014 Tigers, but a chance for fans to see the improve-ments at the field. The stadium has been revamped and the field reconstructed, Allen said. As head coach I take a lot of pride in the facility. The home stadium is again representative of the foot-ball teams we have had for years. Allen led the Tigers into the playoffs his first three years and the goal is to go farther. This is year four and I still have the same fire and energy as year one to bring a state championship to Columbia High, Allen said. This will be my first graduating class. Ive had them for four years. The CHS continued on 2BJones glad to be back with GatorsBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida running back Matt Jones was mostly miserable last season. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound junior from Seffner missed considerable time with a viral infection, rushed back for the second game of the season and then injured his knee a few weeks later. He didnt think things could get any worse. But with Jones watching from the sideline, the Gators ended the year with seven consecutive losses and recorded the programs first losing season since 1979. Watching the team just kind of falling apart, that was the toughest thing, he said. Jones is healthy now and eager to prove last year was a fluke for himself and Florida. I think were going to overcome that 4-8 (record), Jones said. We dont have 4-8 in our head no more. This team is kind of rebuild-ing. Were stacked at every position. Especially at running back. With Jones, sophomore Kelvin Taylor, fifth-year senior Mack Brown and versatile freshman Brandon Powell, the Gators have their most backfield depth in years. Throw in red-shirt freshman Adam Lane and former walk-on Mark Herndon, and Florida could be poised to run liter-ally back into conten-tion in the Southeastern Conferences Eastern Division. Sure, quarterback Jeff Driskel and the teams revamped offensive line probably will be more important in determining Floridas success this sea-son. But being able to run the ball consistently has proven to be a champion-ship model for the Gators. And Jones could be the key to making it work. He has the size to pick up tough yards between the tackles, the speed to get to the edge and go the distance, and the receiver skills to be a threat in the passing game. Hes a 230-pound back that, about midway through the third and fourth quar-ter, you get tired of hitting, coach Will Muschamp said. Hes got extremely good hands, hes very good at protection, very smart play-er. ... He looks really good. Hes healthy, hes in shape, hes excited, itching to get started. Jones has adjusted well to new offensive coordina-tor Kurt Ropers spread scheme. As much havoc as Jones can cause on zone, counter and power plays, hes proven to be equally adept in the passing game. I love the offense, Jones said. I love what Ropers doing with the running backs, giving us a chance we can really catch the ball. That will really up our stock just trying to go to the next level. So I feel good about catching the ball. Running back had plagued 2013 season.

R INXS: Never/Apart CHS: Allen likes offensive side Continued From Page 1Bguys have put in the work and Im excited to see where it will take us. Allen said there is spring practice, then three months of summer work-outs. The Tigers attended the UCF summer camp in June. We have 20 summer workouts from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day and they have to make at least half or they are not allowed to play, Allen said. We had 130 kids who got in all their training. Allen has stretched himself, moving over to offense after spending all of his previous playing and coaching career on defense. I am now the offensive coordinator and I look for-ward to that, Allen said. I hope it is a beneficial move and will help us make that leap where we have fallen short. If you get to round two or three every year, one year you will get one of those teams that get as far as round four and then the championship game. The offense got a big boost by putting up 28 points on the defense at a scrimmage on Friday. Our defense is extremely good and that is one of the things I am most excited about, Allen said. Coach (Dennis) Dotson is one of the best defen-sive coordinators in high school and if you get one yard against his defense you have got a pretty good offense. The new offensive coordinator does not get treated with kid gloves. The day I switched over to offense, (Coach Dotson) started blitzing me from the word go, Allen said. We have been able to get a lot of individual training on offense. They are relaxed and we walk through things slow with a lot of teaching. Allen expects the district title to come down to Columbia and Ed White High again this year. That game is Oct. 10 in Lake City. The hopes then are for new heights. We play 10 games to win five, Allen said. That is our mindset each year. The community has been outstanding since I have arrived and I hope I have been a positive since Ive been here.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: Im mar ried to the love of my life. I cant imagine loving a man more than I love Wayne, and I know he feels the same about me. The prob lem is, hes always telling stories about things he has done, including past rela tionships, in graphic detail. I have heard all of them repeatedly, and Im sick of them. When I tell him this he says, Fine! I wont talk to you anymore. Wayne never talks about OUR past, present or future. How can I get him to stop reliving the good ol days and start focusing on our life together? CURRENT EVENT IN KENTUCKY DEAR CURRENT EVENT: Wayne may react defensively when you say youre sick of his stories because he feels you are criticizing him. Perhaps if you told him that hearing him dwell on past relation ships is hurtful, he might be willing to enlarge his repertoire. If that doesnt help, its possible your husband feels his best years are behind him. Past conquests and adventures can be more fun to dwell on than the new lawnmower, the plumbing that needs replacement, which friends are sick and the most recent one who died. Things might improve if you work together to cre ate activities that will spice up your lives and give him some new material. Try it. It might benefit you both. DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with Bob for 12 years. He doesnt work and doesnt take care of our children because he says its not his responsibility. I have sup ported him all this time, yet nothing is good enough. He has cheated on me several times. During his third affair, he had two kids with the other woman. He doesnt understand why I dont trust him and why I insist on seeing his cell phone. The last time I was able to get ahold of it, he broke down the bathroom door trying to get it back. He threatens to move out, and if he does, that will be the last I hear from him. I would be relieved if he went. I have so much anger toward him. I love him, but at this point love doesnt have anything to do with it. I have asked him sev eral times to leave, but he just keeps saying hell be leaving on his own terms. I cant continue like this anymore. He brings out the worst in me and I hate it. What do I do? HAD IT IN PHOENIX DEAR HAD IT: That you have tolerated this behavior for 12 years bog gles my mind. Because this philandering freeloader has resided with you for so long, you may have to go through formal eviction proceedings to get rid of him. You have given him a free ride, and you may need the services of a lawyer to pry him out of there. If you do, consider it money well spent. DEAR ABBY: If a spouse keeps photos of a college sweetheart after 50 years, what does it mean? Does it mean he is still car rying a torch for that per son and doesnt want to for get her? SUSPICIOUS IN HOUSTON DEAR SUSPICIOUS: I doubt it, but if you want to be sure, the person you should ask is your hus band. After 50 years, the torch may be too heavy to carry -or completely out. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can find a bargain, but avoid emo tional spending. Put more into the way you look or the skills you want to develop. A change in the way you approach someone will help you take control and get things done your way. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your feelings, but dont expect everyone to favor what you say. Youll find out where you stand by being honest and straightforward. You will gain personal stability if you can determine the most practical route to take. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont take a chance when it comes to legal, financial or medical issues. Positive change at home that helps you cut corners should be implemented. Dont feel compelled to donate or take care of others. Charity begins at home. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put more effort into taking care of your health. Exercise and a proper diet will be necessary if you want to ward off illness. Discussions that address a stressful matter may not be welcome, but in the end it will be beneficial. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get your plans out in the open before some one accuses you of being secretive. Once you have informed everyone regard ing your plans, you can move forward without feeling guilty. Too much of anything will be overkill. Moderation will be neces sary. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Incorporate your knowledge, findings and experience in order to get ahead and impress some one who may be question ing your ability. Financial change is apparent, but to what extent will depend on how much you are willing to put in and compromise. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Study the situation you face today and what you can do to help. Dont hesitate to take action. Leave your emotions out of any decision you need to make. Base the chang es you make on whats required to reach your intended goal. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone will be watching what you do with a critical eye. Appeal to the sensitivity of any situation you face. A practical approach coupled with a passionate response will help you achieve the results you are hoping for. Protect your health and physical wellness. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Refuse to let anyone pressure you into doing something that isnt going to do you any good. Step back and take a look at your current friends and associates and choose to align yourself with those who share your goals. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Impulsive, unpredictable people are best kept at arms length. You will complement seri ous-minded, dedicated people looking to make improvements to the way things are done. Avoid unnecessary expenditures. Combat poor ideas with worthwhile replacements. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont let anything stand in your way. Check out opportunities that will raise your standard of living. A partnership will take a unique turn to help you reach your goal. Dont argue when you should be making love. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Check out new ways to make your home comfortable and entertaining. An expendi ture that brings you joy will ease your stress. A sugges tion made by someone from a unique background will push you in the right direc tion. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Husband who relives his past should focus on his present Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
