I have a good relationship with [current County Attorney Marlin Feagle], and now were going to begin a transition until I take office January 6. Foreman won in 23 of 24 pre cincts.

By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com A group pushing to charter a new school in place of Shining Star Academy of the Arts for the cur rent academic year isnt giving up, though denied a spot on Tuesday nights school board agenda. Ron Natale II said at the meeting that the group will ask to be put on the Sept. 9 school board agen da, then ask the board to waive the Aug. 1 deadline to apply for a new charter. Natale spoke during the public comments section of the meeting. Also on Tuesday, the board issued a state-mandated 90-day notice of termination for Shining Star after the Florida Board of Education denied the charter school a waiver of termination on Aug. 18, which it needed to stay open after receiving F grades during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years. Since Shining Star received F grades during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years, state law dictated that the school be shut down unless it made a successful appeal based on the learning gains of its students compared to those at other nearby district schools, which it did not.Charter may still have a chance CHARTER continued on 3A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterJimmy Hunt (from left), Gloria Hunt, George Ward and Eugene Jefferson use a smart phone to check voting results on the Supervisor of Elections website Tuesday.

Perry in the District 10 race. Jefferson had a total of 299 votes, 63 percent, while Farmer collected 117 votes, 24.6 percent, and Perry ended with 58 votes, 12.2 percent. Election results were unofficial as of Tuesday night. Im pleased with the result and the turnout, Jefferson said. I was expecting it to be a little bit closer race, but obviously Im pleased. According to unofficial returns, Jefferson won by collecting 204 absentee bal lots of his 299 total votes. In fact, Jefferson collected more absentee ballots than the combined total of both of his opponents through all voting methods. Farmer had 32 absentee ballots and Perry collected 21 absentee votes. Jeffersons wife, Betty Jefferson, is currently under indictment for alleged voter fraud for her role in the 2010 election, in which Jefferson claimed 69 percent of the vote, most in the form of absentee ballots. According to a 2010 affidavit from Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne, most of those ballots were the result of Betty Jeffersons efforts.

The daughter of the dogs handler, Cpl. Jason Gleason, found the dog behind his kennel Sunday evening. The News Herald of Panama City reports Gleason left the dog in his kennel because he was on his way to a training session. Officials say most of the fur was missing from Argos front leg above the paw, indicating a lightning strike. Police Chief Drew Whitman says Gleason is having a hard time dealing with the dogs death. Argo replaced Gleasons former K-9 partner Poncho who disappeared and was presumed dead in 2009 while tracking suspects in the woods. Argo had four national certificates and helped seize about $25,000 in illegal narcotics.Falling tree damages roof for second time in weeks AUBURNDALE Lightning may not strike twice, but falling trees did in one central Florida neighborhood. A large hickory tree fell onto the room of Lin Chipmans house in Auburndale during a thunderstorm on Saturday evening. Chipman says no one was injured, but she and her 92-year-old mother were shaken up by the incident. The Ledger of Lakeland reports a large tree limb fell onto the roof during a severe storm in July, leaving a big hole. Repairs to that damage had just been completed when Saturdays storm blew through. The tree was still resting on Chipmans house Monday afternoon. It has already caused some structural damage. She plans to have the tree removed on Tuesday at a cost of about $5,000.Water park employee trapped underwater ORLANDO An employee at the Orlando water park Wet-n-Wild has been seriously injured after he was trapped underwater while cleaning a pool. Orlando police say the employee was cleaning the pool Tuesday morning when he was caught underwater. Another employee was able to pull him from the water. Authorities did not say how long he was underwater. Emergency officials performed CPR. The unidentified employee is hospitalized in critical but stable condition.6th person sentenced in $7M loan fraud scheme WEST PALM BEACH A sixth person has been sent to prison for his role in a Florida-based $7 million loan fraud scheme that targeted distressed homeowners across the country.

The ceremonys emotional high point came with Billy Crystals restrained and graceful remembrance of Robin Williams, who was found dead Aug. 11, an apparent suicide. He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him, Crystal said of Williams at the conclusion of a tribute to industry members who died within the past 12 months. Robin Williams, what a concept. ABCs Modern Family won a fifth best comedy series Emmy, tying the record set by Frasier, while the final season of AMCs Breaking Bad captured the top drama award and a trio of acting honors for its stars. Netflixs freshman Orange Is the New Black, which competed for best comedy series despite its dark prison setting, failed to sway Emmy voters, as did Netflixs sophomore series House of Cards. Bryan Cranston was honored as best actor in a drama for Breaking Bad, proving that True Detective nominee Matthew McConaugheys movie-star appeal couldnt conquer all. I have gratitude for everything that has happened, Cranston said. His victory ties him with four-time best drama actor champ Dennis Franz. Cranstons co-stars Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn were honored in categories for best drama supporting acting he for the third time and she for the second straight year and the series won its second consecutive best drama award. Thank you for this wonderful farewell to our show, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said of the series about a teacher-turned-drug kingpin that ended with a bang. A broadcast win was scored by ABCs The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies, honored as best lead actress in a drama series. What a wonderful time for women on television, Margulies said. McConaughey was the object of too-handsome jokes by presenter Jimmy Kimmel and adoration by winner Gail Mancuso, honored as best director for an episode of Modern Family. It was one of the better gags of the night. If you dont mind, Matthew McConaughey, Im gonna make eye contact with you right now, she said from the stage, making good by holding the actors gaze for much of her speech. The ceremony honoring the best of TV wasnt shy about playing the movie-star card. Six minutes to Woody Harrelson flashed on screen during Colin Buckseys acceptance speech for best miniseries direction for Fargo. Harrelson and his True Detective co-star were given time to banter before announcing that Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock: His Last Vow was the winner of the best miniseries actor award.
Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014 3A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com George Ward secured another term in office Tuesday night by handily defeating political upstart Ricky Jernigan. Ward claimed the Lake City District 14 council seat by collecting 264 votes, 70.2 percent of the vote. Jernigan collected 112 votes, 29.7 percent of the vote. Election results were unofficial as of Tuesday night. Im pleased with the election results, Ward said Tuesday night. Ward garnered 122 votes during early voting, enough to win outright. Jernigan col lected 47 votes during early voting period. The race marked the first time Ward has had to face opposition for the District 14 seat. Ward was initial ly appointed when a former councilman resigned and hes never had opposition in an election campaign until this year. Ward has served one year of an unexpired term and three full terms and this years election marked the first time hes every had to get out and campaign. It makes me appreciate what everybody else has done, he said. Its gratifying, very gratifying to man a cam paign and actually win and Ive enjoyed the process. The win will allow Ward to serve his fourth full term as a city councilman. I want to thank my sup porters and my wife, Joan, for standing by me through all this, he said. Its not easy on the spouse... I appre ciate everybody that voted for me and everybody in my district. Im going to work hard to do a good job for them. On the same day Shining Star was denied a waiver, a retired Columbia County school teach er, Bernice D. Presley, sent the district a let ter stating that she and other members of the community want ed to keep the school open under a new charter, new name and new administra tion. The teachers and students would stay the same. She wrote in her letter that the new school, which would be called the Alfonso Levy Charter School, would use Belmont Academys charter application, which has already been approved by the school district. However, the school would still put a focus on arts education. Natale said the groups intent is to get the new school up and running before the end of the 90-day ter mination process. But he said after the meet ing that hes not sure if thats possible. School board attor ney Guy Norris said after the meeting that hes never heard a charter get approved in 90 days. He said he doesnt believe its possible because he doesnt think the Florida Department of Education can approve a charter that quickly. Norris said if the board does waive the Aug. 1 deadline, the charter could get approved for the 2015-16 school year. If it doesnt, he said the charter application would simply be an early submission for the 2016-17 school year. In the meantime, district officials will begin meeting with Shining Star adminis trators to determine when the schools last day will be. District Director of purchasing Mike Null said district officials are meeting with school adminis trators today to set up meetings to pick the date for the schools last day. At Tuesdays meet ing, school board mem bers Steve Nelson, Linard Johnson and Stephanie Finnell said they will support the new charter school as best they can. If you guys can put together a good appli cation, were going to support you. We want you to be suc cessful, Nelson said. I can assure you if you bring it to us, and its the right thing for the kids, well support you. School board mem ber Dana Brady-Giddens said she wishes the group good luck in its appli cation and said that the board will follow state laws as it makes future decisions. When you bring an application to us, were going to be look ing out for the best interest of your stu dents and the district, she said. And there is certain requirements that need to be fol lowed and those will be followed in this case as well just as we followed them tonight in our vote. CHARTERContinued From 1A By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com Steve Nelson was reelect ed for Columbia County school board District 3, beating out Edgar Reggie Clauser III with 85.84 percent of the vote. Nelson said he feels hon ored to be serving a fourth term on the board. Im just humbled, he said. I had a good feeling during the election, but to win by this percentage is humbling. Nelson received 1,685 votes while Clauser got 278. Nelson celebrated his win at a friends house with his family and supporters. In his next term, he said he hopes to continue work ing on efforts to get admin istrators to be more account able to the board. Nelson also plans to continue work ing on providing profession planning, which allows expe rienced administrators to mentor new administrators. He said he has already talk ed to retired Columbia coun ty administrators who would be willing to come back part time to do this. Nelson said hes not quite sure what he expects his next term to be like, but he does hope to help the board return to times of financial prosperity.

R eal bravery is knowing that youre risking your life for a worthy cause but doing it anyway. Soldiers and police officers often do that. As two global stories the Ebola outbreak and the Middle East conflicts should remind us, so do reporters and doctors. James Foley, a freelance journalist, knew he was going into harms way when he went to Syria to help tell that story. He disappeared in November 2012 and became the second Western reporter killed by Islamic extremists. He was behead-ed by a militant with the Islamic State, which posted a horrific video last week. Listening to his parents talk of their pride for him and his work, you had to grieve with them. Foleys executioner said he was being killed in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes that have stalled the bru-tal groups advance. Earlier, how-ever, Islamic State representatives were reportedly seeking a $132 million payment for his release. The U.S. government, unlike some in Europe, is rightly refusing to pay ransoms to terrorist groups because that only encourages more kidnap-pings and helps finance their opera-tions. U.S. special forces attempted to rescue him and other Americans held captive in Syria last month, but they had been moved. As of late last week, 32 journalists have been killed because of their work or while on assignment, including 14 in a military conflict, says the Committee to Protect Journalists. That follows 70 last year, including 25 on a battlefield. Doctors, meanwhile, are fighting a war against the largest Ebola outbreak in recorded history. The death toll in West Africa has topped 1,200, but the World Health Organization says the true number may be vastly higher. Health workers from the U.S. and Europe know the dangers, but theyre going to West Africa anyway. To heal their patients, they have to get close to the highly contagious, deadly virus. Even with the best of precautions, they sometimes get infected. Theyre also having to combat fear and threats from local residents, who blame them for the spread of the virus. Yet, these volunteers from Doctors Without Borders and other humanitarian groups are badly needed because these nations had very few doctors even before this plague, and dozens of health workers have been among the victims. Last week, however, there was the nearly miraculous sight of Kent Brantly walking out of an Atlanta hospital. The Texas doctor had been infected in Liberia, where he had gone on a mission with Samaritans Purse. It took an emergency airlift, the best possible treatment for near-ly three weeks and an experimental drug for him to recover. Like many doctors and, yes, reporters Brantly sees his work not just as a profession, but as a calling. They are so drawn, in fact, that they are willing to put their lives on the line. We ought to be humbled by that courage.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org A n effective small-town police chief does more than just keep the peace. He or she knows the community and works to serve its needs. Thats whats happening right now in Live Oak, a town heartbroken over the loss of a 9-year-old autistic boy who wandered off from his home earlier this month and drowned. LOPD Chief Buddy Williams has set out to help reduce the odds of such tragedy repeating itself. Williams, with the aid of our own state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, is working to secure funding in rural areas for GPS devices that can keep track of special-needs youngsters when they wander from home which, research shows, they are prone to do. The devices could give rescuers a fighting chance at locating the lost youngsters before the worst befalls them. Theres no way to know if such a device would have saved young Leo Walker, but it may be the best shot we have to save other childrens lives later on. The loss of little Leo hit especially hard for Williams, himself the father of a special-needs child. But the heartbreak spread far beyond the Live Oak city lim-its. Readers throughout the Suwannee River Valley and beyond have expressed their grief as well. The response will require a concerted effort on all our parts. Thats where Porter comes in.Our state representative has proven skillful at mustering scarce resources in times of real need, and this is one of them. Williams and Porter are set to meet Sept. 4 at the police station in Live Oak. The meeting is open to the public and all are invited to attend, especially those who care for these kids daily and know first-hand that even blinking can be long enough for danger to find them. Maybe just maybe something good can be born out of the awful events of mid-August in Live Oak.Out of tragedy, hope Police shootings: Does size matter?W hen I first started working with the Public Defenders Office back in the early 70s, I once heard an old-time sheriff lamenting that law enforcement had been ruined by that Miranda decision. I immedi-ately thought What a fossil! It seems that our elders are forever lamenting how things were back in the day when they had to walk to school uphill barefooted in the snow. When I heard the sheriffs lament, I immediately made a vow that I would never act like him. I am afraid that I am about to break that vow, because I am going to talk about how things used to be. I will qualify my remarks (and try to avoid sounding like a fossil) by stating emphatically that the good old days werent all that good, and that law enforcement is light years ahead of what it was when I was a young whippersnapper. But I also think that looking to the past can help us learn lessons that are appli-cable to the present day. Neil Kirkman, the first director of the Florida Highway Patrol, is supposed to have had a hiring policy for troopers which required recruits to be over six feet tall and not encumbered by excess body fat. I dont know if Kirkman truly had such a policy, but I do know that when I was a boy, FHP troopers were all tall and athletic. When I first started working as an assistant public defender, there was a trooper in our circuit who sup-posedly was ordered to lose weight or be fired. The trouble was, he wasnt fat. He lifted weights, and he had massive muscles. He saved his job without having to lose weight by getting his doctor to write a let-ter to Tallahassee certifying that he was not fat, he was just extremely muscular. It seems that back in the 50s, 60s, and early 70s almost all law enforcement officers were big men who carried barbaric weapons such as nightsticks and slapjacks. Arrestees usually cooperated. Those who didnt were subdued without being shot, Tasered, or peppersprayed. A big, muscular officer who is obviously armed with a non-lethal impact weapon commands compliance. In the mid-70s officers began to shrink as hiring practices were made less discriminatory. Im in favor of non-discrimination, but I think sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, as when you hire a 52 120 pound applicant because you dont want to discrimi-nate. I never did a scientific study of police shootings during my career, but I recall a number which I felt could have been avoided if the officer involved had been a little larger and more muscular. I do vividly recall one shooting in which the officer, a small man, said he had no choice but to fire his weapon at his physically much larger assailant. I tended to agree that if he hadnt fired, he would have gotten a severe beating at the least and may very well have suf-fered death or great bodily harm. I also thought that the situation might well have been avoided and the arrestee might still be alive if the officer had only been a bigger, more muscular man. It is improper for arrestees to factor in the size and fitness of an officer when deciding whether to violently resist, but they do. I recall a rather small officer telling me about an arrest he made in a mur-der case. He said that the suspects brothers, all big men, became so belligerent that he feared they were going to attack him. Just in the nick of time, a huge officer (who coincidentally had a reputa-tion for being able to handle him-self in a scuffle) arrived on the scene. The brothers immediately lost all their fight when he got out of his patrol car and told them that theyd better settle down. The pictures I have seen from Ferguson suggest that Michael Brown was huge (6-plus, 250-plus lbs.), while Darren Wilson was rather small. I havent seen any vital statistics on Wilson, but from the photos I estimate his size to be around 59, 160 lbs. Lets perform a thought experiment. What might have happened if Michael Brown had been confronted by an officer with the proportions of one of Neil Kirkmans FHP troopers? What if the officer had been armed with a slapjack? Might Brown still be alive if he had confronted a more physi-cally formidable officer? Q Sacramento Bee Doctors, reporters on the front lines Bob Dekle Q George R.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com Computer glitches, voters going to the wrong precincts and low voter turnout marked Tuesdays local primary elec tion. A few computer glitch es slowed election results Tuesday night, but by 8:44 p.m. all the results were in. I wanted the precincts to come in a little bit faster, said Liz P. Horne, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections. I thought we were a little slow on that, but we just had some (machines) that couldnt modem back in, so (poll workers) had to bring them back in and that made them a little bit slower, but thats not unusual. Horne also said she was disappointed in the 24.92 percent voter turnout rate. There are 35,149 registered voters in Columbia County and only 8,758 cast ballots in the election. Horne was hoping for at least 29 percent voter turnout. On election day, I was a little disappointed in the turnout because I would have liked to have had more vot ers turnout, she said. We didnt even make 9,000 vot ers in nine days and thats really sad. Im thankful for the ones that turned out, we worked had to get everything ready. It costs money, time and energy to get an election going and then to not have the public show up and cast a ballot gets a little disappoint ing. Horne also noted that sev eral people showed up to vote at the supervisor of elections office on Tuesday, rather than their voting precinct. Everybody kept thinking we were still in early voting, so we had a lot of people thinking they could come in and early vote, she said, esti mating 15 20 people had to be redirected to their vot ing precinct. There were a lot of people at the wrong precinct here today thinking they could come in and vote so we had to send a lot of peo ple out to their precinct. That was the biggest problem for us here and getting people to the right precinct. Horne said hopefully the election results will be final ized by noon Friday and the City of Lake City will make their election results official at noon today.

I have Hashimotos and dont do well on Armour. Can you tell me what is best for me? J.C., Chicago, Illinois Answer: As a pharmacist, I know about all the medications for thyroid disease, but as an individual, I insist you ask your practitioner whats best for you. Ive learned that people with Hashimotos have a peculiar sensitivity (at times) to porcine derived medications known Natural Dessicated Thyroid or NDT. Your Armour medication is in the NDT class. NDT drugs are popular prescription medications that contain a combination of T4 and T3 that is porcine (pig) derived, then purified. First the advantages of NDT drugs: 1. NDT drugs provide your body with a good match to your own human thyroid hormone, despite being derived from pig glands. 2. NDT drugs have been around for a long time, and have a relatively safe track record. 3. The price is very affordable for a month supply. Here are a few disadvantages of NDT drugs: 1. Some people develop an allergy to it, or they dont want an animal-derived product. 2. This is a biggie for people with Hashimotos, your immune system may mistake the added thyroid glandular you are getting from the drug and make more antibodies to your thyroid. For some of you, your immune cells cannot distinguish between pork-derived thyroid gland and your own thyroid gland, so the NDT drugs trigger your immune system. We are talking about auto-immune thyroid disease, not regular hypothyroidism. You would know because your TPO (thyroid peroxidase) TG (thyroglobulin) antibodies would increase, and symptoms would flare. This reaction does not happen to everyone but if you do react, then one easy alternative would be to switch to a synthetic drug, such as levothyroxine. This is a synthetic T4 drug that matches your own thyroxine hormone, and because its not glandular, it might mean fewer antibodies. Removing grains, soy and dairy can reduce antibodies, so can taking selenium. As for levothyroxine, one disadvantage that is that some of you may not fully activate the medicine into T3 thyroid hormone, so symptoms persist. This poor peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 is what I call being thyroid sick and you can activate better if you take certain natural herbs, probiotics and vitamins. I cover it all in Thyroid Healthy book. Levothyroxine is usually started at 50 mcg (micrograms) per day, and titrated up within a few weeks to higher doses. Thyroid medicine is always taken in the morning on an empty stomach. Your physician should be monitoring free T3 and T4 during this process. If the T4 goes up to high, then balancing it with T3 from Cytomel, or from Compounded T3 which comes from a compounding pharmacy can help.StatePointThe most uncomfortable afflictions are often the most embarrassing. And anorectal health issues can interfere with almost everything one does, from sitting on a bus to enjoying a meal out with friends. If you suffer from an uncomfortable and at times, painful condition like hemorrhoids, youre not alone. In fact, millions of Americans -particularly those between the ages of 20 and 50 -are affected by hemorrhoids. Additionally, other anorectal disorders can have similar symptoms. So ditch the embarrassment and use this knowledge to feel empowered to discuss your issue with your doctor. He or she can diagnose the issue properly and offer you tips for relief. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do to address the problem on your own. Change your exercise routine: While regular physical activity can improve your cardiovascular health and help you to maintain a healthy weight, certain types of activities can cause hemorrhoids. Straining from weight lifting, for instance, may cause the veins near the anus and rectum to become swollen, eventually leading to this condition. Cycling may also exacerbate the issue. Talk to your doctor about exercises that are safe for you. Dont rush in the bathroom: Rushing and pushing can cause excessive straining and increase pressure on rectal veins. When you are done, dont linger. Sitting on the toilet longer than necessary can aggravate your discomfort. Lose weight: Excess weight in your abdomen can increase your chances of developing hemorrhoids. Seek relief: You dont necessarily need a prescription to relieve the pain, itching and burning associated with hemorrhoids and other anorectal disorders. If your doctor confirms you have hemorrhoids, look for an over-the-counter topical, local anesthetic at your drugstore, such as RectiCare Anorectal Cream, which contains the highest lidocaine strength available without a prescription. It works quickly to help soothe discomfort. In addition, each tube comes with a supply of finger cots, little covers that fit over the finger, to promote hygienic application. Visit www.RectiCare. com for more information. New diet: If your hemorrhoids are caused by constipation, try adding more fiber to your diet to get to the root of the problem. And remember to drink plenty of water alongside any meal. Whether youre walking down the drugstore aisle or talking with your doctor, seek the relief you need without embarrassment. Anorectal problems are more common than you think.Dont be shy with your doctor STATEPOINTYour doctor cant help you solve a problem until he knows about it. Dont be shy in discuss ing embarrassing issues. Its part of their job.

Emily Lawsonelawson@lakecityreporter.com Emily Lawson is the Associate Editor of the Lake City Reporter.Exploring all of North FloridaSince I last told you about my husbands and my adventures on our newly-purchased bikes, weve had a week full of many more. We bought street not mountain bikes and on the first minor off-roading we did, my tire popped. Can you believe the luck? We took it to a bike shop and got a quick and inexpensive repair, plus some advice about where and when we should and shouldnt try to ride our bikes on trails, and before you knew it we were back on the road for a 23-mile journey. Still being relatively new to the area (having just spent 1/24 of my life here in North Florida), Im still enjoying the opportunity we have to explore the area. And exploring all of North Florida is exactly what weve done, weather included. When we were recently several miles away from home, the skies opened up and we were poured on. But thats just a day in the life, isnt it? Looking forward to many more miles and hopefully many more sunny days.
By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFort White Highs volleyball team opened the sea-son with a victory at home over Hamilton County High. The Lady Indians won 25-21, 25-15, 25-18. Hamilton County already had a match under its belt, a win over Taylor County High. The teams battled to a 10-10 tie after five rotations in the first game. Hamilton Countys Hannah Altman then served for four points and Fort White coach Becky Larson called a time out to settle her team. It worked for a side-out and Fort White began its comeback. Rykia Jackson served for three points, the third one an ace to draw the Lady Indians even at 16-16. Hamilton County coach Hannah Perez tried her own time out, but it didnt pan out. The Trojans scored just one point on serve down the stretch. Fort White got service points from Ashley Cason and Arianna House, then Beth Morgan added two service points to get the Lady Indians close. After a side out, Jordan Waller served the winning point. Cason started the second game with her jump serves and Cheyenne Patterson had a block for the first point. At 3-3 Fort White got a side out and Morgan served for three points. After an exchange of serves, Waller stepped up and served five points with two aces. Bailey Robison served a point on a kill by House. Cason and Patterson each served three points down the stretch. Fort White had control of game three early, but Hamilton County pulled ahead behind five service points from Altman. A Larson time out worked again, as Fort White took control. Jackson had two service points, and both Cason and Morgan served three points with Morgan getting the game-winner. We were setting and hitting really good, Larson said. We need to work on filling the holes. I was happy with our communi-cation. They worked as a team and we hope to build on that the next game. House had seven kills to lead Fort White. Jackson had five kills and Patterson had three. Cason led in service points with 11, followed by Morgan with nine, and Waller with eight. Fort Whites junior varsity won 25-18, 25-15. The next match is a district contest against Interlachen High at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Tigers travel to Gainesville on ThursdayBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWith a short week heading into the first official game of the sea-son, Columbia High head coach Brian Allen has one thing on his mind turnovers. After turnovers plagued the Tigers in the first half of a 35-34 kickoff classic win against West Orange, Allen said Columbia must protect the ball in order to win on the road against Gainesville High. The Tigers travel to Gainesville High at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday for the first official game of the season. Allen is 1-2 against Gainesville. In order to even the score, Allen knows the Tigers must eliminate mistakes. Turnovers are a thing that I look at and we absolutely have to be better, Allen said. We looked at the film and there are mistakes. Theres a couple of blocks we should have made and we would have scored two more touch-downs in the first half. The Tigers will break in a new starter after Davin Schuck led the 26-point rally against West Orange on Friday. Allen said that both quarterbacks will play, but that Schuck earned the right to start this week. Davin is slated as the starter and its hard not to start him after he played well last week, Allen said. He may be one that can come off the bench, but can he start a game. On the same token, can Jake Thomas come in after the game is started and he has had time to settle and take over. This is Davins opportunity to come in and start after leading us from 26 down and its impressive that he was able to do that without getting rattled. Allen said Schuck didnt allow the moment to become too big. He came in, executed plays, and didnt look at the score, Allen said. He did his job. Of course, his job was made easier with Lonnie Underwood in the backfield. Underwood impressed with four touchdowns in the kick-off classic to help lead the comeback. Allen expects much of the same from his senior leader when the game counts. I expect him to be what he has been week in and week out, Allen said. Lonnie is as good as it gets, and I think he played as well as hes always played. He showed some speed and quickness on those runs and carried the ball close to 30 times. Allen said he wont be scared to utilize that game plan again against the Hurricanes. Were not going to keep him on a pitch count, Allen said. We want to keep him fresh, but Im not going to limit him. Im not going to count how many runs hes at.

Defense rules at Florida, at least under MuschampBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Whether hes screaming from the sideline or punch-ing a white board in the locker room, Floridas Will Muschamp knows defense. Its what he played.Its what he coached.Its what the Gators have done best during his tenure. Often overshadowed by a woeful offense, Floridas defense has set a pretty high standard during Muschamps first three seasons in Gainesville. The Gators have ranked no lower than eighth nation-ally in total defense, giving up less than 300 yards a game with Muschamp in charge. And despite losing the teams best pass rusher and several starters in the sec-ondary, Florida expects to be defensively stout again this season. Absolutely, Muschamp said last week. Well play well. ... We have the key ingredients of what you want, in my opinion. Now we got to go do it. Talk is cheap. The Gators have nothing to boast about after last season. They lost their final seven games, missed a bowl game and ended up with their first losing record since 1979. Little went right, not even on defense. Florida was gouged at times, giving up 500 yards in a loss at Missouri, allow-ing 429 yards rushing in a shocking home defeat to lower-division Georgia Southern and then surren-dering 456 yards in a sea-son-ending setback against in-state rival and eventual national champion Florida State. It was uncharacteristic for a unit that had kept Florida in several games through-out the season. But key injuries the Gators lost defensive end Dominique Easley in xxx played a factor. So did a lack of confidence in the teams much-maligned offense, which had personnel and coaching issues that even-tually carried over to the other side of the ball. We had some individualism on the team last year, linebacker Mike Taylor said. Last year it was more, I got me. I got this. This year, its more, We, us, team. Its not I. Its more team. Were more together. The Gators get their first chance to show 2013 was a fluke Saturday when they open the season against Idaho, which has just four wins over the last three seasons. Muschamp has repeatedly expressed confidence that his team will make a quick turnaround, much like fellow Southeastern Conference teams Auburn and Missouri did last season. Although Muschamp expects the offense to be markedly better under new coordinator Kurt Roper, hes equally convinced the defense will return to form. The unit lost Easley, who turned pro after a sea-son-ending knee injury in September, and defensive backs Loucheiz Purifoy, Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins. But the Gators have two budding stars in defen-sive end Dante Fowler Jr. and cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III. Fowler, a 6-foot-3, 260pound junior from St. Petersburg, has just six sacks in two seasons. Hes been the teams best pass rusher in camp, but whether he has a breakout year could depend on the guys around him. After all, if fellow starting linemen Jonathan Bullard, Leon Orr and Darious Cummings arent disruptive, opponents surely will chip and double Fowler or roll quarterbacks away from his side. Thats something weve talked about and know it could happen, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. We do enough up front to move Dante around and thats a hard thing to do because he doesnt play in one spot.

The Street Stock Division was the first group to hit the speed-way. Randy Moody grabbed the early lead before yielding to Tyler Sistrunk. Sistrunk held the lead until lap 11. A hard-charging Sean Monaghan took the lead from there and pulled away for his second con-secutive win. Jerry Fortner finished second with Moody coming home third. Next up was the Limited Modified Division and Nevin Gainey took the lead at the drop of the green flag. David Crews chased Gainey through the early stages of the race. Shane Taylor, who was look-ing for his third consecutive win, moved to second with four laps remaining but Gainey held him off for the win. Taylor finished second to extend his points lead, and Crews was third. The Sportsman Division was next Wayne ONeal took command early, but Derek Crawford moved to the point on lap three. His lead would be short-lived as Nevin Gainey was in hot pursuit for a second win on the evening. A restart on lap seven saw Gainey power his machine to the top groove for a lead he would not relinquish. Crawford held on for second with ONeal claiming third. The 2014 season in the Pure Stock Division has been dominat-ed by Darrell Roberts. This night, Ethan Butts took command early and paced the field for the first nine laps in his bid for his first career victory. But the hard-charg-ing Roberts would take the lead on lap 10 and cruise home for another win. Butts held on for second with Dylan Hilliard placing third. The Box Stock feature fell victim to rain and will be added to the Sept. 13 program. Racing returns on Sept. 6th with the flat track motorcycles hitting the track.

BRANDON FINLEY/ Lake City ReporterFlorida State head coach Jimbo Fisher speaks with quarter back Jameis Winston last season.Fisher emerging as a top QB coachBy KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE The foundation of Jimbo Fishers coaching philosophy began during rides home with his father after Pop Warner games. His dad would pep-per him in the car with a single question: Why? John Fisher would ask the young quarterback why did he make a certain throw? Why didnt he make different decisions? The talks continued through high school, and three decades later Florida States Fisher has used those father-son bond-ing moments to arguably become the pre-eminent quarterback coach in col-lege football. Fisher has had eight quarterbacks drafted to the NFL since 2001, works with reigning Heisman winner Jamies Winston and two of his former Seminole dis-ciples are expected to start for other major college pro-grams this year. Theres one thing I ask them: Why? Fisher said. Whyd you do that? Why did you not do that? Why was that successful? Why was that not successful? If you cant know why you did something and why you didnt, how are you going to repeat it? If you do it well, but you dont understand why you did it, when the moment comes that you have to repeat it In the game for the champion-ship, you cant do it because you never understood in the first place. Fisher, 48, lists former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore, Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden and Alabama coach Nick Saban as major influences, but it was his father who first pep-pered him with the ques-tion, Why? Fisher always played quarterback through col-lege at Salem College and Samford, but was never the most athletic. His father constantly questioned Fisher with the goal being to outthink other players. The lessons stuck.Fisher helped turn JaMarcus Russell into the first overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft when he was offensive coordinator at LSU. Former Tiger Matt Flynn is the backup in Green Bay. Former FSU quarter-back Christian Ponder was the No. 12 overall pick in 2011. E.J. Manuel was the first quarterback taken in the 2013 draft. Winston is a leading candidate to win his second Heisman tro-phy. Florida State transfers Clint Trickett and Jacob Coker are likely to start at West Virginia and Alabama, respectively. Fisher is the only head coach in college football that has had three quar-terbacks drafted in the first round since 2007, accord-ing to STATS LLC. I think a combination of things makes him really, really successful, said Tommy Bowden, who coached with Fisher at Auburn. One, he played the position. Hes an over-achiever. Hes extremely confident. Hes a hard-nosed guy, coming from that coal-min-ing background with his father. ... He doesnt baby those guys. Winston, Manuel and Ponder credit their success to how Fisher trains QBs mentally. Fisher drills technique and fundamentals, but he holds quarterbacks accountable for everything in the offense.
4B WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014 ADVICE & COMICS LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: Five years ago, my husband got drunk and physically attacked me in front of his family. It was horrible. I was in shock, and our rela tionship never recovered. The next four years were a series of court vis its for custody of our child and eventually a divorce. Last year, his mother began requesting visits with our son. I was happy about it because I have tried to be accommodating to my ex and his family regarding our son. Finally, late last year, I called my ex to ask if we could sit down and dis cuss our son (something we had never done). We have met twice during the last two weeks, and each time had long conversa tions about everything. (Our son, our past, our relationship.) Many mis conceptions were cleared up, and its obvious that we both have made many necessary changes within ourselves. Now Im confused about what comes next. Speaking with him has brought back so many feelings. Prior to the attack, our stress levels had been high and our communication was terri ble, but there had been no physical violence. Im not sure if this is the universe giving us an opportunity to give the family we started another chance. Should we start over? WAVERING IN NEW YORK DEAR WAVERING: What comes next might be that you and your ex can become good friends and parent your son in a con genial, cooperative fashion. What comes next might be that you rekindle your romance. Or it might be that you get back together and he assaults you again. If your ex has sought help for his drinking and anger management issues, a reconciliation could work out beautifully. However, if he hasnt, I certainly wouldnt recommend it. Sometimes people can care deeply about each other, but shouldnt be married. DEAR ABBY: My 95-year-old mom feels that her age entitles her to speak without a filter, and she has become totally intolerant and critical. She is mentally sharp and highly intelligent, which makes her nasty com ments even more hurtful to family and friends. Standing up to her isnt an option because of her age and she knows it. She doesnt seem to recognize how damaging her attitude has become to those who love her. If you could print this and offer some advice, she might recognize her self. A LOVING SON DEAR LOVING SON: The fact that someone has celebrated 95 birthdays does not give the person license to be deliber ately unkind to others. Negativity is an unat tractive trait, regardless of how old you are. People who deliberately say hurt ful things invariably find the circle of those who want to be around them shrinking. My advice to your mother would be, before opening her mouth, ask herself whether what she has to say is true, helpful and KIND. And if it isnt all THREE, she should rephrase her comment or not say it at all. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a good look at your career path. A practical change of plans will help you boost your confidence and your reputation. An opportunity to network will play in your favor. Put love and romance high on your list. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do what makes you happy. Get involved in an event or attend a trade show or conference, and you will expand your knowledge and get some worthwhile information that will help you make an important decision. Progressive action will pay off. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be careful when it comes to making promis es. If you arent going to be able to follow through, you will jeopardize your reputation. Honesty will be a factor when dealing with someone who wants some thing from you. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Bide your time and make practical plans that you are confident will work out well for you. Use your imagination and creative insight to capture interest. Dont feel you have to make an impulsive move because someone puts pressure on you. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Being adaptable and willing to compromise will help you win favors and get your way in the end. Working hard to satisfy everyone around you will pay off. Step up your game and do whatever it takes to get ahead professionally. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Efficiency will be your strength and will help ensure that you accom plish what you set out to do while giving others a chance to see you in action. You can expect to be offered interesting propos als that will lead to future gains. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your genuine desire to help and to make a dif ference to your community, a cause or a friend will add to your popularity. A change in your current status or within an import ant relationship must be allowed to unfold naturally. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Express your thoughts and desires openly. Once you let others know what you want, you will be able to separate those willing to help from those who are not in a posi tion to do so. Problems will result if you make a drastic personal change. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep life simple, truthful and posi tive. An optimistic approach to change followed by hands-on hard work will help you bring about a hap pier and healthier lifestyle. Romance is on the rise. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont be daunted by the changes going on around you or by what others do. Focus on your life and the things that will bring you greater security. Money, legal and medical issues dealt with tenaciously will turn out favorably. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take advan tage of any opportunities that comes your way. Focus on personal improvements, love, romance and making professional decisions that will help you reach your financial goals. Dont let a partnership hold you back or stifle your imagination. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Selfdeception can lead you down a slippery path. Look at whatever you are dealing with realistically. You can make progress, but only if your vision is clear. Try to make the best choices for the right reasons. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Couple weighs reconciliation five years after violent split Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
