Emergency Management Director Shayne Morgan said 4-7 inches of rain fell on the county Friday evening through Saturday morning, but some areas may have had more. On Saturday morning Morgan was advising local residents to stay put if possible. If they can avoid going out, I would encourage them not to, he said. A flash flood warning was issued around 6 a.m. Saturday but as showers eased was replaced by the less serious flash flood watch, which was in effect until midnight. Birdy Place and Bishop Road from SR 47 to King Street were closed Saturday due to flooding, Morgan said. County Engineer Chad Williams said he also received reports of flooding in WesterWood subdivision. Williams said calls started coming in about 5 a.m. Saturday as the water began to rise. However, he said, To my knowledge, weve had to evacuate no one. Still, the rain sent emergency crews scrambling to keep floodwaters contained. County workers pumped water from the roadside at SW Wester Drive, Williams said. As showers slowed to a drizzle Saturday, officials said they hoped to have seen the worst of it at least for now. However, the forecast calls for more rain through at least Monday, with a 60 percent chance of showers today and tomorrow.

Gabriel Mykal Angelus Cox was a child who touched the lives of everyone he met. More than 10 people have told Jennifer and her husband Travis Cox that Gabe led them to faith. Jennifer and Travis arent even sure what exactly it was about Gabe that did that, but people were definitely drawn to him. He was gravitational, is the only word I can think of, Travis said. He could walk in the room, and I dont care what anybody was doing, all attention came to him.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Chief suspended over ticket quotas resigns WALDO O ne of the two Waldo police chiefs suspended over the past month due to allegations of illegal ticket quotas has resigned. The north Florida town this week agreed to allow the Alachua County Sheriffs Office to provide security. Waldo Police Chief Michael Szabo was suspended Aug. 12 after a state inves tigation into the alleged quotas. Szabo resigned Friday evening. Szabos interim replacement was suspended after a group of officers com plained at a city council meeting about the illegal ticket quotas. City Manager Kim Worley says the agreement with the sheriffs office gives her time to find a permanent replacement who does not currently work for the police department. State authorities also are investigating the ticket quota and other alleged miscon duct by Szabo. 1 dead after deputy-involved shooting ST. AUGUSTINE Two St. Johns County Sheriffs Office deputies are on administrative leave after the fatal shooting of a suspect at a St. Augustine home. Sheriffs Office spokesman Kevin Kelshaw says the deputies were respond ing to a domestic disturbance early Saturday. Kelshaw says shots had been fired at the home, and a female resident told deputies that Aaron Ray had possibly barricaded himself inside. Kelshaw tells area newspapers that while establishing a perimeter, deputies encountered Ray, who refused to drop his weapon. The deputies fired at Ray, who died at the scene. Neither deputy was injured. They were placed on administrative leave, which is standard practice after an offi cer-involved shooting. The shooting remains under investiga tion. Panhandle man gets 3 life terms for 2013 slaying PANAMA CITY A man has been sentenced to three consecutive life terms in prison after pleading guilty to tortur ing an elderly Florida Panhandle man to death. David Ian Challender pleaded guilty Friday to charges of first-degree murder, armed burglary and armed robbery in the April 2013 death of 90-year-old Wallace Scott of Lynn Haven. Authorities said Challender and his cousin Kevin Gene Jeffries killed Scott while trying to get his ATM card pin. Jeffries was convicted in July of first-de gree murder, armed burglary and armed robbery. The News Herald reports that the Bay County jury also recommended the death penalty. A judge will decide Jeffries sentence later this year. Challender and another Bay County inmate briefly escaped from jail in July, but he was caught the same day. DUI charges dropped in 2013 crash that killed 5 WEST PALM BEACH Prosecutors have dropped DUI manslaughter charges against a Florida driver in a 2013 crash that killed five people, including three teenagers. Jabari Kemp still faces five counts of vehicular manslaughter in the crash just off an Interstate 95 exit ramp in Riviera Beach. Prosecutors dropped the other charges Friday after defense attorneys and state experts questioned the validity of samples of Kemps blood taken hours after the crash.

I get to park wherever I want, said Murray, appearing for a Q&A following a screening of Ghostbusters. Friday was officially dubbed Bill Murray Day by the festival, which screened a marathon of Murray classics (Stripes and Groundhog Day, along with Ghostbusters) ahead of the pre miere of Murrays latest, the upcoming next-door neighbor comedy St. Vincent. Fans turned out outfitted in costumes of beloved Murray characters, from his ocean explorer Steve Zissou to his Army cadet from Stripes. They were all topped by a baby dressed as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. Said Murray: That is one good-looking baby. Many had wondered about the extent of Murrays participation in his own day. But he, clad in red pants and a blue plaid shirt, appeared with Ivan Reitman (who direct ed him in Ghostbusters and Stripes) and writer-producer Mitch Glazer (screenwriter of Scrooged) following Ghostbusters.

When a loud crowd still chatted at the Plaza Hotel where Gaga was performing jazz tunes Friday night, she stopped in the middle of her second song because of the noise. Will you shut up? Were playing some jazz, she told the crowd of a few hundred in New York City. Goddamn rich people. Gaga sang at the New York Fashion Week party by Harpers Bazaar, where attendees included Donatella Versace, Liberty Ross, Brooke Shields and R&B singers Maxwell and Miguel. The 28-year-old pop star sang songs from her collaborative jazz album with Tony Bennett called Cheek to Cheek, to be released Sept. 23. She shut up the crowd at moments when she hit impres sive high notes. Gaga sported short blond hair and a black leather dress she said her sister cre ated for her.

From staff reportsThe Lake City Reporters Punt for a Pickup contest was postponed Friday night due to inclement weather. The contest will resume at the Columbia High Tigers next home football game, Sept. 26, when one lucky fan will get a chance to win a new 2014 Ford F-150. Incessant rain was the culprit Friday. Field conditions were just too wet, even around the grass edges of the field, to maneuver the truck and safely conduct the punt attempt. It was in everyones best interest to postpone the first kick, said Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson. Well be back at the next four home games and youll see the blue Ford truck around town in the meantime at our sponsor locations. Come out and support the Tigers and you could win this new F-150 in our Punt for a Pickup contest. For the second year in a row, one fan at each home game will have the chance to punt a football 35 yards into the bed of the pickup. If the ball goes into the back of the truck, in the air, and stays there, the lucky fan will win the truck. Rountree Moore Ford once again is a partner in the Reporters promotion. A portion of the proceeds from the contest will be donated to the CHS STRIPES total person academic program founded by CHS Principal Todd Widergren. Participants must be 18 years old to kick and other eligibility requirements apply. Stephen Jones, General Sales Manager at Rountree Moore Ford, selected a Ford F-150 STX sport package two-wheel drive truck for the contest. The truck has many options, outstanding features and upgraded wheels. The full-size four-door truck is blue with gray interior. The truck will be visible parked in front of business sponsors of the contest around Lake City during the two-month football season contest period. Football fans can check out the truck on game nights parked at the north end of Tiger Stadium. Remaining CHS home football games are scheduled for Sept. 26, Oct. 10, Oct. 31, and Nov. 7.

Lake City Reporter AT CHS HOME FOOTBALL GAMES Punt for a Pickup postponed; to resume at next home game From staff reportsThe Columbia County Sheriffs Office has investigated 44 vehicle burglaries throughout the county in the last 30 days, CCSO said. The story was the same in each case, according to a CCSO news release: the valuables were stolen from an unlocked car. Most vehicle burglaries are crimes of opportunity, CCSO spokesman Murray Smith said in the release. The thief looks for easy access and doesnt want to make much noise or draw attention. Smith offered some simple tips to protect yourself: Remove visible items from your vehicle If you leave items visible in your car, you are a target. Even with a locked vehicle you may lose a window and your valuables. Lock Up The single best defense is to lock you vehicle. Report suspicious activity If you see someone looking in cars or walking around, in and out of yards, late at night report it to law enforcement so it can be checked out. Remember, you can prevent auto burglaries by removing your valuables from your vehicle and locking them in a safe place, Smith said. Help us protect your property.

By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comFor Dana Brady-Giddens, its the people she helps that makes the work she does in the courtroom, the classroom and the school board office all worthwhile. The Columbia County school board member recently left her teaching position at Florida Gateway College for a job as Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeisters chief assistant state attorney. But when she looks back on everything shes done in her career as an attorney, teacher and most recently a school board member, knowing she has helped people is what matters most. Wanting to help others is why she ran for school board two years ago, and public service is really the foundation of every job shes had. Brady-Giddens started her career as a probation officer after graduating from Florida State University with a degree in criminal justice. But while working in the courtroom, she realized law was something she wanted to pursue. I watched court, and I thought, I like this. I can do this, she said. So Brady-Giddens enrolled in law school at the University of Florida and then began her career as an attorney working as a Third Circuit assistant state attorney. Criminal justice is interesting. Theres also something different, she said. Every day is something different, a different story. The crimes are all the same, but the stories are different, and its interesting. After eight years as an assistant state attorney, Brady-Giddens decided to give teaching a try and started teaching sixth-grade social studies at Fort White High School. At the time, the high school was supposed to be getting a criminal justice system, which she was going to be part of, but once she found out that wasnt happening, she left to take a job as a criminal defense attorney at Siegmeisters private practice. After several years there, she worked at the Department of Transportation as an eminent domain attorney for a year until she took her most recent job as a criminal justice teacher at FGC. She also taught a prosecution clinic at the University of Florida Levin College of Law with Professor Bob Dekle during the spring semester. Brady-Giddens said her goal was to give her students a love and respect for the law. I want them to have a respect for the law because I really dont think people understand the criminal justice system thoroughly sometimes, and I think not understanding it leads to a lack of respect for what we do, she said. And I think if you understand it, you have a better respect for it, and so thats what I wanted to instill in my students. Brady-Giddens wasnt looking to leave FGC either. But when Siegmeister called and offered her the position of chief assistant state attorney, she struggled -she loved her job and students at FGC, but chief assistant was a job she had wanted since she graduated from law school. I wasnt really looking for a job, but its just the opportunity came, and you take those chances when they come up, she said. Especially when its a chance to be the chief assistant state attorney. As a young assistant state attorney, this is the job you strive for, and so being here is amazing, Brady-Giddens said. Its the job of a lifetime. She and Siegmeister and are now working together for the third time in their careers. I think we make a really good team, and I have a lot of respect for Mr. Siegmeister, she said. Her new role as chief assistant includes a lot of administrative duties and dealing with personnel issues, she said. But the toughest part of the job is also what the hardest part of being a school board member is always making fair decisions, no matter how unpopular they are, she said. She said following the law when she makes decisions isnt the hard part the challenging part is getting the public to understand why she makes the decisions she does. Its difficult when people dont understand that you are required ethically to do that, Brady-Giddens said. But the challenges of being the chief assistant state attorney and a school board member dont deter her one bit. Theyre fairly all consuming for now, but if she ever felt like she had the time, she would consider working as an adjunct professor at FGC, she said. I would have an interest in maybe teaching something because I just like to do it, Brady-Giddens said. But for now, she hopes to be chief assistant state attorney for as long as possible and plans on running for reelection on the school board in 2016, she said. I shouldnt say what the future holds, but right now, thats my plan, she said.Brady-Giddens: Teacher turned prosecutor SARAH LOFTUS/Lake City ReporterDana Brady-Giddens left her teaching job at FGC to work as chief assistant state attorney.
To the Editor:I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to our hard work-ing and dedicated team of sheriffs deputies. On Sunday evening, my two daughters vehicles were parked in my front yard and their purses were stolen out of them. The sheriffs office was very quick to respond with several deputies, a detective and a police dog. My understanding is that there has been a rash of burglaries throughout Columbia County, which has kept our law enforcement officers extremely busy. So, please keep a close eye on your neighbor-hood and lets give the deputies some well deserved help.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org We have on more than one occasion chided county officials for imprudent or unwise use of what is arguably our most precious local resource citizens tax dollars. But beefing up fire coverage countywide wasnt one of them. As a result of adding more fire stations and other improvements, the countys insurance industry rating improved con-siderably, we learned Thursday. Thats of interest to anyone with fire insurance, as you ought to see real relief as a result. According to CCFD Chief David Boozer, one local womans premiums dropped about $4,600 a year. Welcome news indeed. We dont want government running our lives, but we do want it keeping us safe. And doing so in as frugal a manner as possible, while theyre at it. Lets stay focused on that theme, commissioners. Making good use of tax dollars Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITORTea party isnt the only foe of Common CoreTODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1825, the Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution, bade farewell to President John Quincy Adams at the White House. In 1892, James J. Corbett knocked out John L. Sullivan to win the world heavyweight boxing crown in New Orleans. In 1940, Nazi Germany began its eight-month blitz of Britain during World War II with the first air attack on London. In 1943, a fire at the Gulf Hotel, a rooming house in Houston, claimed 55 lives. In 1963, the National Professional Football Hall of Fame was dedicated in Canton, Ohio. In 1964, the controversial Daisy commercial, an ad for President Lyndon B. Johnsons election campaign featuring a girl plucking flower petals followed by a nuclear explosion, aired on NBC-TV. In 1968, feminists protested outside the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, N.J. In 1977, the Panama Canal treaties, calling for the U.S. to eventually turn over control of the waterway to Panama, were signed in Washington by President Jimmy Carter and Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos. To the Editor : The following is in response to the letter by Mary Beaty. There have been many students who have graduated as A students and as valedictorian of a class across the United States, an accomplishment worthy of recogni-tion. Even so, I would venture to guess the majority of them would not credit their accomplishment to being cracked on the knuckles with a wooden ruler, being lashed with a razor strap, and then being sent to bed without finishing their sup-per. Instead, they would credit hard work and dedication. As I paused to read your comments, I feel relatively certain there is no way you could know the entire story regarding the abusive treatment of our children. Likewise, there is no way you can know how much structure, guidance and disci-pline each of these children have in their homes. I cannot speak for each child, but I can tell you that in our home the children are reared in a strict environment where manners are taught and insisted upon. It is a home where both parents are very involved and where we insist on the children doing their very best. We spend a significant amount of time around the dinner table every evening eating our meals as a family unit, checking grades and discussing what is going on in the childrens lives. Because of the way we raise our children, we constantly receive compliments on how well-behaved our children are. On occasion our children will stray from the rules. They know that if corporal punishment is warranted, we will deliver. Please remember the age of the children in this classroom they were kin-dergartners. Like many parents, we teach our children not to bully, laugh at or humiliate others by calling them names, and to always keep their hands to themselves. More importantly, we teach our children to be honest and that they can tell us anything. Mrs. Rachals abusive and irresponsible behavior has taught them to do the contrary. It is not acceptable for any teacher (or other) adult to bully, humiliate, pinch or pull the hair of any child. But more important-ly, it is not acceptable to teach a child to be dishonest by bribery. Mrs. Rachals allegedly bribing the children to not tell is a very clear indicator that even she knew what she was doing was simply wrong. My parents were raised in your generation and in strict homes, Mrs. Beaty. They, like many people from your era, are also appalled by Mrs. Rachals behavior. Yes, we do live in a changed world. Fortunately, some of the changes have been for the better. As adults, it is our responsibility to discipline and guide the children in a positive manner while doing it in the spirit of love and concern for the future. For these reasons, I respectfully disagree with your position that this poor teacher is just being per-secuted for doing her job. Sarah SandsLake CitySheriffs office deserves thanksTo the Editor:Thank you for continuing to cover the very important issue of our childrens education and Common Core via your article in the Sept. 4 edition. Please continue to do so. While the article opened with mention of the letter sent by the North Central Florida Tea Party to the School Boards of Columbia and Suwannee Counties, the scope expanded to a general discussion of Common Core. I was disap-pointed that you did not point out that opposition is not limited to the tea party but rather a broad bipartisan coalition of those in opposition to Common Core. Parents are opposed. Ask the Catholic Parents against Common Core (www.facebook.com/CatholicSchoolParentsAgainstCommonCore) among others. Teachers are opposed. Ask the Badass Teacher Association (www.badassteacher.org/), not a conservative organi-zation, why they support Zypher Teachout, Democratic candidate for governor of New York. Could it be that she opposes Common Core? A majority of committewomen and men of the Florida GOP have voted to reject Common Core. Many county Republican Executive Committees including Suwannee County, have passed resolutions against Common Core. In a let-ter dated Feb. 24, the Republican Party of Florida Legislative Affairs Committee forwarded a resolution against Common Core to the party. The venerable Eagle Forum (http://www.eagleforum.org/) is opposed to Common Core. Your readers deserve to know this. Id like to follow up on an excellent point made by Sharon Higgins. Why do we elect school board members if not to lead? You quoted a chorus of members saying school funding is tied to testing and to Common Core. During recent candidate forums, candidates for school board said Im against Common Core but we have to do it for the funding. I beg to differ. If a significant number of school boards have the courage to say No, we are not going to administer the tests or implement Common Core, the state will provide the funding and students will move to the next grade and graduate from High School. We have an election coming up on Nov. 4. School board can-didates need to assure the voters they are willing to take a stand and lead.

One of the major shows this season, Raindrops, Roses & Rhymes, features three country music legends sharing the stage together in an unforgettable acoustic performance: BJ Thomas, Pam Tillis, and Collin Raye. The show will take on March 6, 2015, in the Howard Conference Center. The buzz from last years Roots and Boots concert was unanimously positive feedback, so our target No. 1 this year was to find a similar show, said Rob Chapman, coordinator of marketing, web, and graphics production. We feel like with Raindrops, Roses & Rhymes, weve hit this one out of the park. The other major show in the conference center this year will feature John Michael Montgomery. Owner of 18 top ten singles and five No. 1s, including I Can Love You Like That and Be My Baby Tonight, Montgomery will perform at FGC on January 17. If you listened to country music in the 1990s, then you definitely know John Michael Montgomery, Roberts said. Other shows include:Thursday, October 16 Adam Trent Levy Performing Arts Center Named one of the Top 10 Most Influential Youths by US News & World Report magazine, Trent is one of the hot up-and-coming magicians on the college circuit. Combining his illusions with a dash of music and comedy, hes been described as Justin Timberlake meets David Copperfield by GP4T magazine. Friday, November 7 Bellamy Brothers Levy Performing Arts Center A country music duo consisting of David Milton Bellamy and Homer Howard Bellamy, the Bellamy Brothers have been a constant on the country music scene since the 1970s. They have charted 20 No. 1 singles, including their crossover hit, Let Your Love Flow. Thursday, February 5, 2015 Vivace Levy Performing Arts Center A quartet that combines the talents of classical and pop singers, Vivace puts a fresh take on the classical and modern music of today. Utilizing both piano and violin, Vivace puts a new spin on the classical crossover/popera genre. Friday, April 17, 2015 The Shindigs Surf Party Tribute Levy Performing Arts Center Just in time for summer, the Shindigs will transport you back to the s and s with a tribute to Americas Band, the Beach Boys! Its the perfect time to sing along to all of the songs you know and love, like Surfin USA, I Get Around, and Help Me, Rhonda. We had to really focus on what has sold well and what the community has responded to when we made the decision to go to a smaller series, Chapman said. The country/western genre has been our biggest success the past several years, from Easton Corbin to Tracy Lawrence to Roots & Boots. The magician is a crowd pleaser every year, and our tribute acts have been phenomenal. Im excited to see the communitys response to the classical popera Vivace this year, as weve been targeting them for nearly four years. Season ticket prices are $75 for FGC staff, faculty, and students, and $125 for the general public. Season tickets also include VIP seating for the conference center shows. Tickets can be purchased by calling (386) 754-4340 or by visiting www.fgcentertainment. com.

ENTERTAINMENTContinued From 1A Home who arranged Gabes funeral, said out of all the funerals shes done, Gabe is one of the people who has touched her heart the most. Twenty-six years in this business, I have to admit he probably affected me the most as far as children, she said through tears. Jennifer said that while she wont ever be able to fully understand the effect Gabe had on people, she thinks that maybe his pure soul is what drew people to him. Nothing held him back. You could tell that he was a pure soul. He was a godly soul, and I think thats what attracted people to him. It was like a magnet, she said. Gabriel knew God. I mean he understood. We talked to him about Jesus all the time, so Im sure there was something in him that just touched people. You knew he had a beautiful soul because you could see it in his smile, Jennifer said. Every child has a beautiful smile. And Im biased obviously, but this child when he smiled at you, you didnt just see the smile, you felt it, Jennifer said. It went through your eyes into your soul. It was the most beautiful thing in the world. I miss that smile, she said as her voice cracked from tears. Gabe was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma on July 27, 2010 and started chemotherapy immediately. He had a bone marrow transplant that took very well. And then in late 2011, the moment they had been praying for happened Gabe went into remission. But no more than two months later, the cancer was back with a vengeance and had spread all over his body. He had tumors in his ankles, wrists, elbows and groin that were crushing his bones. By March 2012, Jennifer knew that Gabes time on earth was coming to an end, and about two weeks later, he passed in her arms. Its an honor to know that hes touched so many lives, Jennifer said. And I know hes in heaven. But of course, she, her husband and their other children wish he was still here. He would be starting school (this year), which is hard, Jennifer said. But they dont dwell on his death. Instead, they try to promote awareness of childhood cancer. With September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, they want to make sure people know about pediatric cancer because knowing about it could save a life. Theres this thing that I read once that said Why should you be aware of cancer? Your child doesnt have cancer. Well, at one point in my life, my child didnt have cancer either, Jennifer said. Not to scare anybody because its not something you want to worry about. Its not something you want to think every time my child gets sick, Does my child have cancer? Thats not what this is about. Its about knowing the signs of cancer and looking for them, she said. If she had taken Gabe to the doctor earlier, maybe he would still be here, she said. Neuroblastoma, which took Gabes life, is actually the most common kind of pediatric cancers. Just be aware. It can happen. It does happen everyday. People just dont see it, she said. COURTESYClassical and pop quartet Vivace will perform at the Levy Performing arts Center on Thursday, February 5, 2015 as part of the 2014-15 FGC Entertainment season. GABRIELContinued From 1A SARAH LOFTUS/Lake City ReporterJoseph and Triniti Cox hold their five-week-old baby brother, Liam Cox, in front of Dees Parrish-Family Funeral Home where their brother Gabriel was buried in March 2012 after losing his battle with neuroblastoma at the age of 3. The family now tries to spread awareness about childhood cancer because its something most people dont think about, though knowing about it can save lives, they say. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and is marked by the color gold, which is why theres a gold ribbon on the funeral homes door. Debbie Dees, the owner of the funeral home, put the ribbon on the building in the hopes that it raises awareness of childhood cancer.

By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterFORT WHITE Shea Showers wears several hats at Fort White High School. The head girls basketball coach, hes also an assistant football coach and physical education teacher. And he plays one other very special role as the coach for Special Olympics at Fort White a role that he wasnt expecting when he signed on at FWHS, but one that is turning out to be perhaps the most rewarding of all. Special Olympics provides athletic opportunities for a unique group of children: those with intellectual disabilities. Some have intellectual limitations; some have moderate to severe problems with social interaction or communication. Some have both intellectual and physical challenges. For all of them, Special Olympics opens up a new world, one in which they have the chance to be recognized for their abilities rather than stigmatized for their disabilities. That fits in perfectly with Showers philosophy, one developed through 10 years of teaching and coaching experience. These kids are like any others, he said. They get frustrated sometimes and they have their moments. What I do is teach them skills, show them correct techniques and praise their improvement. Theyve all got talent somewhere. What I do is help them find opportunities to display those talents. Showers Special Olympians get the opportunity to strut their stuff in three different sports. They begin with bowling in the fall, moving on to basketball in the winter and track and field in the spring. Students who excel in their sport can qualify for regional and state competition. Showers took over FWHS Special Olympians after Mike Hunters departure in 2012, though it wasnt exactly his idea. It was just something that got handed to me, he said. Since then, Special Olympics has grown on him. These kids try so hard, he said, beaming. It means a lot to them when they get something right and theyre praised for it. Just being able to help these kids and help them enjoy sports, that means a lot to me. Showers gives a lot of credit for the success of Fort Whites Special Olympics program to fellow coach and PE instructor Rick Julius and to the paraprofessionals who work with the students. Another source of help is the schools student leadership program, which provided volunteers to work with last years track and field meeting. Students who share PE classes with the Special Olympians also play a role. When I need to teach Special Olympics students new skills or the rules of a game, I pair them with regular students who help by demonstrating what theyre supposed to do, Showers said. They usually do a great job. It gets to where they treat the special kids just the same as anyone else. Funding is the biggest issue for Special Olympics, as it is for many other school-related programs. Our biggest expense is paying for transportation to and from events, said Showers. Fortunately, weve been blessed with generosity from donors in the community and in the school. Somehow, it always works out. At the moment, Showers has about 25 Special Olympians from grades 6 through 12 involved in bowling. They have a meet scheduled at Lake City Bowl for September 12 at 10 a.m., and if Showers could have one wish granted, it would be for a big turnout. Having people come out and cheer for them means the world to these kids, he said. Wed like to get them all the support we can.

AUDREY E SIKES, MMC City Clerk By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.comSix members of Florida Gateway College Student Government Association and the Student Activities Coordinator were soaked with ice-cold water during the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Thursday after they nominated the Florida Gateway College Board of Trustees to the challenge. Katelyn Greer, secretary of SGA, and Billy Greer, student senate chairmen of SGA, said this was the second time they had participated in the ice bucket challenge and were excited to nominate the board of trustees. Its been a chain reaction of staff and students participating on campus, Billy Greer said. Weve had about five to six groups out here doing the challenge, and these arent small groups, he said. Theres a good handful of people in these groups. Billy Greer said he believes the challenge has spread a great amount of awareness since it started. Not only has he participated in the challenge twice, he said he also plans to make donations to help the cause. Since the time the ice bucket challenge went viral in July, the ALS Association said they have received over $100 million in donations from around the world to support patients with the disease known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease. The challenge is a good way for students to challenge the faculty and administration to get everyone involved, Katelyn Greer said. People arent aware that this is a terrible disease with not much help out there. ALS challenge makes its rounds at FGC JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterIce-cold water is poured on members of the Student Government Association and the Student Activities Coordinator at Florida Gateway College. The seven who participated in the challenge Thursday nominated the Florida Gateway College Board of Trustees to accept the Ice-Bucket Challenge next. The challenge has been making waves across the world as a fundraiser for the ALS Foundation. Members of SGA nominated Board of Trustees to take on the ice-bucket feat.

There are currently marble benches that were once used for having lunch, reading a good book or practicing a fiddle or banjo and the staff hopes to see this area used again in that way. Also part of the restoration project will be clearing a spring-fed stream of overgrown vegetation and pulling some invasive plants. This will be an ongoing project that will benefit current and future generations of park-goers. Come and be a part of it long term or just for a day.

Indians punch Panthers, 21-0 By TIM KIRBY firstname.lastname@example.org NEWBERRY Fort White Highs football team played a complete game, and a complete game, in a 21-0 win at Newberry High on Friday. The Indians ground out 57 running plays, led by Cameron Whites 164 yards on 31 carries and two touch downs, and wore down the Panthers. Donald Robinson added 86 yards rushing on 15 carries. When it looked like Newberry (0-2) was on the ropes late in the first half, Fort White went to a hurryup offense and marched 53 yards in 11 plays, all on the ground. Quarterback Demetric Jackson scored from four yards out and Brandon Shrum kicked the first of his three extra points. The Indians led 7-0 at intermis sion. Fort White ran 14 of the first 17 plays of the second half and White scored his first touchdown on a oneyard run with 4:52 left in the third quarter. The score was set up by a 25-yard pass from Jackson to Shannon Showers. The Indians used anoth er no-huddle drive to go 69 yards in nine plays for Whites second touchdown at 4:14 of the fourth quar ter. Head coach Demetric Jackson said the fast-paced offense had a dual purpose. The Indians played only three quarters in the kick off class and last weeks game against Hamilton County High was shortened to eight-minute quarters. We saw it (Newberry tiring) in the first half, Jackson said. We decided to pick up the pace a little bit and run at them. We also wanted to find out if we could play a whole game. Fort White High runs for more than 200 yards. INDIANS continued on 2B Muddy defeat BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Roger Cray returns an interception in a 10-7 loss against Lincoln High on Friday. Tigers tamed by Trojans By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com In a night that Columbia Highs defense finally came alive, the offense fell com pletely apart. The Tigers took their first loss in a 10-7 defeat at the hands of the Trojans of Lincoln High. It was a game that didnt feature an offensive touch down. In a game where Columbias defense only gave up 136 yards and forced five turnovers, the Tigers would seem like certain winners. Columbias offense stayed in neutral through out the defeat, however, and the Tigers managed only 87 yards while try ing to force feed Lonnie Underwood. Statistically it was one of Underwoods worst out ings for the Tigers as he faced continual rain and a Trojans defense that swarmed throughout the game. Underwood managed only 32 yards on 23 car ries, but the passing games wasnt much better. Jake Thomas was only able to complete four pass es on the night and one went for negative yards. He finished 4-of-20 for 31 yards. Lincoln took a 3-0 advan tage with 4:48 remaining in the first quarter and never looked back. Jerrin Gilmore blocked a Brant Nelson punt to set up the Trojans in Tiger ter ritory at the 27-yard line. While the Tigers defense was able to force a fourth and goal, it was unable to keep the Trojans off the board. Khalil Clark con nected from 23 yards for CHS continued on 2B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Floridas Matt Jones scores a touchdown against Eastern Michigan on Saturday. Streak over By BRANDON FINLEY firstname.lastname@example.org After waiting nearly a year, Florida picked up a victory. There were no thunder storms, unless you count the lightening in a bottle that the Gators offense caught. Florida accounted for 655 yards in the biggest win in Will Muschamps career with the Gators. When the final whistle sounded, Florida account ed for 65 points in a 65-0 thumping of Eastern Michigan. Jeff Driskel returned to quarterback after missing much of last season and looked in midseason form with 248 yards through the air on 31-of-45 passing. Three Gators ran for scores in the first half with Matt Jones starting the trend. Kelvin Taylor and Brandon Powell also rushed for scores. There was no shortage of big plays and plenty of Gators had an opportunity to celebrate. In his first two passes with the Gators, Treon Harris continued the scor ing party after Driskel exit ed the game at the end of the third quarter. Harris connected on passes of 70 and 78, both resulting in touchdowns. It was also Kurt Ropers debut as offensive coordi nator. It didnt disappoint. Florida spread the field throughout the day and attempted 45 passes to show more air in the offense. The Gators com pleted 33 passes in the con test, which is something Florida hasnt done since 2009. The Gators were not only efficient on offense, but were also able to con trol the clock throughout the game. Florida held the ball for nearly 36 minutes and ran 86 plays in the game. While the game was all about offense, Florida defense also performed in typical Muschamp fashion. Eastern Michigan was still under 100 yards of offense deep into the fourth quarter and only reached 125 yards for the game. A good portion of those yards came after Muschamp put in the backups due to the blowout. Florida also forced five turnovers including Duke Dawsons 36-yard intercep tion return for a touchdown. We stress it all the time, Muschamp said. I think that we do have some ballhawk guys. You also have to have guys that under stand when the tackle is secure, you can take a shot at the ball. I think we have some guys that are able to do that. The road gets tougher for Florida from here out as the SEC schedule begins with Kentucky coming in to Gainesville at 7:30 p.m. Florida opens season with 65-0 victory.

It sunk in, as Fort Whites only lost fumble on Friday came late when the game was already decided. We did pretty good on turnovers, Jackson said. We put some other guys in and hope to build some depth. Jackson singled out Jabari Rivers, C.J. McCoy and Joe Bailey as the subs, and said they are coming around. Fort Whites defense wasnt as dominant as in week one, but still held the Panthers to 139 total yards in recording the shutout. An interception return and punt return produced two of the Hamilton County touchdowns. The kids focused all week long, defensive coor-dinator Ken Snider said. We needed to taste some success. We didnt have much in the spring and then there was last week. It was a much-need win and a team effort on both sides of the ball. Fort Whites defense set the tone early by forcing a fumble on Newberrys first play from scrimmage. Justin Asunscion made the recovery, and he had a sack on the Panthers next series. Blair Chapman blitzed and had a sack to end a Newberry threat in the sec-ond quarter and spark Fort Whites touchdown drive. Rivers added a sack in the fourth quarter. Late in the second quarter, the Indians got an inter-ception from Tyler Reed at their 4-yard line and he returned it 39 yards. Showers had an interception and caught all three of Fort Whites completions. The ball was thrown a little behind him and Shannon made a heck of a catch, Jackson said of the catch that set up the second touchdown. He got an interception and played good at cornerback. He had a good game. Fort White (1-1) returns home this week with Bradford High (0-2) com-ing to Arrowhead Stadium.

Ben Kuykendall recovered a fumble in the second quarter and forced a fumble recovered by Lequavious Paul, but the Tigers were unable to get points on either possession. The second half started with a 95-yard kickoff return from Lincolns John Burt and it looked like the game would end with the same score. Columbias best field position of the game came after Roger Cray intercept-ed a Chris Brimm pass and returned it 34 yards to set the Tigers up at the 47-yard line. Underwood fumbled on the fifth play of the pos-session, however, and the opportunity was lost. Lincoln had a chance to put the game away late in the fourth quarter and had the ball at the Tigers three-yard line, but Roderick Broomfield came away with a fumble recovery to keep hope alive. With 1:52 remaining in the game, Daylon Sheppard gave the Tigers a spark by blocking Lincolns punt and returning it 50 yards to cut the score to 10-7 following Hunter Houstons extra point. The clock ran out on the Tigers, however, when Lincoln recovered the fol-lowing kickoff and killed the remaining 1:49 of the contest. CHS: Defeated 10-7 by Lincoln Continued From Page 1B Florida State breezes past Citadel, 37-12By KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston had no problem getting the ball to just about everyone. It was a sign that the top-ranked Seminoles (2-0) may be ready to put to rest some of the questions about their youth. They had 10 different players catch a pass and seven had a rush in a 37-12 rout of lower-tier FCS opponent The Citadel on Saturday. Winston threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns, and the 18th consecu-tive win set a FSU school record. It was a contrast to last week, when Florida State force-fed the ball to seniors Karlos Williams and Rashad Greene. In our offense, we may call it somewhere, but it doesnt have to go there, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. We dont force the ball. Thats what weve got to have, diversity around the board. Guys can catch it and run it. The quicker those young guys developing, the better were going to be. Winston completed 22 of 27 passes and the offense scored touchdowns on all four first-half drives and field goals on his two third-quarter drives. The Heisman winner sat down with a 34-0 lead. The Citadel quarterback Aaron Miller completed 3 of 11 passes for 46 yards and a touchdown and ran for 61 yards. The Bulldogs (0-2) had eight rushers carry in their triple-option offense and the ground game accounted for 250 of the teams 322 offensive yards. It was loud, very loud, Miller said. My offensive line, the first plays, they told me they cant hear me. Im yelling at the top of my lungs and Im figuring Im not going to have a voice by halftime. The Florida State offense was able to drive up and down the field with little resistance while its starters were on the field. In the choppy season-opening win against Oklahoma State, Winston seemed to force the ball to receiver Greene, who fin-ished with 203 yards on 11 receptions. Williams was one of just two run-ning backs to carry the ball against the Cowboys, and had 23 of the teams 31 rushes. Im comfortable with everybody, because thats how this offense is, Winston said. We try to give everybody the ball and a lot of people had touch-es this game. Thats how Coach Fisher does things.Its not a one man show, everyones going to get that rock.
The greens process on the back nine is going smooth. We have about another week or two for the growth to be where it needs to be for the right cut. Once this is done, they will be rolling better, and the health of the greens will only progress from here. The front greens have come in beautifully. The growth of the front greens is exactly where it needs to be and they are rolling just right. Friday Dogfight winners were Tony Kent and Kevin Parks, who tied for first place with +2.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-04204BSportsI wrote about my tournament fishing experience in The Diary of a Bearded Fisherman earlier this summer, and refer-enced the terrible weather. At this years 2014 Sam Crosthwait Memorial Fishing Tournament, an additional division was to be introduced. This divi-sion, known as Extreme Offshore Division, was to be the first leg of the Florida West Coast Triple Crown Billfish Series and it was postponed because of the weather. Ive told stories of some big fish in recent months, from 100-pound grouper to 300-pound tarpon, but none of these fish compare to the marlin. They are the top of the mountain in fish-ing period. Inshore, offshore, freshwater, saltwater, fly-fishing, it doesnt matter, marlin are the gold standard of our sport. Ive never caught one, but Ive stood beside my dad when a 400-pound blue marlin darted into our trolling spread 70 miles off the coast of Jacksonville. We were fishing with big tackle, and this fish hit with so much power and speed that he was dumping (fishing term for simply pulling off line at a ridiculous speed) the reel in seconds. The whole experience lasted 60 sec-onds, but it seemed like an eternity. He came within five feet off the back of the boat, crashed the lure, and had so much speed that our line was straight back, and he was 200 yards in the total opposite direction! It defied physics, and that distinct sound of the reel screaming led to the boat name for this years win-ner. Scott Rickert of team Reel Screamer is known for his ability to fish the blue water in the Gulf of Mexico. He has prob-ably caught more Gulf of Mexico billfish than the best on the entire west coast of Florida. Despite all the awards and tournament wins, team Reel Screamer pulled off a special feat during the Extreme Billfish Division Crosthwait Tournament. For the first time in Rickerts illustrious fishing career, he was part of the billfish super slam con-sisting of a blue marlin, a white marlin, a sailfish and a swordfish. The weather was flat calm, Rickert said. You could water-ski on it. We were about 160 miles offshore, nearly due west of Naples. No one was around us, and it was a place I had never been. In a time when most anglers are all about the numbers or set spots familiar to them, Rickert trusted new fishing part-ner Capt. Glenn Cameron. As Rickert explained it, Glenn did all the research tides, water tempera-ture, rips, everything. He looked at the map and said, There is where were going. Capt. Cameron also is no stranger to success. He is known best for win-ning the Captain of the Year award for In The Bite Magazine for his tourna-ment success and ability to blue-water fish. This was his first bluewater trip in the Gulf of Mexico, and Rickert took the rod while Cameron took the wheel. Its fishing. The difference from the east coast to the west coast is the distance you have to go to get to fish, said the Stuart resident and captain of the Floridian Cameron. I look at everything very scien-tifically. Fish act ways for a reason. What I do is dif-ferent than most. We fish a lot of light tackle and land about 75-80 percent of the billfish we hook. In fact, the teams 175pound blue marlin was landed on 25-pound test in 30 minutes. Reel Screamer landed two of the four white marlin they hooked, as well as three of the eight sailfish hooked. They were so focused on billfish for the tourna-ment they avoided yel-lowfin tuna, which were seen in the blue water. With $50,000 going to the winner of three-leg billfish event, its easy to see why they focused their time and effort away from tuna. We went around them, trying on the edges of schools of yellowfin tuna for billfish, Cameron said. Yellowfin can fight for up to two hours or longer, and that is a lot of time in tour-naments. While billfish were catch and release, one of those big yellowfin did hit the docks. Team Ripper wowed spectators with a 129.44-pound yellowfin to take first place in the tuna division. They also brought home first place in the wahoo division with a 42.38-pound fish. Team Hooker took first place in the mahi mahi division with a 41.08-pound mahi mahi. With a 116.88-pound swordfish, team Haulin Grass won the swordfish division.

Constructionnow enteringhome stretch.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comT he fourth and final phase of construc-tion designed to make the Southside Sports Complex one of the premier youth sports venues in the Southeast is expected to begin soon. After adding concessions stands, restrooms and safety netting in Phase 1 of the project, field upgrades and infrastructure improve-ments were highlights of the later phases of work. In 2011 the facility hosted more than 30 tourna-ments including baseball, soccer and softball with an average of 30 teams per event. Thus far this year, the complex, 19 tourna-ments have been played with 1,127 teams. For the remainder of the year there are 10 tournaments scheduled and three have already been scheduled for 2015. Work associated with the fourth phase of project includes: Completing light-ing installation at the girls softball complex, installing fencing around the soc-cer complex, seal coat the existing parking lots (3), construct a pole barn for equipment, complete the rebuild of remaining fields (6-8 fields) and repair the coaches building. The initial budget for all phases of the improvement project was listed at $2,924,457. The Columbia County Tourist Development Council is slated to pay $1.7 million National job growth slumps to 142K, lowest in 8 monthsCHRISTOPHER S. RUGABERAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON A surprising drop in hiring and in the number of people seek-ing work in August sent a reminder that the U.S. economic recovery is still prone to temporary slowdowns. Employers added just 142,000 jobs last month, well below the 212,000 average of the previous 12 months. The unemploy-ment rate fell to 6.1 percent from 6.2 per-cent. But that was because more people without jobs stopped looking for one and were no longer counted as unemployed. Analysts took Fridays Labor Department report in stride. They noted that other gauges of the economy from manu-facturing and construction to auto sales remain solid. Layoffs have dwindled, too. Analysts also noted that month-to-month volatility in hiring is common even in a healthy economy. But the dip in hiring also suggests that, though the Great Recession officially ended more than five years ago, the econ-omy has yet to shed some of its lingering weaknesses. Held back by sluggish pay growth, for example, consumers continue to spend cautiously. Most economists foresee an economy thats poised to make further strides, punc-tuated at times by modest setbacks. The figures will inevitably spark speculation that the US recovery is somehow com-ing off the rails again, said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. However, were not too concerned by what is probably just an isolated blip. The report showed the smallest job gains in eight months. The weaker-than-expected numbers make it unlikely that the Federal Reserve will speed up its timetable for raising interest rates. Most analysts expect the first rate hike around mid-2015. The Dow Jones industrial average initially fell, but stocks returned to positive territory by Friday afternoon. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note dropped to 2.43 percent from 2.45 percent late Thursday. That suggests that some investors sought the safety of bonds and foresee no Fed rate increase anytime soon. At least two temporary factors weighed on hiring in August, government officials said. A strike at Market Basket, a grocery chain in the Northeast, contributed to an unusually large drop of 17,000 jobs at food and beverage stores. That strike has since been resolved, which could lead to a rebound in hiring this month. Officials also noted that the number of auto-manufacturing jobs fell 4,600 in August after a surge of nearly 13,000 in July. Auto jobs can be volatile during sum-mer because carmakers often temporarily close factories in July to retool them for new models. That didnt happen this year, which boosted Julys auto job numbers and held down Augusts usual rebound. Yet auto sales were strong in August, and last months job losses in that sector are unlikely to be repeated, analysts said. The overall jobs slowdown certainly hasnt been confirmed by any of the other indicators that weve seen, said Liz Ann Sonders, chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab. It did smack of an out-lier. Augusts job figures tend to be unusually volatile and are typically revised later as government statisticians adjust for unusu-al seasonal factors such as the reopening of school and the Labor Day holiday, said Patrick OKeefe, director of economic research at the accounting and consulting firm CohnReznick. occurred 21,000 employment tation gaining PHASE 4 continued on 2C

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! University: Analysts tend to herd. Theres no big penalty if youre wrong, because everyone else is wrong. Youve got cover. Youre not going to lose your job. If you take a different opinion, either you get a big prize if youre right, or you lose your job. An analyst needs to be really courageous to say something differ-ent from most other analysts. Analysts are frequently wrong, too. The folks at NerdWallet found that over the course of 2012, only 51 percent of analyst ratings for the 30 stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average were correct. (Hold ratings were far less likely to be correct than buy ratings.) It all makes some sense when you realize that many analysts work for investment banks that would rather not tick off companies that might be customers one day. If you really want to follow some financial pundits, check out The Motley Fools CAPS stock-rating platform, tracking calls made by Wall Streeters as well as many thousands of individual investors. At caps.fool.com/Stats.aspx you can see lists of the most accurate Wall Streeters, and see which stocks our highest-rated players are recom-mending, too.P K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Theres Life in MetLifeFounded in 1868, MetLife (NYSE: MET), one of the worlds largest life insurance companies, might belong in your stock portfolio. It serves about 100 million customers in nearly 50 nations, offering life insurance, annuities, asset management, auto insurance, home insurance, IRAs, employee benefit programs and more. Theres much to like about MetLife, such as its push into fast-growing emerging and developing markets and its cost-cutting plans to boost profit-ability. Operating earnings in its Euro-pean, Middle Eastern and African business (excluding Western Europe) grew 16.1 percent on average over the last two full financial years. The company is also aiming to reduce operating earnings volatility and improve free cash flow by shift-ing its business focus from market-sensitive, capital-intensive products toward protection-oriented, capital-efficient products, according to its most recent 10-K report. Growing its global employee benefits business is a priority. If interest rates rise in com-ing years, as theyre expected to, that will serve as another growth catalyst. MetLifes valuation is also appealing. Its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio was recently 17, well above its five-year average of 11, but its forward-looking P/E, based on next years expected earnings, is 9. Its a financial giant with a diversified international platform, economies of scale and a well-known brand and a solid dividend, too. TheMotley Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich 8jbk_\=ffc Dp;ldY\jk@em\jkd\ek Not Too LateWe all know that hindsight is 20/20, but I had plenty of informa-tion and still did not take advan-tage of investing in Home Depot or Wal-Mart when I first learned about them. I was just too timid and indecisive, as I didnt know enough about investing. The stocks have split numerous times since then, and I missed out on those. J.P., Ellendale, North Dakota The Fool Responds: Its not necessarily best to invest in prom-ising companies as soon as you hear about them. Instead, spend time researching them, their rivals and their industry, gaining confi-dence in your decision. Consider that investors in WalMart have averaged annual gains of 11 percent over the past five years and also the past 20 years. Better still, Home Depot stock has grown faster in the past few years than in many previous ones. Neither seems like a screaming bargain right now, but their businesses are likely to keep growing, and you might buy either stock on a pullback. Remem-ber, too, that stock splits are close to meaningless, not changing the value of a holding. (The Motley Fool has recommended Home Depot.)Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Property insurance becomes election issue for 2nd time By BRENDAN FARRINGTONAP Political WriterTALLAHASSEE Democrat Charlie Crist said Thursday he suc-cessfully reduced rising property insurance rates as governor and will do so again if elected, vow-ing to repeal a law enacted under Republican Gov. Rick Scott that he said provides weaker coverage at a higher price. Its a familiar theme for Crist, who campaigned in 2006 on a pledge to lower insurance rates that were skyrocketing after eight hurricanes battered Florida in two years. One of his first acts as governor was to call a special session to deal with ris-ing rates. Lawmakers expanded the amount of state-sponsored reinsur-ance, which brought down costs for private carriers, and froze rates by the state-created Citizens Property Insurance Corp., which took on more policies as national companies backed away from Florida. Rates fell a full 10 percent over the course of my term. We saved Florida families thousands of dol-lars. Rick Scott, unfortunately, had different priorities, Crist said. He took office and signed legislation the insurance companies wanted. Minutes after Crists announcement, the Office of Insurance Regulation announced that it approved the removal of 428,000 pol-icies from Citizens to private compa-nies. In all, nearly 900,000 policies have been approved for removal as the state tries to reduce the number of Citizens policies. Customers can choose to remain with Citizens. Under Crist, who was then a Republican government, industry experts warned that Citizens was overexposed and the state was gam-bling that no hurricanes would hit Florida. If a major hurricane had hit, Citizens, with more than a million policies, may not have been able to cover all claims and assessments would have been added to all Florida policies to cover the shortfall. And some of the rate increases under Scott can be put on Crists shoulders. Crist signed a bill late in his term that ended a three-year rate freeze and allowed Citizens to increase premiums by up to 10 percent a year over several years in an effort to make it actuarially sound. Scott signed a bill his first year in office designed to attract more insurance companies to Florida. Consumer advocates and legisla-tive critics said it would raise rates by up to 15 percent while taking away benefits from customers. Crist vetoed a similar bill the year before. Scotts campaign criticized Crists insurance policies for putting more of a burden on state government. Florida taxpayers were left on the hook for billions and homeown-ers were left with fewer options to protect their property, said Scott spokesman Matt Moon in an email to reporters. Under Governor Scott, Florida has done the exact opposite, reforming and shrinking Citizens Insurance while giving consumers more choice and competition to pro-tect their home. Microsoft making mid-range phones for budget consciousBy FRANK JORDANSAssociated PressBERLIN Microsoft will seek to draw more people to its Internet-based services with two new mid-range smartphones. The devices unveiled Thursday are under the Lumia brand Microsoft bought from Nokia. They run the latest version of Windows Phone 8 and feature Cortana, a Siri-like voice assistant available to help with directions, calendar appointments and messages. Many of those inter-actions will steer users to Microsoft services such as Bing search and OneDrive storage. Chris Weber, Microsofts vice president for mobile devices sales, said consumers should feel comfort-able about storing their personal pic-tures on OneDrive, despite recent hacks exposing celebrities private pictures stored on services such as Apple Inc.s iCloud. I think we have to amplify the message around security regarding these cloud services, Weber told reporters. To this end, Microsoft is also giving users more control over the kind of information friends, diaries, home address that the Cortana voice assistant will have access to, he said. Microsoft bought Nokias phone business in April as it seeks to boost Microsofts Windows Phone sys-tem, which has had little traction compared with Apples iPhones and Googles Android system. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has made mobile phones and Internet-based services priorities for the company as its tra-ditional businesses Windows and Office software installed on desk-tops slow down or decline. Microsofts new Lumia 730 and 830 phones wont have all the tech-nical advances found in Microsofts pricier flagship, the Lumia 930 phone, which is known as the Lumia Icon in the United States. The 730s rear camera takes 6.7 megapixel shots, while the 830 is 10 megapix-els. By contrast, the 930 phone is at 20 megapixels, one of the highest in a smartphone. The 830 has a 5-inch screen and will cost about 330 euros ($435) before tax, compared with 440 euros for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and 515 euros for the iPhone 5. The 4.7-inch 730 will cost 199 euros. It will have 3G connectiv-ity and slots for two SIM cards, an important feature in emerging markets where wireless plans vary widely such that users switch ser-vices often to get the best deals. A 4G version will be known as the 735 and will cost 219 euros. Microsoft, which bought Skype three years ago, is also throwing in three months of free international voice calls with every new purchase. The new phones will start shipping in September, though not nec-essarily right away in all markets. Typically, Lumia phones make it to the U.S. under different model numbers. Among other new releases unveiled at the show: Chinese firm Huawei is focusing on battery life with its Ascend Mate7 smartphone, which as 6-inch screen and a massive 4100 mAh battery. Shao Yang, head of Huaweis marketing department, said even heavy users would get two days work out of a full battery charge. The Mate7 sports a fingerprint sensor on the back that can be used to unlock the phone. But while Samsung and Apple have already done this in their latest flagship phones, Huawei lets users associate each of up to five fingers with a dif-ferent function. This can be used to show something to a friend but hide private photos, for example. Taiwanese phone manufacturer HTC unveiled a mid-tier Desire phone. The Desire 820 has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for the increasingly important selfie func-tion; and a 5.5-inch screen to show off the videos recorded with the 13-megapixel back camera. HealthCare.gov reported hackedBy RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON Hackers successfully breached HealthCare.gov, but no consumer information was taken from the health insurance website that serves more than 5 mil-lion Americans, the Obama adminis-tration disclosed Thursday. Instead, the hackers installed malicious software that could have been used to launch an attack on other websites from the federal insurance portal. Health and Human Services spokesman Aaron Albright said the website component that was breached had been used for testing and did not contain consumer infor-mation, such as names, birth dates, Social Security numbers and income details. The initial intrusion took place July 8, but it was not detected until Monday of last week during a man-ual scan of system logs. HHS said the component that was breached did not have a firewall, or intrusion detection software, installed on it. Technicians manually scanning logs discovered the breach Aug. 25 and took action. The Homeland Security Department, which helps safeguard federal systems, said the scope of the attack was limited to one server. There is no evidence an attack was subsequently launched from the tainted machine. Federal computer systems are the targets of hundreds of cyberattacks every day, but this is believed to be the first successful one involving HealthCare.gov. The health care site had numerous technical problems when it was launched last fall and was initially unworkable for most consumers. Among the issues that concerned the governments own technical experts was that security testing could not be completed because the system was undergoing so many last-minute changes. HealthCare.gov eventually passed security cer-tification. Motorola emphasizes design in smartwatchANICK JESDANUNAP Technology WriterNEW YORK Motorola rolled out a circular smartwatch Friday, counting on a more traditional design to win over consumers who have so far shunned other comput-erized wrist devices. Smartwatches so far have had rectangular faces, a shape that has turned off many consumers, said Steve Sinclair, Motorolas vice president of product management. Motorolas Moto 360 is round and has an all-metal frame, making it look more like a regular watch. People dont want to wear a shrunken-down smartphone on their wrist, Sinclair said. Reshaping the smartwatch still might not be enough to sway con-sumers attitudes. Apart from design, smartwatches have had lim-ited appeal because of their small displays and a requirement to have a companion smartphone nearby. Technology companies have yet to make a compelling case for why everyday consumers need them. Nonetheless, mobile device makers are still pinning their hopes on smartwatches spurring more sales to consumers who already have smartphones and tablet computers and arent looking to upgrade right away. Samsung and Sony already have smartwatches out, and new models are coming this fall. Apple is also believed to be working on one that could be announced Tuesday. Fridays debut of the Moto 360 comes a week after LG Electronics Inc. announced its own circular smartwatch, the G Watch R. LGs watch wont be available for at least a month, though, and its price wasnt immediately announced. Both watches use Googles Android Wear operating system. The system uses voice controls for basic functions, such as reading messages, checking the weather and getting reminders on calendar appointments. The Moto 360 costs $250 and starts shipping Friday. That comes with a leather band. A metal-band version will come out this fall for $300. After smartphones, smartwatches and smart glasses, as in the comput-erized Google Glass, whats next? Smart rings, perhaps.

Fire safety the first-grader learned at school taught her to always leave a building and help others out of the building when smoke detectors are going off. So on Monday around 11 p.m. when the smoke detectors went off at her house, she jumped out of bed and went to wake up her mother, Sue Strickland. Kaitlyn said she just remembered what she did during fire drills at school and knew that they needed to get out of the house. She was pulling me down the hallway and out of the door, Strickland said. We didnt know what was going on. Once Columbia County Fire Rescue arrived, it determined that there wasnt actually a fire at the home, just smoke coming from the air conditioning system that had a broken fan. Kaitlyn said her mom was the one who was scared, not her. Well, maybe I was scared a little, she said. But my mommy was scared a lot. CCFR was so impressed by Kaitlyns bravery that it came to Eastside Elementary School, where she attends, on Thursday morning and presented her with a framed certificate and Moes Southwest Grill bucks. Eastside Principal Trey Hosford, Kaitlyns teacher Ashley Kennington and her classmates watched as CCFR bestowed her awards on her. My class was excited that they gave me an award, and then everybody wanted an award, she said. All the kids said it was cool. It was cool that they brought their firetruck.Our first stop in Jasper National Park at the top of the Canadian Rockies was the town of Jasper. First up was a ride on the Jasper Sky Tram up Whistlers Mountain. The Sky Tram is celebrating their 50th anniversary this summer. There werent any lines or waiting period so we were able to get right on. The lower station sits at approximately 4,278 ft. The ride up took us to about 7,470 feet and takes about 7 minutes. Once we reached the top, we saw that there was a boardwalk around the tram station with viewing points. My first picture was back down looking over the town of Jasper. Its shaped like a boomerang. The views were spectacular from every angle. So from here we had the option to hike the summit. The online advertisement suggests you step away from the Upper Station and broaden your view of Whistlers Mountains Alpine Tundra. When I read about this online, I didnt really know what to expect. But when I got there and saw it, my perceptions were way off. From below it looked like a long way; they said it was 1.4 km or .87 miles. However, what you cant see from below when you decide to take on the challenge is the extreme incline of 656 feet. Thats approximately 650 feet in less than a mile. Needless to say, once we started, I wasnt stopping except for the numerous breaks to catch my breath. Not only am I not in as good of shape I once was, but I had the altitude working against me. I kept thinking, but I walk the golf course regularly and there are hills out there; definitely not the same at practically below sea level. Not only that, we werent walking, we were climbing. Im stubborn that way about not quitting something because its hard. I told Sue once we reached the top that it was almost like my eyes being bigger than my stomach when ordering off the menu, but I dont ever want to let something beat me. After grabbing multiple photos from the top, we began our descent. Sue said this was more difficult than going up, but I disagree. I think it is because shes gun shy after she took a little tumble in Yellowstone two years ago, while working her way down a small dirt trail to a waterfall. We took more pictures of the trail on our way down. Both from the angle looking up and looking down, so we could see and prove what we had just accomplished. Happy to TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonOur trip to Jasper National Park TRAVEL continued on 4D COURTESYMembers of Columbia County Fire Rescue Department present Kaitlyn Martin, 6, a framed certificate and Moes Southwest Grill bucks for her efforts to get her mom out of the house Monday night when smoke detectors went off.

Since it will have an effect on the rest of your life, there seems to be the overwhelming consensus that you should spend at least a few minutes finding out exactly where youre getting your education from. Sure, you may like watching the Florida Gators play every Saturday, but, aside from the fact you follow their sports teams, what can you tell me about the university? Yes, it has very prestigious programs and is almost always mentioned when talking about the upper echelon of education in America, but that doesnt mean its the right fit for you. Think of colleges like running shoes some are flashy and attractive but not necessarily comfortable once you put them on. Thats why shoe stores exist they offer that try before you buy model. So, consider Florida Gateway Colleges upcoming College Night as a shoe store for colleges. Its a place where you can get Picking the right college for you Birth Announcement Philip and Bille Jo Poppell, of Lake City, are pleased to announce the birth of their son, Jasper William Poppell, on April 30.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: Twenty-three years ago my husband and I lost our firstborn son. As my husband was active duty military, we could have buried him anywhere in the United States. At the time, we were in a place where my sister swore to me she would always live, and she would always be there to take care of him. I knew with my husbands career we had many more moves ahead of us, and it helped to ease the loss knowing that he would be taken care of. Well, that lasted all of three years. My hus band and I are now at a point where we have settled down and we know where we should have buried our pre cious angel, instead of trusting my sister. We want to have him exhumed, cremated and placed in a veter ans cemetery, but my question is this: Do I have the right to ask my sister to pay part of the costs as she broke her promise to help care for my son? HEARTBROKEN DEAR H.B.: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your son. While its clear that there are many hurt feelings about what happened after his orig inal interment, I think its time to forgive your sister. Its a fact of life that sometimes unforeseen circumstances prevent people with the best of intentions from keeping promises they make. Forgive her if you can, but dont ask her for money. She may owe you an apology, but she does not owe you any money. DEAR ABBY: Im very close to my family. We visit each others homes often. But for the past year or so, something has begun to bother me. Its cell phone chargers. Whether people come for a week or just for dinner, out come the chargers! The kids all start plugging in their cellphones and tablets, and the adults follow suit with their cell phones and laptops. I started asking around and its not just happening to me. A lot of my friends have the same gripe. Lamps, toast ers, pencil sharpeners -you name it -their cords are left dangling long after the guests have departed. After the last weekend, I installed a power strip in the TV room and will direct the traffic there in the future. Would you please let people know how rude this is? Also mention that the host is not responsible for an elec tronic item plugged in on a kitchen counter, or anywhere for that mat ter. UNPLUGGED IN SALEM, N.Y. DEAR UNPLUGGED : While the power strip you installed is the practical solution, the problem is that the people you have described are thought less. Polite guests leave their hosts home in the same condition it was in when the guests arrived. In this instance, it means being consid erate enough to plug in any appliances that the guests unplugged, so the host doesnt have to wonder why the darned thing isnt working after everyone has departed. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Expand your interests and friendships and you will discover options you didnt realize you had. An emotional situation may be based on false information. Dont jump to conclusions or make assumptions that can lead to alienation. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful not to go over budget or to take on more than you can handle. Stick to simple pleasures and avoid indulgences that can be costly. Focus on love, self-improvement and stabilizing your position. Seek knowledge and hone your skills. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont believe everything you hear and tread carefully when discussing personal preferences. Treating the people you are emo tionally connected to will help you avoid complaints, jealousy and revenge. Protect your reputa tion by offering honesty, regard less of the consequences. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use your intuition to guide you through any trouble you encounter at home or with a partner. Your straightforward approach to life and the way you handle personal affairs will provide you with the strength to counter anyone trying to dis mantle your plans. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look for opportunities to learn, travel or interact with stimu lating people. Dont let anyone pressure you to take on respon sibilities that dont belong to you. Look for alternative ways to live if it will encourage happiness and peace of mind. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont take anything for granted. Ask questions and get answers before you make a decision that can affect a partnership. Find ways to increase your assets using cautious calculations. Having a plan and strategy in place will help prevent mistakes. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take the liberty to do things that please you. Its fine to be a peacekeeper, but once in a while you have to give in to your needs. Make plans to have some fun with someone who makes you feel special. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do what you can to help someone facing confused or uncertain times. Your loyalty and desire to make a difference will put you in the spotlight, bringing about some awesome opportuni ties to explore new possibilities for professional advancement. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make plans and have fun, but dont let the reac tions and authenticity of some ones response toward you mis lead you. Ulterior motives are likely to be behind a gesture of friendliness someone offers you. Be careful who you share per sonal information with. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you cannot make up your mind, retreat. Take however much time you require to avoid making a mistake. Money will come to you from an unusual source. Dont share information regarding your gains. Bide your time. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Youll have an intuitive view when it comes to personal financ es, health or legal matters. Follow your gut feelings and make what ever changes are necessary to get what you want. Opportunity is heading your way, so dont hes itate to take it. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There are all sorts of things you can do to protect your interests and to help your assets grow in value. Your intuition is strong, but your emotions will cause uncertainty. A realistic assessment will lead to victory. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Moving childs grave sparks buried anger after 20 years Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

have completed the challenge, we stopped inside for an adult beverage before tackling the line to catch the tram going back down. What a great opportunity to start our trip into the Canadian Rockies. The outdoor activity provided us with crisp, clean mountain air, blue skies, and the sun shining while we experienced Whistlers Mountain in a way that you wouldnt have expected. We are typically looking up from the road at the often snow capped peaks, but today we were able to look down from the peak at the valley below filled with the town of Jasper and the many rivers flowing through it. all of the information you need about a college without ever having to visit. Maybe analogies arent my strongest suit, but I think you get the point.

Additionally, nearly 40 universities will be represented. Numerous Florida universities, including Saint Leo University, University of Florida, University of Central Florida, University of Miami, Baptist College of Florida, and Tuskeegee University, will be on hand to provide information to students curious about their schools. University representatives from Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and Rhode Island will also be in attendance.

Whether youre thinking about where to go after high school or are looking for that change of career to match your current lifestyle, theres a school and a program out there for you. And this is one of those rare opportunities where you can speak one-on-one with representatives from numerous colleges at the same venue, all at the same time.

Contact her at email@example.com TRAVELContinued From 1D Troy Roberts is the public information coordinator at Florida Gateway College. He can be reached at troy. firstname.lastname@example.org. COLLEGEContinued From 1D Pecan trees can be grown without extensive care, but consistently high pecan yields are not likely. In the fall, I receive many questions from homeowners about their low-yielding pecan trees. People wonder why the actual nuts didnt form, were not filled out, or were decayed or had black spots. Many people are perplexed by the reasoning behind alternate bearing years, a good crop one year and a poor crop the following year. North Florida is the southernmost boundary of this native tree. Pecan trees resemble a large forest tree species rather than an orchard crop tree such as peaches or apples. It often grows up to 70 feet tall, with a leaf canopy and root spread of 40 feet or more. Because ample room is needed for this large tree to grow and produce, homeowners should consider space needs before planting pecans. You may have heard of the term sustainable crop. This refers to relative inputs and outputs of crop production, as well as the positive or negative impacts that production has on the environment. Before you decide to actively pursue a great pecan crop on your backyard tree, consider your inputs vs. outputs. Pesticides, labor, equipment, fertilizer and water are all on the inputs side of the equation. The outputs are what we get out of it: yield, quality, net profit, or our own value placed on the crop. Purchasing extra pecans from a local grower may be a more reasonable choice during those lean yielding years. Water and fertilizer requirements for high yields may be more than you think. Although mature pecan trees can survive drought without supplemental water, they will often defoliate early. A mature bearing tree can require more than 200 gallons of water per day in order to produce high yields. Fertilizer is also very important in maintaining a healthy and productive tree. After a tree is established, balanced fertilizer should be applied in February and in June at the rate of 2 to 4 pounds per inch of trunk diameter. Refer to http://edis.ifas. ufl.edu/HS229 for recommendations. Above all, diseases and insects seem to be the limiting factors of a good nut crop. During the 7 months that it takes to develop a nut, there are many opportunities for pests to do their damage. Most insect pests show up at somewhat predictable times which make them a little easier to combat. The pecan-nut casebearer is an important early-season pest, and the first generation does the most damage. Larvae overwinter around the tree and begin eating in the spring. When the adult moths emerge, the females lay eggs on new nutlets. The eggs hatch, and the hungry larvae destroy the nuts. Early feeding stink bugs are responsible for the injury called black pit, which describes the decayed nut interior. Some stink bugs arrive to feed on pecans after their crop and weed food sources die in the fall. The damage caused by these bugs includes dark-spotted and bitter tasting nuts. Although the list of offending insects and diseases is long, there is some hope in producing backyard pecans. The best pecan cultivars for homeowners in north Florida are the following: Cape Fear, Elliott, Curtis, Stuart, Sumner and Moreland. These trees are more sustainable because of their resistance to scab and other leaf diseases. As to the question on alternate bearing, there are many factors involved. By the end of a high yield year, stored energy is depleted, making the plant more vulnerable to stresses in the spring. Premature defoliation in late summer forces the tree to use energy to grow new leaves instead of developing nuts. Even though there are many factors, just keeping healthy leaves on the tree until the first frost will help provide a good crop of nuts.So, you want to grow pecans?GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@u.edu D.
