FDOE press secretary Cheryl Etters said shes not sure when the state will have its new textbooks approved. Math textbooks were set to be adopted during the 2013-14 school year but due to a high volume of textbooks submitted to the state for approval, the group of two to three math teachers who approve textbooks are still reviewing the books submitted, Etters said. Theyre working as quickly as they can, but we dont know when theyll be done, she said. Theyre teachers doing this when they have time. Theyll approve any textbook that meets the Florida Standards, and then individual districts can choose which textbooks they wish to use, Etters said.

The actor recently spent sev eral hours getting lessons from the Ocala crew for his work in the movie “Life on the Line,” in which he plays an electrical lineman. An Ocala lineman invited Travolta to learn from his crew after reading that he was sched uled to play the movie part. Travolta told the newspaper that he took lots of notes while working with the local lineman. The actor said he was impressed by how intricate the work is and how risky it can be, especially in bad weather.Parent sues over shorter recess BRADENTON — One Manatee County mother is crit icizing her local school district for shortening recess time for elementary school students. The estate lawyer with two elementary school-aged children tells The Bradenton Herald her third grader was stressed and upset when she came home one afternoon without having recess. The mother plans to bring a motion before the school board to restore recess time in all ele mentary schools. She says parents were never told about a plan to reduce recess time. But the school district says all students are getting the required number of minutes for physical activity each week. The district says there has been no change in the overall time allotted for exercise but that some students may have less recess time because they are getting more physical education time.‘Santa’ gets 8 years for robbing bank DAYTONA BEACH — A man who robbed a bank two days before Christmas while wearing a Santa suit and carrying a fake bomb in his gift bag has been sentenced to eight years in pris on. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reports that 64-year-old Mark N. London was sentenced Friday after pleading no contest to robbery and displaying a fake bomb during a felony. A judge rejected his claim of mental illness. London told the judge he was ashamed of his actions and of using the Santa Claus suit as his disguise. London said he became des perate after being laid off from his job as a commercial real estate executive.Coast Guard dog boosts morale DESTIN — Rudder, a 4-yearold black Labrador retriever, has several tricks in his repertoire. He can sit, speak, roll over, balance food on his nose and shake hands. He also knows port from star board and can rescue dummies from the water during training. Since June 2010, Rudder has been a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Destin station. “Rudder is considered a 2nd Class Petty Officer because he knows so many tricks,” said Seaman Danielle Heckman. She said he has a list of require ments — tricks he has to learn — in order to advance in rank. “Rudder helps us out at the station,” Heckman said. “One of the jobs he has here is he’ll run out and get the pa-per every morning.” His biggest job, however, is his easiest: boosting the morale of seamen and visitors to the station. “He loves to be around every body,” said Seaman Shelby Yerks. “He’s definitely a little atten tion hog,” Heckman added. When school groups tour the station, both said Rudder is one of the most popular parts of the tour. During meal time, he sits and watches, waiting for someone to sneak him a sample of the meal. When it’s time to rest, Rudder heads to his room, where he has a fluffy dog bed, his food and water dishes and his collars, toys and treats. Rudder is the latest in a long line of Coast Guard dogs. “We’re not the only station that has dogs. It’s pretty popu lar,” Yerks said. Also popular is choosing names with a nautical theme. Rudder’s most recent prede cessor, a yellow lab named Buoy, retired in April 2010, at age 8. He moved to Texas with an outgoing seaman. Rudder replaced Buoy, finding a home and plenty of people happy to love him. Heckman noted that Rudder is a “big morale booster” for seamen who are away from their families. Occasionally, Rudder gets days off. “Sometimes he gets to taken home, too, by the members of the station who wish they had a dog,” Heckman said. He goes out on the boat with the crew, and they’re trying to get him a life vest to wear on the boat. He also runs with the crew, participates in training and warns about intruders, human or animal, inside the gate. “One of his favorite things to do is jump in the water and try to catch the crabs,” Yerks said. “He thinks he’s a crab fisherman.” PEOPLE IN THE NEWS HOW TO REAC H USMain number .......

Kennedy’s WWII letters sell at auction BOSTON — A collection of letters John F. Kennedy sent to the family of a lost PT-109 crewmate sold for $200,000 at an auction. RR Auction, a Boston-based auction house, said the sale happened Thursday during a two-day auction at the Omni Parker House that also saw the sale of a collection of letters that Kennedy’s young er brother, Robert F. Kennedy, wrote to a classmate at what is now the Portsmouth Abbey School in Rhode Island. The letters from the future U.S. president were to the family of Harold Marney, who was killed in 1943 when the PT-109 boat Kennedy commanded was destroyed by a Japanese warship in the Solomon Islands. Kennedy, who became a war hero for saving crew members, sent condolenc es to Marney’s parents. The auction house said the letters are a rare exam ple of Kennedy describing the PT-109 incident in his own words. “Your son rode the PT 109 with me on the night of August 1-2 when a Japanese destroyer, travelling at a high speed cut us in two, as we turned into him for a shot,” the young Kennedy wrote. “I am truly sorry that I cannot offer you hope that he survived that night. You do have the consolation of knowing that your son died in the ser vice of his country.” The letters Robert Kennedy, a future U.S. senator and attorney general, wrote were sent to Peter MacLellan from 1941 and 1945. They fetched $31, 250. The auction house said the buyers of the two sets of letters wish to remain anonymous. Daughter calls Utah doctor a monster PROVO, Utah — A Utah doctor con victed of murdering his wife in a case that became a true-crime cable TV obses sion was sentenced Friday to 17 years to life in prison at a hearing in which his daughter called him a monster. The long-awaited sentence came seven years after prosecutors say Martin MacNeill knocked out his wife with drugs prescribed following cos metic surgery and left her to die in a bathtub so he could begin a new life with his mistress. “My father’s facade has now crum bled,” said Alexis Somers, who asked the judge to give MacNeill the maxi mum penalty. “My father is a monster. He has never shown remorse for any of his crimes. He must be held account able for his actions.” Judge Derek Pullan gave the 58-yearold MacNeill the harshest term possible: at least 15 years and up to life on the murder charge, plus one to 15 years on an obstruction-of-justice charge. A third sentence in a separate sexual abuse case adds another one to 15 years. Scripture of the Day He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 3A 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) From staff and wire reports Columbia County’s job less rate fell slightly to 6.7 percent in August, from 6.8 percent in July, according to figures released by the state Friday. The number of people with jobs rose from 28,641 to 28,920. The jobless rate for August was also better than the rate for one year ago, when it was 6.8 percent. However, the labor pool was larger in August 2013, with 352 more people seeking jobs then. In addition, more people were employed then. In August 2013, 29,220 people were were employed here. Statewide, unemployment for August ticked up slightly from 6.2 percent to 6.3 per cent in July. Gov. Rick Scott, who has made jobs one of the bed rock issues of his re-election campaign, released a video and news release that tout ed Florida’s business-friendly environment and private-sec tor job growth. “Today we have some great news for Florida families,” Scott said in the video. “In the month of August the private sector added over 23,000 jobs. That means since the day I took office, the private sector has added over 643,000 jobs.” Even with the private-sec tor gains, the overall num ber of Floridians deemed out of work grew by 4,000 from July to August, according to the state Department of Economic Opportunity. In a longer view, the number of jobless is down 70,000 from a year earlier. Democratic gubernatorial nominee Charlie Crist, who this week outlined his jobs proposals, released a state ment Friday charging that Scott’s business model isn’t directed at helping the middle class. “The latest jobs report and recent reports on Florida fall ing behind the rest of the nation in income demonstrate the reality of Rick Scott’s high cost, low wage economy,” Crist said in the release. Industries helping drive Florida’s gains in the past year have been tied to food and beverage stores, employment services, ambulatory health-care services, insurance carri ers, fabricated metal product manufacturing, telecommuni cations and local government, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity, The U.S. Census Bureau released figures Thursday indicating that one in five Floridians works in either education or health care, while another fifth were in ser vice-related jobs. Meanwhile, one out of every 7.5 Florida workers is in retail, a figure that ties Arkansas for the highest in the nation. The release from the gover nor’s office noted that Florida’s annual job “growth rate” has exceeded the nation’s mark since April 2012. However, the national unemployment mark stood at 6.1 percent in August, down from 6.2 per cent a month earlier. The state’s unemployment rate, which a year ago was at 7.1 percent and just below the national mark of 7.2 percent, has been mostly flat this year, wavering between 6.2 percent and 6.3 percent. Across Florida, the low est unemployment rates continued to come from the Florida Keys and parts of the Panhandle. Monroe County held the lowest monthly jobless mark in August, at 3.9 percent. Jobless rate here falls, up slightly in state By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com County officials are expected to make final decisions Monday on pro posed stipends and bonus es for county employees, as well as millions in local road improvement proj ects and staffing for two fire stations as they final ize 2014-15 budget. The county’s final bud get hearing for fiscal year 2014-15 will take place at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex Auditorium, 372 W. Duval St., where officials are expected to adopted the county’s pro posed $104.9 million total budget and 8.015 millage rate. By law the county is required to have two pub lic hearings on the bud get. The first hearing took place earlier in the month. Within the budget there are plans for a $10,000 bonus for the Economic Development Director Glenn Hunter, which is expected to be discussed. “That’s $10,000 that would be paid upon the completion of having met certain goals and objec tives,” said Dale Williams, county manager. “Those goals and objectives have yet to be determined, but they will be board approved. It’s not some thing that can be imple mented without first hav ing board oversight.” A similar salary adjust ment for Assistant County Manager Ben Scott was proposed, but has since been withdrawn, Williams said Friday. It is not clear when the proposal was withdrawn. However, a $15,000 sti pend remains in the bud get for Scott performing budget director duties. “This was something that came up post-employ ment of the assistant coun ty manager, and there was discussion in the board’s workshops,” Williams said. “What we’re trying to do is not hire a new employee and the thought process is possibly that we could do this as a sti pend for a period of time until we could properly determine what would be needed in order to pro vide this requirement. But as was the case with the other stipends, this too is subject to review and approval by the BOCC.” There was additional discussion about providing a similar $10,000 stipend for the county’s web devel oper, Jason Weaver, during the previous budget hear ing. However, the board requested additional infor mation and is expected to make a decision on the proposal Monday. During the previous budget hearing a propos al was made to staff the fire stations in Columbia City and Deep Creek with full-time firefighters. The stations are not cur rently staffed. Officials requested information for Monday’s hearing to make a decision on the proposal. The estimat ed cost is approximately $270,000 per station. “What’s important about all these proposed chang es is they do not change the total budget,” Williams said. “Whichever propos als the board may grant, if they cost more than what has been budgeted, there has to be a resulting adjustment in some line item in that fund in order to provide for it.” There was no increase in millage rate for the budget, but there was an increase in projected revenue. The overall floor budget shows the county is using $456,923 of non-recurring funding to balance the budget. The non-recurring funding is for the libraries. The county’s total bud get is $104,911,711 a 13.6 percent increase over the 2013-14 fiscal budget. Williams said road improvements and proj ects are a principal rea son the county’s budget is larger for the 2014-15 fiscal year. The road improvement budget increased from $5.2 million in 2013-14 fis cal budget to $13.9 million. “The road program for the upcoming year is about a $7 million increase from the previous year,” Williams said. “A lot of that is state-shared rev enue (like DOT grants, etc.) but we still have to put that money in our bud get to spend it, so it shows as part of this budget.” The county’s general fund operating budget is $44,851,425. That budget has increased from 2013-14 due to an increase in the value of property and the county did not take mill age rollback rate, but left the millage rate the same as last year. The millage rate is 8.015 mills, which is 0.44 percent higher than the rollback rate. The millage rate equates to a tax increase for some residents. “For the first time in many years there was an increase in revenue. I think that speaks a little bit to the economy,” Williams said. “The county did not take the rollback rate, which is why the millage rate shows an increase in expenditures and a majori ty of those expenditures is in transportation which is a big need here in Columbia County.” County to vote on stipends, raises The budget also: Q Fully funds all constitution al officer budget requests;Q Fully funds mandat ed increases in Florida Retirement System contribu tion rates as approved by the Florida Legislature (depend ing on retirement class, contribution rates increased from 0.35 percent to 10.22 percent);Q Provides for the continu ation of a non-contributory employee health care plan;Q Provides salary adjust ments and raises for all employees (excluding sher iff’s office, property appraiser and tax collector) earning $41,000 per year or less, who will get a $1,000 cost of living adjustment.

By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.com A Lake Butler woman was arrested Thursday for stealing money after making fraudu lent returns at Lowe’s, according to Lake City Police Department. Lisa Sue Balde, 39, 730 SE Townhomes Blvd., has been charged with grand theft after making several transac tions totaling $1,486.83, according to the arrest report. An officer respond ed to Lowe’s at 3463 NW Bascom Norris Drive in refer ence to a theft that had already occurred, the report said. An officer spoke with Michael D. Gregory, a corporate investigator for Lowes, who told the officer he had video evidence that Balde, a customer service associate for Lowe’s, had made fraud ulent returns and stolen money. The arrest report said Balde was booked at the Columbia County Detention Center on $5,000 bond. She has since been released, jail records show.Report: Woman arrested for fraud Balde By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.com Not all Columbia County resi dents agree with the NFL’s decision to suspend Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson after he alleged ly used a “switch” to punish his 4-year-old son. Dewy Starling, Jr., 56, a retired Navy veteran, said he believes that every parent should be entitled to say how their child is disciplined. “I believe 100 percent in corpo ral punishment,” he said. “And I’m not trying to scare everyone away by saying that, but I’d probably be in jail if I wasn’t spanked as a child. That’s how I learned to show respect.” Ruth Schrems, 55, who works in The Shoe Department at the Lake City Mall, said she thinks dis ciplining your child is tolerable to an extent. “They talked about the Peterson issue while I was lis tening to the radio the other day,” she said. “I believe in discipline, but not if it requires medi cal attention after wards. I’d never take it that far.” Allison Mackey, 21, who works at Hibbett Sporting Goods, said she has a four-year-old she could never imagine punishing so severely. “There’s a difference between punishing your child and beat ing your child,” she said. “A light spanking is OK once in awhile, as long as it doesn’t harm them.” Mackey said she prefers to send her child to time out or ground them instead of physically punish ing them. Robert Denny, a retired psychol ogy instructor at Florida Gateway College, said he has dealt with trou bled youth for 15 years, and said he believes the NFL is doing the right thing. Punishment as severe as that meted out by Peterson “has to be prosecuted,” he said, “and it looks to me like the NFL is doing the right thing for suspending him while the legal process is going on.” Locals react to Adrian Peterson, use of corporal punishment on children Starling Schrems Harvey Campbell worked as the local TDC director from Nov. 1, 1992 until his retirement in February. Upon retire ment his annual salary was $60,092. Pearce is said to want a salary of $80,000 with incentives to reach the $100,000 mark. He also wants additional benefits, including a car allowance and a senior management retirement package. At a starting salary of $80,000, that would mean a county contribution of $16,000 per year. Only five coun ty employees now have a senior retirement pack age, Williams said. During its Wednesday meeting, TDC board members weighed the pros and cons of the four finalists before formally endorsing Pearce. Dale Williams said he spoke to the TDC chair man Ron Williams, who is also the Board of County Commission chairman, about Pearce’s decision. He said Ron Williams told him he at least wanted to give the TDC board the chance to ask the county commission to sweeten the offer for Pearce. According to Dale Williams, the TDC will make its pitch at the next county commission meet ing on Oct. 2. If the commission agrees to the TDC pro posal, another offer will be made to Pearce, Dale Williams said. However, if the commis sion does not authorize additional funding for the position, the three remain ing candidates will be con sidered for the position. “We definitely would not start the process over,” Scott said. “We’ve got four people that we thought would be viable candidates for that job, so we still have some good candidates.” “My belief is that all four candidates are good candi dates, all four bring some strengths to the table and any one of the four would be a good person for us to hire,” Dale Williams said. “If the TDC has a recommendation, they’ve made a recommendation — they’re entitled to, but they have to understand we’re still limited by what we can do. They can rec ommend but it doesn’t mean that we have the authority to do it.” TDCContinued From 1Aindicated it was travel ing south on I-75 in Alachua County.

Clemis Lee Davis, of Lake City, was booked into the Alachua County Jail on charges of grand theft auto and driving under a sus pended license, according to the release. He is being held with out bail, jail records show.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com C ounty Manager Dale Williams, good to his word, announced his pick for Tourist Development Council director on Friday. Unfortunately, he also had to announce the man turned us down cold. It seems Gary Pearce of Osceola County wanted a great deal more cash that we can afford. The job pays $65,000, but Pearce wanted $80,000 just for starters, with assurances he’d soon be moving up to six-figure territory. That, plus a spiffy retire-ment package that only upper echelon county employees command. The next step ought to be obvious: move on to Williams’ Number 2 choice and make an offer. Obvious, that is, to everyone except TDC board members who want to drag the matter to the county commission in hopes they’ll offer Mr. Pearce more money. It’s a bad idea, in our view.The previous TDC director held the job for two decades and retired earning about $61,000 annually. We have a good pool of final candidates, and all of them knew the salary going in. The post has been vacant for seven months now. That’s long enough. Let’s offer the job to the next candidate and get on with it. TDC search sidetracked once again Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITORGuide showcases best of business, way of lifeTODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1912, magician Harry Houdini first publicly performed his so-called Chinese Water Torture Cell trick at the Circus Busch in Berlin, escaping after being immersed upside-down in a vertical water tank, his ankles secured in a set of stocks that made up the tank lid, which was locked into place. In 1893, one of America’s first horseless carriages was taken for a short test drive in Springfield, Mass., by Frank Duryea, who had designed the vehicle with his brother, Charles. In 1897, the New York Sun ran its famous editorial, written anonymously by Francis P. Church, which declared, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” In 1912, legendary cartoon animator Chuck Jones was born in Spokane, Wash.

T he Treasury Department has released its monthly statement of the federal government’s receipts and outlays. Tax revenues in August were $194 billion. Federal spending was $323 billion. Altogether, that amounted to a shortfall of $129 billion. With the August monthly deficit, President Barack Obama reached a milestone he almost certainly would prefer to overlook — $7 tril-lion added to the national debt since he moved into the Oval Office. The total stands at $17.7 trillion. On July 3, 2008, future president Obama ripped George W. Bush for the deficits he piled up as president. What the Republican had done, said Mr. Obama, “is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children,” run-ning up the national debt “$4 trillion by his lonesome.” It not only was “irresponsible,” he said, it was downright “unpatriotic.” We think Mr. Obama owes his predecessor an apology.President hypocritical on debt Q Orange County Register To the Editor: Earlier this year there was much ado over what seems like an increase in the incidents of abuse and attacks online. It is my opinion that technology has outpaced our society’s ability to stand on the side of justice and protect its citizens from criminal abuses and behavior, and I worry that this inability to pro-tect law-abiding citizens only adds to the deepening lack of confidence and morass our society seems to be slipping into. When desktop computing in the home exploded in the late 80s, and before the widespread availability of the Internet, the predecessor of social media was born. It was called Usenet and was mainly utilized by educational organizations. As dialup gained in popularity and more and more people were access-ing the information superhighway, Bulletin Board Systems became prolific as well. Most systems and services were moderated and held to stricter standards of conduct. When an obvious troublemaker or malcon-tent would appear it was much easier to keep conversations (or “threads”) on topic. Since there were enough Internet Protocol addresses available it was also quite easy to track down and investigate any violations of our criminal code. As the number of people online grew and social media gained popu-larity there grew also a push for free-dom of speech. The resulting loss of control over what is being retained for presentation and who is able to access and contribute has opened the doors for the more dysfunctional elements of our global society. Now, with IPv6, tunneling, proxy servers and web anonymizing servic-es, the task of investigating a crimi-nal complaint is almost impossible without the expenditure of rapidly shrinking resources and conflicts with laws created to protect our free-doms. Not to mention jurisdictional concerns. It is hard to enforce a local law when the criminal is in another state or possibly even another coun-try. Although every state in the nation has laws restricting harassment, stalking, bullying and other abuses, victims often find themselves alone without recourse or anything beyond a sympathetic ear from law enforce-ment. The federal government cre-ated the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3.gov), but that resource seems to be only interested in pur-suing Internet crimes that have resulted in monetary theft or scams. For an individual who is suffering the loss of reputation, constant defa-mations and slanderous attacks upon their character, an individual has very little recourse besides changing email addresses, which does nothing to address the real issues. When our beliefs in freedom, as a nation who lives by the laws of opportunity and fairness for all, becomes conflicted with our need to enforce those laws, justice loses the battle and anarchy is emboldened.

AUDREY E SIKES, MMC City Clerk By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.comFamilies poured through the gates of the county fairgrounds as the sun came out over Lake Citys Sixth Annual Smokin Pig BBQ Fest on Saturday. The annual competition was hosted by Columbia County resources and sponsored by S&S Food Stores, Budweiser and Rountree-Moore automotive group, where teams from Florida, Georgia and Alabama vying for the top spot. While some barbecue restaurants may have been new to the event, Kellys Old School BarB-Que said they had been in attendance every year since it began. Local barbecue joints fed the crowd and residents had a chance to listen to live auditions from the Suwannee River Jam, which included about 18 contestants. Josh Edwards, a local musician who competed in the audition on Saturday, said the winner of the audition will compete in a semi-final competition in March. He said he was hopeful to win the competition, but said there was a lot of local talent he was competing against. As families listened to auditions and shopped through tents of hand-crafted items, children played in the bounce houses, participated in carnival games, got their face painted and took pictures next to tractors, excavators and other large machinery. As the rain cleared up, local vendors and residents said they were pleased with this years turnout and felt it was a great event for everyone to attend. not try to adopt textbooks on its own due to the costs and the logistical difficulties involved for a district our size. Instead, the district will wait for the state-ap proved textbook list to buy new books, she said. In the meantime, middle and high school math teachers are using previous years textbooks and other instructional material to teach the standards, McElhaney said. Richardson Middle School Principal Angela Coppock said the other materials teachers are using are CPALMS and Engage New York, which were recommended by the district. Supt. Terry Huddleston said CPALMS is a good resource because its aligned to the state standards. Huddleston said he doesnt think not having the standard-aligned textbooks yet is harming students. Teachers are doing a great job of teaching the standards, and thats whats important, he said. McElhaney said it doesnt matter whether teachers are teaching the standards with textbooks or other materials, as long as theyre teaching the standards. If theyre teaching the skills we anticipate being on the test, then I think they will be fine, she said. TEXTBOOKContinued From 1Aproperty, according to the release. He was booked into jail at 4:11 a.m. Friday and at press time was still in jail on an $80,000 bond. According to the release, Walker faces charges of robbery, illegal use of credit cards and dealing in stolen property. She was booked into jail at 3:33 a.m. Friday and is still in jail on $66,000 bond. Smith was arrested for illegal use of credit cards and dealing in stolen property, the release says. He was booked into jail Friday at 3:30 a.m. where he remains on $45,000 bond. According to the release, Walker drove Wilcox and Smith to the mall in her minivan. Walker dropped Smith off at the west side of the mall and then dropped Wilcox off at the east side, the release says. Thats when Wilcox allegedly struck the woman in the back of the head, took her purse and ran toward the rear of Big Lots. He then got back in the van. LCPD officers Connie Hightower and Jason Herrera arrived at the Lake City Mall where they found the woman lying on the sidewalk, bleeding from her nose and shaking. She suffered a broken nose, broken left arm and dislocated shoulder from the attack, the release says. Wilcox, Walker and Smith headed to the Columbia City area to lay low after the attack, according to authorities. On Thursday morning, the three returned to Lake City in the same clothes they were wearing the night before and reportedly started using the victims credit cards. They tried to buy cigarettes with one of them at Murphy USA on U.S. Highway 90 West but left after they were asked for an ID for the credit card, the release says. Sgt. Jason Byrd and Investigators Ivan Useche and Tammy Cox, on reviewing surveillance video, were able to identify the vehicle used in the attack, according to LCPD. Surveillance footage also showed the three going to Walmart where they bought several cell phones with the womans credit card, the release says. The suspects were later seen on video buying a phone case and tablet computer at Phone Shack, the release says. Investigators put together an intelligence bulletin to provide the information to local law enforcement agencies. From the bulletin, Columbia County Sheriffs Deputy Shayne Foote spotted the vehicle in the Five Points area where the two men and woman were detained. Because Walker had methamphetamine in the car, deputies were able to search the vehicle and found two of the victims credit cards along with her other stolen items, the release says. MUGGINGContinued From 1ABY SARAH LOFTUSLCPD officer Connie Hightower accompanied an 82-year-old mugging victim to the hospital Thursday and stayed with her until she was taken to Gainesville for surgery, LCPD public information officer Craig Strickland said. While Hightower was at the hospital with the victim, the woman said she was worried about her car getting left at the mall and was also concerned about her two dogs, he said. Hightower drove the womans car back to her house with officer Jason Herrera, and then the officers walked and fed her dogs for her, Strickland said. They were just trying to help a woman in need, he said.Just trying to help Smokin good time at BBQ Fest Photos by EMILY BUCHANAN/ Lake City ReporterJoshua, 7, Andrew, 3, and Matthew Day, 5, pose for a picture as they stand on an excavator at the Touch a Truck exhibit at the Sixth Annual Smokin Pig BBQ Fest.

Taylor said she has been in Kiwanis Club for 18 years and oversees nine Kiwanis Club districts throughout the North Florida area. Each district has a Key Club, which is a club for high school students to par ticipate in community service projects throughout the nation. She said there are 20,000 Key Clubs in Florida. Taylor Paddock, 17, a senior at Keystone Heights Junior/Senior High School and Key Club Lieutenant Governor of Division 4, said she has made friends all over the country during nation-wide events and community service projects. “I’ve learned to focus on the world outside of Keystone Heights,” Paddock said. “I’ve learned to focus on the bigger picture. Through the club, I’ve found a love for volunteering that I wouldn’t have found any where else.” Paddock said at the con ference on Saturday, the club members planned to work on leadership skills, introduce new members to Key Club and participate in a communi ty service project by making cards for soldiers that will be sent in care packages over seas. Dr. Michelle Boatwright, a Key Club advisor at Cambridge Prep Academy, said this is the first year the academy has par ticipated in the club, but said she believes it will be a great opportunity for another high school in Lake City to become involved in the program. “One of the things we’re doing today is helping our stu dent officers learn what they have to do in their roles, espe cially since this is something new to us,” Boatwright said. “And we’re learning about dif ferent service opportunities.” Taylor Little, 17, a senior and Key Club president at Cambridge Prep Academy, said she joined Key Club because not only does it look good on her resume, she said it allows students like herself an oppor tunity to become involved with the community. “Going through the program has really helped me through my senior year,” she said. “It’s helped while applying to col leges.

From staff reports Lake City Reporter’s Punt for a Pickup will see two lucky fans at Friday’s CHS football game have a chance to punt a football into the back of a truck and win a 2014 Ford F-150. Fans who attend Columbia High Tigers football home games this season will have a chance to have their name ran domly selected for one punt attempt. One fan at each home game will have the chance to punt a football 35 yards into the bed of the pick up. If the ball goes into the back of the truck, in the air, and stays there, the lucky fan will win the truck. Because the kickoff event for the promotion, at Columbia’s Sept. 5 home opener, was washed out due to to rain, two lucky fans will get a chance to punt for a pickup on Friday. “Severe weather washed out our punt attempt at the first home game, so we are excited to announce we will have two punt attempts this Friday at the Tigers home game,” said Todd Wilson, Lake City Reporter Publisher. “All fans have to do is come to the game, their game ticket enters them in the drawing, and they could get selected to Punt for a Pickup.” Rountree Moore Ford once again is a partner in the Reporter’s promo tion. A portion of the pro ceeds from the contest will be donated to the CHS STRIPES total person aca demic 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 vis ible parked in front of business sponsors of the contest around Lake City during the two-month foot ball season contest period. Football fans can check out the truck on game nights parked at the north end of Tiger Stadium. “I want to thank all of our sponsors and the com munity for really getting behind this promotion that benefits Principal Todd Widergren’s CHS STRIPES total student program,” Wilson said. “Support the Tigers, come to the game, and support the STRIPES program.” Remaining CHS home football games are sched uled for Oct. 10, Oct. 31, and Nov. 7. The Punt for a Pickup contest is brought to you by the Lake City Reporter and co-sponsored by Rountree Moore Ford, Florida Gateway College, S&S Food Stores, Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center, Foreman & McInnis Attorneys, Peoples State Bank, North Florida Pharmacy, Mobile Mania, Dees-Parrish Family Funeral Home, and The Wheeler Agency. LCR’s ‘Punt’ continues Friday STAFFLake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson and Advertising Director Theresa Westberry are ready to give away a 2014 Ford F-150 if a lucky football fan who attends the CHS home game Friday night can punt a football 35 yards into the back of the truck during the halftime event. By AVAYLN HUNTERSpecial to the Reporter FORT WHITE — Becoming a teach er may begin with getting the appropri ate education and cer tificates, but it doesn't stop there. “It's just the beginning,” said social sciences teach er Jack Gherna, who is in his second year at Fort White High School. “When you're in your first year, you start finding out about all the things you didn't know you needed to find out. This year I understand what's expected of me much better, but I'm still evolving as a teacher.” Part of that evolution is adapting to a whole new subject and student pop ulation. A middle school language arts teacher last year, Gherna is now teach ing three social sciences classes to three different grades: U.S. history to eighth graders, Advanced Placement human geography to ninth graders, and world history to tenth graders. As a history major in college, Gherna is enjoying the change, but he admits that it does present a challenge. “The subjects aren't as different as you might think,” he said. “They both require the ability to develop a disciplined way of thinking. And both lend themselves to reading and writing for purpose.” Gherna has found that there’s much more to teach than just subject matter, too. “I’m trying to teach all my stu dents better critical thinking skills,” he said. “Sometimes you have good information sources that happen to have a strong bias one way or another, and I want them to learn how to iden tify bias and filter it without throwing out needed information. I also want them to learn empathy for people who were brought up differently than they were and to question why things are different in different places instead of saying, ‘that’s just the way it is.’” Learning alongside students Gherna

FSU wins in overtimeBy KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — With Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston watching from the side-line, No. 1 Florida State come back to beat No. 22 Clemson 23-17 in over-time on Karlos Williams’ 12-yard touchdown run Saturday night. Winston was suspended for the game against No. 22 Clemson after making “offensive and vulgar” comments earlier this week on campus. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney declined to attempt a 33-yard field goal on the first posses-sion of overtime and Adam Choice was stuffed for no gain on fourth-and-1. Two plays later, Karlos Williams bounced outside and went untouched into the end zone. Sean Maguire made the first start of his career with Winston sidelined. He was regularly pressured by a loaded Clemson defensive line and completed 21 of 39 passes for 305 yards with two interceptions and a 74-yard touchdown to Rashad Greene to tie it at 17 with 6:04 left in the fourth.1BSPORTS CHS dominant in 37-0 win over Terry Parker HighBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE — Some games are contests and oth-ers should be title exhibi-tions. Columbia showed why in a 37-0 thumping of Terry Parker High on Friday. The Tigers attempted only one designed run in the first half as head coach Brian Allen wanted to work on the passing game against live competition. “We knew that we were good in the running game,” Allen said. “We have to be better in the passing game. We wanted to see what it’s like against live competition on the road. There’s going to come a game where we’re down and need it. We did a pretty good job of it coming out the gate.” Columbia connected on its first two passes with Jake Thomas finding Caleb Carswell for 27 yards and Kelvin Jonas for a four-yard touchdown to start the game. Following Hunter Houston’s extra point, the Tigers had a 7-0 lead. From there, the offense had questionable results in the passing game. Still, Allen didn’t turn to his best player in running back Lonnie Underwood, because he knew the Tigers could dom-inate in that fashion. Underwood only had one designed run in the first half. He ended up with three carries, but two came after recovering fumbles from botched snaps. Columbia didn’t score another offensive touch-down in the first half, but Roger Cray gave the Tigers a two-touchdown edge with a 37-yard punt return at the 11:02 mark of the second quarter to build a 14-0 lead. Following Brant Nelson’s punt that pinned the Braves at their own four-yard line, Terry Parker took a sack instead of punting to give the Tigers a 16-0 lead head-ing into the half. In the second half, the philosophy turned from prac-tice to putting the Braves away. And the philosophy was based in Underwood. The senior rushed the ball twice and gave the Tigers a 23-0 lead following a 55-yard touchdown with 11:05 remaining in the third quarter. Then, Cray returned to work. CHS continued on 2BIndians run over Timberwolves, 37-7By SHAYNE MORGANSpecial to the ReporterTALLAHASSEE — Fort White High went on the road and played up in classi-fication team against Chiles High’s 7-A football team. Both teams played the elements as a steady rain drenched the Timberwolves field. Neither could stop the Indians as they rolled to a 37-7 win. The first quarter saw the Indians and Timberwolves complete long drives, but both teams threw interceptions to end their progress. The fireworks started in the second quarter as Chiles dropped back to punt and it was blocked and returned for a touchdown to give the Indians a 7-0 lead after Brandon Shrum connected on the first of four PATs. Shrum also con-verted a 27-yard FG to give the Indians a 10-0 halftime lead. Fort White received the opening kickoff of the second half and that’s when the Indians began rolling. DJ Jackson completed a 35-yard pass to Shannon Showers for a touchdown and again Shrum converted on the kick to make the game 17-0. Coach Jackson was happy with the passing game. “They were giving us the passing game tonight” Jackson said, “If we connect on one or two the confi-dence will come.” Later in the third quarter, Jackson hit a 42-yard pass to Donald Robinson, which would be the first of two touchdowns. Robinson scored another later on on a 64-yard run. Jackson was excited about the his play. “(Robinson) came up big time for us tonight,” Jackson said. The lone score for Chiles came on a one-yard run by quarterback Landon Simpkins. Jackson connected on a touchdown pass to Blair Chapman from 23 yards to make the score 30-7, and Robinson’s 64-yard run SHAYNE MORGAN /Special to the ReporterChiles High’s Winslow Robinson eludes Fort White High defenders early in Friday’s game.

Cray-z performanceBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comOn most nights, when a cornerback is noticed, it’s not a good thing for that player. On Friday, it was the opposite as cornerback Roger Cray found the end zone twice to help propel the Tigers to a 37-0 victory against Terry Parker High in Jacksonville. His big night came at his other position — punt returner. Cray provided one of the only highlights of the first half as he gave the Tigers a 14-0 lead following a 37-yard punt return for a touchdown. The intimidation of Cray having another chance to touch the ball deep in Braves’ territory prompt-ed Terry Parker to take a safety to end the first half rather than give Cray another chance at return-ing a punt. In the second half, the Braves probably wish they followed that same strat-egy. Cray was kicked to early in the third quarter and this time he raced 61 yards for his second score of the game. It gave the Tigers a 30-0 lead. His performance came while not missing a snap on the defense and helping the Tigers hold the Braves to only three completions on the night for a total of 20 yards. “Roger was just being Roger,” Columbia head coach Brian Allen said after the game. “We knew that we had a chance to bring a couple back against an infe-rior opponent. He has the ability to make things hap-pen, whether its at corner or returning. He’s a special talent and when the oppo-nents present him with an opportunity, he’s going to take advantage of it most of the time. He just has to be consistent.” Cray’s only mistake came when he fielded a punt late in the game, perhaps think-ing of the end zone for a third time and muffed the opportunity. Still, Cray made an impact on the scoreboard in a standout game for the corner Allen calls the best in the state. “I made the first two plays, and I was wanting another,” Cray said. “Earlier, I had heard the call, the hole was available, and I just hit it and scored. It felt good to help the team and put points on the board.” He raced 61 yards and scored his second touch-down on a punt return. Underwood added the nail in the coffin with a 33-yard touchdown run to bring out the running clock with 9;20 remaining in the fourth quarter. “We looked at tape and knew that we could take advantage with the run,” Allen said. “But again, our goal is to get better every week, and I’m still not sure we’ve done that on offense.” Defensively, Allen was ready to give praise after a shutout performance and a third-straight week of making crucial plays. In all, Columbia came up with eight sacks. Alex Doughty led the way with three in the contest. Allen heaped praise at Doughty and defen-sive coordinator Dennis Dotson’s side in general. “He’s a guy that has commited and he was our player of the week last week,” Allen said. “He came up big tonight as well. The defense wins champi-onships, so we need to con-tinue playing that way.”

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Nicki NewmansBy JOHN ZENORAP Sports WriterTUSCALOOSA, Ala. — For two-plus quarters, the Florida Gators were oppor-tunistic enough to be dead even with No. 3 Alabama on the scoreboard if not the stat sheet. The Gators’ sputtering offense and a defense that yielded a program-worst 645 yards resulted in a 42-21 defeat Saturday in a game they were hoping to turn into a statement. Florida (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) had converted three of Alabama’s four turnovers into touchdowns, includ-ing Keanu Neal’s 49-yard return of a fumble. “We have to go back again and evaluate where we are,” Gators coach Will Muschamp said. “The execution is not where it needs to be. We missed a deep ball to (Demarcus Robinson) early in the game where he got on top of a guy. (We) had a dropped third down. Against a team like that, you have to make plays when you have the oppor-tunities, and we didn’t do that. “We didn’t run the ball efficiently enough, we didn’t stay on the field on third down and we need to go back and evaluate the decisions we made going into the game and during the game.” Blake Sims threw for 445 yards for the Tide (4-0, 1-0), the second-best passing performance in school his-tory, and four touchdowns. Amari Cooper caught 10 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns. Alabama committed 11 penalties for 80 yards and four turnovers that turned into 21 points for the Gators. “The guys are really upset,” Gators center Max Garcia said. “We had a lot of opportunities and we didn’t capitalize. I think they just took advantage of the advantages that we gave them. We had some turnovers ourselves that really hurt.” Sims threw touchdown passes of 87 yards to Kenyan Drake on the opening play and 79 to Cooper later in the first quarter. Still, 400 yards for an Alabama offense known more in the past for bruis-ing running games? “I didn’t think it was possible,” Sims said. The previous high against a Florida defense was Nebraska’s 629 yards in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl. Alabama’s Derrick Henry gained 111 yards on 20 rushes. The Gators’ offense wasn’t much more successful than its defense. Florida’s Jeff Driskel was harassed and ineffec-tive passing. He was 9-of-28 passing for 93 yards and was intercepted twice while the offense produced just 200 yards. Driskel did run for 59 yards, but it got so bad that Florida legend Emmitt Smith called for the quar-terback’s benching on Twitter. Robinson, who had 15 catches in an overtime win over Kentucky, was held to two receptions for 14 yards. Florida failed in its bid for a statement-making performance after a 4-8 season and to perhaps lift Muschamp, whose men-tor Nick Saban was on the opposite sideline, from the hot seat. The Tide’s blun-ders kept the game from being even more lopsided. “We had our chances and we didn’t do it,” Muschamp said. “That’s the frustrat-ing thing.” It was all Alabama after Driskel’s 14-yard touch-down run tied the game at 21-21 early in the third quar-ter. That came two plays after Neiron Ball got his left hand on a Sims throw at the line and Antonio Morrison scooped it up for a 20-yard return. All three of the Gators’ touchdowns came after turnovers. “Obviously everybody that watched the game could tell that there were some things that we did extremely well and some things that were pretty sloppy,” Saban said. “But I thought in the second half we really controlled the game.” Alabama answered the tying score with a 16-play drive sustained despite two penalties and a sack. Henry dodged a couple of defenders for a 29-yard catch on third-and-23 and scored on a 3-yard run on the next play with 5:27 left in the third quarter. “We didn’t make the plays and they did,” Driskel said. “We didn’t get it done. It’s a matter of execution. “It was a game of big plays. Alabama had a lot more than us.” The Tide did get a scare when Sims went to the locker room after bruising his right shoulder on a 24-yard run late in the third quarter but he did play again.Florida can’t stay with No. 3 Bama, loses 42-21 First two Gator TDs were from Bama turnovers. ‘We had a lot of opportunities and we didn’t capitalize. I think they just took advantage of the advantages that we gave them.’ — Max Garcia, Gators center

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 T his past Saturday evening, I experienced one of the wildest fishing bites of my life. While fishing the mouth of the Manatee River with Capt. Jason Stock and my brother, Jon Chapman, we had no less than 90 minutes of nonstop snook and redfish action with big trout mixed in. What made it so special was the sheer veracity of the schools of redfish. The trip started off as a turf and surf with a wake up call at 4 a.m. in Lake City, Florida, and a golf tournament at The Terra Ceia Golf Club at 8:30 a.m. The team consisted of my dad, brother, mom, and my mom’s friend, and we had a great time while shooting a 47. The course is designed for Northern transplant blue hairs, so it was shorter than Vanilla Ice’s musical career. My personal highlight was driving it over the 290 yard Par 4, and hitting it off the roof of the maintenance warehouse. It was a mile out of bounds, but I’ve never cared about playing golf “in bounds.” After finishing our round, we then met up with Captain Jason Stock at the first ramp on Anna Maria Island. After loading up on bait in just 2 casts, the custom 23-foot Hanson throttled towards Egmont Key. We started wading, and within minutes I hooked a crystal clear 30” plus snook. After a good fight that she went airborne several times, it ended with her rubbing through the leader. The next hour had us walking through stingray and jellyfish paradise I’m going to guess that there were 17 billion in just that 1 mile stretch we walked. We didn’t catch much else, and had a storm blow up on us, so we hunkered down and drove through the center. It looked like it might clear up, so we went for more bait, and in one cast caught more than enough bait for a small army. Luckily the storm cleared out, the winds died, and all of the smart people had gone back to their houses. Because I don’t fish Bradenton very often, I wanted to make the most of this small window, so we headed towards a flat that almost always has life. Jason and I cleared the rail with a converted laundry basket (they make the best bait keepers) full of hundreds of just caught white bait. We waded and threw chummers, aka, bait that you give a little love squeeze to before you throw them out to entice the game fish. Within 15 minutes I caught a nice slot snook and two slot redfish, and it looked like we might be in for a banner bite. It never materialized. Off in the distance, my brother – who stayed in the boat noticed what looked like very nervous water. Fish were pushing wakes in 1 to 2 feet on a sandbar, and I had the sneaky feeling it was big redfish. They were chasing schools of bait, and to keep up with their quickness we began wading in pursuit. The first time we got close, we could see them coming out of the water trying to eat mullet and other bait. It was indeed big redfish, hungry and eating everything in their path. When we were within casting range, it was only a matter of getting our whitebait into the school and a triple hookup occurred instantly. Trying to keep them interested and close by, Capt. Stock would throw out handfuls of chum, more whitebait, and the redfish would chase the baits all the way back to our feet creating an unbelievable showcase of the food chain! They would come out of the water then run into our feet, anything to eat as they were aggressively tracking down their next meal. When a redfish school would move on looking for more food, the snook moved in. It was nonstop snook for a bit before we would see another school of redfish pop up in the near distance. We would wade to them, repeat triple hookup, chum, and so on until the sunset. It was the most incredible 90 minutes of flat fishing I’ve ever experienced. The redfish schools were literally feeding right at our feet, and because we were wading, the action was that much more intense. The video we were able to shoot with my brother’s collection of GoPros will soon be featured on the Outdoors360 YouTube channel. It’s safe to say I’ll be re-living this magical evening many more times via YouTube!Q Rob Chapman IV is a tournament-winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com S ports tourism continues to be a major factor in the Columbia County economy and last years increase in the bed tax is generating more funds for the Columbia County Tourist Development Fund. In fact, indications are that this years bed tax will generate a record amount of money. We are on track for the highest bed tax collection ever, said Lori Regan, TDC marketing director. The one cent increase and improved economy are the reasons. We are definitely seeing more visi tors and definitely seeing more international visi tors. According to county financial reports, in calen dar year 2012 $633,423 was collected in bed tax rev enue. In 2013 that amount increased to $728,631. Thus far in 2014 the bed tax has generated an estimated $781,933 and in 2015 the bed tax is pro jected to generate around $850,000. According to TDC reports, in July bed tax col lections were $81,023, an increase of $6,643, or nine percent, more than bed tax dollars collected in July 2013. Thus far the total bed tax collection for 2014 is up roughly 20 percent, $94,497 over 2013. This bed tax collection of over $81,000 is sports tournament driven, Regan said, noting that in July the Southside Sports Complex hosted at least three major tournaments, which brought additional cus tomers to local hotels and motels. A great portion of this can be attributed to tournament activity, how ever, an awful lot of it can be attributed to summer 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter Week of Sunday, September 21-27, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

TOURISM continued on 2C Astronauts getting 3-D printer at space station By MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace Writer CAPE CANAVERAL The 3-D printing boom is about to invade space. NASA is sending a 3-D printer to the International Space Station in hopes that astronauts will be able to one day fix their spacecraft by cranking out spare parts on the spot. The printer, made by a Northern California company called Made in Space, is among more than 5,000 pounds of space station cargo thats stuffed into a SpaceX Dragon capsule for a pre-dawn liftoff Saturday. Besides real-time replacement parts at the station, NASA envisions astronauts, in the decades ahead, making entire habitats at faraway destinations like Mars. If were really going to set up shop on Mars, we have to do this, Jeff Sheehy, NASAs senior technologist, said Friday. We really cant afford to bring everything we need for an indefinite amount of time. Well need to get to the point where we can make things that we need as we go. At Kennedy Space Center, the company showed off a number of objects made by its 3-D printers. On display was a scaleddown model of an air filter that the Apollo 13 astronauts devised to survive their aborted moon mission in 1970. It took five END OF SUMMER BASH Tuesday, September 23, 5-7:30pm at Phish Heads, Lake City, FL Networking, Speaker, Door Prizes, 2015 vehicles FUN!! See our Flyer Insert on Sunday!

hours to print the model in a lab. SpaceX is making the supply run for NASA, the same California company that just won a huge contract to deliver U.S. astronauts to the space station. Its Falcon 9 rocket with an unmanned Dragon was scheduled to blast off at 2:14 a.m., although rainy weather threatened to interfere. Other Dragon payloads high on the cool or curious factor: a mouse X-ray machine and 20 mice; 30 fruit flies expected to have a population explosion in orbit, metal plat-ing samples for a private research effort to build stronger golf clubs, and a $30 million instrument to measure the surface wind over Earth’s oceans and improve hurri-cane forecasting. The small 3-D printer on board is a demo unit meant to churn out sample items made from the same type of plastic used for Lego bricks. It was designed to operate safely in weightlessness inside a sealed chamber. The printing process is the same as on Earth, creating an object with layer upon layer of plastic. Once returned to Earth, the little 3-D creations will be “pulled and twisted and peeled and subjected to a lot of tests to determine the quality of the parts,” said Sheehy. Combined with efforts on the ground to make 3-D rocket parts out of metal — even entire engines — the space dem-onstrations “will give us confidence that the stuff we make by this method, even though it’s new and innovative” does, indeed, have the durability of traditional parts, he said. The space 3-D printer is barely a foot tall, 9 inches wide and 14 inches deep, counting the knobs on the front. A commercial 3-D printer — twice the size and dubbed “big brother” — will fly up next year, followed by a grinding machine for recycling discarded 3-D pieces. “This is a huge, huge time for us,” said Brad Kohlenberg, business development engineer for Made in Space. The Mountain View, California, company has a staff of fewer than 25; most of them traveled to Cape Canaveral for Saturday’s launch attempt. This is the fifth space station shipment for SpaceX, counting the 2012 test flight. The space agency also is paying Orbital Sciences Corp. of Virginia to make peri-odic deliveries. SpaceX, along with Boeing, won huge contracts Tuesday for delivering U.S. astronauts to the space station beginning in 2017. That will enable NASA to stop relying so heavily on Russia, currently the only space station partner able to send crews up and down. The Hawthorne, California, company founded by billionaire Elon Musk is shoot-ing for its first crewed launch in 2016. The flight test crew will be a mix of NASA and SpaceX employees, confirmed Hans Koenigsmann, vice president of mission assurance for SpaceX. He said the com-pany is still working out the details on whom to send up. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21-27, 20142CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY TOURISMContinued From 1C 3-D PRINTERContinued From 1C Name That Company@ZXd\kfc`]\`e(0-)`e JZiXekfe#G\eejpcmXe`X#Xjk_\ K_i`]k;;`jZflek:\ek\i%@kffb dpZlii\ekeXd\`e(0-/Xe[XdefnXkfgL%J%[il^jkfi\Z_X`e# n`k_dfi\k_Xe+#,''cfZXk`fej`e *(jkXk\j%@Yfl^_kk_\9iffbjXe[ E:Xe[_flj\ `kjjkfi\j$n`k_`e$jkfi\j%@m\i\[\j`^e\[ dXepcfZXk`fej`ekfN\cce\jjjkfi\j% DpXeelXci\m\el\kfgj),Y`cc`fe%@ek_\ (0/'j#dXeppfle^g\fgc\d`^_k_Xm\]fle[ dpk`Zb\ijpdYfchl`k\Zffc%N_fXd@6Know the answer? Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! That’s scary stuff. One way many can help pay for retirement is through tax-advantaged plans at work, such as 401(k)s. But a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics survey found that only 65 percent of employees in pri-vate industry had access to retirement plans at work, and of those, only 75 percent used them. Worse still, per a Plan Sponsor Council of America study, the average employee contribution to 401(k)s and profit-sharing plans in 2012 was 6.8 percent. That’s a lot better than nothing, but for many folks it won’t be enough to live well off in retire-ment. (You can contribute more than $17,000 to a 401(k) in 2014, and $5,500 to an IRA — plus an extra $1,000 for those 50 and up.) Meanwhile, many taxpayers don’t know whether a tax deduction or tax credit is more valuable. A deduction permits you to reduce your taxable income so that you pay less in taxes. A credit, meanwhile, reduces your tax bill dollar-for-dollar. A $1,000 credit lops a full $1,000 off your tax bill.

(NYSE: F) is firing on lots of cylinders, with a dra-matic turnaround in North America pushing the stock up nearly tenfold from its early 2009 lows. It has plenty of short-term business catalysts: a slew of new vehicle launches in its money-driving North American market, significantly lower debt and pension obligations, Europe’s economic recovery, and potential dividend increases. Over the longer term, it can also benefit substantially from international expansion and a turnaround for its Lincoln brand. Sales in India are modest, but they recently grew by 27 percent, year over year. Ford is surging in the world’s largest automotive market, China, too, with sales through July rising 33 percent year over year and 15 new models debuting by the end of next year. Ford expects its Asia-Pacific region to account for nearly 40 percent of company revenues by the end of the decade — compared to under 10 percent today — and it’s investing billions to expand there. Meanwhile, Europe recently delivered a profit after losing billions in the past few years, and Ford plans to introduce 25 new models there in the next five years. Ford is a stable, well-run company with a strong balance sheet, com-petitive products and big opportuni-ties to increase profits overseas. It recently yielded 2.9 percent. (The Motley Fool has recommended Ford and owns shares of it.) TheMotley Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich 8jbk_\=ffc Dp;ldY\jk@em\jkd\ek Contrary ThinkingMy dumbest investment? Investing all of my 403(b) retirement-plan contributions, along with my employer’s matching dollars, in an S&P 500 index fund from day one of full-time employment. It was literally a no-brainer, so that’s “dumb” in the ironic sense. My “best” investment was investing in a company named Enron. You may have heard of it. I lost a mere 99.9 percent of my money on that one. But I learned a very valuable lesson in hubris and the value of diversification, so it was actually a very good thing when all was said and done. — Mike, Ann Arbor, Michigan The Fool Responds: That’s great thinking. Many smart people with seemingly smart investing strate-gies underperform the overall stock market, while anyone can easily earn the market’s return via simple broad-market index funds. You’re right about Enron, too, as some of our best lessons are learned the hard way. Interestingly, and sadly, a lot of Enron employees lost most of their savings because they’d invested their retirement-plan money in company stock. That’s putting too many eggs in one bas-ket. The S&P 500 offers diversifica-tion, encompassing 500 companies.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

By DAVID ESPO and DONNA CASSATAAssociated PressWASHINGTON In the heat of an election campaign, Congress cleared the way for the U.S. military to train and equip Syrian rebels for a war against Islamic state militants on Thursday, reluctant ratification of a new strategy that President Barack Obama outlined scarcely a week ago. The 78-22 Senate vote sent Obama legislation that also provides funding for the government after the end of the budget year on Sept. 30, eliminating any threat of a shutdown. The House approved the bill on Wednesday. The measure split Republicans and Democrats alike, and cre-ated new fault lines for this fall's elections for control of the Senate as well as the 2016 race for the White House. "Intervention that destabilizes the Middle East is a mistake. And yet, here we are again, wading into a civil war," said Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. laying down a marker for Republican presidential primaries still more than a year distant. Sen. Mark Begich, an Alaska Democrat in a diffi-cult re-election campaign, said, "I disagree with my president" on the wisdom of having the U.S. mili-tary become involved. "It is time for the Arab coun-tries to step up get over their regional differenc-es" and be more aggres-sive in the fight against terrorists," he said. For a second straight day, the administration dispatched top-ranking officials to reassure law-makers and the public that no U.S. ground combat operation was in the offing. Obama made the same promise in an address to the nation eight days ago laying out his new policy. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told one House committee that Obama "is not going to order American combat ground forces into that area." Appearing before a dif-ferent panel, Secretary of State John Kerry said the administration under-stands the danger of a "slippery slope." The term was widely used a half-century ago as the United States slid ever deeper into a Vietnam war that eventually left more than 50,000 U.S. troops dead. Obama's general plan is to have U.S. troops train Syrian rebels at camps in Saudi Arabia, a process that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said could take a year. Additionally, the presi-dent already has said he will use existing author-ity to have the Pentagon deploy airstrikes against Islamic fighters in Syria as well as in Iraq. Hagel said the president received a detailed plan for opera-tions in Syria during a visit Wednesday to U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida, and was reviewing it. From halfway around the world came a chill-ing reminder from mili-tants who already have overrun parts of Syria and Iraq and beheaded three Westerners. This time, the Islamic State group released a video showing a British journalist who said he was their prisoner. In Washington, leaders in both political parties supported the Senate legislation, draining the debate of all suspense. Asked about approving Obama's plan in the wake of the war in Iraq, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, "Iraq was a mis-take. I was misled and I voted wrong. But this is not Iraq, this is a totally different thing." Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell also favored the legisla-tion, yet said it must be followed by a top-to-bot-tom review of the admin-istration's global military strategy. Senate liberals split. Sen. Bernard Sanders, a Vermont independent, conceded the threat posed by forces seek-ing an Islamic State. But he said countries in the Middle East most threat-ened had not yet joined the international coalition that Obama is assem-bling. "Not only are countries in the region not step-ping up in the fight ... but believe it or not sev-eral of these Gulf states are empowering" Islamic State forces as well as al-Qaida allied groups with financial contribu-tions, he said. But Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., said Obama pro-posed a moderate, mid-dle course between doing nothing in response to a terrorist threat and refighting the Iraq war. "Every civilized person has to stand up against this," she said. While Democrats expressed fears that the legislation could lead the nation back into a war, some Republicans were skeptical that Obama's strategy was strong enough to prevail. As a result, the legis-lation provided a narrow grant of authority that will expire on Dec. 11. It specifically stops short of approving the deploy-ment of U.S. forces "into hostilities or into situa-tions where hostilities are clearly indicated by the circumstances." The expiration date means Congress will return to the issue in a postelection session scheduled for mid-No-vember. The overall spending bill will prevent a gov-ernment shutdown like the one that occurred a year ago, when House Republicans tried to elim-inate funding for Obama's health care program. It finesses yet anoth-er issue that divides the GOP, renewing until next June the Export-Import Bank, which helps finance purchases of U.S. exports. Tea party lawmakers want to abolish the agency, while business-oriented Republicans support it. The vote in the House on Wednesday giving Obama authority to train rebels was 273-156. More Democrats, 85, voted to defy the pres-ident than Republicans, who cast 71 votes against the policy advanced by a commander in chief they distrust. 4C WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2014 BUSINESS LAKE CITY REPORTER By ANNE D'INNOCENZIOAP Retail WriterNEW YORK Home Depot said Thursday that 56 million debit and credit cards are estimated to have been breached in a data theft between April and September at its stores in the U.S. and Canada. That makes it the second-largest breach for a U.S. retailer on record, behind TJX Cos.'s theft of 90 million records, disclosed in 2007, and ahead of Target's pre-Christmas 2013 breach that compromised 40 million credit and debit cards. Home Depot, the nation's largest home improvement retailer, said that the malware used in the data breach has been eliminated. It said there was no evidence that debit PIN numbers were compromised or that the breach affected stores in Mexico or customers who shopped online at Homedepot. com. It said it has also completed a "major" payment security project that provides enhanced encryption of customers' payment data in the company's U.S. stores. But unlike Target's breach, which sent the retailer's sales and profits falling as wary shoppers went elsewhere, customers seem to have stuck with Atlanta-based Home Depot. Still, the breach's ultimate cost to the company remains unknown. Greg Melich, an analyst at International Strategy & Investment Group LLC, estimates the costs will run in the several hundred million dollars, similar to Target's breach. "This is a massive breach, and a lot of people are affected," said John Kindervag, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research. But he added, "Home Depot is very lucky that Target happened because there is this numbness factor." Customers appear to be growing used to breaches, following a string of them this past year, including at Michaels, SuperValu and Neiman Marcus. Home Depot might have also benefited from the disclosure of the breach coming in September, months after the spring season, which is the busiest time of year for home improvement. And unlike Target, which has a myriad of competitors, analysts note that home-improvement shoppers don't have many options. Moreover, Home Depot's customer base is different from Target's. Nearly 40 percent of Home Depot's sales come from professional and contractor services. Those buyers tend to be fiercely loyal and shop a couple of times a week for supplies. Home Depot on Thursday confirmed its sales-growth estimates for the fiscal year and said it expects to earn $4.54 per share in fiscal 2014, up 2 cents from its prior guidance. The company's fiscal 2014 outlook includes estimates for the cost to investigate the data breach, providing credit monitoring services to its customers, increasing call center staffing and paying legal and professional services. However, the profit guidance doesn't include potential yet-to-be determined losses related to the breach. The company said it has not yet estimated costs beyond those included in the guidance issued Thursday. Those costs could include liabilities related to payment card networks for reimbursements of credit card fraud and card reissuance costs. It could also include future civil litigation and governmental investigations and enforcement proceedings. "We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and anxiety this has caused, and want to reassure them that they will not be liable for fraudulent charges," Home Depot's chairman and CEO, Frank Blake, said in a statement. "From the time this investigation began, our guiding principal has been to put our customers first, and we will continue to do so." The breach at Home Depot was first reported on Sept. 2 by Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security, a website that focuses on cybersecurity. Target's high-profile breach pushed banks, retailers and card companies to increase security by speeding the adoption of microchips in U.S. credit and debit cards. Supporters say chip cards are safer, because unlike magnetic strip cards that transfer a credit card number when they are swiped at a point-of-sale terminal, chip cards use a one-time code that moves between the chip and the retailer's register. The result is a transfer of data that is useless to anyone except the parties involved. Chip cards are also nearly impossible to copy, experts say. Target has been overhauling its security department and systems and is accelerating its $100 million plan to roll out chip-based credit card technology in all of its nearly 1,800 stores. Home Depot said it will be activating chip-enabled checkout terminals at all of its U.S. stores by the end of the year.Home Depot breach affected 56 million debit, credit cards Senate votes to support Obama on rebel aid Iraq was a mistake.

Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader FDAs food safety rules revisedBy MARY CLARE JALONICKAssociated PressWASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration on Friday revised sweeping food safety rules proposed last year after farmers complained that the regulations could hurt business. The new proposals would relax water quality standards and allow farmers to harvest crops sooner after using raw manure as fertilizer. The final rules are due in 2015, and the FDA has been haggling over how to write them since Congress passed a food safety law in 2010. Regulators say balancing the need for tighter food safety standards after major food-borne illness outbreaks in spinach, eggs, peanuts and cantaloupe against the needs of farmers who are new to such regulations has been a challenge. Michael Taylor, FDAs deputy commissioner for foods, says the agency is trying to achieve the goal of food safety in a practical way. The rules originally proposed in January 2013 would require farmers to take new precautions against contamination, making sure workers hands are washed, irrigation water is clean and that animals stay out of fields, among other things.

W eeds can be defined as unwanted plants or plants growing out of place. Understanding why weeds are present in a lawn is an important step in selecting the best weed control strategy for your lawn. There are different classifications of weeds, so weed identification is also necessary before developing a strategy. See UF Weed Management: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep141. Annual weeds are plants which will only grow for one season and then die. During that short life, however, they grow, flower, and produce lots of viable seeds before they die. Those seeds lie in wait for their chance to germinate the following year. Each year the popu lation of weeds can grow exponentially in size as the seed bank increases. Cool weather annual seeds will begin ger minating here in early October when the night temperatures drop to 55 or 60 degrees for several nights in a row. They will LIFE Sunday, September 21, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert Bridges754-0428rbridges@lakecityreporter.com T he Athabasca Glacier is just one of the glaciers located in the Canadian Rockies inside Jasper National Park. The gla cier currently recedes at a rate of about 16 feet per year and has receded more than 1 mile in the past 125 years. Definitely slow moving, it moves down from the Icefield — where we just hap pened to be — at a rate of several centimeters per day. Currently it is approximately 3.7 miles long, covers an area of 2.3 square miles, and is measured to be between 300–980 feet thick and is the most visited glacier in North America. My first experience with the Athabasca Glacier was when we stopped along the Icefields Parkway at the Athabasca Falls. They were amazing. We walked along the trail to get to the top of the falls and when I turned the corner, I saw a rainbow. It was the highlight of the morning — all bold and strong, yet very pret ty. The Athabasca River flows from the Athabasca Glacier all along the park way and is milky white in color. This is from the rock sediment that col lects in the water as the ice melts and flows down the glacier. We followed the river through the park as it flows alongside the road. At the Icefield’s Interpretive Center, we purchased tickets to ride a snow explorer onto the glacier for a new adventure. We first boarded a bus to the landing spot along the glacier edge, then onto the snow explorer. The explorer has tires almost human size: five feet tall and about three feet wide with little psi, so that they can withstand not only the inclines but also have less impact on the ice. They also don’t move very fast but are efficient for the terrain. We had about 20 min utes to spend walking around on the glacier. Good thing we had our hiking shoes on from ear lier to navigate the ice. We got pictures in some spots where the ice was melting and you could see the water flowing out of the ice. On the surface the ice looks white, but underneath it’s a bright blue. In fact, you could stand in some spots and look through the ice it was so clear, yet it could hold you. At one point, we wanted to touch the water to see how cold it was and I wanted a taste. I figure it was clean gla cier water, right? And it was — good and refresh ing. This was definitely an experience of a life time. Sort of made up for the dog sledding on the glacier that got canceled on our Alaska trip. Very cool indeed it was, for us to look back up the mountain and spot that glacier and know we had just walked on it. I love all of the expe riences I’ve had travel ing and this was one of the best. Not too many people can say they have walked across an ancient glacier in the middle of an ice field. I highly recommend it for anyone heading to Alberta, Canada, between the towns of Banff and Jasper.Exploring the great AthabascaTRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton Q Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@u.edu WEEDS continued on 4D By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.com A longtime local prose cutor turned University of Florida law professor has shown the world a side of Abraham Lincoln most never see: trial lawyer. “Abraham Lincoln’s Most Famous Case: The Almanac Trial” is a detailed account that hasn’t been told accurately until now, says George R. “Bob” Dekle Sr. Dekle, who’s lived in Lake City since 1961, served as assistant state attorney in the Third Judicial Circuit for 30 years before joining the faculty at Levin College of Law at UF in 2006. He successfully prosecuted serial killer Ted Bundy for the murder of a Lake City school girl. The Almanac Trial, also known as People v. Armstrong, is a famous case among trial lawyers, Dekle said. “Just about any lawyer that has been involved with trials has at least heard about the Almanac Trial,” he said. “And they’ve heard about it through the cross examination that Lincoln performed.” Dekle said the first time he read about the case was in law school at UF. He said right around the time he retired, he was sitting in a lecture listening to somebody expound on Lincoln’s cross examina tion when he realized what he was hearing was wrong. “So I got to looking around at some of the oldest accounts of the trial and they were all over the landscape about telling what happened,” he said. “Then what I think trig gered writing the book was when I was involved in writing another book with a group of lawyers on cross examination, and one of the chapters dealt with the examination, and it was wrong.” At that point, he said he began researching the case and wrote the book. As it’s heard through the grapevine, the case began in Mason County, Illinois, right before mid night on August 29, 1857, when someone attacked James Preston Metzer with a slungshot. He suf fered a fatal wound and died three days later. The witness was a man named Charles Allen, who testified that he saw William “Duff” Armstrong murder Metzer while standing about 150 feet away. When Lincoln asked Allen how he could tell it was Armstrong in the mid dle of the night, Allen said he saw the murder by the light of the moon. After hearing Allen’s tes timony, Lincoln produced a copy of an 1857 almanac and he turned to the cal endar page for August. He showed the jury that not only was the moon in the first quarter, but it was rid ing low on the horizon at the time of the murder. Lincoln concluded his case in saying there would not have been enough light for Allen to identify Armstrong or anyone else. The jury agreed, and Armstrong was acquitted.Conflicting storiesDekle said there was much conflict about what happened during the night of the murder, so he wrote a generic version of the story in such a way that it covered all the versions. His book then goes into detail about the three most popular versions of what happened at the trial, and then traces the history of how the three versions came to be and changed over the years. As the book continues, it goes back to as close to the original sources as possible by looking at the court file and letters and statements that were made by people involved in the trial. Dekle said he tried to reconstruct what happened by looking at what the actual partici pants said and what was on Lincoln the lawyer Local attorney Bob Dekle uncovers truth behind the ‘Almanac Trial’ in his book about our 16th president. SARAH LOFTUS/ Lake City ReporterGeorge R. “Bob” Dekle Sr. holds the 1857 edition of an alma nac that was used to help Abraham Lincoln win the famous Almanac Trial, in which his client was falsely accused of kill ing another man with a slingshot.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I co-own a profession al service business with a woman whose appearance has dete riorated significantly over the last three or four years. “Mary” was never a fashion plate, but she used to be pre sentable for business. Four years ago, she put on quite a bit of weight. She refuses to buy new clothes until she loses it, but she makes no real attempt to do so. Mary wears the same three pair of baggy pants to the office day after day. She does have two “good” outfits she will wear to see clients, but even those are thread bare. I dread the idea of a client dropping in and seeing Mary in her normal state, especially since she takes her shoes off at the office because her feet swell. She has become an embarrassment. How do you think I should handle this? — IMAGE IS EVERYTHING IN CALIFORNIA DEAR IMAGE IS EVERYTHING: If clients haven’t dropped in during the last four years, they are not likely to start coming in droves. However, your partner should look her best when she calls on clients, and she should not represent the busi ness looking “thread bare.” You should han dle this by addressing this part of the problem only. Unless you dress for the office looking like a page out of Vogue, let the woman be comfortable. DEAR ABBY: I have been estranged from my family for many years. It was a decision I thought long and hard about, and I have no regrets. It was one of the wis est decisions I have ever made, and it helped me to maintain my mental and physi cal health. I recently had a baby, and my family has been sending me gifts. In the past, I have returned them all, but I feel torn under these circum stances because the gifts are not for me, but for my child. Normally, I would write thank-you cards for such things, but in this case I don’t want to mislead anyone or set a precedent that such things are wel come. Please tell me how I should delicately han dle this. There is no hope for reconciliation, and my child will not be having a relation ship with any of these people. I don’t want to hurt anyone; I just want to be left alone. — ETIQUETTE-CHALLENGED DEAR CHALLENGED: You have already cut your ties with these people. You do not plan to have a relationship with them, nor will your child. You are under no obligation to thank them for unwanted gifts, and your child will not be deprived if you send the gifts back. It appears this is an attempt by them to buy their way back into your life. The gifts should be returned unopened, with no comment. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Tidy up loose ends and prepare for your upcoming week. It’s important to put the emphasis on your work and getting ahead. Whether check ing out new job prospects or updating your resume, raising your standard of living should be your intent. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t start something you can’t finish or promise what you cannot deliver. Focus on self-im provement, changing your rou tine and being more health-con scious. Romance will improve your state of mind and give your personal life a boost. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do your best to please. Go above and beyond the call of duty to make your surroundings com fortable and those you encounter feel at ease. Avoid confrontations and emotional blackmail by stick ing to the truth. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): The more you do for your self and the less you rely on oth ers, the easier it will be to avoid opposition and interference. Accept the inevitable changes that come your way and focus on getting the most out of each moment. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Embrace change, adventure and whatever will bring you closer to your goals. Don’t let someone else’s uncertainty daunt you. Use what you know to your advantage and you will enjoy the comfort of gaining ground and securing your position. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Withhold personal information until you feel you can share without being subject to ridicule. Not everyone will understand or approve of your tactics. Avoid an argument by refusing to disagree. Focus on you, not on what others are doing. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Venture into unknown territory. Try your hand at something new. Get to know individuals who have something unique to offer. Showing support or giving hands-on assistance will help you gain allies. Share your per sonal opinion with someone who needs encouragement. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make personal changes to the way you live. Explore new ways to give support to some one going through a difficult time. Put love first, but don’t feel you have to spend money to win favors. Moderation and disci pline will bring good results. + SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tread carefully when dealing with partners, family or anyone who can turn your life upside-down emotional ly. You can accomplish a lot and stay out of trouble if you make home improvements that will add to your comfort and conve nience. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Say little and do a lot. Criticizing won’t get you far, but encouragement will help you round up all the support and help you need to accomplish your goals. Think twice before spending. Invest in you, not someone else. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Curb spending habits. Set a budget, look over your per sonal papers and make sure you are on track. An opportunity to take part in an activity that will bring you clout or a chance to join forces with someone looks promising. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotional troubles will disrupt your plans and stifle your creative imagination. Don’t get angry when you should be focusing on getting things done. Getting along with others will make it much easier to be pro ductive. Be honest with yourself and others. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Partner’s sloppy appearance reflects poorly on business Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

go through their entire life cycle before dying off when the temperatures climb later in the spring. Examples of common cool-season lawn weeds include thistle, chickweed, wild geranium and henbit. Warm-season annual weeds like it hot. They germinate from seeds in early March when day temperatures reach 65 to 70 degrees for several days in a row. They grow while it is warm and die when it gets cold. Some warm-season weeds that may be tormenting your lawn right now are chamberbitter, Florida pusley, spurge, oxalis and crabgrass. If you have an infestation of summer annual weeds, dont spend your money on getting rid of them now. The best way to deal with them is to remember where the mass is located. Better yet, take a picture to look at in March when its time to put down the pre-emergent. Then you can treat the lawn only where the problem exists. It is very important to note that certain herbicides are intended for use on specific lawn grasses. Use an herbicide on the wrong grass, and you could really damage the grass plants as well as the weeds. An example is atrazine, a popular pre-emergent herbicide used on St. Augustine grass. This chemical will cause injury to the lawn if used on bahiagrass. The lesson here is: know your lawn grass species, know your weed species, and read all labels carefully. When applying a pre-emergent herbicide, remember that timing is everything. If the application is made too early, the chemical will become inactive before the seeds are ready to try to germinate. If the application is made after the seedlings are established, the chemical is non-effective. These chemicals provide a good barrier to germination for 6-12 weeks. Check on the label to determine if a second application is recommended at a later date for extended protection. Perennial weeds are much more difficult to control. These plants typically live for three or more years and are treated with a post-emergent herbicide while actively growing. Herbicides can provide a safe and effective method of control if homeowners have a basic understanding of the weeds they are controlling and of their lawn species. It is important to follow all the label instructions such as application method, timing, and rates. According to federal law, all personal and environmental protection procedures on the label must be read and followed. If you need assistance in identifying a lawn weed, you can leave a sample at the UF/IFAS Extension Office, 971 W. Duval St, Lake City. The Master Gardeners are in the office to answer questions on Tuesday and Thursdays. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 D.

SubmittedThe beach of Dickinson Bay in St. Johns, Antigua, was the romantic venue for the intimate two-ring marriage ceremony of Sara Marie Koski to George Frank Beau Carder IV the afternoon of Friday, August 8, 2014. The barefooted wedding guests were seated in white latticed chairs before an elegant and native canopy of lashed bamboo tree trunks swathed in sunset-colored chiffon panels. Ten family members were in attendance. Guests carried alternating white and pink parasols. The brides parents are George Shamieh of Beverly Hills and Jonna Woodburn of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Stepfather Robert Woodburn is from Dallas. Parents of the groom are Larry and Sheri Carder Gunter of Lake City and Mr. and George Carder III of Searcy, Arkansas. The groom is the grandson of Gene Thompson and the late Mr. Thompson, and George Gunter and the late Mr. Gunter, of Conway, Arkansas, Mr. and Mrs. Raymon Pulley of McCrory, Arkansas, and the late Mr. and Mrs. Frank Carder, Jr. of Searcy. The bride was accompanied by the wedding party past the fountains and walkways filled with bougainvillea and freesia to the edge of the beach. Amid red rose petals scattered on the sand, her father escorted her to the altar in a procession of the classical Canon in D. The bride wore an ivory gown fashioned by Demetrios of Italy. The deep sweetheart neckline was lined with crystals. The mermaid design featured a bodice of ruched organza and a corseted, laced back. The floor-length skirt encompassed layers of tulle in a feathered effect, ending in a train. Her feet were clad in Alencon lace barefoot wedding sandals from Turkey. Her asymmetrical hairstyle was graced with fragrant white frangipani. Her wedding jewelry was a handsome amethyst and silver bracelet, a wedding gift from her father, and drop earrings, worn by the grooms sister at her wedding. Her hand-tied bouquet was made from sprays of violet dendrobium orchids; the satin ribbon of the spray was fastened with the grooms grandmothers brooch. The grooms boutonnire was a single matching orchid. Identical sprays of orchids also centered all tablescapes and topped the wedding cake. The Rev. Vaughn M. Walter, of Antigua, conducted a traditional Christian ceremony, ending with the formal signing. Following the vows and exchange of rings, a linen-covered table was placed before the canopied altar. The bride and groom were seated as they signed the official papers, followed by their fathers, who served as witnesses. Immediately following the ceremony, guests ascended to the Mediterranean Tower, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. There, a native steel drum band welcomed the wedding party and played for dancing. Catered Caribbean seafood crudities and silver platters filled with cheeses and fruits were offered to the guests, along with island fruit drinks. The reception was followed by a catered seated dinner, hosted by the brides father, in a gazebo festooned with tiny fairy lights, near a reflecting pool. The bride and groom danced to A Thousand Years as their first dance. Guests were served blue marlin sushi, asparagus/grapefruit/ bacon salad, and macadamia-crusted mahi mahi with pina colada sauce. The spiced wedding cake was served with champagne sabayon for dessert. Several dinners were given in honor of the couple prior to the wedding, including a lobster evening and a hibachi evening. The central event preceding the wedding was a chartered yacht trip circumnavigating the island of Antigua, which included a snorkeling trip over a shipwreck, hosted by the grooms aunt and uncle, Mr. & Mrs. Steve Thompson of Montecito, California. While on the yacht trip, the couple tossed a love note in a bottle, complete with GPS tracking, into the Caribbean Sea. The special bottle was a gift from the grooms parents. As wedding favors, the couple presented all guests with custom tie-dyed shirts featuring a map of the island of Antigua. Prior to the wedding ceremony in Antigua, the couple held a wedding blessing ceremony at the Dallas Arboretum, with the brides daughter Madelyn as the sole attendant. There, they read personal vows, sealing themselves as a family of three. In attendance were the brides mother and stepfather. The bride attended Tarleton State University in Texas, where she played basketball. She is a manager with Independent Bank in a Dallas suburb. The groom is also in banking, as a Vice President of Wells Fargo. He graduated from the University of Florida, where he was an officer with Sigma Chi. Following their extended wedding trip in Antigua, the couple resides in Dallas. Couple weds in Antigua COURTESYSara Marie Koski and George Frank Beau Carder, of Lake City, wed in Antigua in August. the record. It was a very significant case to the people involved, especially the victim, Dekle said. But in the great scheme of things, it wasnt that important of a case. What really gave it its importance was when it became a campaign issue when he ran for president. Dekle said most of Lincolns campaign literature and campaign biographies skimmed over the fact that he was a lawyer. But they had this one heart warming story that they could tell about him being a lawyer, and it would be this particular story about him defending a man and didnt charge a fee because his affection for the mans parents and was able to get him acquitted. Political rhetoric, being what it is, they embellished it and exaggerated it, Dekle said. Most of the literature written on the Lincolns trial case is fiction, Dekle said. My book is not fiction, he said. The difference between my book and any other book is that I know how to try a murder case. I can speak to how that murder case was tried by both the prosecution and the defense with more authority than most people. Relating to LincolnBack in the 1850s, the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Illinois was divided into just that, circuits, Dekle said. The circuits had two terms of court each year in each county with a spring and fall term. He said the lawyers would get on their horses and in their wagons, and go to the first county that had a spring or fall term for about two weeks, and would make a round of all the counties. One thing about the eleventh circuit of Illinois back in the 1850s, was it was so much like the Third Judicial Circuit of Florida in the 1970s, he said. When I first started practicing law, the way the we tried cases was extremely similar in the way they tried cases in the 1850s, only our case load was too heavy to only go to court twice a year. We would go to court about every seven weeks because of the increase in case load, but it was similar in how we would travel from county to county, and you try cases very quickly and very rapidly. Dekle said he could relate to Lincoln as the future president rode around the Eleventh Circuit on his horse named Old Buck and handled cases one right after another, especially when Lincoln became involved in this murder case. He said it brought back old memories of working as a public offender. It was kind of like pulling your fingernails out with a rusty pair of pliers, Dekle said as he explained his time spent on the murder case of Ted Bundy. He said the biggest part of the ordeal was the lead up to the trial. It took two years to get the case up to trail, and he said the actual trail itself was like being on a roller coaster. He said Lincoln could relate to the early 1970s in the Third Circuit of Florida, but by the 1980s when we tried Bundy, life was getting a lot more complicated, he said. And Lincoln never tried a case as complicated or anything like the Bundy case. And most lawyers havent. Its kind of a once in a lifetime thing for people who do trial cases. It was a magical mystery trial for me to go through at the time, and it would have been the same thing for him, but I dont have any doubt that he would have been able to get through it. He was an excellent trial lawyer. Writing the bookDekle said he wrote the story in the spare time he had being a full-time law professor. He began research on the case around five years ago, and said he had enjoyed writing this book more than any other book he had written. I actually went to Illinois, went to the courtroom where the case was tried and went looking for the scene of the crime, he said. As a homicide prosecutor, I always liked to go to the scene of the crime because you gain so many insights into what happened if you just go there and look around and see the layout of the land. One Sunday morning, he said him and his wife went driving through the cornfields of Illinois looking for the crime scene, but never found it. We did, however, find the grave of Lincolns client, he said. He said he thoroughly enjoyed writing the book from start to finish. It was a real pleasure writing this book, he said. I hope that anybody that reads the book can find as much pleasure in reading it as I had writing it. Dekle said he is in the process of researching Lincolns entire career as a trial lawyer, with a focus on murder cases, and plans to write more books.
