June Epperson, 88, former owner of June Epperson Realty and former Columbia County School Board member, was the first female school board mem ber here and the first woman to wear a pantsuit to a board meet ing, according to her daughter, Elizabeth Black. Epperson bal anced being a member of the school board and starting her own realty company in 1974, which she ran out of her mothers house located next to Kens BBQ on US 90. Black said one of Eppersons biggest accom plishments was in 1980, when she was appointed by Gov. Bob Graham to sit on the advisory coun cil for the Florida Department of Corrections. Then in 1982, Black said she worked on the Florida School Board Association and addressed representatives of 12 Southern states on how to avoid getting a collective bargaining law in your state. She never had a problem standing alone when she felt strongly about an issue, Black said. Keith Hudson, chairman of the Columbia County School Board, said he worked with Epperson for six years on the school board back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. She was always extremely prepared, he said. She knew the issues inside and out, and really made it her business to keep herself informed. Hudson said Epperson was elected by the board to serve as chairman for more than one term, and said she served on the board when Columbia High School moved to its new location in 1975. You always knew where she stood, Hudson said. She was always very clear with her posi tion, and she was a real role model for people. Terry McDavid, a retired attorney, former school board attorney and former county judge, said he practiced for 50 years and recalled inter esting times while representing Epperson when she served as chairman of the school board.

Yes, maam. I just shot my daughter and shot all my grand kids. And Ill be sitting on my steps and when you get here Im going to shoot myself, Spirit, 51, said in the 911 call released Tuesday. He placed the call Thursday from his mobile home in Bell after killing his daughter, 28-year-old Sarah Spirit, and her six children: Kaleb Kuhlmann, 11; Kylie Kuhlmann, 9; Johnathon Kuhlmann, 8; Destiny Stewart, 5; Brandon Stewart, 4; and Alanna Stewart, who was born in June. The dispatcher asked Spirit what kind of gun he had, and he told her it did not matter. When you get here, Ill shoot myself and then you can figure out what kind of gun it is, he said, starting to sound angry. You got all the kids are dead in the house. ... Six kids, one adult. ... One of them is a baby. He then repeated that he planned to shoot himself on his back step once officers arrived. The dispatcher can be heard whispering to someone that she needs help before the recording is cut off. When deputies arrived on scene, they had a brief verbal exchange with Spirit before he shot himself, according to the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office. Inside the mobile home, the bodies of the six children were scattered. The bodies of Spirit and his daughter were found in different areas outside the home.

NEW YORKThe mother of Columbine High School shooter Dylan Klebold is planning a memoir in which she will confront the indescribable grief and shame she has lived with since the 1999 tragedy. Crown Publishers told The Associated Press on Tuesday that it had acquired a book by Susan Klebold, saying she was compelled to share her story after the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and other schools. The book is currently untitled and does not have a release date. Klebold will donate any author profits to mental health research and charitable organizations. Dylan Klebold and fellow student Eric Harris killed 13 at the Colorado school before killing themselves. Susan Klebold has previously described her feelings in an essay for Oprah Winfreys O magazine and in interviews for Andrew Solomons book Far from the Tree.Dylan named 2015 MusiCares person of year LOS ANGELES Bob Dylan will be honored as the 2015 MusiCares person of the year.

John Thrasher as its next president despite significant opposition from people on campus who contended he isnt qualified for the post. The FSU board voted 11-2 Tuesday to hire Thrasher over three academics, pushing aside objections from FSU faculty who cited his lack of education credentials. Thrasher, a former state House speaker and chairman of Gov. Rick Scotts re-election campaign, also drew criticism after he sidestepped questions during a campus forum about climate change and evolution. But Thrashers supporters say his political connections and clout could help FSU in its quest to move into the ranks of the nations top research universities. Thrasher also vowed that he would help the university get more money to boost faculty salaries. Student protesters began chanting FSU is not for sale after the vote. The 70-year-old Thrasher graduated from FSU in 1965 with a bachelors degree in business and later received his law degree from the school. In the Legislature, he helped win approval for the universitys medical school, which opened in 2001. Thrasher also spent four years on FSUs board. He has never taught, however, working as a lawyer and a lobbyist in addition to politics. During his final interview, Thrasher maintained he would reach out to his opponents if selected. He also said he shared the same goal as others at helping improve FSU. Thrasher is stepping in at a time when the university has come under fire for its handling of star quarterback Jamesis Winston. Winston has been involved in a series of off-field incidents in recent months, and he was suspended from last weeks game for making offensive and vulgar comments about female anatomy on campus. The university initially only suspended him for a half, but then late Friday switched it to an entire game. The selection still has to be ratified in November by the Board of Governors. But the statewide panel has never refused to endorse the selection made by a local university board. The other candidates include former West Virginia University Provost Michele Wheatly, Colorado State University System Chancellor Michael Martin and University of Alabama at Birmingham Vice President Richard Marchase. FSU has been without a president since Eric Barron left in April to take the top post at Penn State University. The process to hire a successor has been bumpy ever since Thrasher emerged as a candidate. Initially FSU planned to interview him ahead of all candidates but that created a backlash and ultimately led to the search being delayed.

From staff reports Florida Gateway College announced on Tuesday that it has been designat ed a 2015 Military Friendly School for the fourth con secutive year. Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the pre mier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly provides service members trans parent, data-driven ratings about post-military educa tion and career opportu nities. The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 per cent of colleges, universi ties, and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace mili tary students, and to ded icate resources to ensure their success in the class room and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veter an landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country. Its exciting to Florida Gateway College to be selected again, for the fourth time, in the top 15 percent of schools in the country as a Military Friendly School, said Dr. Chuck Hall, president of FGC. With so many of our students and staff having served in the military, we think its only right to try and give back as much as possible through great programs, great staff, and great opportunities. The survey captures over 50 leading practices in supporting military stu dents and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill fund ing.

FWHS to hold Driven to Give By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com The Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board adopted its pro posed $9.2 million fiscal budget for 2014-15 during the boards final budget hearing, including adjusted salaries for employees with new duties. Board members unanimously adopted the proposed budget and the 0.962 millage rate following a public hearing where only two people made public comments. The LSHAs total budget is $9,214,975. The total budget is composed of a patient care fund (hospital services) of $2,863,518; patient care fund (clinical ser vices) $905,000; operating fund of $3,735,257 and capital improve ment fund of $1,711,975. Although the budget was unan imously adopted, board members spent several minutes discussing salary adjustments for the LSHA staff. Tim Murphy, LSHA board member, attempted to add an amendment to the budget where the office staff would not get sal ary adjustments. He noted that although one of the staff members is his niece, he did not feel it was appropriate to give staff members salary adjustment. The LHSA eliminated the administrative director position and created an administrative assistant position. Most of the duties formerly handled by the administrative director were shift ed to the financial assistance coun selor and secretary/receptionist when the position was eliminated. The financial assistance counsel or position received a $1,500 pay increase, while the secretary/receptionist position hourly pay (a part time position) increased from $13 an hour to $15 an hour. As the discussion continued, Marc Vann, LSHA board mem ber, said he sees a raise as a person getting paid more money for doing the same job, not for doing additional or new duties. He said he was opposed to the amendment. Loyal employees deserve some kind of recognition, unfor tunately in our society its usually monetary, said Lory Chancey, LSHA member, who noted as a business owner she gives raises to employees because of their loyal ty. She also noted she was in favor of the salary adjustments. Koby Adams, LSHA member, said governmental entities are often vilified by media and in the public opinion for giving raises, but he said it would be cheaper than training and hiring a new person. These girls have worked hard and been loyal, I see no problem with giving them a raise, he said. Jack Berry, Lake Shore Hospital Authority executive director, said the board experienced a savings of $14,500 over last year when a position was cut and work duties shifted to other office staff mem bers. Murphys motion died because of lack of support. Following the discussion the board unanimously adopted the millage rate and the proposed 2014-15 budget. For the last three years weve kept the millage rate at 0.0962 mills saving the tax payers $5.2 million, Adams said.LSHA adopts $9.2M budget for 2014-15

There have been more than 40 such break-ins across the county in recent weeks, and the individuals arrested thus far are only charged in connection with 19 of them. Stay alert. Watch where and how you park your vehicle. But above all else, lock your car or truck. That simple step alone would have thwarted the thieves in most of the recent break-ins, authorities say. Thats often the case in vehicle burglaries. More times than not, the thieves are simple opportunists presented with an easy target an unlocked vehicle. Often they contain purses, wallets, visible cash in front consoles, cell phones and other expensive gadgets. Anything of value is worth opening the door and swip-ing, if youre a deadbeat crook. And dont think youll be safe if you leave your car just for a minute or two, or if your vehicle is parked in your driveway. It only takes a second to steal.

Stop vehicle burglars in their tracks Q Associated PressMoments with kids that never leave usTODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1869, thousands of businessmen were ruined in a Wall Street panic known as Black Friday after Jay G ould and James Fisk attempted to corner the gold market. In 1929, Lt. James H. Doolittle guided a Consolidated NY-2 Biplane over Mitchel Field in New York in the first all-instrument flight. In 1948, Mildred Gillars, accused of being Nazi wartime radio propagandist Axis Sally, pleaded not guilty in Washington, D.C., to charges of treason. Gillars, later convicted, ended up serving 12 years in prison. In 1969, the trial of the Chicago Eight (later seven) began. Five of the defendants were later con-victed of crossing state lines to incite riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, but the convictions were ultimately overturned. In 2001, President George W. Bush ordered a freeze on the assets of 27 people and organizations with susp ected links to terrorism, including Islamic militant Osam a bin Laden, and urged other nations to do likewise. L ife gives us moments for doing things. Being young, for example. We dont get to do that forever. Except maybe at heart. There are moments for laughing, moments for grieving, moments for watching a child grow up. Childhood may seem to last for years, but really, it passes in bits and pieces that come flaming out of nowhere like shooting stars and slip quietly out of sight. Either you see them, or you dont. Moments never show up on demand. They are gifts, free and clear. We cant create them, any more than we can make a comet streak across the sky. All we can do is take a little time to hope and watch and wait and see what might come along. My children do a beautiful job of raising their children without me. We live 500 miles apart. I fly in once a month or so and stay a few days or more. Its never enough, but its the best I can do. And God bless them, they all seem to understand. Even the little people.Henry is 3. You have to go, Nana? he says, sad-faced. Then he nods with the wisdom of a knee-high Solomon. Its OK. You live with Papa Mark. Henry, I say, where is your nana when you cant see her? He grins, pointing to his heart.Henrys cousin, Wiley, is almost 2. He knows Im his nana but doesnt care when I leave as long as hes got his mama. But Wileys big brother Randy is 4, old enough to spend a night away from home and sweet enough to need me as I once needed my grandmothers: To be someone for whom he hangs the moon. Someone who lights up to see his face. Someone who loves just to be with him. What else is a nana for?So on the next-to-last night of my latest visit, I invited Randy to spend the night with me. I was staying at the home of friends who were off in France, or wherever, and I had their house and pool all to myself. Can we go in the pool now, Nana? he said after dinner. Its too late to swim tonight, I said. Lets read. So we did, curled up in my friends guest bed like foxes in a borrowed den. Five books later, his eyelashes fluttered like copper butterflies and he fell asleep, cling-ing like a monkey, arms around my neck, legs around my middle. I didnt sleep much. Didnt care. I can sleep when Im dead. At 5:49 I awoke to hear him whisper-singing in my ear, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Hungry? I said.He grinned.Minutes later, we were sitting in the kitchen. He was eating Cheerios. I was drinking coffee. The sun was dancing on the hills. Then he stopped with his spoon mid-air and said: Nana, Im glad this time is just you and me. I thought it would be you and me and my mom and dad and Wiley and Papa Mark. I love all those people. But sometimes I like it when its just you and me. He took a bite of Cheerios.I like it, too, I said finally, rubbing my face in his red curls. But tell me. Where is your nana when you cant see her? Like lightning, he pointed to his heart. Then we smiled with our eyes and went back to being just us, a boy and his nana. He wont always want to be just us. But in that moment, he did. And some moments shine so very bright they linger forever in memory. Randy might not remember it.But I will. T he state Department of Corrections appears to be serious about making systemic changes in prisons. Thirty-two officers were fired last week for vio-lations ranging from participating in the gassing death of an inmate to using force against prisoners. This is a positive step toward Department of Corrections Secretary Mike Crews promise to make the agency and its workers more accountable and transparent. But it will be a long-term endeavor to reform a department that has long been resistant to change. The corrections department is under scrutiny after a series of Miami Herald reports this spring that examined suspicious inmate deaths in Florida prisons. The news-paper found several cases where inmates died after being abused or neglected by corrections officers. Darren Rainey, 50, collapsed and died in 2012 after guards left him in a scalding shower for nearly two hours. Rainey, who was mentally ill, was being punished for defecating in his cell and refusing to clean it up. Corrections department officials said allegations of abuse and subsequent coverups were the result of a few bad apples and that the entire staff would be held to greater account. In August, Crews pledged systemwide reforms, including get-ting rid of staff who broke the law or department policy. On Friday, 32 officers employed at prisons around the state were fired, includ-ing three former guards at Franklin Correctional Institution who were connected with the gassing death of 27-year-old Randall Jordan-Aparo. So far this month, Crews has fired 45 officers around the state for violations ranging from battering inmates to driving with a suspended license. Earlier in the month, the department launched the transparency database, which is located at www.dc.state.fl.us/pub/mortality/index.html and is searchable by facility. It allows users to view the status of each investigation and manner of death. It includes summary reports for all 2014 closed, non-natural death investigations that are con-ducted by the department. It will eventually contain information for all inmate deaths over a 14-year period. Given the nature of prisons, the potential for abuse is rampant. And Florida has had its share of prison problems, including at the highest levels. In 2006, for example, former corrections Secretary James Crosby resigned and went to federal prison for accepting kickbacks from prison vendors. It should not have taken pressure from the media to get the correc-tions department to institute major reforms. But now that it has, the department should be commended for moving quickly to implement its new disciplinary policy for way-ward employees and for opening its records. Both are good starts in an attempt to change a culture that has long operated unchecked by outsid-ers. Crews should keep it up.

She really did a good job guiding the board through difficult issues and also as an individual board member. McDavid said Epperson was a delightful lady and considered her a personal friend. He said not only did he work with her for many years, they also attended the same church. She held her guns, he said. She truly believed in something. And if she was on your side, shed come to bat for you. June was one of the most real leaders among the female office holders. Epperson was born on June 27, 1926, and was married to the late Douglas H. Epperson for 69 years before he died at the age of 98 in March, 2013. She had five children, 11 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Epperson attended the First Baptist Church for more than 50 years, where she sang in the choir, Black said. She was also a member of the Womens Club, where she often entertained with her beautiful voice. My mother was a wonderful woman, she said. Her generosity is known by many, many of which are gone now. Black said her mother would constantly take food to her friends because cooking for others brought her joy. She said she won several local cooking contests, and even had a recipe published in a southern cooking magazine. After retirement from her real estate career, Epperson devoted her time to a new business, The Doll Cottage, where she made porcelain dolls. She stressed the importance of education and family, she said. But more than that, she loved the community. EPPERSONContinued From 1A said they released the 911 recording because they are in the final stages of the investigation. Spirit used a .45-caliber handgun, and the FDLE and the sheriffs office have said they are looking into how he obtained a gun. As a felon, he was barred from owning firearms. The killings have shattered the Gilchrist County town of about 500 people and spurred questions about why Floridas Department of Children and Families had not intervened. It was well known in Bell that the Spirit family had run-ins with the law. Donald Spirit served time after accidentally shooting his young son on a hunting trip. A police report from 2008 showed that Sarah Spirit had reported being beaten by her father when she was 36 weeks pregnant. Two weeks before the killings, someone called a state child abuse hotline to report that adults were doing drugs in front of the kids, according to documents released by DCF. Documents also showed that DCF had offered services to Sarah Spirit at least three times in the last few years. Roy Miller, president of The Childrens Campaign, said the state has failed too many times over the years in gruesome child abuse deaths. We need systemic change to how we do investigations, said Miller, whose group unsuccessfully pushed the Legislature this year to transfer investigations to local sheriff departments on a voluntary basis. Currently, sheriffs agencies handle child abuse investigations in only six of Floridas 67 counties. Had a sheriffs investigator showed up ... we believe the sheriffs department would have been better informed and possibly more aggressive. DCFs regional managing director Dennis Miles said Tuesday that there appeared to be several red flags but that the agency needs to look deeper at what happened. After the slayings, a team of staffers was sent to investigate, per state protocol. Miles said the team will look at previous interactions with the family, and find out what went right, what went wrong and kind of give us some answers. Right now we dont have answers. Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he is asking for an investigation of DCF actions before the slayings. Ive asked the (DCF) secretary to do a thorough investigation of all interactions to know what happened there, but right now the most important thing we can do is pray for that family because you just cant imagine it happening to your family. BELLContinued From 1A booth, visit with local and county fire and police departments and local businesses who support the school. During the festival, the Moowatee CrossFit will be doing a presentation, a dog show will be held by the sheriffs office, the Columbia High School band will come to do a performance and Chases Pig Races will hold the Kiss the Pig event, Benefield said. Benefield said the students will vote on Friday and the teachers will use it as an educational tool to count votes, graph results and write about their choice of votes. In the running to kiss the pig are: principal, April Vinson, assistant principal, Janice Camp, the art teacher, a fifth grade teacher and a school tutor. I cant walk into the classroom without all the kids telling me theyre voting for me to kiss the pig, Vinson said. Its for the whole community, she added. We have many community members that are attending or have donated, and were very appreciative to everyone for making this a success.EMILY BUCHANAN /Lake City ReporterElementary students kiss the stuffed-animal pig during class on Tuesday. KISS THE PIGContinued From 1A From staff reportsIf you live in western Columbia or eastern Suwannee County, there are two exciting new community services now available. A weekly Bingo game with refreshments will be offered every Wednesday beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Wellborn United Methodist Church, and the McLeran Community Library is beginning its fall season with many new books and other media. Bingo is now offered in the United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, and while there will be no cash awards, participants will vie for a number of other special prizes. The games are open to adults of all ages (seniors especially encouraged), and you need not pre-register to attend. For more information about this event, call the churchs Outreach Ministries Coordinator, Kathy Lyons, at 386-3653418. From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, the Thurston B. McLeran Community Library is open, and there is no charge to use its facilities. The library is perhaps one of the best-kept secrets in eastern Suwannee County. It was established years ago when the late Margaret McLeran Owens donated over 1,000 books to start a library for the local community. Having taught in Suwannee and Columbia counties for over 30 years, Owens understood the importance of children and adults having convenient access to library materials. The library used to be housed in the Wellborn UMC Fellowship Hall until it was moved to Outreach Ministries across the street at 12004 County Road 137. Leading up to the move, the entire book collection was re-catalogued and a computer database was developed by the current librarian. The move was accomplished with a host of volunteers.Weekly Wednesday events in Wellbornprogram that provides care and schooling for severely disabled children and adults that require constant care and supervision. In July 2013, Carlton Palms resident Paige Lunsford died from severe dehydration at the facility. The Florida Department of Children and Families found that medical neglect at the center con tributed to her death, said Melanie Etters, a spokeswoman for the Agency for Persons with Disabilities. Just under 150 complaints have been lodged against the school since 2001, state records show, and the APD requested a moratorium on new admissions to Carlton Palms on Sept. 12, Etters said. However, the facility has until Oct. 3 to respond to that request before it becomes effective, she said. As of now, APD could admit new patients but doesnt have any lined up, Etters said. A Columbia County student has been housed at Carlton Palm for five or six years, Supt. Terry Huddleston said Tuesday afternoon. An item to renew the districts contract for another year was on the consent agenda for Tuesdays school board meeting. Robin Talley, director of the Chrysalis Center here, asked that the renewal be placed on the agenda. She said Tuesday she had heard of problems at the school but said the facility had promised to send a packet of material to alleviate her concerns. On Tuesday she said as far as she knew, the item would remain on the agenda. Huddleston, who said he didnt know about the situation until late Tuesday afternoon, pulled the item from the agenda immediately when notified by district officials who had spoken with a Reporter staff writer. I didnt even know we had a kid down there, he said. APD, which funds about 155 of Carlton Palms 195 patients, has taken three administrative actions against Carlton Palms, Etters said. The first administrative action required the facility to put in video monitoring. She said the center is currently on a corrective action plan and is under heavy scrutiny. Since 2001, there have been more than 140 reports of neglect and abuse at Carlton Palms, Etters said. John Harrell, a DCF spokesman, said because of confidentiality laws, he couldnt say in how many of those cases Carlton Palms was found responsible. The APDs ban on new admissions will not affect the Columbia County student housed at Carlton Palms because that student has been in the facility for several years. Even if the student were being admitted for the first time, the ban still wouldnt affect the student because the students stay there is being funded by the school district and DCF, not APD. According to the contract between the school district and Carlton Palms, the district pays $19,771.49 per year for this student to be in the center. That fee covers the students education at Carlton Palms, and DCF pays the remainder of the fee for the student to be at Carlton Palms. Huddleston said he plans to investigate the situation more closely. Hes unsure yet if the district or DCF will try to move the student to another facility. Since DCF placed the student in Carlton Palms, hes unsure if the district even has the authority the remove the student from the facility. MT. DORAContinued From 1A By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com The Columbia County school board unanimously voted to follow the districts recommendation to not give the group looking to start a new charter a school a deadline waiver at Tuesday nights school board meeting. The group wants to start the Alfonso Levy Charter School on Dec. 1 after Shining Star Academy of the Arts closes. In order to open a new charter school in December, a charter application was due on or before Aug. 1, 2013. Ron Natale, the spokesman for the group looking to open the new school, asked at the meeting that the board grant the group a deadline waiver so that the groups charter application can be reviewed. Keith Hatcher, the district charter school director, said the Florida Department of Education told him it would be irresponsible for the board to grant the group a deadline waiver. He also said at the meeting that the district would not have enough time to review a charter application before Dec. 1. Natale asked the board if it would waive the Aug. 1 deadline so the charter school could open in August 2015 since it wouldnt waive the deadline for the school to open in December. To open a charter school for the 2015-16 school year, an application was due on or before Aug. 1. Board members Linard Johnson and Stephanie Finnell said they would consider doing that.

This is the fifth year Current Problems has hosted a cleanup on the river. Last year, divers scoured river bottoms as volunteers worked on the river banks to remove literally thousands of pounds of trash. There were nearly 600 volunteers making up 30 separate teams who cleaned up over 29,000 pounds of trash. Its time to do it again this year. Join Current Problems for the start of the cleanup season and enjoy a free lunch to all volunteers after the first day of cleaning. Volunteers are needed for land support, kayakers and canoeists to shuttle trash back to the ramp and work on the shoreline. Bring your own boats if you wish to row or paddle. A motor boat would also be helpful. Depending on the weather conditions, a dive team may participate in the kickoff. Remember, to volunteer as a diver, you must be cave-certified. If you want to participate in Saturdays kickoff, an RSVP is needed by today. The 2014 cleanup season will run September, October, and November, possible extending into the first week of December, depending on the weather conditions.

In no particular order: How can I get a lower dose of medication since the tablet or capsule only comes in one strength? Easy to solve! Call the pharmacist and ask if the capsule contents can be dumped into applesauce and if the answer is yes then dump out half (or a quarter) of the contents and recap it. Save the rest for later. Tablets that can be broken are easy to spot. Youll see a breakable score in the middle of the tablet. If the answer is no, this medicine cannot be split or dumped, then have your doctor call it in to a compounding pharmacy. They prepare special dosages. For example, Viagra, the super sex pill is also used for cardiovascular conditions. Some men and women cannot take the full Viagra dosage, so the same active ingredient (sildenafil) is mixed into a liquid, allowing you to take lower doses or titrate up. How do I deal with a rude clerk? Yep, this happens. I would certainly tell the store or pharmacy manager about your experience. How do I deal with high prescription prices? There are pharmacy assistance programs that offer deep discounts to those who are in need, but the paperwork is extensive depending on the drug you are applying to. I recommend generics where available. If the medication you take does not come in generic, then switch to a sister drug in the same class that does come in generic. An example of this is with Abilify, the medication that had the highest amount of sales in the US, in 2013 hitting $6,460,215,394.00 (thats 6.5 billion US dollars!) and the generic isnt available until 2015. So if you cant afford Abilify, used for various emotional and psychiatric disorders, you should ask your doctor to rewrite the prescription for Risperdal. This drug has a similar effect on the body as Abilify, but it has a more affordable generic equivalent right now. These drugs are not exactly the same ingredient, but they have some similar effects on the brain. What do I do if the pharmacy I go to is out of stock? If you can wait for them to order your medication I would do that. Ask if they can advance you 3 pills until it comes in. Many pharmacies will grant this so long as it is not a controlled (addictive) substance but the judgment for this is with each pharmacist. Computers today allow pharmacists to check another stores stock to see if another location has your drug. To prevent running out, keep a list of your meds and when they are due. You can also ask your pharmacist to automatically refill your medicine, and they will track when it comes due and automatically refill it. The best way to deal with...DEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Cohensuzycohen24@gmail.com www.SuzyCohen.com Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist in Gainesville. StatePointIf youre 65 or older, you probably know that the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period runs October 15 through December 7. Generally, this is the only time you can make changes to your coverage. According to Herb Fritch, president of CignaHealthSpring, a leading health service company and Medicare insurance provider, here are some things to consider: Determine priorities. Make a list of priorities -such as lowering out-ofpocket costs -and use it to compare plans. Understand the different parts. Part A refers to hospital insurance. The amount of the deductible depends on the length of the hospital stay. Part B refers to basic medical insurance for doctor visits and other health care services. Medicare pays 80 percent of approved charges while you pay 20 percent in addition to a monthly Part B premium and annual deductible which will vary based on your income. Supplemental plans like Medigap and Medicare Advantage can help cover the 20 percent gap and most offer extra benefits. Part C refers to plans operated by private companies that combine Part A and B benefits. Most include Part D prescription drug coverage, offer no or low monthly premiums, and extras like vision, dental and gym membership benefits. Part D refers to Prescription Drug Plans offering at least a standard level of coverage set by Medicare; some are available as stand-alone plans. Do your research. Benefits differ from company-to-company and even state-to-state, so do your research. Look beyond premium cost to ensure there arent hidden copays or fees that will end up costing you more. Pay close attention to medication quantity limits and make sure your plan offers adequate drug coverage. Pay your Medicare Part B premium. Even if youre enrolled in a private Medicare plan, you must continue paying your Part B premium. If youre having trouble, contact your local Medicaid office to see if you qualify for a Medicare Savings Program. Dont settle. Priorities change, so the plan that worked when you were 65 may not be best when youre 75. Plans also change year-to-year so review before renewing. Know your network. Many plans offer choices with a network of doctors. If you visit a doctor out of network, you could be responsible for out-ofpocket costs. However, networks offered by Medicare Advantage choices, such as CignaHealthSpring, can foster better coordination among doctors, leading to better care. Ask your doctors what plans they accept or check your network directory. Dont worry about the Exchanges. With a few exceptions, Medicare will be a better option than the Exchanges (also called Marketplaces). In fact, its illegal for someone to sell you an Exchange plan if they know you have Medicare. Use free resources. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Plan Finder helps you compare costs, covered medications and other items. Many insurance plans offer free seminars with no obligation to sign up. You can also check companies websites or call their Customer Service num ber for more information. Local agencies on aging can also be helpful. This open enrollment period, make sure your health plan works for you.Medicare enrollment what you should know for 2015 WAVEBREAK MEDIAThe Medicare Annual Enrollment Period runs Oct. 15-Dec. 7. This is typically the only time Medicare participants can make changes to their coverage. Make sure you have all the information you need before the enrollment period begins.

QB competition FILEColumbia High quarterbacks Jake Thomas ( LEFT ) and Davin Schuck ( RIGHT ) will battle for the starting quarterback positition until th e Tigers game against Ed White High on Oct. 10.Allen plans to name a starter by Ed WhiteBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.com Columbia High head coach Brian Allen puts high expectations on the Tigers each season. One would expect that from a coach that has been to the playoffs every year since arriving home at his alma mater. But when it comes to the group that Allen coaches, the demands are even higher. The head coach is putting the pressure on the quar-terbacks over the next two weeks with the starting job on the line. Right now, its definitely behind my expectations for the team, Allen said. Its not only the quar-terback, but protection at times feels like theres been mistakes. Its just mental errors. The system is structured where if youll listen, its not complicated. For whatever reason, in the games, thats not happening. Its not extremely dif-ficult to understand in the passing game. Were calling a three-step drop, and were getting five steps. The repetition is there. Attention to detail and getting mistakes corrected is there. Its completely different in the games. For the Tigers to get bet-ter, Allen said that Davin Schuck and Jake Thomas must be their own biggest critics. Its time for one to take the job. Well have to fine tune whats there, Allen said. Its not where it needs to be right now. I dont know that it has to be there, but it has to be a little better as we get ready to approach this Ed White game. We have two games and then its back to the competitiveness of the first two games. Im naming a starter by Ed White and Im going with it. With that said, Allen said this is Schucks week to prove him-self after Thomas had a chance to start against Terry Parker High last week. Davin will start this week, Allen announced Tuesday. I want to see who is going to grab the bull by the horns. I want to go into Ed White ready with the one that is going to help us win. Nobody has grabbed it. We have time under our belt. While the quarterback has certainly been under Allens scrutiny, hes equally as critical of the play from the offensive line. Theyre average at best, Allen said. Im as frustrated with the line as I am the quarterback. Repetition should create habits. Were still making the same mistakes over and over. At best were average. We can score on a play and look at it and analyze it and pick out three mistakes on a touchdown. Masking the mistakes of the offensive line have been running backs Lonnie Underwood and Kamario Bell. But Allen said even great backs cant make plays on their own every week. Now its time for the line to make things happen. We have backs that can make things happen, not because the blocking, Allen said. I have expectations out of this group. My expectations werent super high last year, but this year we have guys that have been in roles for two years. Were making mistakes that I dont understand. We just have to continue to work to be better. Columbia hosts Englewood High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. I want to see who is going to grab the bull by the horns. I want to go into Ed White ready with the one that is going to help us win. Columbia High head coach Brian Allen

The Falcons won the Commanders Cup in the 14th edition of the contest, but the game was never in question. After a scoreless first quarter, Lake City took over with 22 points coming before the half. Noah Ruise broke the tie with a one-yard touch-down run coming with 6:19 remaining in the first half, but the extra point was blocked to leave the Falcons up 6-0. Trickery came on the following kickoff as the Falcons went onside and recovered. Ruise reached the end zone again with 3:38 remaining in the half and converted a two-point try to give Lake City a 14-0 lead. Richardsons Jordan Smith was taken in ambu-lance off the field with a possible injury to his neck and back. After a 30-minute delay, the game returned to action and the Falcons continued to dominate. Jaylen Brown caught a touchdown pass from Dylan Blair to give the Falcons a 22-0 lead before the half. Lake City recovered a fumble to begin the sec-ond half and Brown found the end zone for a second time with 4:45 remaining in the third quarter. Garrett Finnell added the extra point for a 29-0 lead. Brown capped off the scoring for the Falcons with his third touchdown of the game. This time, he did it from the defensive side. Brown recovered a fumble and ran 40 yards to a touchdown and a 36-0 lead to signal the running clock with 4:24 remaining in the third quarter. Richardsons only touchdown came from Latorian Jones with 4:01 remaining in the contest.
Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I am a 42-year-old divorced father of two. I have had a girl friend, Dawn, for about a year. She has met my kids, but shes still uncomfort able with the situation. She has concerns about me having been married before, such as having experienced many of the firsts she has yet to enjoy. Dawn doesnt like being in my house because I had it when I was married, and she says my kids remind her of my past. She says she doesnt want to share me with anyone, including them. When were alone, we are absolutely phenomenal as a couple. We love and care about each other deep ly. This is causing a tremen dous amount of stress on us, and neither of us knows how to handle it or what to do. Please help. TWOS COMPANY IN ILLINOIS DEAR TWOS COMPANY: Forgive me for being blunt, but you need to break it off with this woman before you waste any more of her time or yours. You may be crazy about Dawn, but your first responsibility must be to your children, and she has made it clear how she feels about them. You may be phenomenal as a couple, but there are more people involved than just the two of you. She needs to find someone who has no encumbrances, and you need to find a lady who has a greater capacity for love than Dawn appears to be capable of. DEAR ABBY: I often eat out with friends when we travel and when were here at home. Some of them bring their own canned drinks or powdered drink mix to add to water served by the restaurant. I have an uneasy feeling about this. I dont think it is right to take my own drink into an eating establishment. I have never said any thing negative about it, but I havent joined in the practice. Is my discomfort MY problem? What do you think about this? TESTY SOUTHERN BELLE DEAR BELLE: What I think about it is less important than what the restaurant does, and not knowing the reason your friends behave this way, I am hesitant to judge them. Im not sure what kind of canned or powdered drink your friends are bringing, but if they are on some kind of restricted diet, then its what they need do for a while. If the restaurant objected, the manager would either tell your friends not to do it any more or institute a charge to make up for the lost income. DEAR ABBY: I have been with Russell for four months. We live together and eventually would like to be married. Russ is very honest. He told me he had impregnated a woman prior to me and she was eight months pregnant. I asked him to contact her on my behalf so I can meet her, since we plan on having a future together. When I called the woman to suggest we meet some where, she cursed me out for contacting her and for telling her she cant com municate with Russ unless Im involved. When Russ told her the same thing, she ordered him not to contact her again. Russ has tried calling her since then because he wants to be involved in his childs life, but she never called him back. What do you think we should do? LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE DEAR LOOKING: What Russell should do -and you, as well -is talk with an attorney to estab lish exactly what his rights and responsibilities will be to his child, once paternity has been established. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take action. If you arent proactive, nothing will get done. Speak up regard ing financial, legal or health matters, and you will bring about an opportunity to renegotiate a deal you arent happy with. A passionate approach will pay off. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discipline and hard work will help you gain respect and a higher posi tion. Do the legwork and find out facts firsthand to avoid anyone leading you astray or taking credit that belongs to you. Love is on the rise. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have more going for you than you realize. Take advantage of an oppor tunity to discuss your ideas. Refuse to let a jealous friend or lover stand between you and what you want. Dont get angry; focus on getting ahead. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get to the bottom of any situation that is causing you grief. Dont rely on others to do the work for you. Show initiative and turn your ideas into something tangible. Now is not the time to let someone take over. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Position yourself for stardom. Focus on what you have to do to get noticed. A little effort will go a long way and add to your popu larity. You cant go wrong if you are helpful, under standing and fun to be with. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Check out your cur rent position and you will find a way to make improve ments that will help you change your life. You will get ahead if you refuse to let others take over. Show everyone what you are capa ble of doing. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have to divide your attention in order to take care of everything going on around you. Dont stop or relax until you have everything under control. Letting someone else take care of your business will be your downfall. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An invest ment or deal will pay off if you are prepared to wheel and deal. Be creative with your money and you will invite new opportunities that promise greater pros perity. Dont trust anyone to do as good a job as you. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A commit ment may be your way of keeping the peace, but if you dont want to honor your promise, your stress level will mount. Romance may be hot, but that doesnt mean you should jump into something you arent pre pared to finish. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will feel used and abused if you have allowed someone to dictate what you can and cannot do. Speak up and face the music. Its up to you to counter anything that some one offers that doesnt seem fair to you. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take note of whats going on around you. Dont take a pass when you should be aggressive ly pursuing your goals. Participation will give you the chance to persuade oth ers to back your plan. Dont give up. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Rely on your intuition to make the right decision financially, medically or legally. Look over personal papers and consider what you can do to improve your relationship with someone instrumental in helping you reach your goals. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Divorced dads girlfriend wants nothing to do with his children Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to pa-tients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not authorize vio-lations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or produc-tion of marijuana.

There will be ad-ditional regulatory and enforcement activities associated with the produc-tion and sale of medical marijuana. Fees will offset at least a portion of the regulatory costs. While sales tax may apply to purchases, changes in revenue cannot reasonably be deter-mined since the extent to which med-ical marijuana will be exempt from taxation is unclear without legislative or state administrative action.

Currently, the Governor may not fill an expected vacancy until the current justices or judges term expires.Full Text:ARTICLE VJUDICIARYSECTION 10.

When If a justice or judge is ineligible for retention or fails to qualify for retention, a prospective vacancy is deemed to occur at the conclusion of the qualifying period for retention for the purpose of appointing a successor justice or judge, and a vacancy shall exist in that office upon the expiration of the term being served by the justice or judge. When a justice or judge so qualifies, the ballot shall read sub-stantially as follows: "Shall Justice (or Judge) ...(name of justice or judge)... of the ...(name of the court)... be retained in office?" If a majority of the qualified electors vot-ing within the territorial jurisdiction of the court vote to retain, the justice or judge shall be retained for a term of six years.

The election of county court judges shall be by a vote of the qualified electors Legalwithin the territorial jurisdiction of the court.(3)a. Avote to exercise a local op-tion to select circuit court judges and county court judges by merit selec-tion and retention rather than by election shall be held in each circuit and county at the general election in the year 2000. If a vote to exercise this local option fails in a vote of the electors, such option shall not again be put to a vote of the electors of that jurisdiction until the expiration of at least two years.b. After the year 2000, a circuit may initiate the local option for merit se-lection and retention or the election of circuit judges, whichever is appli-cable, by filing with the custodian of state records a petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the circuit in the last preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen.c. After the year 2000, a county may initiate the local option for merit se-lection and retention or the election of county court judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the super-visor of elections a petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the county in the last preceding elec-tion in which presidential electors were chosen. The terms of circuit judges and judges of county courts shall be for six years.SECTION 11.

The term of the appointment commences upon the expiration of the term of the office being vacated and ends on the first T uesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next general election. (b) The governor shall fill each va-cancy on a circuit court or on a coun-ty court, wherein the judges are elected by a majority vote of the electors, by appointing for a term ending on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next primary and gen-eral election occurring at least one year after the date of appointment, one of not fewer than three persons nor more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominat-ing commission. An election shall be held to fill that judicial office for the term of the office beginning at the end of the appointed term.(c) The nominations shall be made within thirty days from the occur-rence of a vacancy or prospective vacancy unless the period is extended by the governor for a time not to ex-ceed thirty days.
