The company, San Mateo, Calif.-based Movoto, said it used a partial sampling of data from a 2012 FBI compilation, and figures from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to reach its conclusion, which was posted on numerous social media sites and elsewhere on the Internet. Many locals took the claim as fact, based on comments posted on their personal social media pages. A Jacksonville television station perpetrated the claim by reporting it as fact during a broadcast Friday night and on the stations website.

UP IN SMOKE?September polls reveal that support for medical marijuana isnt as strong as it was a few months ago. Some indicate voter support for Amendment 2 falls under the 60 percent necessary for the amendment to pass, while others show support remains high enough for medical marijuana to be legalized on Nov. 4. Amendment 2 allows the medicinal use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by a licensed Florida physician, or for other conditions for which a doctor says the use of marijuana outweighs the potential risks. The amendment allows caregivers to assist in patients medicinal use of marijuana and says the Department of Health will register and regulate centers that will produce and distribute medical marijuana. The centers will distribute identification cards to caregivers and patients. One poll by SurveyUSA/WFLA shows support is down to 53 percent. Another poll by Quinnipiac indicates 60-some percent of voters support medical marijuana, down from the near 90 percent of voter support medical marijuana had in a July Quinnipiac poll. However, a poll released Sept. 22 by United for Care, an organization in support of legalizing marijuana, shows the amendment has a 69 percent approval rate, which doesnt vary much Amendment 2 would allow sick patients to use pot.By SARAH LOFUTS | sloftus@lakecityreporter.comTHE ISSUE: LEGALIZING MEDICINAL MARIJUANA IN FLORIDA With some polls showing support of Amendment 2 has fallen below the 60 percent necessary for the measure to pass, whos to say come November 4 it wont be53%SurveyUSA/WFLA, down from earlier polls60%Quinnipiac, down from nearly 90 percent69%United for Care, released Sept. 22from what previous United for Care polls indicated.

Seldom Rest Farms in McApin was sold for about $27 million according to one of the parties involved. A 5,000-acre onion farm in Vidalia, Georgia, also brokered by Daniel Crapps Agency of Lake City brought more than $53 million. Seldom Rest was bought at around $6,000 an acre by Lakeland Sands, LLC, said Baynard Ward, a real estate agent who has worked with Daniel Crapps since 1986. Seldom Rest is a working farm with a highly improved pivot irrigation system. Its hard to find larger tracks for sale with that type of irrigation system, Ward said. Which is what made it valuable. The farm grows mostly corn, Ward said. Lakeland Sands is a farming company that has existing properties in Suwannee, Hamilton and Madison counties. The new company plans to use the farm in the same way it has been in previous years, Ward said. What made this deal so unique was that everything was in place and ready to use, he said. It had been farmed for over 30 years. It had a history to it. And thats the reason why it brought the money it did.

She said the property has remained flooded for more than a year. Bennett, 66, bought the property in the Fort White Big Oaks subdivision area about 24 years ago and moved from South Florida about four years later. She had lived in Palm Beach and moved to the area to retire and finish writing a book. Once here, her main hobby turned out to be horse breeding.

Swift to coach young hopefuls on ‘The Voice’ NEW YORK — Taylor Swift has plenty of her own hits, and now she’ll be advising young singers on “The Voice” how to do it themselves. The NBC competition show said Friday that the “Shake It Off” singer is serving as a mentor to competitors later this month. She’ll make her first appear ance on Oct. 27, giving her some prime-time exposure on the day that her new album is scheduled to be released. On three shows, Swift will advise contestants on vocal technique, stage presence and picking the right songs to fit their strengths. There’s no word on whether Swift will appear after the Nov. 3 show.Court for ‘The Situation’ delayed for reality show NEWARK, N.J. — A former member of the “Jersey Shore” case is delaying a court hearing in his tax fraud case so he can film another reality TV show. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was scheduled to be arraigned on fed eral conspiracy and tax fraud counts Monday in Newark. But the proceeding was moved to Oct. 23 after Sorrentino’s lawyer said his client has to tape anoth er reality show in Los Angeles. Sorrentino and his fiancee are sched uled to appear on “Marriage Boot Camp” which films for two weeks end ing Oct. 19. Sorrentino and brother Marc plead ed not guilty at an initial court appear ance last week. Prosecutors contend the pair filed false tax returns and overstated business expenses on about $9 million they earned through two businesses. Both are free on $250,000 bail. Parents: Man in good spirits despite Ebola NEW YORK — The parents of an American freelance cameraman diag nosed with Ebola said Friday that their son was in good spirits. “Obviously he is scared and wor ried,” Dr. Mitchell Levy said of his son, Ashoka Mukpo, who was hired Tuesday to be the second cameraman in Liberia for NBC’s chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Mukpo has been “seeing the death and tragedy and now it really hit home for him. But his spirits are better today,” added Levy, who appeared on NBC’s Today show with his wife, Diana Mukpo. Their 33-year-old son was being treated in the Liberian capital of Monrovia and was scheduled to return to the United States during the week end for treatment, his mother said. “I think the enormous anxiety that I have as a mother or that we share as parents is the delay between now and him leaving on Sunday,” she said, adding she hopes his symptoms do not worsen rapidly. The couple lives in Providence, Rhode Island. Police: Rapper had loaded gun at airport BURBANK, Calif. — Rapper Too Short has been cited at a Southern California airport a day after fleeing a security checkpoint when a screener found a loaded handgun in his carry-on luggage. Burbank police Sgt. John Pfrommer says the rapper, born Todd Anthony Shaw, was passing through the checkpoint Wednesday when a Transportation Security Administration employee noticed the handgun going through a baggage scanner. The rapper fled the building, leaving his belongings behind. Pfrommer says Too Short returned to the airport Thursday with his attor ney and was cited on misdemeanor possession of a loaded handgun in a public place.

The apartment complex located just north of Lake City Middle School at 384 SW Dexter Circle was bought by Daniel Management, LLC on Sept. 12, according to Kristi Jenkinson, the Groves new property manager. Jenkinson said the management has focused on making improvements to the complex. We want to be the premiere apartments for Columbia County, she said.Windsor Arms sold, renamed EMILY BUCHANAN/ Lake City ReporterThe Grove, 384 SW Dexter Circle, previously Windsor Arms, was purchased Sept. 12 by Daniel Management, LLC. The new owners are working on upgrading the complex.In less than a month, the complex has already made progress on work orders that have been neglected for quite some time. That includes fixing the front gate that has not worked in years, Jenkinson said. From staff reportsThe Lake City Police Department is seeking an arrest warrant for a woman who allegedly fired several shots into the air following an argument at Cedar Park Apartments Wednesday morning. According to LCPD, around 5:55 a.m. Wednesday police officers were dispatched to Cedar Park Apartments in response to a complaint of gunshots in the area. Arriving officers spoke to a woman near the entrance of the complex who told them she had been in an argument with Courtney Arthur. She said during the argument Arthur drew a firearm and discharged it into the air. Authorities searched the area and found and detained Arthur in a nearby apartment. However, when they processed the area looking for evidence, they were unable to find a firearm or any casings. An affidavit was submitted to the State Attorneys Office for review and all parties were released, reports said.Shots in air after argument at Cedar Park apartments LCPD now seeking arrest warrant.given the high number of murders per capita there in 2012, Movoto said. The claim is inaccurate, according to official FDLE reports. According to FDLE, there were only three murders in Lake City in 2012. Lake City had a population of 12,057 in 2012 and there were 67,729 people in Columbia County. Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter dismissed claims that Columbia County was more dangerous than Duval, Miami-Dade and thousands of other counties in the United States. When you look at the numbers, they just dont hold up, he said. While Movoto passes off its most dangerous county rankings as a true estimation, many other rankings on the companys website are clearly not meant to be taken seriously. The real estate company compared the homes from two 1960s sitcoms, The Munsters and The Addams Family, to determine which was most spooktacular. The contest ended in a draw. When the numbers are skewed to make a point, its not funny, Hunter said. We have worked real hard to make ours a safe county, and it is. People should be angry at this company for claiming otherwise just for the sake of publicity. Movoto generates visits to its website by ranking cities, counties and even states, often on intangible factors such as pride or attractiveness. In a recent Movoto poll, Ohio was said to rank highest in state pride, as detemined by the percentage of the population that likes its state on Facebook. Among Ohioans, 55 percent like their state on the social media site. Florida, where only 26.6 percent of the population likes the Sunshine State, ranked 28th. California was said to be the least proud state, with 20.4 percent likes. To determine the Most Physically Attractive Mid-Sized Cities (Bellevue, Wash. was No. 1, Gainesville No. 14), Movoto counted up the number of hair salons, spas, gyms, fashion stores and dentists per capita, then factored in the percentage of residents who like soap, deodorant or hygeine on Facebook. Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dennille Decker said humor is one thing, but spreading falsehoods that affect the local economy is another. Its unfortunate a website that is clearly meant to provide lighthearted and meaningless rankings has chosen to tackle a subject that has serious negative effects on our community, Decker said. When talking to prospective residents of Columbia County, crime is an area I never feel uncomfortable addressing, as the rate here is low.

By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comA homeless Lake City man was arrested Friday morning when he was found hiding from officers in the roof of a business he allegedly burglarized minutes before. Cody Croft, 27, faces charges of burglary, criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools, grand theft, tampering with evidence and trespassing, according to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. Deputies arrived at Green's Marine and Sporting Goods, 1613 E Duval Street, minutes after receiving a call from a witness at about 4:20 a.m. The witness, who lives behind the business, reported seeing a man climb the fence before tampering with the security cameras. Upon arrival, officers immediately surrounded the business and notified keyholder Amanda Green, who arrived on the scene to let officers into the building. According to a press release, evidence made it clear that someone had been inside the building. Police reported ransacked drawers, removed computer hard drives, a flashlight and a knife. Officers found a hole in the ceiling, which led them to discover Croft lying in the low part of the roof which was hidden by an A/C unit, an arrest report said. Croft had kicked the hole himself and was in possession of the hard drives, which he said he took to prevent law enforcement from finding him, the report said. Croft also told police that he was only in the building because he was looking for somewhere to get away from mosquitoes and find food, denying that either the flashlight or knife was his. Croft was arrested and transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility where he is being held on a $111,000 bond.Cops: Homeless man arrested for business burglary From staff reportsThe Suwannee High School Class of 1984 will hold its 30th Class Reunion on Saturday, Oct. 25 starting at 6:30 p.m. at The Brown Lantern, 417 E.

BY EMAIL: T he county commission finally had a chance to move forward in finding a successor to the late Harvey Campbell as head of the Tourist Development Council on Thursday. They blew it.Instead of allowing commissioners to vote down a proposal to offer the county’s top pick a big raise before even start-ing work, Commission Chairman Ron Williams withdrew the request, with plans to go back to the TDC and ask them to rethink their position. Had Williams left well enough alone, it is clear the matter would have been dis-posed of in minutes, and we would finally be free to move on to the next candidate. Commissioner Rusty DePratter said he agreed with the decision to pull the item from the agenda, but did want a new TDC chief soon. We don’t want this thing drag-ging on too long, he told fellow commis-sioners. But if Commissioner DePratter really wanted to bring this matter to an end, why on earth, in the very same breath, did he endorse further delay? It’s been nearly eight months since we’ve had anybody at the helm at TDC, and something about this endless series of missteps and delays strikes us as odd. Just what’s going on behind the scenes of this hiring process? Doubletalk at the county commission Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITOR TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1892, the Dalton Gang, notorious for its train robberies, was practically wiped out while attempting to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville, Kan. In 1921, the World Series was carried on radio for the first time as Newark, N.J. station WJZ (later WABC) relayed a telephoned play-by-play account of the first game from the Polo Grounds, where the New York Giants were facing the New York Yankees, to a studio announcer who repeated the information on the air. (Although the Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.) In 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis. In 1962, The Beatles’ first hit recording, “Love Me Do,” was released in the United Kingdom. Focus on facts, not Internet insanity This is the perfect example of why people should limit their Internet information consumption and stay off social media. If for some reason you missed the top story on our front page today, check out the details behind the hoax by which Lake City and Columbia County have been victimized recently. The information spread via the Internet and social media chan-nels about the crime rates in Lake City and Columbia County and how they compare to other counties in the U.S. and how we compare as a county nationally is completely false. The report painted a disparaging picture of us country folk here in Columbia County as liv-ing in the 10th most dangerous county in the United States. This is such a ridiculous idea, it felt silly to even type it here. We all know this is not true. We recapped the latest crime stats in the story on Page 1. Crime rates are something we cover religiously and the reports are released and covered in detail in our newspaper annually when the Florida Department of Law Enforcement releases them. We first noticed this false report early last week and shook our heads in dismay. It popped up on social media channels we monitor and was commented on and shared by a few locals. Some were alarmed; some were in dis-belief and critical of the findings. We recognized the hoax and first decided to let it lie. We hear an unbelievable number of false accusations, rumors and innuen-do during the course of any day. We try to check out all of them for truth, but only the ones we can accurately verify and attri-bute become topics of discussion for legitimate news content in your community newspaper. This false report took off when a Jacksonville TV station shared the information as truth Friday night. The station presented it as legiti-mate and accurate information. Normally, we don’t make a practice of calling out rumors. We want to believe that most people here have above average intelligence and can decipher a hoax, especially one this far-fetched, even when it streams in their social media news feed. We still believe this. When you call out a rumor, you must repeat the rumor for the clarification and sometimes that backfires into more publicity for the hoax. But, when there’s an attack on our community that is this serious, one that is degrading, dismantling and a detractor for economic development, current business growth and improving our way of life, we will be the first to rise up and defend Lake City and Columbia County. We have our problems and our challenges in Lake City and Columbia County, but they are our problems and we will work together and fix them. We all know that being a crime capital is NOT one of our issues. Sure, there are occasional incidents, but far less than most places. Your business, your home and your family are safe here. That’s the message we need to share on social media. So if you see it, don’t share the hoax on your social media network. Even when you type a snarky comment and disagree, you still help perpetuate the hoax by sharing the false crime information, which is exactly what the California blogger behind this wants to happen. Let’s share accurate information about Lake City and Columbia County. Quit playing games with TDC post To the Editor:“I am pulling this simply because I have the power to do it.” And with those words spoken by Commissioner Ron Williams, the mismanaged pro-cess of hiring a new director for the TDC continues, apparently with no end in sight. The process hit a bump in the road early on requiring the need to reopen the application process due to the failure to list the position in appropriate trade publications. Under the circum-stances, that is an understand-able oversight. After all, there has been quite a bevy of upper management positions needing to be filled in Columbia County lately. But making a decision on this particular position has pro-vided much fodder for discus-sion and suspicion. Let’s start with the obvious. Gary Pearce Jr. should have never made the top four to begin with. Obviously, his credentials are quite stellar, and there is little doubt that if given the opportunity he would most likely be successful in promoting tourism throughout the Suwannee Valley region. However, the inescapable fact that his recent in-field salary was almost double the salary being offered by Columbia County should have been dis-cussed and resolved prior to placing his on the list of the final four. Evidently it was not. On September 18, the Lake City Reporter stated that it is County Manager Dale Williams who will make the decision on which candidate to offer the position, and the goal of Friday (September 19) was still in place. He is again quoted on September 21 saying “all four candidates bring strengths to the table and any one would be a good person for us to hire.” Then, the following week the TDC advisory board voted on a formal resolution to recommend Mr. Pearce as their unanimous choice. This move on their part set up all of the confusion and indecisiveness that has fol-lowed. Commissioner Williams, who sits on both the board of County Commissioners and the TDC advisory board, should have foreseen the coming con-flict and taken steps to avoid it. For this advisory board to place the county manager in this posi-tion is irresponsible to say the least. In reference to Mr. Pearce, Commissioner Williams said in Friday’s Lake City Reporter it appeared games were being played. Commissioner Williams is right. But with only a few exceptions, it takes two to play. It would be good for Columbia County if he would use his aforementioned “power” to stop the games and get the job done.

By SARAH The Lake City Reporter got locals’ opinions on Amendment 2, which would legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes, and many say they’re for it. One Lake City resident, Christine Barrett, said she thinks medical mari juana should be legalized because it’s a natural form of medicine. Other pain medicines are worse than marijuana is, she said. Barrett said she knows some people will abuse it, but she still thinks it should be legalized. If strict conditions regarding how people can get it are implemented, then it won’t be abused that much, she said. Many pharmacists con tact the doctor who wrote a prescription before fill ing it for a patient, and she would like to see the same thing happen when patients go to medical treatment centers to get marijuana, she said. Mark Piper said he’s for marijuana being used for medicinal purposes, but he’s concerned that if med ical marijuana is legalized, it will be abused by people who don’t really need it. He said he’s seen peo ple get hurt from it and is afraid of that happening if marijuana is legalized. Angel Posey, another Lake city resident, is also for legalizing medical mar ijuana. “If it’s for medical pur poses, it would be nice for the people who really need it,” she said. But while she sees the positive effects of medical marijuana, she also sees the downside to legaliz ing it — how easily it will get abused, Posey said. She said she’s con cerned it will get abused like prescrip tion drugs already do. Ben Danielek agrees that marijuana for medic inal purposes should be legalized. One of his reasons for wanting marijuana to get legalized is that it will help boost the economy since it’s had that effect in other states like Washington and Colorado, he said. Danielek also said that it’s no worse than alcohol or cigarettes, which are already legal, so marijuana should be as well. Not only is marijuana not worse than alcohol or smoking tobacco, it’s been scientifically proven to help ease pain, Danielek said. Some research shows that marijuana helps ease pain, while other research hasn’t found that marijua na works well as a pain killer. “If they want to use it to make them feel better, why would you want to stop them?” Danielek said. For Danielek, legalizing marijuana is also a per sonal matter. He said his fiance’s father has cancer, and he believes marijuana would help ease his pain. Danielek’s fiance, Lacy Duncan, said she thinks medical marijuana would help a lot of people, not just her father. She said marijuana is proven to relieve stress and is less harmful than other pain medications. “Being hooked on pain pills is a lot more danger ous than smoking to take away the pain,” Duncan said. Tracy Scott has a differ ent opinion on the matter. He said marijuana is just as addicting and habit-form ing as prescription pain medications and doesn’t think it should be legal. 6A SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 NOTICE OF MEETING AIRPORT ADVISORY COMMITTEE CITY OF LAKE CITY NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Airport Advisory Committee for the City of Lake City, Florida will hold a meeting on Monday, Octob er 6, 2014 at 6:00 P.M., in the Council Chambers located on the second floor of Ci ty Hall at 205 North Marion Avenue, Lake City, Florida.

Doctors wouldn’t write prescriptions for marijuana because it’s not an FDA-approved medicine with controlled doses. Instead, patients would get the marijuana at state-li censed facilities called medical treatment centers. Marijuana growers will also have to be state-licensed, although it’s not yet clear what medical treatment centers and growers will have to do to get state-certified. Caregivers in possession of patients’ mar ijuana have to be 21 years or older, but there is no minimum age for patients. The Department of Health will determine how much marijuana a patient can have at a time. If the amendment is passed, it will become effective on Jan. 6, and after that, the Department of Health will have six months to implement regulations and nine months to issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. An ad opposing the amendment was released by the Drug Free Florida Committee on Monday. The ad questions the fact that the amendment allows care givers to have possession of their patients’ marijuana, saying the amendment protects drug dealers. The ad says that while allow ing caregivers possession of their patients’ marijuana seems like a safeguard, it’s actually a loophole that lets people have marijuana who shouldn’t have it. People United for Medical Marijuana released an ad on the same day that says legalizing medical marijuana is respecting doctor-patient confidentiality. Columbia County Sheriff’s Office pub lic information officer Murray Smith said CCSO is against Amendment 2, not because it doesn’t want people to get the medical care they need, but because of how vague the amendment is. The amendment doesn’t specify in what cases marijuana can be used for, he said. He also said the medical community is mixed on the effectiveness of marijuana as a painkiller. But CCSO will follow the will of the vot ers, he said. If medical marijuana is legalized, CCSO, along with other sheriff’s offices and police departments across the state, will become a lot busier as they work to ensure that only those who legally are allowed to have mari juana have it, Murray said. He said if marijuana is legalized it won’t change how deputies handle drivers who are driving under the influence. When a deputy suspects a driver is under the influence, the driver is given a field sobriety test to determine if the individual is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. AMENDMENTContinued From 1AWhat locals have to say Barrett Piper Posey Duncan Danielek time I’ve had horses,” she said. “Prior to that it was just a big, open field I had to mow.” However, now the field is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and water moc casins. When Old Wire Road was paved, “the county banked the road in my direction, put in a culvert and they took out about a dozen 200-year old oak trees that were on an embankment that pre vented water from coming onto my property,” she said. “... The mosquitoes and snakes are terrible,” she said. “We killed 16 snakes in matter of 10 days.” Bennett estimates the road improvements where made about two years ago. “When Tropical Storm Debby came through, that was the beginning of not being able to get rid of water,” she said. “The water flowed from an uninhabited agriculture piece of land across the road that had a cypress pond. That’s where the infestation of water moccasins has come from. I’ve never killed a water moccasin here before.” The snake infestation has become such an issue that Bennett said she can no longer rent trailer homes she owns because people are afraid of encountering water moccasins. Bennett, who owns about 33 acres on her homesite and adjoining property, said when she purchased the land more than two decades ago, it was part of an old dairy farm with no driveways, electricity or buildings. “I keep eight horses here, but I’ve had to send some horses off,” she said. “I have three other mares and babies in Live Oak because I have no place to put them. Because of the flooding I’ve had to do temporary fencing and pastures. I had to buy seven and a half acres that adjoined my property on the southside but because I have such high boarding bills and my feed bills for hay is such a constant, I don’t have money to fence it right now and it’s not fair to my horses.” Bennett’s front yard serves as a pasture for at least four horses, which roam and graze in the tem porary pastures. She has four temporary pastures in her yard because her main pasture has been flooded for the past 18 months. Bennett estimates that the main pasture that suc cumbed to flooding for more than a year is about three acres. She said she divided the three-acre space down the middle with plans of rotating the horses to the two areas to let the grass grow as the horses alternated pastures. “I divided it down the middle so I would have two separate areas...,” she said, noting she also installed a gate just before the paving of the road. “The fence and posts are totally under water, which means it’s more than five feet deep. There is four and a half feet of fence, six inches of post above the fence and you cannot see it down in the middle of the pasture. There have been times when you couldn’t see the gate.” Bennett said a small retention pond near the road once handled the flow, but since the road was redesigned and paved, it can no longer hold all the water that travels onto her property. “It’s in the 100-year flood plain,” she said. “This prop erty slopes very slowly and if we had bad storms there would be about 2-3 inches of water (in the pasture). The retention pond han dled everything it needed to handle until they started throwing more water in it. Bennett said she spoke to her county commission er, Scarlet Frisina, about the problem and a repre sentative from the county road department visited her property and looked at the culvert situation. “I’ve never had them come back with any plan,” she said. “Mrs. Frisina is very nice and we’ve spoken to her three times. I’m not a troublemaker and I’ve dealt with it and dealt with it, but at Thursday night’s com mission meeting figured I needed to say something because they were talking about it (flooding and mit igation). Officials did not specif ically address Bennett’s problem at the meeting and only took her name and number promising to speak with her later. Bennett said county offi cials are now aware of the problem and she hopes they are working towards a resolution. She has a meet ing scheduled with them at 8:30 a.m. Monday. Bennett believes there is a simple resolution to the problem. “They need to reassess the size of the retention pond they built,” she said. “I was promised that I would be able to have fish for mosquito control, but they didn’t dig the retention pond deep enough, nor did they make it big enough for the amount of water.” Frisina did not immedi ately return a call from the Lake City Reporter seeking comment. FLOODINGContinued From 1A COURTESYHorses are seen grazing in Shirley Bennett’s pasture before the field flooded two years ago. investment and waited for the right time to sell the farm. The other farm proper ty sold to Lakeland Sands was a family-owned farm in Georgia known as the Vidalia Onion Farm, which was a little over 5,000 acres and sold for around $53 million, Ward said. The onion farm was placed at a higher value because Ward said it not only was a farm, but also a business. He said the farm had refrigerator facilities, packing sheds and other valuable assets. The deal took about nine months to complete, but he said it closed around the same time as Seldom Rest. SOLDContinued From 1A

The first day of the 40th Annual Suwannee Valley Kennel Club Dog Show took place Saturday morning at the Columbia County Fairgrounds with close to 600 dogs representing more than 100 breeds. Caroline Coile, of Live Oak, Show Chair and president of the Suwannee Valley Kennel Club, said the event is a conformation, obedience and rally show, where judges see how well the dogs conform to their breed standards. The second day of the event will begin 9 this morning. Admission is free and parking is $5. Its actually the same show both days but we had different judges and in obedience, its a second chance for the dogs that screwed up the first day to maybe do a little better the second day, Coile said. Ten judges came from as far away as Texas and North Carolina to judge the show. The event is so popular because everybody loves doing stuff with their dogs and everybody shows off their dog, Coile said. With a lot of people thats just it they like to come out and talk to other people who like to talk about their dogs and play with their dogs. Its really a fun outing for most dogs. In addition to the opportunity to win the Best In Show Award at the event, Coile said a lot of the dogs are in competition for national rankings, where they get points for how many dogs they defeat at each show. The dogs were judged in seven groups: Sporting, hounds, working, terrier, nonsporting, herding and toy divisions. The seven group winners will compete for the Best In Show Award. We think its a lot of fun, Coile said.Dog lovers gather at fairgrounds Photos by TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterGinger Raber grooms Leah, a Shih Tzu, before competition on Saturday at the 40th Annual Suwannee Valley Kennel Club dog show.

Tigers knock off Orange Park, 28-0, in District 3-6A contestBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comORANGE PARK — Columbia High didn’t have to break out the chocolate chip cookie dough, but it turned into a rocky road of offense as the Tigers kept things vanilla against Orange Park High in a 28-0 win in District 3-6A play on Friday. “It was a game we didn’t need to go in and do a bunch of game planning,” Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. “We wanted to be as vanilla as possible without getting into trouble. We wanted to be as vanilla as possible so we didn’t show a lot. Now Ed White has to go out and do a bunch of digging to find some stuff in film.” Allen was referring to this week’s upcoming showdown for the District 3-6A Championship against Ed White High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in Lake City. But first, it was about taking care of business against the Raiders. The Tigers defense was dominant in the first half, holding the Raiders to -26 total yards. It helped Columbia build a 14-0 lead. Will Bowen had a sack on the Raiders’ first offensive drive and Alec Norton recovered a block punt to set the Tigers up at the 15-yard line. Columbia needed only three plays to score. Jake Thomas put the Tigers on the board with an 11-yard touch-down pass to Latrell Williams. Hunter Houston added the extra point to give Columbia a 7-0 lead with 7:19 remain-ing in the first quarter. Columbia ended the game with Thomas to start against Ed White Coach gives QB vote of confidence. CHS continued on 3B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia head coach Brian Allen isn’t con-cerned with statistics. He’s sticking with his man after naming Jake Thomas the Tigers’ start-er heading into Friday’s 28-0 win at Orange Park. Thomas didn’t have his best game, but Allen remained faithful after a 5-of-19 perfor-mance in which he was outplayed by backup Davin Schuck. Thomas threw for 37 yards and a touchdown, but also fum-bled and threw an inter-ception. On the other hand, role player Schuck completed 4-of-7 passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 21 yards on three carries. While Allen said that both quarterbacks will play throughout the rest of the season, he also said that all the blame doesn’t fall on Thomas this week. He wants him to know he has his back heading into a District 3-6A showdown for the championship against Ed White High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in Lake City. “He’s the starter,” Allen said. “We’ll have packag-es for Davin, but it’s time to stop with all the back and forth stuff. I was not as critical of Jake, and although I was yelling at him during the game, it QB continued on 3B MEGAN REEVES /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s Cameron White rounds the corner agains t Fernandina Beach on Friday. Homecoming blowout for Fort WhiteBy SHAYNE MORGANSpecial to the ReporterFORT WHITE — It was opening night in District 2-4A play and also home-coming night for the Fort White Indians as they host-ed the Fernandina Beach Pirates on Friday. The Pirates were no match for the stout Indian defense and a very impres-sive running game as Fort White hammered out a 34-0 victory. Donald Robinson was the leading rusher with 11 car-ries for 171 yards including a 62-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The Indians improved to 4-1, overall and 1-0 in district play while the Pirates fell to 1-4 overall and 0-1 in the district 2-4A race. Head Coach Demetric Jackson was proud of his team and knows it’s impor-tant to start district play off strong. “With all of the distractions, with homecoming, they understood what was at stake and they took care of business out on the field, Indians force Pirates to surrender, 34-0 INDIANS continued on 3B BRIEFS GAMES Monday Q Fort White High volleyball vs. Newberry High, 6 p.m. Tuesday Q Columbia High swim team at Nease, Oakleaf high schools in Jacksonville, 4:30 p.m. Q Columbia High boys golf vs. Santa Fe High at The Country Club at Lake City, 4 p.m. Q Columbia High volleyball at Gainesville, 6:30 p.m. Q Fort White volleyball at Lafayette High, 6 p.m. Thursday Q Columbia High boys golf in Alachua County tournament, 12 p.m. Q Columbia High girls golf team in Jill Darr Invitational, 12 p.m. Q Columbia High volleyball at Orange Park High, 6:30 p.m. Friday Q Columbia High football vs. Ed White High, 7:30 p.m. Q Fort White High volleyball vs. Columbia High, 6:30 p.m. Saturday Q Columbia High cross-country at Bobcat Classic, 8 a.m. GOLF Junior Classic on Oct. 25-26 Lake City junior golfers ages 11-18 are invited to compete in the AJGT Beaver Creek Fall Junior Classic in Zachary, LA at the Beaver Creek Golf Club on Oct. 25 – 26.

Gators survive Vols, 10-9Associated PressKNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Florida relied on some unlikely stars to continue its decade-long mastery of Tennessee in an improb-able manner. Austin Hardin made his first field goal of the sea-son — a 49-yarder with 6:20 remaining — as Florida erased a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit Saturday to beat Tennessee 10-9 for its 10th straight victory in this annual series. Florida (3-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) staged the comeback behind freshman quarterback Treon Harris, who led both the Gators’ scoring drives after replacing an ineffective Jeff Driskel late in the third quarter. “It wasn’t always pretty,” Florida coach Will Muschamp said. “We did the things we had to, espe-cially down nine on the road in the fourth quarter. You make a quarterback change, and our guys didn’t blink. They responded to it.” Muschamp praised Harris’ composure in leading the comeback but wouldn’t indicate who would start at quarterback next week against No. 15 LSU. Harris entered the game after Driskel went 11 of 23 for 59 yards with three interceptions. “We won’t make any decision on who’s going to start our next ballgame today,” Muschamp said. “It was a very emotional win. We’re going to go home, we’re going to watch the film, we’re going to see why we’re not offensively doing some things we feel like are there. It wasn’t all on Jeff.” Matt Jones rushed for 114 yards and had a 32-yard run to set up Hardin’s win-ning kick. Tennessee drove into Florida territory in the final minute before Keanu Neal sealed the victory by intercepting a Justin Worley pass at the Florida 23 with 51 seconds left. Aaron Medley kicked three field goals for Tennessee (2-3, 0-2), which lost for the third straight time. “I’m not going to make any excuses,” Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. “We didn’t get it done. Case closed.” Seminoles make statement against Wake Forest, 43-3Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo kicked a career-high five field goals in a single game as the top-ranked Seminoles eased to a 43-3 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday. The reigning Lou Groza Award winner also set a school record with 21 con-secutive field goals. The FSU defense dominated the overmatched Demon Deacons (2-4, 0-2) and held them to 126 offen-sive yards, including 40 rushing. Linebacker Reggie Northrup forced and recov-ered a fumble and ran it 31 yards for a touchdown that put Florida State up 30-3 in the third quarter. Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 297 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Wake Forest quarterback John Wolford was held to 58 yards passing and an interception. The game took its toll on Florida State (5-0, 3-0) as leading receiver Rashad Greene (concussion) and starting center Austin Barron (arm) both left and did not return.No. 11 Mississippi 23, No. 3 Alabama 17OXFORD, Miss. — Bo Wallace threw for 251 yards and three touch-downs, including two in the fourth quarter, and No. 11 Mississippi rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit to stun No. 3 Alabama 23-17 on Saturday. Ole Miss (5-0, 2-0 SEC) has won five games to start the season for the first time since 1962 and ended a 10-game losing streak against the Tide. The Rebels trailed 1710 midway through the fourth quarter, but pulled even on Wallace’s 34-yard touchdown pass to Vince Sanders with 5:29 remaining. On the ensuing kickoff, Alabama’s Christion Jones fumbled and Ole Miss recovered, giving the Rebels great field position at the Alabama 31. Ole Miss took a 23-17 lead on Wallace’s 10-yard touchdown throw to Jaylen Walton with 2:54 remain-ing. Alabama (4-1, 1-1) had a chance to win, but Senquez Golson intercepted a pass from Blake Sims in the end zone with 37 seconds remaining.No. 9 Notre Dame 17, No. 14 Stanford 14SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Everett Golson threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Ben Koyack in the cor-ner of the end zone with 61 seconds left as No. 9 Notre Dame overcame two turnovers and two bungled snaps on field goal attempts on a cold, rainy Saturday to beat No. 14 Stanford 17-14. Koyack was alone in the corner and Golson almost didn’t find him in time. But Koyack caught the pass as he fell out of bounds and safety Jordan Richards dove to try to break it up on Notre Dame’s last chance on fourth-and-11. The Fighting Irish improved to 5-0 for just the third time since Lou Holtz left in 1996.


Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER FOOTBALL SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 3B3BSPORTS seven sacks and received four from Will Bowen. Laquavious Paul had two and Malachi Jean finished with one. Five of the Tigers’ sacks came in the first half. The last sack helped the Tigers start near the 40 on their other first half scor-ing drive. This time, it was Davin Schuck leading the charge. Schuck connected with Caleb Carswell on a 30-yard post route to give the Tigers a 14-0 lead heading into the half. Schuck led the Tigers on two more scoring drives in the second half. The first, he was the leader of the charge. Schuck con-nected with Williams on a 21-yard pass, scrambled for 16 yards and then hit Williams for a 32-yard score to give Columbia a 21-0 lead with 9:16 remain-ing in the fourth quarter. The final drive of the game was all about Daylon Sheppard. Sheppard had four carries and concluded the game with a 10-yard score with 18 seconds left in the game to make the final 28-0. It was a third-straight shutout for the Tigers’ defense as Columbia gave up only 64 total yards in the game. “I’m extremely proud of this defense,” Allen said. “I don’t know a time we’ve had three back-to-back shutouts. We’ve had a sea-son with five, but to be this dominate is special. I always say that defense wins championships and that offense fills the stands.” The Tigers will find out this Friday if that state-ment holds true when the Commandeers come call-ing. “The fun begins next week,” Allen told the team after the game. “This is why we play all these other games. I expect to be focused all week. I expect everyone sharp and ready to execute on Friday. We played for next Friday. We want home field advan-tage. The cupcakes are over and it’s time to put on our big boy pants. This is payback for last year and it’s going to be in the jungle.” CHS: Ready for Ed White rematch Continued From Page 1B was to encourage him. He had some misthrows here and there, but he’s still the guy. I want him to play like he’s the guy.” And while Allen reassured Thomas that he’s the Tigers’ guy going forward, he also sent a public endorsement to Schuck. Columbia will still mix him in the action. “Each week we’re going to have a package for Schuck,” Allen said. “Davin knows and understands the offense. There won’t be a game that he sits this season. I expect him to go when we need him. I expect him to go this season.” QB: From Page 1B BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Jake Thomas throws a pass against Oran ge Park High on Friday. BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Will Bowen (22) waits for a call from the sideline in Friday’s 28-0 win over Orange Park. ‘Bowen’ upBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High’s defense is playing at a level even head coach Brian Allen doesn’t remember. Pitching a shutout in any game is an impressive feat and the Tigers made it three straight with a 28-0 win against Orange Park High on Friday. It turned into a sack party for the Tigers and Will Bowen was leading the charge with four in the game. Bowen said after the game that he’s fine out of the spotlight and he’s happy to give credit to those around him. “It’s just other guys doing their job,” Bowen said. “The defense did a great job and Brandon Maxwell was setting me up to pur-sue the ball. That’s what preach every day in prac-tice. We start every practice on defense with a pursuit drill.” Bowen said the defense is playing as well as he can remember, and that’s a product of the coaching they have received. “It’s just coach (Dennis) Dotson and (Chris) Martinez’s coaching,” Bowen said. “It’s constant reps coming from last year and practice. Every day, we’re getting it in practice.” Bowen said that at times practice has felt much tough-er than what Columbia has seen on Friday. “We work so hard,” Bowen said. “When you work as hard as we do, it comes easily. We prac-tice tough and when you go against guys like Doug Johnson and Kody Mixon, sometimes it’s easier in the game.” Senior registers four sacks against Orange Park High INDIANS: Head into second bye Continued From Page so I’m extremely proud of our guys,” Jackson said. The Pirates had deferred their option to the sec-ond half and Fort White chose to take possession of the ball first. Cameron White fielded a squib kick by Fernandina Beach and returned it 27 yards to the Fernandina 41 yard line. It didn’t take long for the Indians to convert the opening score, White carried the ball in from the eight yard line of the Pirates and Fernandina Beach was down 7-0 fol-lowing Brandon Shrum’s extra point, Shrum would finish the night 4 of 5 on extra point attempts. Late in the first quarter Donald Robinson scored his third touchdown in two games, this time a 62 yard scamper that extended the Fort White lead to 14-0 at the end of the first quar-ter. Blair Chapman had a strong run of this own, going 30 yards for a touch-down that extended the lead out to 21-0 at the half. In the game both teams fumbled the ball twice and lost those fumbles. White added his second touchdown run of the night in the third quarter, as he took a handoff 60 yards for the touchdown the extra point attempt was no good so with 1:11 to play in the third quarter the Indians were up by a score of 27-0. In the fourth quarter, the final score of the night was a CJ McCoy 57 yard interception return. This time the conversion was good and it provided the final margin of 34-0. Coach Jackson talked about the importance of being able to get some guys that don’t normally play into the game. “It was very critical for us to get some guys in that haven’t played a whole lot and get them some expe-rience,” he said. “We are proud of all of them.” It was another stellar performance for Fort White. The Pirates actually finished the game with more rushing attempts (35) than yards (23). The Indians outgained the Pirates 426 to 99 in net yards on the night, and zero points on the scoreboard. White finished his night with 12 carries for 143 yards and the two touch-downs. The Indians will have the week off and then head to play the Madison Cowboys at 7:30 p.m on Oct. 17. Jackson knows it’s a tough schedule ahead. “We’ve got to keep grinding,” Jackson said. “There are going to be some teams a lot tougher than Fernandina, and we have some room to improve, but we’re headed in the right direction.” MEGAN REEVES /Lake City ReporterFort White coach Demetric Jackson speaks to the team after a 34-0 win over Fernandina Beach High on Friday.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 6BSports I recently attended a conference where it was proclaimed and accepted that were expe riencing a modern day Industrial Revolution. We are literally connected to the entire world through technology with the click of the button, in mere sec onds. Not weeks, days, or even minutes, in one sec ond I can send a tweet that people will see in every country. The first-ever air strikes in Syria against ISIS were first reported not by CNN, FoxNews, or the Associated Press. They were first report ed by the Twitter user Abdulkader Hariri 30 minutes before anyone else in any national news agency. The game has changed. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, are worldwide. There are 1.23 billion (thats a B) active users on Facebook now. On our Facebook page for Outdoors360, we average about 2,000 people that see an average photo, story, or video. Weve now surpassed 3,500 fans in just a few months. Several of our videos have reached close to 100,000 people on Facebook, and our biggest video on YouTube passed 175,000 views earlier this week. The numbers will make your head spin, but the bottom line for me personally, is that I have faster and easier access to the incredible outdoor videos and stories I hear about. Two recent examples are videos that featured a 19 year-old merman with a spear, and a group of friends who free-gaffed a 100-pound tuna in a canal! I was able to do some digging, and track down the original fisherman, and help publicize their stories through our website and ultimately get their videos on YouTube. The first story involves Steel Rocket (Yes, this is his real name!), who freedove over 90-feet, then shot around several goliath grouper, and connected with a 60-pound black grouper. At just 19 years old, Steel can hold his breath (static) for about four minutes, and can free dive at depths of close to 120feet. With a name like Steel Rocket, you could say he was destined to spearfish aka sling steel. On this trip, Steel was free diving off of the Dry Tortugas in 94-feet of water. He noticed several Goliath Grouper in the area, but something else was with them. It ended up weighing 53-pounds after it was gutted, and proved to be Steels biggest freediving grouper (Hes shot a 70-pounder while scubadiving). After the first few dives I noticed something hanging around the goliaths that didnt fit with them. After I prepped up to make my descent down to the goliaths I saw the fish the 60-pound black grouper. I slowly fell towards it, once the goliaths that were in front of the black saw me, they took off, scaring the black, so I had to quickly take the shot, which ended up hitting the fish behind the gills and proved to be a holding shot. His father is a commercial spear fisherman, and he used to dive with legends of the sport like Manny Puig and Mark Rackley on multiple day Dry Tortugas trips. His grandmother owns one of the oldest dive shops in the keys, and his late grandfather dove and spearfished as well. His mother spearfishes as well, and can free dive around 80-feet. Its safe to say that Steel will be spearfishing for many more years to come. The next viral video starts in Islamorada, Florida with Capt. Alex Hare of Destin, Floridas Silver King Charters. Hare has been a full time charter captain since he turned 18 in 2009, and knows big fish. We catch marlin, tuna, dolphin and more, Hare says, the blue water out of Destin is about 110-miles. While sitting inside during a rainstorm Hare and his group of friends noticed something. We could see a big fish swimming back and forth in the canal, he described. We thought it might be a tarpon chasing mullet. One neighbor thought it was a shark, another a barracuda. They curiously walked down to check it out for themselves. It swam up to us on the dock and we knew exactly what it was, a big-eye tuna. As most true sportsmen they were now in it for the hunt. Could they possibly catch this out-of-place tuna? And how? Hare asked a boat owner for a gaff and some rope, and the owner said why not. I tied the rope to the gaff, got on my hands and knees, and the tuna swam right up to the dock! I stuck it right in the back, a perfect shot. From there we got the second gaff in it and knew we had it. After the miraculous event happened, the fish was filleted and distributed to nearly 100 people who were there to see it happen. It must have been 1215 families, everyone took some. We were filling up bags and everyone was happy. It was an amazing feeling for a once in a lifetime event. Its an exciting time, because more and more of these fish stories are going to happen and be verified with new technol ogy. Maybe were enter ing the Golden Age of the Outdoor Revolution? Regardless, buckle-up, its going to be a fun time for anyone who loves the out doors! Rob Chapman IV is a tournament-winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

By TONY BRITT T he Columbia County Library and its three branches provide a myriad of services for resi dents to access visual and audio information and data. According to records from the Columbia County Public Library, from Oct. 1, 2012 Sept. 30, 2013 (the latest figures available), there were 252,555 visits to local libraries. The Columbia County Public libraries employ 25 people, three at the two branch libraries and the remainder at the main library. However, with more than a quarter of a million visits annually, the library has funding issues that library and county officials hope to address soon. County officials transferred $538,429 in the 201415 fiscal budget so the three libraries could remain open and operating at the same level of service. County and library officials are hoping to find other ways to fund the library for next years budget. Ron Williams, Columbia County Commission chairman, noted that Columbia County was rated as Floridas seventh most financially sound county two years ago and that the board doesnt normally spend non-recurring revenue on a recurring expense, as was done this year to keep the libraries operating at the current level.

I would like to invite the com-munity out to the annual Trunk or Treat/National Night Out/Safety Bash which will be held on Friday, October 24 begin-ning at 6:00 p.m. at the new Darby Pavilion around Lake DeSoto. We have partnered up with the Lake City Police Department and Lake City Fire Department to make this Trunk or Treat bigger and better than ever before! We will have lots of free candy, bounce houses, live musical entertainment, food vendors, a costume parade and we will finish the night off with a movie on the lawn, “Despicable Me.” Lake DeSoto will even be glowing with bonfires! It is a night of free family fun that you don’t want to miss! If you love Halloween and would like to volunteer to decorate your car as one of the “trunks” and pass out candy, please call us at the chamber office. We provide all of the candy! If you would like more information on becoming a chamber member or any of the events above, please give me a call at 752-3690 or visit our website at CHAMBERContinued From Page 1C ity of commissioners to spend more than $10,000 and deem it a recurring expense. The board voted unanimously to fund the library in that fashion this budget year. “We believe that libraries are a big foundation of the community,” Williams said after the county adopted its 2014-15 fiscal budget. “Next year we want to come up with a way to fund the libraries without taking it out of non-recurring revenue.” Williams said the commission is asking the state to increase funding for libraries, small counties and fiscally con-strained small counties. “We also hope the tax roll will continue to grow and we’ll have additional dollars to fund the libraries,” he said. The Columbia County Public Library provides traditional services like provid-ing books, magazines, audio books, chil-dren books and a variety of media and materials people can check-out and take with them. The local libraries also provide information services and e-government services and public computer access for residents who don’t own computers that need to apply for unemployment, food stamps, Medicaid or Social Security. The libraries have e-books, audio books, adult literacy programs and offer English as a second language classes, GED testing help and children services. The library’s mission statement is: The Columbia County Public Library provides physical and digital access to information, literacy services, student support, materials for reading, listening and viewing pleasure and courteous, professional assistance from the staff. Deborah “Debbie” Paulson, Columbia County Library Director, said lack of funding causes issues and there are issues that cause the funding not to exist. “The tax rolls are not what they were a few years ago so the county is collect-ing less money,” she said. “That affects not only the library, but it certainly affects the whole county.” A few years ago county commissioners cut the library’s general fund budget by approximately $300,000 and made up the difference with the library’s reserve funding. The library also received state aid and if all of that funding isn’t spent, it would go into the library reserves. “After 25 years or so there was quite a bit of money in reserves, so the com-missioners choose to spend down all the library reserves and that’s where we are today,” Paulson said. “That’s why they put in that extra money this year so we could keep all three libraries open. The challenge is where is all this money going to come from next year.” When the commission cut the library general fund budget (mostly the main branch library and Fort White library) that impacted the amount of state aid going to the local libraries. “We used to receive $700,000 a year in state aid and now we’re down to $219,000,” Paulson said. Paulson said the local library system’s five-year plan has to be redone next year. In order to get state funding, each library has to do a five-year plan and the current Columbia County five-year plan expires in 2015. Paulson said she expects funding to be a huge issue as they work on the plan. She said it’s hard to find alternative funding. “A dedicated funding source would definitely ensure a future for the library,” Paulson said. “... To have a recurring fund for the libraries would certainly be much easier than this year when com-missioners had to come up with some funds to keep everybody open.” Additional ways to create get more funding for the library would be to cre-ate an independent taxing district or a dependent taxing district. Paulson said Alachua County has been an independent taxing district for years and Jacksonville is just starting to work on the process. She said Union County libraries are a dependent taxing district, where resi-dents vote on a referendum to continue funding the library every few years. “I don’t really know the solution at this point,” Paulson said. LIBRARYContinued From Page 1C Dow jumps 208 on job gains; gold fallsBy BERNARD CONDONAP Business WriterNEW YORK — Investors think the U.S. economy is at a perfect temperature for stocks: not too hot, not too cold. The latest evidence came Friday in a jobs report that showed a pickup in hir-ing last month that could mean more peo-ple with paychecks, more spending and higher corporate profits. But the report also showed that wages were stagnant, which cheered investors worried any-thing pushing up inflation could prompt the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates soon and kill the rally. All major stock indexes rose sharply. The Dow Jones industrial average closed 208 points higher. The rally started from the open and swept up nearly every kind of stock, small and large, and in almost every industry. All 10 sectors in the Standard and Poor’s 500 index rose. “The solid payroll report is great for economic growth and stock prices,” said Anastasia Amoroso, global market strate-gist at J.P. Morgan Funds. The good news pushed up the value of the dollar against other major currencies to the highest level in more than four years. U.S. bonds and gold fell as inves-tors fled traditional “safe haven” assets. U.S. employers added 248,000 jobs in September, beating market expecta-tions of a 215,000, the Labor Department reported. The hiring helped drive down the unemployment rate to 5.9 percent, the lowest since July 2008. Hiring in July and August was also stronger than ini-tially estimated. Still, average hourly wages fell a penny last month, the Labor Department report-ed. Wages are now up just 2 percent in the past year. “Wage inflation essentially came in zero, and that tells you that the Fed won’t be in any rush to raise interest rates,” said James Abate, managing director of Centre Asset Management. The Dow rose 208.64, or 1.2 percent, to 17,009.69. It was the third 200-point move in a little over a week as markets turn more volatile. The S&P 500 index climbed 21.73 points, or 1.1 percent, to 1,967.90. The Nasdaq composite rose 45.43 points, or 1 percent, to 4,447.62. Earlier in the week, investors were rattled by a sharp drop in small-company stocks, pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, and falling oil prices that hurt energy compa-nies, big components in stock indexes. Even with the gains on Friday, all three indexes ended more than half a percent lower for the week, adding to losses last week. Many economists predict the Fed will wait until mid-2015 to start raising rates, then proceed with further hikes slowly.

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5-11, 2014Account Name 00000By DAVID KOENIGAP Airlines WriterDALLAS United Airlines said Thursday it is notifying passengers who were on flights with a man later diagnosed with Ebola and telling them how to contact federal health officials. United said it is also telling passengers that officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believe the man could not have spread the disease during the flights because he was not showing symptoms and was not yet contagious. On Sept. 19, Thomas Eric Duncan flew from Liberia in the heart of western Africa's Ebola outbreak zone to Belgium on a Brussels Airlines flight, according to Belgian officials. United said it believes that Duncan flew the next day on United Flight 951 from Brussels to Dulles International Airport near Washington and connected to Flight 822 from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. United officials declined to say how many passengers were on the flights. The Brussels-toDulles flight was on a Boeing 777 that has 266 seats, and the flight to Dallas used an Airbus A320 with 138 seats. In a statement, the airline said Thursday that the two planes underwent their routine overnight "thorough cleaning" after the flights, "including cleaning of lavatories and galleys with heavy-duty all-purpose cleaners and wiping tray tables and armrests with disinfectant." Duncan remained in a hospital isolation ward on Thursday. According to health officials, he became sick and went to a Dallas hospital on Sept. 25, but was released, only to return by ambulance three days later and test positive for Ebola. The airline industry and its labor unions worked Thursday to tamp down travelers' fears about Ebola. The Air Line Pilots Association, which represents pilots at United and other carriers, said airlines have the authority under U.S. law to deny boarding to passengers who appear ill. The union said it also had "full confidence" in procedures to contain the Ebola outbreak, including checking passengers for fever a key symptom at airports in western Africa. Duncan did not have a fever when he left Liberia. But authorities there said Thursday that they will charge him with lying on a health-screening form he filled out at the airport for not disclosing that he had helped carry a woman who became ill and died of Ebola. The disease is believed to have sickened more than 7,100 people in West Africa and killed more than 3,300, according to the World Health Organization.Planemates of Ebola patient sought Man landed at Dallas-Fort Worth after leaving Ebola outbreak zone in Liberia. By ALICIA A. CALDWELL and JOSH LEDERMANAssociated PressWASHINGTON With the dust still settling from a series of embarrassing security failures that marred the Secret Service's reputation and forced its director to resign, the agency is starting the arduous and public task of rebuilding itself. The Obama administration has called for an independent panel to take a look at the agency from top to bottom and make recommendations for a permanent successor for ousted Director Julia Pierson. But that will take months. White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Thursday that President Barack Obama won't name a new permanent director until Dec. 15, at the earliest. That's the deadline for completing a separate, internal probe into what went wrong on Sept. 19, when a fence-jumper carrying a knife was able to run deep into the executive mansion. The independent panel will draw on the results of that investigation to determine what qualities the agency's new leader should possess, Schultz said. In the meantime, Deputy Director A.T. Smith will be in charge until Monday, when Joseph Clancy, a former head of the service's presidential protective division, takes the helm on an interim basis. But presidential security must continue. Thursday the president was in Illinois for a speech on the economy, and uniformed officers patrolled the grounds of the White House including the new, second layer of temporary fencing put up the day after the fence-jumper made it inside the building. Todd Keil, a former Homeland Security Department assistant secretary for infrastructure protection, said despite the public turmoil in the aftermath of two security breaches last month the agency "needs to continue to fly the plane. They can't lose sight of that." In the immediate aftermath of last month's breach at the White House, Obama told aides he was satisfied with the security enhancements immediately put into place, a White House official said. That changed Tuesday after the president learned of another breach earlier in September in Atlanta in which Obama rode an elevator with a security contractor that the Secret Service didn't know was armed. The Secret Service never informed Obama about that breach until Tuesday, when it was just about to emerge in the press. How fast things could change at the Secret Service was unclear. Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has been tasked with leading the internal Secret Service investigation, wants to quickly name a permanent director and finish an initial assessment of potential internal reforms, the White House official said. It would likely take weeks to fully vet potential directors. The official, who wasn't authorized to discuss the review on the record and requested anonymity, said the panel members yet to be named will be asked to decide whether the Secret Service would be best served by appointing an outsider to shake up the agency, an insider with deep experience or someone whose resume has a mixture of both. He said the advantages of bringing in someone from the outside had been a major topic of discussion among White House staffers and in the Secret Service in recent days. In Keil's view, there is little hope of changing the culture of the insular agency if an insider is tapped to be the next director. "After 150 years, now is probably the time for an outsider to come in and be the director," he said.Secret Service going forward in wake of resignation scandal By ALEX VEIGAAP Business WriterLOS ANGELES JPMorgan Chase & Co. says that a recent cyberattack compromised customer information for about 76 million households and 7 million small businesses. The New York-based bank said Thursday that customer information including names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were stolen in the cyberattack. However, JPMorgan says there's no evidence that the data breach included customers' account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth. The lender says it has not any unusual customer fraud related to this data breach. JPMorgan Chase, the nation's biggest bank by assets, has been working with law enforcement officials to investigate the cyberattack. Jamie Dimon, the bank's CEO, said in this year's annual report to shareholders that despite spending millions on cybersecurity, JPMorgan remained worried about the threat of attacks. By the end of this year, the bank estimates that it will be spending about $250 million annually on cybersecurity and employing 1,000 people in the area.JPMorgan says data breach affected 76M households By DAVID PORTERAssociated PressNEWARK, N.J. "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice (JOO'-dys) is headed to prison. She was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Newark to 15 months behind bars on conspiracy and bankruptcy charges. She cried as she apologized to the judge. Her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months in prison. Together they must pay $414,000 in restitution. The judge said Teresa will serve her sentence first so Joe can stay home with their four children. The couple walked into the courtroom holding hands. They pleaded guilty in March, admitting they hid assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitted phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans. Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to failing to file a 2004 tax return.Real Housewives of New Jersey couple get prison time for fraud What you learn in one hour could make a lifetime of difference.

Employers in the United States are hiring at a brisk pace. Unemployment has sunk to a nearly healthy rate. Jobs are being filled across a range of industries. Yet the September jobs report released Friday contained a puzzling fact: Paychecks still arent growing. Economists regard stagnant wages as a red flag for the 5-year-old recovery. Robust job growth has typically fueled rising wages. And without higher pay, workers have less money to spend and save and that, in turn, keeps the economy from strengthening further. Whatever meager pay raises most workers have received in this recovery have been all but eaten up by low inflation. The average hourly wage for non-management workers has remained $20.67 for two months. Its risen just 2.3 percent year-over-year, just slightly above inflation. It just might be the pivotal challenge for families as well as for the economy. The size of a paycheck shapes budgets for consumers, whose spending accounts for most of the U.S. economys activity. Weak pay gains, along with lower-than-normal inflation, will also influence when the Federal Reserve decides to start raising interest rates. Without more pay raises spreading across the economy, the Fed has less pressure to raise a key short-term rate from its record low near zero. So why hasnt vigorous hiring led to better paydays? Monthly wage gains last meaningfully outpaced inflation from mid-2006 through 2007, just before the Great Recession started. The unemployment rate then ranged between 4.4 percent and 4.8 percent. If that pattern holds true, unemployment would have to drop another full percentage point from its current 5.9 percent before wages break out of their funk. Some economists think we might be close to that point already but say we might not know until months after the fact.


LIFE Sunday, October 5, 2014 Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert By EMILY BUCHANAN | our women came to the local art gallery Wednesday during a “Girls’ Night Out” class to share an evening full of fun, laughter and good drink as they painted a beautiful watercolor painting. The Gateway Art Gallery, which moved to its new location at 168 N Marion Ave. in April, offers 13 classes each month rang ing from watercolors, acrylics, photogra phy, jewelry and paper marbling, according to Jeanne Van Arsdall, president of the Gateway Art Gallery. “Girls’ Night Out” is offered on the sec ond Tuesday of every month from 6 to 8 p.m., Van Arsdall said. The class holds no more than eight people, and all the art supplies are included in the $30 cost to sign up. The only thing left to bring is a favorite beverage to drink while painting. “Whether it’s wine or water, it’s up to you,” she said. At the beginning of the class, Van Arsdall stands at the front of the room an d begins with a lesson on the different pen and ink coloring techniques. Hensley begins painting her butterfly from bottom to top. Taylor carefully studies a photograph of the butterfly before she pa ints. The wonders of ‘GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT’ AT THE GALLERY As the women sat at tables covered with colorful paints and brushes, Van Arsdall stood at the front the classroom with a paint brush in hand and began a lesson on the different brush stroke techniques used for watercolor paintings. She held a picture of a monarch butterfly sitting on a patch of wildflow ers as a demonstration of what the class would be painting that evening. As the class began to paint their backgrounds, Van Arsdall walked around the room and offered guidance to help improve their pictures. “Don’t be afraid to use more water in your background, ladies,” she said. “Rinsing, think of rinsing your painting with your brush.” While she started painting the wings of her butterfly, Barbara Hagler, a retired staff accountant at Shields & Johnson CPA, said she had attended multiple classes and loved the variety of classes offered by the gallery.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I recently had an inter esting conversation with a friend after a funeral. It was about cremation versus buri al, and I’d be interested in your thoughts and those of your readers. We noted that cre mation has become more common, and guessed that one of the main reasons might be funeral and plot costs. After thinking about it, we thought there might be other consid erations propelling peo ple toward the practice of cremation. In modern soci ety, individuals and families seem less tied to one area, and also, larger commu nities make it more difficult to make trips to cemeteries. Any insight on this trend? — PLOTTING AND PLANNING IN ARIZONA DEAR PLOTTING AND PLANNING: Cremation is nothing new. It has been prac ticed since ancient times -5,000 years ago and possibly even longer than that. The early Romans did it, but with the rise of Christianity it fell out of favor. (It is accepted by the Christian reli gion today.) Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs com monly cremate their deceased. However, it is opposed by tradi tional Jewish culture, which believes our bod ies belong to God and we are not supposed to actively destroy God’s property, and by the Muslim religion. You and your friend have covered the major considerations that make people choose cremation instead of burial. I would only add that in the past, I have heard from readers who could not bear to part with the remains of their loved one, and who have kept the ashes in their home. Others would like to have their own ashes co-mingled with their loved one’s at the appropriate time and placed in a colum barium. However, if readers have anything they would like to add, I’ll share some of their input with you. DEAR ABBY: I’m 75 and my daughter just turned 50. We both have nice figures and are stylish. On a number of occasions over the years, when my daughter and I are together, people have commented that we look like sisters. I usually smile and say thanks, and my daugh ter just smiles. Recently, she asked me, “Does that mean I look old?” Turning 50 may have made her a little more age-con scious. She looks great for any age, and I would like your suggestion for a good reply that will boost her self-confidence. — GEORGIA IN TEXAS DEAR GEORGIA: Tell your daughter that people may say you look like sisters because you strongly resemble each other. Many mothers and daughters do. They may also be trying to pay YOU a compli ment, implying that you look much young er than your years. I’m sure it’s not meant to imply that your daugh ter looks old. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Fill up your day with all the errands you’ve been put ting off. Opportunities will arise, bringing about a positive change. Share your knowledge with an expert, and you will pick up valuable information. Love is highlighted. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Speak up and clear the air.

Look for simple but effective changes you can make to update your look or to make your skills and attributes more appealing. Socialize, and you will encounter someone who has something to offer. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Come to a decision before someone puts pressure on you. Don’t ignore the signs or com plaints being made. It’s best to be upfront and take care of business. Once you address con cerns, you will feel free to relax. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look at a challenge as a chance to show off. Give your all, and you will leave an unforgetta ble impression. Turn on your charm and flirt a little, and you will encourage a romantic encounter with someone special. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and ask questions. Research will be your ticket to advancement. Network and attend industry events that will allow you to display your skills and knowledge. A creative idea will be considered if presented to the right person. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expect to face opposition at home. Get out and do things that bring you joy to avoid a domestic situation that is likely to leave you facing uncertainty. Focus on exploring your options and discussing your concerns with a trusted friend. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Plan a unique way to improve your home and sur roundings. Implement changes that allow you the freedom to explore your creative skills, and you will feel more excited about turning something you enjoy into a prosperous venture. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Think about your next move. What you’ve done in the past, coupled with your current position, will make your next move easy if you just fol low through with your plans. Don’t give in to blackmail or emotional manipulation. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t feel you have to make a move if you aren’t ready yet. Back away from a situation that is causing you stress. Focus on what you have to offer and start putting your ideas and plans on paper.

Pam Graves, who works at Covenant Pet Trust and is a member of the Art League of North Florida, said she was new to the watercolor class and nervous to see how her butterfly would turn out. Im not an artist at all, she said as she added more water to the background of her painting. But this class is great. Its just a bunch of girls, painting and having a few refreshments while we work and nothing can get better than that. By the end of the class, the women said they were pleased to see the outcome of their butterfly paintings. And as the room grew silent with everyone concentrating on final touches, Van Arsdall gave some helpful advice. Eventually with practice, painting will become second nature, Van Arsdall said. Itll be like drinking water. And thats why we have classes here at the Gallery. We encourage everyone to pursue what they love doing and to know that itll all be worth it in the end.WATERCOLORContinued From 1D ABOVE: Van Arsdall helps Graves paint the background of her painting.

From staff reportsGAINESVILLE After six years of touring the country to more than 1 million visitors, the Florida Museum of Natural History welcomes home Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived opening this weekend. Produced by the Florida Museum, the exhibit tells the story of the largest shark that ever lived. It features a 60-footlong walk-through sculpture of Megalodon and describes the evolution, biology and legends of giant prehistoric sharks. Though this dominant marine predator vanished 2 million years ago, its fascinating story inspires lessons for science and shark conservation. The museum will host opening celebration activities Sunday, Oct. 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. We decided to bring Megalodon home for a visit partway through its very successful nationwide tour, said Darcie MacMahon, Florida Museum exhibits and public program director. This allows us to add new information about Megalodon research and showcase the popular exhibit again for our visitors. Megalodon displays both fossil and modern shark specimens as well as full-scale models from several collections. Visitors can enter a full-size metal sculpture of Megalodon through its massive jaws and stand inside to admire the sheer size of the ancient creature. Through hands-on, family-friendly interactive components, visitors may also discover the sharks history and the world it inhabited, including its diet, life span, relatives, neighbors and extinction, as well as how it has influenced human culture. A new component features recent Florida Museum shark research, including the discovery of the first Megalodon nursery and information on newly excavated fossils from Panama. Truly back by popular demand, Megalodon is one of the most frequently requested exhibits by our museum visitors, MacMahon said. The Florida Museum will display the exhibit through Jan. 4, 2015. While at the Florida Museum, Megalodon will be accompanied by Sharkabet: A Sea of Sharks From A to Z, a whimsical art exhibition showcasing paintings of different extinct and living shark species for each letter of the alphabet by artist Ray Troll. Megalodon was produced by the Florida Museum with support from the National Science Foundation. The exhibit begins a year-long celebration of giant fossils. In 2015, the Florida Museum will host A T. rex Named Sue, an exhibit about the most complete Tyrannosaurus rex specimen ever discovered. Sharkabet: A Sea of Sharks From A to Z was produced by The Patricia and Philip Frost Museum of Science. Artwork by Ray Troll. For more information, visit of fossils begins with Megaladon Sixty-foot shark sculpture exhibit opens this weekend at museum in Gainesville. LEARN MOREThe museum is located at 3215 Hull Road just east of Southwest 34th Street in the University of Florida Cultural Plaza in Gainesville. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. MondaySaturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.


Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 5D D id you know that the Fort White Branch Library has a spectacular garden? The Master Gardeners used it as a demonstra tion garden and the Fort White Branch Manager, Patti Street, is also a Master Gardener. When the new Fort White Branch opened several years ago, there was lots of space for a garden and the Master Gardeners have provided funds and volunteers to make it grow. If you have not already been to the Fort White Branch, please stop by to enjoy the facility, the back patio and the lovely garden. The Columbia County Public Library has many books on gardening and specifically on gardening in Florida. As Northern transplants (pun intend ed), my husband and I have found gardening to be very different here in Florida from what we were used to in the northern states. I do miss things we cannot grow here like the fragrant lilacs and the showy spring bulb gardens. I grew up in Rochester, New York and every spring is the Highland Park Lilac Festival. Imagine thousands of blooming lilacs and their wonderful fragrance waft ing through the air. My favorite tree to climb as a child was a huge white lilac tree in our yard. While we miss some plants, we have learned to embrace the ones we can grow in Florida. We still get a kick out of seeing tropical plants that were houseplants in the North that actually grow and thrive outdoors in Florida. The one plant my hus band cannot seem to mas ter here is the tomato. He tries every spring and his plants start to grow, but then they stop. His small green tomatoes never mature and he is left with tomato-less dreams again. I have been told the toma toes do not like it when temperatures are con stantly above 70 degrees. So, start growing them sooner in cooler weather sounds like the answer to me. If you are thinking of doing some fall and winter gardening, please stop by the Library to check out some books and magazines. You can also search for gardening materials on our online catalog on our website A small sample of books about when to plant what in Florida gardens include Winter Gardens (635.953ALL), Florida Gardening Month by Month (635.9SMI), The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener: How to Grow Your Own Food 365 Days a Year No Matter Where You Live (635JAB), and Month-by-Month Gardening in Florida (635.09759MAC). Several specific Florida garden ing books are Native Florida Plants: Low Maintenance Landscaping and Gardening (635.951759HAE), Container Gardens for Florida (635.9CRA), and Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida (635.9STI). These titles are but a tiny sam ple of gardening books available at the Library. Don’t forget to visit the Fort White Branch Library to enjoy the indoor and outdoor ambiance. Patti Street also started a Seed Library there in 2014 and you may be interested in learning all about that while you are there. At Fort White’s Library Garden Debbie Paulson386-758-1018 Q Debbie Paulson is the director of the Columbia County Public Library. R umor has it, if you go to college, you gain weight. The “Freshman 15” isn’t just a rumor, though – it’s actually grounded in some truth. According to Kids Health, the average college student gains between 3 to 10 pounds during their first two years at college. And there’s a reason for that. College is a transi tional time for many; stu dents find themselves in a new setting, sometimes in a new town entirely, where their focus is likely on studying and doing well in classes. Of course, this means there may be less time for physical activities than they had in high school. It’s tricky to fit exercise into a busy schedule, especially when your primary focus is on class es and studying. Or, at least it should be. And, of course, if you’re busy, you’re probably eating whatever you can get quickly. And, as we all know, fast food isn’t nec essarily healthy food. So, basic science tells us that weight gain occurs when you are eating more and exercising less. Combine that with the stress that school can cause, which typically causes students to eat more, and you have the “Freshman 15.” Florida Gateway College, over the years, has stressed the impor tance of physical activity. The college has a weight room, hosts various intramural activities, and often sponsors other physical activity events in the community, includ ing the March of Dimes March for Babies and the annual Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Walk. To continue this, on Monday, October 13, the college will open a brand new fitness center that will help students continue to combat the “Freshman 15.” While Florida Gateway College has had a weight room for many years, much of the equipment is older and outdated, unfortunately. For exam ple, when Broadway star Norm Lewis – a former student here – visited a couple of years ago, I gave him a tour of cam pus. When entering the weight room, his mouth dropped – it was almost the same as he remem bered it when he attended in the 1980s. And while the equip ment, to this day, is still functional, it’s definitely time for updated, modern equipment, something our new fitness center has an abundance of. There are new treadmills, new stationary bikes, new dumbbells, new machines; there’s even a TV to watch while you’re working out, and we’ll be streaming Pandora over the stereo. Our students are excit ed. Our staff is excited (because we’ll be using it, too). With the intro duction in recent years of our new library and our new student center, we believe the new FGC fitness center is another way we can continue to provide the best resourc es and experiences to our students. And, as always, if you’re interested in setting up a guided tour of the FGC campus – or our new fitness center – you can do that as well by calling (386) 754-4246. Stopping that ‘Freshmen 15’ Troy RobertsPublic Information CoordinatorFlorida Gateway College Q Troy Roberts is the public information coordinator at Florida Gateway College. He can be reached at troy.rob T ake me out to the ball game ... And he did. One of my first dates with Scott was an Atlanta Braves game back in 1993. We stayed at his aunt and uncle’s house in Snellville, just outside of Atlanta for the week end. I remember when we left their house heading to the game that I told Uncle Bernie that when I came back, I’d bring a homerun or foul ball back home with me. He just laughed and said, OK. I guess I didn’t know how rare that really was. It was my first Major League baseball game. I was so excited. The all-American atmosphere was special and I remem ber the smells coming from the concessions: hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts, you name it. Of course now a day they offer a lot more. I enjoyed the 7th inning stretch activities and of course sang the classic song. And since I am an FSU alumni, I actually had mixed feelings about the “tomahawk chop.” It just wasn’t the same; but I got it — another tribe but the same “war chant.” You can imagine my surprise when Jeff Blauser, the short stop at the time, hit the ball and it came right to me (or right at me depending on how you look at it). We were sitting not far from the first base dugout. Of course, I was afraid to catch it with my bare hand and somehow it landed at my feet under the seats. I can’t exactly remember what happened next as it was all a blur and I found myself root ing around on the ground under my chair. But I came back up with that ball! It was totally awe some. Since then I have been to many other Major League baseball games at different fields. I love the history in some, like Wrigley Field. I’ve been to two games here and it’s quite nostalgic. Earlier this summer, during the 100th anniversary year of Wrigley Field, I attended a history-making game when it was rained out and resumed two days later with a Cubs win. Another favorite was “old” Yankee stadium. I’ve also been to the “new” Yankee stadium and like that there is a Hard Rock Caf there, but prefer the old one. Next on my list is AT&T Park in San Francisco. It was Pacific Bell Park when I went. That’s something that takes away the nostalgia for me — the corporate naming of the fields. I think that’s why I like Wrigley and Yankee Stadium. But here, it was fun to watch the kayakers and boaters dive for the balls that went over the outfield wall into the bay. The one historic field that has escaped me so far is Fenway Park, the oldest Major League base ball stadium in use. I’ve been to Boston twice and haven’t made it to a game yet, but I’m confident I will make it happen and see the “green monster.” By the way, I still have that ball from the 1993 Atlanta Braves game. It sits in a case, proudly dis played in my home office. Taking me out to the ballgame TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton Q Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.
