However, she was told shed have to resign from the House to get the post. PorterBy ROBERT BRIDGESrbridges@lakecityreporter.comState Rep. Elizabeth Porter, one of four finalists for Tourist Development director, said Friday she was told last summer she would have to abandon her bid for re-election to the House of Representatives in order to be offered the county post. There was concern she couldnt be a full-time TDC director while still holding down a seat in the House, she said. However, her position as a PORTER continued on 6A Stand back in play in George caseBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Lavell Nicole George murder trial slated to begin tomorrow has been postponed until December if it happens at all. An evidentiary hearing set for later this week will determine whether George qualifies for immunity from prosecution under the Stand Your Ground defense. George is facing second-degree murder charges in the 2012 shooting death of her boyfriend, Maurice Mickler. In December 2013 George had her attorney, Richard R. Kuritz, seek immunity from prosecution under the Stand Your Ground statute. However, weeks later that defense was withdrawn. In August another member of the defense team, attorney William Kent, filed a motion to invoke Stand Your Ground, indicating the previous motion listed the wrong statute due to a clerical error. Assistant state attorney John Durrett is prosecuting the case but Friday he declined comment on the hearing scheduled to begin Thursday. During the hearing, the judge will listen to witness testimony from both the defense and prosecution. Hearing Thursday will determine if she stands trial. George GEORGE continued on 6AINSIDESee list of other trials on Monday. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comPeople dressed as goblins and ghosts, and others seeking quality family fun showed up at Columbia High School Friday and Saturday as the school hosted its inaugural fall festival. The festival, complete with a corn (actually sorghum) maze, allowed event attendees to spend daytime hours with childrens events, then as the ghostly hours approached, CHS students put on Halloween costumes to put a little scare into older attendees. Several CHS clubs also had booths, games and other activities at the event for fundraising purposes. CHS student Victoria Reed was volunteering her time with the Columbia High School Criminal Justice club, which hosted a Smash-A-Car fundraiser. She and her friend Taylor Joseph hoped to help sell tickets for the activity. I think its cool theyre doing a fall festival, Joseph said. Patricia Starnes, CHS FFA advisor, said the inaugural fall festival drew about 150 250 people Friday night with 212 enjoying the hayrides. She was hoping for at least the same sized crowd Saturday evening.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAUDERHILL A uthorities say an 8-year-old boy lost three fingers while playing with illegal fireworks. The Lauderhill boy’s family tells WTVJ-TV that they heard an explosion Friday night and ran outside. Britnee Britt says she saw her younger brother running down the street crying. Britt says her brother was holding his hand, shaking and bleeding. Lauderhill Fire Rescue Capt. Larry Gonzalez says the fire works were the same used at sporting events and “highly illegal and unfortunate.” It wasn’t immediately clear how the boy got ahold of the fireworks. The boy was hospitalized. Police are investigating.Man falls to his death from condo ST. PETE BEACH — Florida authorities say alcohol may be a factor in the death of an Ohio man who fell while trying to climb to the roof of a beachfront condominium. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says Cody Conley of Centerville, Ohio, died early Saturday after trying to climb from the sixth floor landing of a St. Pete Beach condominium to the roof. Deputies say Conley had stripped down to his boxer shorts before attempting the climb. Conley’s 17-year-old brother also climbed over the landing’s railing to try to stop his broth er from falling. Deputies say Conley fell to the pavement below and died at a hospital. The sheriff’s office says Conley’s death appears to be acci dental. An autopsy is pending. Conley and his family were visiting Florida for a family wed ding.Lee County deputy cited for fatal crash CAPE CORAL — Authorities say a Lee County deputy was at fault in a crash that killed a southwest Florida teenager. The Cape Coral Police Department reported Friday that Deputy Douglas E. Hood was cited for careless driving follow ing a two-month investigation. Police say 15-year-old Austin Dukette was riding his bike to school in August when Hood hit the boy with his vehicle. The investigation found the comput er in the car was a factor in the crash, in addition to environ mental factors and the clothing Dukette was wearing.

Rick Scott is petitioning U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan for a hearing on Florida’s denied request for flex ibility on testing students still learning English. Florida was granted an exten sion from No Child Left Behind in August, but federal officials declined the state’s request regarding English language learner accountability. The state asked that it be allowed to withhold Florida schools and teachers from accountability for English lan guage learner achievement on state tests until after two years of instruction. Education leaders including Miami-Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho are backing the state’s request. In his letter to Duncan, Scott said he wants an administrative law judge hearing on the matter. Florida has more than 265,000 students who are learning English as a second or even third language.Man charged with stealing plumbing ST. PETERSBURG — Police say they’ve flushed out a man accused of stealing the handles and pipes of toilets in parks and restaurant restrooms around a Florida city. St. Petersburg police said Friday that they arrested a 28-year-old homeless man. He is accused of stealing the plumbing from Cracker Barrel, Burger King, Bob Evans and other restaurants. Police released a photo of a pile of metal toilet parts that they say Brian Rinda stole. Police say Rinda caused about $1,000 in damage and traded the brass valve and piping at a coun ty recycling center. Rinda was charged with eight counts of grand theft and 1 count of petit theft.

Medical examiner: Body that of missing actress SEATTLE — The King County medi cal examiner has confirmed that a body found in a ravine in the Seattle suburb of Auburn is that of missing actress Misty Upham, known for her roles in “August: Osage County,” ‘’Frozen River” and “Django Unchained.” In a statement, the medical examiner’s office said Friday that the 32-year-old woman died Oct. 5. That’s the day her family told police that the Native American actress was suicidal. Relatives reported her missing the next day. The medical examiner said the cause and manner of death are pending investigation. Auburn police spokesman Steve Stocker said the body was found Thursday near the White River. Items with Upham’s name on them were found nearby. He said there was no evi dence of foul play. A family friend found the body while a group of friends and family were searching in the area.Bono wears sunglasses due to his glaucoma LONDON — U2 singer Bono says his ever-present sunglasses aren’t a rock-star affectation — he has suffered from glaucoma for 20 years. The condition — a buildup of pres sure that can damage the optic nerve — can make the eyes sensitive to light. Bono told the BBC’s “Graham Norton Show” that he had the condi tion, but “I have good treatments and I am going to be fine.” He said people would now think of him as “poor old blind Bono.” He also acknowledged that some people had been annoyed when U2’s new album, “Songs of Innocence,” was sent unsolicited to millions of people with iTunes accounts. In comments released Friday by the BBC, Bono said, “We wanted to do something fresh, but it seems some peo ple don’t believe in Father Christmas.” Maggie Smith honored by Queen Elizabeth II LONDON — British royalty has met acting aristocracy, as Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II bestowed an honor on Maggie Smith during a ceremony at Windsor Castle. Smith, who plays the imperious Dowager Countess of Grantham on “Downton Abbey,” was made a mem ber of the Order of the Companions of Honor on Friday in recognition of her six decades in television. The award is limited to 65 living people “of distinction.” Other members include physicist Stephen Hawking, actor Ian McKellen and artist David Hockney. The 79-year-old actress has won two Academy Awards, for “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” and “California Suite.” She is currently filming “The Lady in the Van,” reprising her stage role as a homeless eccentric who parked for years on the driveway of playwright Alan Bennett.S. Korea concert planner found dead after 16 die SEOUL, South Korea — A South Korean man involved in planning an out door pop concert where 16 people were killed after falling through a ventilation grate was found dead Saturday in an apparent suicide, officials said, as doctors treated eight others facing life-threaten ing injuries from the disaster. The man, 37, an employee of the Gyeonggi Institute of Science and Technology Promotion, was found dead at around 7 a.m. in Seongnam, the city south of Seoul where Friday’s accident occurred, said city spokesman Kim Nam-jun. The site of his death was not far from where 16 people watching a perfor mance by 4Minute, a girls band that is popular across Asia, were killed when the ventilation grate they were standing on collapsed.

Sgt. Tracy Hisler-Pace, FHP public affairs officer for Troop B, said although this is a statewide event, the FHP station in Lake City plans to raise enough food beginning Oct. 20 through Nov. 5 to stuff a FHP Dodge Charger full of food for donations that will go to the Christian Service Center of Columbia County, Inc. “Our goal is to stuff one or more Dodge Chargers that are one of our patrol cars that we use,” she said. “It would be fantastic if we could pull up at the Christian Service Center with several vehi cles full of food.” The goal is to help local fam ilies that are in need during the holiday, Hisler-Pace said. “FHP is a very family-oriented organi zation,” she sad. “Many of the troopers in our local troop have considered Lake City home for many years, and we want to do something for our community.” She is hopeful this community food drive will help put food on some empty tables during the hol iday season, she said. “If there’s an open space in the Charger, we want to fill,” she said. “I know I’m excited about this because you just want to help your community, that’s why most of us came into law enforcement to begin with.” Charlie Suydam, interim direc tor at the Christian Service Center of Columbia County, Inc., said the center has seen an estimated 980 families come through within the past year. With an average of 196 boxes of food given out month ly, Suydam said within the last month that number has risen to 240 due to more people seeking food to feed their family during the holiday. “The food drive is great for the center and meeting the needs for the community,” he said. “ It’s definitely seen as a blessing for the community especially this time of the year.”‘Stuff the Charger’ begins tomorrow Inaugural FHP fundraiser hopes to provide holiday meals for Christian Service Center.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com O ne of the more unsettling things we’ve seen as the Ebola story unwinds is the seeming level of confusion and uncertainty among national health officials on so many fronts. There were at least two “breaches of protocol” in Texas, resulting in at least two infections, but officials don’t know what the breaches were or how they occurred. Meanwhile, public briefings by the Centers for Disease Control contain all manner of confusing, even misleading, information, such as early claims that the isolation ward of any U.S. hospital would be adequate to contain the spread of Ebola. We like to think things are different here in Columbia County. We don’t have the same resources you’d find in a large metropolis such as Atlanta. But we do have faith in local officials to be smart in the face of a crisis. And we do have confidence they will be candid with us concerning just where we stand in Lake City as this national story unfolds. We would remind them, as preparations and safeguards are put in place — just in case — that any lack of transparency can diminish that level of confidence. We would also stress that we are counting on them to maintain that level of trust.Transparency in the war on Ebola Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITOR TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1765, the Stamp Act Congress, meeting in New York, drew up a declaration of rights and liberties. In 1781, British troops under Gen. Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown, Va., as the American Revolution neared its end. In 1864, Confederate Gen. Jubal A. Early attacked Union forces at Cedar Creek, Va.; the Union troops were able to rally and defeat the Confederates. In 1936, H.R. Ekins of the New York World-Telegram beat out Dorothy Kilgallen of the New York Journal and Leo Kieran of The New York Times in a round-the-world race on commercial flights that lasted 18 1/2 days. In 1951, President Harry S. Truman signed an act formally ending the state of war with Germany. In 1960, the United States began a limited embargo against Cuba covering all commodities except medical supplies and certain food products. Birthday a reminder of lessons that last a lifetime M y daughter has a birthday coming soon. As birthdays go, it’s a pretty big one. At least, it was for me when I was her age a lifetime ago. We will celebrate the day with joy and thanksgiving and a little party and a lot of cake, as if it were the only birthday in the history of the world. Lucky for me, I won’t have to do much. She’s been planning her own birthday parties since she was 3. Basically, all I’ve ever had to do was light the candles and clean up the mess. Now she has a 3-year-old who plans his own parties, too. And so it goes, this thing we call “life,” a beautiful circle that spins like a carousel from beginning to end, then begins again, round and round. My daughter grows more beautiful with every passing year. Inside and out. She doesn’t seem to notice, but I do. I wish you could see her.Like her brothers and all children, really, she took the best from her parents (a lot from her dad, a little from me) and made something better, something entirely her own. When I think of things I wish I had known at her age, I have to tell you: She already knows them. How does that happen? How do our children get to be so much smarter than we were? Anyhow. Here are a few things I wish I had known at her age, and am still trying to learn: 1. Not everything is about you. Sometimes it’s about others. Let them have their turn. 2. Know that you are whole. You have everything you need. Look around and see who needs you. 3. Say yes to everything that will make life better and no to anything that makes it worse. 4. Clean as you go. Keep short accounts. Pay your debts on time. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger or your dishes. 5. You can get grease spots out of most anything with baby powder (sprinkle it on, rub it in, brush it off with a damp cloth, repeat until the spot is gone) but nothing erases an unkind word. 6. If you have to swallow a frog, don’t look at it too long before you put it in your mouth; if you have to swallow two frogs, go for the big one first; and if you have to swallow three frogs, you might want to ask yourself what you’re doing in the pond. 7. Be your own best friend, not your worst enemy. Love your body. Take care of it. Change it if you must any way you see fit. But remember, it’s the only one you’ll get, so try to make it last. 8. Surround yourself with beauty. Flowers on the table. Birds at the window. Wind in your hair. Sand beneath your feet. A dog by your side. A song in your heart. Food that makes you stronger. Words that feed your soul. Music that makes you want to dance. People who lift you up and make you laugh and leave you better. 9. Do the right thing for yourself and for others and the world. The wrong thing may be easier or even more fun, but in the long run, it’s hard to live with. 10. Smile at everyone — old people, children and strangers. It might not do much for them, but it will make you feel better. 11. Be thankful. Think about it. It’s not hard to do. Start and end each day by consciously noting five things for which you are truly and deeply grateful. 12. Make and keep at least one good, longtime friend who reads you like a book, likes you anyway, and will always have your back and your trust. 13. Be the kind of person that you want to be and give others the free-dom to do the same. 14. When you look in the mirror, see someone who isn’t perfect, but is surely loved, a sinner saved by grace. 15. Finally, celebrate every birthday — especially your own — as if it were the one and only birthday in the history of the world. Because it is. Happy birthday, sweet girl. So glad you were born. Amendments just raise taxes To the Editor:I have not read the constitutional amendment referenced in the Oct. 14, Page 6A article. I want to know why we have to require real estate taxes for 20 years to be tied to water and land conservation. What is the Suwannee River Water Management District for? What do they do with their money gained from our real estate taxes already acquired? I find most constitutional amendments could have been accomplished by law, which can be repealed or limited, rather than written in stone by a constitutional amendment. I find that constitutional amendments never turn out to be what you think they mean and they always raise my taxes.

An Ebola crisis of confidence E ven as U.S. health authorities continue to tell Americans not to worry about the Ebola virus, their assurances are being undercut by the increasingly obvious deficien-cies in domestic planning. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has repeatedly been forced to back away from his calming assertions that U.S. hospitals were ready for the disease and that the nation’s quaran-tines were more effective than those in Africa and would keep any infected people at home. Frieden has now had to acknowledge that protocol breaches probably led to two Dallas hospital nurses becoming infected with Ebola. And a national nurses union is contending that from the start, the hospital per-sonnel who cared for Liberian traveler Thomas Eric Duncan were outfitted with inadequate protective gear and told to patch up any gaps with tape. The United States does not remotely have an Ebola crisis, but it is beginning to have a crisis of confidence in the Obama adminis-tration’s handling of the matter. President Obama made the right move early on when he offered $1 billion worth of aid to West Africa. Substantial aid is not only a neces-sary humanitarian response, but the smartest way to prevent a global health problem. Now the administration also must toughen up its response at home. That means required training for hos-pital staffs in recognizing and react-ing to the disease, rules that ensure infected patients will be treated only in facilities equipped to handle the complicated protocols and mandatory quarantines of exposed people.

However, the burden of proof is on the defense to show the killing of Mickler was a justified use of dead ly force. George has had four attorneys, Lewis Buzzell III, Teresa Sopp, Kuritz and Kent, who have filed motions in the pretrial con ferences. George is charged with second-degree murder, tampering with evidence and acting as an accessory to a felony in connection with Mickler’s death. On June 30, 2012, George allegedly shot her former boyfriend, Mickler, in her home and cleaned the crime scene, report edly attempting to place Mickler’s body in what police called a “Christmas tree bag” before calling authorities to report she had shot and killed him. Mickler, 27 at the time of his death, was a convicted felon and wanted by author ities on drug charges. George, who is free on bond awaiting trial, claimed that Mickler was abusive to her. During a pretrial motion conference Thursday morning, both the pros ecution and the defense requested that the eviden tiary hearing on the Stand Your Ground take place Thursday and Friday. The motion was granted by Third Circuit Judge Wesley R. Douglas. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Florida Gateway College presentsPerspective Sponsored by: Upcoming Schedule: October 20-24 Horticulture Program at FGC with John PIersol October 27-31 Columbia County Fair with Steve Briscoe and Wanda Jones 7 p.m. Monday-Friday Only on Comcast Channel 8 state lawmaker — and as vice-chair of the House Subcommittee on Economic Development and Tourism — would make her all the more qualified to lead the tour ism department here at home, in her view. Rather than cut into her work as TDC chief, her time in Tallahassee would open the door to local opportunity. “I see it as a benefit to both positions because I’d be more informed as a member of the com mittee and I would be able to use that knowledge and my network to benefit Columbia County,” she said. “It just seems like it’s an anomaly to think that it wouldn’t be beneficial to the area.” Nonetheless, Porter, a Lake City Republican, agreed in principle to resign her House seat, provided the offer of TDC chief was made in plenty of time to replace her on the November ballot. A county offi cial told her she was the number two choice behind Gary Pearce of Volusia County, a fact reflect ed in the minutes of the Sept. 17 TDC meeting. If the county did not accede to Pearce’s salary demands — he wanted $15,000 above the advertised figure of $65,000, with assurances he would soon be in six-figure territory — she “would hear from them,” she said she was told. The county didn’t budge on Pearce’s salary, but instead of offering the job to Porter, skipped over her to the next candidate on the list, Paula Vann. Vann was offered the job Friday and has until Monday to make up her mind.No regretsPorter says she isn’t angry that she wasn’t offered the job and is happy to retain her seat in the House. “I think their choice for TDC director, Paula, will do just a fine job,” she said. “I spoke to her (Thursday) and offered her con gratulations on the vote and told her that we would be just happy as can be to assist her with any projects she wanted to work on, on behalf of the county.” But Porter does reject the premise that she couldn’t do both jobs, and do them well. Beyond any potential synergy between the two positions, Porter says it’s hardly uncommon for state lawmakers to have full-time jobs in the private sector. “Unless the legislator is retired, then they all have full-time jobs,” she said. “Whether it’s attorneys or chamber directors or physi cians, they have full-time jobs and practices.” Still, such an arrangement would be in violation of coun ty policy, according to County Manager Dale Williams, who made the final selection for the job. “There really is no provision to allow her to take a leave of absence during the (legislative) session,” Williams said Friday. “She definitely felt — and I understand why — that it would’ve been an asset to leave her in that position,” he said. “But at the end of the day, under current policy, she would have been asked to resign (her House seat).” Williams said he saw “no sup port” among county commission ers for amending county policy to allow Porter to attend the 60-day legislative session each spring if employed as TDC chief.Political questionsWilliams said there were other concerns with offering the job to Porter as well. He received calls from concerned Porter constitu ents about who would replace her in the House, he said. Once qualifying for the Nov. 4 general election ended on June 20, the Republican Executive Committee for each county in District 10 would have had to caucus to find a replacement can didate for Porter had she dropped out of the race. Williams said he and some commissioners got calls from constituents worried the choice for state representative was being taken out of voters’ hands. Porter said that’s why she emphasized to county officials the need to act quickly in decid ing on a successor to former TDC director Harvey Campbell, who announced his retirement in February. All she asked was “plenty of time to notify the House leader ship and the party so that they could find a good, quality replace ment for me for the election,” she said. However, repeated delays in the search made that virtually impossible. Eventually, the timeline for finding and installing a new Republican candidate became impractical at best. The last day for the RECs to install a replacement candidate would be Wednesday, Oct. 22, she said. After that, a special election would have to be called to fill the seat. “As the date kept getting clos er and closer to the election, I reminded them that I had to know by a particular time what their decision was going to be,” Porter said. “I never did hear any kind of a decision and they kept pushing the date back and so I let it be known that I was not going to take the position if it meant that it would throw this district into a special election. Number one, it’s just the wrong thing to do. It’s wrong for the district, it’s wrong for the constituents. I wouldn’t do it and it could very well cause this district to be with out representation throughout the session. So I let it be known that I was not going to do that around three to four weeks ago ... My comment was that if they were going to offer it to me, that it was too late to offer it with the condition that I not run again for the House seat.” Williams agreed the search could have gone faster, but said filling the vacant economic devel opment director and assistant county manager posts were top priorities at the time. Still, “had the county acted more quickly, you wouldn’t have ended up with that problem,” he said. Porter said it’s for the best anyway. “There’s a reason that every thing happens, and maybe the good Lord has other plans for me,” she said. “I’m not going to let it change what I do. I’m going to continue to represent District 10 to the best of my ability. In fact, we’ve never slowed down.”Possible conflictsWilliams said there were issues with Porter taking the TDC post even had she quit her seat in the House. Before applying for TDC direc tor, Porter put in for the econom ic development director post later filled by Glenn Hunter. In response to concerns over a possible conflict of interest, Porter sought a legal opinion from Daniel E. Nordby, general counsel to the state House of Representatives. In a March 28 memo, Nordby wrote that no conflict existed, with one possible exception. Had she resigned from the House, a statutory provision bar ring former legislators from lob bying either the legislative or executive branch for two years would have been triggered, Nordby said. “This prohibition would have been personal to you — it would not affect the ability of other employees or contract lobby ists of the county to lobby the Legislature or executive branch agencies, not would it prohibit you from working with any lobbyist retained to represent the county’s interests...,” he wrote Porter. Columbia County conflict attorney Joel Foreman, asked by Williams to review Nordby’s response, said in an April 3 memo that he spoke with former county Economic Development Director Jesse Quillen, who told him a large part of his job was frequent face-to-face meetings with state officials. Foremen wrote that if Porter were hired, the county would have to hire additional staff members to act as interme diaries on her behalf. Williams wondered Friday if any of the same restrictions Foreman cited in his memo on Porter’s possible role as econ chief applied to her becoming TDC director. At least one county commissioner, speaking off the record, said he believed the same legal reasoning applied to the TDC post as to economic devel opment director. However, Foreman said Friday he was never asked about Porter’s possible role as TDC director, only as econ chief. Porter applied for the TDC post June 2. “I was never approached about that,” Foreman said. Porter said she didn’t see the possible connection between the two jobs. “I’ve never seen any lobbying from a tourism director from Columbia County or any county,” she said. Still, Williams called the issue “a huge distraction” that could have hampered Porter’s abili ty to do her job had she been selected. “Is it fair to her? Probably not,” Williams said. “Is it reality? Most definitely.” Staff writer Emily Buchanan contributed to this report. PORTERContinued From 1AFrom staff reports The Lavell George murder trial has been delayed, but that doesn’t mean those called for jury duty Monday can stay home. Seven other trials are scheduled to take place in the county courthouse this week. Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the fol lowing cases: Kenneth Ronald Hendon, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, trespass; Rohan Anthony Gray, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, sexual battery by a person in familial or custodial authority, lewd or lascivious molestation of a child; Oleksandr Detistov, trafficking of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, pos session of 20 grams or less of cannabis; Willie E. Watts, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer/great bodily harm (two counts); Ezrah Morrison, trafficking in a controlled sub stance, obtaining commercial transportation with the intent to commit a felony. GEORGEContinued From 1A 7 other trials Monday available. Gary Pearce, who was offered the job in September, turned it down because he wanted a salary higher than $65,000. County staff and TDC board members picked the top four candidates for the job from an applicant pool of roughly 30. Williams alone has final say in filling the position, but he took the TDC’s and coun ty commission’s opinions into consideration before offering Vann the job. Both the TDC and BOCC voted to recommend her for the position. Vann, who currently works as a recruitment specialist at Partnership for Strong Families in Gainesville, was picked over two other final ists, Elizabeth Porter of Lake City and Arthur McIntyre of Lehigh Acres. VANNContinued From 1A to have a corn maze for the high school FFA,” she said. “I talked to the right people this year and they helped us out tremen dously by providing and planting the sorghum and allowing us to do this.” Phyllis Hanechak brought two children to the inaugural fall festival. “I wanted to bring them out because it’s something new the school’s doing and they wanted to come to the corn maze,” she said, not ing the children planned to get their faces painted, tour the corn maze and get a hay ride. “It’s good to have the fall festival, it’s something that the kids can do and enjoy.” Starnes said the fall fes tival concept grew from her original thoughts of a corn maze, and they have plans to have an expanded version next year. She said at least seven CHS clubs participated in this year’s inaugural event. The event will continue next Friday and Saturday.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 7A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com People dressed in peri od costume and Native American regalia were a common site at O’Leno State Park this weekend where the annual Alligator Warrior Fest is taking place. An event to celebrate the days of Lake City when it was known as Alligator, the Alligator Warrior Fest, was moved to O’Leno years ago when a Seminole War skirmish re-enactment was added to the event. Another skirmish re-enactment will take place at 2 p.m. today. Doug Vasco, Chief of the Rose Creek Band of Muscogee (Creek) descen dants of Lake City, has been a participant in the event for several years and noted the event has been held for more than 13 years at different locations in Columbia County. He said the event was founded by local residents and the late Dolly Barraca and served as a founder’s day celebration. “She said, ‘who else would be better founders than the original natives that were here’,” Vasco said. “Alligator was a growing, thriv ing community. Alligator Warrior Fest is to remind people of our rich heritage that Columbia County had before they split the county.” He said the festival highlights the fact that the natives were here and the event features settlers, soldier camps and mili tia camps and there were more than 200 participants at this year’s event, includ ing vendors. “The festival just shows people what it was like here,” he said. “The festival celebrates that time and we celebrate in a way we rec ognize there was Indians and militia here who actu ally fought in San Felasco Hammock.” “This is part of our tra dition, so we try to keep it alive,” said Vic Vasco, Doug’s father, who was an original event organizer. “We were here first. We’re actually American natives so we were here before the Europeans ever thought about coming here.” Julia Martnishn and her eight-year-old daughter, Veronica Putnel, stopped at several of the exhibitor tables as they made their way around the park. “I having good time at the festival,” she said, not ing her husband was smok ing meat at the event. “It’s my first time here and it’s definitely very interesting.” Putnel said she was enjoying herself at the event. “I’m having fun because we’re walking around hav ing fun looking at stuff,” she said. Tom Sanders, of Newberry, was also a first time visitor, who said he was enjoying himself. “It’s a new and interest ing experience,” he said. Sanders, who is a re-en actor, said he was invited to participate with the militia group at the event. “I’m really enjoying it,” he said. “It’s a nice pace from the Civil War (re-en actments). At Civil War events they don’t have the handy crafts like they have here and it’s a lot more relaxed here. I plan on coming back next year.” Photos by TONY BRITT/ Lake City ReporterDaniel Arrington (from left), a flute maker, plays a Native American style flute for Tom Sanders as Will and Doris Corbitt listen during S aturday’s Alligator Warrior Fest in O’Leno State Park.ALLIGATOR WARRIOR FEST 2014Celebrating those who came before us Melinda Moses, Lake City council member, presents Doug Vasco, a Muscogee descendant chief, with a proclamation declaring that for the week of Oct. 19 Lake City be called Alligator.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comTALLAHASSEE — It was the second time that Florida State and Notre Dame met with both teams ranked in the top 5. On Nov. 13, 1993, it was billed as the “Game of the Century.” In a new century, the two teams did their best to live up to that billing and the Seminoles did just that in a 31-27 win over the Irish. Jameis Winston missed only one pass in the second half to rally Florida State from a 17-10 halftime deficit for the win. The first half saw the Irish out play Florida State from the line of scrimmage, and last year’s Heisman winner outplayed by Everett Golson. Golson made big plays with both his arm and legs to help the Irish out to a 17-10 halftime lead while Notre Dame controlled every aspect of the game. Most importantly, the Irish were able to keep Winston and the Florida State offense from finding rhythm as they remained on the sideline for all but 10:39 of the first half. Golson, on the other hand, com pleted 15-of-26 passes for 139 yards and two scores in the first half. He also rushed for 35 yards. But it was his arm connecting with Corey Robinson that made the most impact. Robinson capped a 12-play, 84-yard drive with a touchdown reception from Golson with 2:10 remaining in the first quarter for the game’s initial score. It was the longest scoring drive the Seminoles have given up this season. Florida State matched with a four-play, 65-yard drive where Winston hit Travis Rudolph for an 11-yard score. It was the 20th con secutive game with a touchdown pass for Winston, every game of his career. Golson hit Robinson for a sec Lake City Reporter SPORTS Lake City Reporter Sunday, October 19, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactBrandon FinleySports Reporter754-0420bfinley@lakecityreporter.com GAMES Monday Q Columbia High volleyball vs. Oakleaf High in District 3-6A tournament in Middleburg, 7 p.m.Q Columbia High girls soccer vs. Orange Park in preseason game at Patton Park in Jacksonville, 7:20 p.m. Wednesday Q Columbia High girls soccer vs. Nease in preseason game at Patton Park in Jacksonville, 7:20 p.m. Thursday Q Columbia High football at Robert E.

In the end, it was the Cowboys that came away with a 25-14 win. Madison County took possession of the ball on the opening kickoff after the Indians deferred their option to the second half. After quarterback Akevious Williams was sacked on the opening play of the drive, Williams reeled off a 23-yard run to the Fort White 45 yard line. Williams then threw a 45-yard pass to Javon Redding and with only one 1:04 elapsed in the first quarter the Cowboys had gone up 6-0 after the point after was blocked. The Cowboy defense held the Indians to a three-and-out on Fort White’s first offensive series and forced a punt. It did not take long for Williams to hook up with Deandre Burton on a 35-yard pass play for a touch down. The Indians trailed 12-0 with 8:33 to play in the first quarter after a failed two-point conversion. Madison County’s offense was kept off the field for the majority of the second quarter as the Indians only allowed one first down (via a personal foul penalty). The Indians also scored their first touchdown of the night in the second quar ter.

By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com GAINESVILLE — It was a struggle in The Swamp Saturday night as the Florida Gators took on the Missouri Tigers for homecoming. Florida not only walked away with a devastating loss at home, but also suf fered consecutive home coming losses for the first time since 1946-47. Last homecoming, the Gators took on Vanderbilt and lost 34-17. This year, Florida allowed the Tigers every return in the book, losing 42-13. “When you turn it over six times, you can’t win a football game,” Gators Head Coach Will Muschamp said in an post-game press conference. “It wasn’t from a lack of GATORS continued on 2B PAUL BUCHANAN/ Special to the ReporterFlorida State University running back Karlos Williams carrie s the ball against Notre Dame Saturday.

effort, it wasn’t from a lack of trying, it was a lack of ball security.” It’s hard to say the game’s opening play didn’t foreshadow the trend of the game. Gators kicker Austin Hardin offered a 61-yard kickoff to the Tigers, which Marcus Murphy returned 96 yards for a touchdown just 11 seconds into the contest, giving the Tigers a 7-0 lead. After a handful of sacks and fumbles by Jeff Driskel, who started at quarterback for Florida, and echoes of boos coming from fans, Muschamp responded by putting Treon Harris in at quarterback at 7:39 of the first quarter. Just like Driskel, Harris was met with overwhelm ing force by Missouri, suf fering a fumble that was recovered by Missouri linebacker Michael Scherer and led to yet another Tiger touchdown by Murphy. After another PAT by Andrew Baggett, the Tigers led 14-0. The Gators gave up another six points in the second quarter by allowing two field goals by Baggett. At the beginning of the third quarter, Murphy had an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown with a two point conversion by Bud Sasser to make it 28-0. It wasn’t until after two more touchdowns and two more extra point kicks by the Tigers that The Swamp finally filled with fireworks and cheers, signaling a Gators touchdown by Tevin Westbrook from a pass by Harris. The Gators scored again in the fourth quarter to make the final score to 42-13. In response to Florida giving up 14 points to the Missouri special teams, Muschamp said he knows that this falls on his shoul ders and his alone. Muschamp said the team will meet Sunday at 3 p.m. to discuss this week’s game and how to prepare for the future. We need to restore not just Jeff, but our entire offense, he said. When told that alumni fans were chanting “Fire Muschamp” after the half, he said he isn’t worried about that. “I’m really worried about this team right now,” he said. “I’m not going to get worried about something I have no control over. I’m going to focus on what I do have control over, and that is this team.” SCOREBOARD TELEVISIONTV sports TODAY AUTO RACING 2 p.m. ESPN — NASCAR, Sprint Cup, Geico 500, at Talladega, Ala.

The remainder of the first half saw sustained drives from both teams end in field goals to leave the Irish up 17-10 at the half. Florida State’s Roberto Aguayo hit a 28-yard field goal to finish off a 10-play, 39-yard drive that ate 3:41 of the clock and Notre Dame answered with a drive extending 14 plays in 4:01 for 67 yards and a 34-yard field goal from Kyle Brindza with 39 seconds remaining in the first half. In the third quarter, both teams found offen sive rhythm as 21 com bined points were scored to send the game into the final quarter tied at 24-24. Golson was 7-of-9 in the quarter, while Winston went 10-of-10 for 117 yards and a touchdown pass. Florida State set the tone of the second half with a game-tying drive to start the third quarter. Winston was the catalyst as he connected on all seven of his passes includ ing a 10-yard touchdown to Rashad Greene. Golson answered with an 83-yard drive in which he completed all five of his passes and ended the series with an 11-yard con nection to Will Fuller for the 24-17 lead. But it was Winston’s quarter to shine, and he showed why he is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. He marched the Seminoles back 75 yards for the score on a drive that included two passes of more than 29 yards from Winston. Karlos Williams then punched it in the end zone from two-yards out with just over three min utes remaining in the third quarter. Notre Dame regained the lead on a 46-yard field goal from Kyle Brindza to finish off a 10-play drive that began the fourth quarter. The Irish led 27-24 with 11:40 remaining in the fourth quarter. Winston continued his sensational half and gave the Seminoles their first lead at 7:39 remaining in the game after Williams punched in the score for a 31-27 lead. Winston was 5-of-6 on the drive, which included a pass falling back across his body to Greene for 15 yards to set up the Seminoles’ score. Brindza pinned a 32-yard punt to the Florida State seven-yard line with 5:22 to go in the game, but two cooks from Dalvin Cook went backwards set ting up a third-and-12. The Seminoles chose to run it a third-straight time on third down and Cook man aged to run it out to the 10-yard line. Notre Dame’s final chance came at the 49-yard line with 2:53 remaining in the contest. With fourth-and-18 from their own 43-yard line, Robinson came up with his biggest catch of the game picking up 20 yards on a pass from Golson. Golson rushed to the eight-yard line with a 12-yard scramble to give the Irish a first-and-goal with 45 seconds remain ing in the game. Notre Dame faced a fourth-and-goal from the two-yard line with 17 seconds to go and Robinson caught his third touchdown of the game from two yards away, but an offensive pass inter ference call negated the touchdown. The Irish were forced to the 18-yard line on their second fourth-down attempt, but this time luck was on the Seminoles side as the pass the pass was intercepted in the back of the end zone by Jacob Pugh.

We have the potential to win games and leave a mark. I am excited and ready for an awesome season.” McCardle said leadership will be one of the reasons this year’s team will make those strides. “I expect my two return ing captains, Brittney Lee and Haley Roberson, will really lead the way on the field,” McCardle said. “Joining the captains will be Krysten Giebeig. She defi nitely helped lead the team last year by her actions on and off the field, but this year I have seen her become a much more vocal player on the field, which is exciting to see.” Most of the team returns from last year, but the gains are notable according to McCardle. “I see a huge difference in the attitudes and work ethic of the girls,” McCardle said. “The will and want to win is stronger and more evident in how they are pre paring for this season. Over the summer, we had girls playing club ball, going to tournaments and camps at different colleges, condi tioning and really putting in the off-season work to get ready for this year.” But the players aren’t the only ones who learned les sons since last season. “I learned a lot through my experience last season,” McCardle said. “After every game, win or lose, you need to reflect on what can be done differently to improve for the next game. You must form relationships with the players in order for them to trust and respect you as their coach. I am excited to implement the things I learned last season.” But will the learning be enough to get over the hump in the district? “Unfortunately all of the teams are strong con tenders in our district,” McCardle said. “But Chiles and Gainesville high schools are both strong teams that will be tough matches.” SCOREBOARD PCERA won with 56 We had 72 players in PCERA Golf Tournament on October 11.

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Nicki Newmans INDIANS: Fall to Madison County Continued From Page 1BChristian Helsel caught a 22-yard pass to position the Indians deep in Cowboys’ territory. Then from the Madison nine-yard line, quarterback DJ Jackson again threw a pass in Helsel’s direction this time connecting for a touchdown. Brandon Shrum added the PAT and cut the Madison lead to 12-7 with 3:21 to play in the half. Madison got the ball back late in the second quarter and Redding caught his sec ond touchdown pass, this time from 25-yards out for a 19-7 lead at the half. Fort White took the opening kickoff but that drive ended in an inter ception by the Cowboys’ Sharrod Jones. Late in the third quarter Eric Bright Jr. gave the Cowboys a 25-7 lead with a three-yard touchdown run. Bright finished his night carrying 17 times for 89 yards and a touchdown. The final score of the game came for Fort White when Donald Robinson carried the ball 76 yards to make the final 25-14. After the game Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said that mistakes and big plays really hurt his squad. “We made mistakes and we gave up big plays,” Jackson said. “They took advantage of it.” Williams finished his night 8-of-9 passing for 145 yards and three touch downs passes. Jackson, for the Indians, finished 10-of-16 for 55 yards, one touchdown and 3 interceptions. Cameron White carried the ball 18 times for the Indians for 78 yards. The Indians will travel to Live Oak’s Paul Langford Stadium to take on the Suwannee Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Then the final district game pits Fort White against Taylor County in the regular sea son home finale. The win ner of the Fort White-Taylor County game will advance as the District 2-4A runner up. “We still have a lot to play for,” Coach Jackson said after the game. “In two weeks, we have the chance to get in the play offs, we’re going to have to work hard and be ready for it.”

A new look for LifeSouthInterior upgrade nearly complete; open house Tues. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe LifeSouth Community Blood Center, Suwannee Valley Regional Headquarters in Lake City, has been under construction for months as the building gets an interior upgrade. Lorrie Woods, regional manager, said the work began around July and the final touches are being made now. “We started out very slow and all of a sudden everything progressed and the next thing you know we had new paint, new carpet, new walls, all in one day,” she said. “It felt like an army of men walked in, started tearing down walls, paint and desks and then the next day you walked in it’s almost brand new.” As a way of welcoming the community to TONY BRITT/ Lake City ReporterLorrie Woods, LifeSouth Community Blood Centers regional manager, reviews inventory at the local facility. Facebook unfriends federal drug agency LIFESOUTH cont. on 2C By ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated PressWASHINGTON — Facebook wants assurances from the Drug Enforcement Administration that it’s not operating any more fake profile pages as part of ongoing investigations. Facebook’s chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, said in a letter Friday to DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart that law enforce-ment agencies need to fol-low the same rules about being truthful on Facebook as civilian users. Those rules include a ban on lying about who you are. Sullivan’s letter was in response to a New York woman’s federal lawsuit claiming that a DEA agent created a fake online per-sona using her name and photographs stored on her cellphone. In court filings, Sondra Arquiett said her pictures were retrieved from her cellphone after she was arrested in July 2010 on drug charges and her cell-phone seized. Arquiett said the fake page was being used by DEA agent Timothy Sinnigen to interact with “dangerous individuals he was investigating.” Arquiett is asking for $250,000 in damages. “Facebook has long made clear that law enforce-ment authorities are subject to these policies,” Sullivan wrote. “We regard DEA’s conduct to be a know-ing and serious breach of Facebook’s terms and poli-cies.” Facebook also wants the DEA to confirm that it has stopped using any other fake profile pages it may have created. A DEA spokesman did not immediately respond to a telephone message seek-ing comment. Last week the agency announced it would review whether the Facebook guise went too far. Obama’s credit card declined The Associated PressWASHINGTON — The Secret Service is charged with watching the pres-ident’s back, but who’s watching his wallet? When his credit card was declined last month while dining in New York, President Barack Obama wondered if he had become a victim of identity theft. “It turned out, I guess I don’t use it enough,” Obama said Friday at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. “They thought there was some fraud going on,” he said, chatting while announcing a government plan to tighten security for debit cards that transfer federal benefits like Social Security to millions of Americans.

the renovated facility, LifeSouth has sched-uled an “Oktoberfest Open House.” The event will take place from 4:30 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. The open house event will fea-ture craft beer, wine, soft drinks and hors d’oeuvres and a celebra-tory ribbon cutting. LifeSouth Community Blood Center, 833 SW State Road 47, has been a Columbia County business since January 1980 at different loca-tions. The $100,000-plus interior renovation was the first facelift for the current building since it was built in 1996. The Suwannee Valley Regional headquarters in Lake City serves as the main facility for five counties in the Suwannee Valley region and is also the home for two bloodmobiles. The renovation work consisted of new floors, carpet, furniture and lighting. Woods said the renovation also included the addition of new flat screen televisions, more donor beds, addi-tional office space and upgrades to the office conference room. Wifi is now available for all donors. “We have big 50inch TV in our donor room that we’re very proud of,” she said. “We replaced our 20-inch television.” Additional renovation was also done in the blood storage area. “We modernized the way it looks in the back,” Woods said. “Stainless steel tables and equipment are there now instead of the wooden desks.” She said the renovation also makes for a more efficient work place. “We also incorporated all our equipment in the same area so we’re not walking across the building to get one product and then back onto the other side. We absolutely love the renovation.” With the renovation the office’s main colors have changed from pink and blue to a predominant red with more of a retro atmo-sphere. Kim Glover was recently added to the staff as its donor recruiter, the per-son who informs the public about upcom-ing LifeSouth events. Glover also sets the calendar with agency events, often up to a year in advance, as well as recruits donors to the center. “I love this,” Glover said. “It feels good to be able to give back to the community and to help people. To me there is no greater cause than saving lives.” The Suwannee Valley Regional Blood Center’s goal is to collect around 13,000 13,500 pints of blood annually. Agency officials said there is always a need for more blood donors, especially donors for O-negative blood types. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19-25, 20142CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Name That Company@Yl`ckdp]`ijkZXi`e(0'+%Pfl dXpbefnd\]fidp]XeZpZXij# Ylk@dXe`e[ljki`Xcgfn\i_flj\# gifm`[`e^gfn\i]fiX`iZiX]k#j_`gjXe[cXe[Xggc`ZXk`fej%Dp\e^`e\j gfn\idfi\k_Xe*'Zfdd\iZ`XcX`i$ ZiX]kj#`eZcl[`e^k_\e\n8`iYlj8*,' Xe[k_\9f\`e^./.;i\Xdc`e\i%@_Xm\ Xcdfjk(*#'''\e^`e\j`ej\im`Z\`ek_\ Z`m`cX\ifjgXZ\dXib\k%@_Xm\+#'''dXi`e\ Zljkfd\ijXe[\hl`gd\ek`ejkXcc\[fedfi\ k_Xe*'#'''m\jj\cjnfic[n`[\#`eZcl[`e^ k_fj\f].'eXm`\j%@m\jfc[k_fljXe[jf]^Xj kliY`e\j#_Xm\dfi\k_Xe,'p\Xijf]\og\i`$ \eZ\n`k_elZc\Xigfn\iXe[\dgcfpdfi\k_Xe (.#'''\e^`e\\ij%N_fXd@6Know the answer?

It was taken over in a leveraged buyout that saddled it with over $40 billion in debt. That, combined with some bad bets on natural gas prices, sent Energy Future Holdings into bankruptcy. It wasn’t a small company, either — it had more than 9,000 employees and nearly $6 billion in 2013 revenue. Think of Enron, too, and the many employees whose retirement accounts there were unexpectedly wiped out. Of course, many companies offer some sort of equity stake as part of employee compensation, often via matching contributions to 401(k) plans made with company stock. If you find yourself with a significant stake in your employer’s stock, it’s not automatically a bad thing. But save and invest on your own for your retirement as if your company’s stock were to wind up worthless. If your employer thrives, then your shares can be icing on your retire-ment cake. Consider your company stock a bonus and maybe an oppor-tunity to retire earlier, but don’t make it the cornerstone of your retirement plan, lest you lose both your job and your financial future. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Calling T-Mobile … T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS), branding itself “the Un-Carrier,” is aggres-sively improving its network. After more than two years of modernization that included scooping up a lot of low-band spectrum, T-Mobile now has the fastest 4G LTE network in the United States. Low-band spectrum is impor-tant because low-band signals can penetrate buildings better, providing better indoor coverage. Such signals also travel farther, which allows carri-ers to build fewer cell towers, saving on capital expenditures in the process. In 2013, T-Mobile moved aggressively on pricing to attract subscrib-ers with promotions. The results are paying off, as T-Mobile netted more than 1 million subscribers in each of the past five quarters, gain-ing market share from its larger, entrenched rivals. T-Mobile is succeeding because CEO John Legere has positioned the company as an agitator — a brand willing to call foul on its whole indus-try. With its Un-Carrier campaign, lower prices and more transparency than its competitors, the company is getting stronger. Legere has made it quite clear that T-Mobile isn’t letting up on its aggressive strategies anytime soon, saying: “We have com-pletely reversed T-Mobile’s trajectory and started a revolution that is chang-ing the rules in wireless.” Many have speculated that T-Mobile would be an attractive asset for an acquirer, but it’s becoming harder to see how the company would benefit from such a deal when it seems to be doing just fine on its own. TheMotley Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich 8jbk_\=ffc Dp;ldY\jk@em\jkd\ek Both Dumb and SmartMy dumbest investment was not paying attention to my stocks. I let several stocks decline over time because my portfolio was not a priority. I just held on as though they would perform well forever. (The 2008 market crash didn’t help, either.) When you lose 75 percent on a stock, you are defi-nitely not paying attention, and you should probably be in cash instead. Fortunately, I kept doing nothing after they fell, and they eventually gained back what they lost and grew more. — B.E., Land O’ Lakes, Florida The Fool Responds: It’s definitely risky not to follow the progress of the companies in which you invest, but you made a smart move by not bailing when the market crashed and you saw how much you’d lost. Many peo-ple do that, locking in losses and missing out on recoveries. Some-times, of course, a stock falls for a good reason and for a long time. When you lose faith in a com-pany’s future, selling is the right thing to do. If you don’t have the time or interest to keep up with your stocks, consider simple index funds instead.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Sorry, we can’t provide individual financial advice Don’t Jump at IPOsQAre initial public offerings (IPOs) good investments? — M.C., New OrleansAIPOs can be volatile and frequently don’t fare too well in their first year. Also, it’s mainly been the rich or well-connected who get shares at their low initial prices. The rest of us end up buying later, often after prices have risen considerably. The Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, for example, debuted on the market last month. Shares were initially priced at $68 apiece, but due to high demand, opened at $92.70, surging 38 percent on the first day. The shares have traded below that since. ***QWhat are trading curbs? — B.S., Norwich, ConnecticutATrading curbs temporarily restrict all or some trading during periods of volatility. They have taken various forms over time. After the stock market crash of 1987, for example, which was partly blamed on computer-pro-gram trading (institutional investors making high-volume trades via computer), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) instituted trading curbs on program trading. Those curbs were discontinued in 2007. “Circuit breakers” were a powerful kind of trading curb, halting trading entirely for an hour, two hours or the rest of the day whenever the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped, respectively, by 10 per-cent, 20 percent or 30 percent. New circuit-breaker rules for individual stocks as well as the overall market (now represented by the S&P 500 instead of the Dow) shut down trading for 15-minute intervals based on a drop of 7 percent or 13 percent, and for the rest of the day based on a drop of 20 percent. New “limit up, limit down” (LULD) breakers, meanwhile, will not stop trading entirely, but will restrict it within a defined band when triggered by volatility.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in — see Write to Us =ffcjJZ_ffc The One Stock You Should Probably AvoidInvesting in stocks is one of the best ways to build real wealth over time. But there’s one stock that’s par-ticularly risky for you to buy. It’s so risky, in fact, that you should probably avoid buying it alto-gether. Which stock is this, you ask? It’s your employer’s. From a pure investment perspective, it’s no riskier for you to own your employer’s stock than it is for any other investor to own it. But from a total financial risk perspec-tive, trouble at that particular com-pany can hurt you far more than it would hurt an outside investor. After all, should the company get into trou-ble, not only would your investment be at risk, but your job could be, too.

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19-25, 2014 BY ANICK JESDANUN and BRANDON BAILEYAP Technology WritersCUPERTINO, Calif. Apple unveiled a thinner iPad Thursday with a faster processor and a better camera as it tries to drive excitement for tablets amid slowing demand. The iPad Air 2, at 6.1 millimeters thin, also adds many of the features previously available on iPhones. That includes the ability to take burst shots and slow-motion video and the inclusion of a fingerprint ID sensor for use instead of a passcode. It also has an anti-reflective coating, a first for a tablet, which makes it 56 percent less reflective, said Philip Schiller, senior vice president of marketing, on stage at the event at Apples headquarters in Cupertino, California. The iPad Air 2 will start at $499. Apple also updated its iPad Mini device, with a starting price of $399. The new devices will begin shipping next week, with advance orders starting Friday. Meanwhile, Apple made its new Mac operating system, Yosemite, available as a free download starting Thursday. Apple Pay, the companys new system for using iPhones to make credit and debit card payments at retail stores, will launch on Monday. CEO Tim Cook opened Thursdays product-launch event by touting strong reception to the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, released last month. Its been an incredible year and tremendously busy already, he said, adding that the new iPhones have been the fastest-selling in Apples history. He reiterated that the iPhones will launch in China in just a few hours and said the launch is aligned with a rollout of 4G cellular networks there.New iPadsIts been a year since Apple came out with a lighter, thinner full-size model called the iPad Air. Apple refreshed that with a device that is even thinner, by 18 percent at 6.1 millimeters. The rear camera is boosted to 8 megapixels, matching whats found in iPhones. Previous iPads had a 5 megapixel camera. Thursdays event comes as sales of Apples iPads have dropped. Through the first half of this year, Apple had shipped 29.6 million iPads, a 13 percent drop from the same time last year. Apple plans to issue results for the latest quarter on Monday. Apple has been facing competition from cheaper tablets running Googles Android operating system. Ahead of Apples event, Google announced Wednesday that an 8.9inch Nexus 9 tablet is coming next month at a starting price of $399, $100 less than the 9.7-inch iPad Air. It will run a new version of Android, dubbed Lollipop. Besides competition, theres been an overall slowdown in tablet demand. This week, research firm Gartner projected worldwide shipments of 229 million tablets this year. Although thats up 11 percent compared with 2013, its far less than the 55 percent growth seen last year and the more than doubling in sales in 2012. Cook sought to address that by pointing out that the 225 million iPads sold cumulatively since 2010 is more than any other product Apple has sold in the first four years. He also said Apple sold more iPads over the past year than many manufacturers have for personal computers.Mac updatesThe company unveiled new iMacs with a sharper display, following what Apple has already done on its mobile devices and MacBook laptops. The company says the new iMacs have seven times the pixels found on standard high-definition television sets. Apple also released its new Yosemite operating system for Macs as a free download. The Mac update includes aesthetic changes as well as new functionality, such as the ability to make phone calls with an iPhone nearby and a one-stop search tool for both locally stored documents and online resources. Apple has been releasing Mac updates more frequently, in part to time them with annual changes to the iOS system for iPhones and iPads. Many of the new Mac features will complement whats found in iOS 8, including the ability to start tasks such as email on one device and finish on another. During a demo, Apple executive Craig Federighi made a phone call to Stephen Colbert from his Mac and connected with the comedian. The call was actually being made through a nearby iPhone. He also used Apples upcoming Apple Watch as a remote control to control a Mac presentation being projected onto a big-screen set via Apple TV.Apple PayApple has already announced its new payments system, Apple Pay, but the iPhone feature wasnt made available right away. In announcing a Monday launch date, Cook also said deals have been made with hundreds of additional credit card issuers since the service was announced last month. Cook also said additional merchants plan to accept Apple Pay by the end of the year. With Apple Pay, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will be able to make payments at brick-and-mortar stores by holding their phone near a card reader. The new iPhones have a wireless chip to transmit the information needed to complete the transaction. Owners of older models wont be able to use Apple Pay, even with the software update. Consumers arent likely to abandon plastic credit cards until a majority of retailers, especially smaller merchants, accept contactless payments such as Apple Pay. But Apple Pay may spur transactions over mobile Web browsers and apps this holiday season, since it lets consumers avoid typing in credit card information each time. The new iPad Air 2 will be able to make browser transactions, but not payments at retail stores.Apple WatchApple says it will release tools next month so that developers can begin making apps for the upcoming Apple Watch wearable device. Rival smartwatches running Android have suffered from not having many useful apps from the start. Apple is hoping to have a strong app store in place when Apple Watch debuts next year.iPad Air 2, new Macs debut Associated PressNEW YORK Darden Restaurants, the parent company of the Olive Garden, said Thursday that former Wal-Mart executive Bill Simon is returning to its board of directors. Simon was a company director for two years, but did not run for a new term in 2014. On Friday Darden shareholders voted to replace the companys entire board with a slate of 12 nominees proposed by investment firm Starboard Value LP. Starboard had criticized Dardens management on a variety of issues ranging from the sale of its Red Lobster chain to the operations at Olive Garden, which has continued to struggle. Simons appointment expands Dardens board to 13 seats. The company said it will continue to evaluate potential board candidates and could name another board member. Simon, 55, was president and CEO of Walmart US for four years before he resigned in August. He was also an executive at Brinker International Inc., the parent company of Chilis restaurants. Darden Restaurants Inc. also owns smaller chains including LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille and Yard House. The Orlando, Florida, company promoted Gene Lee to interim CEO on Tuesday. Lee had been the companys chief operating officer.Darden returns former director Simon to board WIKIMEDIA COMMONSThe new iMacs have sharper displays and come with the capability of Yosemite operating system for a free download.By ERIC TUCKER and JACK GILLUMAssociated PressWASHINGTON FBI Director James Comey warned in stark terms Thursday against the push by technology companies to encrypt smartphone data and operating systems, arguing that murder cases could be stalled, suspects could walk free and justice could be thwarted by a locked phone or an encrypted hard drive. Privacy advocates called the concerns exaggerated and little more than recycled arguments the government has raised against encryption since the early 1990s. Likening encrypted data to a safe that cannot be cracked or a closet door that wont open, Comey said the move by tech companies to pro tect communications in the name of privacy risks impeding a wide range of criminal investigations. We have the legal authority to intercept and access communications from information pursu ant to court order, but we often lack the technical ability to do so, Comey said in a Brookings Institution speech. The speech, which echoes concerns he and others in law enforcement have previously made, comes soon after announcement by Apple and Google that their new operating systems will be encrypted, or protected by coding. While the companies actions are understandable, he said, the place they are leading us is one we shouldnt go to without careful thought and debate. Encryption isnt just a technical feature. Its a marketing pitch. But it will have very serious consequences for law enforcement and national security agencies at every level, Comey said. Comey also said the FBI was committed to a front-door approach, including through court orders, to intercepting communications. Privacy advocates have long been concerned that that intercept would create an opening for hackers to exploit. Whether you call it a front door or a back door, weakening the security of a system to enable law enforcement access also opens that door to foreign governments and criminals, said Christopher Soghoian, principal technologist with the ACLUs Speech, Privacy and Technology Project.FBI director warns against encryption on cell phones MORGUEFILEJames Comey argues suspects could walk free and justice could be thwarted by a locked phone or an encrypted hard drive. Protecting data in the name of privacy could stall investigations.

Business Briefs Associated Press NEW YORK Mattels got girl problems and her name is Barbie. Sales of the iconic doll continue to slide and a surprising drop in sales of its American Girl toys could become another headache for the toy company as it heads into the crucial holiday season. Mattel reported Thursday that Barbie sales fell 21 percent for the three months ended Sept. 30, even sharper than the 15 percent drop in the second quarter. And American Girls third-quarter sales declined 7 percent, compared with a 6 percent rise in the second quarter. Heightening tensions even more, Mattels rival Hasbro Inc. recently landed the rights for dolls from the blockbuster Disney movie Frozen, a coveted relationship for Mattel. The rights for the Frozen dolls will go to Hasbro in the spring of 2016. Dolls are traditionally a tough market to corner. Theres a lot of competition and the affections of the target audience little girls can be fleeting. Its not all bad news for Mattel, however. It has recently introduced dolls that have resonated with customers even as Barbies star appears to fade. Sales of Disney Princess and Ever After High dolls were given most of the credit for the 1 percent increase in sales of other doll brands in the quarter. Mattel toys that are geared toward boys are also a bright spot. Sales for the Wheels category, which includes the Hot Wheels and Matchbox brands, climbed 4 percent. Mattel Inc., based in El Segundo, California, reported a profit of 97 cents per share on revenue of $2.02 billion for the period Thursday. Its adjusted earnings came to 98 cents. That was short of Wall Street expectations. Analysts had expected per-share earnings of $1.02, and revenue of $2.18 billion, according to a poll by FactSet. Shares fell 3 percent to $29.62 in late morning trading. The stock is off about 38 percent this year.Barbies shine fades WIKIMEDIA COMMONS

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: I am a retired widow, crippled with rheu matoid arthritis. Every October, I start dreading Halloween, which I consider to be a legal form of extortion. Living on Social Security, I really don’t want to waste money for candy. Also, it is difficult for me to get up and down every five minutes to hand out candy. Too many of the “children” are 16to 19-year-old males. I have tried keep ing the lights off and “hiding” in my bedroom, but I wake the next morning to find toilet paper in my trees and shrubbery. Once, my front door had been sprayed “Stingy Old Witch.” The police said they couldn’t act because I didn’t see who did it. Of course, even if I had seen them, they probably would have been in a costume. Do you have any sugges tions? — GROUCHY GRANDMA IN AUSTIN, TEXAS DEAR GRANDMA: Yes. Because what you’ve done hasn’t worked, buy a large bag of inexpensive candy -they are often for sale at this time of year -and when the “extortionists” knock on your door, pay up. Because your physi cal condition makes it difficult for you to get up and down, enlist the help of a relative or neighbor to help you dole it out, or leave the bowl outside by your door with a note saying: “Take ONE.” DEAR ABBY: I have been HIV-positive for more than 20 years and I am in good health. I never told anyone in my family about it. I have now returned to my home town after being away for 40-plus years. I want to tell my father and brothers that I’m HIV-positive, but I don’t want to alarm them or have them start meddling in my life. I feel like I’m lying by not telling them. What should I do? — I’VE GOT A SECRET DEAR GOT A SECRET: Maintaining one’s privacy is not lying. Because your intu ition tells you that if you disclose your HIV status to your family they will be “alarmed or start meddling,” don’t do it. You’re in good health, your HIV is being well managed and the only person who has to know is your sex partner. DEAR ABBY: If I name my son after myself, he will be called “Jr.” or “II.” But what if my wife named her daughter after herself? I have never heard of it happening, but I just wondered. Would she be called “Jr.” or “the II,” too? — HARRY IN ATHENS, GA. DEAR HARRY: According to Emily Post, the answer is yes. Junior, Senior, II and III are suffixes used by men, but can also be used by women. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Use your energy wisely. Practice something that requires physical agility or sign up for an activity that will motivate you to excel. Romance is in the stars and ending your day with someone special will promote a closer relationship. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t let anyone make decisions for you. A plan you have will make a difference and must be carried out to the end. Someone will recognize your dedication and make you an interesting offer with unusual benefits. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Solid investments will pay off. You can negotiate deals and send out your resume with con fidence. As long as you don’t let your emotions interfere with your decisions, you will make remarkable changes to your cur rent situation. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Spend time at home. What you do to improve your envi ronment will bring you greater stability and enjoyment. You are best to deal with friends, children and lovers carefully. Stifle anyone who asks for too much or puts demands on you. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An adventure will get you moti vated and moving in the right direction. Changes at home will lift your spirits and lead to new cash opportunities. You can cut costs or start a small home-based business. Turn downtime into a cash cow. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Consider your vocational options. You can make a change if you are willing to pick up additional skills. Putting more into something you’ve wanted to do for a long time will bring you that much closer to your dreams. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Plan to spend time with the person you enjoy being with the most. A day trip will add to the excitement and bring you closer together. Favors will be granted if you ask, and sharing a mutual goal will pay off. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be torn in different directions when it comes to emotional matters. Don’t mix business with pleasure or you will end up in a vulnerable position. Overreacting must be avoided if you wish to main tain your stellar reputation. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Show everyone what you can do. The spotlight is where you belong and will bring you benefits. Don’t ignore someone you care for or your gains will have little meaning at the end of the day. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What you want will have to be modified if you plan to make any forward motion. Expect to be criticized if you are too controlling. Look at the big pic ture and try to please everyone in order to get what you want. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put a little magic into your love life. Plan a romantic eve ning if you are in a relationship or attend an event geared toward meeting other singles. A posi tive change in your life due to a settlement, contract or financial venture is apparent. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to what you know and do the best. Don’t give in to anyone making drastic changes. Ulterior motives are likely to lead to disappointment. Make sure your heart is in the right place before you make any com mitments. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Some cheap candy might work magic on Halloween goblins Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

I just told someone the other day that my husband has golf and I have a suitcase. And in that suitcase is my lap top, iPad and every charger you can think of, that way I can work from anywhere. Its what I do. I want to be available even when Im on vacation as crazy as that may sound. I admit that I am a control freak and have difficulty letting go, but Im getting better at it. I also have a wonderful assistant who is a great help and colleagues at my REMAX office who are always willing to cover for me when needed. When Im on a road trip, for example, I get up and answer emails every morning, then throughout the day depending on what activities are scheduled, and at least each night. On my last trip, it seemed like every time we entered a National Park, the cell service was gone. I had to play catch up later which was frustrating. Another aspect of my life that makes it easier to travel often is how low maintenance our lives really are. My husband and I have each other and a house to take care of; no kids, no pets, and not even any plants! And he travels a lot for work already. Hes always my first choice in a travel partner, but Im also fortunate to have friends when hes not interested. When I started this column a couple of years ago, I had about four years worth of entries in the Travel Journal I keep. So some of what you read might be from a recent trip or from a trip I have previously taken. When I pull those old stories out to create my column, it is fun going back and reliving those experiences with you. I have wonderful memories. So there you go. Thats a little bit more about me and the life Ive created for myself that affords me the opportunities to travel as much as I do. If I had it my way, Id go somewhere new every month, even if its just a weekend getaway. However, Scott and I also have some favorite places that we like to return to more frequently; like New York, Las Vegas and now Nashville. We just went to Nashville earlier this year for our 20th wedding anniversary and we are already going back in November for my husbands birthday. I still have a pretty extensive bucket list that includes new places and a handful of states that I have yet to visit. So I keep working at a job I love and planning more trips. Its just what I do.

And, obviously, since you know there is no better choice than Florida Gateway College, you decide to begin or continue your education with us. First, let me thank you for making this hypothetical decision we here at Florida Gateway College strive to provide the best educational opportunities available and we know you wont regret your choice of college. But now that youve made that decision, whats next? You obviously dont just walk into a classroom and begin taking notes. I mean, you could, but I have no doubt our professors would eventually notice you arent a student. We always talk about, Start Here, Go Anywhere its something of a slogan for us but what does Start Here really mean? If you want to become a student at Florida Gateway College, where do you begin? That answer would be our Admissions Office, located in Building 015. Of course, it isnt as easy as walking up to the window and saying, Id like to attend Florida Gateway College. Trust us, were with you we wish it were that simple! But the State of Florida requires a number of items that must be presented with an application, and you know laws arent exactly something we can ignore. So, what do you need to bring with you? A proof of identification is a good start preferably a government-issued photo ID such as your drivers license, or something along those lines to prove you are who you say you are and, of course, the application itself. We also need your official high school transcripts or high school equivalency transcript (GED), and official college transcripts, if applicable. For students who were home-schooled, an FGC home education completion affidavit is required. Let me stress the word official here these have to be requested from these institutions and provided to FGC in a sealed, unopened envelope and/ or may be submitted electronically by the sending institution. Seal broken? Do you just have copies of your diploma or transcript? Sorry, neither of those will cut it! Now, we do have programs that dont require high school completion, but if youre looking for Financial Aid assistance, high school completion and the transcripts are required. And here are a few other things to remember: Be prepared to go ahead and declare a major. Sure, you may not know exactly what you want to attend college for remember, we just made that decision a few paragraphs ago but your major can be changed at any time. Thats why we have advisors! If youve attended FGC in the past, but havent attended a class in the past year, you do have to enroll again. Or, if you were a dual enrollment student and plan on returning as a full-time college student, youll have to re-apply. Sorry! If you plan on receiving in-state tuition rates, youll also need to bring proof of Florida residency. You can visit the FGC website for more information on Florida residency requirements. A lot of this can be done online at www.fgc. edu, but we know there are a lot of people who would prefer that face-toface experience! We know this process can be daunting, especially if you have never attended before. We also know that no two students are the same there are many non-traditional and distinctive lives out there, so the enrollment process will be different for some students than the others. But thats why we have a helpful, engaging staff to make sure you are enrolled and are soon on the career path of your choice. And your timing couldnt be more perfect we are actually accepting applications for admission right now for the Spring semester, so its not too late to start your education at Florida Gateway College. There are some deadlines you should be aware of, though, if you plan on attending classes this January. If youre looking to receive Financial Aid of any sort, youll need to have all of your documents including official transcripts, tax returns, etc. submitted by November 7. The last day to submit an application for the Spring is December 10. Your official transcripts must be on file by this date. Registration begins November 13. You must be actively enrolled at FGC to be able to register for classes. Simple enough, right? And yes, while you do have a few weeks left before registration starts and more than a month until the admissions deadline, its better to get started early and not have to scramble to get all of your paperwork together. Plus, the sooner youre admitted, the earlier you can register for classes. This means you get the first shot at getting into the classes you want to take this coming semester. Now youre now ready to make that first step into your continued education! Call the Admissions Office at (386) 754-4396 to get started! And if youre interested in setting up a guided tour of campus, please call (386) 754-4246.

He can be reached at troy.roberts@fgc.edu. her to go to church. She ran the whole way there and fell on her knees when she got there. Hill said she looked up and saw a picture in the church of Jesus embracing a lamb. Right then, she asked God to hold her like that. He saved me that day, Hill said. For the first time, I felt what it meant to be loved. Her life wasnt easy after that, but God helped her through the hard times, she said. Its been an uphill battle, Hill said. About seven years ago, she felt called to share her testimony, so she started writing a book. The book is called, Searching for Holy Ground and chronicles her walk with Christ and the miracles she has witnessed. While writing this book, other members of the church she was then attending said they wanted to find a way to share their testimonies about how God has changed their lives also. So she decided to include their stories at the end of the book. In 2011, her next book, Mannys Gift, was published, which tells the tale of a man who immigrated to the fictional town of Forest Hills, Va. and becomes a Christian. With so many of the characters from Mannys Gift having unfinished journeys, Hill decided to write a series set in Forest Hills. The books are about the members of a church in Forest Hills. Its a whole community, she said. Hill has written four more Forest Hills books since then, The Crossroads of Forest Hill, Harvest Time, Christmas at Forest Hills, and Revenge at Forest Hills and expects to write at least a few more books in the series. Her ideas for the books come to her in dreams, and shes been dreaming a lot lately, she said. Hill said her favorite book is her first one, Searching for Holy Ground, because its the one that got her into writing. But she loves all her books and the characters in Forest Hills. I love all of them, Hill said. Theyre like my family. The most rewarding part of writing the books has been the response from them, she said. People have told her that by reading about how God helped the characters get through their struggles, they realized they can get through their own problems with Gods help. What she wants people to see is that it doesnt matter how you are when you start walking with Jesus. Your journey and how it ends is whats important, she said. Hill said she thinks shell write another series after finishing Forest Hills and is currently working on a childrens book. Searching for Holy Ground and her Forest Hills series are available on Amazon and at the Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center gift shop, the LifeStyle Enrichment Center and Ms. Wezzies Haircut.
