By STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comA lawsuit alleges absentee ballot fraud in the Lake City Council District 10 primary on August 28, but says the results should be nullified on broader grounds as well. According to the suit, filed late Friday by Madison attorney George Reeves on behalf of District 10 Candidate Vanessa George, the Lake City charter requires the city to conduct its own elections, rather than allow them to be staged by the county supervisor of elections as is currently done. George, a first-time candidate, lost the primary to incumbent Eugene Jefferson by 21 votes, 360 to 329. Jefferson is set to be sworn in November 19. The lawsuit alleges that allowing county officials, including the county canvassing board, to oversee city elections violates the city charter, meaning all of the votes received in the race are illegal. The suit also says the city is required to have its own qualifying period for elections. The city currently uses the same one as Columbia County, which in the case of the recent primary was June 18-22. Under the Lake City Charter, and thus according to the lawsuit, the qualifying period should have been July 9-13. Since city candidates were directed to qualify at the wrong time, none of them was purportedly eligible to run. Finally, the suit alleges absentee ballot fraud, a recurring theme in District 10 in recent years. On August 13, State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister confirmed that Jeffersons wife is under investigation for election fraud.

TS Florence making her way northBy STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comAlthough it is too early to say for sure, the National Weather Service is advising residents of North Florida to have a plan in place regarding Tropical Storm Florence, which as of Saturday afternoon was expected to reach hurricane strength by later that night. Meteorologist-intern Kip Bricker of the NWS Jacksonville office said that as of approximately 4 p.m. both the expected time and location of Florences landfall along the Eastern Seaboard were unknown. Theres still a lot of uncertainty in the storm track, Bricker said. According to the National Hurricane Centers website, forecast models projected the region potentially impacted by the storm as being anywhere from the Miami area to hundreds of miles north to the Delmarva Peninsula. Bricker advised residents to folHave a plan in place just in case, locals instructed. ELECTION continued on 2A STORM continued on 3A A3
This stemmed from a complaint filed with the Lake City Police Department that Betty Wilson Jefferson tried to get a District 10 resident to sign an already printed absentee ballot. The complaint came from Gladnell Jackson, 73, whose great nephew, Sylvester Warren, is in a relationship with candidate George. Jackson alleges she was walking toward her house when Betty Jefferson approached her saying she had something for the 73-year-old to sign an absentee ballot with Jacksons name printed on it. Jackson has never requested an absentee ballot and always votes at her polling place, she wrote in the complaint and told the Lake City Reporter. Absentee, or mail-in votes, were a major factor in Jeffersons narrow primary victory, with 249 cast for Jefferson and 98 for George. This is not the first time the Jefferson camp has been implicated in election malfeasance. In 2013, Betty Jefferson was charged with 29 crimes related to election fraud in the 2010 District 10 city election, including 19 felony counts of illegally obtaining absentee ballots. Another woman, Linda Ivery, also faced charges in that case. Adjudication of guilt was withheld, but Jefferson agreed to write apology letter to her victims as part of a plea arrangement. She was also barred from working on any political campaign for 30 months and had to make a $1,000 contribution to a charitable organization and to perform 50 hours of community service. The Florida Constitution gives the governor the power to remove elected officials who engaged in misconduct or have been convicted of a crime. Yet by itself, a criminal conviction for election fraud by a third party might not spur removal from office.

Thanks for reading.Teams now set for showdownThe News Service of FloridaState Rep. Jeanette Nunez, a Miami Republican who publicly criticized President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, was formally announced Thursday as the running mate for gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, as the GOPs statewide election slate held a display of unity. Meanwhile, Democratic hopeful Andrew Gillum selected primary-election rival Chris King as his running mate. DeSantis, a congressman with close ties to Trump, dismissed talk of Nunez initial preference in the 2016 presidential race as he described his lieu tenant-governor selection as an accomplished mother of three who is someone his daughter could admire. This is the type of person that I think is a role model for everybody, but particularly young women, DeSantis said after the unity event put on by Gov. Rick Scotts U.S. Senate campaign at the Ace Cafe in Orlando. The Nunez selection could help DeSantis, who will face Democrat Andrew Gillum in the November election, as Republicans try to attract women and Hispanic voters. Gillum on Thursday named Winter Park businessman Chris King, who lost in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, as his running mate. Nunez, 46, is a CubanAmerican born in Miami who has served as a top lieutenant to House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O Lakes, during the past two years. Nunez, who was first elected to the House in 2010 and faces term lim its this year, said she was honored by her selection as DeSantis running mate. Were going to see from our end what we stand for, the ideals and principles that we stand strong in, the conservative values making sure Florida remains the prosperous state that it continues to be, Nunez said. Im eager to get on the trail and explain what the differences are. Nunez was a sponsor in 2014 of legislation to help Dreamers, or children who are in the country illegally, qualify for in-state tuition rates at Florida colleges and universities. In 2018, she oversaw the Houses response to Hurricane Irma and was appointed by Corcoran to the Constitution Revision Commission, which meets every 20 years to consider changes to the state Constitution. Gillum said his first criteria in picking King, who is a Winter Park businessman, was selecting a running mate who could step in as governor if necessary. But we also talked about the fact that this is a difficult journey. Its hard. Its difficult work at times. And what we want to do not only in this race, but when we win the race for governor, is have a partner in helping to lead this state, Gillum said. The Gillum-King partnership is founded on a lot of similarities. Both candidates ran as outspoken progressives in the Aug. 28 Democratic primary, embracing such issues as the expansion of Medicaid, the legalization of marijuana, gun control, criminal justice reform and a $15-an-hour minimum wage.

In all, the states highest court decided the fate of four proposed constitutional amendments slated for the Nov. 6 general-election ballot. The court: --Approved Amendment 13, which would ban commercial greyhound racing in the state after Dec. 31, 2020. --Rejected Amendment 8, which would have imposed term limits on school board members, required civic literacy to be taught in schools and taken away the exclusive power of local school boards to oversee charter schools. --Approved Amendment 6, known as Marsys Law, that would create a series of constitutional rights for crime victims and would also increase the retirement age for judges. --Approved Amendment 10, which would require all local constitutional officers, including sheriffs, to be elected, and would remove the ability of charter counties to modify those offices. All of the proposed amendments under scrutiny were approved by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission, a 37-member panel that meets every 20 years and has the unique power to place constitutional changes directly on the ballot. The most significant ruling came in a 4-3 decision removing Amendment 8 from the ballot. Without issuing an immediate opinion, the divided court upheld a ruling from Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper that found the school-related ballot measure was misleading because it failed to inform voters of the chief purpose and effect of the proposal. But racing ban, other amendments OKd by state supreme court. ELECTIONContinued From 1A
SUNDA Y, SEPTEMBER 9, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER 3A Officers unhurt in Hamilton prison unrest By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comJASPER It was all hands on deck at a nearby state prison Friday, with scores of officers lining the razorwire, shotguns in hand, after reports of unrest at the Hamilton Correctional Institution Annex. No officers were hurt in the incident. Around 1:30 p.m. there was a flurry of activity on prison grounds, as dozens of heavily armed officers, some wearing riot gear, prepared to storm the annex courtyard. Law enforcement planes circled overhead and helicopters hovered. According to FDOC, about 100 inmates had begun acting out and refusing to comply with orders. FDOC Director of Communications Michelle Glady said some prisoners were shouting out and being combative. However, she said by email that there was no riot at Hamilton Correctional Annex. The inmates were ordered to stop, and when they didnt, institutional response teams engaged and outside law enforcement reported to the scene to secure the perimeter. Florida Highway Patrol vehicles poured in steadily and the Hamilton County Sheriffs Office blocked main arteries near where of officers were gathered around the prison courtyard. Lt. Pat Riordan of the Florida Highway Patrol estimated 35-40 FHP troopers responded. Scores of Hamilton County sheriffs deputies reported to the scene as well. Inside the razorwire, investigators who wore blue gloves combed the courtyard. In the annex parking lot, busloads of officers put on riot gear, and prison staff shouted orders. An ambulance was parked along a service road on standby, and white vans patrolled fence exteriors. Administration buildings were locked down by prison officials. Glady said it was protocol to go into lockdown under such circumstances, and it would likely remain in place over the weekend. They are going to cancel visitation at the annex this weekend, Glady said. She said visitation in other parts of the prison would continue. Glady denied that state prisoners in Florida were connected with nationwide strikes. Florida has not had anyone participate on the inside, Glady said. Regarding rumors of hunger strikes and facilities on lockdown, None of thats true, she said. No inmates were injured in Fridays incident. Inmates at annex brought under control quickly, says FDOC.

A year ago this week, we were all sheltering in place dealing with the effects of Hurricane Irma. Thinking back on it, many of us lost power during the storm, several suffered property damage from falling limbs and blowing debris, but overall, everyone paid attention, followed precautions and more or less weathered the storm. No question, it was an inconvenience to most of us. No one enjoys being without electricity. None of us like having our normal routines uprooted. So here we go again. September in Florida. As of this writing on Saturday evening, it appears what will become Hurricane Florence may just give northeast Florida a rude brush and thats what well continue to hope and pray. It certainly will provide cloudy skies and most likely rain by midweek, but if the models hold and you can never completely trust the weather models it will be a game-changer in the Carolinas late this week. Florence is the first of several sequential storms currently spinning along the equator across the African Sahara, soon to gain energy from Atlantic waters and speed toward the west. Theres no way at this point to predict how these storms develop or where they end up, but the probability of a busy hurricane season a busy September is upon us. During the past decade, our first responders and emergency services personnel at the county level have improved each year. Preparation techniques have been finessed and adjusted as our officials learn more about flood-prone areas and how to prevent and improve these as each storm impacts us. Our county invests a lot of budgeted taxpayer funds to prepare for serious weather situations and this is a worthwhile and necessary investment. County departments from law enforcement, fire and rescue, public works and all other support departments prepares as best they can and with county residents best interest in mind. As with any potential natural disaster, the Lake City Reporter will do its part to help inform our readers with the printed word, but also online and via social media channels during times of serious weather threats. It goes without saying that in hurricane season, preparation is the key to safety. Watch the weather this month and do what is necessary to remain safe. Be ready for anything.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION TODAY IN HISTORYJust what we fearedNo one at City Hall saw this one coming. They should have. Word came Thursday that repairs to City Hall may run as high as $3 million far in excess of the current appraised value of the building, which is $1.3 million. Its too late now, but we wonder if city officials are rethinking their decision last year to sink $5.25 million a $1 million gift coupled with a $4.25 million, interest-free, unsecured loan to developers of the Blanche Hotel. That money, some of it gone forever, some of it to be tied up for at least the next seven years, sure could come in handy in the coming days. Looking back, it is remarkable that none of them looked this far ahead. Surely it was not out of the realm of possibility that a 107-year-old building might need major, budget-busting renovation, and sooner than later. The city was warned, on the pages of this newspaper and elsewhere, but paid no heed. And so here we are. We havent yet heard city officials say they wish theyd followed through on plans to move City Hall into the Blanche when they had the chance, though other misguided souls have so opined. The reasoning there is nothing less than ridiculous. Had we committed to that far greater expense, wed really be in trouble now, trying to sell a worthless, underwater building to help offset some of the back-breaking costs that would lie ahead. At least we dodged that bullet, thanks to taxpayers, rallied by calls from this newspaper, who stood up and demanded city officials scale back their grandiose dreams. Still, as strongly as we opposed it beforehand, we now remain firmly committed to the success of the Blanche Hotel renovation project. It is all the more imperative for developers to make a go of it now. Should that fall through too, theres no good news in sight for any of us.Prepare now for storms On this date: In 1776, the second Continental Congress made the term United States official, replacing United Colonies. In 1893, Frances Cleveland, wife of President Grover Cleveland, gave birth to a daughter, Esther, in the White House; it was the first (and, to date, only) time a presidents child was born in the executive mansion. In 1919, some 1,100 members of Bostons 1,500-man police force went on strike. (The strike was broken by Massachusetts Gov. Calvin Coolidge with replacement officers.)

In 1942, during World War II, a Japanese plane launched from a submarine off the Oregon coast dropped a pair of incendiary bombs in a failed attempt at igniting a massive forest fire; it was the first aerial bombing of the U.S. mainland by a foreign power. In 1956, Elvis Presley made the first of three appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1967, the comedy show Rowan & Martins Laugh-In aired as a onetime special on NBC; its success led to a regular series beginning in January 1968.

Associated Press Coach Gene Cox, creed of a championAs we begin another high school football season, let us remember one of Floridas greatest high school football coaches, Gene Cox, who grew up in Lake City and was a 1952 graduate of Columbia High School. When Coach Cox retired, he had won more games than anybody in Florida high school history, 313 games. He had sent 16 straight quarterbacks to college on athletic scholarships and over 100 players to college on scholarship, with over 90% of them finishing with degrees. His teams won two state high school titles, had two state runners-up, won 15 districts, eight regionals, and had ten undefeated regular seasons. He was named Florida Coach of the Year six times and was named to five Halls of Fame. He produced 12 high school All American quarterbacks.

Friends of Music Concert Series set for MondayFrom staff reportsThe Friends of Music Concert Series was begun over twenty years ago by Bill Poplin, Professor-emeritus of Florida Gateway College. Concerts were held at First Presbyterian Church of Lake City where he and his wife, Linda, were musicians. For the past five years concerts have been at Covenant First Presbyterian Church of Live Oak. The Series brings outstanding performers of classical chamber music to the area, and all concerts are free to the public. Both Poplins have taught music in Columbia County; Bill at the college, and Linda at Columbia High School and at Eastside Elementary. They continue to teach by bringing concerts to the area. Weve hosted performers from all over the world, Said Linda Poplin. Many of them weve housed in our home, and its a pleasure to get to personally know musicians from other countries. Weve had performers from England, France, Austria, Romania and several outstanding groups from the Czech Republic. Many of the European musicians no longer tour in this country, but there are many wonderful performers in our United States. For the past ten years, Mrs. Poplin has been scheduling the concerts by email. Ive made many contacts throughout the State of Florida, she said. Now performers are contacting us wanting to be part of our series. Our circle of musician friends has grown tremendously. The concerts are free top the public through the generosity of people of the community. This is the only strictly classical concert series in the area and the only free series. Every effort is made to schedule The Friends of Music Concert Series so that dates do not conflict with other local concert and entertainment series.

The purpose of this public meeting is to enter into contract negotiations, at a person decides to appeal any decision made by the City with respect to any matter considered at its meetings or hearings, he or she will need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he or she may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based. AUDREY E. SIKES, MMC Construction/Debris Containers Available755-7060 Delivered to your job site today. NOTICE OF MEETING BEAUTIFICATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE CITY OF LAKE CITY NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN NOTICE OF MEETING COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE CITY OF LAKE CITY NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN AUDREY E. SIKES, MMC City Clerk OBITUARIES In July, Tetra Tech estimated the cost for recommended repairs would likely be $638,000, but could run anywhere between $600,000 and $1 million. The City Council then hired the company to perform a full assessment of the building. The integrity and lateral strength of the buildings brick walls is a chief concern, Tetra Tech wrote in the Thursday report. The walls can withhold dead and live loads at the current occupancy level, but the lateral stability and strength of the building cannot withstand current wind design requirements, according to the report. The brick facade on the west and south side of the building need repairs to guard against further deterioration, Tetra Tech wrote. That includes repairing cracks and sealing around the windows and replacing or repairing cracked sills. Tetra Tech recommends stabilizing the sagging bricks with steel lintels. The report lists other issues uncovered during the inspection, such as steel girders that werent connected to the east and west brick walls for bracing. The repairs will probably come with complications and are likely to trigger other miscellaneous interior renovations, the report warns. All these factors drive the cost of the project and should be carefully considered, Tetra Tech wrote. Helfenberger said the new estimate is not only too high, but the range between the minimum and maximum is too wide. And the city has no guarantees it wont be right back in the same position in a few years, he said. What if they discover more problems? Helfenberger said. How do we know thats going to be the end of the costs? On top of that, city staff will have to move out of the building during the repairs, disrupting service, he said. All those factors make the citys other options more attractive, Helfenberger said. At the end of the day, weve got to consider how much money were putting into City Hall and what useful life were going to get out of it, he said. City Hall is around 23,000 square feet, according to Tetra Tech. But it doesnt need to be, Helfenberger said. I think theres a lot of space thats under-utilized in the building were in, he said. I think we could get by on a lot less square footage. The offices dont have to be as large. The city bought the building in 2004 for $2.1 million. The current appraised value, according to the conuty property appraisers website, in $1.3 million. The repairs may be eligible for some kind of grant, since City Hall is in a historic district, Helfenberger said. $3MContinued From 1A

The scoreboard never tells the whole story. Columbia rode home winners, but the victory didnt come without some adversity. You cant ignore the offense sputtered at times, and special teams unit wasnt so special. Yet the Tigers overcame, thanks to their stingy defense, which has been overshadowed by the star-studded offense. Theyre a bigger part of the team than we are, quarterback Jordan Smith said to me comparing the defense and offense. Without them, theres no Columbia High football. Without them, we wouldnt be nothing. This was Columbias biggest win of the season for several reasons.

PETERSBURG (AP) Ryan Yarbrough struggled but got his 14th win, most among major league rook ies, and the Tampa Bay Rays won their 10th straight home game by beating the Baltimore Orioles 10-5 on Saturday night. After reliever Diego Castillo pitched a scoreless first, Yarbrough (14-5) entered and allowed three runs and six hits in 3 2/3 innings. Twelve of the leftys wins have come in bullpen games for Tampa Bay. Baltimores David Hess (3-10) made his scheduled start one day after getting hit in the left eye while playing catch with a football and allowed six runs two earned and seven hits over five-plus innings. The right-hander gave up four unearned runs in the first, including one that Mallex Smith scored from third base when the ball slipped out of Hess hand and rolled toward the first-base line for a wild pitch. Jonathan Villar drove in three runs and Renato Nunez hit a two-run homer for the Orioles (41-101), who dropped 60 games under .500.Rose leads by 1 shot at BMW ChampionshipNEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) Every shot means so much this time of the year, and the last two holes Saturday at the BMW Championship might mean even more. Justin Rose saved par from an awk ward stance with his golf ball in the thick grass on the slope of a bunker. Xander Schauffele left a long putt from the tight ly mown collar on the 18th green 8 feet short, and his par putt from there caught the high side of the cup and spun away. When the third round ended, Rose had a 6-under 64 six birdies on the front, all pars on the back for a one-shot lead over Schauffele and Rory McIlroy going into the final round at Aronimink, a course so soft from rain than the average score from 69 players over three rounds was 67.5 Rose was at 17-under 193, and 13 players were within five shots of the lead. That included Tiger Woods, who missed only two greens in regulation, kept a clean card, shot 66 and let a good round get away. Thats how much of a pushover Aronimink has been this week. McIlroy had a 63 with a double bogey, though he bounced back from that on the very next hole with a 3-wood that barely moved forward when it hit the green, caught the slope of a ridge and left a short eagle putt he converted.

In a game played in a steady drizzle, Bell connected off Brett Graves leading off the sixth for his 10th home run, down from 26 last year when he finished third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. Before his home run Friday, Bell had not driven in a run since Aug. 11. Nova (8-9) gave up three hits in six innings, struck out nine and walked three. He had lost three straight starts since beating San Francisco on Aug. 9 and had missed his previous turn for an undisclosed reason. Wei-Yin Chen (6-10) allowed three runs and five hits in four innings. Jose Osuna doubled leading off the second and scored on Kevin Newmans single. The Pirates took a 3-0 lead in the fourth when Jacob Stallings had a twoout RBI single and center fielder Lewis Brinson allowed the ball to bounce past him for an error that let Jose Osuna score from first. Starling Marte hit an RBI double in the seventh off Elieser Hernandez. Miguel Rojas scored on Nick Kinghams wild pitch in the eighth.Osaka upsets Serena to win her first US OpenNEW YORK (AP) Naomi Osaka beat Serena Williams 6-2, 6-4 on Saturday night to win the US Open and become the first Grand Slam singles champion from Japan. The way Williams lost, of course, was what stood out most in the match. The arguments with chair umpire Carlos Ramos and the three code violations one that gave Osaka a game for a 5-3 lead in the second set when Williams was trying to rally will be what was most remembered. Osaka was mostly dominant, drop ping only one set in her seven matches, and she saved 5 of 6 break points against Williams after erasing all 13 in the semifinals against Madison Keys. Osaka is just 20, 16 years younger than Williams and grew up idolizing the American, even asking her to pose for a selfie together at a tournament just a handful of years ago. Their age difference was the second-widest gap between womens finalists at a Slam in the professional era. Osaka, who happens to be coached by Williams former hitting partner, hit more aces, 6-3. Osaka hit the matchs fastest serve, 119 mph. She had fewer errors, 21-14. She saved five of six break points. And she covered the court better than Williams did. AUTO RACINGJimmy Johnson rides 48-race losing streak into Brickyard 400By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS Jimmie Johnson doesnt have a playoff spot locked in as the seven-time NASCAR champion prepared for rain-drenched Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the final race of the regular season. Johnson is in a 48-race losing streak headed into the Brickyard 400 and his Hendrick Motorsports team has been inconsistent all season. Its put him up by just 19 points over Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman in the battle for the 15th position on the playoff grid. That should be enough to get Johnson into the playoffs, but a surprise race winner could jumble the final berths. Weve had a tough year, Johnson said Saturday. Its been extremely frustrating and extremely difficult to live through, but we are all still very eager to turn it around and know that we will. Johnson is a four-time winner at Indianapolis and even in a crummy season, he doesnt discount how quickly things could flip for the No. 48 team. Johnson won his seventh title in 2016 and despite three wins last season, he peaked in the first quarter of the year and was 10th in the final standings. His last victory was at Dover on June 4, 2017. A win is the way to turn it around, Johnson said. Weve seen this team get hot at times and weve been unstoppable. A win would be the starting point. NASCAR moved the regular-season finale this year to Indianapolis as officials from the sanctioning body and the track tried to make the Brickyard a bigger draw. The race has struggled for much of the last decade in its traditional summer slot in part because of heat, lack of on-track action and low stakes. As the 26th race on the schedule, though, the show has increased meaning because it will finalize the 16-driver playoff field. But expectations have been doused, first by the NFL scheduling a home game across the city for the Indianapolis Colts, then a torrent of rain that disrupted all activities at the Brickyard. All activity was washed out both Friday and Saturday, including Cup qualifying. The field was set by points with Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr., the so-called Big 3 this season, lined up first through third. The washout Saturday prevented teams from getting any track time prior to the race and all will start with setups based off notes. But all previous experience was during July, when the temperature made the surface of the track hot and slick. The move to September should favor drivers, particularly as they adjust their cars. Temperature just really makes the track less or more forgiving ... and its so less forgiving when were here in July and it feels like 150 degrees, Johnson said. When I look at our practice sessions that are usually in the morning when we were here in July, the cars drive better. Its easier to tune them. In the morning qualifying sessions, cars drive a lot better. I feel that same trend will happen and hopefully it will allow us to race harder with one another since the cars are driving better. sooner, too. Florida needed triple overtime to escape in 2014 and had to overcome a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter last year in Lexington, a game in which the Gators scored twice because receivers were left uncovered. Coach Mark Stoops team did it again Saturday, but that was about all that went wrong for the Wildcats. In fact, the Cats even got a break when Southeastern Conference officials ruled Evan McPhersons 36-yard field goal attempt was wide right. Replays showed the kick hooking and appearing to cross inside the upright. Instead of trimming the lead to 21-13, the Gators trailed by two scores heading into the final 15 minutes. Feleipe Franks connected with Freddie Swain for a 4-yard score with 3:43 remaining that made it 21-16. But Franks missed a wide-open receiver for the 2-point conversion. Kentucky couldnt run out the clock, giving Florida one final shot. But Franks fumbled on a play the Gators thought was an incomplete pass, and it was returned for a touchdown on the final play. Snell and Wilson staked Kentucky to the 11-point lead, running wild as the Cats controlled both lines of scrimmage. Snell patiently waited for holes to open and averaged 6.5 yards a carry. Wilson added for 105 yards on the ground, including a 24-yard scoring run Wilson also completed 11 of 16 passes for 151 yards, with two TDs and an interception. The victory was Stoops first in six tries in the series, a signature win in conference play for sure. Stoops biggest win: Upsetting rival and then-No. 11 Louisville in 2016. For Florida and first-year coach Dan Mullen, it was a reality check after roughing up Charleston Southern 53-6 in the opener. GATORS Continued From 1B
By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterAntony van Leeuwenhoek (1623-1723), described death as the breaking of thousands of tiny chains. At the final step, cellular destruction occurs. This destruction is rapidly accelerated by heat. Since we live in Florida, its a given that we will be hunting in very warm weather. This means the game we take need extra care to ensure it will remain in optimal condition, whether it will become dinner or a mounted trophy. Its essential to cool your animal down as soon as possible advices Jack Patton, Jr. of Wildlife Transitions Taxidermy in Lake City. Deer left in the back of a pickup truck for hours will start having its hair fall out. This can affect the overall quality of the deer mount. Patton advises field dressing by removing the organs as soon as possible and then skinning the deer. After this, the deer needs to be put in a freezer. For deer that planned to be mounted, the old practice of slitting the throat should not be done because one of the most visible areas of a deer mount when it is hanging on a wall is the chest/ throat area. Any cuts or incisions made in that area would require some very intricate sewing to close it up. Jack has a diagram showing how a deer should be caped out (skinned) prior to delivery to the taxidermist. When he gets the deer, he will take measurements and skin it around the eyes and antlers, then freeze it. The hide will then be shipped to a tannery for tanning. There is a saying good things come to those who wait. Patience is needed when waiting for a deer mount. Patton shared hunters desiring a deer mount should be prepared to wait as long as one year for completion of their trophy. The biggest delay is the tannery. This is because most taxidermists send their deer hides to a tannery for processing. Tanneries have the special machinery and chemicals to properly process the hide. The wait to get the hide back from the tannery is typically is six to eight months. A major reason for the long wait is because hundreds of hides arrive at the tannery for processing soon after deer season opens. Patton stated he usually gets around 40 deer heads each year for mounting. Just a few weeks ago, he completed the last deer from last years season. Patton shared he gets the biggest thrill when he sees a client take the first look at his or her completed trophy mount. His work is considered top notch in the field and he puts a great amount of effort into making the mount as lifelike as possible. The three key areas are the eyes, position of the antlers and the musculature. His goal is for the deer to have it look just like it did when the hunter first saw it. Taxidermy is a second job for Patton. His primary occupation is a firefighter and paramedic with the Alachua Fire and Rescue in Gainesville. He stated ever since he was a little kid, he wanted to do taxidermy. To learn taxidermy, he read books and watched U Tube videos. As Patton put it, taxidermy is a lifelong learning process. Even though he is considered a master in the field of taxidermy, he feels he is still learning new and better ways. One of his goals is to become a full-time taxidermist and fishing guide when he retires. As an option to a shoulder mount, a hunter could go the European Skull mount route. In this option the antlers are left attached to the skull that has been de-fleshed. Patton boils the deer head to remove the flesh and then soaks the skull in a proprietary solution formula to bleach the head and remove any remaining tissue. The European Skull mount is less costly and can be completed much quicker. As noted by Jack Some hunters prefer to display their trophies in the European Skull mount style, Patton noted. An added bonus to the Skull Mount is it takes up far less room on a wall. Hunters should know and understand how to care for a trophy deer before pulling the trigger. After a deer is down, the animal should be cooled down as soon as possible in order to stop tissue degradation. Also, it is important to keep in mind a mediocre deer to one person might be someone elses trophy. So if there is a chance the animal will be mounted, then proper care of the animal should happen right away.

4B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2018 Santa Fe in a rivalry that has been hardly that for the past decade plus. The mentality coming into the game was to kill a gnat with a sledge hammer, said Fort White defensive back Izaya Latham, who had a fumble recovery along with Derrick Roberson. We wanted to start off strong and finish strong. If we can just keep that mentality for the rest of the season we can be a great team and hard to stop. Blair threw for 215 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Deondre Cray. All but seven of those yards came in the first half as Fort White triggered a running clock less than two minutes into the third quarter. Cray caught four passes for 93 yards while running back Stanley Maxwell rushed for 93 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries. The Indians (1-1) finished with 354 yards of total offense while the Raiders (1-2) struggled to put together anything offensively, finishing with 162. Sixty of Santa Fes yards came on the final play of the game when Deron Reid broke free on a fake punt to score a touchdown and end the shutout as time expired. But the margin of victory could have also been much greater as Fort White turned the ball over on downs inside the 5-yard line once and also fumbled inside the 20 in the first half. I thought it was a pretty dominating performance in all three phases, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. We had one turnover and turned it over on downs but we got our share of turnovers, which is always a plus. We got a little stupid there at the end with some of the penalties but as far as the effort and the domination, I thought we came out ready to go. Blairs connection with his receivers was still a work in progress in Fort Whites season-opening loss to Suwannee but he was locked and loaded against Santa Fe. The senior threw a 10-yard touchdown to Brayden Summers on the games opening drive and then came back on the next possession to hit Rahman Paul for an 11-yard score to put Fort White up 14-0. Despite turning it over on downs and losing a fumble on their next two drives, the Indians still found time to put the game away before halftime thanks to Blairs arm. Blair hooked up with Cray on the next two possessions and both times Blair had to escape pressure, roll to his right and find Cray on the move for touchdowns. Add in a two-point conversion by Matt DiMauro and Fort White took a 29-0 lead into intermission. I think we got out jitters out after that first game and we just came out ready to play this game, Blair said. We had two weeks off because we didnt get to play Providence so we were ready to play this week. Â Two weeks of practice helped us out and the boys wer e ready to eat. Latham recovered fumble on the first play of the second half and Maxwell scored two snaps later on a 13-yard scamper. Maxwell also found the end zone from 20 yards out in the fourth quarter. I saw a few things we still need to work on but not being able to play for two weeks kind of hurt us, Jackson said. Were happy with the win and happy with the way our guys played.INJURY REPORTSummers left the game in the first half after hurting his foot on a 7-yard run. He left the stadium on crutches shortly after to go for an x-ray. Im a little concerned about Brayden. He came out with a foot injury and were hoping its not too serious, Jackson said. Fort White is already without running back Corey Dryden (torn ACL) so an extended absence for Summers would be a huge loss.DID YOU SEE THAT?DiMauro is Fort Whites left tackle but he also acts as the teams kicker from time to time. A failed extra point also turned him into a runner Friday night. Following Crays second touchdown shortly before halftime, Fort White had a bad snap on the extra point but the 6-foot-2, 245pound lineman scooped up the loose ball and found an extra gear to run into the end zone for a 2-point conversion as Fort Whites sidelined erupted in celebration.UP NEXTFort White hosts Taylor County in a Region 1-3A contest next Friday at 7:30 p.m. INDIANS Continued From 1BPREP FOOTBALLFort White has a lot to clean upIt wasnt always pretty Friday night but Fort White eventually pulled away from Santa Fe for a 43-6 win. But let me tell you the Indians need to clean up their mistakes. Fridays score could have easily been Â 57-0. Actually it should have been. Fort White turned the ball over on downs inside the 5-yard line, Rahman Paul fumbled inside the 20 and Deondre Cray had a punt return for a touchdown called back for a boneheaded block in the back prior to the fumble. Cray was so far ahead of the block that I thought assistant coach Shea Showers was going to throw his headset in Steve Spurrier-like fashion he was so angry. I wouldnt have blamed him. Â Mistakes like that arent going to cut it next weeks Region 1-3A showdown against T aylor County. Thatll cost you against a good team, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Is Taylor County a good team? We think so. Thats a fair statement but weve got to minimize those mistakes. Fort White caught a break. Santa Fe isnt very good. Do all that against a good regional opponent, like Taylor County, and the Â scor eboard could look very different. Those mistakes were only the biggest. Â There wer e other penalties, such as Stanley Maxwells unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that set the Indians up with a third down in the boondocks. Â There wer e bad snaps that somehow turned beneficial, such as an extra point attempt that saw Matt DiMauro somehow bulldoze into the end zone for two points. There were even instances where Blair and his running back were going different directions for a handoff. Oh, and Fort White squandered a shutout by letting Deron Reid escape on a fake punt for a touchdown on the games final play. The Indians got away with those mistakes against the Raiders. They wont against the rest of their schedule. Weve got to finish plays, defensive back Izaya Latham said. When were tired we cant make the stupid mistakes as well. If we pick up on that well be fine. Well be all right. Despite 43 points, Jackson wants more from his offense. Blair cant do everything by himself or you get nights where he throws four interceptions like he did against Suwannee. That leads to the running game, which is unfortunately becoming thinner by the day with Brayden Summers joining Corey Dryden on the sideline with an undisclosed foot injury. That puts a lot of pressure on Stanley Maxwell, who was stuffed for a 2-yard loss on a 4th-and-1 at the 3-yard line during Fridays contest. Â Maxwell still finished with 93 yards on nine car ries but a majority of it came in the second half during a running clock. Weve got to be able to run the ball more efficiently, Jackson said. We got down there and (Santa Fe) was standing up not even lined up and were taking our time not even running a play. The quarterback turned the wrong way on one and the running back turned the wrong way, its those type of thing that come down to focus and weve got to make sure we can correct those things against good teams. Starting next week.Photos by CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White running back Stanley Maxwell lunges for extra yardage against Santa Fe on Friday night.

Ramsey was limited in practice Thursday because of right ankle soreness. Coach Doug Marrone says tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle), center Brandon Linder (knee) and right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee) also are good to go against the Giants. Seferian-Jenkins sat out practice Wednesday. So Jacksonville will go into the opener with only one significant injury: receiver Marqise Lee is out for the season after injuring his left knee in an exhibition game. Lee has surgery last week.Olivier Vernon will miss opener against JagsNew York Giants coach Pat Shurmur announced Friday that linebacker/ defensive end Olivier Vernon will miss Sundays game at MetLife Stadium with an ankle injury. Fellow linebacker Tae Davis also was listed as out with a hamstring injury. Neither player practiced this week. Vernon, who had 6 sacks in 10 games last season, was hurt in a practice before the preseason finale against the New England Patriots. He has not practiced since the injury. Either rookie Lorenzo Carter or veteran Connor Barwin probably will replace Vernon in the new 3-4 defensive scheme that will be tested by one of the top running attacks in the league.

8B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2018 this a joyful evening. Columbia (3-0) set the tone defensively in the opening minutes against Buchholz (1-2). The Tigers never wavered either forcing turnovers and using strong red-zone stands to continue their dominance in the series. The Bobcats had chances to score, but the Tigers were always there, slamming the door on every opportunity. Thats what we want every week, defensive tackle Willie Jernigan said of the teams first shutout of the year. We got to work hard in practice for it. We know we can do it, got to put our mind to it. We want zero on the scoreboard every week. Columbias defense held up long enough for the offense to find a groove on its first scoring drive late in the opening quarter. Bobby Fultons 5-yard touchdown catch, his first of two scores on the night, got the Tigers on the scoreboard. The struggles werent over, though, Smith was intercepted on the next drive by Florida commit Trent Whittemore. Columbia shook off its lone turnover of the night and returned to the end zone two more times before halftime thanks to Kylen Callum. The junior running back scored both his touchdowns in the final six minutes of the half giving his team a 18-0 lead. We cant have anymore slow starts like this, Smith said of the offensive errors. Next week we got Lee, then Madison, then Trinity Christian. We got to roll. Columbias defense anchored the team in the second half as it constantly disrupted Buchholzs veteran offense. Whittemore was held to just 51 total yards after halftime which helped keep the Bobcats out of the end zone on Friday. Columbia held a comfortable 25-0 lead entering the fourth quarter after Fultons 27-yard touchdown catch with 46 seconds left in the third. Buchholz quarterback Cam Orth and the Bobcats were marching on the ensuing drive, until Shyheim Brown took an interception 72 yards the opposite way to give Columbia a fifth touchdown. Our defensive line was outstanding and our [defensive backs] came to play, defensive end Levontae Camiel said. Linebackers, everybody, had to step up to the plate when the offense wasnt moving. It was a team effort. We had to pick ourselves up in the second half. Its really great to have a shutout. Columbia sealed its second straight win over Buchholz on a 42-yard touchdown run by Marquez Bell, who finished with a game-high 141 yards on just four catches. The Tigers have made it look easy through their first three games, having already accumulated 132 combined points. Columbias biggest test awaits this week as Robert E. Lee comes to Lake City for Fridays District 2-7A opener. With huge implications on the line, the Tigers hope to snap a threegame losing streak to the Generals and put themselves in good position to host playoff games in November. Were going to clock in on Monday, and its about business, Allen said. These are the weeks that decide whether youre in the playoffs or not. You dont want it in the hands of [playoff] points. You want to take care of business and be district champs at the end of 11 weeks. So its a different mindset. Itll be militaristic this week with them so were focused and locked in. Well punch the clock Monday, from 8:30 when school starts to 7:30 when we leave, its business because this is district week. INJURY UPDATE: Columbia linebacker Ethan Umstead (ankle) and safety Brandon Scott (ankle) are both expected to be back for this weeks district opener after missing Fridays game against Buchholz. Linebacker Marlon Pollock, who also was out Friday night, could return this week too as he recovers from an ankle injury. GATOR TRIP: Columbia wide receivers TJ Jones (2019) and Marquez Bell (2020) traveled to the University of Florida this weekend for an unofficial visit. Jones made his second trip in two weeks after visiting the school last weekend. While both are being recruited by the Gators, Jones is the only one who currently holds an offer.

COURTESY Columbias AJ Kihei runs at the UNF Invitational on Saturday. they can trust their teammates to pick them up. It draws me to one conclusion: theyre ready to face Robert E. Lee. I say that, not based off production (which offensively couldve been much more), but more so how the team responded when things didnt go so well. Bad snaps and missed assignments happened Friday night and Im sure it wont be the last time. While the scoreboard looks like a cakewalk, the Tigers know that all the events that transpired during the game werent sweet. After cruising through the first two games, this years Columbia team got its first glimpse to how hairy things can get. The Tigers offense eventually sparked thanks to the momentum set by the defense. After an impressive outing versus Suwannee last week, the defense followed up with a lights out performance Friday night. Columbias offense has all the glitz, but the defense is the driving force behind the magic. If there was any more doubt before, shouldnt be anymore, the Tigers have more than just a strong offense. We have an explosive offense that should be able to score, but when it sputters, its good to know youre going to get the ball back and have another opportunity, coach Brian Allen told me. Some nights its going to be like that. And those sort of nights could be fast approaching. It wasnt always pretty but the job was done, regardless a shutout just as the Tigers expected. Columbia was balanced, but more importantly, remained mentally tough in the face of adversity. The schedule doesnt get any easier for the Tigers, with games pegged against Madison County, Trinity Christian and Bolles. But it all kicks off with the showdown this week between Columbia and Lee. The Tigers must keep that same bend dont break mentality against the defending District 2-7A champs. And after showing that theyre a complete team this past week, theres no reason why they cant take back the crown. I hope the Generals are prepped, because the Tigers are ready for war.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 915, 2018When is the best time to cash in those EE bonds?Dear Dave, I have about $36,000 in debt, not including my house. Of that amount, $30,000 is a truck thats worth about what I owe on it, and the other $6,000 is student loan debt. I make $50,000 a year. I also have 24 EE bonds that were gifted to me that havent fully matured. Right now, theyre worth a combined $12,500. Should I cash those in, and use the money to pay off some of my debt, or let them fully mature before cashing them in? Also, are there any tax ramifications from cashing them in? Patrick Dear Patrick, They might be taxed, but it wont be much to worry about. EE bonds make less than one percent, so you havent really earned much. Never buy those things, man. Theyre a horrible investment, with an even worse rate of return. Im glad youre working out a plan and moving toward getting out of debt. A $30,000 truck doesnt work with a $50,000 income. So, cash in the bonds immediately, sell the truck, and use some of the money from the EE bonds to pay off the school loans. Then, find yourself a cheap, little truck that will get you around for a few years. You can do this, Patrick. I want you to have a nice truck one day, but I dont want that truck to be a burden. This ones got you by the throat, and youre feeling it, arent you? Drive like no one else for a little while now, so that later you can really drive like no one else! Dave Dear Dave, Where in the Baby Steps does identity theft protection fall? Should we cover the kids, too, or only the adults in our household? Laura Dear Laura, Everyone needs identity theft protection. Unless youre one of these folks who have gone completely off the grid, someone out there probably has a few of your numbers. Between sloppiness on the part of consumers, and the massive data breaches that have occurred in the last few years, almost everyone has experienced, or will experience, some sort of identity theft. Unfortunately, this is todays world. I dont really consider identity theft protection part of the Baby Steps. Its like life insurance or car insurance, in that its something almost everyone needs. Things like that should just be part of your budget every month. Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. predictable cash flows, for example, can manage debt better than retailers or manufacturers whose cash flows can fluctuate widely. (It can be helpful to compare a companys debt level with those of its competitors.) Industry aside, compare a companys debt load to its cash what it currently has on its balance sheet, and what it can generate. Ideally, it will be able to pay any debt due in the next year (often referred to as short-term debt) with cash on hand and make its interest payments many times over with its free cash flow. (You can find figures for assets, cash flow, debt and more at sites such as morningstar.com and finance.yahoo.com, which offer data from companies financial statements.) Look for other warning signs, too. Is its pension plan underfunded? Is its industry vulnerable to rapid obsolescence? Is it under investigation for any irregularities? Is the company buying back shares at inflated prices with money it should be using in better ways? Is it paying dividends when it cant afford to? Stay away from companies that appear to be candidates for bankruptcy court.A Towering Portfolio CandidateUsage of cellphones and smartphones is still growing rapidly around the world. So telecom companies need to keep adding broadcast equipment to handle the traffic, and that means more equipment on structures like cell towers and rooftop spires. If youd like to profit from this scenario, consider American Tower (NYSE: AMT), with a dividend recently yielding 2.1 percent. Its a real estate investment trust (REIT) thats one of the worlds largest owners of towers and other structures designed to hold telecommunications equipment. As telecom companies would generally rather not have to spend money building towers or buying land, American Tower can lease space to multiple clients on the same structure. This has been a lucrative arrangement, as the company has grown its bottom line by an average of 16 percent annually over the past decade. Of American Towers 170,000 or so communication sites, only 40,000 of them are in the U.S. Management is investing heavily in fast-growing markets such as India and Nigeria, where wireless data usage has been increasing at a far faster rate than in the U.S. Also, as more mature wireless networks start the commercial rollout of 5G, telecom companies will likely be renting more space on existing infrastructure. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended American Tower and has the following options on it: short October 2018 $135 calls and long January 2019 $80 calls.) rffDividend PowerI retired from a bank in Mississippi in 1990 with some shares of the companys stock. I added a little more money to it and let it ride. After less than a decade, the mere $175 that Id invested had grown to be worth more than $1,800, counting dividends received. The dumbest thing I did was not buying more stock early on! M.H., Gulfport, Mississippi The Fool Responds: Your story illustrates the power of reinvesting dividends. When many investors receive dividends from their investments, they take them out in cash. Or they might just leave the cash in their brokerage account. A more effective wealthbuilding strategy is to have your dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of the companys stock. Some brokerages will do that for you, and with ones that dont, you can simply take the cash that accumulates in your account and, on your own, buy shares of the same stock or stock in even more promising companies. Not every investment will do as well as yours did over a few years, of course you reaped the equivalent of annual returns of more than 70 percent! The stock markets average annual return is closer to 10 percent. Youre right, though investing meaningful sums early and letting them grow for decades is a great way to build a substantial nest egg for your retirement. Castles, Companies Need MoatsQWhat does a moat refer to in business-speak? P.O., Walnut Creek, CaliforniaAJust as with a castle, if a company has a wide moat, it will be hard for any enemies to attack it. Thus, a moat refers to the sustainable competitive advantages a company may have that can protect its market position and defend against competitors or would-be competitors. Competitive advantages can include patents, a strong brand, economies of scale, barriers to entry, and high switching costs. Think of Apple as an example. Its strong brand attracts many customers who associate it with high quality and good design, and once theyre in the Apple environment, it can seem like too much of a pain to switch out of it. Boeing, meanwhile, encounters few new competitors because its so costly to start manufacturing aircraft.***QWhat is the U.S. inflation rate, and how does it compare to that of other countries? S.S., Greenville, North CarolinaAThe United States inflation rate was recently about 2.5 percent, according to the International Monetary Fund, below the long-termaverage of about 3 percent per year. Meanwhile, it was 0.7 percent in Switzerland, 1.1 percent in Japan, 2.5 percent in China, 2.7 percent in the United Kingdom, 2.8 percent in Russia, 5 percent in India, 11.4 percent in Turkey, 22.7 percent in Argentina and 13,864.6 percent in Venezuela. That Venezuelan rate reflects the phenomenon of hyperinflation, when inflation is occurring at rates higher than about 50 percent monthly. When prices rise that quickly, the money that people have in their pockets and savings accounts rapidly loses its value and the economy is dangerously destabilized. Hyperinflation, often triggered by governments printing too much money, occurred in Germany after World War I and more recently in Zimbabwe.Want more information about stocks?

You can save yourself a lot of heartache and dollars by learning to spot warning signs among your holdings. A company goes bankrupt when it runs out of the cash it needs to operate. To assess a companys bankruptcy risk, start with its debt load. Borrowed money can be helpful to a company, boosting returns in good times. But it can also amplify risk in bad times. A debt-laden company suddenly facing declining sales can cut its dividend but it still has to make its interest payments, and eventually its principal repayment. Worse still, when the economy goes south, access to additional financing can be costly or not available at all. The amount of debt a company can handle is influenced by its industry.

Three questions to ask before accepting that job offerMany people view their job search as an opportunity to prove their worth to potential employers. Yet, it is important to keep in mind that finding the perfect match goes both ways, and the right job needs to work for you, too especially in todays economy where employers need to work hard to make their job offers stand out. For greater job satisfaction, be sure to evaluate the full offer, including salary and bonus structure, paid time off, relocation assistance, voluntary benefits like those offered by Aflac and health care benefits. Plus, dont forget to get the following questions answered before accepting any job offer. 1. Does this company offer opportunities for professional growth? Some positions are designated as a path for growth, and others are not. Find out if yours has a clear pathway for promotion or if it is a dead-end. You may also wish to inquire about the availability of development opportunities, like webinars and off-site training sessions, as well as get a sense about whether or not your supervisor is able and willing to take on a mentorship role. 2. How will this employer support my long-term financial success? Your financial wellness is determined by more than just your salary. Benefits matter a great deal, too, and these days, they may go far beyond the standard offerings. Insurers like Aflac now provide many employers with offerings called value-added services, which can range from assisting employees and their families with college planning and financing to making sure employees are taking care of their financial and legal wellness. Easy-to-use online resources, tutorials and digital tools can help employees reach financial and legal goals. All that said, you might not want to limit your decision to the prospect of generous take home pay alone. 3. What is in it for my family? Does your potential employer offer any services or benefits that can improve the lives of your family members? For example, do health benefits include roundthe-clock access to telemedicine? Are there health advocacy services offered to help employees and their families reduce stress over navigating the heath care environment? These are the items that can make or break that job offer. These are also services that you could suggest to your current employer as an option to help keep talent happy, productive and at the company. -StatePoint Sergey Nivens/stock.Adobe.comOpportunities to grow, or climb the corporate ladder, are important to consider in accepting a job offer.
WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 915, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3CUS hiring picked up in AugustThe Associated PressThe pace of hiring in the United States quickened in August, and wages grew at their fastest pace in nine years evidence that employers remain confident despite the Trump administrations ongoing conflicts with its trading partners. The economy added a strong 201,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate stayed at 3.9 percent, near an 18-year low, the government said Friday in its monthly jobs report. Taken as a whole, the data pointed to a job market that remains resilient even after nearly a decade of economic growth the second-longest such stretch in U.S. history and even with tariffs and counter-tariffs on imports and exports looming over U.S. employers that rely on global trade. The economy is expanding at a healthy pace, fueled by tax cuts, confident consumers, greater business investment in equipment and more government spending. Growth reached 4.2 percent at an annual rate in the April-June quarter, the fastest pace in four years. I view this as the strongest job market in a generation, Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor, a career website. Even while reporting a robust job gain for August, the Labor Department revised sharply down its estimate of hiring in June and July. The government now says employers added 50,000 fewer jobs in those two months combined than it had previously estimated. But the 201,000 job gain in August was nearly equal to the average gain of 196,000 over the prior 12 months, evidence of how consistent job growth remains. Average hourly pay jumped 0.4 percent in August and increased 2.9 percent compared with a year earlier. Thats the fastest annual gain since June 2009, when the Great Recession ended. Still, rising inflation, which also reached 2.9 percent in July from a year earlier, has offset that gain. Yet most economists said they saw the pay increase as an encour aging sign that the low unemployment rate is compelling more employers to raise pay in order to compete successfully for workers. It looks like were finally seeing that acceleration in wage growth that weve been waiting for, said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC Financial Services. Its good news for workers paychecks, its good news for consumers and its good news for the overall economy. The rising wage and jobs data make it a near-certainty that the Federal Reserve will raise short-term interest rates when it meets later this month, economists said. Most Fed watchers also expect another rate hike in December and perhaps two more next year. The prospect of higher borrowing costs as well as bigger paychecks, which can cut into corporate profits appeared to hold back the stock market Friday. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 104 points in mid-day trading. Jason Mazzarone, chief executive of SoBol, a restaurant chain that sells a variety of acai bowls, says he is paying workers more, mostly because of higher minimum wage laws in New York and other states where his 26-store chain operates. He has also raised pay for other workers who were already earning more than the minimum. On New Yorks Long Island, for example, where many of his outlets are located, the minimum wage will reach $12 an hour by years end. For shift managers now making $16 an hour, Mazzarone said, their pay has to go up too. The Trump administration has imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum as well as on $50 billion of goods from China. U.S. companies across a range of industries have expressed alarm about those import taxes and about counter-tariffs that other nations have imposed on U.S. exports. The White House has also threatened to hit China with higher taxes on $200 billion more of Chinese goods. Yet so far, there are few signs that those concerns have affected overall hiring. Manufacturers cut 3,000 jobs last month, the first time they have cut jobs in about a year. Factories have taken the most direct hit from higher tariffs, with automakers, aerospace, and machinery companies absorbing higher steel and aluminum costs. Automakers accounted for all the losses, cutting nearly 5,000 jobs. Still, those losses might not fully reflect trade disruptions. Automakers typically retool their factories for new model year cars over the summer, which can temporarily distort the job figures. Fridays jobs report showed that professional and business services, a category that includes both higher-paying fields such as engineering and accounting and lower-paying temp jobs, led Augusts job growth with 53,000 added positions. Health care providers added 33,000 and transportation and warehousing companies 20,200, the most in nearly a year. Manufacturing shed 3,000 jobs, its worst showing in more than a year. Retailers cut 6,000 positions, a surprising drop given reports of strong sales by such leading retailers as Target, Walmart and Best Buy. Most analysts have forecast that the economy will expand at an annual pace of at least 3 percent in the current July-September quarter. For the full year, the economy is on track to grow 3 percent for the first time since 2005. Consumer confidence rose in August to its highest level in nearly 18 years. Most Americans feel that jobs are widely available and expect the economy to remain healthy in the coming months, according to the Conference Boards consumer confidence survey. In August, factories expanded at their quickest pace in 14 years, according to a survey of purchasing managers. A manufacturing index compiled by a trade group reached its highest point since 2004. Not all the economic news has been positive. Higher mortgage rates and years of price increases are slowing the housing market. Sales of existing homes dropped in July for a fourth straight month. Many economists also worry that President Donald Trump will soon follow through on a threat to impose tariffs of up to 25 percent on $200 billion of imports from China. That would be in addition to $50 billion in duties already imposed. Pay surged most in nine years.COURTESYHealthcare jobs saw significant growth in August, said a federal jobs report released on Friday. British Airways travelers credit card details hackedThe Associated Press Hackers obtained the credit card details of some 380,000 British Airways travelers during a two-week data breach this summer that leaves the customers vulnerable to financial fraud, the airline says. BAs CEO, Alex Cruz, said Friday that enough data was stolen to allow criminals to use credit card information for illicit purposes, and that police are investigating. We know that the information that has been stolen is name, address, email address, credit card information; that would be credit card number, expiration date and the three-letter code in the back of the credit card, he told the BBC. He added that no passport data had been obtained in what he called a very sophisticated, malicious criminal attack. It advises people to contact their bank or credit card company if they used the airlines website and mobile app to make or change a booking between 10:58 p.m. London time on Aug. 21 and 9:45 p.m. London time on Sept. 5. The recommendation does not apply to customers who bought tickets or changed reservations outside those times. The airline promised to reimburse any financial losses suffered by customers directly because of the theft of this data. Consumer advice website MoneySavingExpert says affected customers should first seek advice from their bank, then monitor bank and credit card statements closely for signs of possible fraudulent activity. It also warns of possible phishing scams in which hackers would try to trick affected consumers into revealing personal information like pincodes or banking passwords. Some angry travelers complained to Britains Press Association that they had already noted bogus activity on credit cards that had been used to make British Airways bookings during the time when the breach was undetected. The hack once again puts the spotlight on the strength of the IT systems at major companies as they expand their digital services. British Airways experienced an IT-related crisis in May last year when roughly 75,000 passengers were stranded after the airline cancelled more than 700 flights over three days because of system problems. In the U.S., Delta Airlines said in April that payment-card information for several hundred thousand customers could have been exposed by a malware breach months earlier. The same breach also hit Sears Holdings Corp., which operates Kmart stores.Disney workers approve new contract raising minimum wageThe Associated PressThousands of Walt Disney World workers on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a new contract that increases the starting minimum wage to $15 an hour over the next three years while enabling Disney to use more part-time workers and require new workers to stay in their positions longer before transferring. Scores of union workers chanted Union! Union! and Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, we got a raise! as they waited for the votes to be counted at a hotel in the heart of Orlandos tourism district. We got a fair deal, Matt Hollis, who leads a coalition of six unions, told the workers after the vote was counted. Union officials said the new contract would have an impact outside of Walt Disney World as other non-unionized businesses in central Floridas low-wage service economy compete for tourism workers in a tight job market. The contract covers more than half of the 70,000 workers at Disney World, the largest single-site employer in the United States. Those workers include costumed characters, bus drivers, launderers, retail workers, monorail drivers, custodians, housekeepers, servers, cooks, florists, makeup artists and lifeguards. The way I feel is we won this for our members at Disney but we also won this for the ride operator at Universal Studios who doesnt have a union, said Eric Clinton, president of Unite Here Local 362, one of the six unions that represents 38,000 workers covered by the contract. This affects Hyatt, Hilton. They are going to have to raise wages to compete with others. This is 38,000 people. This isnt a small amount. Besides raising the starting minimum wage almost 50 percent to $15 an hour in three years, the new four-year contract would raise wages for existing workers by at least $4.75 an hour by October 2021. Each Florida worker also will receive a $1,000 bonus that Disney had paid to other employees after last years tax cut by Congress. Those bonuses were withheld during the contract negotiations. Our 50 percent wage increase will have a real, meaningful impact on our cast and their families and is part of our commitment to the thousands of cast members who make magic for our guests each and every day, said George Kalogridis, president of Walt Disney World Resort. Increasing wages for cast members represents a significant investment in central Florida and will provide a powerful boost to the local economy. The new contract expands anti-discrimination protections to include gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, military or veteran status and genetic information. In return for the higher wages, the coalition of unions, known as the Service Trades Council Union, agreed to allow Disney to use more part-time workers. Under the old contract, 35 percent of the union workforce can be part-timers, but that was raised to 38 percent in the new deal, although Disney doesnt currently reach its limit on part-timers. New hires also will have to wait longer to switch jobs under the new deal. The old contract allowed for a transfer after six months, but that changed to a year under the new contract. The new contract also allows Disney the ability to expand the probationary period for some new workers from three months to six months. Services set for Amway founder, Magic owner DeVosThe Associated PressA private funeral service has been scheduled for billionaire Richard DeVos, the co-founder of direct-selling giant Amway, owner of the NBAs Orlando Magic and father-in-law of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Details of next Thursdays invitation-only services at LaGrave Avenue Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids were announced Friday, a day after his death. Others will be able to watch a simulcast at the citys DeVos Place convention center. Family spokesman Nick Wasmiller has said DeVos died at his western Michigan home due to complications from an infection. He was 92. DeVos was born in Grand Rapids. He served as Amways president until 1993 and bought the Magic in 1991. We got a fair deal. Matt Hollis, labor organizer

Im thinking well be able to open by the third week of September by the latest, he said. The new location, 281 SW State Road 247, just north of the Lake City Bowl facility, will be the third SER location to open in Columbia County. They also have dealerships at S&S Mowers on State Road 47 and the companys original location at 162 SW Spencer Ct., Suite 103. When we get this location opened up, the site on State Road 47 near Super 8 (162 SW Spencer Ct., Suite 103) is just going to become a mechanic shop and space we use for storage and stuff, Willems said. It wont be a retail location anymore. It will be by appointment only. This new site is going to replace that. Willems said he and his daughters, the owners, decided to build an equipment rental business because they felt there was a need for this type of business in Columbia County. I waited two years from the time RSC left in and Lake City didnt have anything (equipment rental businesses), he said. There is definitely a need for an equipment rental company. When completed the SER site on State Road 247 will have a black top, asphalt area with two containers storing a variety of equipment. Between the containers, one which will serve as the business office, a lawn area Â will ser ve as storage space for other pieces of equipment. It will just be our visible equipment yard, Willems said. He added theyve been working on the project to get the new location up and going since October 2017 and theyre looking forward to the new opportunities. Im looking forward to increased sales, he said. Were hoping for a lot more exposure. Its the reason we put this location. There is a lot more traffic and were going to get a lot more customers from Home Depot. There is a lot more traffic here.

Zoes Kitchen a Gainesville treasureIm back! Im returning after taking the month of August off to vacation, chill and just enjoy my life. During that time Rosemary Coleman and I had lunch at Zoes Kitchen in Gainesville. It reminded me of a visit I had made there with her sister, Sandra Foreman, a couple of years ago. This visit, we both ordered chicken kabobs and shared an order of hummus. As good as always. I decided to resurrect the old Taste Buddies column since I know I have new readers that may have missed the review and others who may have forgotten. The same manager, Thaddeus Kendrick was there that day. He remembered me and my review and was his same courteous and congenial self. Previous review is below and I hope youll add this to your restaurant list to try when in Gainesville. I noticed a number of new items on the menu and there are a few small price changes. Its still all the wonderful Mediterranean ingredients and flavors.Zoes KitchenBefore Christmas Sandra Foreman and I made a trip to Hobby Lobby for essentials. It was time for lunch and we tried a place neither of us had been, Zoes Kitchen. Located on Archer Road, Ive seen it for years but never ventured in. As we walked in I was struck by the inviting, California style dcor with its warm colors of orange, pumpkin and celery green. This visit started with a good feeling. You place your order and it is then brought to your table. The staff was extremely helpful in explaining various menu items. While we waited I looked around and saw a most delicious looking steak kabob and thought that I should have ordered that. Next time I will. Our order came starting with our Hummus Trio ($6.89). Basil pesto, red pepper and classic hummus served with pita bread, pita chips, cucumbers, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes were perfect and more than enough for the two of us to share. Loved them all but the red pepper was my favorite. I chose the Mediterranean Tuna Pita ($7.59) for my lunch. It was a pita stuffed with #1 Albacore tuna, capers, red onions, olives, lettuce and tomato. I chose the roasted vegetables as my side order and they were delicious mixed vegetables with light seasoning. I am one of those people that loves a good tuna salad. In fact, I make it a lot for my lunch. Mine is the usual: tuna, onions, pickles, boiled egg, seasoning and mayonnaise. I liked the Mediterranean flavors, for a change. I especially like red onions, olives and capers so I may kick mine up a notch next time I make it. Sandra ordered the Greek Chicken Pita ($7.79) which was marinated and grilled thin sliced chicken with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, feta cheese, mixed greens tossed with Greek dressing and all served warm. Her side was a fresh fruit cup. I tasted hers and it was also delicious. Seems we lucked out with our restaurant choice and our food choices. Added note: beer and wine are available. The word ZOE in Greek means Life. Zoe Cassimus was born in the Mediterranean area and raised in the South. She began in a lunch shop in Montgomery, Alabama 22 years ago. Her restaurant foods are from family recipes and from her simple fresh from the garden sensibility which inspires the menu choices. Food is delivered fresh daily, then hand washed and cut so that everything can be made from scratch. Grilling is the predominate method of cooking their Mediterranean inspired food.

I took a short hiatus from writing the column over the last half of the summer. I also didnt travel much, other than a couple of Real Estate related trips. But I have been doing A LOT of planning!! I attended a leadership conference in Chicago in August. I am the current President-Elect for the Lake City Board of Realtors and will take over duties as the President next year. With these positions comes some additional travel (darn!). I convinced Scott to come with me since hed never been to Chicago. We flew up the weekend before my training started and used our timeshare to stay at the Hotel Blake. I got us tickets to a Cubs game, which he really enjoyed. And we spent some time walking around the city and taking in a band at the Miller Lite Beer Garden at the Chicago Pier. When he left, I flew my Mom up for her birthday, since Id be missing it. She was my plus one for my activities outside of the training I had scheduled. I was also able to spend some of my free time with her and took her on the architectural boat tour, to the Chicago 360 (formerly the John Hancock Building) to see the views from the Signature room, and rode the Big Bus tour around the city. We also ate some Chicago Deep Dish pizza. My favorite was from Ginos East. It was a busy five days. I had all of 12 hours from returning home from Chicago before I repacked and drove to Orlando for another five days for the Florida Realtors Convention and Meetings. As much as I like to go, I really like to come home too. The planning I mentioned includes my annual road trip with Sue. We are hitting the Southwestern states to visit some National Parks and do some hiking. Im already working on a big trip to celebrate Scott and my 25th wedding anniversary next spring. We have two friends with 50th Birthday trips weve not only been invited to, but i was asked to help plan one so that its a surprise. We are headed back to Nashville for Scotts birthday and taking my niece and her boyfriend for their birthdays this year. There are more work-related trips too. I have the National Association of Realtors Convention in Boston coming up. And they just announced that Tim McGraw will be our entertainment at the RE/MAX convention in Vegas next year that I need to put on my calendar. I usually wait to see who the entertainment is before I commit myself. This year as an added bonus is that Gwen Stefani is scheduled for a show that same week while doing her residency at Planet Hollywood and weve already bought our tickets. Thankfully, I have some flexibility with my job and I have a lot of hotel and credit card points and SkyMiles saved up for these trips. Otherwise, I dont know how I could do it all. Not to mention, my wonderful assistant, Pam, who holds down the fort at work when Im out. I can do a lot from the road with my lap top and phone and work everyday that Im gone taking care of business. Think of them as working vacations and work trips because that is the reality; but I wouldnt change it for anything.

Look at whats being said and offered before you make a snap decision that could leave you at a loss. Bide your time, ask questions and consider every angle before you say yea or nay. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take a stance and follow through. Trust in your ability to know whats best for yourself. Personal relationships will take a favorable turn if you share your concerns and intentions, as well as a romantic gesture. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Play it safe. Check every detail and verify what youve been told. Its better to be safe than sorry when dealing with settlements, joint finances or feelings. Dont neglect your responsibilities or your loved ones. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Spend more time with friends and family. Discuss your plans and see who is interested in tagging along. Dont feel you have to pay for others. You cannot buy love. Offer kindness and understanding; youll win respect and affection. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look at what you can do to make personal and physical improvements at home. Whether its doing something nice for someone you love or moving things around to clear a space for one of your pursuits, it will be time well spent. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look for any opportunity to make a move. Changing things up a bit will inspire you to be more adventuresome and to share your feelings, intentions and plans with someone special. Make romance and physical improvements priorities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Think twice before making a move. Listen carefully to whats being said or offered. If someone shows anger or tends to be pushy, keep your distance. Dont take part in gossip or share private information about someone else. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take part in a social event or lend a helping hand. What you do for others and how you interact will open up a window of opportunity. Traveling, sharing creative ideas and collaborating with unusual individuals will spark your imagination. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll come up against someone with ulterior motives. Dont be gullible or too eager to please. A story that sounds magnificent is probably fabricated. A false sense of security will result if you allow someone to manipulate you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Buying and selling, a joint venture or making a move or change that will boost your assets or lower your overhead should be considered. An important relationship should be highlighted and changes should be implemented that will bring you closer together. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont get all worked up over something you have no control over. Settle down and use common sense to come up with a solution that will help you deal with anyone or anything thats troubling you. Be good to yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Youll have all sorts of options to consider. Its time to bring about change and to focus on getting ahead financially. A physical change to your appearance will give you the confidence you need to forge ahead with your plans. Daughters bratty behavior drives her mother to tearsDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com DEAR ABBY: I recently traveled to Germany to help my 19-year-old daughter settle in for her semester of study abroad. I was in tears the entire trip home, not because I was sad to leave her, but because she kept lashing out at me for anything from using a cotton swab to following proper directions exiting the train, to asking simple -but, in her mind, ridiculous -questions. This is not new behavior. Her brother has also observed her overreactive behavior to minor things. I treated her and her roommate to dinners out and stocked her apartment with groceries, in addition to making significant financial contributions toward her tuition. Im also splitting the cost of her monthly rent with her dad. I feel hurt, like she regards me as only an ATM. She wouldnt even let me use her European electrical adapter to charge my phone before leaving for the airport. Should I convey how hurt I feel and, if so, what are your suggestions? I feel if I have a phone conversation, she will sigh, tell me she doesnt have time for this or accuse me of being a killjoy. If I put it in a letter, Ill feel like a coward, but it will allow me to express my feelings without interruption or protest. -UNAPPRECIATED IN VERMONT DEAR UNAPPRECIATED: Frankly, Im surprised you werent crying because you recognized your part in creating the self-entitled monster your daughter has become. You should have put a stop to it when she first started overreacting with rude, insensitive and ungrateful behavior. By all means write her a letter, and when you do, tell her she behaved shamefully, it was hurtful, and that you will no longer tolerate it. Be sure she understands she will not get another penny until you receive an apology and assurances that you wont be subjected to that kind of abuse again. Continue practicing tough love until you see real changes in your daughters attitude. Its the only kind of language she will understand. DEAR ABBY: After 23 years together, my wife, after spending time with her grown children, brought home photos of her deceased former husband. The photos that bother me are the ones in which they are holding hands. He was the stepfather to her now-middle-aged children. They had 19 years together, and he had a daughter who became my wifes stepdaughter. The stepdaughter post ed on social media that she missed her dad. My wife expressed the same feelings and said she thinks about him, too. When my wife posted those sentiments on the internet, everyone could read it. Those pictures and feelings bother me. Am I wrong for being angry about this? -UPSET IN CALIFORNIA DEAR UPSET: Its time to grow up and accept that your wife was married -I presume happily -before her former husbands death. If you want a healthy marriage, stop competing with a dead man. For her to express solidarity with her former stepdaughter was no reflection on her love for or her marriage to you. Your feelings are not all that unusual, but you are wrong to be angry. If you need reassurance, ask your wife for it, and Im sure shell give it to you. Because she once loved another man doesnt mean she doesnt love you.

4D SUNDA Y, SEPTEMBER 9, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER Three tips on the best way to raise a drug-free childBy the time teens graduate from high school, about 45 percent will have tried marijuana, according the National Institute on Drug Abuse. And while marijuana is one of the most used substances among teenagers, it is not the only one of concern today. The drug epidemic is an expansive and very real public health crisis and families are on the front line when it comes to getting prevention and recovery efforts underway. Here are three steps parents can take to help keep their kids safe. 1. Communicate. The best line of defense is an open relationship with your children that encourages a healthy dialogue about the dangers of drug use in terms they can understand. Paired with consequences that will resonate, like the taking away of freedoms and valued items, discussions should include talking openly about the effects of drugs like marijuana, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine on a users health and wellness. Be available and willing to listen to whatever your children have to say without interrupting or losing your composure, ensuring a healthy conversation where they feel their voices are being heard. 2. Have a Plan and Offer Privileges and Incentives. In the home, prescription drugs such as opioids and stimulants should be locked away safely, accessible only to the person to whom theyre prescribed. If those drugs are prescribed to your child, monitor use of the medication, and keep it stored in your bathroom rather than your childs. Parents who suspect their child may be facing peer pressure or abusing drugs should consider using a home drug test. Your drug prevention plan may also include a system of rewards for passing home drug tests, including car privileges and other tangible incentives. 3. Strategize Saying No. Strategize with your children on how to say no when pressured to use drugs, while also reinforcing the why. Reasons to say no can be anything from not wanting to harm ones grades, health or athletic potential, or even just the fact that you implement home drug testing. To that end, consider home drug testing as a way to take the pressure off your children, giving them an easy out in social situations where drugs are introduced, while saving face with peers. You can even give them a line to use on their friends, such as, I cant, my parents are crazy and they drug test me! More tips to help raise drugfree kids can be found at notmykid.org. Drug use is a challenging issue to navigate, but with a few preventative actions and an open discourse, you can foster a healthy, drug-free environment for your family. -StatePoint daisy daisy/stock.Adobe.comTaking a proactive approach to teaching kids about the dangers of drugs is important. From penny press to Snapchat: Parents fret through the agesThe Associated Press When Stephen Dennis was raising his two sons in the 1980s, he never heard the phrase screen time, nor did he worry much about the hours his kids spent with technology. When he bought an Apple II Plus computer, he considered it an investment in their future and encouraged them to use it as much as possible. Boy, have things changed with his grandkids and their phones and their Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter. It almost seems like an addiction, said Dennis, a retired homebuilder who lives in Bellevue, Washington. In the old days you had a computer and you had a TV and you had a phone but none of them were linked to the outside world but the phone. You didnt have this omnipresence of technology. Todays grandparents may have fond memories of the good old days, but history tells us that adults have worried about their kids fascination with new-fangled entertainment and technology since the days of dime novels, radio, the first comic books and rock n roll. This whole idea that we even worry about what kids are doing is pretty much a 20th century thing, said Katie Foss, a media studies professor at Middle Tennessee State University. But when it comes to screen time, she added, all we are doing is reinventing the same concern we were having back in the s. True, the anxieties these days seem particularly acute as, of course, they always have. Smartphones have a highly customized, 24/7 presence in our lives that feeds parental fears of antisocial behavior and stranger danger. What hasnt changed, though, is a general parental dread of what kids are doing out of sight. In previous generations, this often meant kids wandering around on their own or sneaking out at night to drink. These days, it might mean hiding in their bedroom, chatting with strangers online. Less than a century ago, the radio sparked similar fears. The radio seems to find parents more helpless than did the funnies, the automobile, the movies and other earlier invaders of the home, because it can not be locked out or the children locked in, Sidonie Matsner Gruenberg, director of the Child Study Association of America, told The Washington Post in 1931. She added that the biggest worry radio gave parents was how it interfered with other interests conversation, music practice, group games and reading. In the early 1930s a group of mothers from Scarsdale, New York, pushed radio broadcasters to change programs they thought were too overstimulating, frightening and emotionally overwhelming for kids, said Margaret Cassidy, a media historian at Adelphi University in New York who authored a chronicle of American kids and media. Called the Scarsdale Moms, their activism led the National Association of Broadcasters to come up with a code of ethics around childrens programming in which they pledged not to portray criminals as heroes and to refrain from glorifying greed, selfishness and disrespect for authority. Then television burst into the public consciousness with unrivaled speed. By 1955, more than half of all U.S. homes had a black and white set, according to Mitchell Stephens, a media historian at New York University. The hand-wringing started almost as quickly. A 1961 Stanford University study on 6,000 children, 2,000 parents and 100 teachers found that more than half of the kids studied watched adult programs such as Westerns, crime shows and shows that featured emotional problems. Researchers were aghast at the TV violence present even in childrens programming. By the end of that decade, Congress had authorized $1 million (about $7 million today) to study the effects of TV violence, prompting literally thousands of projects in subsequent years, Cassidy said. That eventually led the American Academy of Pediatrics to adopt, in 1984, its first recommendation that parents limit their kids exposure to technology. The medical association argued that television sent unrealistic messages around drugs and alcohol, could lead to obesity and might fuel violence. Fifteen years later, in 1999, it issued its now-infamous edict that kids under 2 should not watch any television at all. The spark for that decision was the British kids show Teletubbies, which featured cavorting humanoids with TVs embedded in their abdomens. But the odd TV-withinthe-TV-beings conceit of the show wasnt the problem it was the gibberish the Teletubbies directed at preverbal kids whom doctors thought should be learning to speak from their parents, said Donald Shifrin, a University of Washington pediatrician and former chair of the AAP committee that pushed for the recommendation. Video games presented a different challenge. Decades of study have failed to validate the most prevalent fear, that violent games encourage violent behavior. But from the moment the games emerged as a cultural force in the early 1980s, parents fretted about the way kids could lose themselves in games as simple and repetitive as Pac-Man, Asteroids and Space Invaders. Some cities sought to restrict the spread of arcades; Mesquite, Texas, for instance, insisted that the under-17 set required parental supervision Many parents imagined the arcades where many teenagers played video games as dens of vice, of illicit trade in drugs and sex, Michael Z. Newman, a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee media historian, wrote recently in Smithsonian This time, some experts were more sympathetic to kids. Games could relieve anxiety and fed the age-old desire of kids to be totally absorbed in an activity where they are out on an edge and cant think of anything else, Robert Millman, an addiction specialist at the New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center, told the New York Times in 1981. He cast them as benign alternatives to gambling and glue sniffing. Vegetarian options. After lunch we spoke with the Manager, Thaddeus Kendrick. He very graciously shared information with us. He said the most popular salad ordered was the Live Med Salad ($7.79) and it did sound good. Its made of thin ribbons of zucchini and squash, fresh spinach, farro, lupini beans, cherry tomatoes, red onions, parmesan cheese and tossed with Calabrian pepper dressing. The most popular grilled sandwich is the Rosemary ham & mozzarella Piadina ($8.29) which is an Italian flatbread sandwich with grilled ham, fresh mozzarella, mixed greens, Calabria pepper aioli and lemon vinaigrette. Yum! The Kabobs all sounded and looked delicious. There are several choices: Chicken, Steak, Shrimp, Veggie and Salmon. Thaddeus said the most frequently ordered kabob was the steak ($11.79). It comes with two kabobs, red bell pepper, onions, grilled potatoes and roasted vegetables. All sides are $2.19 and you can choose from braised white beans with fresh rosemary, fresh fruit, roasted vegetables, potato salad with baby reds and no mayo, rice pilaf, pasta salad with fresh basil & feta, marinated slaw with feta & scallions or a side Greek salad. Other entrees include Mediterranean chicken flat-grilled with caramelized onions, braised white beans, side Greek salad and pita bread ($9.29) or how about Chicken Orzo Pomodorina ($9.29) which is flat-grilled chicken, orzo pasta, Italian tomato sauce and a side Greek salad. The list goes on but I think you get it now. Lots of choices that are fresh, healthy and appealing. Another added plus from a visit to Zoes is the Fresh Take Tubs to Go. This would be a great stop on your way home to pick up items for dinner. You can choose between Classic Hummus, Basl Pesto Hummus, Red Pepper Hummus, Pimento Cheese, Fresh Fruit, Chicken Salad, Potato salad, pasta salad, marinated slaw and Mediterranean tuna. Tub prices range from $$6.99 to $8.99. Zoes also has House-Baked Cookies either chocolate chip or zesty lemon ($2.39) and Yayas HandMade Chocolate Cake ($2.59). They are made daily. Thaddeus insisted we must try the cake so he brought us a piece. It was chocolate cake covered in chocolate icing or ganache, not sure which it was but on my goodness, it would melt in your mouth for a chocolate overload. Yaya figured this one out just right. Zoes Kitchen was a good food experience. The fresh tastes and Mediterranean flavors with the added Southern hospitality made this a delightful meal.
