Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister said his office is obtaining copies of every absentee ballot cast in the race and will contact every absentee voter in the district, regardless of who they voted for. There was a significant number of absentee ballots in a race with under 700 votes, Siegmeister said. Incumbent Eugene Jefferson won with 360 votes to challenger Vanessa Georges 339.

Now Fort White teachers and students alike have another tool at their disposal for securing classroom doors in the event of a campus intruder. A teacher can just throw this hose on the door and it wont be able to open until they can get their keys to lock the door, said Becca Steele. The sleeve fits over the doors hydraulic hinge when closed, making it virtually impossible to open. Safety sleeves will soon be provided for nearly every room with a door that operates on a hydraulic hinge thanks to the Steele family and Columbia County Fire Rescue Fort White Station 46.COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterBecca Steele, pictured here demonstrating how the safety sleeve works, spear headed the local initiative with her husband, Michael Steele, a Gainesville fire chief.

By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comTwo shootings and one near miss in three days have kept local police wrapped up in investigations, and although two suspects have been recently identified all remain at large. Lake City Police identified the second shooting suspect of the week Friday afternoon, and now have a warrant out for the arrest of Charles Leonard Ponds, 38, of Lake City. Ponds, of the 500 block of NE Leon Street, faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in connection with a Wednesday morning incident. Two individuals narrowly escaped death at the intersection of NE Escambia St. and NE Calhoun Ave. after an argument erupted and Ponds pulled a gun, the press release said. Public Information Officer Mike Lee said calls were made to dispatchers around 10:40 a.m. of shots fired in the area. When officers arrived they found a man and woman who said they had been in a verbal altercation with Ponds before he opened fire, Lee said. As they ran from Ponds, he fired several shots ... none hit the victims as they fled the area, the release said. After officers gathered testimony from those at the scene Ponds was eventually identified as the suspect, the release said. Florida Department of Corrections records show Ponds is on active felony probation through June 2021 for theft and forgery charges he received in May. Columbia County Jail records show Ponds has been behind bars all but two years since 2010, and was most recently booked into jail May 25 for grand theft, counterfeiting and forgery charges. A second LCPD press release issued Friday regarding the third incident of the week, and the second on Wednesday, which occurred around 5:30 p.m., included a statement from the police chief. At this time it does not appear that this shooting is related to either of the previous incidents this week, Chief Argatha Gilmore said. We will continue to exhaust all leads in identifying the shooter and the motive, but encourage anyone with information to call us. One man was reportedly injured in the shooting at SE Putnam Ave. and SW Avalon St. The victim was said to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was transported by helicopter to UF Health Shands. He is currently in stable condition, according to the report. The suspect in that shooting is unknown, LCPD said. Police are asking for the publics help and said for anyone with information to investigator Garrett Register at (386) 758-5451 or call the anonymous tip line, (386) 719-2068.OBITUARIES 2A SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2018 STATE BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER 7a 1p 7p 1a 6a LAKE CITY ALMANAC SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the ar ea on a scale fr om 0 to 10+.

Thanks for reading.2 shootings, 1 near miss in 3 daysCompared to races in other city and county elections, the ratio of absen tee ballots to polling-place votes was unusually high, Siegmeister said. Jefferson won with 249 mail-in votes, 70 early votes and 41 election-day votes. George had 98 mail-in votes, 121 early votes and 120 election-day votes. In August, the State Attorneys Office launched an investigation after a District 10 voter filled a complaint alleging Betty Jefferson confronted her with an improperly obtained absentee ballot and asked her to vote for her husband, Eugene Jefferson. The complaint came from Gladnell Jackson, 73, whose great nephew, Sylvester Warren, is in a relationship with candidate George. Jackson alleges she was walking to her house when Betty Jefferson approached her on the street. They went back to Jeffersons vehicle, where the candidates wife pulled out an absentee ballot with the 73-year-olds name printed on it, Jackson alleges. Jefferson asked for a signature and a vote for her husband, Jackson alleges. Jackson has never requested an absentee ballot and always votes at her polling place, she previously told authorities and the Lake City Reporter. The absentee ballot was requested through a state-registered third party in May, the same time Jacksons voter registration was updated. The third party was identified by a number, 12-127 which Florida Department of State records identify as Betty Jefferson. The complaint originally went to the Lake City Police Department, which passed the case to the State Attorneys Office. So far, no formal complaints regarding the 2018 District 10 election have surfaced other than Jacksons. This is not the first time Betty Jefferson has faced these kinds of allegations. In 2013, Jefferson faced criminal charges for her role in her husbands 2010 re-election bid. She took a plea deal to avoid conviction for a total of 29 election fraud-related crimes, including 19 felony counts of illegally obtaining absentee ballots. Another woman, Linda Ivery, also faced charges and struck a similar deal. As part of the deal, Jefferson agreed to write apology letters to her victims. PROBEContinued From 1Ahours before an unrelated gang fight erupted in another building at the prison. The prison houses some of the most violent inmates in the state. A Department of Corrections spokesman says Mark had been serving a life sentence for a 1981 murder. Neither the corrections agency nor the Florida Department of Law Enforcement provided the name of the attacker. Two sources told the Herald that the cellmate became angry with Mark for pestering him.

Florence evacuees take in the townBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comEmblems of crescent moons over palmetto trees and illustrations of biplanes dotted the hotel parking lot off West U.S. Highway 90, pointing out the vehicle tags belonging to Hurricane Florence evacuees fleeing the Carolinas. The Lake City Holiday Inn on Friday afternoon had rented out more than a dozen rooms to guests from the Palmetto State and its sister to the north, the First in Flight State. Hardly any of them decided to stick around the property, unlike the crowds from South Florida that packed the main entrance and lobby last year while waiting out Hurricane Irmas wrath. With Irma, everyone was down here sort of watching the storm on TV, said the hotels general manager, Rod Butler. But down here, with these evacuees, theyre going about their day. Seeing what Lake City has to offer while theyre here, making the best of a bad situation. Lake City did not fully escape Irmas clutches, but was far enough out of Florences path that the North and South Carolina evacuees wanted to explore local restaurants, shops and springs when they started arriving Tuesday, Butler said. Theyve mostly asked the same question. What can we do while were here? Butler repeated. The hotel provided evacuees with copies of the Lake City Reporters Community Information Guide. Butler guessed the visitors from the Carolinas decided to hunker down in Lake City for the same reason visitors flock here the other 364 days of the year. Were the first significant destination when you cross that Georgia line, he said. Hotel manager Carrie Smith said shes heard groups make plans to shop at Lake City Mall, eat at Jessicas Bistro and grab a drink at Halpatter Brewing Company, which passed out flyers advertising a 20 percent discount for Florence evacuees. Some were looking for a way to take their mind off their worries. Most of them are pretty stressed, waiting to see what happens, Smith said. Others were trying to stay positive and think of the situation more like a retreat, she said. One couple had been on vacation in Boston when they heard about the storm. Instead of returning home to the Carolinas, they kept going south and ended up in Lake City. They ended up turning it into a longer vacation, Smith said. The couple planned to check out the live music at Halpatter on Friday night, she said. John Rohatsch was the only evacuee that could be found around the hotel property Friday afternoon. Rohatsch and his partner were traveling with a puppy, preventing them from getting out to see the local sights. We cant leave her, so we dont do very much, he said. Just hang out and watch CNN. Cable news didnt ease Rohatschs fears about his Myrtle Beach home half a mile from the ocean. Im very concerned about what Im going to go back to, he said. COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterLaura and Dwight NN orris enjoy the fare at Halpatter Br ewery with their K-9 companions Cora and Toby (not pictured) on Saturday. SC couple making the best of a bad situation Storm the impetus for early start to vacation.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA South Carolina couple had a Florida trip planned for later this week, but decided to get out of town while the getting was good when evacuations began at the promise of Hurricane Florences dev astation. In Nor th Carolina Saturday the storm flooded and closed a portion of the same major east coast inter state the Norris took to get fr om their South Carolina home to Lake City. We decided we would leave early in case we couldnt out of town, Dwight Norris said. On the way here from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, on Friday, Laura Norris said there was a mass exodus of those in the state that doubled travel times down Interstate 95. Coming down 95 thats all we saw , said Dwight Norris. Laura Norris added, was terrible. It just took forever. Theyve been keeping up with news from back home and of the condition of their property through neighbors who stayed put. We were really lucky, Norris said. Dwight added theyve had no damage thus far. The couple had their two dogs, Cora and Toby, at Halpatter Brewery Saturday afternoon. They approved of the local stop. This is a good find right here, said Dwight. Laura said, Were into craft beer so that was good.A trip to the springsA weekend trip to Ichetucknee Springs, the crown jewel of Columbia County, was just the thing to rejuvenate another road-weary and travel-worn couple on the run from Florence. Loretta and Gibby Gibson, who also sought refuge in Lake City, were at Ichetucknee State Park Saturday. The Hollywood, Florida husband and wife could have been mistaken for snowbirds. But it wasnt their plan to migrate this far south just yet. We were supposed to go to South Carolina, said Loretta Gibson. REFUGE continued on 5A
In 1986, a federal court ruled that the Columbia County School Board, as an elected body, could overrule state textbook committee regulations and set its own standards for the appropriateness of local school textbooks. A year later, an appeals court agreed, and thus ended a controversy over who had the final say. This controversy started when a CHS humanities teacher taught lessons from Chaucers A Millers Tale and Aristophanes Lysistrata, both on the states approved textbook list; however, some parents saw the selections as overly bawdy. The Reverend Dr. Fritz Fountain, lifelong Lake City resident, local CHS graduate, and an influential Baptist preacher, read the material and agreed it was too risque for public school classrooms and requested the school systems Textbook Evaluation Committee take a look. The committee, composed of Chairman CHS principal David Ellis, James Henry Tire, William Orr, Jack Rankin, Barbara Foreman, Richard Romine and me, met and had lengthy, frank, and open discussions on the stories in question. Finally, the committee reported their conclusions to Superintendent Dr. Silas Pitman: The committee has no objection to the two tales remaining as part of the humanities textbook but feels it would be inappropriate to make these selections required reading in the course. This recommendation was also passed on to School Board members Roger Little, Dickie Chappell, Jack Haltiwanger, Keith Hudson and Dianne Lane. After much discussion, the superintendent recommended and the School Board voted 4-1, with Dianne Lane dissenting, not to accept the Textbook Evaluation Committees recommendation, but instead to ban the book entirely and the next day the books were collected and stored in the CHS book room. Enter local citizen Claudia Johnson, a free speech advocate, author, TV scriptwriter, and Ph.D. candidate at FSU who was so offended by the book-banning ruling that she made it her calling to get the School Board ruling set aside. What followed was a community battle between the School Board advocates and Claudias freespeech backers. It seemed nobody took a middle-of-the road position, as the controversy became a major topic of discussion in the community and in the media. There was little room for compromise. The main participants were all very strong-willed people. The Rev. Dr. Fountain, a Bible scholar, had a bone-deep conviction in his beliefs. Claudia Johnson was a brilliant woman, born with free speech DNA rooted in her soul. Dr. Pitman was a man who was a natural born educator with the welfare of our school system embedded in his soul. Want to change their minds? Bring your supper. Its gonna take longer than you think. So the matter went to court and then to appeals court and finally the superintendent and School Board prevailed However, Claudia, the author and wordsmith, had one last card to play. She wrote a book about it all titled, Stifled Laughter, available in our downtown public library and also on Amazon. Whichever side you agree with, her book is one great read.

We know youd rather be home, but well do what we can to help while youre here. You are in our hearts and in our prayers. Please make yourselves at home, best you can, till its safe to go back. More and more often, evacuees flock here in the event of natural disaster to the north or south. Sometimes their choices are limited, of course, but those that end up here usually leave having nice things to say. That reflects well on our town, a cordial place always glad to have guests. We fight amongst ourselves over a myriad of matters, but thats the messy nature of democracy. Yet we are always friendly when neighbors, however distant, come calling. We wish you well, and hope to see you again under less trying circumstances.Stifled laughter revisited Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1857, the song Jingle Bells by James Pierpont was copyrighted under its original title, One Horse Open Sleigh. (The song, while considered a Christmastime classic, was actually written for Thanksgiving.) In 1893, more than 100,000 settlers swarmed onto a section of land in Oklahoma known as the Cherokee Strip. In 1908, General Motors was founded in Flint, Michigan, by William C. Durant. In 1919, the American Legion received a national charter from Congress. In 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Selective Training and Service Act. In 1953, The Robe, the first movie presented in the widescreen process CinemaScope, had its world premiere at the Roxy Theater in New York. In 1967, the TV series Mannix, starring Mike Connors as a private investigator, premiered on CBS. In 1977, Maria Callas, an American-born soprano, died in Paris at age 53. In 1982, the massacre of between 1,200 and 1,400 Palestinian men, women and children at the hands of Israeli-allied Christian Phalange militiamen began in west Beiruts Sabra and Shatila refugee camps. In 1987, two dozen countries signed the Montreal Protocol, a treaty designed to save the Earths ozone layer by calling on nations to reduce emissions of harmful chemicals by the year 2000. In 1994, a federal jury in Anchorage, Alaska, ordered Exxon Corp. to pay $5 billion in punitive damages for the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill (the U.S Supreme Court later reduced that amount to $507.5 million).Limited options as Syrian bloodbath loomsThe world has seen this scenario before. Syrian President Bashar Assad launches an offensive against a rebel stronghold, and in the process legions of civilians die either by poison gas, barrel bombs, burial beneath the rubble of razed buildings. Now Assad, with the help of his Russian and Iranian allies, is poised for an assault on the rebels last swath of territory, the northwest Syrian province of Idlib. This siege, like others before it, portends a massacre of innocents. The Trump administration has warned Assad that the U.S. would take military action it didnt say what kind if he again kills his own people with chemical weapons. The Syrian dictators use of chemical weapons in 2017 and again last April killed scores of civilians. After each attack, President Donald Trump ordered strikes on Syrian military bases. Its doubtful that those punishments have deterred Assad; according to The Wall Street Journal, U.S. officials say Assad has endorsed the use of chlorine gas in his Idlib offensive. Can the U.S. change the trajectory of a potential humanitarian catastrophe in Idlib? Almost certainly not. Unfortunately, Washington scurried to the sidelines of the Syrian conflict long ago a move that limits U.S. leverage in Syria now. The U.S. floundering in Syria began when President Barack Obama warned that Assad would be crossing a red line if he used chemical weapons against his own people. Assad ignored the warning, and Obama didnt react militarily. Washingtons reticence let Russian President Vladimir Putin assert the Kremlins influence over the conflict. Today, Assad remains in power with the backing of Russia and Iran, which now have footholds on this crucial Mideast turf. Trump inherited the chaos in Syria. He streamlined the U.S. mission there, focusing primarily on the defeat of the Islamic State. That goal has been largely accomplished Islamic State was routed out of its de facto capital in Raqqa, and its presence in Syria now has shrunk to remote areas near the Iraq border. The looming crisis in Idlib poses a new quandary for the Trump White House. Rebels numbering in the thousands are mixed in with a civilian population estimated at 3 million, one-third of them children. Many of the civilians are there because they fled other parts of war-torn Syria. At a recent United Nations gathering, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley called the planned offensive a playbook of death. Can the U.S. do more than denounce Assad? The U.S. still has 2,200 troops in northeast Syria. That preserves some leverage for the U.S. in the face of Russia and Irans presence in Syria. Turkey, which also has troops in Syria, strongly opposes the upcoming offensive in Idlib, primarily because the assault would trigger another wave of refugees into its country. Relations between Washington and Ankara have bottomed out, but the two capitals have a common goal in discouraging an Idlib assault perhaps by pushing Putin to restrain his client Assad. Thats not a satisfying or probably successful gambit. But having surrendered influential roles in Syria to Moscow and Tehran, thats about all Washington can do for now.

Their plans to visit fam ily abruptly altered, the Gibsons ar rived in town over the weekend. Loretta said they had been in North Carolina, and were on their way to see a granddaughter in the military stationed in South Car olina when they abandoned the plan. They said their granddaughter was for ced to evacuate as well. Now making the best of a bad situation, Loretta said they were on the way next to see another popular North Florida travel spot. W ere going to Fort Clinch, Gibson said. They were two of several at the park from the stor m-battered region that day, and were joined by locals taking their last rounds on the river for the season with the first day of fall approaching. Numerous North and South Carolina license plates dotted the park ing lot, and there was mor e than one from the Charleston area. While the deadly storm batters the Carolinas with catastrophic flooding, those Carolinians found respite spring side. Nearly one million resi dents from the two states have been r eported with out electricity with days of said to be in stor e. The storm turned deadly over the weekend, with r eports of at least seven killed so far. Additional mandatory evacuations were report ed from affected areas into the weekend.Steele was demonstrating the sleeve, a segment cut from a decommissioned fire hose, on a station door Thursday. These are all old hoses but they are perfectly good inside, Steele said. Altogether, she said her husband, Michael Steele, district fire chief for the city of Gainesville, will cut 150 sleeves from three decommissioned hoses, each measuring each 50 feet. Becca, a substitute teacher at FWHS, oversees their cleaning and packaging. Each hose requires special cleaning to rid it of possible carcinogens, cancer causing compounds picked up while in use at fire scenes. The task is labor intensive. The hoses are thick and even though worn from use by local firefighters theyre durable and require heavy duty cutting tools to make a clean cut. We use a chop saw, Steele said, noting that the blade was deliberately inverted for the job. She said it could be costly in another way, in that theyd lost tools while looking for the right thing to cut through the thick cloth and rubber without destroying the hose. We did kill our chop saw so I dont recommend that, Steele said. At first Steele said finding the right sleeve size was a hit-or-miss job until they learned there are roughly three sizes needed for the elementary, middle and high schools. Hopefully these will be set beside the door and the student in the back can just run up there and throw it on the door while the teacher is getting her keys to lock the doors, Steele said. She wants the idea to spread across the state, and said Michael first thought to give retired fire hoses a new assignment locally after seeing it done by a fire department in Arizona. Video of the process made its rounds on social media and soon Steele said the nonprofit she and her husband operate, Leading2Greater, picked up the project for Fort White schools. Steele said similarly patented products existed but ran nearly $70 per sleeve. Schools cant afford that so this is a free resource to them, she said. She only recently pitched the idea to local fire officials at the Forth White Festival held Sept. 1. Lt. David Bickel of CCFR immediately picked up on the idea. I will never forget, he was like Our students are our number one safety and we need to be doing everything we can to protect them, Steele said. Sleeves have already been delivered to Fort White Elementary. Becca will drop off the last of the sleeves to Fort White High on Monday.

Soap stardom, here she comesBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Countys own Cameo Sherrell, an aspiring actress and model, is a step closer to reaching her personal goal of becoming a recognized talent in the acting industry. Sherrell recently landed a guest starring role in Tyler Perrys The Haves and the Have Nots, a soap opera. The 2002 Columbia High graduate, who now lives in Los Angeles, recently signed a contract as a guest star on the show. Sherrell has been acting and modeling since she moved to New York to begin her professional career in 2006. She said she just secured the role last week. Its been amazing, she said of getting the role during a telephone interview Thursday night. Its been an absolute blessing. There are so many emotions that Im feeling right now, but most of all Im just super, super grateful. Â Sher rell said to date, its her biggest role. Although Sherrell wasnt permitted to reveal the story lines about her character, she will be playing Laura, a character in season seven of the show. Shes in six episodes as of now, Sherrell said. I dont know whats going to happen when it gets in the editing room, but my contract is for six episodes. The production crew recently wrapped up the shooting of Sherrells scenes in Atlanta at Tyler Perry studios. Sherrell was flown in last week to shoot her parts and was scheduled to leave Friday, returning to Los Angeles. Im adjusting pretty well in LA., she said. Its definitely different, but I do like it. The weather is amazing. She said moving to LA has been beneficial to her modeling and acting career but shes also found other interests. In addition to the acting and modeling, Sherrell has been able to work behind the camera. Ive been creating a lot of my own material, she said. In addition to her guest starring role on the television series, Sherrell has also appeared in a several movies on the silver screen, modeling campaigns and had non recurring roles in other television series. Some of her most recent work includes appearances in the films Inner Journey (2016), Silent Screams (2015) and In Between (2016). Â Shes also appeared in several short films. Sherrell is the daughter of Columbia County residents Lewis and Charlie Thomas. Its awesome, Sherrells mother, a former Special Olympics coach here, said of her daughters career. She has always wanted to do this. Shes always been determined and went after what she wanted. Her favorite scripture is, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. She was always determined that (an actress) is what she wanted to be. Im very proud of her. Through all her trials, tribulations and everything, she didnt let anything stop her. Her parents get to see Sherrell during the Christmas holidays and throughout the year they often share conversations on FaceTime.

The Tigers fell to the Cowboys 42-28 last season at Boot Hill Stadium. The Tigers trying to stay undefeated on the year.WHAT IT MEANSColumbia now becomes the favorite to win District 2-7A after snapping a three-game losing skid to Lee. It would be Columbias first district title since the 2015 season.WHAT HAPPENED The Tigers hosted the Generals Friday night. Columbia defeated the reigning league champ Robert E. Lee by edging the Generals in the final minutes of the opener. BACKUP PLANPhotos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia quarterback Jordan Smith scrambles down the field during the district opener against Lee. The junior star was sidelined after suffering a concussion. Columbia hangs on to defeat Lee as Wehinger keeps offense moving.By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comEnding losing streaks is never easy. Friday was no different. Columbia lost its starting quarterback, had two punts blocked and surrendered 497 yards to Robert E. Lee. But it didnt matter. The Tigers werent losing to the Generals again in 2018. Class 7A No. 2 Columbia ended a three-game skid to Robert E. Lee, holding on for 42-37 win at home in the teams District 2-7A opener. Backup quarterback Ty Wehinger threw two touchdowns to four-star prospect TJ Jones in the second half after starter Jordan Smith suffered a concussion shortly before halftime. Smith was injured after taking a vicious hit from Lee defender Deshaun Davis as he scrambled away from pressure in the closing seconds of the half. It took 48 minutes and four quarters to get out of this place, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Smith completed 8/13 passes for 145 yards in the first half with three total touchdowns, hitting receiver Marquez Bell for a diving 36-yard touchdown on the games opening drive and also running for two more on runs of 11 and 29 yards. But Wehinger stepped up in Smiths absence, finishing the night 5/8 for 118 yards with touchdown throws to Jones of 26 and 61 yards to help Columbia (4-0, 1-0) keep Lee (3-1, 0-1) at bay. We dont train one kid here at Columbia. We make sure we have the second one ready as well, Allen said. Wehinger is one of the smartest kids in our program and he understands this offense up, down, left, right. I thought he came in in his role and did an outstanding job in the second half. Lee quarterback Cameron Sapp was menace for Columbia, throwing for 407 yards and four touchdowns while completing 26/48 passes. Tahveon Nicholson caught eight of those completions for 146 yards and a score in addition to running for another while Jurial Caldwell caught six passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. Sapp and company answered both of Columbias first two scoring drives and appeared poised to do so a third time until safety Ahmad Williams made arguably the biggest play of the game.

Ross Chastain earns 1st Xfinity win, holding off Allgaier LAS VEGAS (AP) Ross Chastain held off Justin Allgaier for his first NASCAR Xfinity Series victory Saturday, pulling away on the final restart for a long-awaited break through in his 132nd series start. Chastain led 180 of the 200 laps, but had to dig in on several restarts to stay in front of Allgaier, the regular-season Xfinity champion. Just two weeks after the 25-year-old Chastain had a much-publicized dust-up with Cup series star Kevin Harvick when the drivers hit each other at Darlington, he earned a difficult victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Im just a watermelon farmer from Florida! said Chastain, who indeed worked on his familys watermelon farm until his teens. Im not supposed to do that! Man, thats a testament that any thing in life is possible. Chastain swept all three stages in the second start of his three-race contract with Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet, persevering each time the action slowed in the wreck-filled race. In Victory Lane, he gleefully held a watermelon aloft like a trophy. Cole Custer was third, followed by Christopher Bell and Elliott Sadler. Violent wrecks dominated much of the action. Matt Tifft spun without contact on the 64th lap and wrecked Ryan Reed, with both cars going hard into the wall. That was a tough one, Reed said. Knocked the wind out of me pretty bad. The right side is all banged up. I am all good. Nothing broken or anything. I will just be sore tomorrow. The race also had two wrecks in the final 25 laps, delaying the finish significantly. Chase Briscoe hit the inside wall of the back stretch and went airborne while spinning after a sequence of three-wide racing alongside Tyler Reddick, who hit him. Briscoe safely got out of his flaming car. Allgaier clinched the overall regular-season series title during the second stage in his JR Motorsports Chevrolet, completing an impressive second-half surge in the Xfinity season.

Next race is Sept. 29 at Alligator Lake. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FLORIDA 48, COLORADO ST. 10 By MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Dan Mullen strolled to the middle of the locker room and waved his arms. Then he started moving the rest of his body. A few seconds later, his players joined in and created a full-team dance party After last weeks debacle against Kentucky the Gators needed a feelgood victory. Freddie Swain scored twice, including on an 85-yard punt return, and Florida beat Colorado State 48-10 Saturday in a game dubbed the Buyout Bowl. Sometimes were looking at the guys eyes and theyre coming into this program and they fear losing and theyre relieved by winning, Mullen said. You cant be successful that way. You cant play that way. You cant act that way. You cant even think that way. Feleipe Franks also threw two touchdown passes, giving him nine in three games and matching his total from last season. Thats a big step forward, Mullen said. The Gators (2-1) were far from perfect offensively, though, finishing with 341 yards or more than 200 fewer than the Rams (1-3) had been giving up this season. Franks had a few highlights, including an 18-yard strike to Swain in the second quarter and an even better deep ball to Van Jefferson in the fourth. Jordan Scarlett had a 30-yard touchdown run in the second, his first trip to the end zone in nearly two years. The Gators were otherwise mediocre on that side of the ball, managing just 44 plays and 14 first downs. Special teams were a different story. Tyrie Cleveland recovered a blocked punt for a score and Swain delivered the fourth-longest punt return for a touchdown in school history. That was enough to put away the Rams in a game that served as a reminder of ex-coach Jim McElwains success at Colorado State and his failure at Florida. The Gators will pay the Rams a whopping $2 million for the game, part of McElwains $7 million buyout to leave Fort Collins for Gainesville late in the 2014 season. McElwain didnt last long enough at Florida to be around for the game against his former team. He is now the receivers coach at Michigan. Franks completed 8 of 15 passes for 119 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. He was 8-of-9 passing after missing his first six throws. Scarlett ran six times for 56 yards. Freshman Dameon Pierce went untouched for a 68-yard score late in the game and finished with 87 yards on the ground. K.J. Carta-Samuels was 21-of-34 passing for 217 yards and a score. The Rams lost three of their four fumbles and also missed two field goals. They managed 310 yards on 83 plays and picked up 22 first downs. Our guys need to hold their heads high, said CSU coach Mike Bobo, who fell to 6-13 all-time as a player and coach against Florida. The score is not indicative of how we played or how close the game was.Florida handles Colorado StateCOLLEGE FOOTBALL: SYRACUSE 30, FLORIDA STATE 7 By JOHN KEKISAssociated PressSYRACUSE Syracuse took another big step toward putting the woeful recent past in the rearview mirror. Quarterback Tommy DeVito, subbing for injured starter Eric Dungey, scored on a 3-yard run and hit tight end Ravian Pierce with a 3-yard score in a span of just over 3 minutes in the third quarter, and Syracuse beat Florida State 30-7 on Saturday in the sweltering heat of the Carrier Dome. They really played their heart out, said a hoarse Syracuse coach Dino Babers, who led another rousing postgame locker room celebration. I thought it was a fantastic family win. Those guys (FSU) are the top athletes in the country. To get a win like this, we need to enjoy it. Dungey was hurt late in the second quarter and never returned as the Orange took a slim 6-0 lead into the break. Babers said afterward that Dungey was suffering blurred vision from a poke in the eye and expected him back. The absence of the Oranges fiery leader didnt matter one bit on this day against the Seminoles (1-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who were unable to generate much of an attack against the inspired defense of the Orange (3-0, 1-0). I thought the other elements (defense and special teams) were playing really, really well, Babers said. I thought that if they came in and managed the game we would have a chance. Syracuse recorded four sacks, deflected a couple of passes, and constantly harassed quarterback Deondre Francois, who finished 18 of 36 for 178 yards passing with one interception while leading an offense that gained just 240 yards. FSU also was called for 11 penalties for 90 yards. We keep on making mistakes at every position (on offense), Francois said. We got to be in sync and come together as one unit. Right now, were just making little mistakes. Were taking turns either receivers, quarterback, running back, tight end, O-line. We keep taking turns and its killing our drives. DeVito, a redshirt freshman with limited experience in the first two games, exhibited great poise in guiding the Orange in the second half as they snapped a fivegame conference losing streak. He had completions of 33 yards to Jamal Custis and hit Pierce with a pass for 22 more before scoring his first career touchdown on a keeper up the midway through the third quarter.Syracuse beats FSU behind DeVito B2
SUND AY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORS Consider a career as a FWC law enforcement officerBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterLaw enforcement is just an essential part of society. Without the Highway Patrol, people would drive 100 mph on our highways. The honor system by itself just doesnt work. Its like that with everything. Of course the majority of folks comply with the law, but there are always those that just wont. Its the same with our game laws. If we didnt have someone out there to ensure hunting and fishing regulations are followed, there is that group that would consistently break the law. So this why we need FWC (Fish and Wildlife Commission) Law Enforcement Officers. FWC Law Enforcement Officers are there to ensure fish and wildlife laws are followed. This is one way we protect our natural resources. They also educate and help folks that need assistance. To become a FWC Law Enforcement Officer, one must: be at least 18 years old to apply (19 at date of hire), be a citizen of the US, have a high school diploma (or GED), have a Florida drivers license with no more than four traffic violations in the past three years, no DUI convictions in the past five years, have not been dishonorably discharged from the military, pass the physical fitness requirements, and be a person of good moral character. These are the basic requirements and there are more. The vision requirements are 20/20 corrected vision in each eye with unaided vision of at least 20/100 in each eye. The applicant must also pass a physical examination and complete a physical fitness test. A psychological evaluation is also required. The physical fitness test involves swimming 150 yards in 8 minutes 27 seconds or less. Applicants will also be required to run 500 feet and then complete a series of other maneuvers involving jumping over hurdles, traversing an obstacle course, dragging a 150lb. weight and several other activities. Once the minimum requirements are met, along with drug screening, the applicant will be interviewed and reviewed extensively. If all goes well, the applicant will be offered employment and admitted to the FWC Law Enforcement Training Program for eight weeks of specialized training. Upon passing the training program, the Officer will complete 16-weeks of Field Training. Once this is accomplished, the individual will be given approval to carry out the duties of a Fish and Wildlife Law Enforcement Officer. This is a great career for a young man or young lady who enjoys the outdoors. FWC Wildlife Law Enforcement Officers protect our resources so that the rest of us can have enjoyable and meaningful hunting and fishing trips. We know they are there, doing their jobs but we just dont thank them enough. Decades ago, when I was in High School, an old friend (well call him Murray) knocked on the door of my familys house at 9:30 pm. Of course from my fathers perspective that was way past the appropriate hour to knock on a door for a visit. I had hunted quite a bit with Murray several years back but like friends sometimes do, we went our separate ways. Murray was beaming with pride and just had to show off the eight or ten point buck he had shot. Murray asked my dad and me to come out and look at it. The deer was stuffed in the trunk of his car and it was impressive. My dad immediately knew Murray didnt bag this deer lawfully. I found out later, Murray had driven his car into a farmers cornfield after dark, parked, and then waited for deer to show up. When he could see their silhouettes or hear them crunching around in the dry corn stubble, he would turn on his headlights. The deer, blinded by the light would just stand there while Murray took careful aim with his .222 Remington. So on that fall night, this was how Murray bagged his trophy. It obvious to all that Murray had broken the law. I offered him a tepid congratulations. Not so with my father who brusquely told Murray that it was late and we all needed to get ready for work and school tomorrow, so good night! After that, I only saw Murray a few times. I always wondered how he explained this unlawful kill to his father. Sadly, maybe that was not a problem. So this is why we must have someone to protect the animals, plants, fish and other organisms that exist in our beautiful state. Theyre uniquely suited to thrive in their environment but often are at our mercy. It is true that Murrays deer would have been an absolute trophy. But it was sullied along with his integrity when he took it illegally. If you enjoy the outdoors and would like to play an integral part in protecting our resources, consider being a FWC Law Enforcement Officer.

Lets go fishing!From staff reportsIts time for the annual Lake Eaton Kids Fishing Derby at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Ocala Conservation Center and Youth Camp. The derby, for children ages 6-12, will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13. Advance registration is required, and space is limited to the first 100 children. To sign up, call the FWCs Northeast Regional Office in Ocala at 352-7321225 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Ocala Conservation Center is 8.5 miles north of State Road 40 off County Road 314 in the Ocala National Forest. Everything needed to participate, including cane poles, bait and instruction, will be provided by the FWC. The kids will fish from a pier. For safety reasons and to avoid tangled lines, do not bring your own rod and reel to this event. In addition to fishing, there will be a casting contest, an arts and crafts activity and an all-time favorite called Bugs and Critters. In this activity, the participants get to wade into the lake with dip nets and scoop up fish, bugs and other aquatic critters. An FWC biologist uses the experience to teach about the aquatic ecosystem. The kids will get wet, so they should bring a change of clothes and proper footwear.COURTESY B3

CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White running back Stanley Maxwell makes a move at home Friday night. Stan the Man lifts tribe to victory By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Trailing at halftime, the Indians entered the locker room frustrated, knowing they werent playing their best in a high-stakes regional game. Fort White didnt waste any time in the second half, asserting its dominance on Taylor County. Fort Whites defense shut down Taylor Countys spread offense.The Indians forced three turnovers after halftime, keeping the Bulldogs scoreless in the second half, which helped Fort White cruise to a 27-12 win over Taylor County on Friday night. We just came out with more intensity, Fort White receiver/cornerback Derrick Roberson, who had the game-sealing interception, said of the second half. And then we just got it together. We were struggling at first, but we got it together. We had to do what we had to do to win, even through the adversity. Fort White (2-1, 1-0) avenged last years loss to regional foe Taylor County (1-3, 0-1) by slowing down Bulldogs quarterback Robert Glanton, who was held to just 75 total yards in the second half. The tribes stout defense not only contained Glanton, but more importantly, gave the offense opportunities and enough time to find a groove as the unit exploded for 21 unanswered points after intermission. We just talked about guys making plays, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. We felt good about our gameplan, but it really came down to guys making plays, and they did We had opportunities in the first half when the defense had them stopped but [offense] just didnt make the plays We just came out in the second half and made plays. And thats what I told them, I need some guys to make plays. Fort White did just that with quarterback Dylan Blair leading the way. Blair tossed a touchdown and scored another on a goal-line keeper. The senior tallied 119 total yards in a performance that earned the Columbia transfer his first win at Arrowhead Stadium. When we came out of the locker room, we knew we had to show out, he said of the second half. We wanted to win this game, and all we had to do was make the right playsWhen were clicking, I really dont think anyone can stop us. Fort White was challenged though when Taylor County made a strong push to end the opening half. After Stanley Maxwells first of two touchdowns, coming midway through the first quarter, Taylor County responded with a 2-yard score by Glanton. The Indians relinquished momentum when the Bulldogs returned to the end zone on their next drive. Taylor County broke a tied game on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Glanton to Zoe Roberts, helping the Bulldogs to a slim advantage at the break. Maxwells longest run of the game came on a 40-yard touchdown early in the third. The Indians never lost momentum again when Roberson blocked a punt minutes later and was recovered by Izaya Latham. Fort White capitalized on the turnover and capped off the short 11-yard scoring drive on a 1-yard punch by Blair. He was not done yet, either. His 6-yard touchdown pass to Rahman Paul at the end of the third gave the Indians a comfortable two-score lead and they never looked back. Fort Whites lights-out defense in the final period sealed the teams first regional win of the year. After back to back wins, the Indians look to keep the success up as the 4-game home-stretch continues with Bradford this coming week. Fort White hopes to pick up its third-straight victory against the reeling Tornadoes next Friday night. Enjoy this moment, Jackson told his team after the game. But we teach them to go ahead [move on], and get on that film to see what Bradford does. So we can get back to work and get in that mindset of next team up.By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Stanley Maxwell took the handoff and bounced out toward the left sideline, but trouble awaited him a pack of Bulldogs. He improvised, reversed field and scored on a 40-yard touchdown run early in the third on Friday night. It was one of several standout plays made by the senior running back during the regional contest against Taylor County. Maxwell finished the game with two scores and a game-high 138 total yards to push the Indians to a home-opener victory. He knew entering the game that his performance would be vital, especially with backs Corey Dryden (knee), Brayden Summers (ankle) and Kam Calhoun (foot) all out. I had to come out and play for the boys, Maxwell said. We had to come together as a team and play for each other when people are down. That was my mindset the whole week. Injury bug has gotten to some players, but my mindset was to eat and play for my brothers. I just wanted to get it done and secure the [win]. Maxwell made the most of his opportunity when Summers suffered a high-ankle sprain during the first half last week at Santa Fe. He pushed the Indians to a big blowout win over the Raiders in his absence. And a week later, he was tasked with the same duty, this time without his bulldozing fullback, Calhoun. Nonetheless, the star scatback put the tribe on his shoulders when his tiwahe needed him most. I was extremely impressed, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said of Maxwell. Stanley only missed one of two days of summer [conditioning], so we know hes in shape. We knew he could do it. Sometimes Stanley takes plays off because hes not focused, I told him theres nobody behind you, whether its good or bad, you got to go. And he did that. While starting running back Corey Dryden remains out for the season, Summers could make his return as early as this coming week versus Bradford. Both backs are expected to continue to share carries when Summers is healthy. Regardless of what happens moving forward, the Indians know they have a capable ballcarrier in Maxwell, who anchored his team to its second win of the season on Friday night. He stepped up and just kept churning, Jackson added. He told the offensive line you guys keep blocking and Im running right behind you. B4

8B SUND AY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER FRIDAY NIGHT NOTEBOOK QB Smith in concussion protocol By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comColumbia quarterback Jordan Smith is out indefinitely following a concussion suffered during Fridays 42-37 win over Robert E. Lee. He took a nasty hit from Lee defender Deshaun Davis shortly before halftime as he flipped the ball up the field to receiver TJ Jones for a 13-yard completion. Smith came out of the locker room after halftime with his jersey in hand and visibly upset he couldnt reenter the game. But it was for a good reason he told me he couldnt even remember the play. Theres a good chance Smith will miss next weeks home contest against Madison County. If he cant go, sophomore Ty Wehinger will get his first career start. Head coach Brian Allen thought the hit was late and should have been flagged, especially after looking at it on film at halftime. When you go back and look at the film, and Ill never be critical of guys that out here doing their best job but when a guy is letting the ball go and there are three steps that take place and theres a helmet-to-helmet contact and theres no flag thrown, Ive got a problem with that, Allen said. At the end of the day this is my quarterback and at the end of the day I care about my kids. When were in the state of where we are right now in the sport of football, guys are getting 70 or 100,000 dollar fines for things that are not even as close as that (in the NFL). At the end of the day we have to protect the kids. Hes going to be fine. Hes in concussion protocol but at the end of the day weve got to be better than that. FULL CONFIDENCE IN TY Wehinger showed flashes of what hes capable of in Fridays win. He had two touchdown throws to receiver TJ Jones that were especially encouraging as well as a boost for his confidence. His performance off the bench was also surprising considering he didnt take a single first-team rep in practice all week. Hes a 4.0 kid. Hes smart, Allen said. He understands not to sit on the bench while Jordan is in. He stays right beside coach and hears everything thats being communicated in the game plan. When I hand that package to him on Monday and the scouting report, I can assure you Ty is a numbers guy. Hes going to go through and know everything about our opponent. Thats why he had success tonight when he came out in the second half. JONES FINDS THE END ZONE Jones had yet to score a touchdown through three games this season but finally found pay dirt on Friday night twice. The first was a 26-yard strike from Wehinger to Jones but the second was even more impressive. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Jones caught a quick pass from Wehinger and juked away from two defenders before beating another one on his way to a 61-yard touchdown. It felt great. It was like a chip on my shoulder for not scoring yet, Jones said. People expect me to score so it I had a little pressure on me. I was telling Coach Allen that I just want to play hard and ball and go off like people know I can do. He just told me were good and dont overthink it, dont over sweat it, just play relaxed and thats how I did tonight. Wehinger had a feeling Jones was in for a big night when they talked on Thursday. (Thursday) night I actually told him to be humble and wait and be patient and itll come, Wehinger said. It was a surprise that it came from me. I was just glad that it did. LACKING COVERAGE Aside from safety Ahmad Williams strip for a 78-yard touchdown, Columbias secondary had a rough night. Lee quarterback Cameron Sapp threw for 407 yards and pick the Tigers back end apart all night, nearly bringing the Generals back from a 22-point deficit. I thought they played an amazing first half of football. But weve got to be able to finish, Allen said. Something we pride ourselves on is finishing in the fourth quarter. I dont know if its eye violations or what the case is, but when there are guys wide open thats something Im never going to like. Now if a guy goes up and he makes a play on the ball we can live with that. But when weve got a situation where guys are wide open weve got to fix those things because theyll get you beat down the road. The Generals also converted six of their 15 third down attempts, scoring twice on third down and once on fourth down. It was really busted assignments. It deals with communication, Williams said. Weve got to get better at communicating on the field on third and fourth down. As DBs weve got to lock on our receivers because we cant let them get deep. FRONT SEVEN SHOW Despite throwing for 407 yards, Sapp was scrambling away from pressure for most of the night and was sacked three times. Levontae Camiel and Newkirk Gilshard both had sacks while Jaylen Brown had another that forced a fumble and led to a turnover. Camiel also had another sack called back for a facemask penalty. I really have to give all the credit to my defensive line. They open up every play for me and I just thank God for my God-given ability, Camiel said. They make me look like the superstar when really theyre the stars. Camiel was also seen chirping back and forth with Lee players all night, providing a fire to the defensive unit. Hes played amazing all year, Allen said. Sometimes you get a diamond in the rough that falls into your lap. That kid transferred here and hes been a player. Hes been a team player since getting here and were happy to have him.Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia quarterback Ty Wehinger (middle) reviews plays next to right tackle Zach Bedenbaugh (right) in the second half. Columbia quarterback Jordan Smith smiles on the sideline after being taken out Friday night. Columbia receiver TJ Jones cele brates with teammates after scoring a touchdown at home Friday night. back Kevonte Doles pushed for yardage towards Columbias 20-yard line, linebackers Ethan Umstead and Jaylen Brown wrapped him up while Williams came darting in, stripping the ball right out of his hands and taking it back 78 yards the other way for a touchdown to put the Tigers up 28-14 with 1:45 to go in the first half. He was holding the ball really loose so I reached my hand in and stripped it, Williams said. It popped up a little bit but I caught it. I didnt know if (the referees) blew it dead or not but I looked and took off running. There was a lot of green grass to run and score seven. It was a huge game changer that completely swung momentum right before halftime. Columbias defense later set up another score in the third quarter when Browns sacked Sapp and forced a fumble that was recovered by teammate Terrick Ponds. The next play was a 26-yard touchdown pass from Wehinger to Jones to put the Tigers up 35-14. Jones finished with five catches for 143 yards. I was sorry for Jordan to go down. I just did my best to be to one to lead the team and I tried to respond the best I could, said Wehinger, who didnt take a single first-team rep in practice during the week. I was a little nervous at first. After a couple of plays I kind of got a feel for it. Lee answered with a 60-yard scoring drive with Sapp connecting with Terry Mckinney for a 9-yard touchdown. But Wehinger and Jones answered again on the games next drive with Jones juking two defenders and beating another to the end zone before the Generals marched the comeback trail down 42-20. Although the Generals turned it over on downs on their next possession, they blocked two consecutive Columbia punts. The first led to Sapps 38-yard touchdown pass to Nicholson while Columbias defense stopped Sapp a yard short on fourth-and-10 the second time. But Lee still wouldnt go away. Wehinger was sacked back at the 1-yard line and Columbia punter Garrett Fennell was forced to take an intentional safety to avoid another blocked punt. The Generals took the ball back and Sapp threw a 32-yard score to Doles on a 4th-and-6. Lee then tried an onside kick but Columbia recovered to run out the clock. It was a situation there where we had two punts blocked and we didnt want to give up the field position and an opportunity for them to potentially get a touchdown, Allen said. We wanted to eat some time up and make them drive the field further than where we were. It ended up working out but it definitely got a little scary there at the end.

By TONY BRITtbrit@lakecityreporter.comOver the next few weeks, Sitel intends to hire 100 additional employees for a temporary client looking for help with increased call volume. Sitel, an inbound contact center where employees field calls for customers for various clients, is hiring through all its locations. Were looking for another 100 employees to build up on our present campaign, said Gladys Leah Poje, head of human resources at the Lake City Sitel office. Its a temporary campaign. Poje said the campaign with the client, which she declined to name, started Aug. 31 and will extend through November and hopefully into December. She said there is a possibility the campaign could become permanent. Our call centers have a bigger call volume,x and were looking for more people to come to work, she said. The prospective employees could come from any local demographics male or female and a variety of age groups. Sitel said the call campaign will be split into two shifts and operate seven days a week. Training will take place 9 a.m. 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and the work schedule will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. 3 a.m. seven days a week. Were looking for people who are able to work on the phone and who are used to taking customer service calls and people who have worked in restaurants and are good with dealing with people in the restaurants and know what customer service is. Basically, even new graduates sometimes. Its a career start for many new graduates who come in and like what theyre doing. The client Sitel is working for on this campaign has learned its call center volume is going up, so they requested Sitel hire more employees, Poje said, noting these are seasonal hirings. Sitel started the recent hiring push at the beginning of August when they learned about the new campaign and began to advertise for additional employees. The first classes to train new employees began Aug. 31. Sitel is hoping to have the additional 100 employees in place by Sept. 28. People need to come in and apply or get their applications done online at Sitel. com, and come in and get their background require ments completed, Poje said. And they should be approved to start Sept. 28. In the past few weeks Sitel has sought employees by advertising on its Facebook site and posting signs, and it hosted a job fair at the facility through Career Source Florida. They (Career Source Florida) have been assisting us for people who are on unemployment, Poje said. They always come and help. Basically it turned into a job fair for almost two weeks because weve been trying to get the first 100. This is a new push since last week.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1622, 2018 Get a game plan for getting out of dead-end jobDear Dave, Im stuck in a dead-end job, and I only have a high school diploma. Ive never minded long hours and hard work, but Ive begun to realize I need to have a better career, so I can spend more time with my kids. I feel like Im missing out on their lives, because I work 65 to 70 hours every week. Do you have any advice on how to change my situation? Tim Dear Tim, Asking questions and exploring your options like this is a much smarter move than simply walking away from an unsatisfying job situation especially when you have a family to think about. Im glad youre wise enough to take a thoughtful look at the situation, instead of making a rash decision that could have a negative impact on you and your family. Theres absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself in terms of education or your career. But before you do any of that, youve got to have a definite direction in mind. You need an in-depth, detailed game plan for the next three or four years thats designed to put you where you want to be. It may involve going back to school for some classes, additional training in your field, or even getting a full-blown degree. If you identify your long-term goals in detail, it will lead you to some of the short-term goals that will help you arrive at your final destination. Have you tried talking to your boss about your goals and your situation? See if you can have a sincere conversation with him or her, and discuss your feelings about your career and whats going on with your family, too. Your company may be very receptive to the idea of increasing your value in the workplace. A good leader will also understand the importance of family. Also, theres a great book by Dan Miller that addresses this topic. Its called 48 Days to the Work You Love. In this book, he lays out the steps to discovering what you really love to do and how to get there. Best of luck, Tim! Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Summer is coming to an end, which means we are more than halfway through the year. What about those resolutions you made for 2018? If youre like most people, they probably went out the window during summer vacations. Weve all been there! With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to hit reset on your financial goals. Before you know it, youll be busy booking holiday travel plans, buying gifts for loved ones and enjoying other festivities. No matter how youre doing, you have plenty of time to get back on track. Here are a few ways to reach your financial goals before 2018 comes to an end:Make some adjustmentsMaybe your New Years resolutions werent realistic, or you had something pop up that drained your emergency fund and slowed you down. Life happens, and its okay to adjust your goals. Look at where you are financially today and decide where you want to be by the end of the year. Dont be afraid to set new goals for yourself, too. You can start making progress toward your future today. Just make sure you factor in the amount of time left in the year as you reset your goals to ensure theyre attainable. Get back to budgetingA budget is the most important thing when it comes to winning with money. If you dont tell your money where to go, youll wonder where it went! Assess how youve spent your money over the past few months. Look for areas where you can cut back (dining out, groceries, new clothes), and put that money toward your goals. Trust me, youll feel less stressed. Plan aheadIts September, which means well be decking the halls before you know it. At this point, you can count how many paychecks you have left until the holidays. The last thing you want to do is spend money you dont have. In 2017, roughly 74 percent of Americans said they failed to budget properly for the holidays and racked up an average of $1,054 in debt. Plan ahead by adding a line item to your budget for holiday spending. Aside from gifts, dont forget to factor in travel expenses, charitable giving, and parties. Start setting this money aside now so you can enjoy the holiday season guilt-free. Track your progressYouve got your budget, so now you just have to make sure that you stick to it and stay motivated. Tracking your progress can be one of the most helpful ways to do this. When you can visualize your progress, youll be excited by those quick wins, youll be less tempted to spend what you dont have, and youll be motivated to keep going. Ive created a free goal tracker that you can download at www.rachelcruze.com to make this part easy and fun! Focus on what mattersSometimes we want things so badly they start to feel more like needs. Do you really need the newest iPhone? Do you really need to replace your outdated computer? These things are nice to have, but theyre not must-haves. With social media today, keeping up with the Joneses is harder than ever. And who would want to anyway? Dont compare your life to someone elses highlight reel. Focus on your goals and the things that really matter in life. You dont have to wait for a new year to set new goals, or make progress toward the goals youve already set. In order to win with your money later, you must be intentional today!

Rachel Cruze rachelcruze.comRACHEL SAYSHit reset on financial goals before end of the year FGC enrollment upFor the fourth consecutive year, enrollment at Florida Gateway College continues to increase. Estimated final numbers for the Fall 2018 semester indicate that enrollment at FGC has experienced an 7.6 percent increase above last years already high ly successful enrollment growth. The college currently estimates that enrollment will increase 6 percent for the 2018-2019 academic year, bringing total enrollment growth to 24 percent for the past 4 years. On average, Florida community/state college enrollment has been down significantly for the past four years, as has been the national average for community colleges. Historically, college enrollments decline when the economy and job market is strong, but FGC continues to grow rapidly against the cyclical nature of enrollment. This increase is due to a multitude of initiatives that the faculty and staff have embraced and created, said FGC President Lawrence Barrett. This includes breaking down barriers to student success in the initial stages of enrollment, repackaging student scholarships such as the Board of Trustees Scholarships, increasing support services for students such as tutoring and success coaches, academic initiatives, reintroducing athletics and student housing on campus, and the list goes on and on. We are creatively working together on campus not just to recruit students but help them graduate and achieve their goals. One data point Barrett notes is that FGC students who graduate and transfer to State University System institutions perform just as well as students who enter a university as a freshman, with an average GPA of 3.13. From staff reports Barrett More comfortable mammography available at Lake City Medical CenterHere are a few words that rarely go together: relaxed, comfortable, and mammogram. Thats why Lake City Medical Center and Invision Imaging is now offering our patients a brand new option in mam mograms: the Senographe Pristina. Designed from the ground up with the input from women, it is the first mammography system to provide women with the three Cs: comfort, confidence, and clarity. This machine is the very latest in mammography technology and Lake City Medical Center is the very first facility within North Florida and South Georgia to obtain one. Even the machine itself is designed to resemble not just a piece of medical equipment, but a piece of art, with rounded edges and elegant lighting. But the design is more than just aesthetic; the gentle, rounded corners of the image receptor, where the woman places her breasts, completely changes the stance of the traditional mammogram. Instead of tensing their pectoral muscles while grabbing the traditional handgrips which can make it hard to acquire high quality images women can lean comfortably on the armrests, relaxing their muscles to simplify positioning, compression, and improve image quality. The image receptor is also thinner than the previous design, so it doesnt jab into a womans ribs. The design also improves the technicians workflow, which improves patient positioning that could lead to faster, more precise exams. Indeed, poor positioning in mammography is a key factor in image problems, often requiring a repeat scan. The lack of proper positioning can also reduce the sensitivity of the mammogram, possibly leading to missed cancers. With Senographe Pristina, we can now bring 3D technology to our patients. This technology, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, delivers superior diagnostic accuracy at the same low dose as a 2D mammography exam, the lowest patient dose of all FDA-approved 3D mammography systems. The technology uses a lowdose short X-ray sweep around the positioned breast with nine exposures acquired with a stepand-shoot method. This helps remove any movement of the x-ray tube, reducing blur and increasing image sharpness. From staff reports
WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1622, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER 3C An estimated 97 people showed up looking for employment during the job fair, Poje said. During Sitels initial push to get additional employees in early August, around 250 people came out. Sitel is hoping to have a total of 250 employees at its Lake City site when the hiring campaign is completed. Weve brought back probably about 90 percent of the people we left in May and June, Poje said. Poje said shes ecstatic so many people have been given employment opportunities through the recent hiring push leading to the holiday season. I feel very happy, she said. For one, most of our rehires, a lot of people are grateful to be back and have jobs, so Im happy to see many of them. Ive been here for four years and I know quite a few of them. Its a good feeling. Theyre happy to be back to work and Sitel is happy to put them back to work. Sitel has always welcomed everybody and were looking forward to the return of keeping everybody happy and employed. Think of us as a career opportunity because a lot of people who are here have been here many years. We look forward to growing with the community.

The most important thing to understand about these policies is that theyre designed to be held for life, and there are often significant upfront charges involved. These tax-sheltered savings can end up outperforming taxed investments, but that can take 10 to 20 years, and it isnt always worth it. Never opt for cash value insurance without doing a lot of homework. Dont let an aggressive agent sway you with confusing presentations and emotional arguments. (Think of your children!) Remember that term life can last as long as you want, via guaranteed renewable policies. If youre attracted to the investment portion of cash value insurance, know that you can always buy less-expensive term insurance and invest the difference on your own. You stand a good chance of outperforming the insurance company, too. Dont buy more insurance than you need or the wrong kind of insurance. You want to protect and replace the income stream that would be lost if you die, but you neednt set up a lotterylike payout on your death.

Bears worry that Amazon will leverage its access to big data and its vast online retail network to essentially crush CVS Healths all-important pharmacy services segment, which generated a whopping $33.2 billion in revenue during the second quarter of this year. But this fear is almost certainly overblown. CVS Health has an entrenched competitive position that wont be easily overcome by any would-be competitor even Amazon. Its latest quarter featured pharmacy prescription volume at stores open more than a year jumping 9.5 percent over the prior-year period, helping drive overall revenue up 5.7 percent. Contributing factors include continued success for CVS Healths patient care programs, alliances with health plans and other pharmacy benefit managers, inclusion in more Medicare Part D networks and higher brand drug prices. Many investors also like the same-day drug delivery service that the company is rolling out in many cities and have high hopes for its planned merger with Aetna. CVS Healths shares have recently been trading at attractive levels, with a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 10. The stock also sports a dividend that recently yielded 2.6 percent. (The Motley Fool has recommended CVS Health.) rffConventional Not-So-Wise-DomMy biggest financial blunder was listening to conventional wisdom about diversification. Many years ago, I was living in Austin, Texas, where Dell was based. Dell was growing like gangbusters and was about to go public. Meanwhile, my portfolio was already heavily weighted with shares of Compaq Computer, which was performing well for me. I heeded the old adage to not have too much money in a single industry, so I passed on the Dell shares. I could have made many times my initial investment in it, had I bought some shares. I learned its more important to invest in businesses youre very familiar with than to blindly follow conventional wisdom. J.R., Austin, Texas The Fool Responds: The conventional wisdom isnt that silly, as plenty of industries have been hit hard at various times. The airline industry, for example, could get whacked by soaring fuel prices, while pharmaceutical companies might suffer if some reform limits how high they can set prices. If you were that excited about Dell and also wanted to remain invested in Compaq, you might have sold half your Compaq shares and put that money into Dell. Its also worth noting that investing in initial public offerings (IPOs) can be tricky, and its often best to wait a year or so for the stock to settle down. Usually only the most connected investors get the actual initial shares, with others buying at higher prices. Interesting Interest RatesQWhat makes interest rates go up and down? C.N., Worcester, MassachusettsAInterest rates are strongly influenced by inflation and the debt market (think Treasury notes, bills, bonds, etc.). Inflation has been low in recent years, averaging about 3 percent annually over decades. Interest rates have started inching up, but are still below average. After all, the prime rate topped 20 percent in 1980.When the economy appears to be growing too briskly, the Federal Reserve can slow growth and keep inflation in check by hiking shortterm interest rates via the federal funds rate the rate a bank can charge another bank for use of its excess money. The Fed also sets the discount rate the rate banks pay it to borrow short-term funds. When the economy is sluggish, the Fed will often try to juice it by lowering rates, encouraging companies and people to borrow (and spend!) money. The prime rate, mortgage interest rates and other interest rates are often directly or indirectly influenced by the federal funds rate or the discount rate. The money markets themselves (basic supply and demand for credit) also exert great influence over interest rates.***QIve saved a little money, and I want to invest in stocks. What do I do? O.A., Shenandoah, IowaAFirst, pay off any high-interest-rate debt and fund an emergency account with at least several months worth of living expenses. Meanwhile, read up on investing.

Heres a review of what you should know. For starters, understand that life insurance is meant to protect an income stream. If anyone, such as your children or your parents, depends on your income, life insurance can protect it. If youre single or have no dependents, though, you probably dont need life insurance. Next, know that there are two main types of life insurance: term and cash value. With term insurance, your premium payments are applied entirely to the cost of the insurance, and coverage is easily stopped when its no longer needed (such as when your kids are selfsupporting). Term insurance is simple and effective. Cash value insurance, meanwhile, encompasses whole life, universal life and variable life policies, among others.

Zoes Kitchen a Gainesville treasureEditors note: Due to a production error, part of this column was omitted from last Sundays paper. It is reprinted here in its entirety with our apologies. Im 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 TASTE BUDDIES Genie NormanTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comHummus trio, from Zoes Kitchen Greek chicken pita, from Zoes Kitchen Mediterranean Tuna pita, from Zoes KitchenCOURTESY PHOTOS ZOES continued on 4D Festive Five will brighten holidays at Lake City MallThe Lake City Mall announced the opening of registration for The Festive Five, a five night event to kick off the holiday season featuring choirs, musicians, dance groups and more.

From staff reports Grown-ups only at Florida Museum of Natural HistoryGAINESVILLE --For adults who love feeling like a kid again, the Florida Museum of Natural History hosting special events this fall for the 18-and-older crowd, each with a new twist. These events make the museum available to lifelong learners, not just our youngest visitors, said Florida Museum educator Chelsea Collison. We have something for everyone. During the newest Guts & Glory GNV event, Fieldwork Fails: A Live Storytelling Event Sept. 20 from 6 to 9 p.m., scientists will share stories about the reality and randomness of working in nature. Admission is $15 person, or $10 for UF students with a valid Gator 1 card. Pre-registration is suggested. Everyone loves sharing embarrassing stories, and scientists are no different, said Florida Museum public programs coordinator Catherine Carey. Adults visiting the museum with children are so concerned with their kids having a good time that they dont get to enjoy the visit themselves. These events give grownups permission to enjoy the exhibits and not worry about naptime or homework. This years murder mystery dinner features a Halloween masquerade run by The Murder Mystery Co. These national experts in entertainment are bringing their spook-themed interactive event to the museum on Oct. 26 from 7 to 10 p.m. I think everyone wants to be the detective and try to figure out the murder, and its fun to dress up and enjoy an intriguing evening with friends, said Florida Museum educator Tiffany Ireland. Admission is $65, or $50 for museum MUSEUM continued on 4D

They have been married for 20 years. She says she hasnt been happy for several years and that its time to take care of herself. She wont be able to support herself and the children, but she doesnt seem able to grasp that reality. When I voice my concerns, she gets angry with me. Shes determined to go forward with this separation and says her kids will be fine. I say thats bull! She has also embraced an exercise and eating plan that seems radical to me and has a life coach who is also a psychic. I think shes having a midlife crisis. If it werent for what this is going to do to my grandchildren, Id keep my mouth shut, but Im sick with worry. Her siblings think she has lost her mind, so she has pretty much cut herself off from the family. When she became frustrated because she wasnt able to qualify for a house she wanted to rent, she lashed out at me. Im waiting for an apology, but Im realistic that Ill probably never get one. I feel like Im in mourning over the loss of this child. What do I do? -SHAKEN UP IN TEXAS DEAR SHAKEN UP: Your daughter is an adult. By now you must have realized you can no longer control her behavior. For the sake of your own mental health, accept that shes going to make her own mistakes. Do not accept financial responsibility for your daughter. Be as supportive of your grandchildren as you can be, because at some point you may have to take them in. As for her psychic lifecoach, you should know that unlike physicians, psychologists and social workers, life coaches do not belong to any organization that requires them to adhere to ethical standards. Your daughter should be made aware that there may be some risk involved in placing her future in that persons hands. DEAR ABBY: A dear friend and I decided to visit our old friend, Carol, who has been in an assisted living facility for a year. Carol has some dementia, but we took her -arm in arm -to a pizza restaurant at our mall. After we were seated and browsing the menu, a very handsome gentleman approached our table. He said we reminded him of his mother and insisted on treating us to dinner. We thanked him, he laid down a $100 bill and disappeared. We enjoyed a great dinner and left the change ($35) for the server. We would like to thank that nice gentleman again. He made our day. -GRATEFUL IN GEORGIA DEAR GRATEFUL: Your letter made MY day. Occasionally, I print letters about acts of kindness, and yours definitely qualifies. You and your friend were performing a good deed by taking your friend for lunch, and it was paid forward in record time. Its nice knowing there are good people out there. Thank you for sharing.

4D SUND AY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER washed and cut so that ever ything can be made from scratch. Grilling is the predominate method of cooking their Mediterranean inspired food. Youll be able to find some gluten free, Vegan and 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 flatgrilled 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 Hand-Made 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.

MUSEUMContinued From 1D Can cinnamon buns fuel 40-70 mile bike rides?By BARBARA QUINNMonterey County HeraldA reader writes: I have a question about eating cinnamon buns on a regular basis. My cycling group likes to ride 40 to 70 miles at least twice a week. They also like to eat cinnamon buns and have gone so far as to rank the best buns. I wonder, considering the high fat and sugar content of these sweets, is it a good idea from a health standpoint to eat one every time ones goes riding? I know the calories are probably burned off but I wonder about the fat and sugar ingestion and the impact on cardiovascular health as well as health in general. I guess what I am getting at, does massive exercise off-set bad dietary choices? Thanks. Tricia Great question, Tricia, Hard-working athletes like yourself need more energy (calories in food) than ... me, for example. And cinnamon buns certainly provide ample amounts of your two main sources of fuel carbohydrates and fat. Carbohydrates (sugars and starches in foods such as fruit, grains and cinnamon buns) provide more energy per unit of oxygen you breath than fat. When you are sucking for air on long rides, its beneficial to use the energy source that requires the least amount of oxygen per calorie, yes? One popular cinnamon bun contains 880 calories and 127 grams of carbohydrates, way more than most of us need at one time. Yet if you are cycling for 2 to 3 hours, you may be burning up 90 grams of carbs (360 calories) each hour. Well-trained athletes can also use calories from fat to fuel long rides, especially when your reserves of carbohydrates are depleted. One cinnamon bun contains 37 grams of fat, almost half of that from saturated fat. Thats a lot. Nutrition experts advise us to limit our daily dose of saturated fat to less than 10 percent of our daily calorie expenditure since this type of fat has been linked to inflammation a condition closely tied to heart disease and diabetes. A cinnamon bun might fit on your fuel-burning cycling days if you dont load up on other high fat foods such as burgers and milkshakes on the same day. Does massive exercise offset bad dietary choices? Yes and no. Nutrition experts look at your total diet, not one food, to evaluate your nutritional status. If you routinely eat a diet rich in high quality, lean protein foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and limit the greasy refined foods most of the time, an occasional high fat sweet treat wont throw you too far off the track.

Too bad for him.By ADESUWA AGBONILESacramento BeeFolsom, Calif., resident Brian Esola never had any formal training in construction or engineering he works in insurance. But at the beginning of this year, over the course of late nights and long weekends, he constructed an elaborate treehouse. At first glance, it looks like a small shed, painted deep blue with white trim and a red door, curiously floating 7 feet above the ground. But closer inspection reveals its not floating at all. Its mounted securely on a platform between two trees, with a ladder for access and another ladder on the inside going to the second story. Its big enough and sturdy enough to hold up to six grown men, according to Esola, and its fun for his four kids and their friends to spend time in. But after a complaint by an anonymous resident, the city determined the treehouse is not in compliance with codes. So theres a chance Esola will have to take it down. The city characterizes the treehouse as an accessory building, which is defined as a detached, subordinate building. Christine Brainerd, spokeswoman for the Folsom city manager, said accessory buildings must be at least 5 feet from property lines and no more than 15 feet tall. There are three problems with the treehouse. Its very close to the property line, Brainerd said. And its approximately 21 feet tall after you add its 7-foot elevation from the ground. It was also bolted to a sound wall without permission from the city. Before he started construction, Esola said, he took a look through the city codes to make sure he was in compliance. If a treehouse visitor wants to turn on a light, or use the bathroom, theyll come up short Esola didnt put in any electricity or plumbing because he knew that was against city codes. I did my homework, Esola said. Its not like I just threw this thing up. But when researching, he didnt see any ordinances pertaining to treehouses. Esola said accessory buildings are things like sheds and playhouses structures that are attached to the ground. If you type in the word playhouse on Google, you wont see a treehouse in any of the images for a reason, Esola said. It might be semantics, but I was going by (their) own definitions. After Esola was first notified of the code violations, one of his neighbors posted pictures of his treehouse on the Facebook group Folsom Chat. The posts comments section flooded with people supporting Esolas treehouse, lamenting its possible removal and offering to help. Folsom City Council member Robert Gaylord, who first heard about the treehouse through the Facebook post, reached out to Esola and offered to connect him with city officials who could help him resolve the problem. The biggest thing Ive done is just bring attention to the issue, Gaylord said. Honestly, (the treehouse) is a work of art. Its beautiful. As a resident its outdoors, its good for the kids and it just looks good. Its not just something that was put up and makeshift. So when I was contacted, I wanted to ensure that the resident had full attention. And after talking with city officials, Esola was given the opportunity to try and convince the City Council to revise codes to include treehouse ordinances before he has to take down his creation. So, Esola will have three minutes to present his case to in front of the City Council and if he can wrangle three votes from council members, his treehouse might not be on the chopping block. Esola stressed hes not angry with the city or its officials, adding theyve been more than accommodating during this process. If it comes to it, hes willing to take down the treehouse. But he views this as a chance to create new ordinances for the city that specifically pertain to treehouses. If were going to be a family-friendly city, maybe we should be groundbreaking in things like treehouse ordinances, Esola said. Why would we not propose to make specific ordinances (enabling) owners of homes in Folsom to work with the city to build a treehouse thats safe and pleasant to the eye? And if there is any place where an elaborate treehouse should be, Esola and Gaylord believe its Folsom. We are all bound by cellphones and PCs, and so having a treehouse outside definitely invokes an outdoor element. And thats what Folsom is all about, Gaylord said, adding that laws are required so we cant have everyone building a bunch of structures. Folsoms motto is Distinctive by Nature. And Esolas treehouse big, bright, straight out of a picture book is definitely distinctive, a structure that many seem to think embodies Folsoms spirit. So Tuesday, Esola will be making the case that the city should draft new treehouse ordinances in hopes that his creation will remain standing. Or, perhaps more aptly, floating. FF O LL SOM, CA LIFLIF JOS EE LL U I I S V ILLE ILLE GAS/Sacramento Bee/TNSLaurelye Esola 14, sits on a hammock under the treehouse built earlier this year by her father Brian Esola, 43. The treehouse is at risk of getting taken down due to violations of Folsoms city codes. Esola is proposing that the city draft new, tree house-specific ordinances.
